    Custom Sorting Photos in a Folder that contain Virtual Copies

    The problem is now resolved but I thought I would share my experience. I had approximately 200 photos in folder which I imported into LR problem I re-ordered the photos using the custom sort.. no problem I renamed the photos XXX0001 to XXX0200 inorder that they would have the...

    One particular photo simply will not sync from LR Classic to mobile

    I also had this problem. Nearly drove me mad. Just completely remove the photo from LR starting with "all synced photos" (if its there). Then let LR complete any other syncing that is going on, turn off LR and even reboot your computer. Then try reimporting. If that still doesn't work then try...

    What Am I Missing??

    Agree. If you are viewing on your phone then its much better to use the "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom" app. I have only ever used the Web site when my access was limited to a 3rd party computer.

    What Am I Missing??

    If you have already created a collection then just drag those photos into it. If you have not yet created a collection then select the photos > Library > New Collection. Yes otherwise the photos will not sync. I only pause when editing. Yes they are only virtual. If you delete the collection...

    What Am I Missing??

    I hope that in the next round of name changes Adobe adopt the term "Cloudy version" as coined by Cletus ;)

    Yes this is a very important point.

    What Am I Missing??

    Ken, Yes I do this directly from the Lightroom App on my phone. I simply click the share Icon (square box with an arrow pointing upwards) and then get a list of options. Choose the share option (same icon) and this then prompts you to choose a file size. You then get the usual options for...

    What Am I Missing??

    Here is a link to an earlier post of mine. Please note that my explanation is rather long winded but its actually very simple. As Phil and Jim have said try to keep it as simple as possible. My way of doing it is convenient for me but others may find simpler ways. I suggest you have a play and...

    What Am I Missing??

    Completely agree. However, I do use the Cloud to transfer my phone photos to Classic. I also sync smart previews of all my photos from Classic to the Cloud which does not take up any storage allowance and which allows me to view them remotely on my phone or other device and also allows me to...

    Why is JPEG image changing after RAW file is Imported ??

    What you are asking is often asked by users new to LR. I asked the same question when I started. When LR converts the RAW file to a view-able photo it cannot replicate the camera produced Jpeg. This I understand is because Adobe do not have access to the camera makers algorithms. All it can do...

    Keyword updates in LR Classic CC don't sync to the cloud (Lightroom CC)

    Yes I have. What you say is exactly how it works. As Johan states it works the first time you sync provided that xmp files have been saved and you have not created smart previews for those photos. Before syncing therefore I just select all the photos to be synced and save to xmp (Ctrl+S) then...

    Create import keyword with date and time

    It is probably not a feature because the import date is a meaningless value to most people. If you really want to have the import date as a keyword you can achieve this manually to hundreds of photos in about 5 seconds upon import, provided you remember to do it.

    Unable to delete rejected photos

    In the Library Module in the LH panel under Catalog click on "All Photographs". Then filter for rejected photos. All (and only) photos that have been "x" rejected should then appear. Select the photos you want to delete (presumably all of them) and then right click "Remove Photo..." and click on...

    new iPhone, new sync?

    Jim I think you misread the OP. It appears that the photos are not duplicated on the Iphone. They are only duplicated in the "Adobe Cloud" because the Iphone Lightroom CC software didn't recognize that they were already in the Cloud. This issue doesn't appear to have anything to do with ICloud.

    new iPhone, new sync?

    This appears to be another of those issues which arise when you let software do things automatically for you. It all works fine until it doesn't. I don't let Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC (for Iphone) automatically do anything. I tell it what to upload and when.

    Migrating photos from LR6.x to LRCC

    When you open your new LR Classic you should be prompted to convert your LR6 catalog. If it doesn't then you have to manually open up your LR6 catalog (whilst in LR Classic - File > Open Catalog) and it should then prompt you to convert.

    Catalogs Continuity and passing images on by generation

    This something I have thought about a lot but have never come up with a viable solution. In the old print days there was less clutter to deal with and everyone knows where the photo albums or shoe boxes are or they can be easily found. However, with digital there are photos all over the place...

    Import crashes when synchronising

    If that is the case, then I suggest (as a test) trying to synchronize with a folder which contains just a few photos and see if it works on that folder. If it does then we would appear to have the same issue.

    Import crashes when synchronising

    I had (and still have) a similar problem when trying to synchronize with a folder that contains 1000s of photos. How about yours ? In the end I was forced to import the usual way.

    Duplicating photos

    If I were you I would isolate several photos and their duplicates by adding them to quick collection and then start investigating. You say one is in a folder and one isn't. If you right click on the photo and select "show folder in library" it will tell you which Lightroom folder it is in. If...

    Asking me to sign-in

    I had exactly the same issue 2 days ago with Adobe Acrobat DC which is also a subscription service. I was at a clients office and was not connected to the internet. Fortunately I remembered my password. It was working fine from my office prior to that and it seems to have been triggered by the...

    Instagram workflow?

    Yes that is correct so I only have Smart Previews in the Cloud. I find this sufficient for IG.

    Instagram workflow?

    I use my Iphone 8 for the whole process (@hongkongmarkn). My work flow is as follows :- 1. For phone photos I usually use the Iphone's default camera App but occasionally use Lightroom CC's camera App. 2. For all photos, whether taken on my phone or my DSLR camera, I will import to Lightroom...
