    LR6 to LR Classic with MacOS Monterey

    I am in the process of doing the exact same thing—upgrading from LR6, probably later this week. I bought a 27" 2019 iMac with the Monterey OS upgrade and am planning to purchase a LRc 11 subscription. My question is about steps, which may be answered by Adobe in their directions, but I thought...

    Getting Newer iMac but keeping 6.14; help needed with configuration

    Thanks, Hal & Z and all the others who have commented. Your experience is helping me make an informed and wise decision. I think that I'll upgrade the desktop first (and later, the laptop) to see how that goes—newer equipment, LrC subscription that covers both devices, the works. I hope that I...

    Getting Newer iMac but keeping 6.14; help needed with configuration

    Since you all think that it would be a sketchy path for me to follow by purchasing a newer computer but keeping 6.14 and using an older OS such as Mohave, as both are unsupported or near so, I suppose that the best solution would be to bite the bullet and subscribe to a LR plan. For me, it...

    Getting Newer iMac but keeping 6.14; help needed with configuration

    Hello all: I occasionally use Lightroom 6.14 for mostly personal work, as I am a writer and an (occasional) amateur photographer. And so I decided to stick with 6.14 (desktop) and own a perpetual license for as long as Adobe allows its existence. I realize that it is "obsolete," but then again...

    Help with import button grayed out

    I would start with Victoria Bampton's Quick Start ebook, which she offers on this site. See attached images from that. No doubt there is some commentary on this LRQ forum regarding how to do this technique. Search the site and something will probably turn up. I believe that LRQ also offers a...

    Help with import button grayed out

    I moved all of my photos to a separate hard drive and pointed LR to it in a designated folder. I used the techniques espoused by LR Queen and Laura Shoe.

    Help with import button grayed out

    This may or may not be any help, but recently I had a similar problem when my LR 6.14 Legacy program (iMac OS 10.10.5) would no longer load photos from any source. The import button on both sides of my screen would not function (grayed out). I listed my problem on this forum in May 2020, could...

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    Cletus: I'm back. This is what I did: I sent my computer off to my repair guy and he upgraded my OS to 10/11.6 El Capitan as part of an iterative process. Will probably stop at Sierra as this machine is old. He checked for hardware faults and found only a defective fan program and a vertical...

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    Prior to Sunday, May 17 I was able to import photos: 1. from my desktop 2. from an SD card inserted into an adapter and then into the ISB slot on my computer 3. from a thumb drive inserted into the USB. All of these methods had worked fine. All of this changed on Sunday. I contacted Adobe today...

    Lightroom 6.14 download

    I went to the Adobe website and scrolled down to "contact us." Using the live chat box that was provided, I was able to explain what I needed and connect with Legacy Services. I was then directed through the procedure of downloading 6.14 from a secure and unique link that they provided after...

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    Hmm... Well, if there is room for the files in the available disk space on the desktop, and if the 6.0 version of program seems to run properly on the laptop, then that might imply that there is a problem with the desktop computer or the LR 6.14 program that is on it. Your opinion?

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    Jim Wilde: Slide 4 should indicate what you are requesting. Cletus: I took my La Cie drive and hooked it up to my MacBk Pro which also has LR 6.0 installed. I checked its free memory and it has tons. I was able to load both desktop images and also images from the SD card into the La Cie using...

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    When I tried to upload photos from my Canon SD card, all I saw as in the screen shot was a blank screen and "cancel" as my only highlighted option. Usually the new photos show up as bright images and the already uploaded images are grayed out. The "source " image on the top left of the screen...

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    Below is a series of screens showing the steps I took as normal to upload an image from a desktop folder. I'll send one next of an attempt to upload new images from a Canon camera memory card. BTW, the random dialog box came up at one point and the upload destination switched to a "pictures"...

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    When I import, I have always selected "Copy as DNG" and that has successfully imported images to my LR platform. However, in the situation I am now experiencing, the images do not even show up as being available to impost, even if I select "Copy," "Move," or "Add." Nothing seems to work. The...

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    I read about upgrades and how certain ones might cause problems, so I have not upgraded anything. I have attached a screen shot of what my current system is comprised of. Being somewhat of a Luddite and very wary of large corporations and their imperious, arbitrary behaviors, I had instantly...

    LR 6.14 No Longer Importing Photos - What's Up?

    Hello all: I have used LR Classic 6.14 on my iMac 10.10.5 Yosemite and everything was working fine for years. On Sunday, May 1, 2020 I went to import some photos from a desktop folder and the images available for uploading (not already in the master collection) did not show up as ready to be...

    Library module Photo Merge Problem 6.14

    Hannes: Good points. Another rookie mistake on my part. Since I don't have a way to crawl back under a lift and shoot the project again, I'll find someone who can stitch the three fotos together. Will get it done somehow.

    Library module Photo Merge Problem 6.14

    Jim: Shot 3 is the front of the car, shot 7 the middle, and shot 10 the back end. I thought that I had enough overlap by counting the panels underneath. Shot 3 includes three panels to the right of the axle; shot 7 includes those and continues to where the panels end and the transmission begins...

    Library module Photo Merge Problem 6.14

    Paul and C Lee: I'm aware that there are different pano types but am unable to get to them in order to select the type. For some reason I had thought that there was a "history" on the images, that one could go back and click on a prior unedited image. That would aid me greatly in trying to...

    Collections inside Collections

    Thanks, folks, I eventually figured out how to purchase an upgrade of LR6, then I had to figure out how to get to the download link. Then I had to figure out how to load it onto my two computers. A lot of figuring and experimenting was done in order to successfully negotiate the Adobe web site...
