    Upgrade from LR 5.7.1 to LR6.5

    Thanks for the informative replies! It looks like I will need LR 6.5 to process raw files generated by my Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS100. That, or Camera Raw plug-in version 9.5. I am holding off on subscriptions as long as I can so I guess I will convert to DNG for now. Scott

    Upgrade from LR 5.7.1 to LR6.5

    I purchased a new camera and need to upgrade from standalone LR 5.7.1 to LR6.5. Can I do this in one step or is there an intermediate step required? FYI - I am still running Mac OS 10.7.5 so I can continue to use Photoshop CS4. Thanks!

    LR automatically creating dated folders

    I normally import by uploading to my hard drive (a folder with a title). Then I import to LR. After importing to LR there are 2 copies per image on my hard drive. One in the titled folder and another in a dated folder. I am checking ADD when I import.

    LR automatically creating dated folders

    I recently bought a Nikon D750 and now LR 5.7.1 is creating duplicate copies in dated folders. How can I change this ? (FYI - I am running Lion on my Mac so I can continue using Photoshop CS4)

    Renaming files in Lightroom

    I have been renaming the files after importing. The process is easy. Johan your advise is good. I will never rename files outside of lightroom or modify the file's location outside of lightroom.

    Renaming files in Lightroom

    Thanks for your replies! I will be renaming these files with sequential numbers. I tried doing an import to test it out and LR gave the photoshop "sidecar" file a filename with a different sequential number. LR did the same thing when I renamed the files after they were already imported. I may...

    Renaming files in Lightroom

    I am getting ready to import some files ready into Lightroom and I want to rename the files on import. Most of these are Raw files (NEF). I have previously edited some of these in Photoshop and saved them as .psd files. I want Lightroom to rename a given "pair" of files (1 Raw and 1 Photoshop)...

    Copy Mac Finder paths to keyword hierarchy?

    Yeah, dragging the buried keyword hierarchy is tricky. After fumbling with it a bit I noticed that when you drag the Child keywords they would not insert easily. You have to hold them over a dividing line were between 2 top-level parent keywords. Then a blue horizontal line will glow between the...

    Copy Mac Finder paths to keyword hierarchy?

    I tested this script out and it inserted all the folder names as parent keywords. I would like to modify the script if possible. I would like the script to NOT include most of the parent keywords shown in this image of the keyword hierarchy. Most of the parent keywords are irrelevant for me...

    Upgrade from LR Version 5 to 6 - Benefits?

    Cletus - Thanks for replying to my post. I will probably upgrade my OS and LR as well. I am still thinking of the standalone version since I already own Photoshop CS4. I have the Transform tool in LR5 and it is incredibly usefull with architectural subjects. I found the full description of my...

    Upgrade from LR Version 5 to 6 - Benefits?

    I am running LR standalone version 5.7.1 and I am considering an upgrade to LR standalone version 6 assuming there are significant benefits. It looks like the upgrade price will be about US $150. There may be recent discussions on this topic but I have not found them. My current LR version 5 is...

    Using LR Develop Settings on PSD files - Pros and Cons ?

    I want my original PSD files to remain unchanged. So I am understanding that a LR edit applied to a PSD file would be non-destructive to the original PSD file. In other words, when I open the PSD file later in Photoshop (or another app that reads PSD files) the original PSD file not have no...

    Using LR Develop Settings on PSD files - Pros and Cons ?

    I have a LR catalog of native PSD files originally shot on film. Most of these are large files ranging from 25-100mb. The catalog also contains Raw files shot digitally. I want use LR as my organizational center for managing both these file types. Most of my PSD files are "Master files" so...

    Really basic keywording question

    I believe that another option is to write the asset or image metadata to a sidecar file which resides on the HD as a companion file to the original file. When LR does this the metadata from the sidecar file is accessed on export. I'm not sure if it also writes the image metadata in the LR...

    Numbers as Keywords

    Thanks for the comments about using numbers as keywords. I will make the numbers unique by adding another character and will also designate as non Exportable keywords. Cletus - I like your Smart Collection idea!

    Numbers as Keywords

    Would there be any issues to consider when using numbers as keywords? The reason I would be doing this is to identify different sizes of printed photographs that I have available for purchase. I would like to use my existing LR catalog but this may be a case for having separate catalog for this...

    Managing inventory of printed photographs in different sizes

    I only have about 100 printed photographs in stock. Going forward I will probably create most printed photographs on demand when a print is ordered. Price is not too important to me right now for any kind of tagged feature.

    Managing inventory of printed photographs in different sizes

    Tony - Thanks for your reply! I use Lightroom for my other image management functions. I know that Lightroom is not really designed for this particular task but it does have some database functionality that I could use, it gives me a visual for the photos and it shows the image filename. I have...
