    Lightroom catalog cannot see images in external hard drive

    Evolution from LR4.1 to Classic on New Computer

    This will be old stuff for most of you, and I have re-read Victoria's old member messages about the "End of Perpetual Licenses" disaster. I'm currently running LR 4.4.1 on a Windows 7 machine that is soon to be retired. I have a new Windows 10 machine and would like to have a standalone...

    Move photos to empty folder?

    I have organised a batch of photos by tagging them in Lightroom Classic and I'd like to move them into an empty folder. The problem is that the folder is not showing up in the file tree, presumably because I haven't imported anything from that folder. Is there a way I can make empty folders...

    Lightroom Classic, with MAC Catalina, can't move folders.

    If I try to move folders it just blinks and doesn't move. I can move individual photos though. So in order to move a folder, I select all photos, then right-click on the master folder where I wanted to move the folder to. Create a new folder with selected photos. I used to just click on the...

    Impossible to upload directly into Classic?

    Probably missing something really obvious, but my understanding is the only way to get photos out of LR on iPhone into LR Classic on MacBook is via the cloud. That's fine with good connections, but when travelling that's not always the case. Instead of the endless tussle of trying to get a...

    Classic 8.4 not syncing completely sticking at 31, a bug?

    Hi all, I've noticed quite a few threads about the syncing with the cloud being broken and not completely uploading since upgrading. I've been on the Adobe forum and haven't had a lot of help with the usual methods being advise on, which don't work by the way! I am stuck on 31 files with it...

    Lightroom Sync Count discrepancy

    I've had a problem where the count of the images in albums in LR Web was showing 1 more image in total than I thought should be there. In addition there were a few "non collection" images. I have approx 5000 of my images in LR Classic synced to LR Web. Over time, I have managed to get some...

    Classic vs CC

    I've been using Lightroom (now Classic) for many years now. I have not yet used Lightroom CC and I am trying to figure out if moving to CC is something I should do, or if I should just stick with Classic for now. I would be happy to read posts or pages from Victoria's books if anyone can point...

    Has anyone tried Lr Classic on MacBook Air 2018?

    Looking into replacing my aging MacBook Pro Retina 2012 with either a fully-specced iPad Pro (which would require a switch to Lr CC mobile) or a 2018 MacBook Air (16Gb 512Gb SSD). Has anyone give the MacBook Air a spin in Lr Classic? Opinions? Is it a viable platform for Lr?

    LR 3 Mac Compatibility

    Does anyone know what is the latest version of Mac OSX (or macOS) that LR 3 (more specifically v3.6 for Mac) is compatible with? I know it works on OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite, but does anyone know if it would work on the later versions of OSX or macOS? Thank you.

    Subscription Pricing--and now what?

    After 10 years of LR, starting from the first beta, it's now time to switch. The subscription model and force to use their cloud is a clever move to make more money with the existing customer base. But this is not future proof for me, as I don't want to get locked in. (plus price is at least 3x...
