  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    Are full-size and smart previews regenerated and saved after develop edits?

    What an interesting thread, I've never fully understood this before.

    Lr Classic v 9

    Unless it's changed I think the £14.98 is just for the first 12 months - I'd more than happy if it was a permanent price!

    Lr Classic v 9

    Yes, I'm in the same position re Fuji and DxO.

    Lr Classic v 9

    I've come to like the subscription model - it saves me having to budget for annual upgrades, then trying to decide whether to upgrade or not. The only thing I'd like to see is the cost of additional cloud storage come down.

    Classic taking a long time to load after external drive reconnected.

    Thanks that's a good thought - I moved from Mac to Windows last year and keep forgetting about the anti-virus software.

    Classic taking a long time to load after external drive reconnected.

    I've recently returned to using Classic so don't remember this being a problem in the past. My images are held on an external drive and I often edit on my laptop with the drive disconnected - Classic opens quickly on these occasions. When I do reconnect the drive and load Classic for the first...

    Online storage

    Hi Alan, I should have thought of that! I can manage with 1TB at the moment as I just upload raw files and no videos. I would like to see Adobe revew their online storage prices though.

    Online storage

    Maybe an obvious question, but have you thought of just switching over to Lightroom CC completely? The desktop version is still lacking on the library management and output sides but is developing rapidly. It certainly makes sharing your images across multiple a very smooth experience.

    How do I display only images by Capture date

    Another useful tool is to right click on an image and select Show Photos from Same Date. Handy after a keyword search when you want to find photos from the same shoot.

    Migrating Classic catalogue for the second time after deleting Lightoom CC catalogue

    Thanks Jim. Having images in the cloud to download into Photoshop is the big attraction to me of LRCC. I don't always have the external drive with my image library attached to my laptop - this should all work very well.

    Migrating Classic catalogue for the second time after deleting Lightoom CC catalogue

    Jim, One last question - do you use the option to store the LRCC images locally or just keep the images imported into Classic as your local copy?

    Migrating Classic catalogue for the second time after deleting Lightoom CC catalogue

    Hi Jim, Thanks for that, it looks ideal for my workflow. I'd orinally planned only to use Classic and LRCC in parallel for a short while until I was sure that I could do all I needed in LRCC. It might be a while before this is possible so syncing them like this is obviously the way forward...

    Migrating Classic catalogue for the second time after deleting Lightoom CC catalogue

    Thanks Jim, Importing the images into LRCC rather than Classic sounds a much better option. After I've imported existing images into LRCC is it best to create a new Classic catalogue before turning on syncing? How does the metadata added in Classic for existing images get transferred to LRCC...

    Migrating Classic catalogue for the second time after deleting Lightoom CC catalogue

    While trying to run Classic and LR CC desktop in parallel, I managed to get things out of step. I decided to delete the Lightroom CC catalogue and all cloud images to get things tidied up in Classic. When I try to migrate the tidied catalogue to CC though, I get the error saying the catalogue...

    Show camera EXIF data in LR CC Desktop?

    Thanks, I've come across a few things in the last couple of days that might keep me with Classic for a bit longer.

    Show camera EXIF data in LR CC Desktop?

    Thanks Jim, I think the Metaviewer Viewer only works in Classic though. Classic does show some of the metadata from the camera so I'll try the plug-in.

    Show camera EXIF data in LR CC Desktop?

    Is there a way to show all of the camera EXIF data in LR CC Desktop? The data is obviously retained as I can see it in Bridge if I save the original locally.

    CC or Classic?

    Thanks for the links, Ken, I'd read Victoria's article but not the one in Photography Life, thanks as well for the comments, John. I planned to go with LR CC until my subscription year ends in April - a) to give time to see how much Adobe adds to LR CC and b) to see if I can live the...

    CC or Classic?

    Hi Ken, What do you find missing in LR CC on the post processing side? As far as I can tell most (all?) of the Develop module settings are in LR CC, but it's certainly very lacking in the Library and other modules. For a number of reasons I've made the transition to LR CC, but I do a lot...

    Merry Christmas

    A Merry Christmas to everybody and very best wishes for 2019, who knows what excitements Adobe have in store? Thanks as well to Victoria and the other gurus for all their help and advice. Chris

    music filing system

    I've used JRiver Media Centre cataloguing and playback for a number of years and have always been happy - it can play just about any audio or video file and has very powerful tagging and editing features.

    TIFF vs PSD

    Thanks John, Save As sounds the safest option - the file sizes of PSD and TIFF are staggering compared to raw but disc space is cheap these days.

    TIFF vs PSD

    Where do you set the TIF compression options, John - is it in Photoshop or Lightroom?

    TIFF vs PSD

    Thanks John, in light of both your replies I'll stick to TIFF.

    Thanks Cletus, that's helpful
