Keeping track of their memory cards just got a whole easier for you with our Secure Pixel Pocket Rockets. They are designed with zippered pockets for maximum security in holding multiple card sizes, such as six CF memory cards, or six XQD memory cards, or 12 SD memory cards, or multiple Micro SD memory cards.
 
In addition to the zippered closure, the Secure Pixel Pocket Rockets can be mounted on belts, or attached to clothing or bag with the removable lanyard. They feature a clear identification window.
 
Our existing memory card holders, the Pixel Pocket Rocket, Pee Wee Pixel Pocket Rocket, and the SD Pocket Rocket, are now available in black. The additional color presents an optional organizational strategy: keep empty cards in one color and used in another. They all have been updated to account for modern media sizes.

When the landscape is attractive, incorporating it into your wildilfe photography is a great idea. The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens is my go-to lens for this scenario. The focal length range keeps both the animal and the background large in the frame and provides plenty of framing flexibility.
 
A partly cloudy day sometimes provides ideal lighting. This image was captured just before the shadow of a cloud reached the bull elk, leaving the surrounding background dark, helping the bull and its antlers stand out.
 
A larger version of this image is available on Flickr.

From Adobe:
 
This release of Lightroom Classic CC rolls out new features and enhancements such as customization of Develop Panel, Add to Collection option in auto-import settings, Grid Snap option in book module, other enhancements, support for new cameras and lenses, and bug fixes.
 
Customize the order of Develop panels
 
With this release, you can now drag the Develop module panels in the order you would like to see them in.
 
To customize the Develop panel menu, do the following:
 
  1. Right-click (Win) / Control-click (Mac) on the header of any panel.
  2. Select Customize Develop Panel from the context menu that opens.
  3. In the Customize Develop Panel dialog box that opens, drag the panel names in the desired order.
  4. Click Save. To restore the default order, click Default Order before Save.
  5. Relaunch Lightroom Classic to see the Develop panels in the new order in the Confirm dialog that opens.
For detailed information, see Customize the order of Develop panels.
 
Add photos from a watched folder to a Collection with Auto Import
 
In the Auto Import settings, you can now use the Add To Collection option to directly pull photos from a watched folder into a specified Collection.
 
The Auto Import feature monitors a watched folder for photos and automatically imports them into the Collection you've set as the destination. After you set up a watched folder and specify a destination Collection in the auto-import settings, you can simply drag photos into the watched folder. Lightroom Classic CC automatically imports those photos in the specified Collection, allowing you to bypass the import window.
 
To add photos from a watched folder to a Collection, do the following:
 
  1. Go to File > Auto Import > Auto Import Settings.
  2. In the Auto Import Settings dialog box, set up a watched folder and select the Enable Auto Import option.
  3. In the Destination area of the dialog box, select the Add to Collection check box. Lightroom Classic now displays a list of all your Collections.
  4. Select any Collection as your destination for auto-import.
  5. Optionally, you can also click Create Collection to create a new collection and select it as the destination for import.
  6. Click OK.
For detailed information on photo import on tethering, see Import photos automatically.
 
Align photos in a Book layout with the Grid Snap guides
 
You can now easily align photos in a Book layout using the Grid Snap option in the Guides section. In Grid Snap, choose either Cells to align the cells of two photos with respect to each other, or Grid to align photos with the grid guide lines.
 
On moving the photo, it would snap into place based on the selected setting. By default, the Grid Snap option is set to Cells.
 
For more helpful information, see Create photo books.
 
Duplicate preset handling
 
With this release of Lightroom Classic CC, if you attempt to create a duplicate preset with the same name under the same group, a Duplicate Preset Name dialog box opens with options to:
 
  • Replace - Select this option to keep only the latest preset with the same name in the group
  • Duplicate - Select this option to keep two presets with the same name listed in the same group
  • Rename - Select this option to append a numeric extension to the name by default or rename it yourself
For detailed information about working with Develop presets, see Work with Develop presets.
 
Show partially compatible presets
 
On opening a photo in the Loupe view in the Develop module, some presets may not appear in the Presets panel due to incompatibility with the selected photo, such as camera profiles that are not applicable to the current photo or presets that only apply to raw files. The non-compatible presets are shown as faded and in Italics style in the Presets panel in Develop.
 
