  • Lightroom Classic users who are running 13.3... 13.3.1 is now out with the following bug fixes:
    1. Location fields go missing after syncing the images
    2. Map Search is not returning a result
    3. There are no notifications for new likes in 13.3
    4. Crash while applying Remove on Windows
    5. When editing with Smart Previews instead of Originals, the source heal/clone area cannot be moved
    6. Mismatch between the brush size and the mask created
    There are still outstanding new bugs, mostly around sync and writing to XMP, so if these are essential in your workflow, you may want to stick to 13.2 for now. See the list at the top of our blog post for more details.

    Any plugins for finding multiple missing folders?

    You are right that Lightroom uses the file operations of Windows. But Adobe has succeeded in letting Lightroom call these operation in a way which is not very desirable. When I mark multiple folders for copying or moving in Windows Explorer, they will be moved one after one. When I mark...

    Any plugins for finding multiple missing folders?

    If you mean that it will force me to do things differently in the future: It will probably not. Not before Lightroom's internal file movement is improved.

    Any plugins for finding multiple missing folders?

    I have often moved my image folders outside Lightroom due to miscellaneous shortcomings of LR's folder move functions (no moving of multiple folders in earlier LR versions, parallel moving of multiple folders instead of serial moving, errors when folders contained non-image objects, etc.). And...

    How to export metadata to text, NOT to the image files.

    If you use raw files, LR can export most of the metadata to an .xmp sidecar file, one per photo. As far as I know, this option does not exist for JPG or DNG in Lightroom.

    printing exactly same size as on the screen, with no borders

    Imagine that you have square piece of paper and a non-square photo. I hope you can immediately see that there is no way to put that photo onto the paper without doing one of these: - Cut some of the photo away so it becomes square - Only fill the paper partially, without printing to all 4...

    Synchronizie a setting only to photos where the setting is still at default value?

    It is very comprehensive, but also a little clumsy because I have to create a new rule every time I want to apply a new setting. If I want to apply Clarity to all photos where I had not already applied any Clarity , then I have to create a rule which finds all all photos with Clarity at...

    Synchronizie a setting only to photos where the setting is still at default value?

    But this is not what I am looking for. I am looking for changes to a specific setting. Anyway, I have installed the plugin I mentioned in my first post, and it is working quite well for my needs.

    Starting with lightroom. Tiding up hard disk photos first

    The additional \YYYY\ folder level is also part of Lightroom's automatic folder naming. (Edit: I now see that you have 3 folder levels, not one. So calling my system with 2 folder levels more complex is a bit strange. Anyway, both 1, 2 and 3 date based levels are supported by Lightroom's...

    Starting with lightroom. Tiding up hard disk photos first

    At (1) I don't see the problem. I would use a description of what the photos show. So in your example something describing the family aggregation or my daughter playing. Please note that this step is purely optional. You can do fine, even without adding any information to the folder name. But...

    Starting with lightroom. Tiding up hard disk photos first

    I just use a simple date based scheme: ..\YYYY\YYYY.MM.DD_eventdescription\ The date part can be automated in Lightroom. The description of event you can add manually after import. All the other descriptive stuff can be organized with keywords within Lightroom which makes it easier to search...

    Synchronizie a setting only to photos where the setting is still at default value?

    As the subject says. Is this possible? An example could be a group of photos where I have added individual Post Crop Vignetting to some of the photos. Then I decide that they should all have a bit of Post Crop Vignetting, but I don't want to touch the photos where I have already spent time...

    Starting with lightroom. Tiding up hard disk photos first

    OK. It is your choice. But I would never make such a complicated folder structure. Do you really want all your photos from the same trip to Zurich scattered around in different places, just because they were taken with different cameras? And if you sort the folders outside Lightroom, would...

    Starting with lightroom. Tiding up hard disk photos first

    The most important part is in my opinion to decide on a folder structure before you import. The reason: If you decide to discard any existing folder structure and instead use a date based folder structure, you can actually let Lightroom auto-arrange everything in date named folders when you...

    Starting with lightroom. Tiding up hard disk photos first

    Lightroom will remember your tags. At least when you use the same catalog (the LR database) for all your photos, which most of us would really recommend you to do. So the next time you want to use a tag, you will just have to put a check mark it in the list of existing tags.

    No more stand alone upgrade downloads/CC for LR only now?

    ...which may be cheap if you want LR + PS, but is very expensive if you only want LR. As you see in the example below your post, the price of an upgrade is equal to 6 months' subscription. And after those 6 months, you would still have a valid, perpetual license to LR5 if you bought the...

    Unwanted automatic cropping

    I don't know how fast the processor is on this camera. If lens correction increases the EVF delay significantly - which seems plausible - it is quite understandable that the EVF is showing an uncorrected live stream.

    Unwanted automatic cropping

    There is cropping / lens correction going on. The reason that you don't see it is probably that you are only comparing cropped/corrected versions of the photo. Most of the tools you have used are probably only extracting the embedded JPEG, and we already know that the embedded JPEG is...

    Unwanted automatic cropping

    Was it this thread: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom_4_1_rc_trouble_with_canon_5d_mark_iii_aspect_ratio Luckily, Eric Chan later changed his mind and changed Lightroom to give full access to the uncropped area. But unfortunately only for newly released cameras. Us...

    Unwanted automatic cropping

    Are you saying that you can import the OP's raw file into LR on your Mac without getting the cropping? Or are you saying that you can't get the uncropped version by viewing the raw file with other programs on your Mac? I have imported it into Lightroom 5.4 on Windows 7, and I get the cropping...

    How to filter photos that do not have a LR XMP node?

    Sounds to me like you will get a lot of false negatives (pun not intended). If this tool finds an LR XMP block, it still will not know if this block is in sync with the latest changes you have made in Lightroom.

    Crop Tool Problem

    1. Having different horizontal and vertical scaling on a monitor will not affect the scaling of a screen dump. 2. The ratio between vertical and horizontal scaling changes when he uses the crop tool. Using the crop tool will not change the settings of the graphics card or the physical...

    Crop Tool Problem

    A stupid question from me: When I look at the distorted image, it fills the available space in the Lightroom window pretty accurately. Is this a pure coincidence, or can you actually change the distortion by changing the height or width of the Lightroom window?

    Crop Tool Problem

    The distortion seems very strange. (Or rather: It is a pretty easily explainable distortion caused by different scaling along the vertical and horizontal axes. But it is strange that Lightroom does it, since we have no user tools for applying such differentiated scaling.) I think I sometimes...

    LR 5.4: GPS data not reverse geocoding if Sublocation manually defined

    You haven't really answered my question. So I will try again in another way: Is the result different if you switch step 2 and 3 in your description?

    Crop Tool Problem

    I think you will need to post some screenshots showing the photo before cropping and during cropping.
