    batch file rename with character search

    I would like to do some renaming of multiple files along the lines of what you'd do in a small program script. e.g. if the character string "xy" is in the file name of the selected photos, I want to replace it with nothing ("") Thanks

    Tone Curves - Beyond the Basic Panel

    I am learning LR6 and have reached the point where I "automatically" adjust the high & low points on the tones in the photo with the Basic Panel.

    Pet Eye not working in LR6

    The Pet Eye tool in LR6 is working only very rarely for me (LR6). Like everyone else, I am trying to remove the reflection from the tapetum. I am not sure what the problem is. This is on a Golden Retriever, not a cat or some disfavored dog breed ;] Any tips ??

    LR 6 seems unaware of some files in a folder I use to import from (iMac - High Sierra). Yet, it will import other files in that folder, even if they are moved there after the 'hidden' files. Nothing wrong with the files either, as far as other programs are concerned. Seems crazy...
