    Color Checker Passport

    Another update: I'm using a Canon 5D SR with, in this instance, a 100m Macro lens. I carrried out some more tests this morning and it seems that the problem, for me at least, is that the lightroom plug-in is now fussy about the size of the colour target within the frame. If it's too large the...

    Color Checker Passport

    Interesting. I'm on an M1 Mini and the version of the plugin is 2.2.0.0. I'll try and find an older version and see if that will install. Thanks

    Color Checker Passport

    Update: I can create a profile using the standalone version of the ColourChecker Colour Calibration app by exporting the chart image from Lightroom as a DNG. I guess that means it's the Lightroom Plug-in that is at fault?

    Color Checker Passport

    Thanks Johan, Just tried that, also giving Adobe DNG Converter the same access, no change. I've just seen some additional info in the Lightroom Plugin Manager. Under the Colour Checker plugin entry, instead of 'installed and running' it says 'installed, may not work'. With the status of 'This...

    Batch rename stacks

    Is it possible to batch rename stacked/grouped images? Simple example: Five stacks with 3 images shown in the library window, all expanded. A total of 15 images shown. I want to rename the files within each stack as a group all in one go. Rename to something like: 'nameofstack1_01...

    Reading XMP sidecar files automatically on import

    Yeah - I turned off 'write to xmp' deliberately. That's what threw me, I was expecting a 'read from xmp' option in the same area of the preferences. When I couldn't find it I wasn't sure if it was possible. Hey ho - live and learn as they say. Thanks again for your time.

    Reading XMP sidecar files automatically on import

    CRACKED IT! - yeehaaaaaa Thank you Johan, it was your insistence that it was working with the same setup that forced me to dig deeper. Rob, you nailed it. But I didn't see your contribution until after I had found the solution. The fly in the ointment was as Rob pointed out, I had a develop...

    Reading XMP sidecar files automatically on import

    Cletus, your explanations of roundtripping makes perfect sense. I was aware of that in the deeper recesses of my brain, but had forgotten, so not a good point of reference. I bow to your greater knowledge :-) Johan. Yes, a completely new import. I'm on the same Mac OS and software versions as...

    Reading XMP sidecar files automatically on import

    OK folks take FastRawViewer out of the equation completely, this is obviously confusing everyone. Open a RAW file in Photoshop, reduce the exposure by three stops, for example. Close Photoshop. Import the same file [now with an XMP Sidecar file added] into LIghtroom. The file does not register...

    Reading XMP sidecar files automatically on import

    Apologies if I've not made it clear Johan. I don't expect FastRawViewer to be compatible, as you say it's not an Adobe App, why should it. There is not a problem with the XMP file from FastRawViewer or Photoshop. I can make a RAW edit in Photoshop, open the file in FastRawViewer and it will...

    Reading XMP sidecar files automatically on import

    Thanks Johan, I have that checked. I tried both with and without :-( As I say, you would think that Photoshop [RAW] would play nicely even if 3rd party Apps don't.

    Reading XMP sidecar files automatically on import

    Just did the same test in Photoshop to make sure. Same thing happens. So Adobe app considers another Adobe app to be incompatible, go figure. Considering we can round trip quite happily as long as the version of Camera Raw is the same something else must be going on.
