    Renaming .jpeg to JPG

    I did an experiment and changed the jpeg file suffix to JPG and imported them into LR. Everything seems to be fine with all the metadata etc. intact. But I will bear in mind the warning that you gave!

    Renaming .jpeg to JPG

    "JPG and JPEG may represent two slightly different file types". Wow, I didn't know that - in all my years in the photo business I had wrongly assumed that they were the same. Thanks for that and and the link to the "Image & Format Guide". I think I'll leave the files as they are! Thanks again!

    Renaming .jpeg to JPG

    I have a number of files within LR which have the suffix .jpeg and I want to rename them to .JPG. Because LR sees identically named files with .jpeg and .JPG as different files I want to clean things up and just have .JPG files. I've searched using Google but all the articles and YouTube videos...

    Lightroom running slowly today

    I am running Lightroom Classic v10.2 on an iMac with Catalina 10.15.7. Everything was fine but today Lightroom is running really slowly. I have checked that I haven't got lots of other progs open but still it runs slowly. AFAIK the only thing I did yesterday was to setup iCloud Backup for my...

    Removing Duplicates

    Fair point but I was thinking whether I could also use characters within the file name of my Fuji cameras. But when I play around with it it seems I can so it will probably be sufficient for my purposes. Thanks for your input.

    Removing Duplicates

    Yes that worked! Many thanks. But is there any other way to search within the filename on LR?

    Removing Duplicates

    For some reason LR has imported 2 copies of many files from my iPhone eg IMG_2469.HEIC IMG_24689-1.HEIC etc I thought that using the Duplicates 2 plug-in would find them but alas it finds none even though all the metadata is obviously identical I then thought that using wildcards might help...

    I have switched off snapshots on Carbon Copy, restarted my computer and now I only have 4 entries with [email protected] so definitely progress! I can live with this so thanks again for all your help, guys.

    Import Sources

    Unfortunately the instructions for deleting snapshots does not apply to later Mac OS including Catalina (see the first comment at the bottom) and when I tried it failed as it said the various instructions were not recognised. Thanks anyway.

    Import Sources

    Thank you Cletus and Johan. Just to clarify a few points from Cletus. "Firstly, note that local snapshots are created only if you are using an Apple laptop such as a MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro. Desktop computers such as iMac, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro do not have this feature." Hmm. My...

    Selective colour effect not working in Photoshop 21.2

    Johan you are a marvel! Exactly as you suggested and now it works perfectly! I wonder how many other people have tried and given up with this without ever realising that changing this setting solves it? And I wonder that Adobe don't give a hint about it somewhere. Anyway I am eternally grateful...

    Selective colour effect not working in Photoshop 21.2

    This link may help. I have copied my screen movements and have uploaded an MP4 file to my Dropbox account: https://www.dropbox.com/s/98ceokgae2xrao5/Photoshop%20Selective%20Colour.mp4?dl=0 You will see how when I click on the image to paint in the colour, the first brush stroke works but...

    Selective colour effect not working in Photoshop 21.2

    I'll upload larger versions but when I did before it said they were too large! I've scrapped the first image I sent as I don't think it explains anything. As I try to add further brush strokes nothing happens - you can see the green circle where the brush touched but any further strokes results...
