I have been going through old images.  They are all on LR as a catalog. I can filter by date and stars.  So a brilliant idea, go back 10 years.  So that is my project.  I split the selections photos (max 10 a year) with little or no family.  Family photos- significant or pretty.  My family is protec...

The new panel has a exclude blues.  Perhaps that does not go far enough.  Skies of any color do not need sharpening (perhaps an overstatement).  Sharpen and back off or mask or do over.  <br /><br />Some gurus say do not do capture sharpen.  One of our CM persons uses FocusMagic at 1 pixel.  The sam...

Profiling paper.  There are canned profiles.  I often buy Red River paper with its profiles.  Preferred would be to do your own.  But the print profile hardware is a little expensive for a hobbiest.  Glossy or luster papers do okay with canned profiles.  "fine art" papers much less so.  I assume and...

I have another more recent anomaly from CC 2014, not CM this time.  I get a column or two or three of transparent pixels running vertically down the image imported from ACR.  I tried the same images in CS6, no problem.  I am installing a new video driver to see if that helps.  Th streaks are only vi...

In the adobe CC 2014 folder, I pasted int the filter folder and the curvemeister3.8bf.  Adobe has two sets of folders for CC and cc 2014.

I too have had no problem with Adobe cc and installing CM.  I will try later today doing the auto install.

Dan M's action compared to standard seem magic.  He pushes his speed and the actions are "one-click".  CM methods are not terribly time consuming, and do a better job.  With practice, CM can be fast.  (unfortunately my day job takes over for long periods).  I rarely tackle 100 images, so time i...

I do not fix white balance when shooting RAW, but it might a minor (?) mistake.  It affects the histogram and the image on you LCD screen.  The RAW file has a jpeg imbedded, and that is wrong.

I agree with Greg about color.  I do look at shadows and highlights.  I use ACR to start to repair shadow and highlights  I am conservative about that.  Let CM to the heavy lifting.  I haven't worked with heavy color casts on a keeper recently.

I use camera calibration.
