    Smaller .Tiff Files?

    You can instruct PS as to what kind to TIFF to save. You will want 16bit Compressed.. Each layer may multiply the number of pixels by the number of layers so size can accumulate exponentially. Lightroom does not export a layered file so you can flatten all of the PS layers into one and the...

    Renaming my harddisk and maintaining link to LR catalog?

    In your folder panel there is a Volume listing If Volume '2R4_Data'. Is renamed "Photos" the folders that were pathed in LR as being on '2R4_Data' are now marked as missing. Relinking the top most folder to "Photos" will put LR back on the right track.

    Catalog backup not working since Windows update

    Silly question (I Know) but have you rebooted the OS since the update? Rebooting will clear any detritus that may be resident in the working storage (free space) A reboot can't hurt. BTW, the important free space is on C:\ where the Windows update created a bunch of temporary file and...

    Reverse sort in folder area

    Adobe does not intend the user to attempt to organize by folders due to the limitations of the file systems. Collections (as mentioned earlier) is the flexible organizational tool developed by Adobe for managing your image assets. If folders met the needs for image organization, we would...

    Google Drive is a cloud storage location. Google Backup & Sync app. Is a back up service that maps local file to a copy stored on the cloud. So, yes. You images and catalog file and any other folder that you designate to the Backup & Sync app should be available to be restored from Google drive

    Lightroom Classic not starting up!

    The ".lock" file only is present when Lightroom is running or was stopped suddenly. The full file name share the catalog name but with an extension of ".lock". It is located in the same folder where the catalog file "{your catalog name}.lrcat" is located

    Reverse sort in folder area

    My suggestion is to hide the folder panel and use collections. These can be named in a hierarchical fashion and sorted alpha numerically. If you begin each Collection, Collection Set with a number, you will sort based upon the priority of the collection. A Smart Collection based upon say...

    The current process version is always used as a default in the Develop module. Images developed in older versions of LR will retain the process version used when that image was last developed. You can change the process version to use an older or newer process version. The process version...

    Impossible to upload directly into Classic?

    I think the problem lies with how Apple is managing the iPhone/iPad. You should be about to connect the iDevice to the Mac with the Lightning/USB cable and let the iPhone appear as another removable device like a camera card of disk drive. Once recognized as such, you should then be able to...

    LR constantly crashing (on mac)

    I'm glad you have ID's the failing drive. I hope everything important is backed up. I usually Follow Apples release dates and up date immediately. I have not had problem But for others I'd recommend waiting for the decimal 1 release. Mojave is already at 10.14.6 and certainly mature enough...

    How about disconnecting the EHD (and one by one any other connected devices) and report back. Victoria is suggesting a hardware issue and I am inclined to agree. Why have you not upgraded to Mojave?

    Confused: converting from Lightroom CC to Lightroom classic

    All of the information collected on images in the Cloudy version of Lightroom is stored in the cloud. The Lightroom Classic uses a local catalog file to store all of the information collected on images. Once you have Lightroom Classic installed, all you should need to do is create a new...

    Delete all and start all over again

    While this is true, and I don't have any first hand knowledge, the migration of Lightroom to another photo processing app, has been describes as less than ideal and almost always utilizes the Lightroom catalog (*.lrcat file) rather than XMP.
