    Using Brush Tool doesn't show much change... (inconsistent)

    Hi - it's starting to drive me bonkers now and I can't figure it out. I have saved my own adjustment presets (brush) for things like Brightening Eyes in this example. Sometimes when I use Brush Tool I'm seeing little-to-no effect when I brush-on and even when making gross adjustments to...

    External Editor -- sometimes opens PS CS6 sometimes PS CC2014

    Hi - at wit's end here. I've simply got some plugs in PS that I need to use in workflow and I'm on LR CC 2015.3 I'm GUESSING the folks at Adobe have chosen to LOCK USERS IN to using CC products in workflow. LR seems to 'apparently randomly' open an image in PS CS 6 or PS CC2014. Preferences...

    Syncing catalog and photos between computer and ext drive?

Then I was taking my external drive with me on laptop, but now... when I...

    Help: problems with file names being changed in edits

    Hi - sorry this is such an apparently-simple issue but I don't even know what to search for to look it up myself so here I am: I right-clicked on a photo by mistake and mis-selected something and despite me going back and clicking 'title' on the photos, now I have nothing in the grid display...

    Both JPEG and RAW - renaming files/photos?

    Hi - just shot a wedding and went both JPEG and RAW but not in a direct 1-for-1 relationship. So not all RAWs have a JPEG equivalent. In any case, I was hoping to rename all the files after import to something else (not that it really matters...I suppose...) - it seems to me that LR just numbers...
