folder heirarchy

  1. Mr_RossDuncan

    What's going on with my folders?

    For years now I've been meaning to try and figure out what exactly I do wrong every time I import into Lightroom Classic. I know it's going to be something so simple that I should have twigged to it before, but, as yet, I've not worked it out. On import, under the destination tab, I select the...

    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...

    Can LR Classic automatically re-distribute already-imported images to date-based folders?

    I've used LR since V2, and have 180,000 images in my catalog. All of these are sorted into folder structure created by LR (ie MasterPhotos/2021/2021-01-01) *except* for about 1000 images which were imported from 12/28/2018 to 4/18/2019 using LR Mobile sync. I didn't realize that Sync wouldn't...

    Import Moving from Aperture to LR Classic - file structure

    I’m looking to move from Aperture to Lightroom. My preferred file structure is folders for years with sub folders for months (and no further subfolders as I don’t want it split to days). Can I get LR to import like this or will it have to show daily folders? And what workflow would you...

    Can't create parent folder

    I am about to migrate over to a new iMac, and want to clean up my folder structure before I do. I went to look more closely at my folder structure (kind of a disaster even though I thought I had a method to my madness), and can't seem to figure out how to create a parent folder, and then create...

    Question marks on files that were not moved...

    Operating System:Mac Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):LR Classic CC 7.01 I store my master photo files on an external SSD. Being a good little LR acolyte, INSIDE LR I made a minor change to the name (and only the name) of a folder where I store some masters. All I did was...

    "Missing" photos detected when synchronizing folder

    Hello, I've found a few threads on an issue similar to this scattered around Adobe's official LR forum, but most were old and none seemed to really go anywhere solution-wise—nor did they have as straightforward a scenario as this. I posted a version of this there, but it's all crickets so far...

    Hi, I've got my photos into a bit of a mess and unorganised and having read guidance from experts such as yourself Victoria; I want to start over fresh. I haven't done much editing of any of the photos already in the library. What is the best away to reorganize and rename the folders without...

    Moving Lightroom to a new laptop.

    I am new to this group/forum so please excuse any unintended goofs! I subscribe to CC's Photography module. I currently have about 20K images on an old PC. My folder hierarchy is good but has several layers of child folders within many parent folders that are themselves within quite a few top...
