    CR's are shown as crossed boxes in LR6 Book module

    Hi all, I am trying to create my first book in LR6 and in itself it's working fine, except I am running into a problem when trying to add text to a photo. One of the options here is to use photo metadata to automatically fill the photo text. So that's what I am trying: set the photo text to the...

    Thank you. I had to expand the Catalog heading before it showed. Missed that one

    Missing folders

    Found the "Synchronise folder" command. Running that revealed almost 300 photo's were not in the catalog. No idea why not. I know I must not move, copy , rename or delete files outside LR, so I assume that is not what happened. Anyway, it looks OK now

    Missing folders

    Hi, Today I happened to notice at least one folder missing in my LR Library. It is physically there, but it does not appear in the catalog view on the left hand side of the screen. If I choose the Import function I can see the folder in the folder structure shown on the right hand side and...

    Face recognition LR6 not very useful, usable, workable

    Thanks for that. In that case I'll just leave it and don't bother. It is inadequate anyway to identify people on photos, because it can only recognise faces straight from the front

    Face recognition LR6 not very useful, usable, workable

    Hi, face recognition in LR6 is far from ideal. After confirming thousands of faces for a particular person LR still comes up with almost every remaining face, suggesting it as "similar".... Then the performance is terrible. It takes ages before "similar" faces are shown and the "similar...

    No GPS in DNG files after import

    Operating System: MAC OS Sierra Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):6.12 Hi all, Recently I installed a camera app on my iPhone, allowing me to shoot Raw (DNG files). I have set Location Services on for the app and in the Camera Roll I can see photos taken with the app get a...

    (Conditionally) format thumbnails

    OK, so I found a way to color the grid cell. Now I'm only looking for a way to do this conditionally (keyword/smart collection based)

    (Conditionally) format thumbnails

    In Aperture I had the option to conditionally format the color of the preview thumbnails. When importing to LR, the thumbnails kept their colors, so LR is at least able to set the color of the thumbnails. Except, I cannot find how to set the color. There is a "color label", but that s just the...

    Keyword Smart Collections

    Unfortunately this does NOT work. LR apparently applies the AND to a concatenation of all keywords in a photo and not to a single keyword. If I filter using the keyword list in the library filter and compare the number of selected photos by the number of photos in the smart collection (set up as...

    Can the sliders in the Development module be controlled ?

    Thanks Jim, that works a lot nicer

    Can the sliders in the Development module be controlled ?

    Whenever I try to make minor adjustments to an image using the sliders in the development module, just clicking the arrow without moving the mouse already changes the slider value considerably. I must carefully watch the current value before even touching the slider so I can at least go back to...

    Please help - Exporting with capture date/time metadata

    Technically speaking this is correct, however you seem to forget you will then have the unedited, original image.

    Please help - Exporting with capture date/time metadata

    That is what you think. Since there is no direct interface from OSX applications to LR (as was/is the case with Aperture or Photos) use of photos stored in LR by other applications (like a video editor) requires images to be exported. It is then a pita if the capture dates are lost, because any...

    Lightroom not setting lens profile automatically

    Hi all, An issue I don't remember having earlier with LR6 (but, admitted, I have only using LR a short time): when I in Develop mode, in the lens correction section, check the "Enable profile corrections" check box, LR does not automatically find the camera brand (Nikon) nor does it recognize...

    Change sorting order video's and photo's in LR

    It appears LR will import videos not with the capture date but the import date; that's why they appear on top. Why???? Beats me. So now I'll have to change the dates for all video's. Luckily not that many...

    Change sorting order video's and photo's in LR

    Hi all, I am new to LR (coming from Aperture) and I am trying to understand the logic behind sequencing the photo's and video's in LR. What I see is that LR is showing any video's first in date sequence, flooded by all photo's in date sequence. In Aperture everything could be sorted in date...

    Keyword filter smart collection seems not to work

    Thanks for this. When I change the first rule from "contains" to "contains all", it works as I would expect

    Keyword filter smart collection seems not to work

    Hi all, I am trying to create a smart collection that will show me all photo's containing a particular keyword and none of a number of other keywords. So the rules for this collection are Show all of the following rules Keyword contains X Keyword does not contain Y Keyword does not contain Z...

    Migrate Aperture project info to Lightroom ?

    Don't you think that's a pretty patronizing answer ? It's a perfectly legitimate question, whatever "fashion" is used.

    Migrate Aperture project info to Lightroom ?

    Mmmm, looking at this I don't think it will be suitable for my purpose. There are a couple of problems related to non exporting keywords. First of all, you don't see them in the keywording window (which is a problem in itself, because you cannot tell if such a keyword is applied to a photo or...

    Migrate Aperture project info to Lightroom ?

    That is certainly an option worth considering. I will give it a try and see what will suit the job best. The comments field of an OSX folder is limited in size (probably 256 char's or so), which will normally suffice, but not in all cases. I don't know if such a limitation exists for keyword...

    Migrate Aperture project info to Lightroom ?

    Thanks for answering. Keywords are used for a totally different purpose than a description of a project/folder. Keywords are great for identifying individual photo's in different ways. An Aperture project or LR folder, though, normally contain a coherent set of pictures taken at a certain...
