    Catalog question

    I want to echo what Cletus said so well. When I first ran into seeing all those ! symbols indicating a metadata conflict I panicked, wondering how in the world that happened. And indeed, I do think it has to do with the backup routine I run. As Cletus suggested, I just ignore the apparent...

    SmugMug plugin appears to truncate Titles over 64 characters in length

    I wrote to SmugMug support earlier in the day (after learning that Ferguson wasn't seeing the same thing, and I received this reply: ...we recently (earlier this evening) pushed out a fix for a separate issue with creating galleries in the Lightroom Publisher - so I wonder if this fixed the odd...

    SmugMug plugin appears to truncate Titles over 64 characters in length

    OK, so I created a new catalog and used the same test pictures as before, and this time the Title was uploaded correctly at full length. So, I then went back to my old catalog and changed the Title in one of the test pictures by deleting one character (making it 74 instead of 75 characters...

    SmugMug plugin appears to truncate Titles over 64 characters in length

    No, I don't think so. That's the first thing that occurred to me, so I went into the Editor in SmugMug and clicked on "Title, Caption, and Keywords" (where one can edit directly the Title, Caption, and Keywords, logically enough) so I could see what SmugMug actually has for the Title on its...

    SmugMug plugin appears to truncate Titles over 64 characters in length

    This is so odd. I'm not just looking on SmugMug at the Title in the Lightbox or in the gallery thumbs...I'm also going into the SmugMug editor and selecting "Title, Caption, and Keywords" so I can see what SmugMug actually has for the Title on its system, and the Title as shown in LR is...

    SmugMug plugin appears to truncate Titles over 64 characters in length

    I've just discovered that Titles over 64 characters in length are being truncated when the images are uploaded to SmugMug via the LR plugin written/provided by SmugMug. LR, of course, allows longer Titles, and if I enter (or edit) a Title using the SmugMug web interface, the Title can also be...

    From the what's new in Classic 9.2 blog

    Am I right to presume that the noise reduction being applied to most images is luminance NR, not color? And, is this primarily to compensate for the accentuation of noise that's caused by the use of Clarity and Texture, or is it independent of that, so if Clarity and/or Texture are used to any...

    How to sync with LR Mobile (and maybe Lightroom CC) without getting many duplicates?

    My only problem with using PhotoSync is that when I upgraded to a new iPhone, PhotoSync considered all of the photos on the new iPhone to be "new" photos (with respect to which photos had been transferred). I can understand why this might be the case, but it was a royal pain to transfer all the...

    Searching for my name in the filter bar generates too many hits

    After returning from a vacation visiting my daughter and her family, since she wanted to see the pix quickly, I processed them, including assigning a Title, but I left the keyword assignments for later. Since the Titles would contain the name of the person in the image, I thought the easiest...

    Searching for my name in the filter bar generates too many hits

    Well, my experience with LR is that the intended behavior of "last used setting" is inconsistent. For example, the metadata dropdown is also supposed to open to the last used setting, but I'd say in at least 20% of the times I open LR, it is reset itself to Default. Same thing happens at time...

    Searching for my name in the filter bar generates too many hits

    Now I wonder if there is way to change the LR prefs so that the Filter drop down menu defaults to "Searchable Metadata" rather than "Any Searchable Field"?

    Searching for my name in the filter bar generates too many hits

    John, you are brilliant! My username on my iMac is my first and last name concatenated. My images are stored at ~/Dropbox/Lightroom Managed Photos/etc. Mystery solved! I have to say, I'm not sure I understand the point of making the file pathname part of "All Searchable Fields." Is there a...

    Searching for my name in the filter bar generates too many hits

    Good idea. The only one that returned all my images was "Any Searchable Field." "Keywords," "Title," "Caption," "Searchable IPTC," and "Searchable Metadata" returned just the images that SHOULD have been returned (i.e., that appropriately are connected with either my first or last name)...

    Searching for my name in the filter bar generates too many hits

    I did not enter a copyright message in my camera (good thought, though!), and I don't populate IPTC fields except Location, City, State/Province, and Country. I looked at image metadata in LR using "All possible items" and my name does not appear anywhere. Many of the images in my catalog are...

    Searching for my name in the filter bar generates too many hits

    Using the Filter bar, I was searching for my name in a folder with 276 images, and was quite surprised to find that LR claimed a hit on all 276 images. I used "Any Searchable Field" "Contains" "my first name". I also tried my last name, and Contains All, and in each case LR found a hit in all...

    Recover plugins location stored (somewhere?) in Lightroom?

    Thanks. You've saved me a lot of time trying to figure out where I went wrong in swapping out the paths.

    Move Plugins location without reinstalling the plugins?

    Right you are (but you already knew that!). Thanks.

    Move Plugins location without reinstalling the plugins?

    That’s a clever approach. I’ve shied away from symbolic links because I’m afraid that sometime in the future I won’t remember that I’ve done that and then will have a devil of a time troubleshooting, because symbolic links are invisible. So, while I don’t mind mucking around with my system, I...

    Recover plugins location stored (somewhere?) in Lightroom?

    I guess I got mislead by my research about the error (which overwhelmingly turned up hits about changing the default screenshot location), all of which talked about syntax errors on the command line, not syntax errors in the file. I’ll take a closer look at the syntax of what changed. And I...

    Recover plugins location stored (somewhere?) in Lightroom?

    Well, the initial reason is what John quoted below. I have lots of plugins with serial numbers, and reentering those serial numbers is a PITA. And, some of those plugins are configured, although as long as the configuration isn’t stored in the LR prefs file, I suppose those configurations will...

    Recover plugins location stored (somewhere?) in Lightroom?

    When I ran the second Terminal command (defaults write com.adobe.LightroomClassicCC7 prefs.txt) I got this response from Terminal: Roberts-iMac:~ robertcamner$ defaults write com.adobe.LightroomClassicCC7 prefs.txt 2020-01-21 20:57:14.808 defaults[15638:148203] Rep argument is not a...

    Recover plugins location stored (somewhere?) in Lightroom?

    OK, so I took a look at the output of the Terminal command. There were only 3 lines that had any reference to the path where plugins are. The first two were: "AgPluginManager_addPluginDir" = "/Volumes/Data/Lightroom/Plugins/Ellis"; "AgPluginManager_selectedPluginPath" =...

    Move Plugins location without reinstalling the plugins?

    That's good to know. Presumably a restart would force MacOS to write out the cached version to the startup drive, allowing one to edit after a restart (and before opening up LR, of course)?

    Move Plugins location without reinstalling the plugins?

    Thanks, John… This is a great tip, and I will give it a try. But, if I can do this video in Terminal, shouldn't there be a preferences file buried in ~/Library somewhere that I can edit with Texted it or BBEdit?
