    How to create general presets for use when importing files from camera

    So how do I set something like that up. It is much more involved and complicated than this was at LR 6.14. How can I use my "general presets" as explained earlier? Do I have to specify each parameter individually for an import preset definition. Where do I do that on my screen? No doubt I am...

    How to create general presets for use when importing files from camera

    What is the difference between a develop preset on import and an import preset? I do not know or understand this difference, sorry. And that may mess me up in LR Classic. Can anyone help constructively on what I should do where and how in the Develop module. Thanks,

    How to create general presets for use when importing files from camera

    Here is my workaround (tedious, not optimal), but with lots of effort it works: I looked at the one pic with the optimal general presets. I clicked on the plus + sign in the develop (or was this in the Library module, I already forgot) and named this as a user preset "pre66gen". All done once...

    How to create general presets for use when importing files from camera

    I am coming from LR 6.14 to LR Classic. In LR 6.14 I used a general importing preset on all uploads from the camera and then fiddled with the settings a wee bit until I was happy, new image to new image. I have prepared one recent image in the catalog that has all the desired import presets...

    Sync settings grayed out

    I have changed from eternal LR 6.14 to LR classic for pay. When I develop my pictures now, i notice that "option-command S" syncs some of the development settings but not all and not the ones I want to make identical on a set of highlighted pics. Does this settings sync of old still exist in...

    LR Classic Intel or Universal, which one do I use and need?

    Thanks, Paul; each of the 4 LR app versions used around 2.6 Gb + a small file. As I wrote above : "each taking up around 3 Gb of space in my macbook pro apps now." Having recieved no answer for a while, I started to experiment: I opened my LR Classic on the laptop, looked at pictures there...

    LR Classic Intel or Universal, which one do I use and need?

    I have noted that in my Macbook applications folder I now have 4 versions of LR apps. I have just switched to LR Classic (pay monthly) from LR 6.14 (eternal use license) since I went to Big Sur which only can use 64 bit apps.. There is a LR Universal and a LR Intel application , as well as a...

    LR does not grab lens from Exif in development module

    Thanks, this may actually work. My chipped lenses all appear in the pop-up 'lens profile list' in Develop. If I knew how and where to go to 'Setup' in LR this may work . In Develop and LR 6.14 there is a similar settings possibility under "Set default settings..' . , but that resets just...

    LR does not grab lens from Exif in development module

    These lenses have been found before, automatically in LR 6.14. They still appear in the drop down list of 'lens profiles' in the development module right now; so they have a 'profile' , their names and designations are entered automatically into the exif data set upon upload, but they all...

    LR does not grab lens from Exif in development module

    Yes, LR 6.14. But it used to know the lenses that are chipped ... However, I restructured, redid my LR catalogue from scratch, maybe something went amiss there ? Can this be repaired somehow that exif is known to and can be used in the development module? Seems natural for LR to know what to...

    LR does not grab lens from Exif in development module

    I noticed recently, that the exif of my uploads contains the lens that the picture was taken with (if the lens is chipped Sony or Sigma), BUT in the development module it only reads and knows the Iso and exposure. I use import presets for my cameras re noise control depending on shooting ISO...

    Why do some pictures get lost and are missing?

    Thanks and no: last week all 38,000 files were found, none missing, the week before same thing (on a mac) today suddenly 2/3 of all m files were missing in LR. Nothing has been moved, nothing at all. How can they have moved, I wonder. My file structure has not been changed for years ... When i...

    Why do some pictures get lost and are missing?

    I have around 39,000 pictures in my LR catalogue. Every once in a while, 70 or 120 or such are listed as missing. Ok, I did click on the ! icon on the Grid window and it is easy to click through the "Another photo by the same name" sequence to get them all refound. Now a BIG set (21,000 )...

    Viewing dng images from backup drive in LR

    I moved my images from external hard drives to cloud storage. in October and that messed up my LR catalogue to become unusable. So I started back from scratch. I still use the perpetual LR 6.14 on my Mac. Sorry about the confusion. Lightroom version: 6.14 [ 1149743 ] License: Perpetual Language...

    Viewing dng images from backup drive in LR

    You ask: Is there really a major reason for wanting DNG files? What is that? My reason is, or was so that I can have the benefit of the latest pped image version, which may be from 2 years ago, at all times. But for that to happen I just need to have all xmp files made and saved. And that is...

    Viewing dng images from backup drive in LR

    I made the change by clicking in LR catalogue settings>Metadata to Automatically write changes into XMP. And thereupon LR bombed, could not be force quit, Eventually I restarted the Mac and now LR gives me 34,000 files as it should, but all folders are with a - at the end, and 'Loading' goes...

    Viewing dng images from backup drive in LR

    Thanks! Now how should I have saved metadata in my dng files of old? Is there anything I should have done? What should I be doing with my current pp work that I might never have done before and was unawares of totally ... I pp my current files from the preset settings as needed and when I...

    Viewing dng images from backup drive in LR

    I have noticed that all my old dng files in the LR catalogue have just the 'first presets" attached and not the old revisions and improvements that are in the dng files on an external harddrive. When I wanted to see and import those old, better looking image files, I made a new folder called...

    How to simplify finding photos in LR

    Dear John, I managed to get 20,000 + pics un-missing in about 45 minutes by doing it one month at a time, rather than one day; this went around 365 times faster, didn't it. Year by year did not work. Anyway here is another screen shot from the Library screen:

    How to simplify finding photos in LR

    I have found a way to clean up the front /Users/FU/... nonsense one month at a time so that the ! icons disappear and all images can be developed, i.e., are found in Develop e.g., by just looking for one ! file inside its month and clicking Select and ok throughout the process : Unfortunately...

    How to simplify finding photos in LR

    Oh John, I did as you suggested: there seem to be just single copies of all ! iconed files: But those all have the silly /Users/FU/ prefixes. 28,000 now left after a day's work to drop those /Users/FU/.. fronts.

    How to simplify finding photos in LR

    Thanks, John. No folders are missing at all, just the files are in the long path with /Users/FU/Box/Pictures/... ... in front of where they actually are at /Box/Pictures/... How to suppress that silly front part of /Users/FU/, that is the question. As I said i have done it manually and here...

    How to simplify finding photos in LR

    Ok: Here seems to be the problem: when I uploaded all my files into the LR catalogue in October, it seems that LR used the file addresses (so called 'previous location" from one of the pop up windows) as /users/FU/Box/Pictures/Archive/SA6300/2016/July 2016/July20/file number . For some reason...

    How to simplify finding photos in LR

    My LR library is date based. I just found out that most of my 4000+ image files from 2016 are "missing" and they carry the ! square in grid view. (I can develop them though ... ? ?) When I click on the ! icon of one picture, a window pops up for the respective date and all the shots of that day...
