• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Just a quick head's up - we'll be moving to a new server on Wednesday 20th November around 2:30PM GMT. There should be very little downtime, but it may take your DNS servers up to 72 hours to update (although you can clear them manually).

    What Am I Missing??

    I just wanted to thank you all for your patience and excellent help! I now have successfully synced smart previews of specific photo groups from Classic on my PC to the cloud. I did this by creating collections in Classic for each related group of photos, turned on sync for each collection and...

    What Am I Missing??

    Hi, Folks, Just getting back to this idea. I re-read through all your great tutorials, etc., but I'm still very timid to start and have lots more questions. I hope you're still willing to help, but if not, I'll understand that this is a long list of questions! o_O Jim Wilde said I could use...

    What Am I Missing??

    PhilBurton, I am retired now, but I was a QA lead for many years, and later a software development manager. I don't write any code. I got into QA in the early 80s, at a water engineering firm that used VAX computers with dumb terminals on people's desks. It wasn't called QA in those days -...

    What Am I Missing??

    I really thank you all for your detailed and patient explanations! I need to figure out what I want to do now. Oh, and Phil Burton, maybe not a curmudgeon, but it does say you're a "senior" member... ;) But, yeah, I agree. I assume the reason Adobe opted to release this confused mess...

    What Am I Missing??

    Thanks for your thoughts, everyone! MarkNicholas and Jim Wilde, it sounds like having some smart previews from my desktop Lr 8.x Classic available for viewing from my phone via the cloud as well as being able to quickly upload phone photos to my Lr Classic on the desktop are two uses I would...

    What Am I Missing??

    MarkNicholas, thank you. Your uses actually sound like what I'd like to be able to do. Would you be able to point me to step-by-steps for setting up to do those things? My fear (as I said) is that in my ignorance about setting up Lr cloud functionality, I'll inadvertently turn on some sync...

    What Am I Missing??

    Thanks, Ferguson. Appreciate your POV and it sounds right for me, too. :)

    What Am I Missing??

    Am I seriously missing something I'd really love by not using the cloud-based version of Lr? Background: I've been using Lr for about five years. I use Lightroom Classic 8.x via the Photography subscription plan on a windows 10 desktop. I also use Photoshop. I sell my work, mostly...

    Editing Watermarks On The Fly During Export?

    Thanks, Rikki, It's pretty simple, I sell my photos as artwork for people to hang on their walls. I have found that people appreciate signed/dated artwork and prefer the signature visible but not too obvious.

    Watermarking

    Thanks, Jim, but "where it was" doesn't exist anymore, since I totally reorganized my folder structure. :(

    Library module Lights out

    I have Classic 7.0.1 and have the same problem (Windows 10). I must admit that until reading this thread, I never thought of using Lights Out for the Grid - I have only used it for Loupe View. But now that I see how it could look, I'd love to be able to use it for Grid AND Survey Views. For...

    Operating System: Windows 10 (latest version) Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Lightroom Classic CC 7.0.1 Hi, All, Here's another Watermarking question: I use graphic (as opposed to text) watermarks extensively to add my signature and year date to my photos on export. These...

    Please Help! Custom Watermarks Don't Work after Upgrade to 6.7

    I have a long list of custom watermarks that I use frequently. I upgraded to LR 6.7 a few days ago, and now when I attempt to use one of my custom watermarks, they aren't applied to the image. The list is still visible in LR, but I'm guessing the pointer to the watermarks got messed up. How...
