    Help with my iMac setup and moving to a bigger one

    As you know, SSD drives are very expensive, especially Thunderbolt 3 ones. How "large" is large for you? I have 6 TB of photos, so an SSD is not a reasonable option.

    Changing default Photo Text size and Offset in Book Module

    Thank you, that takes care of the Photo Text size. I also want to change the Offset in Text/Photo Text so that it will apply to all the photos in the Auto Layout. How can I add that as a default?

    Changing default Photo Text size and Offset in Book Module

    I have a question about photo text in the Book Module. I added a title to all my photos for my book in the Library Module, so they appear beneath every photo. The default that is created is larger text than I want and is closer to the photo than I want (the offset). If I click and drag over the...

    How to set up LR Classic in a New User (Mac)

    Well it's really not germane to my question, but I have no secrets. I use Lightroom and Photoshop CC 2020, both the latest versions, on a Mac with OS 10;14;6. The Lightroom Catalog is on my boot drive in a Shared Folder, and my photos are on an external drive. Photoshop CC 2020 started acting...

    How to set up LR Classic in a New User (Mac)

    Yes I had moved the preview folder but I had neglected to fiddle with permissions. After doing so, on the New User Lightroom opens just fine with all the thumbnails showing photos. However, when I try Photo/Edit in/Edit in Photoshop CC 2020 I get this message: My photos are in an external...

    How to set up LR Classic in a New User (Mac)

    OK, I put the LR catalog and the two data files into the Shared Folder and my LR catalog now opens in the New User. However, in Library mode the thumbnails don't show the photo, it's greyed out. The file info is present below the photo. If you double click on the thumbnail it opens up the large...

    Lr can't merge to panorama more than 4 or 5 photos

    I have the latest version of LR Classic CC. In the past I easily merged up to 10 photos, but now everytime I try to merge more than four photos it can't do it: I get a message like "4 out of 9 photos were unable to be merged". I take the shots on a tripod and swivel the ball head, no fancy...

    When I import photos from an SD card in my card reader (using Copy photos to a new location and add to catalog) and choose to make a second copy to a folder in an external drive, LR creates a new subfolder in the external drive folder titled : "Imported on...X". Is there a way to stop it from...
