    Some faces not being found in People album

    No I didn't see any "is this the same person" dialogs. I think the most likely explanation is that the 11 photos were always there as an unnamed person, and I didn't recognise him from the face in the circle. In the keyword panel the face for him was not one of the most recognisable ones. Thanks...

    Some faces not being found in People album

    Thanks. Yes I see that there no unnamed people with less than 5 instances, but as soon as I named my uncle in the keyword panel, there were 11 photos of him. Does that fit with what you are saying or did I just not spot him among the unnamed faces.

    Some faces not being found in People album

    Brilliant! Thanks. I meant that my uncle wasn't being recognised at all in the People album. I could have missed him which would be easy to do, scanning hundreds of tiny faces of unnamed people, but I have repeated the search a few times over the last month. But opening one of the photos with...

    Some faces not being found in People album

    My 80K Lightroom Cloudy library has been set up for three years and People/Faces generally works pretty well. My most photographed family members have several thousand pics recognised in the People album and hundreds of other people appear down to single figures. I recently wanted to find more...

    Single Master Catalogue vs Separate Catalogues for Classic & Cloud?

    I would do the last option. Syncing beteeen LrC and Lr is not recommended by Adobe, and is for experts IMHO.

    Lr and Cloud Storage

    As recommended by Adobe, at least not both syncing. I have used both syncing, but for my use, the benefits outweighed the risks and complexities. I know it works for some people.

    Migrating from Lightroom to Lightroom Classic: Any advantage to Lightroom?

    I use Lightroom, rather than Lightroom Classic, for one overriding reason. My wife can have her devices signed into the same Adobe ID and all the photos both of us take are always available to both of us including culls and edits. In practice I do all the editing, culling and organising but it...

    How temporarily stop Lightroom syncing?

    Thanks very much Paul. Do I win the prize for the easiest question of the week?!

    How temporarily stop Lightroom syncing?

    I am on holiday in a remote cottage with negligible internet. How do I stop Lightroom trying to upload photos for the week, and hogging what little bandwidth there is. There doesn’t seem to be an obvious setting, unless I have to sign out. Thanks

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    Thanks very much Johan. About using the Lightroom camera on the iPhones instead of the Apple one. If this was just me I would probably do this, and aim to use the Apple cam for the junk, (screenshots, note taking etc) and the Lightroom cam for photos that might become keepers. But my wife is...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    This is all going very well, but I have a question about working practice using them together. I understand that if I delete a sync'd image in Cloudy will simply unsync it in Classic not delete it. So my standard practice, as you suggested, is to flag as rejected in Cloudy and then delete all...

    Imported images seem to get "stuck" in local storage

    Thanks for this. So provided we are sure the originals have been uploaded it is safe to manually delete the originals (on Mac) out of the Lightroom Library>Package Contents>long alphanumeric name>Originals?

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    So you were able to use the local library from an earlier backup with no issues? It is a while since I got the cloned library message and can't recall the details, except the linked solution was to delete it and redownload. (I realise your point is that it didn't help because it was overwritten...

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    It rejects it, and tells you to delete it and download a new copy from the Cloud. Recovery from a disk failure or setting up a new computer is extremely easy with Cloudy. No migrating of files, just sign in.

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    Thanks. As I read Victoria's What's New, it is on a picture by picture basis and you would have to make multiple snapshots just before making the editing errors? Maybe that is a misinterpretation. I am not familiar with snapshots in Classic which she says are similar.
