    "Masking comes to Lightroom with Max Releases!"

    I saw "Masking comes to Lightroom with Max Releases!" in my email inbox, and, sigh, my very first thought was:

    Merge to Panorama: Is the method used for merge stored anywhere?

    The field XMP:Transformation contains Spherical, Cylindrical, or Perspective. You can't view that field in LR without using a plugin: Metadata Viewer to view all the fields of an individual photo, or Any Filter to filter, search, sort, or export by all the fields. E.g.

    Library module LR Substitutes Creation Date for Capture Date Without Permission.

    Oh, sorry, I misread your post on my phone, thinking you'd posted some attachments. I'll wait until you have to time to follow through. Avoiding saving metadata (steps 1 and 2) will avoid one particular problem (which may or may not be what you're observing).

    Library module LR Substitutes Creation Date for Capture Date Without Permission.

    I'll dig into this either late tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Library module LR Substitutes Creation Date for Capture Date Without Permission.

    LR has serious bugs and design flaws handling photos that are missing industry-standard metadata date fields, and its behavior with respect to this has changed over the years (for the worse). Since there are many date fields, assigned different names by various apps, let's get the precise...

    Every year I make a bet

    Right. My point was that when LR was perpetually licensed through LR 6 (CC 2015), major versions came out sporadically, but when it switched to subscription licensing only, Adobe has changed the major version number like clockwork every fall (Adobe Max). So the marketing issue of varying...

    Every year I make a bet

    LR CC 2015 was perpetually licensed, and for whatever reasons Adobe found it hard to get a significantly new "major" version released once a year. But when they moved to subscription licensing with LR 7, they did a pretty good job of releasing every 8 weeks, and they've been automatically...

    Develop module Programming Lightroom

    1. Select all the photos and do Photo > Stacking > Auto-Stack By Capture Time. That will put each group of three brackets into their own stack. 2. Do Photo > Stacking > Collapse All Stacks to ensure all the stacks are collapsed. 3. Select all the collapsed stacks and do Photo > Photo Merge >...

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    Glad you got that resolved. It's too bad that Adobe has never fixed the design flaw that corrupts the preferences file.

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    A couple of years ago there were a few reports of similar symptoms with Nikon Z lenses: https://feedback-readonly.photoshop.com/conversations/lightroom-classic/lightoom-builtin-lens-profile-applied-doesnt-appear-for-nikon-z-lenses/5f5f46074b561a3d426f4827#reply_20154914...

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    Hmm, that's strange -- it says "Profile: None". Can you please post a screen shot showing the entire Lens Correction panel -- the top half of it is cut off.

    How could one remove / reset all upright guides with a single click or so?

    You could also hold down Alt on Windows or Opt on Mac -- "Upright" magically transforms to "Reset Upright". And in other Develop panels, various reset buttons will appear.

    Lightroom Catalog cannot open - Connect PC external NTFS hard drive to new MAC

    Hmmm, the first 10 results of that google search are all about enabling NTFS write support for Mac via paid, free, or built-in drivers.

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    Raws taken by the RX100 VII have lens profiles embedded in them by the camera, and LR applies the profile automatically (as shown in the screenshot above): https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/lens-profile-support.html#Cameraswithbuiltinlensprofilesupport If you're not seeing "Built-in...

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    When you open the Lens Correction panel, you'll see at the bottom "Built-in Lens Profile applied". Click the "i" and you'll get more information: For many newer cameras, LR lets you disable the built-in lens profile (so you can select another lens profile), but it appears you can't do that...
