    Very instructive, thanks Fergusen! I'll read it again at a later time to absorb more of that densely packed information :)

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Huh, interesting. I thought they'd save a bit more., maybe 25%.. Wow! didn't know TIFFS were THAT large relative to DNG! Thanks for the info.

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    LRList001 1st paragraph: Yep. Got that, after thinking about it for a moment :) It's also called market competition ;) 2nd: TIFF - I'm familiar with it insofar as all of my heritage photo scans are in high resolution TIFFS, and you're right, it does serve the same "non-lossy" purposes. They...

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Thanks Fergusen, The most interesting paragraph here regarding something I didn't know, is: Metadata is widely supported, e.g. keywords. Develop settings are widely NOT supported; a few will support things like crops/straighten, maybe things like exposure, but none that I know do anywhere near...

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Hi Fergusen, Fair enough. I probably could have expressed the question better :) Here's my problem as two parts: I recently attempted to upgrade my Mac and through ignorance almost lost my catalog. I have since reverted back and have my catalog again, but it made me more afraid of losing...

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Operating System: Mac OSX Yosemite Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Lightroom 5 I'm indecisive at this point about what to do regarding the push to subscription services. That got me thinking of the relative non-transferability of LRs xmp files, especially if they get...

    Library module What are the top-level words in your hierarchical keywor set?

    I currently have the following: _ANIMALS animal _FAMILY _FOOD _METADATA _PEOPLE people _PLACES _PLANTS I know there is a good reason for the duplicate list some of the keywords, but I haven't worked on my photos in a bit and forgot! The too level Metadata keyword is used for my workflow...

    Questions about LR for Android..

    Thanks Jim. I did some reading and watched what videos were out there (mostly from fall 2017 so nothing really recent about all these programs), and I was surprised and...disappointed.. that there was no synching. Seems to totally defeat the purpose of using a mobile app for me at least, since...

    Questions about LR for Android..

    Mobile Operating System: Android Desktop Operating System: macbook pro Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): 5 classic I have not read much about the LR app - I have been too busy rebelling against the idea of a subscription- but I suddenly have discovered a few reasons which are...

    Krogh's Book on LR Organizing Worth it?

    This is a GREAT first step to figuring out the BEST keywording system for YOU. Definitely take a look at my articles. It sounds like you too struggle with getting the photos themselves keyworded, and that's critical (at least for me) to make the most out of LR's organizing features. Feel free...

    Krogh's Book on LR Organizing Worth it?

    If you are interested in one perspective regarding personal heritage collections - digital and paper - and how to integrate, I wrote a series on it using LR. Feel free to read up on them here: Managing Legacy Photos with Lightroom

    Krogh's Book on LR Organizing Worth it?

    Lambys!!! NIICE! :) I'll get back to you on my own keyword scheme after tonight - I don't have laptop at work with me. Keep in mind that opinions are many and sometimes intense, so take them all with a grain of salt, and yes- knowing how your situation compares with others makes a big...

    Krogh's Book on LR Organizing Worth it?

    I loved Peter's the DAM book, and I did purchase the Organizing Photos book, but for me, I found the book version much more captivating. I can't seem to get through all the videos, and from what I did look at it didn't add much to my knowledge. I do also think doing some internet research and...

    Catalogs Best practices for preserving LR when upgrading OS

    Operating System: Macbook Pro, OS 10.10.5 "Yosemite" (currently) Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): 5.7.1 So, I having attempted to upgrade my computer once, and having an almost disaster, I am now super suspicious and want to take every precaution to preserve LR (and my whole...

    Catalogs Reintalled LR5-need to find catalog from backup

    GREAT news!! my catalog is BACK!! I wound up restoring my whole laptop from the time machine backup, and that enabled me to get back into LR as I had before. I had some cleanup to do, which was my issue, but all is looking good now. I did find out that the catalog file I had been seeing was...

    Catalogs Reintalled LR5-need to find catalog from backup

    Worked with Apple via chat for over 2 hours. Was able to copy the .lrcat file to my desktop, but now when I try to open it, either by directly double clicking, or by going into LR first and going to "open catalog", nothing happens. Nothing. It just blinks. Am I missing something here...

    Catalogs Reintalled LR5-need to find catalog from backup

    Well this situations seems to be getting worse... I looked in my most recent backup drive, and couldnt' find a catalog file anywhere else within it. In addition I plugged in a second external drive that I have used before, none of the backups on THAT one work either.. This is could become really...

    Catalogs Reintalled LR5-need to find catalog from backup

    Hmm.. that may be a problem. I don't know that I've ever had a catalog FOLDER. I have two files -lrcat and lrpreviews that are always together, but I don't ever remember them being in their own folder.... Is that normal?

    Catalogs Reintalled LR5-need to find catalog from backup

    Johan, Thanks for continuing to hang in here with me as I struggle through this.. What you say makes sense. Tonight when I get home I'll first search through the backup drive to see if I can find the catalog file anywhere else. Once I've identified the catalog file, how do I copy it in a way...

    Catalogs Reintalled LR5-need to find catalog from backup

    Although that seems obvious based on the error message it's incorrect. I specifically copied the catalog file to my LOCAL drive - as mentioned - to the same location ON MY HARD DRIVE where it had been stored previously. In addition, when I went to "open an existing catalog" in LR, I...

    Catalogs Reintalled LR5-need to find catalog from backup

    Thanks Johan. This is precisely what I tried to do the other day. I thought I had succeeded when I seemed to have successfully copied that catalog file into the location on my hard drive where I've kept it previous to the re-install. (users\pictures\lightroom). I had moved the catalog created...
