    Splitting a Lightroom catalog into two

    Thanks John & Johan. My concern comes from looking at the size of Lightroom data on my C:\ drive which is a smallish SSD drive. So would I be better off moving the catalog and previews, etc to another drive where I am not as concerned about drive space? I have a second SSD drive which would...

    Help? Lost ability to auto correct chromatic aberration?

    My bad. For some reason my display showed the manual tab, not the Profile tab. Not seeing the Upgrade section and then finding that later in the Transform group mislead me to thinking we had lost the correct CA. I see myself doing more straightening in Photoshop (PS) in the future than in LR...

    Help? Lost ability to auto correct chromatic aberration?

    Checking my version of Lightroom - it reports as 'Lightroom CC 2015.6" Going into the development module, I check Lens Correction. Oops this is different. No longer have 'Automatically correct Chromatic Aberration' (CA). Do have a section called Defringe. But no auto. Use the dropper to...

    Latest newsletter Tip of the week

    Really enjoyed the latest Lightroom Queen newsletter, Victoria. Especially liked the Tip of the week. Thought I might add that for landscape photographers, it is usually in the sky area of our images that shows up the dust bunnies the most. And having to pan up and down as shown in your tip...

    Importing images from second camera

    Cletus: I have already done so one I came across enough discussions from my Google search stating it didn't matter, and as i didn't want the leading underscore.

    Importing images from second camera

    Cletus: the more I think on it, the more I'll probably do nothing. If I actually load images from both cameras to the same folder, I'll let LR handle it with the -2 suffix. Johan: Just my being lazy. :) I'd simply place such a preset as a default metadata preset in the import screen. But it...

    Importing images from second camera

    Thanks, Cletus. You answered my question - LR does not have native conditional preset capability. I am not sure yet as to how I want to proceed. Though the procrastinator in me may decide teh issue by simply doing nothing. :grin:

    Importing images from second camera

    Tony Jay: After researching discussions on sRGB vs aRGB setting in camera, I discovered as you said, itf shooting RAW, it doesn't matter. Thanks for confirming that. Jim Wilde: Thanks for pointing that out. Apparently this is a feature added by a firmware upgrade which explains why I didn't...

    Importing images from second camera

    It's called 'RTFM' Sheesh. On the Canon 7D you have the ability to choose to record in sRGB or Adobe RGB. If you choose Adobe RGB, the camera uses the _MG_ prefix, in sRGB,it uses the IMG_ prefix. I had inadvertently selected Adobe RGB in the setup. Thanks to Cletus, Tony and Johan for...

When I imported my first batch of images, Lightroom changed the IMG_XXXX to _MG_XXXX. I assume this...
