    Historically I have used Freidl's publish to a disk plugin based on smart collections to manage images which are synced to OneDrive and then picked up by digital picture frames. I have each frame looking for in specific folders. How are people pushing images to digital picture frames with Cloudy?

    Albums vs Collections

    Ok, after playing in Lr for a couple days again. Ignoring my whole processing workflow based on smart collections. I have spent the last couple days getting my head all twisted around the collections/albums mapping and what that would mean. I kind of felt like I was losing the whole image...

    Family photos, how do I tackle multiple people and multiple generations?

    So my wife, parents, in laws... Have all decided that we should build out a family photo system that can be handed down more easily than a file cabinet of a jumble of images or in OneDrive/Apple Photos/Google Drive... Guess who was assigned the task to figure it out? Since we are spread over...

    Updating all images with lens correction and process version

    Has anyone tried to do a bulk update of all images to a new process version? And also enable auto application of lens corrections (remove chromatic aberrations and enable profile corrections) if lens is known? Going through each image one at a time would be rather painful. (They show up in...

    Smartworkflow and keyword hierarchy

    Short version: The two largest gaps for me are workflow and keyword hierarchy. Has anyone found a way around these limitations? Long Version: I have played around some with LightRoom CC. I find the editing capabilities not as good, and actually tougher to use. However, they do not require a...

    Catalogs Continuity and passing images on by generation

    I put this sunder the desktop since I happen to use the Classic version. However, the basic question applies. Has anyone thought about family level catalogs and passing on to other generations? e.g. My parents have gone digital, even my grandmother at a 101 has gone digital. We now share images...

    Adobe Auto-Update

    After a few "bad" updates (the redesigned import of 6 being the most memorable); or more recently the backup zip problem which only seems a few months ago (I know it was longer). I have got into the habit of waiting before installing a new release from Adobe. On the latest update, Adobe now...

    Searching for "portrait" images

    Here is a new one, and not one I considered when setting up my catalog. I have setup an export of images for my grandmother, however she asked to further refine them to ones which are "close ups", e.g. portrait style. I have played around with focal range, but that does not seem to give good...

    Library module Revert from DNG back to raw/jpeg

    The primary reason I converted from raw/jpeg to DNG was because of the hash to help prevent bit-rot. Now that is no longer needed, I want to undo the DNG conversion. I still have the original files, for the moment in separate directories., but I will code a something to pair up the DNG and...

    Running Lr in the cloud....

    Over the weekend I was playing around with both Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services for another company I and few others are starting. I then had the idea, would running Lr in a virtual terminal work? You could provision a super fast workstation and only pay when you turn it on/off. For the...

    Making copyright depend on other data during import

    As I remind myself to update the copyright meta-data preset, I am now wondering why Adobe has never implemented any variable substitution on import. Is this a feature others would use?

    Location Data

    I have found that the address is stored in the sub-location field. So effectively, you get Country, State/Province, City, Address. Where do people store such fields as "Grandparents house", "Vacation Home", "Mt. Sutton Ski Resort", "Disney" Or does this end up in keywords?
