    I don’t think the Catalog is connected to the photograph files, how to connect?

    Thank you and that has worked perfectly. Because I have photographs in folders by year with four years on the internal drive and older years on the Sandisk external drive, I had to connect the years individually, but that was a very minor inconvenience, compared with getting my processing...

    I don’t think the Catalog is connected to the photograph files, how to connect?

    Thank you and I think so too, though I don’t see a need to delete and start again with the actual photograph files transfer now I have them in the locations I want, do you? I’ll remove the Catalog and delete LR then reinstall LR and re-transfer the Catalog and try link the folders the...

    I don’t think the Catalog is connected to the photograph files, how to connect?

    I’ve had all sorts of difficulties changing over from Windows to a Mac and transferring LR Classic and the photograph files. Part of the problem was my lack of understanding of the Mac file structure (and the Mac in general) and part that I used a Samsung T5 external drive to transfer the...

    I'm new to Apple and having problems transferring LR CC Classic photographs and catalog from a Windows PC to a Mac

    Cletus - thank you! I think that has worked, had to press Synchronize afterwards but there are definitely photographs to view. I Your reply also covers what to do when I transfer my more recent years to the Mac Hard Drive. Can I ask one more question - when I do this is the usual place to put...

    I'm new to Apple and having problems transferring LR CC Classic photographs and catalog from a Windows PC to a Mac

    Clee01| Thank you. I'm passed the stage of using Windows Migration now and have LR Classic installed and the Catalog on the Mac hard drive. I can see all my file hierarchy but no photograph previews and nothing there when I click on a file. I'm pretty sure it's down to the D drive conflict and...

    I'm new to Apple and having problems transferring LR CC Classic photographs and catalog from a Windows PC to a Mac

    Please can someone help! I've got the photograph files copied from the Windows PC to a Samsung T5 portable drive and have also copied the Catalog onto the T5. I've eventually (after 90 minutes and the help of a YouTube video) got the Samsung T5 to open on the Mac (security settings needed...

    Catalog question

    Hi Gnits, thank you and I was replying to Victoria as you made your post. 2TB would be better but 1Tb would suffice for the next couple of years. I just found this SanDisk Professional G-Drive which is beyond what I have been thinking of paying, but not by a considerable margin. Would transfer...

    Catalog question

    Hi Victoria, Thank you and that simplifies things a lot, one catalog it is. As to how blazing fast, I don’t know. I don’t have massive volumes but the recent individual raw files are large and I also edit in Photoshop. I suppose the answer is as fast as I can get without breaking the bank and...

    Catalog question

    I’m moving from Windows to a Mac computer. On the Windows PC the Catalog is on the C Drive and all the photograph files are on the D Drive. It’s a single catalog. The Photograph files are in Year main folders and date of shoot sub-folders. When moving to the Mac I will have one internal drive...

    How to view original raw file in an album after editing in Photoshop?

    Johan, Thank you. I noticed yesterday evening that both the raw and Tif versions showed in the same album on my iPad Lr. I didn't need that version of the Tif (it was a practice Ps edit) so deleted it on the Ipad and this morning the original raw file is back in the album on the desktop Lr...

    How to view original raw file in an album after editing in Photoshop?

    Hi Johan, Thank you. When I click Info it says the file name is _DSF2408-Edit.tif Synced and Backed Up: Local - Tif, Cloud-Tif. In the other album it's _DSF2408.RAF After a Windows search I've located the local version in C:\Users\David\Appdata\Local\ Adobe\Lightroon CC\Data\Temporary...

    How to view original raw file in an album after editing in Photoshop?

    I've just been trying editing a Photo in Photoshop and then saved it as a Tiff. When back in LR the original raw file has disappeared. I can see it in a different album that I had it in, but not the album I chose to edit iin Photoshop from. At a guess this is because it is the same file name...

    Tone Curve and Sliders

    Johan - thank you for your reply. Before posting I'd been searching for clues without success but have just looked in Victoria's Edit like a Pro and found nine pages of explanation and examples on using curves. I should have thought to look here first. The book also gives examples of...

    Tone Curve and Sliders

    Is there a way to ‘link’ the Tone Curve and the Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Whites and Blacks sliders please? So that when a slider is moved I can see the effect on the Tone Curve and vice versa? Or am I misunderstanding how the sliders and curve are related? I’ve wondered about this for...
