    Lightroom Slideshow Export

    What the little program does is works out from the file extension of the parameter given, in this case index.html so .html, what program Windows needs to run. In this case it should run the PC's default web browser with index.html as the first page and viola, an auto running web gallery.

    Lightroom Slideshow Export

    It does. What you need is a Shell Exec program copied to the root of the CD/DVD. I found mine on a Microsoft Office CD when looking to see how they ran a web page directly. The file is called SHELEXEC.EXE. There may be copies scattered around the Internet. Best bet is to check any software CDs...

    Moving masters from Lightroom to Bridge

    Are you using the option to Edit in Photoshop from the Lightroom menu? When using this option, Lightroom creates a photo file in the same folder as the original with the same name as the original plus "-Edit", of the file type you specify in Preferences, TIFF or PSD. It then imports the new...

    Horizontal Scroll Lua Gallery V1.0

    Cheers Sean. I think it was your original that I poured over and it gave me a far better understanding of how Lightroom and these work together. Let's see if I can understand the Lua version :shock:

    Exif data not available after exporting

    Hi Karyn What file type are you exporting to? If I export to TIFF, Windows doesn't show date and time which means it may not be there. If I export to JPEG, date and time is included in the file.

    "Find" command applied to Presets??

    The short answer is no. The longer answer is a question. What are you trying to achieve as there may be another way?

    I use YYYYMMDDHHMM_ followed by the camera generated filename. For scans or photos from friends and family, I generally set DDHHMM to '''''' if not in the metadata and make an educated guess at YYMM. Batch rename works well here. Renaming is the first part of my workflow and has focused the...

    Graphics card requirements

    On a PC, it uses DirectX IIRC. On a Mac, I can't remember.

    Remote Keywording

    Yes you can. Select the folders or photos you want to work with and export them to a new catalog, including previews. If you want to use existing keywords that are not attached to any of the photos in the exported catalog, you'll need to export keywords from the Metadata menu, which creates a...

    Lightroom Catalog...1, 2, or many?

    I prefer the single catalog idea because if you use keywords or other metadata for finding specific selections of photos, you can't search across multiple catalogs.

    Metadata - inserting Fullpath to image into 'File Name' field

    Hi Johnathon A question and an answer: How would you use the full path to the file in the metadata? There may be a better way. The operating system won't allow slashes in file names because they are used by the OS as directory separators in a path. Lightroom treats certain characters as...

    Importing raw Pentax files

    Can you supply more information about the problem?

    Could a rotation please count as an 'edit'?

    I meant Adobe has been asked for it but appear to have done nothing with the request. A quick search will turn up this thread now :D

    Lost External editor

    That's good to know, thanks. Glad you got it resolved.

    Minimize Embedded Metadata - Issue

    Actually, it won't. It will have the same number of x and y pixels you asked for but the size that prints or displays will depend on the software using the file. As I said, my Windows uses a default of 96dpi if the data is missing. PSP uses a default of 3''. Print from both without making any...

    Minimize Embedded Metadata - Issue

    From my own testing it appears that "Minimise embedded metadata" omits the dpi setting. My configuration of Windows assumes 96dpi and PSP assumes 3''dpi for the same exported photo. Windows appears to use the dpi set on Display Settings, Settings, Advanced, General tab. Now that's what I call...

    Could a rotation please count as an 'edit'?

    It has been asked for but has never been implemented.

    Use TIFF or PSD for external editor (CS3)

    No suggestions as I don't use PS in any form but a couple of questions that might help you decide. 1. Is there anything you can do in CS3 with PSD that you can't do with TIFF and vice versa? 2. Are the PSDs smaller than the TIFFs, giving a potential saving in disk space?

    sorting in grid mode and stacks

    It may be a bug in the sort. I've seen some incorrect 'A-Z Sort by File Name' results in 1.3.1. What are the file names involved?

    Lost External editor

    Did you recently un-install a previous version of PS after installing your current version? That seems to be the main cause of this problem because the un-install removes a registry key Lightroom looks for. If so, there is a registry hack if you are comfortable with regedit although the easiest...

    LR backup location?

    I've tested this with "Next time Lightroom starts" and "Every time Lightroom starts" and when the dialog pops up telling you that a backup has been requested, there is a "Choose" button next to the backup path. Click this and navigate to where you want the backup to be. The setting is 'sticky'...
