    Can this be achieved?

    You can create virtual copies and apply a preset to each VC. So, you will have different images from the same original and you will be able to compare them side by side. This is a manual process, I don't know if a script doing this does exist.

    Also, since the customer is viewing with it's own screen and computer (PC, tablet or phone) you can almost be sure he won't sse the image exactly as you see it on your screen. The customer's screen may not be correctly calibrated, or he might not be viewing the photo via a color managed...

    C Driving full

    Thanks for raising this point. I agree with you and I forgot to mention that moving the temp folder should only done on an internal drive, not on an external drive.

    C Driving full

    To add to the previous comments, you can mode the location of the temporary folder outside of the C partition : 1. In a partion other than C, create a folder for temporya files (call it, say, "D:\Temp") 2. In the search field of the task bar, enter SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe and validate. 3...

    Printing issues

    If your monitor is calibrated, did you try to see your image in LR using soft-proofing ? If so, how does it look like ? This could help determine what are the real colors stored in the file and if the problem is in the file or in the printing. Also, when printing from LR using the ICC profile...

    Semi OT Question re File path on Windows

    It's very usefull if your store your database and photos on an external drive to use it with different computers. On windows, this avoid to have to deal with the drive letter from one computer to the other. Opening the catalog is enough to have LR find the files, whatever the letter the extrenal...

    Semi OT Question re File path on Windows

    absolutePath contains a Drive letter (e.g. "C:\) when created in a Windows environment. Only if the partition is accessed via a letter. If the partition is mounted in a folder, then it's the mount path (via the folder) that is stored.

To save as an import preset, go down to the bottom of the import window, rhere is a bowx named "Import...

    Organising photos...

    Since you are used to store by date, continue, it's fine. I've been used to do this way since my first negative in the 60s. Each negative is identified by the date of the first photo and complted with a small description (year, event, location and people). Recently, Ive been asked to print...

    Color shift during exporting

    The windows Photo Viewer (the viewer included in Windows 7) is color managed and is still present in Windows 10 although not activated. There is an easy step to activate it in Windows 10. Why the Windows 10 photo application is not color managed is beyond my understanding...

    Color shift during exporting

    JPeg have color coded with 8 bits, while Tif can have color coded with 16 bits. This more precise color coding in Tif might lead to a small difference when the image is displayed.

    Import Destination

    I agree with Cletus. Use collection and add keywords which travel well to other software. I let LR store the files (the container, a computer thing) in folders organized by date (year/date) and I often add a small description text after the date. As a photograph, I want to manage images, not...

    How to keep crop overlay on an image to export

    I know no way to add the grid lines on an image. However, if it's for a course, why not take a screen shot of the image with the overlay ?

    Large previews folder

    One thing you can do to reduce (a bit) the size of the previews folder is to remove it and ask LR to regenerate all previews. But this folder will continue to grow as soon as you will add new photos to the catalog.

    Exporting Collections and Collection sets to a new LR catalog

    This problem is caused by the 2 fields "lc_name" and "name" of the first record of the table AgLibraryKeyword being set to a value instead of null. This value is what you see as ghost keyword. This first record is somehow the root of the keywords hierarchy and is not supposed to be visible...

    A keyword bug?

    This looks like the old "Ghost keyword" problem that I explained here. This bug has been fixed in the recent LR version, however you may still have to fix the corruption in the database. If you don't know how to fix the DB, send a PM to me I'll do it for you.

    Lightroom 6 performance

    Moving the catalog to the SSD should greatly improve the performance. If you have an antivirus, I also suggest to remove the catalog file, the preview folder and the Camera Raw cache folder from the real time scan of the antivirus.

    Focal Length Incorrect In Metadata

    Focal length is recorded in the file by the camera in the EXIF data. LR reads the exif data in the file and dispalys them. There is no way to tell LR to convert the value. the camera has recorded. May be an option in your camera allows to change the way focal length is recorded...

    Noise/Artifacts - is there anything I can do?

    These artifacts lokks like a result of the jpeg compression. I think the compression level is too high. I don't know I-Phone, but there might be a pameters in the camera for the jpeg called something like "compression level" or "quality level". If so, try to change it to a lower compression or...

    How to determine which photos need to denoise?

    Paul-DS256, you'r right. The noise is a parasit signall added by the electronic itself. To achieve ISO higher than the default sensor value (usually around 100, although never communicated by the constructors), the electric signal from the sensor is amplified. This amplification applies to the...
