    LR version's file names

    Sorry for the delay acknowledging your assistance; life sometimes intrudes... The info for the 2-2-2 has resolved one of LR's little mysteries for me. Thanks again.

    LR version's file names

    Recently I had to restore my catalog, which got me looking at my back-up process. Attached screen shot shows what I think is all the important "stuff." I don't trust my "knowledge" (or more precisely my lack thereof) since experience has proven I sometimes make very dumb mistakes. If I'm...

    renaming files

    Thanks for the info. Yes, the error message was "missing file." So now I know... If only I knew how I changed the file names.

    renaming files

    I just discover that somehow (I am still baffled how) the file names on my hard drive & LR are different. I know they matched at one time since the empty cells still show the various VCs & color labels. So renaming should be easy -- library & rename… well not my day. Attempting to rename, I...

    Any method to pull files that are NOT virtual copies from a group?

    Johan, Thank you very much for the response. It was the key I would have almost certainly not have found on my own. It's not direct, but it does work. Thanks again. FYI for anyone who views this, what I did: created smart collection via has adjustments...is false keyword...contains words...

    Any method to pull files that are NOT virtual copies from a group?

    Thank you for the response, but again I seem to have not been clear in my request, for which I apologize. (Once I did some investigation, I found the VC attribute you mention. ) I will try again to state my request... From a grouping that includes both photos that remain unprocessed &...

    Any method to pull files that are NOT virtual copies from a group?

    Early on I added keywords to all appropriate files, whether I worked on them via VCs or not. It's now dawning on me that, when reviewing types of images, all I really want to see are the VCs that I worked on, not the many more numerous images that I chose to not process. I see that I can...

    backup file not found in previous location

    Hal, Thank you. When I looked at the file location from this, I discovered that a new backup folder had been created as a sub-folder. Once I sorted that, I trust all will be well. Thanks again.

    backup file not found in previous location

    Per my previous 'compact cell info' post, I had to access my back-up file to retrieve all the LR files, virtual copies, etc. Now I just discovered that the backup file is not appearing where it has always been located before. The 2020-11-22 2322 was, as dated, done two days ago & is the...

    backup file not going to previous location...?

    Per my previous 'compact cell info' post, I had to access my back-up file to retrieve all the LR files, virtual copies, etc. Now I just discovered that the backup file is not appearing where it has always been located before. The 2020-11-22 2322 was, as dated, done two days ago & is the...

    Can't find back-up file

    Per my previous 'compact cell info' post, I had to access my back-up file to retrieve all the LR files, virtual copies, etc. Now I just discovered that the backup file is not appearing where it has always been located before. The 2020-11-22 2322 was, as dated, done two days ago & is the...

    compact cell info

    Jim, Thanks for the info, but... The 'but' comes from my not being exactly clear in my question, not your answer. I should have said to have both the file name & extension displayed. I apologize for the lack of clarity. I do have both the top & bottom labels checked. From the dropdown...

    compact cell info

    After a short power outage literally 1ish second after a back-up completed, when starting LR again, I had the proverbial cupboard was bare. LR thought I was starting from scratch; no photos were imported. I accessed the back-up file & LR restored my tens of thousands previous work. That is a...

    only one specific keyword, not all, does not export

    In spite of my 'the sky is falling,' it's so simple. I never noticed the 'include on export' box with the keywords; I had several that were unchecked. I do appreciate the responses. Thank you.

    only one specific keyword, not all, does not export

    I've been exporting selected processed VCs as TIFs to make it easier for my kids at some point to sort through my obsession (not theirs, but that's ok.) I've been including the tags, & I just noticed that one of the keywords (faces) is not included in the TIF files. All the other keywords that...

    Thanks for the quick & informative enough (so as to not cause more confusion) response.

    exporting files

    While I've been scrupulous backing up the LR catalog & the original imports, I've been concerned that the work I've put into the VCs seems thin; maybe I worry too much. I'm still using the stand-alone LR6, so there's no cloud backup involved. I'm about to start culling my way too many adjusted...

    saving metadata to file

    Hello LR folks, While I've been very good backing up my original photo files & LR catalog, I have not been saving the metadata when I develop them. I've decided finally to export at full size as back up for my thousands of developed virtual copies. (For any who care for my motiviation to do...

    can't add keywords

    Operating System: Windows 7 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):6.6.1 While for a very long time, I was diligent with keywording, for quite awhile I have not. Just tried to add some, & LR is not applying them. When I do add one i(clicking on the keyword), the check mark shows...

    well, not really printing, but how to export with a pre-set

    I've never previously wanted to export a file with a pre-set. What I've exported is what I've wanted. What I'm trying to accomplish is to lighten a batch of photos a stop or two for a TV monitor I know runs dark. Is there a method to do this within LR without adding an external pre-set, or is...

    Reversing a negative image...

    While not directly relevant to the thread, the inverted curve allows an easy "effect" of trees, etc silhouetted against a bald sky to become evenly flash-lit night scenes.

    to remove a photo from the survey view

    Thank you all for your responses. For the record, Jim Wilde did get my question correctly, but I had already assumed that Johan Elzenga's solution would be the path of the least resistance. & I will try to be more precise for any future requests.
