• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

    Where are My "Develop" Settings?

    Where are My "Develop" Settings?

    Uninstalling the program is one thing, but the catalogues remain on your hard drive. Imagine you uninstalled Excel or Word. The programs would be gone, but the xls and doc files would still be there. XMP metadata is either in a separate file (if the original is a raw file) or is inside the...

    Where are My "Develop" Settings?

    They are always in the catalogue, a database file with the file extension *.lrcat. Most of the information can be copied to xmp files, if you choose to save metadata back to the files. So that's an option, useful if you are going between systems or reimporting. But the key data is in the...

    RAW photos downloaded into Lightroom put a duplicate RAW copy into Photoshop.

    What duplication? You need to be more specific before we can help. As a guess, in Lightroom's Import dialog, are you choosing Copy when you want to Add?

    $50 K medium format camera

    Another way I would describe my reaction is that the Z7 didn't seem like the equivalent of the D8** bodies. It's heavier than I expected and is quite boxy, almost crude, and its ergonomics seemed more like Nikon's D3** low end polycarbonate bodies than a D8**. So it had relatively few buttons...

    Plug-ins or tools for complicated publish folders

    I don't know of anything intended for that kind of task.

    $50 K medium format camera

    I'm not really comparing Fuji v Nikon though. I didn't feel my Nikon experience helped much with the Z6 and Z7.

    History - will it come to cc?

    I doubt it. I don't believe that Adobe has any intention of replicating Lightroom Classic functionality and is only implementing the lowest common denominator of features in Lightroom Cloud. Lightroom's History is quite an unusual feature in Adobe apps - even where other apps have a feature...

    $50 K medium format camera

    I still use my D800 occasionally and don't have too much trouble switching back from Fuji, but this morning I had a bit of time handling a Z6 and Z7 and didn't find them so familiar. It was almost like using another brand, and I'd recommend getting hands on before making a decision.

    Lightroom CC Folders issue

    What would you expect to see? What I mean is are some of the 17k on other drives, like D: or J: or whatever, so you'd expect to see D: and K: as well as the C drive. Are you able to select some photos that generate the error in post #3 and do a File > Export as Catalog? That's only a test. What...

    Lightroom CC Folders issue

    What happens after restarting LR? Do the missing folders display? Go slowly.

    $50 K medium format camera

    Adobe are generally a bit slow supporting these high end cameras, Phil, but at some point they will do, just like they support any other camera. The slowness is partly demand-driven, with few bodies sold and typical users commonly using CaptureOne, which again is partly because of tethering...

    RAW files from Lr CC for iOS to Cloud

    I believe so, and my guess is that they're designing for a time when no one worries about sync going via the cloud because it's quick enough to make that workflow viable for everyone.
