    Library module LR Substitutes Creation Date for Capture Date Without Permission.

    Oh, sorry, I misread your post on my phone, thinking you'd posted some attachments. I'll wait until you have to time to follow through. Avoiding saving metadata (steps 1 and 2) will avoid one particular problem (which may or may not be what you're observing).

    I'll dig into this either late tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Library module LR Substitutes Creation Date for Capture Date Without Permission.

    LR has serious bugs and design flaws handling photos that are missing industry-standard metadata date fields, and its behavior with respect to this has changed over the years (for the worse). Since there are many date fields, assigned different names by various apps, let's get the precise...

    Every year I make a bet

    Right. My point was that when LR was perpetually licensed through LR 6 (CC 2015), major versions came out sporadically, but when it switched to subscription licensing only, Adobe has changed the major version number like clockwork every fall (Adobe Max). So the marketing issue of varying...

    Every year I make a bet

    LR CC 2015 was perpetually licensed, and for whatever reasons Adobe found it hard to get a significantly new "major" version released once a year. But when they moved to subscription licensing with LR 7, they did a pretty good job of releasing every 8 weeks, and they've been automatically...

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    Glad you got that resolved. It's too bad that Adobe has never fixed the design flaw that corrupts the preferences file.

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    A couple of years ago there were a few reports of similar symptoms with Nikon Z lenses: https://feedback-readonly.photoshop.com/conversations/lightroom-classic/lightoom-builtin-lens-profile-applied-doesnt-appear-for-nikon-z-lenses/5f5f46074b561a3d426f4827#reply_20154914...

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    Hmm, that's strange -- it says "Profile: None". Can you please post a screen shot showing the entire Lens Correction panel -- the top half of it is cut off.

    How could one remove / reset all upright guides with a single click or so?

    You could also hold down Alt on Windows or Opt on Mac -- "Upright" magically transforms to "Reset Upright". And in other Develop panels, various reset buttons will appear.

    Lightroom Catalog cannot open - Connect PC external NTFS hard drive to new MAC

    Hmmm, the first 10 results of that google search are all about enabling NTFS write support for Mac via paid, free, or built-in drivers.

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    Raws taken by the RX100 VII have lens profiles embedded in them by the camera, and LR applies the profile automatically (as shown in the screenshot above): https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/lens-profile-support.html#Cameraswithbuiltinlensprofilesupport If you're not seeing "Built-in...

    Lens profile for Sony RX100VII

    When you open the Lens Correction panel, you'll see at the bottom "Built-in Lens Profile applied". Click the "i" and you'll get more information: For many newer cameras, LR lets you disable the built-in lens profile (so you can select another lens profile), but it appears you can't do that...

    Lightroom Catalog cannot open - Connect PC external NTFS hard drive to new MAC

    Mac OS proper can read but not write NTFS-formatted drives. To write them, you'll need third-party software: https://www.google.com/search?q=mac+os+ntfs&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS921US921&oq=mac+os+ntfs&aqs=chrome..69i57.3510j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Fining camera profile DCPs after installation.

    I downloaded the Sony DSC-RX100M7 profile from here: https://goodlight.us/linear-profiles.html I imported it, selected a raw from that camera, clicked the Profile dropdown menu, selected Browse, and then expanded the Profiles group to find the profile: Some things to triple-check: - Make...

    Fining camera profile DCPs after installation.

    Also, to import profiles, do the menu command File > Import Develop Profiles And Presets. Using Windows File Explorer or Mac Finder to get them into the correct directories is quite error-prone.

    Missing camera profile on SOME photos after upgrade

    Poking into this more, I realized I oversimplified my response. So for reference by future readers: When you copy the Profile setting from a source photo or a preset to a target photo, and the profile is a camera profile (.dcp file), just the displayed name of the profile is copied. So if...

    Missing camera profile on SOME photos after upgrade

    Glad you got it sorted. There are Camera Neutral v4 profiles for these cameras: but not the Nikon D3X. In later versions of LR, the Presets panel will show a preset italicized if it contains a camera profile that's not applicable to the camera of the current photo, e.g. I think prior...

    Video files not found when the Video attribute filter is applied

    I read this before but just now understood the implication: The only way two entries in the catalog can have the same disk path (as shown in Finder) is if they are virtual copies. So one of the pair of videos is a virtual copy of the other. Your past import processes (either Import From...

    Video files not found when the Video attribute filter is applied

    It's definitely a bug in the catalog. You could try removing them from the catalog and re-importing them. But because LR never learned out to save video metadata back to the video files, you'd have to reapply your captions, keywords, etc. by hand. Alternatively, you could try exporting your...

    Video files not found when the Video attribute filter is applied

    "I noticed that all of the videos that do not show up in the attributes icon filter were merged from a different catalogue than the ones that do." "Some of these came into the older catalogues from Aperture." I did a quick test with my LR 10.4, importing a catalog containing a video, and the...

    Missing camera profile on SOME photos after upgrade

    In LR 6 you had set that photo to have profile named "Camera Neutral v4". I checked my LR 6.14 (Windows) and LR 10.4 (Mac), and there is no built-in profile with that name for the Nikon D3X. Did you create this profile yourself at some point or did you get it from a third party? Rather than...

    Missing camera profile on SOME photos after upgrade

    To troubleshoot this: 1. Select one of the photos that shows Profile Missing. 2. Do Metadata > Save Metadata To File. 3. Upload the photo and its accompanying .xmp sidecar to Dropbox, Google Drive, or similar, and post its sharing link here. We can stick it under the microscope and see what...
