    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...

    Moving Develop Presets to a new desktop.

    I am moving my Lightroom and other apps to a new desktop. I am assuming that if I replace the Develop Preset folder that Lightroom generates on the new machine with the one that I copied from my old machine that it should be a straight forward replace operation - 1.
