    Catalogs Catalog Problem? Not sure what to do, or why it happened>

    mkirker, once you have the new catalog, point it at your Image library and see if it will "Add" the images you have to the new catalog. That is what I did and it seems to have worked, with some small differences from the old catalog. So far, the only difference is the lack of key words. Some...

    Catalogs Catalog Problem? Not sure what to do, or why it happened>

    Well folks, I think I finally got my images back into a catalog that seems to work. I found my old "10" catalog and upon attempt to use it, it was converted by Lightroom to the "11" catalog, I then "Added" all my images in my Image Library back into Lightroom using that catalog. This worked...

    Catalogs Catalog Problem? Not sure what to do, or why it happened>

    HI Paul, I have a folder named Lightroom Photos, that is the top level folder for my images. It contains 70K + images. Lightroom 10 ran okay. The catalog it had created recognized all my photos and. I guess, the Smart Collections that I had built over the past few years. For some reason...

    Catalogs Catalog Problem? Not sure what to do, or why it happened>

    Paul, thanks for the idea. I will look and see if I can find the previous catalog. I was also thinking of restoring all the images from my backup, but right now, there is no difference between what is on the "operational" copy and what is on the backup. Is there anything to be gained from...

    Yes, I have done that. They are all there, and they are all present in my backup, if I need it. WesternGuy

    Johann, interesting speculation, but I I only keep the last catalog available for upgrade, any others are either deleted or moved to a backup folder. Do you have any insight into my questions? WesternGuy

    Catalogs Catalog Problem? Not sure what to do, or why it happened>

    When the last version of Lightroom was provided through the Adobe Creative Cloud update procedure a new catalog was required. However, the new catalog was, for whatever reason, only capable of finding about 20K of my photographs in a folder that has in excess of 70K images. It also...

    Lightroom 11 with new catalog has really mucked up my images

    I have over 70K images in my catalog and the new version of Lightroom (V11) seems to have really screwed things up. This new version is able to find my picture catalog stored on my G: drive as a folder named "Lightroom Photos", but this is where things go screwy. My photos are stored by Year...

    Lightroom doesn't recognize my picture drive

    Paul, thanks for your response and ideas. It is and they appreciated. To address you ideas: 1. Rest assured, I am positive that I did not do any of the copying inside Lightroom as I do not do backups that way. They are always done outside Lightroom. That way, Lightroom does not know its...

    Lightroom doesn't recognize my picture drive

    I have all my photos stored on my G: drive (external) and a backup drive for my images on F: (external). I recently updated all of the images on my backup drive (F:). I copy new folders from my G: drive to my F: drive, something I have done for quite a few years and now Lightroom will not...

    Problem logging in to the Forum

    I posted a message this afternoon and received some valuable replies. When I returned this evening to thank the posters, it appeared that I was logged in as I was recognized by the "Welcome line" at the top - "Hi Western Guy, welcome back!" - yet when I tried to post a thank you I was told I...

    Snapshots and Collections

    I am looking for an explanation of how Lightroom Classic (LC) handles these objects - Snapshots and Collections. In particular, I am interested in how much additional memory these take, either with the catalog or in my images location on my hard drive - where and how are these stored. The...

    Newbie Import question

    I would strongly urge you to use only one catalog as my understanding is that Lightroom can only handle one catalog at a time. If you are working with images in one catalog (call it Catalog A) and want to access images in another catalog (call it Catalog B), then you have to close Catalog A and...

    Philippe, thanks for the suggestion. I do believe that is currently happening, but I will check to be sure. WesternGuy

    Jim, sorry that i did not credit you with the suggestion on how to figure out if the CC app needed to be signed in to and, of course, I cannot edit my reply to correct my mistake. It has been that kind of a week. Cheers. WesternGuy

    I would like to know...

    I was able to start Photoshop and utilize it without signing in, so I still do not understand what the "fuss" was with Lightroom. I was able to restart Lightroom without any problem. It tells me that I am now running version 10, whatever that means - I guess it has something to do with the new...

    Paul, I was successful in opening the CC app without having to sign in, so I am still puzzled by the requirement to login to Lightroom. I will try Photoshop and see if I have to login to that app. WesternGuy

    I would like to know...

    Paul, I fixed it for Lightroom. I opened my laptop to my email and then Lightroom on my desktop. When it asked for a "code", I was able to quickly get it from my email on my laptop. I will now go and see if the CC app will let me login as I just received a message box from it indicating that...

    I would like to know...

    Paul thanks for the reply. I pay a subscription every month, automatically through PayPal and have ever since Adobe instituted this subscription thing. In fact, I just noticed, in an email I received from PayPal, that the "next" payment was made this morning. I am afraid that I do not know...

    I would like to know...

    ...who is the mental midget that decided that I needed to log into my own copy of Lightroom, a product I have used and owned for over 10 years and now I have to log into it to use it. Having not had to do this forever, I have to have a password which I don't remember - who does? - so now I...
