    Import Filtering

    Is there any way to filter photos on import? I often get handed a full photo session of thousands of images of which I only need to adjust some of them that have already been rated in Bridge. I know that this probably isn't a common case, but it would save me a couple of extra steps before I get...

    Render Standard Previews

    Is it unreasonable for me to think that taking 2'+ minutes to render 97' standard previews is too long? Is there any way to speed it up? Lr is using a fraction of my computer's power to render previews.

    Does Lightroom 2 have any sort of logging function where you might be able to tell if a file had been exported or something like that?

    Raw Files Not Showing Up

    I have a group of raw files that I edited in Photoshop and saved to the same folder. The client wants color and black and white, so I made virtual copies of the retouched PSDs in order to make B&W versions. Now the raw files are no longer showing in the catalog and won't import. I'm not sure if...

    CS4 Demo

    I'm not sure if Photoshop CS4 is a must have for me, so I was thinking of trying out the demo. Does anyone know if it will screw things up for my CS3 installation?

    Printing Question

    Is there any way to pad a cell or maybe add a stroke that isn't at the edge of the image? I have some images that are 8.5x11" and I want to float them in an 11x14" area. My paper is 13x19 though. I would like to be able to add a stroke or cropping guides at the 11x14 size. The best that I can...

    What Does This Mean?

    I have this on a few images, and I can't figure out what it means. Clicking it doesn't produce any action, and there is nothing obviously wrong with the images. I haven't been able to find it using any terms that I can think of.

    Opening in Photoshop Over a Network

    I've been messing around with keeping my images on a HD attached to my G4 and accessing them over an ethernet network on my MBP. Whenever I open images into Photoshop, I get a dialog box when I try to save that says that the image is in use by another app and can't be saved. Does anyone know a...

    Reading Metadata from Files in LR2 painfully slow. Right now I'm 15 minutes into reading metadata from about 6'' images with 2'% to go. The xmp files were created in an earlier version of ACR. Would that make any difference?

    Installing 2.0

    Just wondering if it's possible to install LR2 and keep 1.4 on the same machine. I'm in the middle of a large job and I don't want to update that catalog yet, so I'd like to keep that in LR1 for now.

    Tethering in Mac OS 10.5

    I was looking over the 3''+ new features in 1'.5 and noticed "Improved Tethered Camera Support" in Image Capture. What do they mean by improved – any? Has anyone compared it to the EOS Utility? Does the EOS Utility work in 1'.5?

    Localized Corrections

    I hope that they add some sort of contrast adjustment to the localized corrections before the final release. It's not that often that I want to brighten something without also changing the contrast.

    rob Galbraith on Aperture 2.1

    Rob Galbraith DPI: Image editing plug-ins the centrepiece of Aperture 2.1 As I understand it, Aperture has to process out the file to apply plugins. I went and watched the Dodge and Burn tutorial on Apple's website. I don't understand why I would want to bother with that. If I have to process...

    Selections in the Develop Module

    Is there a way to deselect all but the active image in the Develop module. The selection options in the Library module don't carry over to the Develop module. :x The best that I can figure is to command click the photo that I want to deselect it and then click on it to select just that photo.

    I was wondering if anyone knows the significance of this date. It seems like a very specific date to be used as an illustration for date layouts.

    Slideshow Pro Director

    I was wondering if any of the SSP users use the Director and if you think it's worth it. I'm redesigning my website and using SSP for the galleries. I bought SSP for LR(I may get it for Flash as well). It's not too hard to manually edit the galleries, but SSP Director seems like it would make...
