    Changing one preset's export folder changes all other presets

    I've just hit on another issue that may be related. Last fall, Adobe support helped me resolve a problem where my print templates stopped saving the printer profile choice when I selected "update with current settings." The profile field was always blank. The problem recently resurfaced and...

    Changing one preset's export folder changes all other presets

    Thanks for the quick response, Johan. Yes, most of my presets save to different, specific folders. My Facebook preset saves to a /Facebook folder, my iPad preset saves larger images to a /iPad folder, etc. The problem is that they're no longer retaining their specific destination folders...

    Changing one preset's export folder changes all other presets

    When I change the export folder on one preset, whether or not I update that preset to current settings, the export folder in all other presets changes to that same folder. And although exporting using any preset really does put the file in this "new" location, when I look at the preset...

    How to clear the Import menu's list of recent sources?

    Thanks, Cletus. I sometimes import not from a camera card, but from paths deep in my folders that contain files from Photoshop batch processing specially formatted images I've posted to Instagram. I like to keep records of what I've actually posted there. So navigating by clicking several levels...

    How to clear the Import menu's list of recent sources?

    Thanks, Jim. I looked at the bottom of the list for some sort of "clear" button, but didn't expect it to be in the same font, as the last item in the list of paths. Regards, Russell

    How to clear the Import menu's list of recent sources?

    My list of "Recent Sources" in the Select a Source menu of the Import dialog goes back many years, scrolling clear off the bottom of my 27-inch screen. Is there a way to re-set this list of recent paths and start over? Thanks, Russell

    Can't get Book module Auto Layout to show title text

    May I please ask you another question about using the Book module? When two verticals with captions are stacked, Auto Layout puts the upper caption on top of the lower photo. (see attached screenshot) Is there a way to set the bottom padding or the Photo Text offset when using Auto Layout...

    Can't get Book module Auto Layout to show title text

    Thank you! I'd read several online articles about using the Book module, and not one of them mentioned book preferences, so I thought you had to do all your settings in the right side-menu. It's doing what I want now. Thanks again, Russell

    Can't get Book module Auto Layout to show title text

    Instead of pulling the text from the Title field, the Book module just says "Photo Text" below every picture. (Using LR 9.3 on Mac.) When I save as PDF, it's just blank where the titles should be. See attached files. What could I be doing wrong? Thanks, Russell

    Print module Custom package good on screen, rotated on print...

    Resetting the preferences didn’t help, so I finally gave up and rebuilt the user template from scratch and then it worked fine. I didn’t know you could somehow corrupt a template, but I apparently did! Thanks for helping, Johan. Regards, Russell

    Print module Custom package good on screen, rotated on print...

    Sorry, Johan. I meant to say I tried both orientations in the "Page Setup" menu (rather than Print Settings, where there are no settings for orientation). And it made no difference. I’ve never had this problem before... Are the print-to-file JPGs done differently from the printer routines, so...

    Print module Custom package good on screen, rotated on print...

    I’m trying to print a custom package on 11x17 paper. It looks fine on the screen (screenshot attached) and it’s good if I print to a JPG file, but when I print, the cells are rotated the wrong direction, so some of them run off the side of the paper. (photo attached). I’ve tried with the Print...

    LR not applying nearest ISOs default develop settings

    With my old LR v6, I recall that if you saved ISO-specific develop settings and imported a file that had an ISO close to, but not exactly matching the saved setting, LR would apply settings for the closest saved setting. For example, if you saved settings for ISO 200 and 400, and imported an...

    Printing same PSD from Lightroom and Photoshop gives different results

    Paul put me on the right track. I found the LR print profile was set for Epson Enhancedd Matte, instead of the Premium Luster I was using. Both profile names start with "Epson Stylus Pro 3880..." so you can’t see which unless you click the pop-up menu. Thanks to you, Paul, and John for your...

    Printing same PSD from Lightroom and Photoshop gives different results

    Thanks for the idea, Paul. I’m away from the studio a few days, and will check that when I return.

    Printing same PSD from Lightroom and Photoshop gives different results

    I’m trying to implement Jeff Schewe's process of using Lightroom to print Photoshop PSDs, but the same file printed from the two apps doesn’t look the same. In the attached photo, the left image was printed from Photoshop, and the right from Lightroom. The Lightroom version is slightly darker...

    Can’t add spaces to print template folder name

    Are spaces not allowed in print template folder names? When I try to name a folder with a space, the OK button dims. When I replace the space with an underline, it will let me create the folder. However, it does let me have spaces in the template names. Is this normal?

    Lightroom's Edit in... Photoshop command is getting errors

    Just subscribed to the Photography Plan, and from the start, the Lightroom "Edit in..." command stumbles when trying to open an image in Photoshop CC 2019. I’m using an iMac with 24GB memory and the image files are on a USB attached drive. When I hit Command-E, it immediately goes to...

    Importing from iPhone stopped working

    I’m not sure I’ve found the problem, but the imports seem to be working now. There was a thumbnail for a jpg on the iPhone that, in the Lightroom import menu, didn’t have an import checkbox. I deleted it on the phone, and the import started working again. Perhaps the very presence of this file...

    Importing from iPhone stopped working

    Yes, 10.1.1. No videos. I figure it must be the phone, since LR on my Mac imports my Canon 70D files through its SD card slot and imports from the Ricoh's via its USB cable just fine. I’m heading out for a few days, then I’ll concentrate on issues with the phone, rather than Lightroom. Thanks!

    Importing from iPhone stopped working

    Unfortunately, Photos was not in my startup list. Since I don’t use it, there’d be no point in having it start up every time I logged in. And Photos is not auto-launching. I’d turned that off ages ago. I tried using my iPad, and got the same result. Switched USB/Lightning cables, tried a...

    Importing from iPhone stopped working

    Thanks for the quick response! How do I disable the Photos app? I’m not familiar with disabling an app on a Mac, other than deleting it. I set "Connecting this camera opens:" to point to "Adobe Lightroom" in the Image Capture app, but it made no difference. Besides, I often connect my phone to...
