I was just in the NAPP forums (a great place to learn by the way), and learned about the ACR update. Since I already am good on the gear compatibility side, I went to the readme.txt file to see if there were any other updates to the programs that I should be aware of (Podpress has made me very cautious about updating too soon…)
Turns out there are some LR issues with a few tools and with XMP sidecar files versus database entries. If this is all gibberish to you, then don’t worry you are probably fine. For the more technically inclined though, their readme file is something to look at before you upgrade ACR this go-around.
Proof positive that the old adage of “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” can still apply in a modern world. If you don’t have a specific need for the update (a very recent camera purchase), I’d hold off until the next update ships as this could break Lightroom to a degree, as well as prevent respecting of previous edits if you use the database option for XMP data.
In more CB-specific news, the last poll finally wrapped up today. With 30 responses, here was the final tally:
The newest poll is now up on the sidebar. 2 weeks does seem to return more meaningful information as that gives people enough time to respond. Feel free to chime in at your leisure. The question is: Does the current economic downturn had an impact on new photography-related purchases? For those reading in feed readers, stop in to see the options and vote! Let’s try to crack the 50-count this go around! 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone, Happy Shooting, and we’ll see you back here Monday morning!
