    Library module Lens is reported differently for JPG / RAW

    Just tried a 50 mm EF mount on an EF to EF-M mount adaptor. Came out right all round again. As did the EF-M kit zoom lens. Looks like Canon put more effort into the metadata but Sony put more effort into making the darn thing focus. I know which I would have preferred ;).

    Library module Lens is reported differently for JPG / RAW

    I've just tried for you with a Canon EOS M3 (APS-C) and I'm getting the real focal length all round: IMG_6405.CR2 [EXIF] Focal Length : 22.0 mm [EXIF] Lens Info : 22mm f/0 [EXIF] Lens Model : EF-M22mm f/2...

    More photos showing in mobile than elsewhere

    Oo I didn't know that about the iOS one. There is hope! Although it wouldn't really solve my problem unless they give me a way not to hoover up everything in the downloads folder and elsewhere. I mostly shoot raws on my phone, so I just leave it auto importing them, and try to remember to...

    More photos showing in mobile than elsewhere

    Flagging did the trick. Turns out there were 788 screenshots stuck in Lr mobile that I'd deleted either in Classic or Cloud (and then Classic). Roll on the day when Adobe give us an option to only auto add JPEGs from particular folders, not hoover up JPEGs and PNGs from the whole phone :)...

    More photos showing in mobile than elsewhere

    I didn't use the pick flag to do it because, yes, I'm already using it for something else. But you've reminded me that I had been pondering about changing how I use flags and stars, so now is as good a time as any to do it! I normally keep my shortlist of picks as flagged, then only give a star...

    More photos showing in mobile than elsewhere

    Lr on Android shows All Photos as 15,378. Web, desktop Cloud and Classic all show 14,590. All platforms show up as finished syncing. Before I go uninstalling and reinstalling Lr Android and risking losing the missing photos: do you think the missing 788 photos actually exist? Can you think of a...

    Library module What do you put in the IPTC State/Province field for the UK?

    I did a winky face at the end of the sentence! But not with the forum emojis - just with the keyboard. On my screen it's come up big and yellow and happy, I'm disappointed its yellow glow didn't make it across the Atlantic :oops: :D. My comment "just walk on the side" was a play on the word...

    Library module What do you put in the IPTC State/Province field for the UK?

    Sorry, that was just a silly joke on my part (as I assumed your comment about driving on the wrong side of the road was), which obviously didn't come across in writing!

    Lost my minimise ICON and Hello

    The number of times I've leaned on the keyboard and it's done something weird... :)

    Lost my minimise ICON and Hello

    Hi and welcome! Shift+F should cycle you through the full screen modes and get your top bar back. There are three options - normal, full screen with menu, and full screen without menu.

    Library module What do you put in the IPTC State/Province field for the UK?

    Yes, the county is a significant part of the location anywhere in the UK (and in the Republic of Ireland). I must admit, I'm using Lr cloud rather than Classic for my keywording, so no hierarchy for me! I know, I'm a heathen. But as a non-pro user, Lr cloud seems to be more and more where I'm...

    Library module What do you put in the IPTC State/Province field for the UK?

    That's two votes for disbanding the UK then (at least for Lightroom purposes ;)). It's definitely growing on me! Thanks for sharing, John.

    Library module What do you put in the IPTC State/Province field for the UK?

    You've just made everyone in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland very happy ;). Thanks for sharing - I hadn't pondered that option. It would be great to hear what others do, too!

    Library module What do you put in the IPTC State/Province field for the UK?

    After some Googling I gather that there is no standard for IPTC State/Province outside of the US. If you're in the UK, do you personally use it for county or for Wales, England etc? My photos with GPS coordinates get populated as Wales but I'm tempted to change them to counties to make them more...
