    Catalog and filenames do not match: bug? Please advise

    After a few hours of effort I have a bash script that allows me to rename all of my files to the names that LR expects them to have. I am more and more convinced that I encountered a computer hardware or software error but since I will be upgrading both in the near future, I will not dwell on...

    What do you wish you knew when you were getting started with Lightroom?

    I hear over and over that you don't "save" your work in LR. Now I am intrigued. I need to get a hold of your book! Which one is it? (I see that you have more than one on your website).

    Catalog and filenames do not match: bug? Please advise

    Tony, Thanks for the pointer. I did realize the LR can locate photos but as far as I understand, it can only find one at a time. If my problem were different and the photos had the correct name but were simply in another folder then I think that LR could locate them all in one fell swoop. Since...

    Catalog and filenames do not match: bug? Please advise

    Catalog and filenames do not match: bug? Please advise

    First a little background. I am using LR 2.7 on Snow Leopard. My workflow involves three catalogs: 1. I import into this and do the initial work of key-wording, developing, deleting, etc... about once a year (should be more often) I import these into catalog 2 and export them for catalog 3. 2...

    What do you wish you knew when you were getting started with Lightroom?

    Victoria, I see that you already have a lot of extensive and well written replies from more knowledgable people than myself. For me the biggest confusion in the beginning (and still I must admit I am not totally clear on this) is about what data is stored where. For example, exactly what...

    Greetings from Switzerland

    Hello, I am popping in to say hello and introduce myself before I head over to Catalog Management and post my first "Help me!" plea. I am a longtime fan of photography and have spent many an hour in a darkroom. The work in the darkroom was for me more than half the fun of photography. With the...
