    Can I write metadata without date time stamps to disk

    Are you sure. I thought the "Any Filter" plug in work on a Lightroom Catalog. Check your problem with John Ellis.

    Borders/Frames on export

    LR/Mogrify is afaik the only plugin that can do the job. I've never heard of any one having problems installing. What issues are you encountering?

    Can I write metadata without date time stamps to disk

    First, I have to ask “Why do you think you need this?” All of the metadata is stored in the catalog and is used for derivative (exported) images. It is not needed or required for the original image which (IMO) should only display the original metadata. The original image should only be accessed...

    iPad/Lightroom workflow while traveling thoughts.

    Other that the functional difference between the Lightoom mobile app and the Lightroom for Computer app, there would be no differences or problems. When I was testing the idea that I could replace my 13” MBP with a 12.9” iPadPro, I used Lightroom on the MBP and determined that having more than...

    Is LR Mobile the best choice?

    If you are creating a sharable site for your wife’s social Media, why would you want to include client data? You might want to take a look at The Adobe Portfolio website and process. You can create fairly sophisticated web pages in Portfolio and link them into you own domain. This might make a...

    Is LR Mobile the best choice?

    To use Lightroom Classic most efficiently, all you should need is one catalog for all of your images. If you merge all of your catalogs into a Master Catalog and use collections for organization instead of folders, you would start using Lightroom Classic as intended and both Lightroom and...

    Is LR Mobile the best choice?

    Adobe does not charge for storage for images that are sync'ed FROM Lightroom Classic. The reason for this is that the full size image isn not sent but a proxy Smart Preview is generated. This Proxy image has a long edge of 2560 px and is suitable for use by mobile devices. These image proxies...

    Is LR Mobile the best choice?

    If you want your wife's phone to have access to all of your images, then install Lightroom Mobile on HER phone and sync the shared Lightroom Classic collections to the cloud. This will place a suitably sized image in the Adobe Cloud and grouped by Sync'd Lightroom Classic Collections (called...

    CATALOG Backup fails

    Check to see if the Backup destination has changed. The default folder is a folder that is adjacent to the Catalog file. If you attempt a BU and the selected BU volume is not mounted, the BU reverts to the local default location. Also the recent releases of MacOS have tightened security. You...

    Tagging of photos with colour or rating

    You can color code Collections (these do not replace individual labels though) You could put images in a red colored Collection and put the same images in a blue colored collection ignoring the color label on the images. A side note about color labels. The ITPC field called “label” is a text...

    The visual difference between a RAW file open in Lightroom Classic and Capture NX-D

    The Image that you see in Lightroom is edited just as the image you see in Capture NX-D. The difference is that the Lightroom image is lightly edited initially while the NX-D image is a fully edited JPEG rendition. Adobe expects you to use its more robust editing tools to fully develop the...

    The visual difference between a RAW file open in Lightroom Classic and Capture NX-D

    The image that you see is not a RAW file. RAW file contains values for Photo Sites from the sensor. These photosite values need to be combined to produce RGB color pixels. Capture NX-D uses the same camera adjustments to produce the RGB JPEG that you see in the Camera viewing screen and in the...

    Portable Lightroom Classic Catalog

    There are three (main) parts to Lightroom. The Catalog file contains all of the work that you do in Lightroom including the metadata for each image imported. Along side the Catalog file are the Previews folders These function similarly to the Photos “library” folder package. The second part is...

    Using an iPad as a graphics tablet

    Apple does/can integrate the iPad as a secondary display. It functions as a second monitor extending the desktop as would another attached monitor. AFAIK is does not function like a Wacom tablet. With my iMac, I use a Magic Trackpad which has many characteristics as a Wacom Tablet but is more...

    New Imported photos not showing in folders

    In Finder navigate to your user ID, open it and then select Desktop from the list of Folders present. The desktop folder should list the image files imported to that location by Lightroom Classic or a folder inside Desktop containing these images. To correct your import error, In the...

    Share Catalog between PCs (local and NAS location)

    I would not advise using multiple catalogs for the same images. If you want a subset of images of one machine, the use the “Export As a Catalog “ to create the subset catalog and then when finished use the “Import from another Catalog”. To merge the information (including new imported images)...

    Share Catalog between PCs (local and NAS location)

    The most recommended Lightroom Classic solution is to copy the master catalog file from one computer to the other ( The catalog can not reside on a network drive (NAS) I would suggest strongly that you move all of your cataloged image file to the NAS so that these are available to both PCs...

    'show import dialogue when a card is detected'

    I would check the security section of Preferences to make sure Lightroom Classic has full access to removable volumes.

    New Mac set up

    Actually, just the opposite is true. Adobe only offers one version of code. I migrated from an Intel Mac to an M1 Mac with those concerns. When the app opens, it determines whether the OS is Intel or an M1 based And loads Rosetta only of there is no M1 present. I did not need to reinstall...

    New Mac set up

    I can offer another option from Johan. Johan’s solution is great for you plan to keep all of your 400K images. If you can Identify your “keepers”, then isolate them in a collection, making sure that are are moved to the 2TB SSD and located (not missing) in the master Lightroom Catalog. Then...

    Photograph subscription 20GB

    To be perfectly clear, after purchasing the subscription, you install the Adobe Application manager and from that install Lightroom Classic. You can but are not required to, install Lightroom (for the Cloud), Photoshop and can sync Lightroom Classic to the 20GB storage plan. Sent from my iPad...

    Workflow using LR Classic, LR Mobile (IOS) and Apple Photos

    Apple Photos is also a photo database image manager. As such the specs overlap. If Photos is your only image database manager them sharing with others that use it is useful. In a Lightroom centric system, less so. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Character limit on filenames

    While the plug-in might not impose path limits, it might impose text field length limits for the field containing the file name. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Workflow using LR Classic, LR Mobile (IOS) and Apple Photos

    I have concluded that you should only use one photo manager. The Photos app and iCloud Photos is IMO more limiting the Lightroom and the Adobe Cloud. Lightroom for the Web and Adobe Portfolio offer a web based access to photo collections the go beyond that which is offered by Apple in the...

    Character limit on filenames

    I expect Jeffrey had to set a character limit on the field used for file manes in his plugin. Both Windows and MacOS file systems have length limits on path names including the name of the file at the end. Using long file names is never a good practice because of the other issues that it...
