    DropBox for LR Classic Library

    Thank you Victoria! I think I have the problem resolved - I had two different user names assigned to my two Macs, and when I tried to point to a folder in the Dropbox location each computer kept changing the file name to reflect its own user name. I had to go back to one Mac and change the...

    DropBox for LR Classic Library

    I'm using the latest version of Catalina. I see where I can specify storing presets with the catalog (in Dropbox), but there were some warnings about that in your book, and I don't add that many new presets so I think I can manage updating those on both computers as needed. I've scoured your...

    DropBox for LR Classic Library

    I recently set this up on two computers with Lightroom Classic and it seems to be working smoothly - but I also use LR on an iPad. I’m wondering how to manage the mobile files that are created on the iPad and synced via the Creative Cloud? They were originally placed on my desktop computer...

    Smart Previews Only in Lightroom CC

    Thank you so much, that makes sense.

    Smart Previews Only in Lightroom CC

    Thanks @Victoria Bampton and @Jim Wilde - I do sometimes want to pull something into Photoshop when I’m traveling, but am coming to terms with the fact that I’m fighting a losing battle. The workflow becomes so cumbersome to try to maintain full res files in the cloud with LR Classic as my...

    Smart Previews Only in Lightroom CC

    I'm using Lightroom on two computers, Lightroom Classic on one (my primary computer) and Lightroom CC on a smaller computer (which I use for travel). Several of my photos in Lightroom CC indicate that there is only a smart preview available in the cloud. I thought what I needed to do to fix...

    Lightroom Cloud is Stuck Syncing a File on MacBook

    Intriguing! But to make sure I have a full res image in the cloud I would have to add it directly, correct? Not just by syncing Classic with LR Mobile? If I create enough sync issues for myself maybe I would get better at finding/resolving them for myself...

    Lightroom Cloud is Stuck Syncing a File on MacBook

    @Victoria Bampton I contacted Adobe and they helped me resolve the problem. The issue was not in my Synced photographs; it was in the deleted files still residing in the cloud. I had over 10,000 of them in both places but the counts in the folders differed by 87. We deleted all the photos in...

    Lightroom Cloud is Stuck Syncing a File on MacBook

    Thanks, Victoria. There are no files in a "syncing" state; I come up with a black hole. The number of photos in LR Cloudy All Photos also matches what's on the web and what's in LR Classic on my main computer, so I'm not missing anything. Is there some file I can delete on my MacBook that...

    Editing File in PS when using LR Classic on one Computer and LR Cloudy on a Second Computer

    Thanks, I figured as much. I sure wish there was an option to upload and download full-sized files in both Photoshop and Classic.

    Editing File in PS when using LR Classic on one Computer and LR Cloudy on a Second Computer

    I primarily use LR Classic on a MacBook Pro but I also use LR Cloudy on a smaller MacBook. I have PS on both computers. I keep the main copy of my files on the MacBook Pro and on an EHD, then sync a portion of them to the Adobe cloud so they're accessible in LR on the MacBook and my iPad...

    Lightroom Cloud is Stuck Syncing a File on MacBook

    I'm currently using Lightroom Classic on a MacBook Pro and Lightroom Cloud on a small MacBook and my mobile devices. I always try to import and do heavy-lift editing in Lightroom Classic on my MB Pro. I only sync a portion of my LR Classic photos to the cloud, mostly more recent photos and any...

    Lightroom Classic vs Camera Raw Features

    Thank you Victoria. I’ll review those chapters; I’ve read them but every time I go back I learn something new. At some point (I hope!) the right solution will become clear.

    Lightroom Classic vs Camera Raw Features

    Thanks. I keep trying to find a way to keep all my photos in the cloud so I can move back and forth between two computers without losing the Classic features, having to work on files that aren't complete, and/or creating sync problems. I'll do some more poking around but every time I look...

    Lightroom Classic vs Camera Raw Features

    Thanks Paul. I thought I have a pretty good idea of what I would lose by going from LR Classic to LR CC - there are some editing features (e.g., range mask) missing from CC that I wouldn't want to give up. I guess my question should have been - are things missing from LR CC that are still...

    Lightroom Classic vs Camera Raw Features

    If I were to give up Lightroom Classic in favor of Lightroom CC plus Camera Raw - are there any editing features I would be giving up? Publishing services? Printing? Are Camera Raw's noise reduction features as good as LR Classic?

    CMD + Delete shortcut not working - Problem Solved

    My workflow involves rejecting any photos I don't want in a folder, then I go back and hit "CMD + Delete", get a question about whether I want to just remove the photos from LR or delete them from the disk, I choose delete. Over the past 2-3 weeks the CMD + Delete shortcut had quit working in...

    Using Lightroom Classic and CC

    The problem is back - I can delete all rejected photos using the menu command; I can filter for rejected photos then hit delete and it works. It's when I try hitting command + delete that it fails. I also tried command + delete with only rejected photos selected and it failed. So something to...

    Using Lightroom Classic and CC

    Thanks - not sure now, I had been away from my MacBook Pro for a while and before I posted the question I turned it off. Rebooting seems to have cleared up the issue. But I'm going to assume using the menu command would have worked. It could have been something to do with my keyboard, which...

    Using Lightroom Classic and CC

    One issue has popped up as I’m working through this new workflow, and I haven’t been able to find an answer. I’ve been alternately culling recent photos using “pick” and “reject” flags on both my MacBook LR CC App and my iPad LR Mobile app, with the goal of actually deleting them on my MacBook...

    Using Lightroom Classic and CC

    I've followed the instructions in the Classic book for working in Classic on my main computer, storing all photos there, and syncing a good chunk of them to mobile so that I can work with many more photos on multiple devices. So far, so good - but I'd like to verify that I have a good...

    Using Lightroom Classic and CC

    Update: I bit the bullet and bought both of Victoria’s books on Classic and CC, looks like I’ll be able to design a workflow that works for me based on the info in those books.

    Using Lightroom Classic and CC

    I’ve been using Lightroom Classic on my Mac desktop and Lightroom CC on a traveling small MacBook. I have all my photos stored on my desktop; I keep an album “working collection” in LR Classic that I sync up with LR Mobile and use that with Lightroom CC on my MacBook when traveling. I would...
