    Starting over...

    I need a reset. My LR is a mess and I just want to start over. How can I locate and save the edits to the files that are modified by me, then just start a fresh, clean catalog, to include photos I have edited, but not any others (yet). Also, the sync between LR Mobile iPhone and MacBook...

    Mobile Sync after restoring catalog from backup

    Very well - I will continue to manage ALL my images in LR, once I get my mess cleaned up. Until then, I am treading lightly so as to not make it any worse. Smart previews seem like the right thing to do, despite the size of the file they create. If I were traveling or away from my main external...

    I will definitely read your article. Thanks for continuing to follow up with me. You are a credit to this industry and I'll be sure to spread the good news - meaning your site and your knowledge. Randy

    Thanks for the response. I am planning to come check out your Club. It seems like a good idea on many levels. I understand the reasoning behind importing images into their respective folders via LR's process. In almost all cases, I do. There are times that I receive photos via email, for...

    Mobile Sync after restoring catalog from backup

    Yes, the current .lrcat file is now residing in Dropbox on my IHD. I have all my images in folders on my EHD and LR knows where almost all of them are at this point, I think? I am not sure I need smart previews of all my images, except for the fact that I may need access to them when my hard...

    I did not get there. Self-employment strikes again! I will at some point, simply because I want to network with other photographers and improve that part of my hobby. In the meantime, I have managed to get some things sorted out, but the Sync with mobile feature is still stuck and missing many...

    Help with LR catalog and an external drive - Houston, we have a problem...

    Fair warning: If I can get there, I have made a mess (I think) of my Lightroom. I do not know how to correct it, or how to properly start over if that is what needs to be done. The more I compare LR to the EHD it is reading from, the more I see that is not the way it used to be. Many thousands...

    Excellent. That may be just what the doctor ordered. I will see if I can make it and will message you here if that is the case. Thank you.

    Mobile Sync after restoring catalog from backup

    Thanks for the quick response. I have managed to get the images that ARE in my LR Mobile collection sets (on my Macbook) to sync with the Mobile app on my phone - by selecting the box next to their name and reactivating (?) their sync status, as indicated by the little horizontal double arrow...

    Thanks for the response. I will do just as you suggest, being that "resolving the issue" is the issue. Hopefully others can pitch in if possible. Take care, Randy

    Mobile Sync after restoring catalog from backup

    Victoria, I had a similar 'Non-syncing' LR Mobile issue and did as you suggested above and then reopened LR on my Macbook. Now, my LR Mobile iPhone app has no images, none are being added and some are missing from the LR Mobile Collection in my desktop app. Admittedly, those images were missing...

    Cletus, Perhaps I could buy you a coffee/lunch/whiskey/all of the above and we could meet to try to resolve this? I'd be willing to compensate you for the time it takes to walk me through this process. That way, you can see my actual dilemma in person and make more sense of it. I am in Cypress...

    Help with LR catalog and an external drive - Houston, we have a problem...

    Thanks for the response. I copied, via my Mac OS, all my local HD images that LR manages. Therefore, the folder structure should be identical on both the local and the external drives. I also have images already on that EHD that LR has not seen yet, but I want it to. I want LR to manage all the...

    Help with LR catalog and an external drive - Houston, we have a problem...

    I presume you mean to select the topmost folder from the current location (my local HD) and redirect it to the new location (the EHD)? If I do as you suggest, it brings me to subfolders 'inside' that folder and wants me to select one of them, not all of them. I cannot see how to select only the...

    Howdy to all from Houston, TX. I have copied all my laptop's internal photos to an external drive, adding them to existing folders of images that were being stored off my laptop, because of hard drive limitations. All of my images are now inside one folder on the new external drive. I want LR...
