    A lot of the time I export a jpg to one folder then immediately export as a TIFF to a different folder. [or vice versa] Can this be done with one single action?

    Batch export with captions

    I'm creating a book with lots of photos in it. Within LR these pics have titles and/or captions filled in. I would like the exported pics to have the captions embedded, or else boxed just below. If embedded, white text. I don't need a huge selection of fonts or colours, just something not too...

    Is LR Mobile the best choice?

    Hi everyone I am not really a fan of using apps such as LR on my phone but LR mobile might be the best choice for what I need to do. I have been using LR since v1, so my desktop workflow is pretty finetuned for my needs. I have about 60k images in my main catalog, organised in folders (trip or...

    11.5 Export Dialogue behavior question

    Hello all, Using Windows LR Classic build (dang, it still won't paste from the About pane... it's 11.5 anyway) I am seeing two very strange things when I export. My project is a shoot for my daughter's ballet studio's portraits. I've tagged every face so everything is properly identified...

    Hi Have searched and but couldn't find it, so I thought I'd ask. If I'm about to produce a file to take to a printer to get some prints made, should I be a) Using the Export function under the file menu to create a full size TIFF or b) Using the Print to file option under the Print tab? I...

    Export with random sequence name

    I'm exporting a set of photos to be loaded onto a USB then shown on a projector. I don't want to have the computer connected. However, I'd like the images to be in a random order, not just the actual file name or date order. The projector will only display images on the USB stick by "Name...

    .webp import support?

    We have a boatload of external .webp files that we want to catalog in LRc. However, it STILL doesn't support import (or native export) of .webp files. WebP has been around since 2010. Adobe finally added support in Photoshop 23.2 (Feb 2022). Nothing (so far) in LR (and yes, folks submitted...

    Any plugin or approach to dump out collection/image data to excel or access?

    As part of my quest to move from Classic to a mobile workflow I have now decided to draw a line under my large classic catalog and move to a fully mobile workflow. Obviously, I would prefer to change my subscription to the LR plan but this means I will lose access to LR Classic. Not a big deal...

    Export in timestamp order

    I use 2 cameras and on import, my images are sorted by timestamp. However, is there a way of exporting in time-stamp order so that when I send the images via Wetransfer they are delivered in time-stamp order but still retaining the filename somehow? TIA

    Export to Messages.app?

    Does anyone have a good workflow suggestion to export a jpeg to the Messages.app on macOS? Even better would be able to access the Mac's Share feature and be able to send the jpeg to other apps which can be accessed via Share. I dont see any way to do this using an Export Preset. Thank you.

    Why is file size greatly reduced when exported?

    I recently started using the cloud based version of LRCC on my desktop computer with Windows 10. When I export photos after editing, the size of the file is crazy small. Even if I'm not cropping the image. For instance, a raw image that is 27 mb is 429 kb after export in jpeg format, with...

    My Olympus Raw and JPG files contain the default caption OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA on import into LrC (all three OM-D E-M1 versions). I usually select all, and edit the caption field to be empty.

    Find Latest Revision for Image

    I normally do most of my post processing in LrC. Sometimes I need to go into PS then I may send it to Topaz Sharpen. The point is that sometimes I'm left with 3 files all with a backward 'Original File' pointer; A.NEF<-A-EDIT.TIF (from PS)<-A-EDIT-EDIT.TIF (from Topaz). I would like to find...

    Keyword list exporting and importing in LRC

    I spent many hours cleaning up my keywords and building a new hierarchy. I accidentally applied a 4 star rating to all 105,000 photos. This wiped out years of work. Unfortunately I backed up my LRC before I realized what I had done. I could not undo the star ratings. I have a previous...

    Hi! I hope someone can help. This issue just started this week. When I export the images, they're perfect. I save them in another file when exporting. When I go back into export to look in the saved file, the images look desaturated like this. But the images from all the other sessions from last...
