Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.
All of the Members, Gurus, Moderators, and Administrators here are volunteers giving freely of their time and expertise to help other users, and work hard to keep a friendly and positive atmosphere that all can enjoy.
We understand that computers and software can often be frustrating, and Lightroom is no exception at times, but whilst venting is understandable, it's not very constructive. We're pleased to discuss those bugs in order to find workarounds, however we won't allow venting or constant complaints about Adobe. We're a privately run Forum, not affiliated with Adobe, and constant complaining just creates a negative atmosphere. There are other Forums where that behavior is acceptable, but this is not one of them.
We have a lovely atmosphere here, and we appreciate your help in keeping it that way.