To see all presets even if they are not compatible with the current photo, do the following:
 
  1. Open a photo in Loupe view and click Edit.
  2. Select Preferences from the drop-down menu.
  3. Select Presets under the Preferences panel.
  4. In the Visibility section, select/deselect Show Partially Compatible Develop Presets to show/hide partially compatible develop presets.
For detailed information about working with Develop presets, see Work with Develop presets.
 
Photo merge enhancements
 
  • Photo merge: Requirements for merge operations that could have led to merging failures in earlier versions have now been relaxed. Now you can merge images with differing dimensions, focal lengths, and orientation.
  • Photo merge preview caching: Lightroom Classic now caches the previews generated for Photo Merge operations. This improves performance and provides a better user experience.
  • Single-step HDR-Pano merge: Now you can perform single-step panorama HDR merge using smart previews.
For more helpful information on merge operations, see Create Panoramas and HDR Panoramas.
 
Performance enhancements
 
  • Improved sync reliability and stability.
  • Improved performance while doing batch operations such as import, preview generation, DNG conversion, and export.
  • Improved grid scrolling performance on Hi-DPI displays.
  • Improved performance when switching between Develop and Library Loupe.
Other enhancements
 
  • Cancel on exit: With this release, you would see a confirmation dialog on exit so that you can choose to cancel exiting from Lightroom Classic CC. If you select Don’t show again checkbox from the confirmation dialog, you need to reset warning dialogs (Preferences > General > Reset All Warning dialogs) to see the confirmation dialog on exit again.
  • Color Labels for folders: Support has been added for color labels for offline folders. For more helpful information, see Create and manage folders.
  • Support for Photoshop Elements 2019 catalogs: Support has been added for importing Photoshop Elements 2019 catalogs in Lightroom Classic CC. For more helpful information, see Import photos from Photoshop Elements.

The following information was provided by Datacolor; we are sharing it for the benefit of our readers. Color calibration is a vital part of the photographic process and we personally rely on Datacolor products (purchased online/retail) for our own display calibration needs.
 
From Datacolor:
 
The need to have a calibrated monitor is of paramount importance, but very often overlooked. Every photographer knows they should be calibrating their monitor, yet many still don’t bother with it, seeing it as a complex and time-consuming task that will hinder instead of help their workflow process.
 
You want to be able to trust your monitor, as it’s the window to your digital photography and the gateway allowing you to view the true image. However, this would not be the case if you have a non-calibrated monitor, as your colors might not look how you intended due to skin tones being off, crucial shadow detail being missed or whites not being as pure as they should or need to be.
 
Photography Workflow
 
Making monitor calibration a key part of your photography workflow eliminates factors such as tiredness, human error, and the lack of dependability you will have by solely relying on your eyes to adjust the monitor correctly.
 
You want all on-screen images to match the initial shot taken, and using a screen calibrator is crucial to this process. Datacolor’s Spyder5 will measure light and color that appears from your screen, and make corrections to ensure the colors and details of your image are displayed as accurately as possible.
 
Using Different Monitors
 
Every monitor displays colors differently. Just because your images look accurate on one monitor doesn’t necessarily mean they will be the same on another screen you use. As they are not built ready-calibrated, their colors will in fact shift over time. Not calibrating properly and using different monitors can lead you to wasting unnecessary time editing, with your images on screen not displaying the true colors or details of your photos.
 
Using a colorimeter to an industry color reference standard not only gives you refined color accuracy for better print matching, but will eliminate the guesswork out of image editing, helping you to save time and efficiently manage your workflow better.
 
Regular Calibration
 
Staying up to date with calibration is vital, as making a regular habit of calibrating your display on a monthly basis will give you confidence your edited images will always match your prints best as possible. Also determining optimal monitor brightness, calibration will keep your monitor fresh with the display’s output intensity and stops you from needlessly buying abundant amounts of ink and paper.
 
Without calibrating your monitor, you can’t fully trust the colors you see on-screen, which then leads you to make questionable editing decisions, and waste time, paper and ink on re-printing as the color on your images don’t appear right.
 
To ensure printed images are as close of a match as to what you see on screen, an accurate color calibrated screen is the best starting place.
 
Datacolor’s eBook
 
If you’re serious about photography, taking advantage of color management tools in your workflow to prepare your images will save you time, effort and money. Furthermore, if you’re planning to edit or view your images, using a reliable colorimeter to profile your monitor and calibrate any device can only help improve your process and photos.
 
To help photographers and videographers of all standards understand color management better, Datacolor has launched an extensive color management eBook, ‘Spyder5 eBook: Color management can be easy’. All six chapters are available for you to download here.
