    Hi Victoria,

    Logged in this morning to discover that you have reorganized the main forums. I think this is a good idea as many people had a hard time choosing where to post their questions. However, I am puzzled by the separation of the 1-6 (perpetual) v.s. CC (subscription). The differences between these seem to be so small that amost all the questions will apply to either.

    It might be more useful to offer some simple set of tags when a new post is created such as module i.e. Import, Grid/Loupe, Develop, Print, SlideShow. etc..

    I’ll take a guess at Victoria’s reasoning which was supported by those of us that you see here frequently. LR6 and earlier perpetual versions do not have the Lightroom Mobile integration and new functionality that are available w/ LRCC. So, it makes good sense to separate the two flavors of LR. Also, LR5 and older represent a smaller an smaller population of Lightroom Forum users.

    There is a reason, but you'll have to hold that thought for the minute.

    Great idea, I'll set up the thread prefixes for module.

    That's a statement that has my curiosity peaked. I'm assuming that something "interesting" is going to be announced shortly.

    There may be a job for you in the White House in the near future if you can keep saying that with a straight face. :nailbiting:

    I realize that you cannot say anything, but by making the changes and saying that we should stay tuned, I suspect that something will be announced shortly. Given your busy schedule, I cannot image that you just happened to have the time to make changes for something happening months away. Looking forward to watching the web for more information. Inquiring minds want to know!

    Speculation can be fun, but don’t read too much into anything. Time will tell.

    The reshuffle is a work in progress and could go any number of ways yet. It’s been on my to do list for a while, and a nasty cold moved a few nice simple brainless jobs like the reshuffle to the top of my to do list.

    Sounds good. The only problem is that you do not have any popcorn-eating emoticons to use while we wait for time to tell. :hungry:

    I was mostly kidding. You picked an interesting, and fun, set of emoticons, but I was a bit surprised that you did not go with some of the more traditional ones as well as there are a few that do a good job conveying messages in a lighthearted manner, thus helping threads from spinning out of control.

    If you find a smiley sprite you like, I'll take a look. I went with the default set, plus a single sprite set of extras, but I haven't looked too carefully.

    LOL every time they bring it a new version, I end up upgrading, but still haven't had time to play properly. They seem to be following in Adobe's footsteps this time, with all the complaints I've read about charging for another upgrade after all the problems with last year's release.

    all true Victoria when it comes to On1; however IMO there is more to like than dislike; atm anyway.
    I have just downloaded to latest beta version so if you see smoke on the horizon over the next few days it could be from me. :rofl:
    Lightroom is still 1st port of call for my pics and cannot see that changing any time soon -- On1 just does PS sort of stuff although I still use PSE12 for some jobs.

    I'm not too picky. I guess that I'm used to the set at mu-43.com where I post more often. It's really not worth a lot of time and effort in the grand scheme of things. I am happy here as well, just without a popcorn emoticon :( (which seems to not be needed that often, thank heavens).
