    Inexpensive Tablet that can run LR reasonably?

    I'm curious if someone can recommend (based upon experience, not speculation) an inexpensive tablet capable of reasonably running Lightroom.

    File Renaming?

    Operating System: Windows 10 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): 6 (it's at home, so I don't know the exact version). I've been using a program by Breeze Software called Downloader Pro to pull my photos from the card(s) and rename them according to a data/time scheme that I like...

    caption to flickr description?

    I know that at one time, when I published to flickr, whatever I had in Lightroom as the caption for a photo, was on flickr as the description. It doesn't seem to be that anymore or at least it isn't doing it for me. Is there a setting I need in order to make this happen again?

    Multiple Catalogs and People Recognition

    Mine is just slow when first starting up. But I really was relying on the advice of others. My preference would be to continue with a single catalog. I hear that's bad; bad for performance.

    Multiple Catalogs and People Recognition

    I currently use just one catalog in Lightroom, and it has photos from several years of work. For performance, I thought maybe it would be good to start a new catalog each year or two, but I'm afraid if I do that, I would lose the benefit of the people recognition feature, that I've managed to...

    using mobile only as a preliminary remote edit, but move photos (w edits) to desktop

    Is there an easy way to run Lightroom mobile on my windows 10 surface computer, do preliminary edits on it, and then when I get home, copy the photos (with edits) to my desktop to be further edited in Lightroom? I don't want to use collections. I want to be able to move those photos with...

    can I safely remove previous versions?

    I just wanted to make sure that if I did that, that it wouldn't hurt the new installation.

    can I safely remove previous versions?

    I have 5.7 now. Can I safely remove the 2 previous versions without damaging the newest version?

    Preset for Pro Contrast?

    I am a frequent use of Nik Software's Color Efex Pro, which has a Pro Contrast filter. I typically use the Dynamic Contrast preset within that. I like the results, but wish that for most things, I wish I had something similar that I could do within Lightroom 5. I was wondering if anyone out...

    export to hdr pro hangs on last file

    I have 80 gb of free space. The images are all present, and aren't corrupt as far as I can tell.

    export to hdr pro hangs on last file

    I have done this many times but suddenly lastnight, I started having trouble. I am exporting 3 images to HDR Pro, and it hangs on the last image. I ended up letting it sit there for a couple of hours, hoping that it would finally go, but it never did. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    renaming: uniqueness?

    I'm intrigued with the script, just because of the additional options if I would want it, but it sounds like the functionality is there to take on a -1, -2 etc at the end of the filename. I'd prefer a _1, _2, but I can't complain. The functionality that I want is there.

    renaming: uniqueness?

    Thanks for running the test. When I can get to my computer, I'll test this out. If it's how I interpret, it might be within the realm of what I'm looking for. Thanks.

    renaming: uniqueness?

    Certaiinly not enough time. I would have had to drive home, fire up my computer, etc, to test this. Not enough time. But with what I've found here so far, I will continue to do things the way I've been doing them, because the flexibility is not there to do it in Lightroom, and it doesn't sound...

    renaming: uniqueness?

    Yes. As I had said, I had done that before, but the numbering does nothing to number two images specifically taken in the same second so that there's a 01, 02, 03. The seq # names it so it'll be unique, but other than that, there's no logical reason for two images taken in the same second to...

    renaming: uniqueness?

    I tried SEQ number but the files don't get named well. It's only a kluge. Yes, you do end up with a unique name, but the numbering doesn't end up with two files taken in the same second to have 01 and 02 tacked onto the end, which would make sense. Instead, the SEQ starts at the beginning of...

    renaming: uniqueness?

    That's an example of the inflexibility. It doesn't solve the problem of why I want to name my photos by date and time, in the first place. Unless I remember to reset my camera's image counters each day, those image counters could roll over and then the images wouldn't sort in my directories in...

    renaming: uniqueness?

    I've looked at various file renaming ideas, but my frustration with Lightroom is that it still does not have the granularity I feel I need in renaming a file with date and time. It doesn't go down to the hundredth of seconds, so if two shots are taken within the same second, the filenames will...

    When does V 5.2 come out of RC? (Final)

    I was hoping that it would be out by now. I've been holding off on an upgrade until 5.2

    Lightroom adds extra keywords to the ones I add

    No. When I check the photos in the library, the extra tags aren't there. It's just when I publish.

    Lightroom adds extra keywords to the ones I add

    Well, I posted a series of photos from a volleyball game. I had keywords like ncaa, volleyball, "women's volleyball", and team name. I got those, but in addition, I got keywords that I use when I tag hockey games; hockey, "ice hockey".

    Lightroom adds extra keywords to the ones I add

    I try to tag my photos with keywords, if at all possible and then publish to flickr and to smugmug. However, I've noticed that in some cases, it adds keywords that I did not tag the photos with when it publishes. WHen I look at my library, the photos are tagged as I originally tagged, but when...
