    2015.2.1 lost control to change thumbnail size

    Yep, tool bar was missing. My settings disappeared during the migration to windows 10 and it never occurred to me that the tool bar was optional since I've always had it on and use it frequently. Embarrassing.

    2015.2.1 lost control to change thumbnail size

    Previously there was a button on the panel between the filmstrip and grid where one could add the thumbnail size control as well as some other optional things in that panel. Now the panel is locked down and nothing can be added to it and the ability to change the size of the thumbnails hidden...

    published status in collection folder view

    Well, when you right click on a publish collection icon, your choices include create gallery and create folder, and since on smugmug they are called folders, that's how I think of them. Right click also provides a choice of "duplicate published collection set," so I collection set is also...

    published status in collection folder view

    There is a handy feature in the publish collection area: If I click on a folder containing 1 or more publish collections, all the images in all the galleries contained in that folder show up. If I then click Publish Now, LR will work it's way through, publishing gallery by gallery. However...

    Anchor a panorama?

    Is there any way to tell LR (or PS), which of a series of images to be stitched which one I want in the center? I need a cylindrical result, not perspective or spherical. The series is a 360 degree sequence, with 20% overlap. I am doing a series of panoramas of the same scene over time. How...

    Panorama creation problem

    I have seen this and similar anomalies. I had one with 8 images that PS handled fine, but LR only merged 5 of them, and in fact merged 2 and 4, skipping 3! (At a quick glance it looked ok; trees and shrubs) On the other hand, the last 20 or so, including several with 24 images, were handled...

    Lightroom CC Issues after Install – For Windows Users

    Photo Merge - Panorama fails to merge properly taken set of images. LR 6 only finds 6 of 8 images; exporting to PS and using default photomerge finds all 8. Or tells me it doesn't have enough information to do the merge, yet PS works with the same images. I've been working on a series of 360...

    LR 5.7.1 locking up whole system

    It turned out to be a failing disk drive, the drive that had the catalog on it. I had to set up the disk check tool, which had to be run on boot up because the disk had the user profiles on it. (explorer, right click on drive in left panel, select tools and the "check disk for errors" tool.) It...

    LR 5.7.1 locking up whole system

    Yes, I had tried that. The result was that after the splash screen, I got the top and bottom panels and the grey center area of LR, no sidebars. The splash remained in the center area and LR was non-responsive. And not much longer after that, everything else locked up again.

    LR 5.7.1 locking up whole system

    The past few days I've been struggling with LR going into the splash screen on startup and then freezing there. For the next 10 minutes or so, I can work with other programs, but after about 10 minutes, everything else I have open freezes and becomes non-responsive, and I cannot start any new...

    spell check captions and long captions

    I am working on a project that requires long captions on many of the photos, preferably broken up into paragraphs. Is there any alternative to the little text box in the metadata panel?

    editing multiple captions at one time doesn't seem to work any more.

    No, I always have the grid view on when I change multiple titles or captions because I want to make sure of the selection. Titles work sometimes, but captions don't.

    editing multiple captions at one time doesn't seem to work any more.

    In the past, I'd often give the same caption to a set of selected photos. Recently I noticed that the caption is set only for the target photo, and I have to copy and paste one by one to get the captions copied over. I used to get a warning about applying to multiple items, but that no longer...

    titles disappearing and other odd behaviors

    And now I've run into a keyword bug: I'd edited keywords in a gallery, then moved to another gallery. The keyword input box shows the keywords of the last photo I'd been working on in the previous gallery, not the keywords that should have been there. I see that there are a number of other...

    titles disappearing and other odd behaviors

    LR 5.6 on Windows 7 64bit; 115,000 images Several times in the past few days, I've entered a title and when I hit enter, it disappears. I have to shut down LR and restart before I can get it to accept a title for that image. I can go to another image and the title field works fine, but when I...
