    Export Lightroom catalog to Bridge

    No, Bridge is just like Windows Explorer and can view folders and their contents. You can save metadata in LR using Metadata > Save Metadata to Files, and Bridge will read this information. But it's standard stuff like titles, ratings, captions, keywords, and not the Lightroom data organisation...

    Documenting Folder Color Meanings

    "You can only use one color label set at a time in Lightroom. " Yes "So, if you are applying color labels to thumbnails, the the same color label applies to thumbnails, folders and collections.." Not really. Red can mean "xyz" when applied to thumbnails, "abc" when applied to folders, "npq"...

    Documenting Folder Color Meanings

    Have you looked at the Metadata > Color Label Set command? That's as close as you will get. My own preference is to use the panel end marks as described in this post. It's not very different from your sticky note method.

    PSB files do not sync?

    You might be able to fool LR by creating a blank PS file, saving it as a TIF, and "placing" the PSB in it.

    Searching synonyms in Lightroom Classic

    OK, LR could do better with synonyms. but bear in mind that LR's competitors don't even offer synonyms as a feature. You're forced to set up both keywords. You can search synonyms using smart collections. If I had lots of species, I'd do much the same as I do with Italian and other language...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    No, I was trying to split your "Videos in Cloudy sync across to Classic" away from "but are then treated as not sync’d." The second part is not really right. They are treated as synced, just not listed in Classic's ASP, and metadata is synced both ways just like any other synced file.

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    One can always add detail, but I'd just polish up a couple of rules: 8. Videos in Cloudy sync across to Classic and while they are not listed in All Synced Photos, they are included in synced collections and metadata syncs 12. ...in Classic and added to synced collections or directly to ASP are...

    Library module Capture Time to EXIF Date Options Selections

    Yes, I've used it a couple of times. I just tested with a jpg and it worked as I would expect, setting now as both the file created time and modified. What this setting does is create a new file, then overwrites the existing one. This option is there because some people want backup software to...

    Question about deleting photos (culling) in Cloudy and sync'd Classic libraries.

    Yes, and that is what I do. It was more important before Adobe finally added the Deleted Items trash, but it's still a good safeguard because it ensures that you do have a local copy and hopefully a backup, too.

    Question about deleting photos (culling) in Cloudy and sync'd Classic libraries.

    Sorry, I forgot about that. Assuming the videos are in synced collections, you could also pick those up with smart collections which look for the collection names of synced collections. But you're going to have to get into such gymnastics if you try to implement a Cloudy-first workflow which...

    Question about deleting photos (culling) in Cloudy and sync'd Classic libraries.

    1. Yes - deleted everywhere 2. Yes, but only if it has synced into Classic. Synced photos in Classic are the opposite of All Synced Photos. So select all in ASP, go to All Photographs and Edit > Select Inverse. That's only true for photos which have synced down into Classic.

    Limit Keyword list export

    Or just copy this test catalogue, delete the keywords you don't want, and export what's left. Gets round faffing around with text editors.

    Limit Keyword list export

    No, it's all or nothing. I'd suggest using Windows Notepad.
