  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    Lightroom Cloudy On Two Machines

    What is your Smart Preview setting in Local Storage prefs? I am in a similar situation to you and have Smart Previews unchecked in prefs. The Lightroom Library on my laptop is currently 28GB. With Smart Previews checked it says it would need 103GB. My Library has 78,000 photos/581GB originals...

    Local storage location for LR Cloud

    I am interested in doing this and tried about eighteen months ago without success. Before I try again with the benefit of this thread, can I make sure I am understanding the end result correctly? You have the LR Originals on an external drive. You can plug the external drive into either of two...

    Photography Plan question

    Victoria has just clarified it in the Blog comments: A 20GB Photography Plan taken out before 31st Jan 2020 will include Photoshop for iPad, but not after that date. A 1TB Photography Plan taken out at any time will include Photoshop for iPad.

    Photography Plan question

    Thanks Hal. Reason for possible delay is that it seems initially a very limited product, so I might wait. But if it is included "free" before Jan 31st 2020 I might go for it anyway. I am on a chat with an Adobe rep who doesn't know anything about 31st Jan 2020. I wonder what the Blog is...

    Photography Plan question

    Not sure where to post this. I am currently on the Lightroom 1TB plan for £9.97pm I want to move to the Photography Plan 1TB which will add Photoshop and Lightroom with 1TB for £19.97. I understand that anyone on this plan is automatically entitled to the new Photoshop for iPad for no extra...

    Catalina and TM issues

    I can't see that Victoria said TM backup drives have to be APFS? There is absolutely no doubt that they have to be HFS+. Read the Apple link I posted or try using an APFS drive as TM backup drive. I think there are some misunderstandings, maybe by me, in this thread!

    Catalina and TM issues

    I may be misunderstanding what you seem to be saying, but the Time Machine disk has to be formatted HFS+ even with Catalina. Types of disks you can use with Time Machine on Mac

    Importing from multiple iOS devices

    1. Yes we also have two iPhones which connect to the same Lr account without problem. 2. That is a puzzle then! I am out of suggestions. A slight correction/addition to what I wrote earlier...but not relevant to your problem. I realised of course that the "Allow Lightroom to use camera"...

    Importing from multiple iOS devices

    iPad photos taken on the Apple camera are being imported automatically into Lightroom on my wife‘s iPad. What are your iPad settings in Settings > Lightroom? On our phones there is an option to “allow Lightroom to access Camera”. The iPad strangely doesn’t have an option to allow the the...

    Show photos not in albums?

    Thanks Carlos and Victoria. Didn't spot the ":"....works perfectly.

    Show photos not in albums?

    Where should I type "album" ? In the search box? If I do that I don't see any "not in any album" in the drop down. Might that be because I am pretty sure mine are all in albums, or am I doing something wrong? Thanks

    Some originals being stored locally but setting is not to store originals locally

    Thanks very much Jim, that makes sense. What doesn't makes sense (but doesn't matter greatly) is why these particular photos should be the ones in this situation.

    Some originals being stored locally but setting is not to store originals locally

    The Local Storage preference settings on my iMac is as attached. Local storage of Originals is unchecked. Note that the location for local storage is shown as an external drive called "Photos" which is unsurprisingly greyed out. But if I look at "Photos", there is a folder called "Lightroom...

    Switching to Lightroom from Adobe Store to Apple Store....worth doing?

    UPDATE. I have now switched plans from 1TB Photography to 1TB Cloudy. Unlike when I last changed plan, there is now a switch plan option, it wasn't a cancel and re-purchase. This was extremely painless, quick and easy, even though it was a downgrade. And I will get a small refund. This may...
