    Cropping iPhone photos: how to deal with over sharpening?

    Hey all, For years on, I have been struggling when cropping iPhone photos. As we all know from our Lightroom workflows, the general best practice is: first you crop, then edit and then you apply sharpening. But the iPhone photos (the jpegs or HEICs) come "as is" as a final product, processed...

    Waiting out the coloured beach ball (Mac) pays off

    So today I had been working on a lot of images. As I have had catalogs crash on me before, I should have remembered to carefully close the catalog, create a backup and reopen the catalog before doing anything unusual. But I forgot. And I decided to experiment with different source drives to see...

    LrC 10.1 Mac: navigating in film strip not sync'ed to grid (and vice versa)

    Hey all, I haven't done LR work for a couple of months, but I did install the updates from time to time. I'm on 10.1 now (Mac) and today I wanted to do some library work. I encountered a weird issue while browsing some folders. The issue: Normally, when I select a photo in the film strip, that...

    12-16TB external storage: (1) how fast is enough? (2) move from NAS to DAS. (3) bit rot issues?

    Hello all, This is a question about which external (non-NAS) storage to get for safe and fast Lightroom operation: Q1: How fast is fast enough for Lightroom? Consider the circumstance that I will be upgrading my 2013 MacBook Pro to a Silicon 16" Macbook Pro in 1-2 years. Q2: What storage...

    Workaround for very slow video browsing performance in LR classic

    Hi folks, I am experiencing very slow video browsing in LR Classic as most of my source files are on a NAS. Even with fast Gigabit Ethernet (wired) it takes many seconds to go from one video to the next, let alone watching, which will take yet another many seconds to even start a video and it...

    Export Exporting videos - metadata is lost. Photos export fine.

    Hi folks, I am trying to export a video file and retain metadata. Won't work. Right after export I use Bridge to examine the exported file. I don't get ratings, flags, keywords, the bunch. When I cross check and export a photo with the exact same export settings, I get all my metadata in the...

    LR gets creation date/time wrong on import

    After importing a bunch of iPhone photos into LR classic on my Mac Pro running High Sierra, I discovered that tens out of 350 photos had the wrong creation date/time. My version was 9.0 so I upgraded to 9.1: same issue. Then I tried a vintage LR5 version: same issue. All three LR versions...

    LR Classic 9.1 on MBP 15” late 2013: fan at top speed continuously

    Hello all, Fan quickly starts blowing towards top speed upon starting LR 9.1 with my precious years-and-years-upgraded main LR catalog. Activity monitor shows a process called WindowServer rising to 90-100% CPU. After quitting LR this process goes down a bit in CPU% but keeps active at much...

    Apple photo library workflow for my kids? Apple expert question (no LR)

    Hi all, I have three kids who all have personal iPhones and iPads now. As expected, the flow of photos is unstoppable. Must be a genetic disorder ;). Anyway I am deciding on a workflow for them when they run out of space on their phones. I have tried to be concise here but failed regrettably...

    Video import issue - iPhone 6s + iPad mini 5 only - very peculiar

    Extremely peculiar import issue. Videos from my daughter’s iPhone 6s or iPad mini 5 cannot be imported into LR classic CC. LR displays a common error message that something is wrong with the dynamic link media server. JPEGs import fine. - I tried several iPhones and LR imports videos happily...

    Will I ever make it? Processing older collections blues...

    Should have made a poll out of this really...;) Anyway does this sound familiar to any of you: you come back from a shoot, select a bunch of keepers, do PP work on some to get high on your photography addiction (YMMV) and make a plea to yourself that this time you'll finish the keywords etc...

    Macbook Pro late 2013 goes black at 45% battery charge when using LR

    Is this a sign that the battery is going bad? This behaviour has started about a year ago when creating previews or exports, on battery power (no AC adapter connected). Screen gently fades to black and nothing happens until I plug into mains and even then I need to beg and hit the power button...

    Smallest possible previews file/folder?

    Hello all, I use LR Classic CC on a Macbook Pro 15" Retina Late 2013 w/ 16GB RAM. Before exploring the features of syncing to LR CC I ran out of disk space on my Macbook, partly because I had 100GB worth of Previews that I seemingly needed. I tried to optimise but to no avail. To make it...

    Hello all, After lots of LR updates on from LR6 to now Classic CC and numerous OSX -> MacOS and dot releases I still have the same issue, with three iPhone incarnations. #1: There are no photos to import, when clearly there are and disconnecting / reconnecting iPhone lightning cable does help...

    LR5 and LR CC sharing the same Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom folder?

    I am running a registered LR5 and a new subscription of LR CC on the same machine (Macbook) under the same account. Lightroom stores settings in the Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom folder. Both versions use the same folder, but the CC version has some different/new subfolders and...

    LR CC 2015.5.1 on OSX 10.11.3 keeps crashing

    i upgraded to LR CC from LR5. I have not been able to work for more than three or five minutes. Had to revert to LR5. The problem is the coloured beach ball that comes up inevitably at a certain point and then never goes away. Always need to force quit. I am wondering if this is a common...

    I paid for CC, still get "trial 29 days left" notification

    I finally bit the bullit an ordered - and paid - a LR+PS CC license yesterday. I got the CC icon in the menu bar (OSX 10.11.3) and downloaded the apps from there (LR CC and PS CC). On my account page it says I have an order and everything. But the apps still say they are trial versions. Do we...

One Mac (iMac) has the master catalog, containing all of his life's work. The other Mac is a laptop containing a smaller catalog, used for photo shoots in...

    The balance between giving and taking

    Hello all, As a long time user of Lightroom, and member here since 2010, my knowledge of Lightroom developed to a level where I feel at home in the software and feel at home here on the forum. At some point I found myself helping others more than being served. Giving more than taking, so to...

    Giving back to the community, but how?

    Hi all, In the past years, I've been giving advice to LR users that came here for help. My advice generally aims to get users to organise their photo library as intended and designed by Adobe: usage of keywords rather than renaming folders, so that they can benefit from the powerful features...

    Slide scanning equipment: what to buy?

    I have 10000 slides that still need to be digitised. As I'll be at home for about 6 months due to two operations, I have some time to kill. If I like the scan results, I may even set up a local slide scanning service. I will need: - slide feeder and automatic scanning - reasonable scan quality...

    Smart Previews file size and date don't change

    I ran a search here and on Google, nothing came up. I run LR 5.6 on OSX 10.8.5 ML. My Smart Previews file size is 3,67GB, date is Saturday oct 11th. When adding Smart Previews, the file size and date don't change. Very odd. Free drive space does decrease. When I backup the entire folder (LR...
