    Lightroom Presets

    I have never used a LR Preset or Plug-in so in this area, I am a newbie. Is there a place to find a wide variety of Presets to import that are for creative purposes? I haven't been able to find what I am looking for. My goal is to find a Preset that will simulate wet plate collodion and possibly...

    Placing image off center in photo

    Thanks. I think you are correct. I'm not particularly familiar with Photoshop however I'll give it a try. I'm working on a project so don't have much time for the inevitable learning curve.

    Placing image off center in photo

    Hello all: I am printing 3 up on a 8.5x11 paper, attempting to simulate 3 instax wide photos. I've created a user template for the outside dimensions of the photos. My question is how to place the photo in the space created so that the bottom margin is larger than the other 3 margins. If I use...

    Catalog not recognized

    Double click on the catalog file that you moved to let Lightroom know where it is. You only need to do this once; Lightroom should remember the location now (but do check that in the preferences). You can now delete that new catalog that Lightroom created. It will be in your Pictures folder in a...

    Catalog not recognized

    Thank you. I didn't move my catalog to a new drive. I moved the computer and the hard drive with the catalog to a new location. Then I reconnected the hard drive to the computer, opened LR and found the screen with instruction to Import. So under these conditions, do I follow your instructions...

    Catalog not recognized

    My catalog and images are on a separate hard drive. I just moved the drive back to my original computer. When I open LR it says "Click Import to begin." As I recall in the past when I attached the drive, and opened LR my images were all there. Is selecting "Import" the right way to get my...

    Deleting photos in Download folder on import

    Thanks. I didn't know this security existed. I did check mine and they are all checked. Oddly, even though I haven't changed anything, the last 3 download folders are empty after the move. Mysterious. Hope it lasts.

    Deleting photos in Download folder on import

    I checked and the Downloads folder isn't locked. Until recently the photos in the Download folder were moved so when the import is complete, the folder was empty. It changed so I thought it must be a setting that I am unaware of changing.

    Deleting photos in Download folder on import

    I thought about that and checked it more than once. That's my dilemma.

    Deleting photos in Download folder on import

    Previously when importing photos into LR Classic from Photos from iCloud, after import, the photos in the Download folder on my hard disk were moved and therefore no longer in the Download folder. Some setting must have changed because I am using Move in LR, not Copy, however the photos remain...

    John: For now, I would like to export just a few recently taken photos. I am on the screen where the photos are selected. Where is the "Export as" choice on LR Mobile?

    export dng

    Thanks for your reply. The Edit Like a Pro book (Oct 2021) isn't helping me with my roadblocks. I want to export them to my LR Classic on my computer so I can edit them there. I have the photos selected on the IPhone. Export as, Original is selected. When I select Share to... I have the the...

    Using 2 computers in different locations

    Thank you for a quick reply. I have a few questions. Is there a reason to be using Smart Previews for the first solution ? Lightroom Classic (LrC) on your second computer should be transparent to what you left on the master computer. What does it mean to be transparent to what I left on the...

    Using 2 computers in different locations

    I will be using 2 different computer in separate locations, not on the same network. One in my studio, one at home. I have fairly good bandwidth in both locations. I may move back and forth a few times a week. I think the best solution is for me to carry a portable hard drive from one to the...

    kindle app for mac

    I just found out the answer. You go to System Preferences, to Security and Privacy, go to General tab. Select Allow apps downloaded from App Store and identified developers. Click on Allow. It takes you to the app that has been disallowed. You can then click on Allow. Then the installer pops up...

    My photos are missing

    I will put the most recent LR files in a folder which I will put into Pictures. Since I have so many LR files on my computer, should I put only the ones with the most recent date in that folder I'm creating? What should I do with all those other folders dangling out there on my hard drive...

    My photos are missing

    I did open LR Classic with the latest catalog so I think I am fine with that problem. I did it by dragging what I think is the last catalog to the Desktop and opened it from there. I am now running Catalina. 10.15.4. Now I would like to know where I should have LR files and which files I...

    My photos are missing

    Here is the bottom part of the screenshot of Mac HD. In this situation I don't know why the files are in Archive as opposed to Backups. Thanks for your help.

    My photos are missing

    It would have been better if I had identified Previews and Sync as .Preview and .Sync, file extensions. Attached is a screenshot of the location of the latest file and the Spotlight results. May 2nd is the day I installed the new computer so that date isn't helpful. I can start the old computer...

    My photos are missing

    Since I wrote the post on April 24th I had to replace my Mac with a new IMac 27". Therefore I don't have to use the "test user." My hard drive is now listed in the Finder. The attached image is the message I received when I clicked on the catalog with the most recent date. The main catalog...
