Canon Pixma Pro-100/Lightroom 4 printing problem

I can print very easily from other applications mac, but when I try to print with the exact same set up from Lightroom 4 I get this error: Starting manual feed printing. 1. Load a sheet of paper into the manual feed tray. 2. Press the printer's RESUME button to start printing. It is the exact same set up that works with other applications but I still keep reloading the paper and pressing the resume button but it still doesn't work, what is wrong? Please help! [more inside]

Easy way to manage iPhone photos and iCloud photo backups?

I'm getting frequent alerts on my iPhone that my free 5gb of iCloud storage is full. Most of this is from years of photos on my phone--in fact, that's pretty much the only thing on my phone I would care about having backed up. I also think most/all of the images on my phone are already backed up to my computer in Lightroom. Is there a convenient/automatic way to handle what photos stay on my phone and what photos are backed up to iCloud? [more inside]

Photo Organization with Visual Browsing Capability? Or Just Tag It All?

I want to improve my digital photo organization at work, and I don't care about anything in iPhoto except Events. Unfortunately, I really appreciate being able to visually browse Events as a central database of every photo upload ever. It feels like there's no easy visual browsing in the Adobe suite, is this true? Should I just get better at using keywords in Bridge, or is there something magical in Lightroom that I don't know about? [more inside]

Looking for tools or techniques to sort a photo library while on the go

I'm looking for a way to sort through my mountain of photos while I'm on the go, using an iPhone. (I shoot in RAW, so I guess it would need to involve exporting small JPGs to a Dropbox folder or an app.) I don't need to rate the photos, only flag/unflag/set as rejected (like Lightroom). The catch is that I'd like the changes I make on the go to somehow sync back to Lightroom on my computer. Is there an app for this that comes to mind, or any ideas you guys could suggest? Thanks!

Help me design an ebook!

I just finished writing a novella length book. I want to publish it as an ebook readable as a pdf or on an ipad or what have you. It’s picture-heavy (with very high quality photos.) Probably every page will have pictures. I want the design to be magazine-like, with the words many times ‘on top’ of the pictures. I have Photoshop and a decent knowledge of it and I just got Lightroom, but I don’t know much about how to use it yet. I think I’d like to design (at least some, if not all) the pages in Photoshop. I have a lot of questions: [more inside]

Mo' camera, mo' problems- Lightroom vs. Aperture, 2013 edition

I finally made the jump to a prosumer camera (Sony NEX-6), mainly to take pictures of my painfully photogenic boy. Now I'm faced with a dilemma of what to do with the photos. I currently use iPhoto, rather messily, and am looking at Aperture vs. Lightroom as my next step. [more inside]

Tablet advice for Lightroom

I'm thinking of getting an Intuos 4 tablet for my photo work (Lightroom, Photoshop). Obviously, it's the bees knees for Photoshop--anyone using it with Lightroom (where I do most of my editing)? Which version to get? Thinking the medium or the slightly smaller wireless version--do they have enough real estate for effective use with a 23/24" Apple Cinema Display? Lastly, are there any rumors about an impending refresh? The wireless version was released over a year ago, and the wired versions were released almost two years ago. [more inside]

Yet another "what laptop should I buy?" question...

So it's time for a new laptop - if my most-intensive task is going to be Lightroom 3, perhaps with some iTunes or Chrome/Pandora at the same time. Do I *need* (or even want) an i5? an i3? Is the difference noticeable? 4GB RAM? More? Degree of difficulty: I haven't bought a new computer in 4 years, so I'm a little out of touch with what's "current" [more inside]
