    Develop module Do you use a drawing tablet? Which one?

    Intuos Pro L - couldn't do without it. Had it a few years now, but I find it invaluable for both Photoshop and Lightroom. I don't use a separate trackpad, so the touch function is essential for me.

    Thanks, Tim, you're correct. We now moved the thread.

    Masking Person and retouch background

    I understand. Personally, I'd open in Ps, use Select Subject (it uses the same AI as LrC) and save as a new layer. Then you can easily clone on the original layer without the Subject being affected (assume this is what you're aiming for)

    Masking Person and retouch background

    Why use Masking at all? Just use the clone option? Failing that, in Ps, it's an easy enough task.

    Smart Previews are irrelevant in this instance. Read page 529 in your Classic FAQ to understand what they are and what they are used for.

    Possible catalog corruption

    Try deleting the Helper file (sits next to the Catalog files) then open Lightroom again.

    Anyone else having recent sync issues with catalog on Dropbox?

    Hi Mike We did write a blog on this, specific to Mac: Make sure all those files are forced to be held locally, at least. But I'm with Dan - I wouldn't hold a catalog on Dropbox, but to sync a backup works fine of course.

    Photos not importing

    Where are you importing from? Camera directly connected? Card Reader? If either of the above, try copying the raw files to a temporary location on disk using Finder, then Import from there - helps to establish where the issue lies. p.s. why still on 11.2? That's more than a year out of date...

    Lightroom mobile sync to lightroom Classic

    Also, try deleting the Helper file (sits next to the catalog) as this keeps a note of photos and locations (it recreates when you open LrC next time)

    Lightroom Catalog Was Not Found

    From your screenshot, the disk is named correctly - it's the Mount Point. See Johan's post.

    Can I resize the LRC window - not minimize it

    In LrC, use the Menu command Window - Move to Left (or Right) of the Screen - then just drag the edge to fill to the size you require.

    Lightroom Catalog Was Not Found

    I would suggest name the drive back to what it was previously (so lose the extra ' 1') by using Disk Utility. Should make Lightroom and Backblaze happy.

    Lightroom Catalog Was Not Found

    You're the second person to mention an external drive has had it's name changed (and they also had notification from BackBlaze) If you know what the drive had been called you could name it back (keep Lightroom and BackBlaze happy) - or simply navigate to the catalog in Finder and double-click...

    Lightroom Classic catalog issue

    If the drive with photos on has changed name, then Lightroom won't see the photos. Try using Disk Utility to change back.

    Noise Reduction

    If you're importing using Lightroom's DNG conversion, then no; Lightroom keeps it as a mosaiced file, even though it's DNG format. With other software conversions to DNG this isn't always the case.

    LR laptop not syncing back to LRC

    No. Lightroom Classic keeps whatever is synced down to it. See page 558 of your Classic FAQ (2022 Edition)
