Thank you so much. Perfect way to guide me - I was looking at the wrong MetaData.
I never knew there were TWO.
Your Patience AND Guidance were much appreciated.
Job Done - Images all now 'in order'.
Your patience and Guidance hit levels I have hitherto never encountered...
Sorry to be so exasperatingly stupid. I am actually trying quite hard, but have way too little experience & knowledge - perhaps that is why I am asking Qs and not answering them.
I appear NOT to have tried the 'Metadata - Edit Capture Time' menu.
So that I may try this avenue out, could...
"Should" is the key word. BUT it doesn't, since there is NO Capture Date/Time indicated to be changed.
Clicking on 'Defaults' (in Metatdata) reveals an interesting series of Options, but sadly none add a Capture Date or Time.
What 'other view can I select' as you suggest ............ ...
You are correct. Image taken in Panorama mode on iPhone.
Any way I can recover that date or Insert it Manually or force there to be a specific Date/Time attached to image.
That way, I can at least stick Image in the right place (aka order) in my Album.
Many many Thanks
Am in midst of a major Trip Edit and Sort and have found a few (typically Panorama Images) where the Metadata does not have Capture Time nor Capture Date, so I have nowhere to amend nor alter it, so that the Image will drop into my sequence in Chronological Order.
Apologies if its obvious to...
I gather not a new Issue, but am stumped.
I have 3.660 + Images in a single Folder (on a separate Passport Drive), which I wish to Import to LR 5.7 (Desktop)then Develop etc until Album .
I wish to Import & KEEP them in Chronological Order ('Image Capture' seems the most sensible), but it...
Thanks so much, but incredibly when, rather than hit it with a hammer or do Control, Alt, Delete, I decided to give it one more try.
Bingo - all sweets and IN-order.
i don’t think I did anything differently.
I am loading images (jpeg from a canon DSLR) and some from my Wife's Panasonic MDC LF1.
Mine (1st SShot) are always same size.
Hers (2nd SShot) are mixed as seen from the attached screen shots.
What am I doing wrong or needs to be changed - maybe even a setting in the Panasonic camera...
Having selected an Image that I wish to work on & in 'Develop' mode, each Action seems to head-off automatically/
Temp rockets to + 33 (to name but one and it is not alone)
Exposure to full + 5 Stops
Have I done something amiss or accidentally set-up pre-sets ...
Using LR 5.7 (I...
Thanks. I am exporting the images to a File (Dated Albums, if you will) in a separate Folder (to LR). That is not what I would call an 'app', but that could just be my ignorance. I suspect either way, the Folder is as simplistic as me.
I know how to order exports in LR by Date/Time order...
Currently exporting Images (developed, sorted etc of over 1,250 to an Album) but it is resulting in them loading in what appears to be Image Number order. Sequence in the Album therefore looks daft.
I am trying to keep them in Chronological order (Date & Time) of Image Capture (even if that was...
Johann, maybe it is my terminology.
Let me explain - If IMPORT brings image INTO LR, then de facto - EXPORT takes them out.
Especially when, as I do, I always REMOVE from LR (NOT from Disk) after Exporting.
Why ? - I have encountered issues over images IN LR, but not elsewhere.
I am very sorry to be irksome and to obviously use strange wording.
Let me explain MY Workflow and therein may lie the answers. I do not know them, being as I said at the beginning a "luddite":
1. Connect Camera to PC using USB.
2. Open LR5.
3. Click 'Import' and select my Camera as the...
Crikey - Good Question, but How do I find out ... ?
I just double-click on the image (or File) in the relevant file (by Date or in a Collection), and Bob's your Uncle - there it/they are revealed.
Love to hear/learn more.
When I IMPORT from my Camera or Other Source, I select Capture Order...
The ONLY Software I am using is LR 5.
Exporting (using LR 5 Export facility) is to a separate Data Storage Device (My Passport with no software capability).
The 'albums' expression was used to illustrate that I am collating them together (in a day-by-day sequence, or specific date(s)...
Working with jpegs in LR 5 on Windows 10, if that helps.
Background is that I have quite often changed the Capture Time (or even date) to make the flow of images more like an evolving Story.
This revised 'order' along 'Capture Time' lines, then that 'order' appears to NOT be retained when...
