    How temporarily stop Lightroom syncing?

    Thanks very much Paul. Do I win the prize for the easiest question of the week?!

    How temporarily stop Lightroom syncing?

    I am on holiday in a remote cottage with negligible internet. How do I stop Lightroom trying to upload photos for the week, and hogging what little bandwidth there is. There doesn’t seem to be an obvious setting, unless I have to sign out. Thanks

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    Thanks very much Johan. About using the Lightroom camera on the iPhones instead of the Apple one. If this was just me I would probably do this, and aim to use the Apple cam for the junk, (screenshots, note taking etc) and the Lightroom cam for photos that might become keepers. But my wife is...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    This is all going very well, but I have a question about working practice using them together. I understand that if I delete a sync'd image in Cloudy will simply unsync it in Classic not delete it. So my standard practice, as you suggested, is to flag as rejected in Cloudy and then delete all...

    Imported images seem to get "stuck" in local storage

    Thanks for this. So provided we are sure the originals have been uploaded it is safe to manually delete the originals (on Mac) out of the Lightroom Library>Package Contents>long alphanumeric name>Originals?

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    So you were able to use the local library from an earlier backup with no issues? It is a while since I got the cloned library message and can't recall the details, except the linked solution was to delete it and redownload. (I realise your point is that it didn't help because it was overwritten...

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    It rejects it, and tells you to delete it and download a new copy from the Cloud. Recovery from a disk failure or setting up a new computer is extremely easy with Cloudy. No migrating of files, just sign in.

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    Thanks. As I read Victoria's What's New, it is on a picture by picture basis and you would have to make multiple snapshots just before making the editing errors? Maybe that is a misinterpretation. I am not familiar with snapshots in Classic which she says are similar.

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    Yes I realise having Classic involved changes the picture, and is not how Adobe expects or wants most Cloudy users to work, but it is a new venture for me so learning. So most Cloudy users have no way back from wrong edits.

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    This poses a question. Suppose I made some wrong edits in Cloudy, these edits will sync to Classic. Can I then restore a backup Classic catalog to recover from the wrong edits? Correct edits should sync back to Cloudy?

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    Yes thanks, that really why I was asking. As you say pity if you made a mistake. I am a bit surprised this hasn't been more of an issue for the anti-cloud brigade ....no back up catalog.

    Is there any point in backing up the Lightroom (cloudy) Library?

    My understanding is that Lightroom Cloudy only uploads the original (unedited) photos to the Adobe Cloud. The edits and album info are in the Library. As far as I can tell the Cloudy Library is also in the Adobe Cloud, because when I have cloned a drive containing the Library, and then tried to...

    Finding duplicates problems

    Ha Ha so true! I have 79k in my library and maybe 3-4k duplicates, but 30-40k should probably be culled, and better use of my time.

    Finding duplicates problems

    Yes it will automatically flag duplicates but that is putting off the task. I want to try and avoid going back later, hoping I could see all versions at the same time and select the one to keep. But at the moment it seems like a more detailed review of each tends to be needed. Still...

    Finding duplicates problems

    I may need to retract my previous post. I have found that at least for some pics there was a third copy so it wasn't deleting both. I have been experimenting with Duplicate Finder as well, and finding similar problems in trusting what I see to the point of having the confidence to delete...

    Finding duplicates problems

    I have just been experimenting with the Teekesselchen duplicates finder plugin mentioned in this article. As a first test I only applied it to a collection of 350 photos that I know has many duplicates. Complete disaster! While it found many correct duplicates, it also marked both copies of...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    Thanks Jim, I took on board your earlier advice about letting go of personal structures for masters and am using the standard date based folder structure.

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    Wow! Thanks for taking the trouble to write all that down. I am also somewhat anal about these things, so prone to doing things that may have unexpected consequences when trying to nail down the last .01%. I will file your saga away in case I get in a similar situation. I guess the take away...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    A couple of follow up questions I meant to ask please: 1. This new Classic Catalog and its masters are on an external Samsung T5. Is there any reason why I should not use it attached to my MacBook, and switch between iMac and MacBook? I do this regularly with my old non-syncing Classic without...

    I have tendency not to give things enough time to sort them selves out! Thanks again for all the help and encouragement.

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    After a few days recovery I felt I wanted to have one more go, so did as you suggest above. After another week of syncing I have 79,259 pics downloaded to Classic from the Cloud and all totals line up on all devices, Classic and Cloudy. Hurrah! I have not done a folder synchronisation or turned...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    I think you have summarised my current feeling perfectly in that paragraph. It has been a very valuable exercise in which I have learned a lot thanks mainly to you. I think it was Johan who said in a spin off thread from this that when Classic and Cloudy are syncing Classic is the boss. This is...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    Snippet of info....I have just realised I don't need to turn on sync in Classic to check what the Sync Status in Cloudy is. The "Sync'd from Lightroom Classic" number two pics. Which are both ones I resized to bring them under the 200MB limit.
