Here’s a quick tip to speed up Lightroom on an intel Mac. Select the program in the applications folder (single click), and then go to File>Get Info. In the General Panel, there is a checkbox to run the program in 32 bit mode. This is the default setting. Uncheck this box, and Lightroom will now run in 64 bit mode, speeding things up.
This is not available for G5 or earlier computers, nor for OS prior to 10.5.
On PC, you need to be running a 64 bit OS to install the 64 bit application.
I’ll be in Tampa this Thursday, from 6-8 PM doing a free program on the dpBestflow project at the International Academy of Design and Technology’s Digital Boot Camp. Like all of my currently scheduled dpBestflow appearances, this is sponsored by ASMP. (Thanks to the Central Florida chapter for making this one happen).
Here’s a map:
This presentation is a discussion of the nature of digital photography workflow, and how to create a workflow that is appropriate for your budget and skillset, as well as the objectives of the job at hand. This program presents a strategy for the use of the tools we’ve created in dpBestflow.org, as well as The DAM Book.
This is an entirely new presentation – built from the ground up with Richard Anderson over the last couple of months.
First come, first served. I’m told that the they have always been able to accommodate everyone who shows up, but that some people may not get seats, so you might want to show up a little early.
I’m venturing back into the world of Blogging, after a long hiatus. The php attack on the blog last year was a huge pain to deal with, and I’m very thankful to John Beardsworth for helping me purge the offending code. Hopefully it does not come back.
Since I’m headed out on the road starting this week, I thought it would be time to try and get back on the horse. At minimum, I’ll try to keep all my upcoming events posted. (of course, you can also look on the DAM Forum here:
and find out where I’m scheduled to be.
For now, I’ve got comments turned off, since that’s where the php attack came from originally. I’ll work over the next few weeks to get the old posts back up, and to see if I can get comments turned back on.
The blog was hacked by some friendly Russians (maybe). I’ve had to reinstall WordPress from scratch. I hope to have the older posts back up soon.
