    Caption / Description Metadata Fields

    I think that I've discovered what I consider a problem with these fields metadata fields within Lightroom / Photoshop. Let me preface this is the way I have my Lightroom options configured as below: I've thought in the past the the "Automatically write changes into XMP within Lightroom...

    Library module Keywords -> Synonyms

    In addition to photography, I've got a larger than average collection of family photographs used for genealogy research that are in various stages of having Keywords added to them. I'd like to clarify what I think is true about Keywords and Synonyms if possible. Please feel free to confirm...

    Library module Metadata Presets

    As I continue to add metadata presets, the list continues to grow and is becoming endless scrolling. Is there a way to organize this list so that it doesn't scroll so much? I'm thinking something like the keyword hierarchy that has neat little triangles that expand and collapse the list of...

    Sync Controlling Photos to Sync

    Is there a way to control photos that are synced with Lightroom Mobile on the iPhone to my computer? For example, I'd like to ONLY sync photos that I "take" with the Lightroom app, NOT any photos I take with the built in camera app, screenshots etc. Gets a lot of clutter for stuff I don't...

    Library module Metadata Unneeded Drop Down Entries

    When adding / updating IPTC metadata and the fields start to populate after you begin typing. If there are similar entries, such as one has a capital and the other does not, how do I get rid of the entry I don't want to auto populate any longer? See example below: United States of America...

    Library module Update DNG Previews & Metadata

    I understand that the command found when having multiple files selected and you right click Metadata -> Save Metadata to Files does as well as the Update DNG Previews & Metadata from pp. 346-347 of The Missing FAQ. Is there a situation or specific reason that you would choose the Update DNG...

    Library module Remove Face Detection Regions

    I'm finding that personally I don't like the face detection and would like to remove the regions from all images. However in doing this for a small subset of images as described on page 150 of the Missing FAQ, I have found that it also removed the "normal" keyword IF that keyword and the face...

    Develop module Updating Develop Presets

    In looking through some of my presets, I find that most are a normal looking font while others are darker and in italic, why? My guess is something in the preset isn't compatible with the current version of light room. This looks like it can be updated by right clicking and selecting "Update...

    I've not found a way yet to create a custom collection and / or filter that includes a specific keyword and then excludes a specific folder, is something like this possible?

    Develop module Color Smoothness slider

    In the older version of the Lightroom Missing FAQ it discusses the color smoothness slider as the default value working well for most images. It also indicates that moving the slider to the right increases smoothing at the cost of performance. Can someone possibly explain the "at the cost of...

    Odd Shadow Artifacts

    When developing an image I'm seeing some colored dots in the shadow areas of the image. I'd like to know what this might be and how I can eliminate it. When I adjust the shadow slider for the image they do disappear, so perhaps I'm trying to recover to much detail in the shadow area. What...
