• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • 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.

    Can Lightroom fix this?

    Hi Marc Noise will be a result of the scan and resolution, not the original ISO. What resolution are the images? I assume you are referring to local adjustment for noise for the sky; try a little negative clarity also on this.

    Lightroom Desktop (cloud based) - too slow to edit photos efficiently

    Hi Chris Processing is local, not on the cloud. Changes are synced back to the cloud, so I'd suggest check your PC (is the disk full? Need defragmenting? All those type of checks)

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    Jim, you are of course totally correct. The context seemed to be using different catalogs, which I related to the Classic system, whereas of course the could doesn't use the same concept.

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    Just to add, once set (the folder for the mobile downloads) and once the photos from mobile have arrived in Classic, if you don't want to be able to view them on mobile devices (going back to Phil's comments) then you can delete them from All Synced Photographs - Classic won't delete the local...

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    If you mean Desktop as in Classic (so sync'd through a Collection locally) then yes. If by Desktop you mean Lightroom CC (as was) - cloud - then no, because you won't be able to access the photos in the Cloud App (even locally) as it relies on the cloud as the storage.

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    Correct. Some people like to tick this on their main computer just so they have an additional (local) backup, especially a good idea prior to the current release when there was no way to undelete.

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    Local cache for the images held in the cloud, so LR doesn't rely on downloading every time to view or edit using the Desktop App. Mobile also has cache. You can additionally store photos locally, just check: Store a copy of all originals at the specified location checkbox in Preferences >...

    Any limitations on number of installs for the Lightroom cloud app?

    All correct except on Lightroom (was CC, now just Lightroom or the Cloud version as we're discussing here) there is no catalog, it's all photos that have been uploaded to the cloud

    Keep set Ratio locked

    Mike That's expected behavior - you say he lock icon was locked, therefore the Aspect will remain on the aspect of the image just selected (so Original) - what are you expecting it to do? Perhaps we're not understanding the question?

    LR will only upload some of my pictures from a shoot.

    Hi George The XT-3 is supported from 8.0 (see Adobe supported camera list) - any reason you haven't updated to that? https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-supported-cameras.html Paul

    Having problems on Huawei Mate 20 Lite

    Hi Robert and welcome to the Forum! Do you get the same issue if you use a different app on the phone? That'd help us understand if this is Lightroom or (more probably) connected to the phone.

    Can't import photos LR6.14

    Sometimes that's not a bad idea, but a lot of work Zack! You could try sorting your duplicates (thread below just updated) How do I clean up duplicate photos? | The Lightroom Queen Also, you might consider writing the edits you did to the photos before the new Import (so Ctrl-S / Cmd-S) - you...

    Can't import photos LR6.14

    Hi Zack Okay, moving photos is one thing - take a read of Victoria's Blog on the topic, steps through it well: How do I move only my photos to another hard drive, leaving the catalog where it is? | The Lightroom Queen You can get LR to sort into years / month (and even day) on Import, but...

    Suddenly prints look dull (lacks contrast and blacks)

    Hi Aaron What color space are you using? This can be the effect of you try printing AdobeRGB to a printer instead of sRGB

    Zack Welcome to the Forum! Are you intending to move the files at the same time? Or did you intend to use Add in the dialogue?

    Can you add watermarks in lightroom mobile yet?

    Enhance Details

    Most images it isn't making much of a difference (actually can't see any!) But I do have Fuji XT-2 images and on some there you can see a definite difference in some detail - but only really zoomed in. It would matter if I wanted to print them really large, but otherwise for a general look they...
