    PDF Files question

    Further to this I found the shortcut Alt-I does not invoke the Import Module (laptop just beeps), but Library/Plug-in Extras/Any File/Import does. so I'll just do it that way. I let John Ellis know as well.

    PDF Files question

    Hi again, I downloaded and installed that plugin and had to email John Ellis the following: Hi John, Hope this finds you and yours well. John Beardy on the LR forum recommended this plugin for me because I have model releases and other information I like to file with the shoot photos, and...

    PDF Files question

    Thanks, but ... Arbitrary: "based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system" Not sure what to make of that answer John...? I've never thought LR was random or on a whim ...

    PDF Files question

    Hi there, I get all my model releases in PDF form, and often get a bio of the model or company I'm shooting for in PDF form as well. For simplicity, I file all those with the images for that particular photoshoot. Sometimes ...for proofing I make a little booklet for the customer that can be...

    Brush icons in the way

    Thanks guys. I found it staring me in the face! Switched it to Auto and that seems to help. Intended to send this shortly after posting but got company and was away from the laptop until just now. I used to think I had a magnificent grasp of the obvious!

    Brush icons in the way

    Hi there, Is there a way to hide brush icons so they aren't in the way? Photoshop doesn't show them so I'm wondering why they have to be there in Lightroom. Here's an example: I find if I use multiple brushes everything gets cluttered when using any brushes so I'd like to find a way to hide...

    Google Photos plugin obtained from Adobe is not working at all

    Further to this I followed your link to the Where to find it and then followed the process and got it installed. It is working but painfully slowly. Not near as fast as the drag and drop method I adopted on my own. I'll try it on raw files and tiffs since it will export as a jpg without having...

    Google Photos plugin obtained from Adobe is not working at all

    Thanks for the advice John. Wow ...that's a pretty bad lash on Adobe's own store. I think I'll just request a refund since it doesn't work, can't be found in LR even though Creative Cloud confirms it is installed, and support for it seems very thin. I've stumbled onto a workaround. I open...

    Google Photos plugin obtained from Adobe is not working at all

    Hi there, I have a bunch of photos I decided to archive on Google Photos. Google' own Upload option keeps crashing on Chrome, Chrome Incognito and even on Edge. I contacted their support so they are aware of their issue. I looked for another way and found this program being offered on Adobe...

    Can't save from Photoshop as a normal jpeg image

    This gets more and more interesting. It would be nice if Adobe would simply revert to allow jpegs in the normal Save as dialog. I'd also like to see an option added to all save or export dialogs ...to add that file to the Lightroom catalog if it got into Photoshop from LR to begin with. It...

    Can't save from Photoshop as a normal jpeg image

    Thanks guys. I did find a workaround. I selected Save as Copy and that opened a dialog that let me select the file on disk and either overwrite it or save with a different name. This just came up suddenly and only with files I opened from Camera Raw after enhancing. I've saved thousands of...

    Can't save from Photoshop as a normal jpeg image

    I enhanced a jpg in photoshop so that I could crop in and not lose as much detail Once the dng was in Lightroom I selected Edit in/Photoshop. There I selected the subject onto a new layer then blurred the background I then flattened the image and went to the Save As dialog and found there is no...

    Managing Collections

    Problem solved, hopefully. I looked in the wrong place and just found Julienne Kost's post about it and am reading that now. So simple ...hit the "-" key. Wow ...I expected something convoluted after reading a lot of online threads that implied all the photos would get removed.

    Managing Collections

    I have lots of old 'collections' and 'smart collections' that I don't need anymore. I don't want to delete the photos ...I just want to delete their presence in a collection and in many cases delete the collection without deleting the photos. I'm finding it very difficult to even get...

    Having Import problems

    Hi there, I must be doing something incorrectly with respect to importing. I got a new phone, a Samsung S21Ultra, which takes fairly decent photos so I'm using it as my walkaround/backpackaround etc. camera now instead of lugging an SLR. At first I was creating the necessary folder in Windows...
