    Smart Previews Not Building

    Thanks for the link Paul. I haven't experienced any problems in Develop. I went back and refreshed my memory about the different kinds of previews available, and came to the conclusion I don't need Smart Previews anymore. I think I checked that box on import several years ago because our...

    Smart Previews Not Building

    Since the most recent Lightroom update I'm getting messages that Lightroom couldn't build Smart Previews, something I normally do when I import new photos. Based on a response I saw in another forum thread, I tried building previews by going to Library ->Previews->Build Smart Previews. That...

    Lightroom catalog-v10.Ircat

    I’m using Dropbox to sync my Lightroom Classic catalog on two computers. Since the update (I installed it on both computers) I’m getting lots of metadata errors whenever I switch computers. The Catalog should be exactly the same because I let it sync with Dropbox on one computer after I close...

    DropBox for LR Classic Library

    An additional clue that perhaps has something to do with what is going on; I'm getting lots of errors related to metadata that doesn't agree (screenshot below)l

    DropBox for LR Classic Library

    I've been syncing Lightroom Classic on two computers using Dropbox, and it's been working great until recently. One minor wrinkle appeared not long ago but before the most recent Lightroom update. I'm religious about allowing Dropbox to sync first on the computer I used last then on the other...

    DropBox for LR Classic Library

    Thank you Victoria! I think I have the problem resolved - I had two different user names assigned to my two Macs, and when I tried to point to a folder in the Dropbox location each computer kept changing the file name to reflect its own user name. I had to go back to one Mac and change the...

    DropBox for LR Classic Library

    I'm using the latest version of Catalina. I see where I can specify storing presets with the catalog (in Dropbox), but there were some warnings about that in your book, and I don't add that many new presets so I think I can manage updating those on both computers as needed. I've scoured your...

    DropBox for LR Classic Library

    I recently set this up on two computers with Lightroom Classic and it seems to be working smoothly - but I also use LR on an iPad. I’m wondering how to manage the mobile files that are created on the iPad and synced via the Creative Cloud? They were originally placed on my desktop computer...

    Smart Previews Only in Lightroom CC

    Thanks @Victoria Bampton and @Jim Wilde - I do sometimes want to pull something into Photoshop when I’m traveling, but am coming to terms with the fact that I’m fighting a losing battle. The workflow becomes so cumbersome to try to maintain full res files in the cloud with LR Classic as my...

    Smart Previews Only in Lightroom CC

    I'm using Lightroom on two computers, Lightroom Classic on one (my primary computer) and Lightroom CC on a smaller computer (which I use for travel). Several of my photos in Lightroom CC indicate that there is only a smart preview available in the cloud. I thought what I needed to do to fix...

    Lightroom Cloud is Stuck Syncing a File on MacBook

    Intriguing! But to make sure I have a full res image in the cloud I would have to add it directly, correct? Not just by syncing Classic with LR Mobile? If I create enough sync issues for myself maybe I would get better at finding/resolving them for myself...

    Lightroom Cloud is Stuck Syncing a File on MacBook

    @Victoria Bampton I contacted Adobe and they helped me resolve the problem. The issue was not in my Synced photographs; it was in the deleted files still residing in the cloud. I had over 10,000 of them in both places but the counts in the folders differed by 87. We deleted all the photos in...

    Lightroom Cloud is Stuck Syncing a File on MacBook

    Thanks, Victoria. There are no files in a "syncing" state; I come up with a black hole. The number of photos in LR Cloudy All Photos also matches what's on the web and what's in LR Classic on my main computer, so I'm not missing anything. Is there some file I can delete on my MacBook that...
