    Bulk change Person keywords

    All sorted! Just a small SQL statement required and that did in bulk in a second what would have taken many hours to do manually inside LR! UPDATE AgLibraryKeyword SET includeOnExport = 0 WHERE keywordType = 'person'; Thank you all for your assistance!

    Bulk change Person keywords

    Hi @johnrellis Thanks for your quick reply. I'm quite a technical person therefore i'd like to have a go at modifying the db directly (after a good backup of course). Do you have any possible topics or threads that I could look at to get an idea of where to start with this?

    Bulk change Person keywords

    I have about 500 Person keywords and need to edit them all to stop them from getting exported. What's the best way of editing all the Person keywords in bulk to toggle that option off? Thanks, Neil

    Publish metadata only

    Got it! There is a "Resend metadata to Flickr" feature in the "Plugin Extras" menu. Only suddenly thought to look there. It works perfectly! This will save many days of work and bandwidth!

    Publish metadata only

    Hmmm ok. I wonder how I can find out? I've been through the plugin options and cannot see that choice.

    Publish metadata only

    I am working on my personal website which is due to launch before the end of the year. I have built a custom photo gallery which uses Flickr as the backend. I use Lightroom and jFriedl's Flickr Publish plugin to publish the photos from Lightroom to Flickr which my site then accesses via...

    Conflicting metadata problem

    Hey, I've just imported approximately 5000 mostly heic photos from my iPhone into Lightroom. For some reason a lot of them are showing the following icon in the corner of their previews: If i click on the icon I get this message: Just to be on the safeside, I click "Import settings...

    Importing avi files

    Ah I've just spotted: AVI files on macOS: Beginning with Lightroom Classic CC 8.0 and Lightroom CC 2.0 (October 2018 releases), you can no longer import new AVI files on macOS. The existing AVI files in your catalog play as expected in Lightroom CC and in a separate window from the Library...

    Importing avi files

    Hello, I am trying to organise some of the older stacks of files I have sat on my file server and i've come across old videos taken on a number of old cameras. They are AVI files. Logically they need to be imported into Lightroom so they can sit alongside the photos taken on the same day...

    Photos on NAS?

    Excellent. Thanks for the info. It's looking like this server is precisely what I need. Will make things sooooo much easier to manage.

    Photos on NAS?

    Hey, I'm currently working out a new way to keep all my data organised. Currently I have my MacBook with two external 3Tb drives attached. One for storage and the second is a backup. What I have been testing yesterday is a storage server. I have built a PC out of some spare parts and set it up...

    Video syncing to Classic CC

    Ah I see what was happening, The counts not matching was confusing me, the videos are syncing down but I wasn;t noticing as they had been recorded in the new iOS video format which Lightroom didn't recognise. All sorted now. It's silly that the counts between Mobile, Web and Classic don't match...

    HEIC, HEIF etc

    That's cool, I understand that being a developer myself. I couldn't find any information anywhere about whether or not they were already supported or not. But going by your reply, obviously not. :-) Thankyou
