    How practical is it to use the base 13 model with 5K display? (looking for purchasing advice)

    The new base model of MacBook Pro, the one without Touch Bar, is theoretically capable of driving two 4k displays or one 5k display in addition to the internal one. My question is, with the Iris 540 GPU and a downgrade of CPU class (from a regular 13-inch Pro's 28/29W to Air's 15W), is it...

    Lightroom activation requirements?

    I'm considering purchasing a license for Lightroom 6, but I've become a little concerned at reports from Windows users that without a constant internet connection the software becomes hobbled. I'm also not entirely happy that I have to create an Adobe ID to activate the software initially. Can...

    How easy is it to use just a trackpad/keyboard (no mouse) for Lightroom?

    Right now I use a mouse for Lightroom, but that's because the trackpad on my Dell XPS is terrible. Does anyone edit just with trackpad/keyboard on a MacBook, iMac, or any other non-Apple machine? Or is it better to always use a mouse?

    Lightroom photo storage: internal vs. external

    In the past I have stored my Lightroom photos on an external FW800 drive. This was necessary due to limited internal drive space on my older iMac. Well, that iMac died and I got a new one with a 2TB Fusion drive (split into 2 1TB partitions). So I now have the space on my internal drive. My...

    Although we can't find any documentation for it, it appears you can now sync a raw file from an iPad to Lr desktop. We're talking about a raw that you import from the camera card into the iPad via the CCK and Photos. So now the raw (and a JPEG preview) are in the camera roll. Once you've...
