    Lightroom 5 >Affinity Photo >Lightroom 5

    Thanks Clee and Jim; great to know you are still able to pass on your extensive LR knowledge. Very true Clee; it is an old program but still does what I need for organizing and first edits of my happy snaps -- this problem is more of an annoyance than anything . Likely started over 12 months...

    Lightroom 5 >Affinity Photo >Lightroom 5

    No one has any ideas ?? And a day later another week behind . All worked well (few hours) until Lr started playing games again with no rhyme or reason . Looking like put up with it or remove Lr and reinstall sometime when I'm in a good mood because of the so much that can go wrong . The real...

    Lightroom 5 >Affinity Photo >Lightroom 5

    Hello, long time since I needed your help and I'm too far behind to offer you much help Win10 PC /Lr5 Sorry; I hate trying to explain such problems. In the recent past I could open a tiff / jpeg into Affinity from Lr >save but not close with Ap adjustments >change colour label to purple in Lr...

    copy / move one keyword hierarchy to another Cat.

    One hierarchy with a long list of keywords and around 2.8 k of images disappeared --- NO WAY would I have done anything apart from maybe :whistling: deleting it by mistake :eek: I could use the second last backup and redo the work done sorting out LOTS of files/folders/keywords in the last 12...

    copy one hierarchy to another catalog

    Victoria; if I knew what I did ; I could likely fix it :whistling: . PS -- sorry; should have stopped here! :cool: This might give others a few ideas of what and what not to do. I had let Lr stuff get a bit (big bit) out of hand so am spending a lot of time sorting it out, even if I am not...

    copy one hierarchy to another catalog

    Yep; I broke it again . With a new PC I thought it a good time to sort out /reduce the keywords and while it has been going well I have a problem now of missing one repaired/sorted Hierarchy + keywords --- don't ask how as I have no idea ; naturally it has to be adobe's fault :sneaky: ...

    require Lr5 Disc two

    Many thanks Victoria and Paul for your thoughts; however I'm feeling rather smug (and relieved) atm as Lr5 is :whistling: happily on the new PC ; :sneaky: found a previous download from 2013 that I had completely forgotten all about Certainly was not looking forward to a life without Lightroom...

    Lr 5 switching too custom order

    Thanks for explaining . Seems a case of put up with it or go elsewhere . Not too much to match Lr on the market so i guess I will put up with it. I'm am slowly getting a better photo filing system sorted for post Lr days . After a massive stuff up by the computer fixer [and me] I have bigger...

    Lr 5 switching too custom order

    No --- I think what I'm doing is >dng >tiff>affinity>save back to Lr Started this about 6 hours ago before trying find a "pattern" --- loaded and closed a lot of different files and Lr didn't change to custom sorting . That is until I wasn't looking or thinking about it and all of a sudden it...

    Lr 5 switching too custom order

    G'day; it's been awhile so my old faithful Lr5 must be behaving. So glad I had it and didn't think I needed Lr6 or beyond I usually set 'sort' to File name mostly, however Lr is switching to custom order or added order -- usually happens when I send a file to an external editor like Affinity...

    Lightroom only subscription

    Thanks Victoria; sort of doubted it myself. Au$15 down here and I agree that is pretty good value. It's the sort of "locked in" I don't like

    Lightroom only subscription

    G'day; it's been awhile . I was getting a bit left behind with my old faithful lr5 which basically does what I need. But the question is; has there been any mention / thought that Adobe would have a lightroom only subscription as some stage . I don't need Ps or the Cloud part. Not even sure I...
