    Missing Steps from Develop History

    [or, there's something weird going on here"] Imagine an image with a fairly simple history, displayed as: Publish Auto Tone Auto White Balance <Name of Import Preset> All four show different settings on the develop sliders. How can Publishing an image change its Develop...

    Searchable Metadata - Part 2

    During my investigations into searchable metadata (in another thread) I've noticed some very strange results when the search string includes the hash '#' character. Is anyone aware of '#' having any mystical properties as some sort of a wildcard, or maybe being ignored completely? Or is search...

    Library module Searchable Metadata

    Before I waste too much time working it out for myself <G> ... Is anyone aware of a definitive list of which IPTC and EXIF metatdata fields are treated as "searchable" by the Library Filter "text" search? Ta.

What I've deduced so far: .xmp (this is a given - after all, LR writes them) .jpg (when shooting RAW+JPG) .wav and .mp3 (from what I have read on the web) .thm (by observation of what happens when...

    Confused by scope of "Backup Location"

    When I visit "Edit | Catalog Settings | Backup ....." and specify a location for my backups, am I (A) setting a location specific to the current catalog? (each catalog has its own backup location) or (B) setting a location specific to the current installation of Lightroom? (all backups of all...

    Adding Multiple Folders to Library

    I'm cleaning up my library folder hierarchy and need to move catalogued pictures into pre-existing folders not previously known to Lightroom (i.e. not currently showing up in the library list). I know that I can use "Library|NewFolder" to add a single pre-existing target folder to the Library...
