  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    To clarify, when within Lr, photos were no longer there, as shown in message 10 above, I thought perhaps it was because a proper Smart Previews folder was not attached to the Catalogue (as most of my photos are on my external drive).

    I do make a lot of brush adjustments to add depth and definition to my photos. As for spot removal, guilty as charged for that as well. Unfortunately, somehow, on a shoot at night, a group of us were climbing a trail and dust got in my camera and on the lens and I have not been able to remove...

    Something has occurred to me -- one of the reasons the backup is not working is because of the size of the entire Lightroom folder. I don't have enough memory left. I've mentioned I shoot RAW which makes my photos large. Johan and Ferguson, are your photos in jpeg format or do you also shoot...

    I just checked and I have just 42,903 photos. I don't understand why my catalogue is so huge. I have a Smart Preview folder that reads that large as well. This makes no sense to me.

    My catalogue is huge - 46+ GB. I shoot RAW, so my library is huge. I do, however, cull my photos and dump those I do not want to keep. I create Smart Previews. The photos I do post-edit and keep, I will transfer to my external drive so that at any given time, generally only my most recent...
