    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

    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...

    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 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'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...

    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...

    Adjustments History?

    Is there a way to get the adjustments history and be able to put that in a caption? Sometimes I want to be able to post a photo and tell people what all went into getting the result. That combined with the EXIF is pretty useful.

    Importing tiff?

    I exported 3 bracketed shots to Photomatix and when done, saved to tiff to import back into Lightroom. DIdn't work. I checked that the tiff file is created, but Lightroom wont even import a tiff manually. What am I doing wrong?

    Republishing captions only?

    Easy question, hopefully. If I publish a set of photos to flickr or smugmug and then later make an update to a caption or keywords, if I publish again, will it just update the changed caption or keyword, or will it reupload the photo too?

    Camera Profiles?

    When I first got Lightroom 3 (maybe 6 months ago), I saw that there were camera profiles but I didn't look into using that feature until now. the thing is, when I go there, there are only two that show up. they are 2010 and 2003 (I think). I would expect to see one for the various Canon...

    File Naming Question

    I've been using a program called Downloader Pro which does an excellent job of downloading and renaming my photos from the camera. I import into Lightroom 3 afterwards. I'd like to shoot tethered and/or download and import into Lightroom directly, but not sure if I can keep my current naming...

    Publish but no Export?

    I am new to Lightroom and I usually develop and then export my images to jpg. I have people I have to send items to as soon as I can, and then later I want to publish to smugmug. When I do publish, it does a re-export to jpg. Is there a way to publish, but just use the jpgs that are already...
