    Changed metadata

    Thanks Johan!

    Changed metadata

    Occasionally, for no apparent reason, to me at least, I get the message, "Metadata for this photo has been changed by both Lightroom and another application. Should Lightroom import settings from disk or overwrite disk settings with those from the catalog?" There is no other obvious application...

    Sync Paused

    Thanks but I'm wondering why or what it was syncing in the first place?

    Sync Paused

    Not a problem, just curious. I import by wire from a card reader. I get a message "Sync Paused". I wonder why? I'm not doing anything in the cloud. I'm not using cloud storage at all except for a few unrelated collections I have synced to a phone app.

    Aspect ratio on imported micro four thirds RAW files

    Fair enough. It looks like movies is where many of us are heading.

    Large previews folder

    Could do but as suggested above, I've removed it from the backup list. The backup runs much faster now which was the main issue.

    Large previews folder

    It's not the 1:1 previews that's the problem. They supposedly get deleted automatically after whatever number of days one has set in Catalog Settings. I presume all the other older stuff in the previews folder are smaller previews created by LR.

    Aspect ratio on imported micro four thirds RAW files

    You have your reasons for doing what you are doing and I won't argue with that but as Denis implied above, you are wasting a valuable part of an already small sensor. I'm also a m4/3 shooter. At first I found the 4:3 format a bit strange and didn't know what to do with that extra sky and...

    Large previews folder

    My preview folder has grown to a huge size despite setting 1:1 previews deleted after 30 days. It's causing long backup delays. Looking into the folder, I see there are some previews years old. Is it safe to simply delete them? What is a good maintenance strategy for the previews folder?

    Brilliant! I'll do it. Thank!

    LR Defaults

    I've been using LR since LR2. Over that time I've changed settings occasionally for reasons I can no longer remember. With every update my settings have been carried over. Some may no longer be appropriate with the latest versions. I'm wary of doing a wholesale reset lest I inadvertently...

    Issues using only one single folder?

    Agreed. Alternatively you could categorise by genre or something else but that can be done in keywording. I much prefer the automatic folders by date. Also, whenever you wish to "synchronise folders" to check for loose ends etc. you'll have no alternative but to do your entire collection at once.

    Stacking

    I haven't used stacking for a while but I seem to recall the stacked image had a little square in the top left showing the number in the stack. Mine now shows just two faint parallel lines either side. Is there a toggle to switch the box on somewhere? I'd like the stacking indicator to be...

    20GB?

    It took a while but now that I've worked it out, it's amasingly useful.

    20GB?

    On the Australian Adobe site they are offering four plans: All Apps - AUD$76.99/m Photography - AUD$14.29/m - Lr + Ps Photoshop - AUD$29.99/m - Ps + Fresco Lightroom Plan with 1TB - $14.29/m But never mind, I have my answer. I guess it's just local market strategy.

    20GB?

    In my LrC deal (in Australia), I got access to a whole lot of other apps including Ps. That's curious because Ps alone costs more. Is this this just a temporary teaser? Even more curious is that I also got 20GB of storage. Does anyone know what it's for? Does anyone use it and if so how...

    Not Responding

    I had an issue the last couple days but not quite the same. All modules worked fine except the import module. It was terribly slow and kept crashing. This seemed to occur after I installed two recent Win 10 updates, KB4601319 and KB4598481. On uninstalling the first one, the problem was...

    Adobe plan clarification

    Yep, Aussie dollars.

    Adobe plan clarification

    I'm thinking of biting the bullet and upgrade from LR6 to LR Classic however I find Adobe's plans a little confusing. I really want only LR Classic but the only plan they offer seems to include Photoshop, LR and LR Classic + 20GB for $14.29/m. Is that the only way to get LR Classic?

    LR6 with LR Classic

    By "data set" I meant one's library of image files excluding the catalogue but let's not quibble. I get the picture. Thanks guys. This thread may be closed

    LR6 with LR Classic

    Thanks John. This is what I was hoping. Of course it's not ideal but it's a bit of reassurance if all goes pear shaped with one or the other of the apps. It does mean writing to XMP but I've recently done just that for my entire catalogue anyway. After a decade of near faultless operation...

    LR6 with LR Classic

    I have no intension of using both. It's just that I'm overly cautious and like to know what fall-backs I have.

    LR6 with LR Classic

    Is it possible to use LR6 and LR Classic interchangeably on the same data set? Is so, if edits are written to XMP, will LR Classic read the edits of LR6 and vice versa given that LR6 does not have as much functionality?
