    If no Color Labels and use LrW ➞LrC, better solution for mobile labeling than keywords?

    Having just set up LrW to use the Lr camera in the Lr App in my attempt to streamline my iPhone photography workflow, I also just found out LrW does not support Color Labels, which I use extensively in LrC to mark the development status of each photo. (If interested: Don't Delete; Develop...

    Is there any way to set up a Smart Collection that will show Photos which have no keywords other than A or B or C? I tried using Any Filter, but I haven't understood the syntax.

    Library module Paste _Keywords_ From Previous ... How to?

    What is the simplest way to do for Keywords what the command "Photo ▹ Develop Settings ▹ Paste Settings From Previous" does for develop settings? I can't find this as a command (or mentioned in this forum). I would use it enough to write a Keyboard Maestro macro for it. For that, I need a...

    Menu command and/or keyboard shortcut for Set Poster Frame?

    I write macros in Keyboard Maestro to automate many tasks I face in Lightroom. I would like to automate setting the poster frame of a video at the current insertion point. The only way I know to access this command is via the unconventional drop-down menu that shows on the far right of the...

    Still generating conflicts in metadata. How to compare disk v. catalog?

    Even after resolving all metadata conflicts (I got no conflicts over the course of several opening/closings of Lightroom and several reboots of my computer, Lightroom continues to create/find conflicts in metadata. (Afaik, I'm not doing anything that might trigger these. No satellite or...

    Gah — used copy of Catalog & Catalog over three days. How to merge/recover?

    I screwed up. I moved a large Catalog to a new drive, launched Lightroom by double-clicking the Catalog file on that drive, and assumed that LR would now default to this Catalog. Which is does when you launch Lightroom via the Lightroom program. I overlooked that I launch Lightroom from...

    Is there a way to tell when LR is done writing XMP files?

    Is there a way to tell when LR is done writing XMP files? I have Lightroom set up to do this because I lost work once with a corrupted Catalog. When I'm doing Catalog maintenance, it would help me to know when Lightroom is done writing the XMP files. Thx.

    Huge catalogs ... is SSD advantageous?

    Hi. I have two _very large_ image catalogs (one is over 1,000,000 Photos, the other just under; nothing special, I'm doing some experimental artwork). Simple (?) question: what is the fastest storage, other than an SSD system drive (which I have) on which to keep them? The answer may be just...

    Setting up variation on Travel Catalog

    I'm setting up a variation on a Travel Catalog, loosely based on what The Lightroom Queen calls the "Import from a Temporary Catalog" method of working on two machines (The Missing FAQ, pp. 492 ff.). My goal is to have a satellite Catalog (with keywords) into which I can import and work on...

    Sync sync sync syncing interfering with macros.

    I'm using several macros as I work with Lightroom (all written in and executed by the excellent Keyboard Maestro). These worked flawlessly until yesterday. Since then, they have mostly failed. In Lightroom I notice that there are several (even as many as a dozen) "Sync" commands in my "Edit ▹...

    Map of keyboard shortcuts?

    Can anyone point me to a map of Lightroom keyboard shortcuts? I have the Lightroom Queen's handy list as a PDF — I'm looking for a way to determine the key bindings by key (rather than by function). I will use it to assign plug-in shortcuts as sensibly as possible, while not over-riding or...

    Easy way to create hundreds of Smart Folders?

    I'm porting several large and one huge database from Aperture to Lightroom (and I'm happy to make the switch — they each have their strengths, and I'm enjoying almost everything about Lightroom). One task facing me is creating new Smart Collections. I need to make at least a couple hundred...
