    Instagram workflow?

    I am going to be more active on Instagram this year (@RobOK). Can people post their instagram workflows, with consideration for the following... * iphone taken pictures -- do you use LR as the camera app? How do you find it for that? * after your image is in LR mobile, any Instagram specific...

    New to external editing - basic question

    I am exploring using Luminar for external editing. As far as I understand you can do this only as a rendered TIFF. So your RAW development is frozen in Lightroom and then you can do adjustments after the round trip to the external editor. Question 1 -- is it possible to go back to the external...

    Predictions on Lr Classic and CC (laptop) interoperability?

    Hello crystal ball gazers — Will there eventually be full compatibility between Classic catalogs and CC, like for collections and tagging and other things? A different way of asking is I want the capability of Classic on two computers (home big screen and laptop) running off the same catalog...

    Can I tell which added locally

    Mostly I have images synced to cloud from a Mac mini and then on my laptop I use LR CC to view those collections. I think I added pictures Locally into that also. Is there a way to tell the difference which are synced in, vs. "added in" via my laptop? Thanks, Rob.

    (Mac only) Symbolic Link to sync Presets with Dropbox across two machines

    I was using a Symlink to point my Presets folder to a Dropbox folder which then synced across to another machine that had the same Symlink. Symlink are basically folder pointers. With the latest upgrade, I am don't think that will work, I think the Symlinks are disabled in Library folders where...

    Personal style and workflow getting back to basics

    I have been long time Lightroom user for enthusiast travel, personal, and a little street photography. I have too many presets, some my own, some bought, and some free. Now camera profiles are in the mix. Mostly I shoot Nikon (Df and D750) but also Fuji X100f and Sony. For a while I had a style...

    Keyboard Shortcuts -- not the same!

    I'm starting to use LR CC on my laptop to do some culling and light editing while I am away from my desktop (images originally imported into Classic and synced to CC). First, there is no Auto Advance on rating/selects. That is a pain. For a quick work around you can set your view to exclude...

    Workflow - mostly Classic with a little CC

    I would like to work 90% on Classic (home computer) and occasional imports on CC on my laptop when traveling. Is there any hybrid workflow that makes sense of this all? I did some this past week and now in my Mac Mini (LR Classic) I have new date-based folders, which is okay, but they are not...

    Catalogs name of this forum section - folders?

    Hi, What does the reference to "folders" mean? I think you are trying to distinguish perpetual vs. subscription, no? So call it "subscription" or delete the parenthetical phrases on all of them. I don't think calling the CC version "cloud" is quite right either. I think you are trying to...

    Incompatibilities between Classic and LR CC (when used together)

    In terms of using Classic and LR CC (whether web or mobile device), there seems to be a couple of significant things that don't sync. Maybe you'd call them incompatible, or maybe a better word: * Collections vs Folders -- Classic uses Collection Sets to group Collections, CC uses Albums (same)...

    Catalogs Had some corruption going to Classic, how i solved...

    Some details of my conversion to LR Classic. In going to Classic, LR does a catalog format conversion. In doing that I discovered some Catalog Corruption. I had backups but the backups had it too. I had not done an Optimize or Integrity check (and I am not clear which of those would catch it)...

    Your broader photo ecosystem

    Hello, With the new versions, not sure where to post this. This is an open ended post, not a specific question. LR is the core of my post processing but I am more and more thinking about the whole ecosystem, somewhat inspired by this podcast/blog from Martin Bailey...

    Adobe: On Lightroom Performance

    Did not see this posted here yet. Adobe finally admits LR is slow! While I am not impressed by their post, there is an opportunity to give them feedback via a link. On Lightroom Performance I actually don't so as much photography due to dreading post processing. I am doing more JPG (Fuji)...

    Catalog corruption problem happening recently

    Hello, I've been having a strange and troubling catalog issue. When I close LR CC (Mac OS) it asks to backup and i say yes. As it is doing that it starts another request for backing up (like two backups as once). Then it does not close down properly and when I go to re-open the catalog it finds...

    Should I even upgrade to LR 6/CC ?

    I think Adobe created the two pricing models to divert attention from there not being that much in LR6, at least for me. I don't do HDR or Panoramas, maybe one day I will. Face Recognition would be fun, but not a reason to update. Speed -- I am on a MacBook Pro mostly, does that even HAVE a...

    Naming months a specific way on import

    I have used Downloader Pro for a long time, and am trying to move to built in Lightroom importer. I'd like my hierarchy to look like this: 2012 - 01-JAN - 02-FEB etc. I can get it to do this: 2012 - 2012-01 - 2012-02 but not my original way. Is there any way that I am not seeing...

    Organize for sets of Web Galleries

    I have a ton of albums in an online gallery of have maintained using Gallery2 (open source). I am thinking of using LR with all the vairous gallery plugins available to now maintain a whole website of albums. Maybe a dumb question, but once you create an album and export it from LR, is it just...
