Alternative: use your phone to capture 1/more reference pics.
I believe it also then captures the GPS coordinates and then use that to manually add the coords to your 5D photos in LR.
Not sure though if all phones capture GPS coords but give it a try.
Hi Canon40, welcome to LRF.
Sounds like a potential disaster problem you may be introducing for yourself but you seem to understand and want to fix it :-)
So given the above (alas very little info to go on) the ideal end situation would be to have 1 EHD with ALL photos and 1 LR catalog and use...
You need to select the Import function in LR (File, Import photos videos), find the folder that's holding your images and select ADD on the assumption that the images are already in the correct folder on your mac...
Jim, yup restarted the machine, reset all preferences I could find, restarted again but no joy so far. Not that I really want those templates atm but quite liked the grid one. Shame LR6 doesn't seem as stable as the previous x.0 versions.
Will keep an eye on it though.
Was having a look see at the various new web templates in LR6 (perpetual).
I had 20 pics in the Library Quick collection to play around with, 1 selected.
In web module selected “Use all filmstrip photos” together with either of the 3 GRID gallery templates.
The template loads but no...
Bob, the way I read your rating it seems that you're possibly wasting 1star and 2 star ratings as you mention that they're most likely not to be processed further, so no need to 'star' them.
tbh I barely make use of stars.
Maybe use 1 = to develop 2 = developed. 3-5 good,better, best of show.
A Google search brought up a number of tools for Windows that may do the job.
Whether these do the job or not I have no idea.
This plug in allows you to only change the Date original and not mess with the Date digitised unless you choose otherwise.
I too have digitised 1000s of slides and recently also added Camera and Lens model and ISO info using...
Yes, indeed you can :D
Library module, metadata, edit capture time. I've done the same with all my scanned slides and negatives. For the really old stuff where I have no clue of the exact date I just pick 01-Jan-yyyy 00:00:00.
Better than having date digitised 08 May 2015.
In Library go in to single view of a pic. Press the 'face' button. Drag a box around the face(s) in your pic and type in the name. Repeat for the other pics.
From what I've read so far here is your can't rerun the face recognition tool.
Alex I tried it on just 1 photo and manually typed in the start number 34567 and yes it changes it to 34,567 (I suspect you got your comma wrong in your post)
I pressed ok and it added 34567 as filename. I think it's just a display "issue" as it does NOT insert a comma in the filename.
John, I threw 3 pics in the quick collection to try out and then went in to survey mode to reject all, one by one - and that worked.
Then I reset the flag to none and changed the mini slider (bottom right corner) where you see Sync/Sync Settings buttons (right panel) to "UP" which changes the...
I'm just wondering Robert why you would need to take it that far though. To me it sounds like overkill on keywording for Annie. (Given above example). Do you really need to change her keyword every time she marries/divorces? Surely you would be able to find Annie regardless of her current...
I had, prior to the face recognition, a number of photos keyworded and put in to a hierarchy.
PEOPLE/FRIENDS (tom dick harry)
PEOPLE/FAMILY (brother, dad, mum)
PEOPLE/FAMILY_EXTENDED (auntie, uncle)
PEOPLE/WORK (Mr X, Mr Y, Mr Z)
Then I ran the LR6 Face program and added Tom A, Dick B and...
For your consideration...
Another reason for not importing from camera directly is that you're also using up your camera battery charge - who's to say it is fully charged when you start the transfer. Scary IMHO. :D
Using a good (USB3) card reader plugged in to you computer is safer and...
Just an observation - there is no 1 best way to organise photos.
A wedding photographer might choose to do it by wedding e.g Bloggs Joe & Jane
A street photographer that goes out daily in his neighbourhood may choose to use yyyy-mm-dd
Another one may decide to do it by (paid) job/project
Hi Perri, welcome to LR forum.
I don't think its possible to actually rename an EHD in LR. You can certainly rename folders and photos in LR.
Now if IIRC when you click on the ? folder (highest level possible) LR will mention it cannot find the actual photo and gives you the option to go and...
Victoria, thx again for posting that UK website on your blog. I really like adobe products (LR & Ps) but I got really frustrated with them when trying to find the standalone version of LR. First of I logged in and only saw LR CC, LR CC, LR CC, LR CC, LR CC, LR CC, LR CC bla bla. When I finally...
To better understand what it currently looks like can you share some images of your finder folder structure where you have you photos incl the folder where you copied the pics to (the destination folder as you called it)
Also post a screenshot of your LR folder structure and lets see if we can...
