    I looked at several similar previoius questions, but I am still a little confused. I want to find an easy way of determining which of my "exported" pictures are NOT yet in a collection. The exported pictures are in different folders but I have previously added "export" as the copy name and...

    Lightroom 5.7 won't rename files
