[Updated] Lightroom 2015.2 - New Import Dialog is Not Good by Jared Groneman


[So... after the next update of Lightroom they reverted it back to the old style import dialog. Yay internet pressure!]

Lightroom got a not so good facelift with version 2015.2
3 Quick Critiques:
1) The new interface is poorly designed (reminiscent of Final Cut X)

2) More importantly one of my favorite features allowed a user to easily see where files were going to be copied/moved to in the previous interface (subfolder or by date). This is now not available.

This was very helpful to see where your photos were going.

3) If you do import to the wrong folder there is no move option anymore when selecting existing files.

Not a step in the right direction. Software programming is hard and you can't please everyone. If you want to make the interface simpler, that's great. Just don't completely remove useful features users need. Learn from FinalCut X's mistakes Adobe.

Shots: DC United vs Toronto FC by Jared Groneman

I recently got tickets to attend a DC United game, that of course meant I needed to inform Leanne Elston I would be attending the game. Leanne's a friend, DC United Fanatic, and a contributor to Black and Red United. She introduced me to the PR team from DC United and the next thing I knew I found myself with a pass to take photos on the pitch. Below are a few shots from the game.

It was a great time. I got to talk to some other photographers with massive lenses and experience shooting what next to nature photography has to be one of the most difficult subjects to capture. I must say there were moments where I lost focus on what I was shooting being more interested in if they were shooting. In the end DCU was not able to pull out a win, but I'm looking forward to the next time when they do.
