    Hello All: I can't get the camera to work in the mobile app. When I hit the icon, it asks for access to the camera roll and won't do anything else. Help? Alison

    When traveling bugs show up

    yes I am aware of all that, and yet it still happens. I misspoke, however- it was not the develop module that disappeared it was the develop tools in the Basic exposure area of the Library. Plus the collections and edits I did. Not the first time, either.

    When traveling bugs show up

    Operating System: Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):Mac sierra 10.12.6, Lightroom CC. This is not the first time I've had issues with lightroom CC when traveling. I keep the catalog and the images on a portable hard drive, and when on shoots without internet connection bad...

    Smart preview catalogs

    Thank you! but I do not understand why the smart preview catalog does not override the original catalog in all ways. I believe that's what the information says... That develop and metadata changes get imported into and on top of ( replacing) the older catalog? In the meantime how should I...

    Smart preview catalogs

    thank you for this careful reply! I did export as you say. What it the proper way to import as a catalog, in this situation? I made smart previews, exported as a catalog including the smart previews. I made changes at a different location, and came back with the improved smart catalog version...

    Smart preview catalogs

    many (most?) keywords I had removed stayed, many many keywords showed no images attached, the massive rearranging I did with nesting keywords did not happen..... So, I'm now trying to link the improved 'smart catalog' to the images themselves, making the original Master catalog obsolete. Its...

    Smart preview catalogs

    Hi: I need to work in two locations on my 66,000 images. I created smart previews, exported them as a catalog, changed tons and tons of keywords around in the "smart catalog" at home, then imported as a catalog back into the Master catalog at work. The keyword changes did not take hold; chaos...

    exporting titles with proper punctuation

    AS you can see, the title has underscores that are NOT in my LR catalog. The file names have intentional underscores.

    exporting titles with proper punctuation

    My titles all have spaces in LR, that seem to convert to underscores on export... as seen in various desktop viewers, like finder.

    backward compatability question

    Thanks! I kinda figured that would be the case. We can't have CC at work.... not allowed. So, I'll get the disk from 5.7 at work, bring it home and run two LR's on my machine here. That works fine (i Hope!!) Cheers Alison

    backward compatability question

    My home computer has Creative Cloud but my work machine has Lightroom 5.6. Can I still work on the 5.6 on my home machine, or if i work with Creative Cloud will it be backwards compatible when I return to my office machine?

    resetting large groups back to "as shot"

    Hi- I work with designers who want to see images full frame, as shot- in other words take away every improvement the photographer put on the image and revert to the absolute original. How do I do that? I tried 'reset' but I want to do large groups (say a whole smart preview catalog) and that...

    exporting smart previews

    thanks, thats what I thought. Probably didn't check the create smart previews on import..... also, what is the difference between a smart preview catalog and a backup catalog?

    exporting smart previews

    Hello! I created two different 'smart preview catalogs' and opened them on other machines. In one catalog I was able to export the smart preview , but not from the other catalog. Any ideas? Did I miss a setting, or a button somewhere? Thanks! A

    Publishing problems

    Hi: I'm trying to upload images to Smug Mug through the plug in, and the task gets cancelled almost immediately. I checked LR preferences, catalog settings, and all the various Publishing Manager settings as well. I closed and reopened LR, and removed and reloaded the current Smug Mug plug in...

    Very Weird Backup problem

    Hi- I went to back up my LR 5, and it repeatedly said there was not enough room on my desktop, or the server I also tried --- both have plenty of room for the backup! So I closed it anyway, and when I went to re-open with "open recent" the catalog I'd been working on was not listed! I had to go...

    Saving metadata to file

    HI all: I've been having problems with metadata properly transferring through my LR system to Bridge and and to an on line photo hosting service. I store the images on a server, but keep the catalog locally on my machine. I started doing the redundant 'save metadata to files' function hoping...
