    Quickly changing the lens for selected images

    I'm shooting my Leica Ms after a break and some of the lenses are uncoded, so I switch to manual, pick a nearest lens, and often forget to switch back to autodetection when returning to the 6-bit coded lenses. As a result I have a few cards where I roughly remember when I switched the lens but...

    Custom Order does not propagate to the cloud

    I'm building a gallery where I compare two cameras (Leica S Typ 007 and Hasselblad X1D ii) side by side. I added both sets of photos to a synced collection in Lr Classic, and made it Custom Order. I then rearranged all photos so that each pair A and B is next to each other in a stack of two...

    Copying Lens metadata to a series of photos verbatim

    I'm often shooting with Leicas and a few lenses are not 6-bit coded, meaning you might need to set the lens metadata manually if the Leica allows for it (which excludes screenless M60 and M-D). I've just realized that one of the manual settings overrides the 6-bit coding and is sticky, so all...

    Slow to change images with huge local storage on Windows

    I'm s huge fan of fast local and offline access to all my photos in Lr CC so always try to store all the albums locally. On the iPad Pro I manually store every album locally, and with the 1 TB storage I've been able to store all 380K photos. The albums switch at once and photos come up faster...

    Photoblog, Publish Services, Embedded Web Galleries

    I'm testing various photo blog solutions, and so far the closes I've come to what I want is Format.com that has an Lr publisher. Alas that is only one way -- if I add photos on iOS to Format app from Lr iOS directly they are not syncing back. SmugMug is two-way but lacks the blog layout...

    Lr CC Windows stuck syncing

    I've found Android microSD card with nominal 512GBN capacity disappearing and the whole setup unstable. So went ant bought a Surface Pro with 1TB storage and setup Lightroom CC. It got stuck syncing down my photos and is doing nothing now. Here we go again. Latest Lr CC 2.0.1. How do we get...

    First LrCC Android Impressions: the Holy Grail is Nigh!

    After being a loyal iOS only user for 11 years, I've finally decided to give Android a try with Note 9 -- most of all, for the S Pen, and the 512GB internal memory, and the microSD card for storing my Lr Mobile-uploaded albums, 330K+, locally. I also wanted to try importing in the field and...

    Moving a Catalog back and forth, what about syncing of the 1:1 and/or Smart Previews?

    I've been generating 1:1 Previews always, per Peter Krogh (and embedded full-size previews into DNGs as I convert to it). Now I have a dedicated SSD RAID 5 array for the catalog connected to the desktop iMac Pro, which uses about 2.5TB -- 6GB for the catalog itself, 2.2TB for Previews and 0.3TB...

    Figured it out: "New Lightroom" is just a toy. Lightroom==Classic. Only!

    I can't believe I was all worked up about the new "Lightroom" CC. It really is a glorified Web app wrapped in a local app. It starts sucking in web collections, and it also can tag things. It has no plugins, nothing of all the knowledge we poured into the product over the years. It is not at...

    I've been uploading everything to Lr Mobile already...

    I've been uploading everything to Lr Mobile for years. Essentially my catalog is in the cloud, with the full DNGs locally where I need them. I don't need a second copy of them. How would I migrate to the new CC?

    Cannot Shrink Lightroom Mobile Storage on iOS

    I'm using Lr Mobile on iOS from the beginning, upgrading the iPhones every year, and it suddenly swelled inside the 7+, taking 200GB of memory. I've had only one collection marked offline, and doing Clear Cache on it freed up meager 400MB. The Lightroom Photos is the only other collection...

    Importing Catalog with its Previews

    I'm considering a workflow where I import travel photos into MacBook Pro with a temporary catalog, following Julianne Konst's excellent tutorial. One thing which seems missing is whether previews will be imported. I like to build both 1:1 previews and Smart Previews in my master catalog, to...

    Lr Mobile starts a Full Camera Roll Upload after iPhone Upgrade

    I've just upgraded to iPhone 7s from backup. Looking forward to using the 256GB to cache more photos locally! However, Lr Mobile started uploading the whole camera roll. I hope it will not lead to duplicates, but even having to wait for it to do a complete sync is a while. Do you guys see...

    Combining Multiple Mobile Downloads Folders

    Over the years with Lr Mobile, before I was able to specify the Mobile Downloads folder location, I've accumulated multiple folders for my devices in my Lr Desktop catalog. In fact, there are multiple subfolders called the same iPhone name, probably after device upgrades. How do I combine all...

    Sort by Portrait vs Landscape in LR Mobile

    Folks -- if you're like me, you enjoy reclining on your sofa with iPad Air and seeing your amazing pics in great clarity and blazing speed, all properly synced from the desktop via LR Mobile and an efficient process. Now, it presumes meditative flow and ease. One problem is, I have to rotate...

    Star and Flag on two computers via Synced Collections

    I'd love to assign stars and set/unset flag/reject on newly ingested collections on my laptop, while my home desktop hosts the permanent setup. I've read both LR5 and LR6 FAQ book chapters on it, and LR6 doesn't seem to consider a new option of LR Mobile. Here's my setup and proposal. I use a...
