    I'm Confused!

    According to the specs, the Canon 6D produces images of 3648 x 2432 pixels. That is exactly 3:2, so you would indeed not expect any visible cropping when the crop tool is set to 2:3. What are the exact dimensions when you do choose 3:2?

    What’s using this space.

    I have no idea what is taking that much space. I have a few images shown in cloud documents, but none of them downloaded to the iPad. The space Photoshop takes for data is only 127 MB.

    I'm Confused!

    Most likely it is just another name for the same thing. Do you see any actual copping, or is it just the ‘as shot’ you are confused about?

    lightroom edits not showing in Finder

    Lightroom only updates that preview if you tell it to do so. Menu 'Metadata - Update DNG Preview & Metadata'.

    Problem with Local Storage - Locally Stored Copies

    That is an option per album, so you turn it on or off by tapping on the three dots behind the album name.

    When Photoshop Just Does It Better

    And I confirmed that this is one area where Photoshop has the better tools.

    When Photoshop Just Does It Better

    To me, Photoshop begins where Lightroom ends. There may be a few situations where both applications can do the job but Photoshop does it better (retouching is indeed the one that comes to mind), but in principle anything I can do in Lightroom I will do in Lightroom, because that won't break the...

    Problem with Local Storage - Locally Stored Copies

    I have some 2000 photos in Lightroom on my iPhone. I have checked the option to store only smart previews, and I have also checked the option to store those smart previews locally (by enabling 'Store Locally' for all albums) so I can use Lightroom when I have no internet connection. Lightroom...

    Problem with Local Storage - Locally Stored Copies

    Sounds like you have enabled auto-import in Lightroom on the iPhone. When you reinstall the app, the app tries to reimport all the images from the camera roll, even though they have already been migrated to the cloud. Because you migrated those images already, there is no reason to keep them in...

    Problem with Local Storage - Locally Stored Copies

    That sounds like you have two copies of everything, a copy in the camera roll (which might be an original) and a copy in Lightroom? There should be no reason to re-import anything when you uninstall and reinstall the app, because everything should be synced to the cloud and so should...

    Edit-in options greyed out.

    Wow, that is a lousy backup application indeed!

    Try this: Go to Preferences - Performance and turn off the use of the Graphics Processor, or play around with tis settings.

    Recover Catalogue from Time Machine backup

    Sorry, but that is simply not true. Yes, Time Machine backs up incrementally, but the backups are in Finder format. I've copied files from a Time Machine backup using the Finder plenty of times, so I know this for a fact. I do agree that it's best to use Time Machine to recover files, but it is...

    Destination folder "" is not available

    Syncing is also importing if there are images not yet imported in Lightroom. Here's the top left of your screenshot.

    Destination folder "" is not available

    The two things could be unrelated. Lightroom says at the top left that it is importing pictures at their current location. That means that you selected the ‘ADD’ option at the top center of the import dialog, to only add the images to the catalog and not copy or move them. If you do not copy or...

    Edit-in options greyed out.

    Most likely the images are 'missing' because the drive letter has changed compared to the old computer. You can edit 'missing' images if you have a smart preview for them (and in that case you will not see the exclamation mark in the image mount), but to send an image to an external editor you...

    Recover Catalogue from Time Machine backup

    AFAIK, Time Machine backups are not compressed, they can be encrypted however. That depends on the settings. You can definitely use the Finder to copy something from a Time Machine backup to your main disk (I have done that many times), but it's much better to use Time Machine to do that. The...

    Recover Catalogue from Time Machine backup

    Robin, You cannot open a Lightroom catalog directly from a Time Machine backup, because Lightroom has no permissions to access a backup volume. What you need to do is restore your catalog with a backup. That means you must copy the backup catalog from the backup volume and place it in your...

    What Photos are and are not in a Lightroom Catalog

    Why would you create a new catalog? If you import photos and have checked the option to not import suspected duplicates, then the result should be the same. Lightroom will only import photos it thinks are new, just like it would if you would first import all photos in a new catalog and then...

    Keeping 2nd Lightroom display visible when I switch the 1st display to another app

    When I talk about a floating panel I mean something else. What you show here is the main Photoshop window. On a Mac you have an option to make that window into an 'application frame', or keep the main window and panels separate (via menu 'Window - Application Frame'). I don't think that option...

    Keeping 2nd Lightroom display visible when I switch the 1st display to another app

    The Lightroom second screen is a normal window, but it does not have the options for full screen or minimize, only the option to disable the window. Photoshop floating panels also disappear when the application goes to the back.

    Keeping 2nd Lightroom display visible when I switch the 1st display to another app

    It has nothing to do with full screen. If you make the secondary display a separate window, either on the first display or on another display, then it is also hidden when Lightroom goes to the back. I use an ultra wide display, so I have setup Lightroom like below.

    Lightroom misadventure while renaming external drive

    If Lightroom does not even list the folders anymore, then you did more than just rename the disk back to 'Photographs'. Do you have a recent catalog backup? Next time follow this advise. It's pretty easy to fix: Lightroom thinks my photos are missing—how do I fix it? | The Lightroom Queen

    Library module Lightroom Classic to External RAW Editor and back to Lightroom Classic?

    Either upgrade to Lightroom Classic, or download the free Adobe DNG Converter. With that app you can convert the CR3 files to DNG, which will open in older versions of Lightroom.
