    Adding time to one's Photography Plan subscription

    Yes, that's exactly what I've done in the past. But I wonder if it's changed? the problem is that software is usually a no-return item, and I wouldn't want to get stiffed.

    Catalogs Storing Photos and Catalog in Dropbox

    You could travel with smart previews instead of originals if space is an issue. And where your catalogued photos are depends on where you put them. If you imported them or moved them to your hard drive, that's where they are. If you didn't, they aren't there. You have control of that via Lr at...

    Adding time to one's Photography Plan subscription

    I was considering adding another year to my existing Photo Plan Lr/Ps/20GB subscription when I noticed Amazon had it on sale for $100/yr. My current subscription runs out in 2021. In order to be sure it could be done, I contacted Adobe support via a chat (that took almost an hour) only to have...

    Upgrading iMac query

    I use a 2014 retina iMac with Lr and have no issues. Sure, I'd want Lr to go faster, but everyone does. The retina screen is essential. Not only is it more beautiful than a 2009 screen, but because of the higher resolution editing is more effective: you can see more of your image onscreen at say...

    Keywording People

    And in general, if you see ">" in the keyword entry space it usually means that Lr has found different instances of the keyword, like when you have California>San Jose and Costa Rica>San Jose. That way you can tell which Jose you've got. If you just see "San Jose" it means there's no ambiguity...

    Keywording People

    I believe that | is read by Lr if it finds it in a string of keywords during an import. So if you enter "text|textx|textxx" in a flat keyword list in some other application and save it to an image file, then when Lr imports it will generate a hierarchy like thus: text>textx>textxx. And per usual...

    metadata to hashtags

    Thanks! Missed that. Do you include hashtag symbols themselves in the list?

    metadata to hashtags

    Yeah, I don't where that warning came from. But I turned it off. Still haven't quite figured out the hashtags though....

    metadata to hashtags

    No; Classic. There are no plugins in CC. Ignore rhe warning and make sure you have the latest version of the plugin.

    metadata to hashtags

    The plugin is still working for me. But I'm not sure about hashtags; I enter them in IG afterwards. Version 0.6.1594.

    Keyboard Tamer on Mac - does it still work?

    I'm not a Keyboard Tamer user, but on macOS I do use the Keyboard preference pane to add custom keyboard shortcuts to Lr Classic. A problem, however, is that you cannot override default Lr shortcuts. IOW, Open in Reference View is still going to be Shift-R. But you can add say a keyboard...

    Catalogs Continuity and passing images on by generation

    Well, think about how we used to pass on images. We had nice photo albums done by our more OCD relatives, with dates and descriptions, nicely organized, maybe one album per family. Or nice slideshows, with labels on the slide holders, all oriented properly. Aaaah. Then we had the shoebox of...

    Enhanced Detail

    I see it kinda like the "experimental" features found in Lr CC's iOS apps. Might get better...maybe Adobe tracks the ED use (ouch, maybe unfortunate acronym) with those of us that share application data and uses that data to improve it).

    Enhanced Detail

    Yeah, no noticeable difference on my Pentax and Olympus raw files so far. Does camera or subject matter? Seems the examples tend toward Fuji and cityscapes with artificial objects.

    Is any catalog info stored with the software modules?

    This could help: https://digital-photography-school.com/5-ways-to-use-lightroom-virtual-copies-better/ And there's even a plugin that you can use to create VC's from a whole lot of presets all at once in case you want to preview them in full size: Excessor – Capture Monkey

    Is any catalog info stored with the software modules?

    I agree; I don't understanding what you're trying to do. If you want to start editing an image anew, just hit the reset button to undo all the adjustments.

    Library module Edit EXIF camera model ?

    When did you create the virtual copy? it will only contain the metadata from the original image at the time it was created. So if you added to the original AFTER the VC was created you'll have to copy it from the original to the VC. As in Metadata>Copy Metadata... then use the paste command.

    Family Photo Keyword Hierarchy

    And note that Lr can write the keywords to files, and will write the hierarchy as a flat list as well. So it will be just a list when seen in other applications. That might or might not be a problem. You can manage that to some degree by choosing to not export some. I have meta-informational...

    GPS "Direction" metadata in Lightroom

    For anyone else interested, turns out a bug in an earlier pre-8 version of Classic prevented Lr from reading the GPSImageDirection exif value correctly (and altitude too I guess). Hence the problem, now fixed. A "read metadata" operation will correct older images so that the Direction field in...

    GPS "Direction" metadata in Lightroom

    Unfortunately it does not appear Lr even reads this from the file, so it never stores it (even in the Direction field, which is lame because it contains text, not numerals anyway). But because Lr never gets the metadata there isn't a way for Mr Friedl's plugin to create a way to view it...

    GPS "Direction" metadata in Lightroom

    My cameras record not only GPS location info, but also the orientation of the camera, ie the direction the lens is pointed. This is recorded in a standard exif tag, "GPSImgDirection" (see here for others: GPS Tags). Unfortunately, this metadata is apparently not read by Lr Classic. Classic...

    The only tech preview that shows up is long exposure. No depth mask.

    Depth masking on iPhone

    Unfortunately depth mode (the tech preview) doesn't seem to be available on the new iPhones (Xs and Xs Max).

    metadata conflicts: how to view differences + does photosweeper touch metadata?

    You'd have to ask Photosweeper to get a definitive answer, but I don't think they write the "mark" you use in it to the photo metadata. If you use Photosweeper, you can look at the metadata side by side in the "side by side" mode, and it will show conflicts in red. If you have exiftool, then...

    Lightroom CC Classic Collections

    How do you get the info from the desktop to the laptop, or vice versa? The screen shots shows two different catalogs, each on different machines, hence the different sizes. Do you synch then somehow? Lr Classic doesn't synch changes between catalogs automatically.
