    Can't export cropped PNG screenshot images

    I've imported some screenshots from an iPad which are all PNG files. I've then made virtual copies of them which have further been cropped, and now I want to export those cropped screenshots (for uploading to online forums), and where the trouble starts.... First I see no PNG option, and since...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    .... or better yet: just press (on a Mac) CMD-P three times after each other (something I accidently discovered) once you've selected the photos! The complete procedure being as follows: 1) go to the Library module and select the photos you want to include in the PDF file 2) press CMD-P (go to...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    No, as far as I can see it only saves the print setup, not the actual print procedure. But I believe I've found a solution! Actually I should have thought of this before as I use it all the time for making PDFs of web pages, forum discussions, email etc. which I want to keep for later... In...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    Very nice! But I still have to press the "Printer" button (not "Print") and go through the rest of the procedure I listed, finally by pressing "Save PDF", right? Is there a way I could just select the images in question then press just a single button, a single menu item or similar?

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    Excellent explanation! I'll be sure to always have the PPI value setting turned off when printing PDF files from LR. Prior to reading your reply I tried out different paper sizes (in the MacOS print dialog). While viewing the different results I believe I came to the same conclusion as yours...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    It works the same way here (relying on a "PDF printing" feature within the operating system (or some OS-add on) PDF feature). I just tried it but the end result was terrible (degraded image resolution). Then I did another test, this time by disabling the "Print resolution" where I previously...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    Luckily Preview can handle PNG files without first converting. I've been using Preview for this sort of thing before, but it's a multi-step thing and a bit cumbersome, first adding all the images to the sidebar (ensuring they're in the correct order), then "Printing" to PDF. Preview's...

    Custom sizes when printing to PDF?

    I'd like to "print" multiple images to a PDF file with the same quality and dimensions they're at originally. They're all the same resolution and dimensions (1024x768, 72 DPI) and PNG files so I'd like to keep that for the final PDF as well, but as far as I can see there are only a few standard...

    Copy Mac Finder paths to keyword hierarchy?

    I don't know if anyone's still reading and I'm certainly not very much into this stuff, but.... I made a couple of changes and it seems to work (copying only the folder's name to use as keywords -not the entire path as well). I made two changes: 1) found at the beginning of the script, first...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    Absolutely! I do appreciate John's efforts, but as I only need that single feature of the plugin the other script might do (although with a modification). I just wanted to ensure the author was OK with online discussions on modifying it (or if he'd rather not).

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    By the way, do you mind if I discuss modifying the "File path to keywords" script mentioned here and which you posted earlier here? Although I'm not into programming I can understand some of the basics, but see that it's not obvious from the code what to do with "path" (so as to eliminate the...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    OK, I've tried it out with "Folder" instead, but there's still a dialog box popping up, although a different one. After trying various combinations, these are the settings that worked for me: and for the dialog popup which follow after pressing "Process 2 photos": I noticed that if you click...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    Thanks. I'll look into the script and see although I'm no programmer... I successfully installed the trial version of your "Search and replace" plugin and got to try it out! Being a while since I've used LR plugins I found that you had to select the photos to affect, then go to File - Plugin...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    Ah, I see. So I can use it instead of the "File path to keywords" script and it has options for allowing me to do exactly what I'm asking (use only the folder name as keywords for the photos within it)? The difference being that the "File path to keywords" script is free (but non-configurable...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    Thanks John and to everyone else who replied. I am however a little confused.... 1) Which script exactly are we talking about? I copied the code which was linked from posting #5, but I don't recognize the screenshot from posting #4 which says "From filepath to keyword". Mine says "File path to...

    Library module Folder name to keywords -a plugin for this?

    Is there a plugin (or a way to do it within LR itself) which takes the name of the folder and adds it to all the photos which reside inside that folder? I actually did this with thousands of photos several years back (doing a rough organizing in Adobe Bridge with folder names used as brief...

    Library module Keyword gets automatically changed -how to prevent?

    Yes, that's what I thought too. But I believe I've solved the problem! First I applied Johan Elzenga's solution: to use a slightly different keyword. Then I finally found the keyword which caused all, as a "child". Guess it was hidden well (or my eyes aren't what they used to be!) ;) So I...

    Library module Keyword gets automatically changed -how to prevent?

    OK, I finally found the keyword phrase which is automatically inserted. First, they do indeed appear to be a parent as there's a triangle next to it (in the "Keyword list") but nothing comes up when I expand it! When I go to the very right of it I see a number, and when I point to the right of...

    Library module Keyword gets automatically changed -how to prevent?

    Cless01l : I saw your reply after I had posted the above... Thanks for explaining. I believe I need to re-read the manual to find out what parent keywords are and what their use is, but the bottom line is that LR is overriding what I intend and I want to eliminate that. My LR use and setup is...

    Library module Keyword gets automatically changed -how to prevent?

    Yes, I understand. But here that same keyword automatically expands to a sentence which starts with that common keyword. How do I prevent this from happening? For instance: I want to add the following keywords to some new photos: Travel, vacation, family trip But apparently the word "vacation"...

    Library module Keyword gets automatically changed -how to prevent?

    For some reason, when entering a certain keyword it gets expanded to something else. The keyword I've written stays but it followed by a "less than" (<) character and a keyword description I've obviously used for some other photos in the past. Why is this happening, and what can I do to...

    Catalogs How to reset "Select a recent catalog to open"?

    You were quite right! The old paths went away after a day or so (and haven't re-appeared). I don't know if it's because I didn't use them within a certain time limit, if they weren't available for a certain amount of time or something else, but they're gone now. I prefer not to hack into...

    Which OSX version (10.10-10.14) best for LR 6?

    That's a good summary. Luckily I tested out various OS versions on a separate SSD before commiting. I learnt that High Sierra 10.13 can actually be installed without converting the file format to APFS, so at my second attempt I did that. I had first decided to end upgrading at 10.12 (10.11 has...

    Catalogs How to reset "Select a recent catalog to open"?

    You're right! By renaming the unused catalogs (or a folder which is part of its path) they no longer appeared. But as soon as I renamed them back they reappeared again. Perhaps there's a cache that needs to be cleared out to make it completely disappear. At least that solves my problem, and in...
