    OMG what's the update done?

    Hi Victoria Many thanks. I just don't understand everything seems greyed out barring a very few. My catalog is 12 years old. The photos appear on my hard drives. But in the catalong not even greyed out images appear after October 2020

    OMG what's the update done?

    I got a message to upgrade the catalog and clicked on it and and a new V10-v11 was built. However virtually none of the photos are showing up. I've tried this twice with same results. This is across several drives and the most recent of my drives only spome of 2020 photos and none of 2021. I...

    Sync - delete all? Advice on starting again.

    B But I've done this and it just takes you to the web. From there there seems no button or global way to delete everything apart from selecting all photos and deleting and then deleting again from the deleted folder. Very clumsy. Anyway I have done all the above and LR still says syncing. Seems...

    Sync - delete all? Advice on starting again.

    I have never got to grips with syncing. I toyed with it when it became available and now I have a bunch of stuff I don't really want in the cloud and wondered how to go about deleting all the Lightroom synced images. I presume all images are kept safe on the original hard drives? SO I want to...

    Want to find a replacement to Zenfolio

    Thanks for all your comments and sorry for the delay. As my renewal with Zenfolio is coming up soon I have decided to stay with them another year. I must say they were very helpful when I contacted them and have given me a decent discount. I have often fund them responsive to tech help so again...

    Want to find a replacement to Zenfolio

    I'm looking to replace my website currently managed with Zenfolio. I'm cutting the content down as I don't do (or do very few) weddings and want to focus on a portfolio site with E-commerce abilities. What are your suggestions for sites that can work with Lightroom Classic? Many thanks John

    Need to sign in everytime now????

    Thanks all and sorry for the slow response. I had to call support and I had to sign out and back in to creative Cloud. I wasn't aware that CC was linked to the running of LR. Coming from old desktop Classic I find this all sinister, like someone's watching all the time, plus the fact that there...

    Need to sign in everytime now????

    Recently started receiving messages to login with Adobe - email and password . Is this a new protocol for using Lightroom? It's damn annoying (chiefly because I can never remember password) and last week there seemed to be a complete outage and was unable to login at all for several hours...

    Ok So it's saving the file, but when I upload is says file is too big (it isn't at 3.5mb) or is it that I've generated a KMZ file instead of a KML file?

    Map with photo info

    This is exactly what I want! Thanks How on earth do you set this plugin up to do this? I've tried and tried but the instructions are not great. I think I've configured the Google cloud bit right but not sure about the plugin. Could you show me how please?

    Map with photo info

    I'm still struggling on this. Mostly my biggest issue is that the android phone I was creating GPS coordinates with produced some inaccurate results due to a an error I've now fixed. So I need to go through all my photos in LR and drag and drop the ones with missing or poor GPS coordinates. Then...

    Map with photo info

    Thanks for the reply and sorry for my delay. I don't see how this helps at all. Firstly if you use a quick collection then in the filmstrip in maps you cannot see any other photos. What I need is some way on a wider view of a map to show all the photos with either index number or file number...

    Map with photo info

    I'd like to show the photo picture reference numbers or at least index numbers on so I can print out a screen grab for a magazine editor. She needs to know the location on a map of the photos I've taken. Any ideas if LR can do this or any other ideas?

    Crop presets - any more?

    I am frustrated by the lack of crop presets. Obviously it's got the standard ones but I'd like to have more that I can assign myself. Is there any way to do this? John

    Definitely on both counts. I can select the photo in Develop then switch to Library mode and the photo changes.
