    Did you want to do this inside or outside of LR Classic? And have the images already been imported? --Ken

    lightroom and windows 11

    I do not know if you have fully solved your problem, but do not re-import your photos! This will only create a mess. As was recommended above, try to help LR find the drive where the photos are located, or change the letter of the drive to match what LR believes is its assigned letter. If...

    LR6 on a new machine - license rejected

    I hope you are successful with Adobe, but a couple of things to note. LR6 does "phone home" on occasion, something that LR5 did not do. And this verification is not that radically different from the "phoning home" that LR Classic does as well through their Creative Cloud app. It is...

    Catalogs Catalog Problem? Not sure what to do, or why it happened>

    You do not want to try and correct this LR 11 problem catalog unless it was your only option. I agree with Johan that you should go back to the LR 10 catalog in LR 11 and let it create/update a new copy of it. Adobe wisely designed this process to protect the older version since the new...

    Catalogs Catalog Problem? Not sure what to do, or why it happened>

    Have you looked at the folder in File Explorer where the images reside to see if all 70k of images are physically there? --Ken

    Upgrading PC Platform - Sanity Check Please

    My concern about trim was that the spinner settings would be set on the SSD, among other things, and the OP might not know how to change them. I swapped out my spinner for an SSD, but that was a number of year ago, and I believe that I did a clean install. My Win 10 upgrade, however, was done...

    Upgrading PC Platform - Sanity Check Please

    IIRC, cloning from a spinning drove to an SSD is not always recommended due to things like how trimming is handled. I agree that building a new internal boot drive can be a major PITA, but it does clear away some of the registry crud. If you buy a Samsung SSD, see if their Magician software...

    Why does Canada seem to get left out of these types of deals? I do feel for our neighbors to the north. --Ken

    I don't doubt it, but it was interesting that Victoria called it out. I wonder if she has had any success in the UK with an Amazon sale price. --Ken

    File Renaming/Moving DST Time Quirk

    The Windows issue is not too hard to live with since the EXIF info. seems to properly reflect what is in the files and the naming with the time incorporated seems correct. If I wanted a bit more control, I would consider not using the DST flag in the camera and just manually changing the time...

    File Renaming/Moving DST Time Quirk

    I had just a few minutes so I took a couple of shots with the D500 which just had a firmware update today. I took three shots - one at the current date/time, and two with the camera dated last summer during DST. The first had DST setting off and the second had it on. EXIFToolGUI reported the...

    File Renaming/Moving DST Time Quirk

    FWIW, I have two updates to share. First, Chris, the author of Downloader Pro did provide me with two responses. I am copying his responses below: and later I also decided to run some test files on a Nikon D750 with various dates (during DST both with and without DST checked in the camera...

    Site Performance

    That's kind of what I thought as well. It seemed odd that we were getting warnings when Hawaii either did not or retracted theirs. I am not sure of what they were expecting, but sometimes it does pay to play it safe as a lot of folks have little to no common sense. When we visited the Big...

    Site Performance

    They sent a couple of emergency alerts to our cell phones, but as I live up on a ridge away from the shoreline, I know I will be having bigger problems than site performance if I am seeing water from a tsunami!:eek2: --Ken

    I feel the same way about promos and do not like closing and re-opening accounts. If I see any Amazon deals on annual subscription renewal cards. I'll post back here. Thanks, --Ken

    File Renaming/Moving DST Time Quirk

    Will do. As I am primarily using it on the front end for renaming and making backups, and as I do not use XMP files, that has not been an issue for me. But I am hoping the author, Chris, will hopefully provide some explanation or possible solution. --Ken

    File Renaming/Moving DST Time Quirk

    I agree that date/time screw ups are best handled with EXIFTool GUI before the files enter LR, but that is not exactly the case here. The camera appears to have done what it was supposed to do, but there is a software glitch either in Downloader Pro or Windows 10 that is causing an error in...

    File Renaming/Moving DST Time Quirk

    Hi Cletus, Thanks for replying. I have compared two sample files in EXIFTool GUI against their modified files (one from my D500 and one from my Olympus E-M1 Mk I) and am copying the applicable EXIF lines below : D500 FileModifyDate 2018:06:30 10:02:42-07:00 2018:06:30 11:02:41-07:00...

    File Renaming/Moving DST Time Quirk

    I have been looking to use Breeze Systems Downloader Pro to do some file renaming and copying and found an interesting quirk that I am trying to better understand. When Downloader Pro copies and renames a file that was taken during the months when we observe DST, the times in the EXIF data read...

    Is there a way to compare folder contents?

    I also use Beyond Compare, but a quick and dirty alternative if there are not too many folder is to use FreeCommander XE. It will quickly and easily compare two folders and highlight the different files. --Ken

    Any particular outstanding portfolio website?

    If the OP is looking to sell images then I am not sure that Portfolio would be the best recommendation. I do not recall it having any sales features, but it has been a bit of time since I have looked at it. --Ken

    Any particular outstanding portfolio website?

    There are numerous sites, and your use case and budget usually will help narrow down the choices. You mentioned SmugMug and there is their crosstown competitors Zenfolio and Squarespace among others. WHCC has a list of their partners, and that has numerous services that might interest you as...

    calibrating Display

    You are mixing and matching things which is not uncommon. We work in color spaces and we assign color spaces to certain files like jpegs. Your monitor can display certain color spaces, as is indicated by the results you have mentioned. But you do not calibrate equipment to color spaces. You...

    calibrating Display

    When you calibrate a monitor, you do not calibrate it to a color space. A monitor is calibrated to against a known set of targets that the hardware reads from the software. If your monitor can be run in different color spaces, what space does DataColor recommend choosing when running the...
