    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...

    Preparing to upgrade to MacOS 10.15

    I'd also suggest G64. Using the macOS "About This Mac" method was wildly inaccurate, as was the listing within it called "Legacy apps." There were many applications I had deleted long ago, as well as many that it missed. Go64 also has a nice feature where you can do a "Show in Finder" so you can...

    Need a replacement for obsolete Image Ingester app

    Boy, that's a lot of effort and expense for a dead program. I'm not sure how you're using Image Ingester, but there are other alternatives. We've mentioned Hazel, but it's not yet Catalina compatible. If I was going to spend money on it I'd just get Photo Mechanic instead of Parallels, since it...

    Adding time to one's Photography Plan subscription

    Yes, that's exactly what I've done in the past. But I wonder if it's changed? the problem is that software is usually a no-return item, and I wouldn't want to get stiffed.

    Catalogs Storing Photos and Catalog in Dropbox

    You could travel with smart previews instead of originals if space is an issue. And where your catalogued photos are depends on where you put them. If you imported them or moved them to your hard drive, that's where they are. If you didn't, they aren't there. You have control of that via Lr at...

    Adding time to one's Photography Plan subscription

    I was considering adding another year to my existing Photo Plan Lr/Ps/20GB subscription when I noticed Amazon had it on sale for $100/yr. My current subscription runs out in 2021. In order to be sure it could be done, I contacted Adobe support via a chat (that took almost an hour) only to have...

    Upgrading iMac query

    I use a 2014 retina iMac with Lr and have no issues. Sure, I'd want Lr to go faster, but everyone does. The retina screen is essential. Not only is it more beautiful than a 2009 screen, but because of the higher resolution editing is more effective: you can see more of your image onscreen at say...

    Keywording People

    And in general, if you see ">" in the keyword entry space it usually means that Lr has found different instances of the keyword, like when you have California>San Jose and Costa Rica>San Jose. That way you can tell which Jose you've got. If you just see "San Jose" it means there's no ambiguity...

    Keywording People

    I believe that | is read by Lr if it finds it in a string of keywords during an import. So if you enter "text|textx|textxx" in a flat keyword list in some other application and save it to an image file, then when Lr imports it will generate a hierarchy like thus: text>textx>textxx. And per usual...

    metadata to hashtags

    Thanks! Missed that. Do you include hashtag symbols themselves in the list?

    metadata to hashtags

    Yeah, I don't where that warning came from. But I turned it off. Still haven't quite figured out the hashtags though....

    metadata to hashtags

    No; Classic. There are no plugins in CC. Ignore rhe warning and make sure you have the latest version of the plugin.

    metadata to hashtags

    The plugin is still working for me. But I'm not sure about hashtags; I enter them in IG afterwards. Version 0.6.1594.

    Keyboard Tamer on Mac - does it still work?

    I'm not a Keyboard Tamer user, but on macOS I do use the Keyboard preference pane to add custom keyboard shortcuts to Lr Classic. A problem, however, is that you cannot override default Lr shortcuts. IOW, Open in Reference View is still going to be Shift-R. But you can add say a keyboard...

    Catalogs Continuity and passing images on by generation

    Well, think about how we used to pass on images. We had nice photo albums done by our more OCD relatives, with dates and descriptions, nicely organized, maybe one album per family. Or nice slideshows, with labels on the slide holders, all oriented properly. Aaaah. Then we had the shoebox of...
