• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Just a quick head's up - we'll be moving to a new server on Wednesday 20th November around 2:30PM GMT. There should be very little downtime, but it may take your DNS servers up to 72 hours to update (although you can clear them manually).

    Locked files during batch processing

    Lightroom (latest version) every once in a while claims read only access during batch processing of HDR pictures . What I do is Photo > Photo Merge > HDR based on stacks (Stacking > Auto-Stack by Capture Time… > Time Between Stacks 0:00:01). This only happens some times and can be solved by...

    Flag + HDR + Stack

    I'm looking to see what I'm missing or how I could improve HDR processing. At the moment, I flag all the images I want to work on. For HDR images, I add the suffix -A,-B and -C to the filename of the 'A' image. I have a Nikon D5300 so only bracket 3 automatically. I then select the 3 images...

    Number of images for HDR

    When merging five (or more) images (say -2, -1 0,1, +2) I find more noise and pixilation than when merging the two extremes images (-2 and+2). Is anyone else getting this result? Is this a LR issue or a photographer issue?

    Olympus in-camera HDR

    I have an Olympus E-M1. It has in-camera HDR mode. If the camera is set to HDR and raw shooting mode, the camera take a number of images at varying EV adjustments then outputs two images, one is the composite HDR as a jpg and the other is a raw with 0EV adjustment, that is to say, the correct...

    Keeping HDR files with bracketed files

    I have been merging HDR files from a recent shoot all day. When Lightroom finishes the merge, the files have been next to or among the original bracketed files in my grid. But, now, later in the day, Lightroom is putting the files at the end of all files and I have to moved each one back into...

    beginner questions on HDR

    I'm using LR 6 perpetual on a Windows 10 system. I recently shot some beach scenics with bracketing metered exposure + / - .7 and 1.4 stops. Each sequence was shot at 5 fps, so I can expect some differences due to wave motion. To create an HDR image: Should I use just two images, or can I...

    HDR final image location

    I do a lot of HDR processing in Lightroom. I'll shoot 50 bracketed sets of three photos. Lightroom then presents me with an HDR result which it will sometimes put at the end of the filmstrip. At other times it will place the results within the bracketed photos. I can't figure what to do to get...

    Merge to HDR oddities

    I wonder if anyone else noticed the following 'Merge to HDR' oddities: 1. If you use 'Merge to HDR' (or 'Merge to Panorama'), Lightroom will generate XMP-files for all the source images, even if you have not checked that option in the Lightroom preferences. 2. If you use 'Auto Tone', Lightroom...
