  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

    Previews confusion

    Thanks for you help.

    Previews confusion

    Apparently ... but the fact is that my max standard preview size is ever so slightly less than 1:1, and following your reasoning I would have to assume the program thinks that is close enough so as not to have to generate 1:1. Besides, when I did generate 1:1 it took forever, so it was clearly...

    Previews confusion

    I am still confused and obviously not getting it. What you said Johan was that "Only 1:1 previews are extra". If they are extra, i.e. on top of the pyramid of standard previews, and I generate 1:1 previews for all my images surely my "catalogue Previews.lrdata" should have grown quite...

    Previews confusion

    Ah ... but how do you explain the fact that my "catalogue Previews.lrdata" has barely grown after I generated 1:1 previews for about 100000 images?

    Previews confusion

    Thanks for all the info. What happens when I set 1:1 on import instead of standard? Surely, LR does not then generate standard previews as well? And when I say "never" to the delete option, does that mean they stay and are only deleted/updated when I edit a file, or do I need to generate them...

    Previews confusion

    Sorry, I thought I had mentioned that sufficiently in my original post. I have a 5K iMac (27"), which has 5120 x 2880, and LR CC defaults to 5120 in its auto setting.

    Previews confusion

    I do a lot of browsing and then even a 1-2 sec delay can be a bit of a bind. Besides, as I explained, I am trying to understand LR's previews. If the Standard Previews are just about the same size as 1:1 why not go for the latter? And how do standard previews relate to 1:1? Can't I set standard...

    Previews confusion

    Hi, I still find myself struggling with the various types of Previews in LR. I am on a 5K iMac and the auto Standard Preview generated on import is just short of 6000 by 4000, which is also the maximum size of my photos. When Standard Preview size and 1:1 are so close would I be better off...

    Import problem from SD card: no new images

    Not to worry. This is a weird problem and I now suspect that it may be due to a somewhat rickety card reader that started giving me other problems as well (like not being recognised at all by my Mac).

    Import problem from SD card: no new images

    Just returned from a day trip shooting wild horses. I used two cameras and upon inserting the SD cards LR Classic showed none of the photos I made today. It did show some older ones from a few weeks ago. I am using LR Classic Release 8.2; Camera Raw 11.2 on an iMac Mojave 10.14.4. The SD cards...

    Book module: maintaining image order

    Just a follow-up on my earlier mail. I have now figured out at least two other, much easier, ways to preserve the custom order in a folder and use this order for a book, thus avoiding having to custom sort things twice (once in the original folder and once again in the collection used as a basis...

    Book module: maintaining image order

    I agree. That used to be my standard routine as well. The problem is that I then have to also rearrange everything in the original folder (which I would like to have the same order as the book) because sort orders cannot be transferred easily. Since sorting takes a lot of time (when I do several...

    Book module: maintaining image order

    This is an old problem but extremely frustrating in that it creates a vast amount of unneccessary work for us that could easily have been avoided. I have a folder in which I have carefully ordered all the images in the order in which I would also like to use them in the photo book. When I click...

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    Sorry, I should have read your response more carefully.

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    I contacted Adobe support and guess what ... the "Export to PDF..." option has moved to the right bottom corner, where it normally says "Send Book to Blurb".

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    Yes, the option you showed is missing. If I go back to any of the earlier books I made with the "Blurb" setting it returns. And yes, I have set it from the Book Settings panel.

    Export Book to PDF option missing

    Previously I always chose the Blurb option when creating photo albums even though I stopped printing them years ago. This time I thought it would make more sense to choose the PDF output option in the book module. Now that the book is finished I suddenly discovered that the "Export Book to PDF"...

    Book module PDFs: corrupted text after merging

    I have run into a serious issue with the pdfs created by the Book module. I do not think the problem lies with Adobe though, but cannot be certain. Since it concerns those of us who use the PDF export function of the book module I would still like to describe what happens here. I am also...

    Book module woes

    It just happened again in a new book I started and this time I may have a suggestion when it happens. Just like the last time I had started a new book and then discovered it was set to Landscape when I wanted the Square format. I changed the format added some pages, came back to it later and...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Yes, that sounds like a good idea. I'll give that a try and see whether it works for me. As to the VC dynamically updating, I was not trying to suggest this is part of their functionality in LR, I was just hoping there might be a routine in LR that would generate new VCs when the original image...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Johan, as I learn more techniques and gain greater (one hopes) photographic insight into what makes an image successful or not, so I want to tinker more with what I consider my best pictures. Some will be added, others will loose this status altogether and many others will be tinkered with as I...

    Carriage returns in Book module

    Although the book module has been slightly improved with the ability to add cells wherever one wants on the page, text support is still miserable. One problem I have been struggling with since early LR versions is the use of formatted text with carriage returns to use in either Photo Text or...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Ok, I had not realised that VCs had to be in the same collection. Now it does work as expected and I can publish them to a folder that is synced to all my computers. Thank you both for introducing me to the basics of smart collections and publishing. I do have a few follow up questions though...

    Workflow with virtual copies problem

    Thanks Johan, not complicated but the results are still not what I would expect (see screenshots). As suggested earlier I made the smart folder part of the Hard Drive Publish Service but I only get 20 hits and not all of those are in Portfolio collection set. . By the way, I did Google this...
