    Fixing incorrect date in camera metadata

    Jim, Sorry about the sloppy specs RE what I wanted to do. I used Victoria's directions to chance the capture date year. I then used the file renaming option which fixed the file names based upon the capture date. Thanks for clarifying the need for two separate operations!

    Fixing incorrect date in camera metadata

    I apparently forgot to change the date from 2022 to 2023 in my Nikon D700 on the first of the year. So when I uploaded images shot yesterday on 01/21/23 they were uploaded into LR with the time/date 01/21/22. Is there an easy way to change just the year in the file names of those 67 images? Thanks!

    LR 6.14 Fails To Recognize AF-P Nikkor 70-300 Lens

    Whoops! I solved my own problem. I recently traded in some of my old camera gear and before doing so I wanted to check shutter actuation counts. Some of the free apps online that calculate shutter activations require jpegs so I reset all my cameras to jpeg from RAW. I figured I might as well get...

    LR 6.14 Fails To Recognize AF-P Nikkor 70-300 Lens

    My old reliable Nikkor 70-300 lens was getting pretty tired after shooting in excess of 100,000 shots so I recently traded it in at B&H for the newer AF-P version. I mounted this lens on my Nikon D500 today and it seems to work fine so far although I haven't run any lens tests on it yet. But...

    Computer hangs when switching from Library to Develop Mode

    I already tried that and it had no effect. The weird thing is that you can sit at the keyboard alternately hitting the shortcut keys E& D anf LR will make the switch flawlessly five or six times and then either slow down appreciably or literally hang up. I had this problem once before and then...

    Computer hangs when switching from Library to Develop Mode

    Since upgrading to LR 6.14 a couple of years ago I have noticed that switching back and forth between the Library and Develop modes has become rather problematic. Sometimes when I hit the shortcut D key while in Library mode the transition takes place quickly, sometimes slowy. At other times I...

    Exposure Compensation displaying as wacky fraction in loup view?

    Hal, I just revisited the problem and noticed something I had not noticed before. To whit the screwy EV fractionalized numbers only appeared on images that I had processed with Topaz Denoise and Gigapixel. Apparently something happens within those apps that cause this to occur. Thanks!

    Exposure Compensation displaying as wacky fraction in loup view?

    Recently my exposure compensation info set up to display in loup view began displaying as a fraction instead of -1, +2 etc. What do I need to do to change it back? Thanks!

    Changing catalog link from internal to external drive

    Thanks! Jim I suspected that would be the way to do it but having had my share of LR file management problems in the past I wanted to be sure. Thanks for the heads up! Much appreciated.

    Changing catalog link from internal to external drive

    My folder structure is based upon Years. Images made in 2020 are stored in dated subfolders under that year, etc. As my image collection has grown I have adopted a policy of keeping only the last two years (2019, 2020) on my iMacs internal drive, earlier years are stored on multiple external...

    Missing Options LR6 Lens Correction Panel

    Paul, Thanks so much for the clarification! I was going nuts trying to figure out if I had incorrectly set a preference or configuration setting.

    Missing Options LR6 Lens Correction Panel

    In Victoria's excellent LR 6 Missing Manual the lens correction panel is shown with 4 options: Basic, Profile, Color, Manual. Yet when I click on the Lens Corrections panel in my copy of LR 6.14 I get only 2 options: Profile, Manual (see screen shots below). Any idea what's causing this? Do I...

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    Whoops! It turns out I celebrated victory a bit too soon... When I got the catalog back from Victoria I made a few small edits to one image and then closed Lightroom with Check Integrity and Optimize Catalog checked and the backup took a little less than 10 minutes to complete. So it appeared...

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    Just wanted to let folks know that Victoria and her contact at Adobe were able to get my catalog fixed up. It's still 6 GB in size (probably due to develop history size) but it now backs up in under 10 minutez whereas it took upwards of an hour before. Great big Thank You! to Victoria and her...

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    Cletus, I started a Catalog backup 1 hour ago and the "Checking catalog integrity" progress bar has barely moved so the Export as Catalog trick hasn't fixed the problem. You said you'd recommend I zip the original Catalog file and send it to Victoria. Did you ever find the email address for me...

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    Cletus, I followed your instructions and exported my current catalog to the Desktop. The operation took a few minutes to complete but sadly the exported catalog remained the same size 6.11 GB. I'm not sure where that leaves us. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    Cleetus, I finally have time to try out your catalog export idea to see if it fixes my problem. When I clicked on Export As Catalog there are 3 check boxes. I don't think I need to check "Export Negative Files" as they already exist on my hard drive but I'm unsure whether I should check off...

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    I checked out your link and it does indeed appear that ESET is not the best thing since sliced bread. I cheched out ESET's instructions for uninstalling the app and will do so. My question is just how important is it to track down and delete the ESET files left behind after following their...

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    To answer your question ESET was loaded on my computer by the repair shop I paid to transfer all my stuff over from my old iMac. They gavve it a strong recomendation at the time. I had my doubts but gave them the OK to load it. When the 1 year subscription ran out I did not renew. I'm still not...

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    Paul last night at 11:30 pm I deactivated both my ESET Cyber Security App and Time machine, exited Lightroom clicking Check Catalog Integrity and Optimize Catalog and clicked OK. Forty minutes later the progress bar had barely moved an eighth of an inch. When I checked this morning 8.5 hrs later...
