    lightroom 4.2 errors

    i have no idea what that is. looking on the web it has to do with web animation. Unless it ships with cs6, no, I dont knowingly have it. Does it have anything to do with lightroom web /posting module? I have never used it. had a few crashes again last night with and without tablet.. launch...

    lightroom 4.2 errors

    Hi Jim, I'm not sure how to use safe mode. Catching the person who built the computer is a toughie and I cant lift it to take it out. He doesn't have a business but he knows computers. problems started with LR 4.2 except for the import issue which it's always had since lr4. the launch...

    lightroom 4.2 errors

    this worked for the export problem. it was blank. what would make all the settings change with the update? the first question might have just been a fluke.. everything seems to have worked since. thanks everyone, problem solved!

    LIGHTROOM 4.1 losing the 'source' of upload during selection

    a friend who is a computer whiz built this computer. i am overloaded with files, but it worked well on my old computer with essentially the same external drives as before.

    LIGHTROOM 4.1 losing the 'source' of upload during selection

    well, apparently that was a glitch with my external drives. I gather they upset the boot order or something.I dont ruly understand that, but maybe its something I did. In any case the computer is alive and well after unplugging everything. havent downloaded any more images in lightroom to see...

    LIGHTROOM 4.1 losing the 'source' of upload during selection

    oh-oh.. i think the problems go deeper than lightroom. I think the computer died last night. It won't boot. how annoying! I don't have a good feeling about SSD drives.

    LIGHTROOM 4.1 losing the 'source' of upload during selection

    Hi Victoria, importing from a hard drive doesnt seem to be a problem. I havent tried the 'uncheck all' feature with that. there is no problem importing all of them from a card. . only when do teh 'uncheck all' and I try to make selections. the computer has many hard drives and an SSD for...

    upgrading and moving a huge catalogue (92 gigs)

    thanks. it seems to be working fine.. the folders are renamed.. some things seem fast, and finding other little surprises in the develop module, but nothing i cant cope with. what i found most with tutorials is that there are too many variables. no really explicit 'how' to do's in step form...

    upgrading and moving a huge catalogue (92 gigs)

    :) Thanks, that's what I figured, but wasn't sure how to rename it. that shouldn't be too difficult.. if you hear a howl from Canada you will know I did something wrong. Fear definitely stands in the way when tackling this job> I really appreciate having you folks standing in the wings to...

    upgrading and moving a huge catalogue (92 gigs)

    yes, for sure there are two by the same name.. I sort of half followed some video instructions i saw that said to make a place on the new drive for the lightroom catalogues. then i copy/pasted the LR2 cat into that, but named it LR2catalogue upgrade so i wouldnt be confused.. ( understatement)...

    upgrading and moving a huge catalogue (92 gigs)

    hello folks.. I seem to be up and running... everything seems to be intact, except maybe the thumbnails from drives that arent plugged in. i dont know what i did wrong on the import that made two catalogues by the same name, but one is larger than the other so i dont think its an issue..I can...

    upgrading and moving a huge catalogue (92 gigs)

    update.... it is generating thumbnails as we speak! I finally bit the bullet and copied the LR cat file only... the sequence that followed was pretty much a guessing game as none of it was as straight forward as any tutorial or video described.. in any case, I did it! it seems as if the...

    upgrading and moving a huge catalogue (92 gigs)

    Thanks for the welcome Victoria! no, I am leaving the pictures where they are... all spread out on various mirror raid external drives. that part is fine. Tutorials i find have been a mixed bag of information, and after a month of procrastination I finally got up the nerve to try the export...
