    Moving from Lightroom Classic to Elements

    I had forgotten about ACDSee. I had used it back when I had a Win machine running Win 95 and 98. It hadn't had a macOS version back then. I remember liking it, but that was long before I really got into photo editing. Wikipedia says it is an image organizer, viewer, editor. There seems to be...

    Moving from Lightroom Classic to Elements

    Compared to Affinity Photo, Elements is sorely lacking. I had been using Lr 6.14 and Ps CS4 on my older MBP and Affinity Photo for editing on my other MBP. I used the Lyn app as a simple photo browser. It doesn't have database capability. If you are on a Win machine, you might need to look for...

    Masking issue in Lightroom classic

    I played with a few more photos using LrC 11.5 and its various selection tools. Thanks to a youtube video I learned about intersecting a mask after the first one has been created. For example, I was able to select subject, invert to really select the background, do some edits, then Alt/Option...

    Masking issue in Lightroom classic

    I just this week subscribed to the LrC/Ps combo so have Lr 11.5 and Ps 23.5.0. I regularly haunt the Reddit Ps subs and someone there asked why Lr Select Subject is so much better than the Ps version. So I opened a jpg in Ps (avoiding Lr raw and ACR) used Select Subject on it. Then back in Lr...

    Modified Photos to Re-Publish populating without photos being modified

    Now that was interesting. One of the respondents mentioned Lr updating its previews or its renderings from previous versions and that had triggered placing previously published photos into the Modified for Re-Publishing. I'm wondering, since I began with Lr 4 in 2013, if some folders on...

    Modified Photos to Re-Publish populating without photos being modified

    Thanks all. It's looking like I figured, that there isn't a way to modify the behavior. I had to ask my question in case there was something easy that I was missing. Someday I suppose I'll have to purchase a new computer as this old one won't run the new softwares. And the new computers won't...

    Modified Photos to Re-Publish populating without photos being modified

    Thank you both. I had just waited until the Modified to Re-Publish finished populating, selected all and marked as up to date. No re-publishing ever took place. My main question is if there is a setting in Lr which can be utilized to prevent just viewing images from changing metadata so that...

    Modified Photos to Re-Publish populating without photos being modified

    This is a behavior that has gone on since I began using Lr to publish to online media. I haven’t come across a fix as yet as I google. Searching here at Lightroom Queen hasn't shown a response either. I'm using Lr 6.14, the last version before the subscriptions. Mac OS 10.11.6 El Capitan All...

    Recommendation for an unzip app?

    Thank you all for the input. I look forward to hearing how the unarchiving goes.

    Recommendation for an unzip app?

    Thank you folks. Jim, you are correct. When I look at the Lightroom Catalog.lrcat file in my Pictures folder, it is only 1.97 G. Victoria, I shall keep StuffitExpander in mind.

    Recommendation for an unzip app?

    This week I upgraded to Lr 6.8. When I closed and backed up the catalog to my external drive, I saw a warning box which said, "Catalog size larger than 4GB" "Please use 3rd party utility such as 7-Zip or StuffitExpander to extract your catalog backup." I googled and found the Adobe page...

    brand new mac with OS 10.11.6 reinstall Lr 5.7 or do Lr 6?

    Thank you all very much for your advice. Cletus, it was Victoria's Lr Queen blog that had given me the information with which I had started this post. And I kept going back and re-reading it. So thank you for posting the link to it. Setting up Lr 6 was actually very simple. There were only a...

    brand new mac with OS 10.11.6 reinstall Lr 5.7 or do Lr 6?

    Thank you all very much for the input. I'm not sure I want to use Migration Assistant. I began the process earlier this evening and then canceled. The new MBP has half the hard drive space of the now defunct MBP. And I haven't seen a way to pick and choose what comes over during the Migration...

    brand new mac with OS 10.11.6 reinstall Lr 5.7 or do Lr 6?

    Thank you, I had read Victoria's Lr Queen blog/posts about the installation procedure and that is from where I got most of the information above. Johan, Cletus, thank you. I've been advised not to use Migration Assistant in this case due to the corrupted motherboard issues. If the old MBP...

    brand new mac with OS 10.11.6 reinstall Lr 5.7 or do Lr 6?

    My beloved old macbook pro running OS 10.7.5 Lion has mother, er, motherboard issues. I'm salvaging from it in target disc mode, plus I'm fairly insane with how OCD I am about backing up both my Lr catalog and my actual photo files, so absolutely no pixels or data have been lost. I'm in the...

    Lr 5.7 canceling import after hang, import button and File>Import are grayed out

    Excellent suggestion Jim. It's an external card reader that I've had for quite awhile. My aging mac has a built in SD card reader which I've never used. I'll have to see if the phenomenon occurs using that. Thank you!

    Lr 5.7 canceling import after hang, import button and File>Import are grayed out

    Hi Victoria, I import to the mac's internal hard drive. I'm not too concerned about Lr messing things up, although it is happening more frequently. I suspect it has something to do with my mac's OS 10.7.5. I'm interested in finding out if there is a way to get the Import button active without...

    Lr 5.7 canceling import after hang, import button and File>Import are grayed out

    Lately my Lr 5.7 has been hanging during imports from my card reader. It happens less often if I first unselect all and then select manually. The hang occurs after clicking on Import. The import screen opens, but nothing happens. No indication of anything in the narrow status bar at upper left...

    Lr5.7 says can't contact flickr web service, but photo is published

    This problem seems resolved but I'm posting it in case someone else comes across this problem. I've been using Lr to publish to my flickr photo stream since Lr 4, and haven't had any problems. This morning I published just fine, using Lr 5.7 as I've been doing for awhile. This evening I...

    Preview unavailable for this file

    I suspect that the forward slash issue is a different problem than the non-maximised PSD issue I had. I'm glad that this is being mentioned here in case someone else comes across that particular problem. I for one, wouldn't have known about the forward slash being legal for Macs but not for...

    Lr 5.6 lost the user presets for export and metadata and custom WB.

    I unticked that option. Closed Lr5.6. Reopened. Published a photo to flickr. No internal error/assertion failure. My old user presets for exporting were back. But the one newly created was gone. I navigated ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Export Presets/User Presets and found my...

    Lr 5.6 lost the user presets for export and metadata and custom WB.

    Jim, I can't see how or why checking "Store presets with Catalog" at all helped with my situation of the internal error/assertion failure. It shouldn't have done a thing to have helped that. Could it be coincidence? A thing which appeared related due to a nearness in time, but yet not related...

    Lr 5.6 lost the user presets for export and metadata and custom WB.

    Jim, I went there because that was one of the googled solutions I had found. I would never have suspected that ticking it would have changed a behaviour that would make a difference for the internal error/asssertion failure. But it appears to have fixed it. Ticking it didn't make my export...

    Lr 5.6 lost the user presets for export and metadata and custom WB.

    I had purchased the Lr 5 upgrade earlier this year but it wasn't until yesterday that I installed it. The installation appeared to go well. The catalog was intact. When I exported to Flickr the first and second times, Lr5 gave me a dialog box saying an internal error occurred, assertion failed...

    safely move photo from Publish Services "Deleted Photos to Remove" collection?

    In case someone else has the same question/problem, I'm posting this screenshot with diagram of to where I dragged the photo. I dragged the photo from "Deleted Photos to Remove" down to "Photostream" under the Flickr heading in Publish Services. Before that, I had been trying to drag it...
