    Map module & Location

    Has the map module changed how it works. I've just manually added locations for a batch of photos, entering Sandylands as the location. I then placed 36 of these images on the map module by dragging them and placing them where they were shot. On returning to the Library view with the...

    Crop, save & Export

    Not sure if this is the right forum or not. I am digitizing old photos. Batches are being scanned in with an average of 5 - 6 photos of different sizes per scan (Epson scanner). I then duplicated each image using Windows to create 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 copies as appropriate, imported in...

    Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here. I've stared at it for several hours and cannot see my mistake. Scanning in a approx 750 old photos.

    Do not Synchronise

    Has anyone discovered a way to mark a directory as "Do not Synchronise". I have several folders that I cannot move to a different location easily (ie without changing some preferences/options in the program that access these folders). Most notably a sample database which includes many photos...

    Web photos not in albums

    According to LR Web, I have approx. 600 more photos in "All Photos" than I have in my Albums. However, I cannot see any way to identify where these images are. If I look at "All Photos", the total seems to match the "All Photos" figure, but there is no way I can see to identify any images not...

    Back-up Catalog - Helper.db file query

    As far as I can see, the automated back-up system in LR Classic does not back-up this new(ish) helper.db file, nor does there seem to be a way to change settings to do so. Am I right in thinking it is a bit like previews in that it will be re-created if needed, so there is little or no need to...

    Lightroom Camera

    Another Mobile question for you. I have a Sony mobile phone. Lightroom Mobile on the phone lets me use the phone's camera from within Lightroom giving me all the advantages of doing so. However my Samsung Tablet (a 15 month old Tab S2) does not let me do so. The phone icon is missing from the...

    Managing Collections

    I now have several hundred Collections, and I'm beginning to lose control of the management of it. I've followed the advice of some on here and built many admin based libraries for no location, no keyword, camera type etc. I know that in some, I have used (in error) similar but different terms...

    Editing smart collections - is there a smart way?

    I have used John Beardsworth's idea for workflow for a little while to see if I like it. However, having tried it out, I now need to do some housekeeping on it. I know what I want to do (primarily editing the "collection Source name"), and editing each existing collection individually will be...

    Having a problem with Selections. I'm in a (standard) Collection. No matter what I select, LR decides that it wants to select the first two images in the Collection. The three images show the start position when I open LR, then I use CTRL+D to remove any selections. A second or so later with...

    People & Keywords

    I've put a lot of effort in the past in adding Keywords for People's names. When LR added the People function, it has ended up using the same keyword. Not sure if LR did this or whether the was user error in ignorance. Anyway I now have many images which have a people Keyword, but have not...

    LR CC is telling me that I have just under 5000 images where the location country is "FRance" instead of "France" I know however that not all of them are actually spelled incorrectly, but I cannot see a way to get LR to show me just those that are actually spelled wrongly. I've had a look at...
