• 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.

    Corrupt CR2 files after importing from Compact Flash to HDD using Lightroom

    Honestly, I don't know. We've seen these cases reported numerous times over the years this forum has been in operation, and the problem: 1) isn't resolved to the user's satisfaction, or 2) turns out to be related to some piece of the hardware chain. If I'm reading right, you have not tried...

    Corrupt CR2 files after importing from Compact Flash to HDD using Lightroom

    Well, if they're CR2 raw files, you can rule out Lightroom as the cause. PERIOD. With one tiny exception, which is not pertinent here, Lightroom *NEVER* writes to a raw file type. Hence any corruption has to derive from some other operation. Even when the file is copied from the flash card...

    Well, unfortunately my advice here would be to "Ask Cletus, he's always working on stuff like that." If John Beardsworth doesn't have any ideas either, I don't know what to tell you...

    Metadata Presets

    Keyword Ordering

    In general, you would simply drag the child keyword 'Houston' to the parent level 'Texas' in the keyword list. Haven't done this in a while, but it used to be *very* finicky with positioning the cursor exactly right to drop at the higher level. The cursor will change visible state when you're in...

    LR5 catalog conflicts...

    edit: ooops, 3 minutes behind the times. I said basically the same things as Mark, with a substantial infusion of hot air. :) 1) There are several 'file open' options lurking in the Lr preferences. The most insidious of which is 'Open Last Used' (or similar verbiage, I don't have it in front...

    Jpeg resets

    Look at the lower right in Develop, and see if Auto-sync is turned on. If so, flip the switch to disable it. This is a moot point if you only have one image selected in the filmstrip as you make adjustments. So if that's not the problem, you'll have to tell us more.

    Windows 7 is trying to open .NEF files with Acrobat

    Taking what Denis very correctly said, and adding a little more background, if you're interested: ... you appear to be attempting to 'Associate' an image file type with Lr as the Windows 'Open With' application, two things: 1) Lr is designed and intended to be 'associated' with files of the...

    Jpeg resets

    What? Can you explain the process a bit more thoroughly? Maybe I'm dense here, but nothing you said makes any sense to *me* at all. (No offense, I'm just not understanding the specific problem.) Shots need exposure tweak. So did you apply that, if so, how? Develop kept previous settings. I...

    Problem Seeing Photos on Desktop

    ...or if you're *absolutely positive* it's already in the Catalog (and the associated folder Allen 2002-2006) then, just hit Delete and 'Remove' it (and each of the remaining 106) from the Catalog. Remove will only remove that particular instance of the photo from the catalog. It won't delete...

    Lightroom 4.4 is available

    ...Geoff is correct about Lightroom itself not needing the ACR update, but as you remember correctly, mismatches between Lr and PS/ACR versions can cause 'Edit In...' problems.

    Is this my 'sync' not working or am I missing something?

    Library or Develop? Grid or Filmstrip? Have you in fact selected multiple images to Sync to? Do you understand the 3 levels of 'Selectedness' in Lightroom, i.e. Unselected, Selected and Most Selected? Sync will transfer the chosen settings from the *single* Most Selected to all Selected (one...

    Lighroom 4 Catalog has gone missing!!

    ....as Geoff suggests, use a search tool to find all files of type *.LRCAT. Note that your spelling of IRCAT is incorrect.

    Catalogue won't open

    In the folder/directory where the catalog resides, look for a file named the same as the catalog, with the file type of *.LRCAT.LOCK. Delete that file. If you see one named .JOURNAL, leave it alone. Oh, and welcome to the forums!

    How long to save Backups and Catalog Previews?

    Aha, I didn't think of that one, Cletus. That likely explains the situation. Fingers crossed, that nothing valuable is missing.

    How long to save Backups and Catalog Previews?

    Hard to say, Jeff. What exactly are the several thousand items being deleted? There are only three places I can think of offhand, where Lr has data on the order of 'several thousand items'. 1) The Library preview cache, in the folder/package catalog_name.lrdata 2) The Adobe Camera Raw cache...

    My LR4.3 64bit started crashing today. Can't get by today's imports.
