    Moving LR Image Folders - not Catalog - to New External hard Drive

    Hello all - My 2TB external hard drive is finally full, and I need to move my LR folders to a new 5TB external hard drive. My LR Catalog now resides on my MacBook Pro SSD, which is where I want it to stay. However, I prefer to keep my photos organized on separate external hard drives, hence...

    Android/Samsung Galaxy S10+ Users -

    I have somehow broken the glass cover over the rear lens on my Samsung Galaxy S10+ phone. There is a distinct lack of sharpness in my images, hence my description of the broken bit as a 'lens.' I'm curious if other Samsung owners have ever dealt with this. Also, is it repairable? or, am I...

    Calling All Mac Gurus...

    I have a new MacBook Pro 16", fully current and updated. How can I remove the 'Guest User' option/account which shows on the login screen? The options for the Guest user are all unchecked/turned off. The 'Find My Mac' option is unchecked/turned off. The 'minus' symbol to remove/delete the Guest...

    Moving to a New Computer...

    I'm setting up a new MacBook Pro this upcoming weekend. My Lightroom catalog resides entirely on an external HD. Accordingly, I'm working under the presumption the 'move' will be little more than downloading Lightroom (and other Adobe apps in my subscription) to the new machine; once that's...

    The Inevitable is Upon Me...

    Sort of... The latest Mac OS Big Sur update was the final nail in my coffin of realization that I need to update my 2015 MacBook Pro. Yes, shutting off the GPU allowed LRc to function normally, etc., but there's more to it. I'm doing a good bit more video work these days, and with 4K use now...

    Mac OS Big Sur 11.1 Update...

    :eek: Is pretty much all I have to say about this - roughly 18 hours in, and I'm about .26 gigabytes from the download finishing...the install hasn't even begun. Apparently, this is not an uncommon thing with this particular update, and based on what I've seen in the various Mac forums, it...

    A Couple of Random Questions...

    Hello all - First question: for Instagram users - are you seeing your own posts? I post an image to Instagram, it shows when the post is made, and it shows in my feed, but it doesn't show on the platform's front page. However, it is visible to other users on the platform, as posts receive...

    A Curious Question...

    ...to which I saw nothing posted in a forum search... How often do you backup your LrC catalog when exiting the software? Daily? Weekly? Monthly? Every time you close LR? As I said, only a curiosity. And in case you;re wondering, I've been doing a daily backup, but am thinking of shifting to...

    Macbook Pro Users...Anyone Had This Issue??

    My MacBook Pro 15" SD card reader will read standard SD cards from my cameras (FujiFilm X100F, Canon 6D Mark II, Canon G7X Mark II, etc.) with no issues, but is now having a lot of difficulty with Micro SD Cards. I tried five different SD Card adapters before the micro SD card mounted and read...

    Cloud Backup/Storage Services - What do You Use?

    I'm curious which services people are using for their cloud backup and storage...and what are the services used for? I've been using Amazon (as a Prime member, it's free and unlimited) but Amazon is known for sudden and inexplicable policy changes, so...what else is there? And, what do you guys...

    Problem with PS CC 2020 Healing Brush Tool...

    After the recent upgrades, the healing brush in PS is leaving black circles when applied to a selected area of an image. Tool reset isn't working, nor are changes to settings, etc. The only 'fix' I've found is to constantly close PS, then reopen it. Anyone else seeing this? Or, have a fix??

    Possible to change slider default settings??

    Hello all, I'm having a difficult time with the Exposure slider in LR Mobile. With every other slider in the app - Highlights, Shadows, Clarity, Saturation, Temp, and so on - I can make very precise adjustments. But with the exposure slider, it's all over the place. For example, if I want to...

    I Fear I Have Created a Disaster...

    So...in a fit of organization, I changed the name of the portable HD on which my LR Catalog is based to make it correspond with the HD's I use for my back-up. Unfortunately, I only came to realize the consequences of this decision when I received the dreaded '?' and '!' on every folder and...

    Feeling the Need to Reorganize...

    ...the question is, what's the best way to go about it. My reason for this is, effective January 2020, I will be greatly reducing the work I create for others and greatly increasing the work I do for myself. Hopefully. The issue is, my OCD personality traits want for me to keep everything...

    Lightroom Mobile (Android) Non-Stop Notifications

    Hello all, For LR on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S10+), I get non-stop notifications stating 'Import Complete' (or something to that effect) after adding an image to LR. By non-stop, I mean the notification will appear for two or three days after importing the image, and clearing the...

    LR Mobile App for Android Question...

    I've just started using the LR Mobile App on my Samsung Galaxy S10+ phone, after using Snapseed exclusively for a couple of years. I like it, there's infinitely more control over the images, etc., but...I cannot see the numerical values when I make adjustments using the sliders...the field just...

    Possible Bug in Latest LR CC Update?

    Hello all: I've noticed since the most recent LR CC update the 'Edit in Photoshop CC' operation isn't working so smoothly. About 50% of the time, when I go to move from LR to PS, the image doesn't move though PS will open. If I close PS and then right click on my LR image and choose the 'Edit...

    Importing Old Files Already Worked in Adobe Camera Raw...

    Hello all - I am starting a project where I will be re-editing older images in LR, a majority of which have already been worked in older versions of Adobe Camera Raw and PhotoShop. Most - or really, all - of these edits need to be redone . (My skill set has vastly improved since doing them...

    Slider Adjustments in LR?

    Hello all, Is there a way to set adjustment parameters in LR for the exposure slider when using the arrow keys to move the slider? Or, to move the slider manually in increments of +/-1, as the contrast, clarity, etc., sliders do? The exposure slider default seems to be +/-5 for manual movement...

    Exporting from LR...

    Hi all, For years, and for a variety of reasons, I have been editing in LR and finishing in PS. Finishing is mainly adding the watermark and resizing the image, then saving, etc. A couple of things are happening, which I'm not understanding. In the past, once I finished in LR, the image was...

    This is likely an elemental question, but...

    ...is there a way to set LR to open on a current Collection or Folder, as opposed to the beginning of the entire catalog? If there is, I'm not seeing it. I would personally find it more advantageous to see my current files on opening as opposed to images from the very start of the catalog...

    Mac OS Mojave Update - Yay/Nay

    Hello all, I know there are some issues with Mojave and LR, (and likely other Adobe products), such as LR crashing when switching between Light/Dark modes. The question I want to ask the Mac users out there, is this: is there any compelling reason to upgrade to Mojave?
