    Maps blank

    Some random thoughts: Did MAP ever work? Have you made any changes to your network setup? I've often wondered what the Google IP addresses are. It could be useful to PING them for debugging. Have you tried changing the Map Style to Road Map to see if that causes a forced call to Google for a...

    Codec for new Nikon .nef format not working in Lightroom 6

    I would check on this. I believe that the Media Viewer is not opening/converting the NEF file but simply displaying one of the embedded preview JPG images. In other words, the codec is not a converter from RAW to something like JPG/DNG like LrC has. For NEF files at present, here is a list of...

    PC specifications for LR Classic

    A lot of good information shared here. As a fellow Dell XPS 8700 user, and also thinking off upgrading, here are some of my thoughts: I have always wanted to go to MAC but after I could no longer upgrade the MAC OS on my older Macbook decided to stay with a Windows desktop with...

    Update Metadata Functional Difference

    Thanks @johnrellis. I did some Googling and I think it was my misperception. I was thinking the metadata out of sync message related to the metadata referenced under the Metadata tab only and not all metadata.

    Update Metadata Functional Difference

    I saw that the metadata was out of a sync on a TIFF file that I had performed an EDIT-IN to Topaz Denoise. When I selected import from photo, it reset all of the changes I'd made since the return from Topaz. In the past, I thought it only updated metadata like EXIF or IPTC. Is this a change or...

    Healing Control Opacity Issue

    Thanks for the explanation @Califdan . I preferred when we didn't have to care about the order of the changes.

    Healing Control Opacity Issue

    It would be nice if they would consider putting up a caution trial against controls that are impacted by masking after the fact.

    Healing Control Opacity Issue

    Doh! Thanks Victoria. That's what it was. Time to spend time with the updated book. I'd just read about that in another thread where I raised the question that order of changes is now important whereas before it wasn't. Here's the difference when I remove 'sky masking'

    Healing Control Opacity Issue

    I've never had this issue before and don't know if it's a change in the Healing control or just the combination of my selection and the replacement. In the following you can see what I selected, with 100% OPACITY, and the result where you can still discern that it's a car being 'cloned' out...

    Where is the done button?

    @Paul McFarlane 's is the simplest solution but be aware that the DONE button does still for some circumstances plus there are now CLOSE buttons as well. See this thread for the discussion https://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/threads/done-vs-close-confusion.46519/#post-1307672

    Healing Tools

    This seems to be a departure from previous guidance that it didn't matter the order edits were made since, in the end, LrC determines how to apply them. In other words, we need to follow those rules now to get the best results; correct?

    Healing Tools

    I've experience the same with a limited amount of editting.

    Done vs Close Confusion

    Thanks. The EDIT is easier but I haven't figured out what it was used for. Just upgraded to 12.0.1 yesterday. Ah, I normally use the target in HSL and had never noticed it didn't always appear. Ok, so in summary, at present, there are 3 ways to close a develop control depending on the...

    Done vs Close Confusion

    @Califdan, DONE has not been completely removed. It is still there for some controls (at least HSL). The problem seems to be that if the control panel is long, you need to scroll down to find the close in the bottom right. Not as easy/initiative as DONE on the editing view. Here's a document...

    Done vs Close Confusion

    I can't remember seeing this asked so apologize if missed it or in the new FAQ from Victoria. Part of looking for an answer is crafting a succinct Google Query. I've seen the discussion of the lost of the DONE button in many cases. I did see it is still there for some controls. What I wasn't...
