    2015.2.1 lost control to change thumbnail size

    Yep, tool bar was missing. My settings disappeared during the migration to windows 10 and it never occurred to me that the tool bar was optional since I've always had it on and use it frequently. Embarrassing.

    2015.2.1 lost control to change thumbnail size

    Previously there was a button on the panel between the filmstrip and grid where one could add the thumbnail size control as well as some other optional things in that panel. Now the panel is locked down and nothing can be added to it and the ability to change the size of the thumbnails hidden...

    published status in collection folder view

    Well, when you right click on a publish collection icon, your choices include create gallery and create folder, and since on smugmug they are called folders, that's how I think of them. Right click also provides a choice of "duplicate published collection set," so I collection set is also...

    published status in collection folder view

    There is a handy feature in the publish collection area: If I click on a folder containing 1 or more publish collections, all the images in all the galleries contained in that folder show up. If I then click Publish Now, LR will work it's way through, publishing gallery by gallery. However...

    Anchor a panorama?

    Is there any way to tell LR (or PS), which of a series of images to be stitched which one I want in the center? I need a cylindrical result, not perspective or spherical. The series is a 360 degree sequence, with 20% overlap. I am doing a series of panoramas of the same scene over time. How...

    Panorama creation problem

    I have seen this and similar anomalies. I had one with 8 images that PS handled fine, but LR only merged 5 of them, and in fact merged 2 and 4, skipping 3! (At a quick glance it looked ok; trees and shrubs) On the other hand, the last 20 or so, including several with 24 images, were handled...

    Lightroom CC Issues after Install – For Windows Users

    Photo Merge - Panorama fails to merge properly taken set of images. LR 6 only finds 6 of 8 images; exporting to PS and using default photomerge finds all 8. Or tells me it doesn't have enough information to do the merge, yet PS works with the same images. I've been working on a series of 360...

    LR 5.7.1 locking up whole system

    It turned out to be a failing disk drive, the drive that had the catalog on it. I had to set up the disk check tool, which had to be run on boot up because the disk had the user profiles on it. (explorer, right click on drive in left panel, select tools and the "check disk for errors" tool.) It...

    LR 5.7.1 locking up whole system

    Yes, I had tried that. The result was that after the splash screen, I got the top and bottom panels and the grey center area of LR, no sidebars. The splash remained in the center area and LR was non-responsive. And not much longer after that, everything else locked up again.

    LR 5.7.1 locking up whole system

    The past few days I've been struggling with LR going into the splash screen on startup and then freezing there. For the next 10 minutes or so, I can work with other programs, but after about 10 minutes, everything else I have open freezes and becomes non-responsive, and I cannot start any new...

    spell check captions and long captions

    I am working on a project that requires long captions on many of the photos, preferably broken up into paragraphs. Is there any alternative to the little text box in the metadata panel?

    editing multiple captions at one time doesn't seem to work any more.

    No, I always have the grid view on when I change multiple titles or captions because I want to make sure of the selection. Titles work sometimes, but captions don't.

    editing multiple captions at one time doesn't seem to work any more.

    In the past, I'd often give the same caption to a set of selected photos. Recently I noticed that the caption is set only for the target photo, and I have to copy and paste one by one to get the captions copied over. I used to get a warning about applying to multiple items, but that no longer...

    titles disappearing and other odd behaviors

    And now I've run into a keyword bug: I'd edited keywords in a gallery, then moved to another gallery. The keyword input box shows the keywords of the last photo I'd been working on in the previous gallery, not the keywords that should have been there. I see that there are a number of other...

    titles disappearing and other odd behaviors

    LR 5.6 on Windows 7 64bit; 115,000 images Several times in the past few days, I've entered a title and when I hit enter, it disappears. I have to shut down LR and restart before I can get it to accept a title for that image. I can go to another image and the title field works fine, but when I...

    LR 5.3 intermittent not responding

    I did discover my cache was only 2 GB, so I bumped it to 30. I also revised the rules in the collection to limit to one year, the one I'm currently looking at has 5400 photos. I also used the task manager to bump the application priority to high Seems to be pretty close to back to normal...

    LR 5.3 intermittent not responding

    I've been using LR a long time, upgraded to 5.3 when it came out. Today, while doing a task I've done before, namely create a large smart collection (25,000 images) and going through it to update keywords. I click on a thumbnail and the whirling not responding circle comes up briefly. I shift...

    Rotate crop

    In the past, if I open an image in develop, hit the crop button, hit the letter x, the crop will rotate 90 degrees. For example I have a series of photos with horizontal orientation out of which I want to crop an 8x10 vertical. My approach in the past was to crop one the way I want, then sync...

    Publish to smugmug stopped working

    I got the attached message when I attempted to publish a new gallery. I've not converted to the new smugmug yet, and I'm still using LR 4.4 Any suggestions?

    Need to smart collect all images published in a time frame

    Thanks, that does the trick, though I haven't gone through and made I don't have any vowelless published collection names. So "Contains" doesn't mean "search for string that contains the following"? Is there a formal definition of these search operators somewhere?

    Need to smart collect all images published in a time frame

    I have a need to build a smart collection that has all published images with capture dates in a certain time frame. In the rules for smart collections I see Published and Published Via. but the only thing I can associate to them are words that "contain", "don't contain", etc. Is there any way...

    Capture time sort incorrect

    I've found that if I import the MTS files, a message shows up that there is a metadata conflict. That doesn't make sense, not on the original import. But, if I copy the file to the folder where i want it and then do synchronize on that folder, the message about metadata conflicts does not show up.

    Capture time sort incorrect

    It turns out the problem is that the image whose capture date time is wrong is a video. The only date in the EXIF IPTC display is the metadata date. I have no idea where the "capture" date is coming from that the sort uses. The date for this file in windows explorer is 6/8/2013 6:02pm, which...

    Capture time sort incorrect

    I sorted by capture time and discovered that an image with a capture time date/time of <date> 12:03:51 PM is listed before one with same date 12:06:15 AM. This is not correct and is causing me a lot of problems organizing shoots that include images and video captured after midnight...
