    Hi. I'm new to LR and have already learned a lot through this site, but I'm still getting used to the folder and collection structure. I've imported photos from several trips into LR.

    Replacing an image in place with a new better scan, while retaining edits, orientation, crops, keywords, and collections?

    I have an unusual problem: I scanned a few thousand slides, and imported them into Lightroom Classic, fixed orientations, created some collections, did some edits, etc. I also retained the RAW scanner output - which isn't actually useful in Lightroom - it's scanner-specific, and LR doesn't...

    HI all. First time post - but very long time LR user. Has anybody else noticed that all of a sudden their Lightroom collections are now being forced into groupings of collection sets, smart collections then 'dumb' collections. I know many of us use John Beardsworth's Collections workflow...

    Search - Images in One Collection Only ("To Sort")

    Hey all.. I have a collection called "To Sort" - some sort of dumping ground I thought was a great idea at the time. So now it has a large number of images without an easy way to see if they have been applied to another collection... Is there a way to find images that are in this collection...

    Lightroom not reading XMP?

    I moved a number of files, including the XMP files. I am now missing collection, virtual copy, and other data that should have traveled with the XMP file. I just cannot get LR to properly read the XMP files. Any ideas? I've tried synchronizing the folder, but it doesn't help.

    Saving/finding location in collection

    I use collections (of various types) to organise my photos, and these can be up to 10000 images in size. The problem I have is that as I move through a collection sorting keywording and editing, I might take a break and quickly look at another collection. But when I come back to the first...
