  • 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.

    Sorting Order

    I am updating on the problem of importing images from my iPhone to LR 5 which I brought up on Feb. 28 above. I thought it might be of interest to some of you. Basically, when I imported new images from the phone, over 500 images already in LR came in again with different file numbers. Also...

    Sorting Order

    Cletus, you responded to what jjlad said, not me. I thought I would mention this problem, but do not expect to get an answer. I copy my iPhone X JPEG images to LR 5. This time about 1/3 of the photos showed up in LR with duplicates. The second copy is lighter than the first original. They are...

    Sorting Order

    Thank you, Johan. It's such a simple thing I never noticed. Another problem: I recently I transferred everything on my old MacBook Pro to a newer MacBook Pro with the latest Mojave OS. I was happy that my LR 5 worked fine. The only thing is that when I copy new images from my iPhone to LR...

    Sorting Order

    I always sort my images in a collection by Capture Time, which is the same as sorting them by File Extension. Looking at eight new images sorted by Capture Time today, somehow I realized that they were in reverse order. To get the order back, I chose File Extension. Now choosing Capture Time...

    LR does not follow command instantly

    Hi Linwood, thank you again for trying to help me. This is truly a friendly forum. Guess what. I turned on my LR 5 and didn't see any spinning wheel. I tested editing in the Develop module and everything worked fine, no delay at all. Looking back, I must have stressed out LR, for the color wheel...

    LR does not follow command instantly

    Thank you Linwood and Richard. The slowness (practically a breakdown) did happen when I did a lot of spot removals continuously. Perhaps I was pushing too hard. Does resetting preferences take care of the GPU setting Linwood mentioned? I think doing this and looking into a new computer are what...

    LR does not follow command instantly

    Thank you, Linwood & Louie. I forgot to mention that the image showed up in LR often unfocused first, then it popped into focus. Also, I removed a lot of spots from one image. When I went back, Some of them showed up again. One spot I just could not remove. All these things are happening to me...

    LR does not follow command instantly

    I have LR on my MacBook Pro. Everything outside LR works normally, but in LR, when I use the mouse, the color wheel shows up spinning and I had to wait, sometimes for quite a while. Ever action I want to accomplish lags by a few seconds when it works. When I click and hold any slider and drag...

    Subfolder not showing up

    Well, I solved the problem. I suspect it has something to do with Dropbox, which Victoria pointed out regarding a separate issue in the past. I have already terminated Dropbox. Anyway, after clicking it open I saw the My Lightroom Photos folder with all the correct subfolders, including all the...

    Subfolder not showing up

    The first screen shot shows the Temporary subfolder I set up on the left. The second screen shot shows the subfolder on the right after I clicked Import – I do not see the Temporary subfolder.

    Subfolder not showing up

    Usually, when I import new images from my iPhone to LR, they show up in my Temporary subfolder under the My Lightroom Photos folder in the right panel under Destination. Somehow that folder disappeared after I clicked some button. So I set up another one named Temporary in the left panel under...

    Prob. importing only new images from iPhone X

    I have dropped Dropbox, since I have other backups. The last comment I want to make is that the Heic files fouled up all the file numbers of the Jpg versions after being imported into my LR 5. I don't understand the numbers any more, for they are all different and not always sequential. Also...

    Prob. importing only new images from iPhone X

    Dropbox tech support informed me that they do not convert files, yet their help page online shows exactly how to make your choice. Then I never was able to find the icons mentioned in the instructions on my Dropbox app page. So I am just going to let the whole thing go. As I mentioned, when all...

    Prob. importing only new images from iPhone X

    I might have found my answer after I just read this online: "Apple has a JPEG converter built into iOS 11 photo transferring as well. If you go to Settings and then Photos, make sure the “Transfer to Mac or PC” option is set to Automatic. This should make your iPhone photos transfer to your...

    Prob. importing only new images from iPhone X

    I imported HEIF files into LR 5 on my MacBook Pro with El Capitan, and of course, I couldn't see the HEIF files, but they were accompanied by JPEG images. I did not use any converter and this happened. Online some say that Dropbox (which I use) does the conversion and others say Dropbox does not...

    Prob. importing only new images from iPhone X

    I still do not know why the file numbers changed after transferring from iPhone 6s to iPhone X. I did find that on the X, under Settings > Camera > Formats, choosing High Efficiency means shooting HEIF and choosing Most Compatible means using shooting JPEG. I had mine set on High Efficiency...

    Prob. importing only new images from iPhone X

    Victoria, good to hear from you. I just came across this report: Your photos just had a massive change with iOS 11. Here's what happened and got the feeling that it's saving in this new HEIF format of iOS 11 that had caused the change of file numbers. I'll continue looking into this.

    Prob. importing only new images from iPhone X

    ***I just discovered that the file numbers of the images had changed when they were copied to X from 6s. I am going to check with AT&T who did the transfer for me to see why this happened.

    Prob. importing only new images from iPhone X

    When I had my iPhone 6s, importing only new images each time to LR 5.7 was never a problem. Now all the images have been copied onto my new iPhone X. with iOS 11.3.1. Every time I import just new images from the X to LR, all the images, old and new, get imported. If I keep them in LR, then next...

    Import Old images copied during import

    I only import (copy) new images from my iPhone. This is the first time that 166 old images got copied again along with 18 new images. When I delete one of these old images in Temporary file, it does not affect the edited master copy in LR. But what is strange is that if I import from the phone...

    Screen Calibration w/ColorMunki

    I calibrated my monitor screen and at the end ColorMunki showed the color changes on some of the sample pictures provided by X-rite. The After images always look somewhat darker but more detailed in the shadows. I ran the calibration a second time, expecting to see no difference now between the...

    Moving files

    I got it done, Cletus, by right clicking on the folder and synchronize folder.

    Moving files

    Thanks Cletus. Can you give me a little more detail on how to import using the sync function to generate the "Previous import" collection? What do I do first? I still don't know what the sync function is yet.
