    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...

    Unable to register for the Summit from my laptop. Site totally blocked

    Thanks everyone for trying to assist. I called McAfee and the agent got on my system and tweaked the settings and now it works fine. The interesting thing I learned is that they ship the software set up to scan for viruses and do system cleaning at 4AM ...when most computers are turned off. If...

    Unable to register for the Summit from my laptop. Site totally blocked

    I have McAfee. I came with this new laptop. When I expand that "Learn More" it shows this: My connection is obviously fine or I wouldn't be able to see every other site I go to. Chrome is my default browser and already has access to the network so nothing I can do there. I don't really want to...

    Unable to register for the Summit from my laptop. Site totally blocked

    Tried numerous times. I am not having any problems accessing other sites. Even tried via an incognito window and got same result: Even though it appeared to be a warning, I still couldn't get past it to register on my laptop. Finally resorted to using my phone to register and that worked fine...

    New Laptop coming at $2300 expense due to programming issue with LR

    Thanks for getting back to me Victoria! Didn't expect that. Regarding drives, I have been connecting external drives and or switching them on or off using the connection buttons on my 10 port USB hub. as well as an external drive that connected via USB-C. I didn't necessarily have LR running...

    Link in email about the Lightroom Virtual Summit just generates an error message

    I received the email about the Lightroom Summit. When I click the "by clicking here" link for more information I get this: I'm online and my internet is otherwise just fine. I'm not blocked on anything else.

    New Laptop coming at $2300 expense due to programming issue with LR

    Thanks for the interest in this. You're right. The old laptop definitely underwent lots of surgery. I got my new laptop. It came with 16g of ram and I've upgraded to 64g It also came with a 256g NVMe M.2 main drive plus a 1tb HDD for data. There are two NVMe M.2 drive slots so I added a 2 tb...
