    Due to backup trouble ...

    caused by updating to 2015.8, I was misled to suspect that my catalog was too large. So, I decided to split it into four parts via catalogexports and removals. Three such exports - each one approximately 10K photos - left me with a 'main' catalog containing 65K photos out of the initial 95K...

    wrong file order on card before import

    Hi all I recently got a second hand 1D x. One of the first thing I did was to format the cf card that came with the camera. I also use one of my old cards from my 1D IV.

    "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 folks, is there a way for Lightroom to automatically read an associated XMP sidecar file when importing RAW files? I know that you can select any number of files and use the menu option 'Metadata>Read metadata from file' after importing, but I would like to have the option of doing this...

    Trouble tracking down personal pictures in LR import. Sifting through icons and gfx

    Full disclosure: I am fairly advanced in many of the adobe CC programs, with Photoshop cc 2015 being by far my comfort zone. For whatever reason, I never spent too much time in lightroom until recently. My problem is this: 1) Trying to track down all my personal pictures. I have about 6...

    I am going thru the Lightroom ebook quickstart and am working on import. The pictures in the ebook do not exactly line up with what I have in the lightroom program, so I am wondering if I would check the box convert to DNG in the advanced section. I don't see that covered in the book Thanks Doug

    At import, how can I get LR6 to recognise only the images of the selected folder I desire imported, & not the potentially hundreds of images in subfolders of that folder, which I am currently having to go through & de-select everytime I import? This is very time consuming.

    Imported Images show as Not imported

    I go to import two new images, and LR indicates that many more have not been imported, but they are already in LR. Why is that happening?
