    File could not be written......

    Found it! Go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Files and Folders -> find Lightroom and grant permission to write to removable volumes. Thanks for setting me on the right path, Jim! :)

    File could not be written......

    Thank you, Jim! It looks like that's the issue. I right+clicked the folder on the drive I was trying to export to and told it to apply read-write permissions to the folder and sub-folders, and it still won't write them. But I was at least able to export them to my desktop and send them to...

    File could not be written......

    I am totally perplexed. I'm trying to export files, but every time I do, LR says my files could not be written. I've re-synchronized my media folder (backing up original xmp's of course), I've rebuilt the cataloge. Nothing. Even more frustrating, my Google searched have turned up nothing...

    Printing from LR questions

    Thank you for your help! Now there's more options for Canon paper to chose from. I see other options as well, like for Hakagi paper, but they're all greyed out. I'm guessing here I need to download and install profiles.

    Printing from LR questions

    Thanks for your response. First thing I did was download and install the drivers from the Canon website, following the automatic prompts from the installer app. Not sure if I did anything wrong, but I've been a Mac user since 2000 and have done this hundreds if not thousands of times.....

    Printing from LR questions

    Hey all, I've been using LR for years and consider myself an expert user. However, I am new to printing. I just bought a Canon Pixma Pro 10 and am raring to go to town with it, unfortunately I haven't the foggiest idea of how to proceed. I downloaded and installed the drivers from Canon, set...

    LR face recognition - one person

    NM - I found it. They're in the keyword list. I thought the faces tags were stashed in a different location....

    LR face recognition - one person

    So on to the next question: Can I edit out names associated with people from previous jobs so they stop being suggested when I run face recognition in LR?

    LR face recognition - one person

    Sorry, I didn't think it through. I know it has to look at all the faces in order to recognize them. But I don't want to have to scan through the bajillion pictures of other people who are not even false-positives that LR offers up and tell it to ignore them. I just want it to offer me only...

    LR face recognition - one person

    Yea, I've been slogging through it, slowly training LR. Of course, with over a quarter million images to read, it's ssssssslllllooooooooowwwww...... :whistling:

    LR face recognition - one person

    Hey there, I was wondering if there's a way to ask LR to search for only one specific person in my catalogue of tens of thousands. I've seeded it by identifying the person a few times, but the problem is I have over 300,000 photographs of mostly events (read: many faces in each photograph), so...

    Problem when importing raw images

    So I just shot 400 frames using my D3s on the same cards and imported them to my new HD using the same card reader with nary a problem. Prognosis: bad HD. Thanks to everybody who spent the time to weigh in on my issue, I sincerely appreciate it. :)

    Problem when importing raw images

    Yes, all my cameras are set to shoot copies of each image I take to each onboard card. After a job, I pop one card and pocket it. That way if something happens to my gear (theft, fire, tornado, aliens, zombies, etc.), I'm covered. I'd much rather have to deal with equipment insurance to replace...

    Problem when importing raw images

    Pretty much. But one thing doesn't sit well with me. The only camera files that exhibited this issue (and I use 4 camera bodies) were out of my D3s. But I used the SD cards out of my others and only CF with my D3s. But, as mentioned, I've since used the D3s with a trio of CF cards (including the...
