I had to start one catalog from a back-up. this catalog somehow has no face recognition. The original catalog of this back-up, was on a crashed exHD with all/most (70k+ files)of the pics. The default catalog( if I open LR on laptop with no exHD attahed), is still on the laptop but has...
I recently had to redo my intire catalog as just before I could do my weekly backup my exHD packed up.. A bit of a bad 2 month as I lost 3 HD since Dec2018. After I "pointed" LR to the new hd and merged what was on the latest backup with the new one LR serched for 12H strait for faces...
At the moment I have my Lightroom folders ( LR cat. lrcat, preview.lrdata, LR setting + backups) on an external drive, as I till recently used several machines to excess LR. As I sold my I mac and got myself a 4K monitor I now work only on the laptop.
I often have the problem that, evn...
I must have at one stage dismissed a picture from face recognicion. However I found a name to a person and want to asign it in "People" view. I can highlight the photos, can go into that folder, the pictures never show up in "people" view!
What needs to be done??
Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):
For reasons of my own I have my LR catalog on a external HD. I connect this HD either on my laptop or on a iMac.
Since I have the catalog on the HD it takes 15min and more to backup the catalog, even with hardly any changes...

It most likely will be much easier than I think.
I have a folder with my LR catalog in it. Sadly over time this folder became very confusing
level 1= 2 folder ( settings date folder 4 items)
open date folder=...
I stupidly moved some pictures outside lightroom and the catalog is a mess. Even so I can see pictures in a specific folder in "FINDER" LR seems not to see them as the same I'm looking for.
IF i would go and say "find missing pictures" LR imports the found pictures to its catalog and...
I try now for some time to find a key combination where I can move my pic while zoomed in and using one of the tools(spot healing, adjustment brush, etc) lets say I want to remove some spots in a face I normaly zoom in to at least 1:2 -1:1 BUT i always have to leave the tool if I want to...
After I got my catalog about right and merged and imported from other catalogs I found to my horror copies everywhere.
A initially thought easy way to get rid of them was to go to the filter go on text "copy 1" and delete all copies. BUT between the 8 thousand odd copies where also...
after many battles with trying to get two lightroom catalogs to sync how I want it, I decided to move the LR catalog onto a external USB 3 HD where most (98%) of the pics are.
The drawback is LR becomes very sluggish and there the first question
IF i had to move the catalog on an...
I still seem, not getting it right to merge my catalogs and always have the latest edits.
I keep all pictures on a external drive. Now and than I move new pics from either iMac or laptop to this external drive. Than I edit/delete pics either on laptop or on iMac on this drive. On top I...
Hi Guys and Girls
I did a bit of a boo boo. I copied picture folders outside lightroom onto a external HD.
What is the best way of not loosing all the edits of the pic.?
Undo and redo everything via LR (some pics however are on Laptop, some desktop some exHD) would be a mission!
As it looks I left my external drive with my pics in a hotelroom and the staff " did not" find it!!
Luckely I have all pics twice backed up. The question is will the backup have all adjustments?
I thought I could open a pic that is on the missing drive, LR will tell me it cant find the...
I would like to load my Back-up hard drive into LR As per usual a back-up should have the same than the original.! As far as I understand the way LR works, the program would load the back-up pics as new pics into the catalog. However this would mess-up the picture count totally. One of the...
I seem not to be winning!
I spend days on my laptop assigning names to faces in the "people" tab.
I exported the catalog onto a external drive, imported from this catalog and none of the new names I added on the laptop show up in my master catalog!! Am I missing something??
Same old same old question, merge or import??
My main picture folder is on a external hard drive. Folder hierarchy is time based. 2017;01, 2017;02 etc.
On the iMac, if I'm home I start a new folder lets say 2017;03 all pictures I'll take while home I put in there. Now I go on Safari and I...
I seem to have some blond moment again.
I search the web up and down but do not find a solution to what I want.
I think it was You Jim Wilde, who said "we have a MASTER and a MOBILE catalog! I did that on my iMAC and thanks to you, it is perfect and up and running. All the pictures 60K+ are on a...
Hi all and a awesome 2017 to come
I have all my pics on a mobile drive and lightroom installed on 3 different computer. The question is,: if I want to show a buddy of mine some pics and the changes I have done to it but do not want to haul my laptop around, which would be the best file format...
As I had to get completely set-up afresh, some settings had to be adjusted.
The one I can;t find is how to stop LR to create time based subfolders.
I choose a folder and LR creates subfolders within this folder. Drives me nuts!!
Otherwise all here, a awesome adventures and positive, venture...
I guess this question was asked a thousand time but i could not find the thread, sorry!
I got a new desktop computer and would like to do two things
Keep one copy on my laptop, which I take with me on travel.
Have a copy of that catalog on my iMac.
After every trip I load the...
I recently got a second hand 1D x. One of the first thing I did was to format the cf card that came with the camera. I also use one of my old cards from my 1D IV.
I use a card reader to import directly to LR. Recently pictures are on the LR import screen not in the order I took them but...
Until now I was under the impression that if I have a picture in loupe view or even grid view in the Library module, and I go to my keyword list right-click it and than choose "create keyword inside ....." this newly created keyword will be assigned to the pictures selected.
Now I realize...
