• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

    iOS live photos to Lightroom classic via Lightroom CC on iOS

    Yeah, at the end a live photo is nothing more than a combination of a photo and a short video. Hence, it makes sense that you get those two files when exporting from Apple Photos. So, you've just found your answer. Just export your live photos from the Photos app on your Mac and then import...

    iOS live photos to Lightroom classic via Lightroom CC on iOS

    As far as I know there's no way to preserve the live part of a live photo outside of Apple's ecosystem. That's not Lightroom's fault, but probably a restriction set by Apple. Maybe you can find an app that can export a live photo as a video out of the iOS Photos app? I've never searched for...

    Syncing Bug/Problem

    Okay, I solved it by clicking on one of the photos that showed up in LRCC's preferences >Lightroom Sync tab which brought me to the web version of Lightroom. There, I saw what the issue was for every photo (as suspected all photos were from my old phone and weren't yet uploaded) and I was able...

    Syncing Bug/Problem

    Thanks! That was already helpful! Looks like several photos from my iPhone are affected. 14 show the status "downloading" and 13 are "pending". Now I have to find out how to resolve this issue. I switched phones a while back and I suspect it has something to do with it.

    Syncing Bug/Problem

    Lightroom CC says that 12 photos are currently syncing to the cloud: The problem is, it shows this message for several weeks now and I can't find the bug. I let my Mac run last night with no other application opened and I have a fast internet connection. This morning, the same message with...

    Possible to have a workable workflow solely with the iPad app?

    Gotcha! Don't hold this against me as I'm not 100% sure, but I think that if you're instructing Lightroom mobile to keep the originals on the device, the "library" gets automatically uploaded with the normal iCloud backup of the phone. No need to keep the originals in the camera roll and sync...

    Possible to have a workable workflow solely with the iPad app?

    Not that I know of, but what comes to mind is that you can't do HDR merges and panorama stitching with LR mobile yet. I was recently involved in a similar discussion on another forum and you might wanna check that out. (I hope it's allowed to link this here). It is my understanding that this is...

    Personal style and workflow getting back to basics

    I changed my import settings so my preferred camera-matching profile would be applied to all my new photos instead of the default Adobe profile. So, for my Olympus camera, the Camera Natural profile is applied by default now. It's a better starting point for post-processing in my opinion. I...

    Reducing local storage on iPad and iPhone

    You could turn on "Only Download Smart Previews" in Lightroom's settings. That way, I think, the locally stored originals would get replaced with the much smaller smart preview once the originals were uploaded to the cloud, right?

    Which to edit?

    Do you run Lightroom mobile on your phone? If so, chances are high that it automatically imported the photos from your camera roll in the background. Chances are also high that Canon Connect put the photos you transferred into the phone's camera roll... in a JPEG format. And there's your...

    Which to edit?

    That's almost impossible. If you really shot RAW only and if you're importing directly from the SD card into Lightroom Classic, then I don't see any reason why you'd end up with a RAW file (CR2) AND a JPEG. The only other thing I can think of is that a version of these photos was already present...

    best way to deal with large backlog of unprocessed photos

    Maybe you wanna listen to Jeff Harmon's Photo Taco Podcast episode "Culling Like a Pro": Photo Taco – Culling Like a Pro This helped me to find my own workflow which is based on Jeff's input, adjusted to my liking, and currently looks like this: Import all photos Copy photos to cull into a...

    Help, coloured squares appearing on images imported into LR from PS

    I'm glad your issue is resolved, but just to make sure you understand this: there's absolutely no need to export an image as PSD and then import it back to Lightroom after editing it in PS. Instead, use the "Edit in Photoshop" functionality directly in Lightroom, which opens the image in PS...

    Mac OS Mojave Update - Yay/Nay

    Mojave's most compelling feature is the dark mode, so if you're into that, then you should probably upgrade. I didn't think I was but since I upgraded, I run my system in dark mode and I like it a lot. The rest are mostly under the hood improvements. In general, I'd say it's always a good idea...

    How could one change / create a shortcut?

    The plugin worked with LR Classic 7. I'm not using it at the moment so I'm not 100% sure if it works with 8. Just try it and let us know.
