    File Import Order Incorrect

    Ken, I can't say, as I only imported three times, so not sure what would happen if I had changed it back again. I did not try this in a brand new catalog either. Sorry for not being much more help. Kevin

    File Import Order Incorrect

    Ken, It should also be noted that there are three separate import "batches" that can be identified by the file names of the files that I've uploaded. Does this clarify what you were asking? Thanks, Kevin

    File Import Order Incorrect

    The file names showing the CR2 are prior to import what LR sees on the card. The renamed DNG files are after import as my import options rename them. You should be able to see that option checked on the right side.

    File Import Order Incorrect

    I will have to respectively disagree with your replies. I ran a simple test this morning with 10 pictures, numbered 1 - 10 in each image. Please notice the file names and the numbers for each image. The first import was done with the sort order set to OFF, the second import the sort order was...

    File Import Order Incorrect

    After turning sort order off, they have imported correctly. At this point, my question is why is this the case?

    File Import Order Incorrect

    I'm in the process of importing images that I just shot today and they are not importing in the order in which they were shot. In fact they are not even importing based on any kind of logical order, seems random. It's not capture time, file name, just random. In the past I've always imported...

    Export Options Don't Include PSB

    Johan, Can you expand on that please? Not sure I understand, as I can work on a TIF file with Layers and export that. But when it is originally exported it contains no layers. Or are you saying that layers are somehow built into the PSB format? Thanks, Kevin

    Export Options Don't Include PSB

    I guess we will be happy with the fact then that it can at least import and support that Adobe file type. Thank you Victoria for the reply.

    Export Options Don't Include PSB

    Any ideas why we can't export to a PSB file within Lightroom? The only options available are JPEG, PSD, TIFF, PNG, DNG and original. I'm currently running into some file size limitations with an image that I'm working on as a TIF. I could save the TIF as a PSB, just wondering why this format...

    Caption / Description Metadata Fields

    Done, and yes the steps that have been outlined in the case are accurate. thank you for doing that John!! I'm glad that someone else was able to verify and submit. Guess we need to get some more people to do the ME TOO to have it looked at. Thanks, Kevin

    Caption / Description Metadata Fields

    Gnits, thank you for the additional insight, seems as though metadata has been a struggle in some fashion or other for a long time. My problem just cropped up because I've finally taken the plunge to manage all of my genealogy exhibits within Lightroom. Down side is most are scans of documents...

    Caption / Description Metadata Fields

    Once the images are exported as JPGs, they are copied out and used by a third party program to create my genealogy site. This application reads data directly from the EXIF / IPTC data. Then I remove / delete the JPG files from Lightroom as I only need the master TIF files since the JPGs reside...

    Caption / Description Metadata Fields

    Victoria, I removed the data from the "Caption" field within Lightroom and did the (Ctrl-S) and saw the dialog at the top of Lightroom saving the file. This is what Lightroom shows: And this is what Photoshop shows, data still present: So next I thought, OK, why not "Read" the metadata...

    Caption / Description Metadata Fields

    Paul, in this case the files are of an over-sized document that was scanned as multiple TIF files and then combined with Photoshop into a single file. Then imported into Lightroom and metadata added after import into Lightroom. After the metadata is added, I would export them as JPGs and make...

    Caption / Description Metadata Fields

    Victoria, I'm sorry, I don't follow. I'm trying to remove the data from the "Caption" field so that there is nothing there, blank or empty field. It shows empty or blank in Lightroom, but if you open the file and look at the file info within Photoshop, the data is still there. Thanks, Kevin
