    Hi, I've just imported holiday images from our iPhones to add to the images taken with my DSLR and have noticed that most jpgs have a 2s video associated with them. I am pretty sure these are part of the iPhone Live mode but just wanted to check that I was correct and to ask whether anyone...

    How to setup Lightroom to automatically remove Chromatic Aberration and apply the appropriate Lens Profile on import

    I kind of like backlit outdoor images and get minor CA on many of them. Lately the Remove Chromatic Aberration and Enable Lens Profiles in Lightroom, both seem to do an excellent job, so I trust them enough now to want those two steps applied during the import process by default. I read some...

    I'm puzzled. Whilst on holiday I shot a series of images with my Sony A6500 camera set to 16:9 ratio. When I loaded the RAW files to my laptop PC, all images display as 16:9. However, back home, I've loaded the same images from the camera memory cards to my desktop PC and only about 15%...

    OOPS, I dragged and dropped the lrdata files into my Lrc and created a collection to edit images for a customer.

    I am a new freelance editor and made a mistake! I edited the lrdata files and now they do not show in the actual catalog when opened. I am new to lightroom terminology and often get terms confused at this point. So my question: Is there any way to link, sync or rename my files so the edits...

    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...

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...

    I have started using CRAW on my Canon EOS R5 but was surprised to see file sizes around 45mb in Lightroom (i.e. similar to raw files). I took two identical photos, one craw and the other raw. On the memory card they are 18.1mb and 43mb respectively but in Lightroom after conversion to DNG they...
