    Reloading Windows and Lightroom on new SSD and Images on a new 2nd SSD

    I built a top-end gaming rig 3 years ago to serve as my photography studio PC and am updating it this weekend with a new powerful Intel i9 10900K chip, Asus Hero 12 Motherboard, 64 GB Corsair 3600 Ram, and a new boot chip - the Seagate 2TB Firecuda 510 M.2 SSD. That will be my new boot drive...

    The Up-Down Slider Bar to the Far right in the Develop Module

    I'm a travel photographer and I shoot a lot. I edit Fuji RAF raw files (both MF and APSC) in LR constantly on the road and at home. At home I have a great pro 32 inch 4k photo editing monitor and life is good when you are on that beautiful screen with Adobe LR and a powerful gaming PC. But...

    Single Edit Applied to Large Number of Images

    I am embarrassed to ask this because it is basic and I am a very experienced LR user. I am a travel photographer and edit on the road nightly on my laptop. When I return home I copy the folder (which is full of hundreds or thousands of Fuji RAF files with their Sidecar Files) of that trip...

    Been a While Since I've Been On Here - Many Years of LR Daily Use, Thanks to You!

    Wow. It has been years (I think) since I was on the Lightroom Forum. I lost the link, just Googled it and hit this Lightroom Queen Forum. I guess the name changed. I remember that the Lightroom Queen and Jim W. helped me 8 years ago when I was working to learn LR. They were amazing, and I...

    Changing to a new PC after many years....

    I am building a new high-end 4K gaming rig (PC) that I will also use as my base studio for LR. On my current PC that I have been using for the last few years is my one catalog that links to over two TB of RAW images in a simple pictures folder that has hundreds of subfolders. Everything is...

    Using SP 4 (Laptop) on the Road - Exporting back to Master Catalog on Base Studio PC

    LR Gurus, I finally paid too much for the MS Surface Pro 4 (fully loaded with i7 6th Generation Skylake Processor and 16 GB RAM). It runs LR and PS faster than my 2 year old desktop on Windows 10. Kills it. So now I have a very light, portable LR road solution that is the size of a large...

    LR CC 2015 2.1 -- Bad Job Adobe

    Sorry -- I've been off-line on this great forum for a while so have not followed any problems posted earlier. I am a daily user of LR. Love the program. Addicted in fact. I was horrified and astoundingly disappointed when I loaded CC 2015 2 and immediately was confronted with the simplistic...

    Windows 10 Question on their Irritating "Photos" App - -Uninstall it?

    Gurus -- Any thoughts on this annoying "Photos" App we all get in Windows 10? Here is my concern. Undirected by me, that Photo app live tile in the start area started flipping through and displaying a few folders of JPEGs that I had for various reasons exported from LR and kept in folders. I...

    CC 2015 & LR 6 Utilize GPU in Dev Module. Makes me Slower

    I was excited to hear that the latest LR (CC 2015 & 6) for the first time has the ability to use the GPU in the Development Module. OpenGL has to be the latest so updating the driver is key, and I did that Day 1. I followed the advice on this forum and checked "Use Graphics Processor" in the...

    Navigating across iamge While in Adjustment Brush or Spot Reoval Brush

    I'm almost embarrassed to ask this because I'm wasting gurus' time with some simple question that I should already know, but for years while I'm in a RAW file do some basic developing, I zoom in and use the adjustment brush or healing brushes, etc., but then I need to navigate to a different...

    Bothersome Export Problem for the Past 4 Years

    For the past 4 to 5 years, and through several versions of LR, whenever I export a developed RAW as a small JPEG for email or posting I always get the error message, "Unable to Export. Internal error has occurred. Win 32 API Error 2. The system cannot find the file specified when calling...

    Am I Missing the Boat? I Still Rely on Pure Folders

    I am not a professional photographer but am as good or better (or at least more experienced) than many of the people who make that claim. I have been a photo enthusiast for 40 years and it is now my absolute main hobby that I am very devoted to and passionate about. I love LR. I love the...

    Switching LR use to Laptop for 5 Month Trip

    I do all my work on a home high-end very fast PC with a 32 inch screen, 32GB of RAM, 3 TB drive and killer graphics card. So I never experience LR performance issues that other people complain about constantly. I have about 2.5 TB of a lifetime of images all located on the internal drive and...

    Major LR Flaw. Will Not Filter out JPEGs on Import Costing Many Hours of Extra Work.

    I just returned from a trip in Argentina and Brazil. When shooting while traveling these days I leave the big L Lenses and 5DIII at home and carry the amazing Fuji XT-1 and three small XF Lenses. Anyway, that is another story, but I just returned with seven full 32 GB cards full of images. For...

    Addicted to LR -- Too Much Camera Power -- Don't Need It

    I went to Chile recently and shot 2000 RAWs with a 7D and 10-22 EFs of every landscape imaginable and came back and spent 3 months developing every one of them in LR. I'm going to Ecuador next month and will do the same thing, except I just gave my 7D to my son and bought a 5DIII with three...

    Camera Calibration

    I have a new Canon 5D Mark III and in LR 4.3 Camera Calibration it only lists Adobe Standard, along with Camera Standard / Faithful / Landscape / Portrait and Neutral. It does not say Canon 5D Mk III, so how do I know it has the right Camera Profiles loaded and I'm not just using some default...

    Help -- Somehow Lost 300 Development Settings and Am Not a Rookie

    :blush: When I first started using LR 18 months ago, I lost the development settings in an entire Collection of 800 files (a Spain Trip) because I did something stupid like select all photos and synch them all with an undeveloped file, or something similar to that. It created quite a long...

    LR vs. PS and TIFF vs. DNG (Scanning Slides and Negatives)

    LR vs. PS and TIFF vs. DNG: I saw postings in several categories that talked about usingLR to edit TIFF files that have been scanned from old slides and negatives. Forexample, Victoria is scanning thousandsof slides as am I. For 13 years I havebeen slowly and deliberately scanning over...

    Delete Commands Confusing

    I know I'm sounding like a LR Rookie here, and I understand the basics of how LR works, but I'm confused on the various delete commands..... I know how to remove a photo from the Collection and the Catalog. LR Help does not explain the "Delete Rejected Photos" command, and in my mind, the...

    LR 4 Major Problem

    I installed LR 4 yesterday which imported all of my LR3 Collections into LR4 -- about 5,000 photos in several Collections in one Catalouge. (I've only been shooting RAW for less than a year.) I had developed all of those thousands of shots in LR3 over the past year and had them where I wanted...

    Lightroom Testimonial -- A RAW Journey from Photoshop

    I just finished a major LR project and 3-month self-study training session to learn the program at what I hope is an expert level. I have used Photoshop for over 12 years and consider myself an expert (to some degree) using that fantastic software to improve scanned TIFF files from film. In...

    Confusing Folder Structure

    I'm new to Lightroom but very expert at Photoshop. As a side note, for 10 years I have been scanning my collection of 50,000 Kodacrome slides to TIFF files and working them hard in Photoshop, so I have over 400 folders under "My Picures" full of 45 MB TIFF files. No need to use Lightroom for...
