    Help module does not work

    Tried that already.... did not work. Thinking there is some setting in LR Classic CC or Win10 networking. Thanks

    Help module does not work

    I'm running LR Classic CC 8.1 on Win 10 Home. I have not been able to use the help menu since installing LR Classic CC (subscription). I get an Error box with the message "Cannot display help." Is there a preferences setting I need to tweak to point it at the right place? The tutorials...

    Laptop Performance Problem

    Yes - I'm using the performance monitor to track memory usage. However when LR starts 'blinking', so does every other open window as each process gets swapped in and out, including the performance monitor. I increased the Windows swap file size from 2048 MB to 8192 MB but it doesn't seem to...

    Laptop Performance Problem

    Operating System: Windows 10 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Lightroom version: CC 2015.13 [ 1141928 ] I have a laptop with 16GB of memory - you can see the detail at the bottom. LR runs ok until it consumes about 2GB of memory... then it crawls, blinking at me while it...

    Can I install LR Classic CC and keep my current LR6 CC?

    Operating System: Windows 10 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Lightroom version: CC 2015.12 [ 1125239 ] I'd like to evaluate/test LR Classic CC on a small catalog before doing a full conversion. Is it possible to run both versions on my laptop? It doesn't have to be...

    How to shut off keyboard shortcuts / turn them back on?

    There are times when I don't want keyboard shortcuts to be active, usually when I'm captioning/keywording/titleing a large number of photos. I always seem to get into a mode where I've missed the input box (i.e. caption box) and typed in a bunch of characters that LR interprets as keyboard...

    Creating a collection by month, day but not year

    I want to create a collection by metadata date (month and date only, not year) that spans years. For example I want all photos taken on April 23 for the last 5 years. Why do you ask? I want to look at my bird photos in that way to assess migration patterns. Is there an easy way to do this...

    Incremental export of master catalog with smart previews?

    Thanks. Catalog A and Smart Previews A have a total of 193 GB, well within my field computer storage capacity. I don't update the master computer while I'm away so copying the catalogs back to my master computer upon return ought to work. I have maintained a separate catalog for current...

    Incremental export of master catalog with smart previews?

    I'm out in the field and away from my desktop for 2-3 months at a time about 2-3 times a year in places with no or slow Internet access - so my desktop with my master Lightroom catalog is unavailable to me about half the year. During my field time I want to be able to work with my master...

    Incremental export of master catalog with smart previews?

    I have a master catalog on my desktop containing over 150,000 images. I want to periodically export the catalog to my laptop while working in the field. I've already done one pass of catalog export with smart previews that took about a day to generate. Is there a way to incrementally...
