    Library module How do you hide child keyword folders

    Okay, that makes sense. I was wondering if there was something more direct I could do right from the keywording module like putting a minus sign in front of folders to be excluded. Thanks.

    I have images that i imported into Lr back in 2010 using whatever was the current version of Lr was back then. At the time I only performed only very basic edits and upon reviewing them now i know i could do much better now with the new tools in Lr CC. I thought that when Lr updated the...

    "Hide Lightroom" Command is Grayed Out

    On my macpro desktop running el capitan version 10.11.6 and using Lightroom 6 perpetual I can click on "Lightroom" in the menu bar and choose "Hide Lightroom " from the drop down menu. On my macbook running high sierra 10.13.6 that command is often, but not always, grayed out.

    Survey View, How to unlink pick and reject flags so they don't label entire survey with one click

    while in survey view i understand that clicking the x on the bottom right of an image removes it from the survey and the remaining images resize to fill the space. my question concerns the pick and reject flags on the bottom left below the image. it used to be that when i picked or rejected...

    How to export a slideshow (slide show) that will play as a continuous loop?

    I would like to export a silent slideshow of stills and video clips that I can run in my office as a continuous loop. I would prefer to put it on a flash drive or dvd rather to run it from lightroom. Is anyone aware if any of the output formats are amenable to that or software that will...

    Using LR6 on two Computers

    On a desktop mac at home I started editing images in LR6 that I have stored on an internal drive. I am traveling and want to continue working with images in that folder so I exported that folder "export as catalog" to a external drive. I have LR6 installed on my MacBook and want to continue...

    How do you create a collection of just one person?

    I would like to create a slideshow for a particular individual. Photos can have other individuals in them but every photo should also include this one person. I have clicked the face icon in the task bar and have confirmed the vast majority of faces in multiple folders so Lr seems to...

    How do I Sync white balance for before and after images?

    Thank you, They grey card solution became obvious to me as I wrote the question but I was not aware that it would not work with jpgs so thank you for that. The ring light is another excellent suggestion, however, I have the rooms all stocked with point and shoots which means a camera upgrade...

    How do I Sync white balance for before and after images?

    I am a dermatologist and we take before and after photos of patients. The after pictures often have a different hue due to white balance. I haven't had much success playing with the sliders in the basic panel and haven't figured out if I can view both images side by side like you can in the...

    Are updates available for stand alone Lr 6.0?

    I don't use photoshop so I upgraded from 5.0 to the stand alone 6.0 but am disappointed not to see "de haze". There doesn't seem to be an update unless i'm looking in the wrong places. Is Adobe no longer going to supply updates unless you become a subscriber? Does anyone have a good work...

    Master Catalog does not update

    Thank you Johan. I understand about the Martin pdfs and PP presentation however 201305 Provider Portraits had been previously imported (see it under "Dermatology" on the latest Lr screenshot). and are greyed out when I try to import them a second time. Maybe it was a duplicate folder. I am...

    Master Catalog does not update

    Assuming that all file and folder movements are performed through lightroom I would expect the directories to be identical. also I am concerned about the October date for when the catalog was last used. What does that mean? i've opened lightroom many times since then. thanks

    Master Catalog does not update

    Thank you Tim. What is troubling to me is that when I move files within lightroom they are not showing up that way when I look at the hard drive outside of Lr. I would think that I would have a bunch of ? marks indicating that Lr can't find the moved photos but I don't

    Master Catalog does not update

    I consolidated folders and did general cleanup to folder structures inside of Lightroom however when I look at the folder structure directly on the hard drive outside of Lr the changes are not there. Even more curious is the fact that it looks like I haven't used that catalog in a few months...

    Using Gmail to send email from Lr when you have 2 step verification enabled. The reason I couldn't validate gmail is because I had 2 step verification turned on. Go to support.google .com and find this page: Sign in using App Passwords An App password is a 16-digit passcode that gives an...

    New Backup Location does not include Lightroom Presets

    Thank you for such a thorough and thoughtful explanation. My issue was that I was failing to grasp that the master catalog and backup are 2 distinct entities and not to be used interchangeably and as a result my master and backup were being stored in the same location. The missing photos (only...

    New Backup Location does not include Lightroom Presets

    Thank you all, but I still think I'm doing something wrong here. I changed Backup location to a new drive called HD3 and named the folder "Lightroom Exit backup" I went ahead and opened and closed the program a few times and now the screenshots look like this with the catalog listed twice
