Absolutely it is horses for courses!

I rarely use layers - masks in Lightroom do 90% of what I do with my images - I don't have the time to mess generally - even now in these weird times!

RAW previews load quickly, but jpgs can take ages (I've noticed this in LR too - sometimes they don't resolve at all in LR - possibly my graphics card).

Graphics card or memory - though you would expect the RAW to be more intensive than Jpegs.

In Brighton, there's a lifesize black cat sculpture about 20 feet up on the corner of a light coloured building. It's probably visible in Google streetview (Old Steine at the Palace Pier end, near to Pool Valley, west side of the building). I have a digital photo of it, taken from below, so think sky on one side of the frame, light cream building on the other, and centre stage a black cat that's just a silhouette in the out of camera jpg. Using the raw version it's clear that full detail is there, no mean feat with a shiny black onject.

Raw is well worth using if you have extreme conditions. Or just want to be able to underexpose a bit to preserve highlight details (which are often available as well). If you can retain both you can use raw as insurance.

Have fun, and keep healthy.

I couldn't find the cat on Google Street View.
May the Force be with you.

Well my first foray into LR hasn't been a success. Each time I open it up on my Mac, its suffered permission issues and I can't do anything. I have tried to fix it via a google search, but haven't yet found the right solution. Hopefully I can put this right soon.
Photoshop has been more of a success. In many respects its not hugely different to PSE, just seems offer a lot more.
I clearly have an awful lot to learn, but positive about this. (At the moment!!! :uglystupid2:)

That's what I would have thought too. Very odd that larger files that require interpreting open instantly in both apps, but jpgs can take an age. It does only seem to be LR and ON1 though, ACDSee opens everything really quickly.

Re LR, I'm sure there must be a solution out there. With LR6 on Windows I sometimes get 'server is busy' when trying to open. The CC version is OK. When you get it going watch out for the print module - whoever is responsible for that should be put on tea making duty for the rest of their career  :knuppel2:

Photoshop really is the best editing app out there in very many ways, but in a few it's a bit of a dinosaur. A few examples - best blend if controls, best luminosity masking capabilities, superb actions, awful clunky frequency separation and basic dehazing. Excellent selection tools, interface looking very old fashioned now.

Anyway, enough of my wittering, you'll find your own way and have a huge amount of fun in doing so. Bon chance!

I have done a lot of googling and nothing easy/clear. Going to back up my computer to a hard drive and try something that hopefully will work.

Hopefully this will show it. I'll admit I had to search back and forth a bit, even knowing where it was.
