    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 does not grab lens from Exif in development module

    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 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

    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...

    Suddenly my DNG files are double their size in LR 6

    Usually my DNG files take or took up around 25 - 30 Mb per shot. Now i discovered that since lately they are all around 50 Mb in size. I think I clicked on the import dialog somewhere wrongly (?) where I was asked to keep original Raw files inside the DNG or not. But for the life of me, I...

    Defringe Dipper removal

    There are two dippers in LR: one to set the WB: I can drag the WB dipper to where I think white resides in a photo, click when I am there with its tip. And LR then sets the WB according to that point and the dipper jumps back into its place on the right side panel. Wonderful. Trying to look for...
