    Previews confusion

    Thanks for you help.

    Previews confusion

    Apparently ... but the fact is that my max standard preview size is ever so slightly less than 1:1, and following your reasoning I would have to assume the program thinks that is close enough so as not to have to generate 1:1. Besides, when I did generate 1:1 it took forever, so it was clearly...

    Previews confusion

    I am still confused and obviously not getting it. What you said Johan was that "Only 1:1 previews are extra". If they are extra, i.e. on top of the pyramid of standard previews, and I generate 1:1 previews for all my images surely my "catalogue Previews.lrdata" should have grown quite...

    Previews confusion

    Ah ... but how do you explain the fact that my "catalogue Previews.lrdata" has barely grown after I generated 1:1 previews for about 100000 images?

    Previews confusion

    Thanks for all the info. What happens when I set 1:1 on import instead of standard? Surely, LR does not then generate standard previews as well? And when I say "never" to the delete option, does that mean they stay and are only deleted/updated when I edit a file, or do I need to generate them...

    Previews confusion

    Sorry, I thought I had mentioned that sufficiently in my original post. I have a 5K iMac (27"), which has 5120 x 2880, and LR CC defaults to 5120 in its auto setting.

    Previews confusion

    I do a lot of browsing and then even a 1-2 sec delay can be a bit of a bind. Besides, as I explained, I am trying to understand LR's previews. If the Standard Previews are just about the same size as 1:1 why not go for the latter? And how do standard previews relate to 1:1? Can't I set standard...

    Previews confusion

    Hi, I still find myself struggling with the various types of Previews in LR. I am on a 5K iMac and the auto Standard Preview generated on import is just short of 6000 by 4000, which is also the maximum size of my photos. When Standard Preview size and 1:1 are so close would I be better off...

    Import problem from SD card: no new images

    Not to worry. This is a weird problem and I now suspect that it may be due to a somewhat rickety card reader that started giving me other problems as well (like not being recognised at all by my Mac).

    Import problem from SD card: no new images

    Just returned from a day trip shooting wild horses. I used two cameras and upon inserting the SD cards LR Classic showed none of the photos I made today. It did show some older ones from a few weeks ago. I am using LR Classic Release 8.2; Camera Raw 11.2 on an iMac Mojave 10.14.4. The SD cards...

    Book module: maintaining image order

    Just a follow-up on my earlier mail. I have now figured out at least two other, much easier, ways to preserve the custom order in a folder and use this order for a book, thus avoiding having to custom sort things twice (once in the original folder and once again in the collection used as a basis...

    Book module: maintaining image order

    I agree. That used to be my standard routine as well. The problem is that I then have to also rearrange everything in the original folder (which I would like to have the same order as the book) because sort orders cannot be transferred easily. Since sorting takes a lot of time (when I do several...

    Book module: maintaining image order

    This is an old problem but extremely frustrating in that it creates a vast amount of unneccessary work for us that could easily have been avoided. I have a folder in which I have carefully ordered all the images in the order in which I would also like to use them in the photo book. When I click...

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    Sorry, I should have read your response more carefully.

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    I contacted Adobe support and guess what ... the "Export to PDF..." option has moved to the right bottom corner, where it normally says "Send Book to Blurb".
