    Import Collections not matching in import "add to Collection" option

    Hello photographers, I've found myself in front of some wired behavior from LR. When importing a small series of pictures, I tried for the first time, to add them to a collection. The problem is that, the folder hierarchy and content is in the import window is not matching my actual...

    Library module Very slow loading of image thumbnails in Library

    Hey Jim Thanks for the tips. Yep, my catalogue is small, I do analog photography am very selective of what I shoot (each shot costs money) I will create standard-size previews as I'm not indending any mobile / away from desk editing. Thanks

    Library module Very slow loading of image thumbnails in Library

    Hello Clee. Thanks for the info. I think that’s exactly what happened. I've looked at the LR preview file as see it’s about 250mg. Yet, my "old" preview file from the previous LR version is above 3Gb It seems to me that LR is only building the previews for the pictures when I have the...

    Library module Very slow loading of image thumbnails in Library

    Hello Paul, I haven't done anything proactive to "build" previews aside from the regular setting which is on when import the pictures in. Is there anything else that I must do proactively with this new catalogue ?

    Library module Very slow loading of image thumbnails in Library

    I've closed LRC and re opened. I noticed the Thumbnails which had already loaded in the first time where showing directly. Perhaps the process is due to the fact the LR is re-creating thumbnails?

    Library module Very slow loading of image thumbnails in Library

    I used to run an older version of Lightroom (V 8.4) on Mac OS Sierra. I've recently updated my OS to Mojave and was able to then update to the latest Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. I've only opened LRC a couple times since. I've noticed today that the image thumbnails in the Library are very...

    Develop module Full screen of picture

    Hello. Well for some reason the problem seems to be fixed. Now the behaviour does not happen anymore and LR does indeed full screen the images correctly. Wired.

    Develop module Full screen of picture

    Hey, yeah it makes sense. All my pictures have higher resolutions than the actual screen resolution so that was not the actual problem.

    Develop module Full screen of picture

    The screenshot is from the Application Preview, native to OSX not from Lightroom. Lightroom did not have this behaviour when I put a portrait picture in full screen. The image had black all around it and occupied 30% of the screen only.

    Develop module Full screen of picture

    No, all Lightroom has to do is like in Preview... Take the longest side of the picture and display that length entirely without crop. Let the rest follow with the same ratio and back around it.

    Develop module Full screen of picture

    Hey, the screen is at 2880 x 1800 but most of the pictures I'm handling are roughly around 3500x2500.

    Develop module Full screen of picture

    Hello, I'm struggling with something basic even though I've been using LR for a few years now. I believe Adobe made a changse in one of the updates which screw up this basic function. I'm on LR 8.4.1 Fullscreen an image, the shortcut is F. When I press F, to me this is not an image in Full...

    Writing EXIF description in LR ?

    Hello, Yep. I'm currently using LensTagger as a LR plugin for my workflow when importing analog scans. Indeed, I saw when using the plugin that a lot of LensTagger fields get written in the UserComment field. With this, I would say LensTagger real added value seems it's writting stuff in the...

    Writing EXIF description in LR ?

    Hey. If Description = Caption, then it means that either the LensTagger plug is also writing IPTC metadata not only EXIT or that Lightroom is doing some trick. I don't usually set the time when the picture was shot because it is too hard to track when 36 exposure which I sometimes shoot on 3...
