    Get Rid Of Preserved File Name

    Woo Hoo! This did it! I can export originals including layered files to hard drive and it doesn't include the "Preserved File Name!" Thank so much to all who pointed me to this plug-in!

    Get Rid Of Preserved File Name

    Thanks - I'll look closer at this. I use Jeffrey Friedl's Export to Zenfolio, so I'm sure this is a good plug-in. I don't notice anything about the "Preserve File Name, but I'll look into it.

    Get Rid Of Preserved File Name

    Yes, I sometimes need files to be multilayered. They will sometimes be templates with different layers that can be changed or turned off.

    Get Rid Of Preserved File Name

    This was a response to @clee01l (the quote feature didn't work.) "Why is this even important? IMG_1234.JPG is not a very descriptive name or even unique." A lot of my graphics are scanned images. The file names are often just date-sequence-quick name, but I will often put descriptors about...

    Get Rid Of Preserved File Name

    I am a professional digital graphics creator. I rename my graphics in Lightroom before publishing them in collections and I DO NOT wish for the Preserved File Name to be in my final files I sell to customers! I didn't notice that this is a (relatively) new feature in Lightroom until today. I...

    Export files with keywords - to re-import files

    Thank you all so much for your input!! It turned out to be a preset that I usually apply to everything I import that has my contact and copyright info. It didn't occur to me to turn off my metadata preset for re-importing files. Also I never thought of using a folder that I keep files that I...

    Export files with keywords - to re-import files

    Hi all, I'm running into a problem. I wasn't sure if I should post here or in Workflow, but as it deals mainly with export - I'll post here. I have vintage image scan Photoshop documents that I have keyworded in Lightroom. I need to export these to my assistant to retouch in Photoshop and then...

    Production Flow organization using LR, PS and assistants

    Oh, thank you so much LouieSherwin! Those are very helpful suggestions and I'm going to carefully read the Workflow Smart Collections link. I use some of Jeffrey Friedl's plug-ins, but didn't know about that one. It might get a bit cumbersome creating so many collections - I'll have to think...

    Production Flow organization using LR, PS and assistants

    I could really use some help using LR to organize my production of scanned images. My Current Situation: I scan a high volume of vintage images that I need to send via Dropbox to my assistants to retouch. Right now, I have folders on my hard drive, folders on Dropbox, and then I have files in...

    Upgrade to Lightroom 3 Now getting Metadata alert

    OK, so I'm back - EVERY time I open a file in Photoshop CS5 through Lightroom 3 when I close it and go back to Lightroom I have that alert on the file. Never happened in LR2. It's very annoying!

    Export and Re-import / replace photos

    Thank you for this answer. That will be very helpful Photoshop doesn't "destroy" the original. Yes, you have to open the image as a psd or tiff file. Using layers, you can edit to your heart's content. I generally prefer working in Photoshop. I'm not just doing a bit of burning and dodging and...

    Export and Re-import / replace photos

    A little program called Adobe Photoshop. It's kind of popular. ;-) This is what I need to do. I have a large number of images that will need retouching - spotting, backgrounds masked, etc. I'm going to be getting freelance assistance for that work. I have everything key-worded, etc. so it would...

    Will they need Lightroom for this?

    Export and Re-import / replace photos

    Hello, I need to send a batch of images to my assistant for editing. I will then want to re-import and replace the edited files. Is this possible? Thank you Lightroom 3.

    Upgrade to Lightroom 3 Now getting Metadata alert

    Aside from opening in Photoshop - no, I haven't. I did at one point add some file info information in Photoshop to a few images before I realized I could do it in Lightroom - but this is happening on recently imported photos as well, so I'm quite sure that isn't the problem. It's even happening...

    Upgrade to Lightroom 3 Now getting Metadata alert

    Bruce, does this count if I am using dng format? I thought they didn't use sidecars? Actually come to think of it, I don't think the Zenfolio plug-in actually adds keywords to the image, just the exported files. So maybe that isn't it at all. I didn't see these exclamation marks in LR 2. I'm not...

    Upgrade to Lightroom 3 Now getting Metadata alert

    I upgraded straight to 3.4. I haven't used any other software except Photoshop. I do use the export to Zenfolio plug-in and used to add keywords. I wonder if that's what's bother it. The Cmd (mac) S works - but wish I knew what it was doing. Just makes me a bit nervous.

    Upgrade to Lightroom 3 Now getting Metadata alert

    I just upgraded to Lightroom 3 yesterday from Lightroom 2. I'm getting an exclamation mark on certain photos. When I click it, it says And it gives me an option to Import Settings From Disc or Overwrite Settings. Why is it doing this and what should I do? Im on a Mac OS 10.6.8 Thank you.

    Lock a Photo from being deleted?

    I know I can lock a document from the finder (Mac), but can I lock a photo to prevent it from being deleted in Lightroom? I just accidentally trashed my final version of a few files - I have them backed up, but it was just aggravating. I do color label my finals, but I wasn't paying enough...

    change version of Photoshop to open with?

    I was afraid that was the solution - uninstall. Looks like I'll be upgrading sooner, which is not bad, I really love the new features. (Isn't the quick select tool and better refine edge awesome!?) Thanks for the temporary workaround short cut.

    change version of Photoshop to open with?

    I've been trying out CS5 for the last 3' days - will definitely be upgrading soon, but for now, need to go back to CS4. I can't figure out how to make Lightroom open up in CS4 again. I've looked at catalog and preference settings, I tried to see if I could change the photo / edit in. What can...

    Apply several layers of filters to search?

    I'm starting to figure it out. I was used to other programs where you added a search criteria with a Plus checkmark. Lightroom's filtering options weren't obvious to me.

    Apply several layers of filters to search?

    Hey, that's fantastic. Yes, it does add that! Great to know. Ah, I see I can choose yes or no. Thanks so much for that! I still have some things to figure out about the filters, but this helps tremendously.

    Apply several layers of filters to search?

    Oops. I forgot. I put a color label to indicate published. Oh, I think I may have just stumbled on something. I held down shift in Attributes and got 5 star and color label published. OK, so I just tried to do a search of 5 star rated, with color label none and came up with nothing. Do I...
