    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    XMP is an open standard developed by Adobe, File management, metadata integration | Adobe Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP). So many applications use it. And yes, Adobe applications can read it. Remember that it's just a language, and if say there's an image adjustment that is proprietary to...

    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    After getting back to the Passport, I discovered that yes, it's the case of the sidecar extension names that caused the problem. Photo Mechanic had been set to uppercase, which of course didn't matter on my macOS drives. But apparently it does on the NTFS wifi volume. I changed the prefs to...

    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    Yes. I'm not quite sure what you're saying, since many many applications create .XMP sidecars (although not sure about the case sensitivity issue, if that's what you mean). Some were created by Graphic Converter, some by Photo Mechanic. All work fine if imported in other ways, and have for...

    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    I have a WD My Passport Pro drive. I was using it as a networked drive recently; basically it has a build in router and the drive mounts on my system (macOS) just like any shared network drive. I had added some keywords, etc to the raw images and therefore had the raws+sidecars on that drive...

    ISO dependent preset generator

    Zenon it doesn't sound like you need ISO specific presets. The point is that different adjustments would be auto-applied to different ISOs. If you use the same adjustments for all images at import this feature isn't going to help you. The text editing is basically that you have to start with...

    ISO dependent preset generator

    Cool idea for some. I think Brad Friedl also has a plugin that can do what Adobe's feature does and more too, the Bulk Develop plugin. I actually have found that I am more inclined to set a default NR or some other stuff by camera, rather than needing to set different defaults by ISO. As to...

    ISO dependent preset generator

    Lr Classic now allows one to set defaults for cameras, and defaults specific to certain ISOs. Set up raw defaults To set up such a default one must create an iso dependent preset, and as of right now there is no Lr tool to do so, one must download the sample file and use a text editor to create...

    Lr Classic won't save destination folder from import to import

    That's a good idea, but it doesn't solve my particular problem. The files go to where they're supposed to, but if I say choose a folder, then save as a preset, then use the preset at the next import but want to select a new folder, I still have to drill down through the hierarchy of folders. In...

    Lr Classic won't save destination folder from import to import

    That's the problem; docking doesn't "stick" between import sessions. So if I do have to dive into the destinations to change them, I have to drill all the way down from the root level of my boot drive, a big PITA.

    Lr Classic won't save destination folder from import to import

    Maybe I'm missing something simple, but I seem to recall that Lr Classic would always show the correct destination folder in the sidebar of the Import module, not the root, when using the "Organize by Date" option. There were occasions when I want to move that around, or just verify where it's...

    Synching a new catalog with imported, previously synched images

    Adobe's page does distinguish from the earliest iteration and then changed. Frankly, given what I explain below, best to just start over with smart previews. So, ugh. First, originals. Say shots you've taken with Lr Mobile's camera. Or auto imported from the cloudy version. The situation where...

    Synching a new catalog with imported, previously synched images

    Yes, I was wondering about unsynching as well. The images have unique keywords, so I can find them easily, and anything Lr would download wouldn't be a real duplicate, so maybe worth experimenting. And since my download speeds are far higher than upload, maybe easier to err in that direction...

    Synching a new catalog with imported, previously synched images

    I had an old Classic catalog that was synched with the cloud. About 700 images were synched. For reasons I won't bore you with, that catalog has been imported into a new catalog, along with those 700 images. I want to now synch New catalog, and stop synching Old catalog. Under the instructions...

    Need a replacement for obsolete Image Ingester app

    It uses DNG Converter to render previews for images, yes. It can also use it to convert files. But it's not part of the ingestion process. I've seen that suggested before, but I think the consensus is that it slows down ingestion and if one wanted to do that, Lr does a good job. The focus is on...

    Preparing to upgrade to MacOS 10.15

    I'd also suggest G64. Using the macOS "About This Mac" method was wildly inaccurate, as was the listing within it called "Legacy apps." There were many applications I had deleted long ago, as well as many that it missed. Go64 also has a nice feature where you can do a "Show in Finder" so you can...

    Need a replacement for obsolete Image Ingester app

    Boy, that's a lot of effort and expense for a dead program. I'm not sure how you're using Image Ingester, but there are other alternatives. We've mentioned Hazel, but it's not yet Catalina compatible. If I was going to spend money on it I'd just get Photo Mechanic instead of Parallels, since it...

    Adding time to one's Photography Plan subscription

    Yes, that's exactly what I've done in the past. But I wonder if it's changed? the problem is that software is usually a no-return item, and I wouldn't want to get stiffed.

    Catalogs Storing Photos and Catalog in Dropbox

    You could travel with smart previews instead of originals if space is an issue. And where your catalogued photos are depends on where you put them. If you imported them or moved them to your hard drive, that's where they are. If you didn't, they aren't there. You have control of that via Lr at...

    Adding time to one's Photography Plan subscription

    I was considering adding another year to my existing Photo Plan Lr/Ps/20GB subscription when I noticed Amazon had it on sale for $100/yr. My current subscription runs out in 2021. In order to be sure it could be done, I contacted Adobe support via a chat (that took almost an hour) only to have...

    Upgrading iMac query

    I use a 2014 retina iMac with Lr and have no issues. Sure, I'd want Lr to go faster, but everyone does. The retina screen is essential. Not only is it more beautiful than a 2009 screen, but because of the higher resolution editing is more effective: you can see more of your image onscreen at say...

    Keywording People

    And in general, if you see ">" in the keyword entry space it usually means that Lr has found different instances of the keyword, like when you have California>San Jose and Costa Rica>San Jose. That way you can tell which Jose you've got. If you just see "San Jose" it means there's no ambiguity...

    Keywording People

    I believe that | is read by Lr if it finds it in a string of keywords during an import. So if you enter "text|textx|textxx" in a flat keyword list in some other application and save it to an image file, then when Lr imports it will generate a hierarchy like thus: text>textx>textxx. And per usual...
