    Need a replacement for obsolete Image Ingester app

    Thank you. As far as I can tell, Photo Mechanic doesn't use DNG Converter to make and save a DNG backup (like Image Ingester does) file that is separate from the "second copy" function of PM, which makes a RAW file backup. PM only uses DNG Converter to render RAW files. Is all that right?

    Need a replacement for obsolete Image Ingester app

    Would it work to run Image Ingester Pro under Mohave using Parallels, then switch to Catalina on the Mac? I know this is a old thread but, with Catalina, the crisis is hard upon us. Thanks.

    Import Import button and file thumbnails grayed out in import dialog

    I am trying to import about 200 photos from the last couple months which do not appear in the LR catalog. When I try to import them, the thumbnails are grayed out and so is the import checkbox. When I click "new images" at the top of the thumbnail window, all the thumbnails disappear. I took...

    Can't import "movie" files to iMac from iPhone 7

    Thanks, I set the phone as you suggest, some while ago. It has set back to HEIF apparently, probably when a new version of iOS loaded. Now I need to find a way to convert existing HEIFs to JPEG or DNG, from my computer.

    Can't import "movie" files to iMac from iPhone 7

    Operating System: Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):MacOS 10.3.3, iOS 11.2.6 The "movie" files from iPhone go into LR as the codec is unavailable and can't generate preview. The files do not open,either, in iMac although they are fine on the phone. Do I need to do something on...

    LR CC won't import Quick Time files for Live Photos

    Operating System: MacOS 10.13.1 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): 7.0.1 My iPhone 7 takes a quick second or two of video with each "Live Photo" but LR CC will not import the video file, saying the required codec is not there. It does import the photo jpg/dng. The video is in...

    Need a replacement for obsolete Image Ingester app

    Yes, his web site says that he withdrew it from the market awhile ago, and will not be able to support it after the end of this year. ImageIngester | Marc Rochkind's Blog

    Need a replacement for obsolete Image Ingester app

    I have been using a very handy app called Image Ingester for years. It copies my photos from SD cards, changes file names, puts backup copies on two drives, and converts a copy to DNG with Adobe's app. Image Ingester is gone with MacOS High Sierra. I really need something that will do these...

    Trouble changing back from CC to owned version of LR

    Thanks, I already own a copy, I just want to use my owned copy not the CC one than downloaded when I updated the laptop to LR5. I'll try to find my LR 5 password and try it -- trouble is, I'm on the road and don't have it with me. Tried on my Adobe page, not there.

    Trouble changing back from CC to owned version of LR

    I was on the road and needed to update my laptop's LR4 ago LR5. Adobe offered me only the Creative Cloud version. I spent a lot of time looking for the stand alone version upgrade and could not find it on their site. I needed to get some work done, so used the CC they offered on a trial basis...

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    Thank you. Just to double check, am I correct that write metadata to xmp does not write Lightroom's edits?

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    Thank you. If I find that a folder has a more or fewer files, should I use sync folder at that point?

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    Thank you so much for your help. I am happy you are willing to pursue this further, and perhaps we shall. Before deciding to ask for even more of your time and expertise, I wonder what you think of foregoing this complete reconstruction process, for perhaps a simpler method suggested in my...

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    Hi and thanks for your patience. I hope the following answers your questions. I do appreciate the explanation of Locate, I think I've got it now! The first "OWC Mercury..." drive was renamed "AL 2". The 2012 photos do indeed exist on both AL 2 and AL 3. However, I renamed the "2012" folder to "J...

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    Indeed it exists on both AL 2 and AL 3. But LR does not show AL 3 at all. I realize that I clicked to tell LR where the missing files are, but I didn't know LR would move the files rather than just link them up with the info in its catalog. Thanks again so much for your help!

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    Thank you again for taking the time to look into this puzzle. I didn't moved files intentionally to AL 2. When I clicked Locate for the 20120101 files, LR put them in AL 2. LR does NOT show AL 3 as a connected drive, no matter what I do. Here are the screen shots, as I think you wanted them...

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    Here are four screenshots illustrating part of the problem (see next message for final shot)(first one should be last). The three folders showing "0" images were the ones I clicked on inside LR to try to "Locate" the missing files. When I did that, LR moved the photos to another drive, but did...

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    Thanks. By "it", I meant that the listing of the drive inside LR shows no contents. As a result, I can't point LR to the missing files. I'm working on the screenshots.

    Can't find files listed on drive in LR5 to reattach catalog metadata to moved files

    I am trying to recover from having moved a whole year worth of files outside of LR 5 some while ago. The catalog shows these on a dimmed-out drive, and all files have a "!" mark. When I connect the drive, which I had renamed, it shows no contents and I can't find any folders on it from inside LR...
