    Can keyword associations be copied from one catalog to another?

    Thanks Cletus, What you suggest will work well if your primary objective is parsing your catalog to several smaller ones. What I've done however is to REMAKE (rescan old 35mm slides) several hundred images. I did this because I purchased a better slide scanner that produces better images. So...

    Can keyword associations be copied from one catalog to another?

    I've been manipulating my Lr catalogs for some time now. Mostly because my "master" catalog became bloated with more than 45K photos. My latest manipulation was to parse out about 3000 images of scanned 35mm slides into a separate catalog . The primary reason for this latest activity is that...

    Best way to resolve highlight clipping

    Yes - a bit. I think I'll simply rescan the most important ones. Thanks for your input.

    Best way to resolve highlight clipping

    I've used an inexpensive slide scanner to scan a number of 35mm slides and return JPGs. Most of the slides came out well but several have some serious highlight clipping. I've tried using conventional exposure/cloning/healing/adjustment brush with unacceptable results (the clipped images look...

    Yep. That did it. Thanks for your quick reply and expertise!

    6.0 won't update

    I recently needed to reinstall Windows 10 on a repaired laptop. On reinstalling apps I tried to update 6.0 that I installed from a purchased DVD. Trying to update to at least 6.1 to enable the Lr dehaze plugin I get the message that it won't install in 6.0. How do I update?

    Any news on Lr Perpetual crashing on facial recognition?

    Good points to all of you on the "perpetual" rant. I started this thread hoping that there was some way to retrieve my extensive facial recognition database. I don't know why this is important to me given that I don't recall actually using the utility to search my Lr catalogs. I usually use...

    Any news on Lr Perpetual crashing on facial recognition?

    I've spent some time searching and reviewing posts regarding this (e.g., Here and here) Unfortunately, and disappointingly, the perpetual license isn't really perpetual.... I may or may not pay the monthly fee that Adobe is apparently wanting to extort from us, but I want first to see if...

    Question regarding combining/consolidating catalog

    Yes. The collection is duplicates with the long prefix stripped from the filename. I did this easily with a free program. Most of the files in my 14K+ library are named by date and I'm not sure how many of the files got the long prefix added, but it makes sorting and searching difficult. I...

    Question regarding combining/consolidating catalog

    I have a bloated catalog that I'm trying to consolidate. I have a number of files that I have renamed to remove the long prefix (from e.g., 20000223-75-10-06 1200.JPG to 75-10-06 1200.jpg). This will help me to search and to reorder my library. I currently have 940 of these renamed files in...

    No - you're not late for me at least. I'm on to other stuff but not with the problem listed here. Give me a little more time and I'll repost )-:

    lightroom has stopped working message

    Thanks for the response Johan. Give me a day or so to confirm - but Lr now appears to be working properly. I'll report back after confirming.

    lightroom has stopped working message

    Got this message earlier today and frantically trying to recover. I restored my computer to an earlier state but no joy. The message appeared after trying to import 76 files from wife's iPhone. I'm happy to provide whatever screenshots or info to help you to help me. Thanks

    Metadata conflict query

    A couple of things to add here. First, to bulk-fix your photos. Once you've found and selected all your photos with conflicts you can click on one and choose overwrite and Lr will cascade your choice across all selected photos. Next, your confidence that you're not messing up can be confirmed...

    Can I sort by "Photo has Develop adjustments"?

    Nope. Not really bad. I wasn't aware of the "smart collection" option or maybe have forgotten it. I used it and came up with 699 photos that have been edited. This contrasts with 1010 photos that I colored red as identified "adjusted prior to 12-27-2020". Go figure. I'll now try to...
