    Filters not remembered when moving away from collection

    I do not know if it is a 'collections thing' or a setting I have not activated (I switch Mac a few months ago) but it used to be that when navigating between folders (and collections too, although not sure) LR would remember my filter settings (bottom right). As a wedding photog, I like the...

    How to download pictures from the LR Cloud

    I have a love-hate relationship with LR (the cloud-based version). My normal import workflow is the following: on my iMac, I import my RAW files in LR where I select the good and discard the bad ones. I like doing it this way as I often use my tablet to do that work. I will use LrC to edit and...

    Sharpenning in Lightroom

    This will sound oh so stupid but reading Mark Evening's book on Lightroom, I just discovered the Sharpen command. I shoot RAW with my Nikon D90 and I have up to now never used any sharpening. So, the "oh so stupid question" is: - Should I sharpen and if so by how much? - Also, should I...

    Changing a large number of really bad time stamps from different cameras

    I am struggling with a large number of pictures (1,900 of them actually) stored in Lightroom 3.6 under “Our Wedding” folder. These pictures come from six different cameras all with different times and with only one that I trust. I have started by individually changing some of the time stamps...

    Lightroom iCloud Photostream integration

    I have not seen this question asked before on this forum and I have only pieces being discussed elsewhere, so here goes. I would love to know if some sort of LR plug-in exist that would allow integration with Apple iCloud Photostream. I have heard of PhotoStream2Folder as opne solution. Is it...

    Bug with hard disk publishing service?

    I recently posted a thread about HD pub services. Got the answer. Tks. I posted the solution on my blog here. I also viewed this video on Adobe TV that mentions a few "gotchas" to be aware of when exporting for iPad viewing. Two things that need to be done: 1) Rename files (more on a possible...

    Hard Disk publishing service

    I have recently migrated from Aperture to LR3. Although I have totally in love with LR; I can even say that I prefer its UI although most people, including LR users, often say that AP has the upper hand here. One thing I miss is the ease of synchronizing albums to the iPad. In AP, under a...

    Keyboard shortcut to delete pics from catalog AND file system

    After importing pictures into the LR3 catalog, I often delete bad ones. On my Mac I had been using OPTION-DELETE shortcut to bypass the dialog box. However, I just noticed that this shortcut does NOT delete files from the hard disk, simply from the catalog :( Is there a short to directly...

    Importing black and white JPGs results in Development module error

    I received some black and white pics and imported them in LR 3.4.1 on my Mac. The JPGs are fine and I can clearly see them in full size using the built in Mac OS Preview tool. However, in LR, I can only see the thumbnail. Zooming in to full size or going in the Development module results in an...

    Migrating from Aperture to Lightroom: how do you replace the Faces feature in AP?

    I have recently switched from Aperture 3 to Lightroom 3. The purpose of this post is not to repeat the reasons for that switch, nor is it to say that LR3 is better than AP3. Switching has required that I give up on using Faces in AP3. I kind of liked that feature as it allowed me to quickly tag...

    Nikon D90 presets imports

    I could not find anything related to this topic here. Which makes me wonder about my abilities to search here as for sure this subject has already been discussed LOL! Do you guys and girls apply a preset when importing from your D90? I tends to like a Clarity (not sure of the English name) /...

    Lightroom 3: First impressions from an Aperture user

    I am still trying to deny the fact that I am about to switch away from an Apple product. Not that all Apple software are the best (would I go for Pages instead of Word?) or that Apple does a good job at maintaining them (read the iWeb sad story). I already spoke of the reasons why I am...

    I am new to LR. I come from the Aperture world on a Mac. My question (for which I did not find anything posted here actually): I shoot Nikon RAW (NEF), should I convert to DNG on import? Tx Max

    Migrating from Aperture to Lightroom?

    I am currently examining the possibility to switch from Aperture 3 to Lightroom 3. The details of which I will explain in a different thread. I am currently looking for best practices to do so and start on a good footing. For example, I have exported all masters from my managed library using a...
