    In Library: Display image size in inches vs pixels

    I was afraid of that because in all the years I've been using Lr I've never seen an option to convert pixels to inches, but I never looked very hard because I never needed to know in the past. Guess I'll just have to Edit in Ps to get that or use a pixel converter. Thanks

    In Library: Display image size in inches vs pixels

    I've checked the Pref and Library Review options but can't seem to find an option to change the display, in grid mode, to inches. It seems like an option that would be available. But I can' find it /-:

    Many Gray'd out options "Source File" error

    Thanks for your quick response. I'm embarrassed! I've been away from Lr for a while, working, working on video. I guess this validates the "use it or lose it" theory! Of course, as soon as you mentioned it I realized you'd nailed it. Thanks!

    Many Gray'd out options "Source File" error

    I just noticed that the "Edit in" options were grayed out. Then I discover that most of the option on fly-out menus are grayed. Then I got a "Source file is off line" error when I tried the Export option. I updated yesterday, is there any connection with that and what I am experiencing? How...

    SFW files

    Got It, thanks. It doesn't convert to jpg, or I haven't found an option for choosing a file type. It converts to png by default, and Lr doesn't have a problem with that filetype.

    SFW files

    Does anyone remember Seatle Film Works? I just opened a box of SFW disks I stored away years ago but the SFW format needs to be converted to something readable. Does anyone know of a converter program with an SFW conversion algorithm?

    "Open as layers in Ps" option grayed out

    Thanks Hal, I must say I am relieved to see that I didn't miss seeing the option after studying the options window, line by line. If it had been there I would have checked into the funny farm! I usually keep Lr and Ps up to date, but I double checked and everything is current. So how is it...

    "Open as layers in Ps" option grayed out

    Thanks. I don't see that Pref option so I'll just be sure to open Ps before sending it stuff from Lf.

    "Open as layers in Ps" option grayed out

    I have used the "open as layers in Ps" option in Lr a lot, but something has happened and while Ps opens with the images in layers, and I can drag them around, I can't do much else with them. For example, if I hit Ctrl-T the images don't get control box with handles. When I try "M" and...

    Getting sub-folders on the tree

    There are a bunch of subfolders in my Cruise folder but only one displays in the Cruise folder. When I Sync I get an "unknown error" on a list of mp4 files that are in a subfolder of one of the subfolders that doesn't appear in the Cruise folder. How do I get all the subfolders in my Cruise...

    Moving Catalog folders between folders on the same drive.

    No, turns out there is a problem on my end. I am able to get notifications online, at Webmail, but for some reason, some emails are not being forwarded on to my gmail server. I'm working on finding out why now. Thanks for your help on this.

    Moving Catalog folders between folders on the same drive.

    Thanks Victoria. For some reason, I didn't get an email notification. I've checked my notification settings and they seem to be set correctly. What I meant was that I moved the entire works off my O:\ drive, everything, en mass and put it in the "Files from O..." folder on my F:\ drive. So...

    From Classic to CC; what happens to images on my drive

    Hi Jim, good to see you! Well, I thought I did but after, reading your response, and watching Richard Harrington's related course on "Lynda.com" I realize that is not such a good idea. I'll stick with Classic, for most of my work but install CC and load a couple projects to see how it works...

    From Classic to CC; what happens to images on my drive

    I have decided to switch from Classic to CC. When I install CC will all my classic images remain on my computer. Will I have to move them to the cloud manually or is there some kind of automated process that does that?

    Website Closure is cancelled! We're staying open!

    It's been such a short while since you shut the forum down but I've missed it on every one of those days, wondering how many hoops I would need to jump through to get my many questions answered. The forum had been a lifesaver for me, I don't know how I would have managed without. Your message...

    Effect of ND filter

    Thanks. It is very clear, after reading that, that the colors in my images should not have been affected the way they were.

    Effect of ND filter

    Thanks for the explanation (-: As I said, the ND lens I had didn't even have stops, or numbers on the ring, so I had to use guesswork, and live view on the LED display, to determine the 0 position. I had no idea what a cheap filter I had!

    Effect of ND filter

    I thought a "lens cap" was an opaque cap the protected the lens when it wasn't in use.

    Effect of ND filter

    You were right, my filer was cheap! I sent it back. The ring didn't have any stops, it just turned all the way in either direction. Thanks for the link

    Effect of ND filter

    I added a ND filter because I am doing a lot of videos and was advised to use a shutter speed of 30-60, and a wide aperture, the idea being to get a shallow DOF, though I haven't figured out why that is so desirable, since it limits the amount of zooming that can be done in post-processing...
