I'm trying to import dng files.  I've tried another set of files from another directory but it stll crashes.  I'm using MacOS Sonoma 14.2.1 and have 32gb installed.  It used to work fine till about a couple of weeks ago, however it's been a few months since I last processed any photos.  I'd reinstall it but I can't find my original disk and serial number.

 

Can anyone out there make any suggestions please?

Lightroom 5 is ancient software. You can't (re)install it on MacOS Sonoma, because the installer is 32bits and Sonoma only supports 64bits applications.

The obvious choice is to take a subscription to Lightroom Classic.

Thank you John, that explains it well.  I didn't find this answer when I Googled.  Now I need to buy some new software, preferably with similar functionality as Lightroom.  Any suggestions?

I'd only use it 3 or 4 times a year, so not good value for money.

Then look for something else. DarkTable is a free Lightroom look alike.

And not be forgotten, the camera manufacturers often provide free software-

Canon:  Digital Photo Professional.

Nikon:  Nikon NX Studio.

 

Regards. My System: Lightroom-Classic 13.2 Photoshop 25.5, ACR 16.2, Lightroom 7.2, Lr-iOS 9.0.1, Bridge 14.0.2, Windows-11.
