    weird things going on (panel missing, import into wrong folder)

    oooh wow, thanks so much! I was dreading it was a bug or something :-) I'll definitely keep an eye on the pref page bug. I've managed to work around it so far by dragging around, thankfully!

    weird things going on (panel missing, import into wrong folder)

    I'm getting my stepmom back on Lightroom and I have 3-4 weird problems: - although I specify that photos synced from the cloud should be stored in her Photos directory, they go on the external hard drive - when importing photos, I don't have the panel where I should be able to choose the...

    migrating without enough cloud storage

    Yes, I got that, what I'm wondering is what might happen if I migrate before I get sufficient cloud storage back. Will it just stall uploads of originals to the cloud, and resume once I get enough storage, or is it going to mess with the migration in such a way that things will be broken...

    migrating without enough cloud storage

    if when I migrate I only have the 20GB, and switch to 1TB in a week or two, will this create trouble from a sync point of view?

    migrating without enough cloud storage

    storage limit is 20GB, as expected

    migrating without enough cloud storage

    I'm going to migrate a catalog of about 80k photos from Classic to Cloudy. I had to switch plans temporarily (from LR 1TB to Photography 20GB) so that I could use Classic on the computer in question to fix a "missing photos" issue in the catalog. Classic won't be used in future, so I'm going to...

    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    Thanks again! I took the plunge and edited capture time on all photos, and it's solved the problem sufficiently for me to be able to move forward in the great migration project :-)

    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    So, actually, I think it's not so bad. Those other photos with "bad dates" are actually photos taken between midnight and 1am (we're in GMT +1 here). So they just get a 1h shift, and it might even be putting them back on the right time. I'm going to gingerly do a few more experiments with the...

    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    So, by hunting around, I have found many photos here and there who have a "displayed" date and time which is different from the "pragmatic" date and time (the one lightroom uses to sort by capture date or filter by date). This is quite a problem, because it seems the "real" date is the one that...

    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    Oh thanks! that is super helpful. Hadn't thought of using Edit Capture Time to simply "write" the capture time. I just checked, and the first photo is wrong, but not the second. I'll get a previous version of the catalog and see if it gets rid of the consequences of my "write metadata to file"...

    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    Here's some additional info. The two photos on the right have the "date missing" problem. I just noticed that the first one's date seemed to have changed to today. I think I did "save metadata to file" on it. But it's still in the 2014 filter. What is going on?

    no capture/creation date in metadata in certain photos

    I'm trying to clean up a friend's old LR catalog before migrating everything to LR Cloudy. When we first tried simply importing the original photos to Cloudy we realised that many photos had "lost" their creation date somewhere in the move. So I've gone back to the original LR catalog (upgraded...

    selecting photos imported at a given moment

    here capture dates are a problem because lots of photos have been imported from whatsapp and stripped of EXIF (yes I know, not my photos!) by "recently added" album, do you mean the "menu bar" under "All Photos"? the problem with that one is that when you are importing 20k photos and it tells...

    selecting photos imported at a given moment

    I'm helping a friend move from Photos to Lightroom (around 100k photos). This means we're adding big batches of photos to Lightroom mobile from her iPhone photo roll. We're doing it year by year because the first bulk add of 40k photos seemed to work only partially. As I'm concerned about...
