• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

    Support for Fujifilm X-T3 RAF files in LR Classic

    I concur with Cletus. I've processes X-T3 files very happily with the current version of Classic. Lovely camera!

    Error importing MP4 video files into LR 8.3

    Ok. I use an 80D and no issue. I also have a G1X MkII, just tried it and it's fine; any special settings you use? I did mine from an SD Reader straight into Classic. Might be worth copying the file onto the hard disk and try an Import.

    Error importing MP4 video files into LR 8.3

    Can you tell us the equipment the mp4 videos are being created on? While my knowledge base on video is limited (they work for mine from Canon, that's my experience) there are others on the Forum that use video a lot more and this will likely help!

    Error importing MP4 video files into LR 8.3

    Here's the current page for supported video types and a note on Dolby (updated with the 8.3 release this month): https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/video-support-lightroom.html

    Can Lightroom fix this?

    Hi Marc Noise will be a result of the scan and resolution, not the original ISO. What resolution are the images? I assume you are referring to local adjustment for noise for the sky; try a little negative clarity also on this.

    Lightroom Desktop (cloud based) - too slow to edit photos efficiently

    Hi Chris Processing is local, not on the cloud. Changes are synced back to the cloud, so I'd suggest check your PC (is the disk full? Need defragmenting? All those type of checks)

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    Jim, you are of course totally correct. The context seemed to be using different catalogs, which I related to the Classic system, whereas of course the could doesn't use the same concept.

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    Just to add, once set (the folder for the mobile downloads) and once the photos from mobile have arrived in Classic, if you don't want to be able to view them on mobile devices (going back to Phil's comments) then you can delete them from All Synced Photographs - Classic won't delete the local...

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    If you mean Desktop as in Classic (so sync'd through a Collection locally) then yes. If by Desktop you mean Lightroom CC (as was) - cloud - then no, because you won't be able to access the photos in the Cloud App (even locally) as it relies on the cloud as the storage.

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    Correct. Some people like to tick this on their main computer just so they have an additional (local) backup, especially a good idea prior to the current release when there was no way to undelete.

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    Local cache for the images held in the cloud, so LR doesn't rely on downloading every time to view or edit using the Desktop App. Mobile also has cache. You can additionally store photos locally, just check: Store a copy of all originals at the specified location checkbox in Preferences >...

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    All correct except on Lightroom (was CC, now just Lightroom or the Cloud version as we're discussing here) there is no catalog, it's all photos that have been uploaded to the cloud

    Keep set Ratio locked

    Mike That's expected behavior - you say he lock icon was locked, therefore the Aspect will remain on the aspect of the image just selected (so Original) - what are you expecting it to do? Perhaps we're not understanding the question?
