    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...

    Converting raw files to DNG

    I liked dng in the past because windows could read and display them .

    Converting raw files to DNG

    G'day; long time no chat! I'm still snapping away at mostly unimportant subjects for something to do --- still using Lr5 mostly; On1'18 (sometimes :() and Affinity :) has replaced Elements 12. Not sure where to post this old -- antique:) -- Lr5 stuff so you are welcome to move or remove...

    Nik Collection is back

    Something I have heard on the web (so its true LOL) be carefully downloading the DXO trial version if you already have Nik on your computer as you may well lose your Nik program until you pay the $49 (Au$64). More than happy to be corrected if that is not right :) Bit hard to add new features...
