Galveston Harbour

By GeorgeP
The current collection of oil rigs and offshore support boats in Galveston Harbour.

My software is getting old and I would normally have processed the parts of this panorama using Lightroom 5 to correct the original RAW files and export 8-bit JPGs for each part file. These files would be combined in Hugin to stitch the panorama that I save as a JPG. This week, I finally decided to take a few steps to upgrade my software. Doing everything (process and stitch) using the 16-bit DNG files in the latest version of Lightroom is so much easier! Maybe I'll stay with an Adobe subscription after the 7-day free trial ends! Now, do I need to upgrade my camera and computer as well?

You might need to upgrade your computer--- definitely need to consider putting the Adobe Lightroom on an external hard drive and work on it there ( depending--or course-- on how much room is on your computer to use and store images---

I will say--- go for it-- you will love it!

I keep my main Lightroom catalog and images on an external drive and the current year images on the local drive . . . backing them up on a monthly basis to the external drive. That external drive is also copied onto another drive. That seems to work . . but the thought of having to "re-build/re-load" a new computer with software, add-ins, presets, etc. fills me with dread. I just don't know any shortcuts and given the way windoze programs hide important files and information a simple copy hasn't been an option since .ini files disappeared.
