    Need to sign in everytime now????

    I would also recommend the use of a password manager in your scenario (unable to remember passwords). I am coming towards the end of moving my identities, logins, bank card details, sensitive documents etc. to a password manager. Should have done it years ago (one good thing Covid has done for...

    Keyword confusion

    Hi Jim. That did the trick. Thanks very much for your help. I have to say, not a particularly discoverable feature. As Lightroom has evolved and become more feature rich I can only start to imagine the challenges faced by the UI team. I've been a Lightroom user for a number of years and this...

    Keyword confusion

    Like many others I embarked on a keyword re-organisation project during lockdown. I've run into an "issue" I can't seem to fathom out and I'm a bit confused. You can see my hierarchy in the screenshot below. What I'd like to do is isolate the 279 files listed against the Art keyword. When I...

    sync.lrdata folder

    A little background. I am a long-term motorcycle traveller (left our UK home in June 2014, currently locked down in Argentina) and I keep the bare minimum of data on the laptop. I run Lightroom and its catalogs on the laptop hard drive but all data/photos are on an external SSD and in OneDrive...

    sync.lrdata folder

    I'm currently reviewing my backups and backup strategy. I noticed that I am not backing up the lrdata.sync folder (found in username\AppData\Local\Adobe\Lightroom\Lightroom Catalog) as part of my strategy. I've only recently started using the sync functions. The folder only contains three files...

    Return to thread entry

    Hi Victoria, here's a couple of examples of longer threads where I'm always taken to the first post in the thread regardless of whether I've read the whole thread or not...

    Return to thread entry

    When I read a specific thread that has multiple entries I'm always taken to the first entry in the thread. This is regardless of the fact that I may have already read the first 20 entries. Is it possible to return to the place I left off in a thread the next time I visit the thread? All this...

    Cannot rename folders

    OK, a follow up from me. Following the mail from Cletus I started to explore the folders in Windows Explorer. All affected folders had the same security set so that wasn't the issue. I then wondered if I could rename one of the affected folders in Windows Explorer. Yes I could. I then renamed...

    Cannot rename folders

    Hi Cletus, here's the full path for the folder. I can rename the folder "Fairchild Family" but not the "Douglas one. I cannot rename "Family" but I can rename "Events and Days Out". This is why I couldn't figure it out. Edit: I can change names of subfolders under "Douglas".

    Keyword confusion

    Hi Cletus, thanks for the suggestions. My first port of call was to try and find a keyword that may be triggering the filter. No luck. So I spent some time taking a look at the attributes of the keywords that were applied to the 201 "erroneous" results. I found one that had a synonym the same as...

    Keyword confusion

    I have a catalog of about 45,000 photos and a fairly extensive keyword hierarchy. One keyword I have is "Oilwell". If I browse the keyword hierarchy I can see that I have 7 photos tagged with the keyword Oilwell. If I go to the library filter and go to the "Text" tab and enter the criteria Text...

    Creative cloud desktop app - where's the download?

    Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and subscribed to LR and PS CC. I used the CC desktop app to download and install LR 2015.4 and I'm wondering if the download is cached somewhere on my machine, I certainly can't find it. It's important to me because I'm travelling for the foreseeable future...

    A Travellers Setup For LR 5.3 - advice sought

    Thanks for the input guys, much appreciated ;) Budget constraints have determined that I go with the Yoga i5, 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM. Current thinking is that I'll run the catalog on the internal SSD and store the RAW files on an external SSD. I'll backup RAW files to a 2nd external drive...

    A Travellers Setup For LR 5.3 - advice sought

    Firstly a bit of background information to give some context to my question. My wife and I are embarking on a multi year Round the World trip by motorcycle starting this June. We only have 1 motorcycle so space is limited (understatement). We will use LightRoom 5.3 running on Windows 8.1 as our...
