    Today, suddenly, my LR will not import photos!

    So—good news and bad news! The good news is that the problem is solved! Yay! :D The bad news, however, is that it now it suddenly works fine, just as suddenly as it stopped working the other day. There's no solution I found, nothing I did, nothing that changed in my hardware or software (at...

    Today, suddenly, my LR will not import photos!

    OK! Update! Although not specifically a solution or a positive update per se: today I tried importing photos again and the issue remained; however, the last attempt I didn't try to cancel nor did I quit LR, I just left it going and sort of forgot about it. Result: I just heard a ding in the...

    Today, suddenly, my LR will not import photos!

    Hi! Thanks for your input! You're right that sticking your hand in the system pot is asking for trouble; which is why I didn't permanently erase or move anything, I have everything backed up just in case. On the other hand, actually, I didn't just erase the framework file, I substituted the...

    Today, suddenly, my LR will not import photos!

    Sorry about that! I see it was an equivocal assertion. LR launches as it should normally, showing no errors at all, however, the issue persists even though there are no errors logged: it still doesn't import anything. What I meant by this detail was that, apparently, there's no issue with the...

    Today, suddenly, my LR will not import photos!

    I will say I did have an issue on Friday and Saturday, a rather big one, and perhaps this is somehow related (although, as I mentioned, my LR was working just fine yesterday, and Saturday and Friday, too...). Anyway, on Friday I tried to open Cinema 4D to work on a project I had been working on...

    Today, suddenly, my LR will not import photos!

    Hi, Hal, thanks for your response! Yeah—sorry, forgot to add that item too in my OP: To rule out an issue with my card reader I moved all the photos in question from my card to my Mac and there was no problem moving them. In fact, it reads my SD cards and writes to them as usual. I then ruled...

    Today, suddenly, my LR will not import photos!

    Today I woke up and wanted to start working on my photos (just as I do every morning) and, all of a sudden, after popping in an SD Card, the Import dialog opening on its own, me selecting the photos I want to import, and clicking on Import... nothing happens. I.e. the "importing photos" progress...

    LR becomes slow, crashes and then can't be reopened unless I reboot my computer

    Hi, Johan, yes, you're right, Macs can't write to NTFS, only read. But the way I've set up my LR, the photos from the NTFS disk are only being read; any changes are being written to the main Mac disk. However, the issue doesn't even occur when editing the photos, just when I'm trying to view the...

    LR becomes slow, crashes and then can't be reopened unless I reboot my computer

    I'm having severe issues with LR CC 2015.6 on my brand new MacBook Pro Retina 15", 2,5 GHz Intel Core i7 Processor, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM, AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB Graphics: I'm going through old photos in an old external drive formatted for Windows and every time I get to the same biggish...

    Move LR photos and their dev settings from a PC external drive to a Mac external drive

    Hello, everyone, I decided to test this out, after realising all previews and configuration data and everything was already in my new catalog in my new Mac. So I copied a less important folder to see what happened. I mean, I manually copied it outside of LR from one drive to the other and, then...

    Move LR photos and their dev settings from a PC external drive to a Mac external drive

    Hello, Cletus, and thanks a lot for your reply! The catalog I had already copied to the new computer and am now working from it. The presets and settings I had also successfully copied to the new computer. As well as the previews. Basically, everything is already there in the new computer. When...

    Move LR photos and their dev settings from a PC external drive to a Mac external drive

    I used to work my photos with LR on a PC and have a couple of years' worth of photo archives in and external drive. Now I'm using a Mac and a new drive formatted for Mac, obviously, but the issue is that on the Mac I can neither work the old photos (as a Mac can't write on a PC-formatted drive)...

    Can I selectively restore developer settings for some photos from a catalog backup?

    Guys! I can't thank you all enough for your help! I don't know if it's common in this LR forum (cuz I'm brand new) but I've never receive so many and so useful tips in any forum about anything! So I'm surely going to be coming back (to pitch in, I hope, more than to ask for help when things are...

    Can I selectively restore developer settings for some photos from a catalog backup?

    Hello, Johan, thanks a lot for the quick reply! I'm currently trying this out but in another computer... I don't want to further mess up my catalog. I'll let you know how I fare. Haha. Thanks for the reprimand! I do appreciate it. And I do have backups set to once a week (yeah, I know what...

    Can I selectively restore developer settings for some photos from a catalog backup?

    I'm getting frustrated with this. I can't find a practical way of solving what I've done. I was tired and, rather than reorganize into date files some older photos in my catalog, I decided to delete them and import them again, and let LR 6.1 automatically set them into date files. As I clicked...

    Is there no way to set multiple copies as masters at once?

    Hello! Great source of info, this forum! My name is Xavier, and this is my first thread... I hope I do well! This is the issue: Recently I had to restore an older catalog in LR 6.1 and now have VCs for around 2000 images recently edited. What I now want to do is set all the VCs (that is, the...
