    Stopping Lightroom from automatically making corrections to Fujifilm XT-4 jpeg and RAW files

    When LR imports any file, it has to build a series of previews, from thumbnail sized up to 1:1, which are used to display the image in the grid or when you zoom in. Normally, it would do this by processing the raw file and applying Adobe's Camera Raw algorithms. However, when Embedded &...

    Stopping Lightroom from automatically making corrections to Fujifilm XT-4 jpeg and RAW files

    Might you have specified a Develop preset in the Import dialog? If you haven't, Import's Embedded and Sidecar option should build the preview directly from the JPEG and so you should see the Fuji-baked appearance. But if you apply any adjustment, then LR processes the raw data Adobe-style...

    Stopping Lightroom from automatically making corrections to Fujifilm XT-4 jpeg and RAW files

    Yes. I assume you're shooting raw + jpeg. So when you import, in the Preview options choose Embedded and Sidecar. Secondly, in Preferences ensure that you are not handling the raw+jpeg as separate files. What this does is import the raw files and build the initial preview using the jpeg...

    Sharing photos

    It's on the Settings tab - you're on "invite". Yes, it is only JPG that gets shared but the files that you sync from Classic LR can be whatever you want, and LrWeb does the converting when people download. You can test this by setting up the sharing and download option, then copying the...

    Sharing photos

    You've got an option to allow downloads. This doesn't require an Adobe account, unlike other options such as contributing

    Sharing photos

    No, I didn't say anything about Gallery. When the collection is in LrWeb, you share it by clicking this link at the top right.

    CaptureMonkey LRBarcodes Reader Plugin - replacement / alternatives?

    Maybe it just doesn't need to change, though this type of plugin often relies on a 3rd party component and that might be vulnerable to changes in the operating system. Definitely ask the developer.

    CaptureMonkey LRBarcodes Reader Plugin - replacement / alternatives?

    I've never heard of another. How do you know it is abandoned?

    Select sky bleeds

    My preference with Select Sky is to make a mask which combines it with one or more Linear Gradients set to Subtract and running from the horizon up to the topmost branches/buildings.. So I'm moving any feathering upwards, or in other words making the sky above the horizon less affected by the...

    Sharing photos

    Add them to a collection, set that collection to sync, and then in LrWeb share it and enable download in its settings.

    Select sky bleeds

    I've not really noticed this, and an example might be helpful. A sharp selection edge would easily become unnatural, so maybe you're seeing a "feathering" effect.

    Export EXIF data from JPEG to xmp file

    Still, one should not be afraid of distinguishing betweeen good and bad ways to do things, approaches that can be generally recommended and others that are of less value or only worthwhile once particular circumstances have been taken into account.

    Image Transmittal List

    Why not include a prefix in the export filename? For example: But you can also export a list of filenames with my List View plugin or LrTransporter.

    Raw+jpg file locations and workflow

    As someone who has mainly used Fuji for 5-6 years, I prefer to shoot uncompressed raw+jpeg because (unlike my Nikons) the raw files don't contain a full size embedded thumbnail. I do not treat them as separate files as this allows me to take advantage of the Embedded Preview option in the...

    Export EXIF data from JPEG to xmp file

    Steve has been in touch directly. My plugin Syncomatic will do the job - it’s specifically designed to take metadata and adjustments from one group of files to another, using the filenames to match them up. As a general rule, I would not shoot raw+jpeg. However, I do recommend it when your...
