    Catalogs Smart Preview Catalog File

    Johan, To clarify, once I connect the new external HD to my new iMac, I double-click the catalog file to open LR - even though the new computer was just set up and I don't have the LR app on it yet?

    Catalogs Smart Preview Catalog File

    Thanks Johan, much appreciated. Once all my photos and catalog files are safely on the new external drive, my next action will be to unmount the drive and remount to my new iMac. Once I download LR to the new computer, do you know if LR will automatically show my photos - or will I have to...

    Operating System: MAC OS High Sierra Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Classic Hello, I'm in the process of moving my photos from an old external hard drive to a new one. I've been going through and creating Smart Previews for all the photos. When I check my catalog files on...

    DSLR Tether to iPad

    Thanks John, I actually bought the Case Air wireless device and returned it. Mainly because it was slow, unreliable and mounted to the hot shoe where I need my strobe trigger to be.

    DSLR Tether to iPad

    Thanks for the feedback. So it looks like I can't use a tether tools cable to directly connect my Canon 5D Mark IV to my iPad like you can with a laptop. Hopefully in the future, wouldn't that be great? I did hear about the SD card transfer method, which is great when I'm done with the shoot...

    DSLR Tether to iPad

    Mobile Operating System: iOS Desktop Operating System: OS Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): LR Classic Hello, I have had nothing but frustration tethering from my camera to my iPad via wifi. Does anyone know if it's possible to tether directly via a cable? I don't want to buy a...

    Client Access to Photos

    Hello, I'm an event and headshot photographer looking for a Dropbox alternative to deliver final edited images. Does LR have a web gallery of some sort that I can post to per client so they can access and download their photos? Thanks! Scott

    Export LR Mobile Collection to Instagram or FB

    Thank you for your response! Yes, I think the LR mobile app simply isn't capable of what I'd like it to do. If I could download a photo shoot to my computer, throw my faves into a collection, then go to my mobile device the next day and simply share that collection to FB or Instagram. Seems like...

    Export LR Mobile Collection to Instagram or FB

    Is that from an Android device? My iPhone/iPad doesn't have Custom Order as a selection.

    Export LR Mobile Collection to Instagram or FB

    Thank you Victoria, I'm realizing I wasn't quite clear, I apologize. My workflow is photographing an event at night, edit my images in LR on my iMac, then throw them into a Collection for outputting. Once I have them in a Collection, I custom sort the images to best tell the story of the event...

    Export LR Mobile Collection to Instagram or FB

    Thank you Victoria! That worked great. As a follow up question, do you know why Collections on my iPhone/iPad don't reflect the custom order I put them in on my iMac? They can only sort by image capture time.

    Export LR Mobile Collection to Instagram or FB

    Thanks for the reply, I'm beginning to think something is wrong with my app. I can easily share one photo, just not a Collection. I don't have the "More" prompt as you mentioned above. When I'm in the main LR Mobile view that shows all my Collections and tap on the 3 dot icon (...) next to my...

    Export LR Mobile Collection to Instagram or FB

    It seems like the most basic of uses for LR Mobile, and yet, I can't seem to activate this function. After I edit a photo shoot in LR on my desktop, I create Collections for Facebook and Instagram. What I want to do is go to that synced Collection on my iPhone or iPad and simply export to my...

    LR Mobile Collection to Instagram & Facebook

    It's easy to post a single photo, but Is it possible to post an entire Collection from LR Mobile to Instagram or Facebook? And while I'm at it, when I create a Collection on my desktop and re-arrange the photos in a custom order, I then sync to LR Mobile, but why does LR Mobile not display the...

    Lightroom Catalog Workflow

    Thank you for the feedback, and great point on the CCC backup drive. I only envisioned a TB3 drive to keep in the new TB3 ecosystem, but for sure a less expensive USB option is prudent. Going back to the location for the LR catalog, I've heard some photographers chose a small external SSD...
