    Thoughts on backing up Lightroom cloud?

    I'm finding myself using Lightroom cloud much more than Classic, so I'm looking for workarounds for the things I still use Classic for, to see if I can stop using it completely. One thing I still use Classic for is a local backup. It'd be great to hear your thoughts on the pros and cons of...

    More photos showing in mobile than elsewhere

    Lr on Android shows All Photos as 15,378. Web, desktop Cloud and Classic all show 14,590. All platforms show up as finished syncing. Before I go uninstalling and reinstalling Lr Android and risking losing the missing photos: do you think the missing 788 photos actually exist? Can you think of a...

    Library module What do you put in the IPTC State/Province field for the UK?

    After some Googling I gather that there is no standard for IPTC State/Province outside of the US. If you're in the UK, do you personally use it for county or for Wales, England etc? My photos with GPS coordinates get populated as Wales but I'm tempted to change them to counties to make them more...

    Forever syncing 3 photos

    Yesterday it got stuck showing "syncing 2 photos" and now it's gone up to 3. But if I filter by sync status I don't have any photos showing as syncing. Classic shows up as fully synced. It doesn't block anything else from syncing - it goes up to the number of photos I change + 3, syncs them...

    Imported images seem to get "stuck" in local storage

    When I import into Lr cloud, the originals get copied/cached at %AppData%\Local\Adobe\Lightroom CC\Data\xxxxxx\originals. So far, no surprises. But I have my local storage set to use a cache equal to 1% of free space (I just took it that low for testing) which should put the cache at about 400...

    Negative filters/searches: showing "not Synced and Backed Up"

    I'm trying to display all the photos that don't have full size originals in the cloud (originated from Classic), so I can reimport them in Lr Cloud. The "Synced and Backed Up" filter shows "(676 filtered)" so I want to invert the filter to show which photos aren't fully synced. There's no...

    Virtual copies from Classic in LrCC

    I'm trying to come up with a workflow for using Classic and CC together, where I've got all the full quality originals stored in Lr cloud storage (because I thought, oh well my life just isn't complicated enough already!). When I'm not in a hurry to edit, I'll import into CC, wait for...

    How do I check all photos are in their right date-based folders?

    In the process of moving a load of photos to an external disk, I somehow copied a bunch into the wrong places. I was doing some of it within Lr, some of it outside of Lr and resyncing the folders (I know, I know, but the photos didn't have edits and it was the quickest way to tame the chaos!)...

    Sync Classic failed to sync some photos from Lr CC

    I've taken a bunch of photos with Lr Mobile on Android. Most of them synced into Classic just fine, but two failed. If you hover over the exclamation mark on the thumbnail it says "Lightroom has encountered problems reading this photo." I've checked Lightroom Web and they uploaded okay, it's...

    Develop module Identifying JPEGs in the develop module/loupe

    Operating System: Windows 10 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): 7.2 I'm trying to come up with a work-around to clearly remind me when I'm looking at or editing a JPEG. I have presets for raws that I wouldn't want to use on JPEGs and vice-versa, so I'd like to be reminded what...
