    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    XMP is an open standard developed by Adobe, File management, metadata integration | Adobe Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP). So many applications use it. And yes, Adobe applications can read it. Remember that it's just a language, and if say there's an image adjustment that is proprietary to...

    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    After getting back to the Passport, I discovered that yes, it's the case of the sidecar extension names that caused the problem. Photo Mechanic had been set to uppercase, which of course didn't matter on my macOS drives. But apparently it does on the NTFS wifi volume. I changed the prefs to...

    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    Yes. I'm not quite sure what you're saying, since many many applications create .XMP sidecars (although not sure about the case sensitivity issue, if that's what you mean). Some were created by Graphic Converter, some by Photo Mechanic. All work fine if imported in other ways, and have for...

    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    I have a WD My Passport Pro drive. I was using it as a networked drive recently; basically it has a build in router and the drive mounts on my system (macOS) just like any shared network drive. I had added some keywords, etc to the raw images and therefore had the raws+sidecars on that drive...

    ISO dependent preset generator

    Zenon it doesn't sound like you need ISO specific presets. The point is that different adjustments would be auto-applied to different ISOs. If you use the same adjustments for all images at import this feature isn't going to help you. The text editing is basically that you have to start with...

    ISO dependent preset generator

    Cool idea for some. I think Brad Friedl also has a plugin that can do what Adobe's feature does and more too, the Bulk Develop plugin. I actually have found that I am more inclined to set a default NR or some other stuff by camera, rather than needing to set different defaults by ISO. As to...

    ISO dependent preset generator

    Lr Classic now allows one to set defaults for cameras, and defaults specific to certain ISOs. Set up raw defaults To set up such a default one must create an iso dependent preset, and as of right now there is no Lr tool to do so, one must download the sample file and use a text editor to create...

    Lr Classic won't save destination folder from import to import

    That's a good idea, but it doesn't solve my particular problem. The files go to where they're supposed to, but if I say choose a folder, then save as a preset, then use the preset at the next import but want to select a new folder, I still have to drill down through the hierarchy of folders. In...

    Lr Classic won't save destination folder from import to import

    That's the problem; docking doesn't "stick" between import sessions. So if I do have to dive into the destinations to change them, I have to drill all the way down from the root level of my boot drive, a big PITA.

    Lr Classic won't save destination folder from import to import

    Maybe I'm missing something simple, but I seem to recall that Lr Classic would always show the correct destination folder in the sidebar of the Import module, not the root, when using the "Organize by Date" option. There were occasions when I want to move that around, or just verify where it's...

    Synching a new catalog with imported, previously synched images

    Adobe's page does distinguish from the earliest iteration and then changed. Frankly, given what I explain below, best to just start over with smart previews. So, ugh. First, originals. Say shots you've taken with Lr Mobile's camera. Or auto imported from the cloudy version. The situation where...

    Synching a new catalog with imported, previously synched images

    Yes, I was wondering about unsynching as well. The images have unique keywords, so I can find them easily, and anything Lr would download wouldn't be a real duplicate, so maybe worth experimenting. And since my download speeds are far higher than upload, maybe easier to err in that direction...

    Synching a new catalog with imported, previously synched images

    I had an old Classic catalog that was synched with the cloud. About 700 images were synched. For reasons I won't bore you with, that catalog has been imported into a new catalog, along with those 700 images. I want to now synch New catalog, and stop synching Old catalog. Under the instructions...

    Need a replacement for obsolete Image Ingester app

    It uses DNG Converter to render previews for images, yes. It can also use it to convert files. But it's not part of the ingestion process. I've seen that suggested before, but I think the consensus is that it slows down ingestion and if one wanted to do that, Lr does a good job. The focus is on...
