    "Export containing keywords"

    In my Lightroom set up, when a new keyword is created, the box for "export containing keywords" is checked by default. I never paid this much attention, because I didn't use the export function very frequently, and when I did export, I didn't really care if the containing keywords were exported...

    Keywords Not Differentiating Properly between Capitalized Words and Non-capitalized Words

    Back in 2020 I asked about this but that thead is closed. I have never found a solution but did just report this as a bug to Adobe. Hoping some unfortunate souls have also been struggling with this issue and have figured out a new solution. Lightroom Classic Version Number: 11.5 and earlier OS...

    "Naming" a virtual copy

    Instagram (to use a specific example) has a preferred aspect ratio which I rarely use except for Instagram posts. So, I make a virtual copy, resize, and post. Fine. It would be cool if I could "name" the copy. I predict everyone here knew this except me but it turns out that you can add...

    Deleted top level keyword hierarchy, HELP

    I accidentally deleted a keyword which was the top level hierarchy of dozens of keywords, representing almost 200K images. My catalog was running slow and I was cleaning up the unwanted keywords I had that had populated from previous imports. LRC was running slow and not responding to the delete...

    Auto-complete not working for person keywords

    I recently upgraded computers and imported my catalog into a new catalog on the new machine. Unfortunately, once complete, I noticed that auto-complete on my person keywords no longer works. Given the amount of old-photo archiving that I do, I have thousands of keywords. Does anyone have a...

    Lightroom Classic 10.3, Windows 10. I keep my main catalogue on my home computer. When I travel, I create a new catalogue on my laptop (also Windows 10), import all my then-existing keywords from my main catalogue, then add my new travel photos and new keywords, often place names, into the new...

    Keywords Created on Mobile App Do Not Sync to Desktop...

    Just searched but couldn't find this issue. Have recently started using the mobile app on iOs. Everything syncs fine up to my desktop PC and Classic - except for keywords added. I'm assuming this is deliberately not enabled but cannot see why. It would save considerable time - I often get...

    Selecting photos in the map module and applying keyword

    I am struggling with the following: I geotag all my photos and I apply keywords as much as possible. I am running into a problem now when I want to use both. This is the situation: I live close to an old dike that has protected a large part of my country against the sea (The "Westfriese...

    I'm not sure what this image count is telling me...

    If I understand how the image count in the keyword panel works, what I see below means that there is an image that has the explicit keyword BODIES OF WATER: If I click on the arrow to the right of BODIES OF WATER, the library now looks like this: LR has now found 583 images. BUT, in the...

    Catalogs How do I Import Mac Face Tages as LRC people keywords

    I am preparing to import all my Mac photos into LRC. I have a lot of faces identified in Apples Face Tags. Is there an app to convert Mac face tag names to Keywords? Mac does not export face names. I need to make them keywords so i can export them to be imported into LRC

    Keywords- slow

    Since the last two updates to LR 10 I find the program is slowing down, having to close and open. Lately, adding keywords is almost impossible. It will start to auto complete and just hang. I have also noticed that when in PS, for no reason I can see, it will go back to LR! I had rolled back...

    I am a visual learner and would like to create a slideshow of hundreds of insects with lowest level keyword as a caption. All of my insects are keyworded with every taxonomical level. I don't want to change the export settings for everything above the lowest level. Is there a way to automate...

    Smart collection based on a single keyword

    I'm trying to create a smart collection based on the keyword 'portrait'. I want to find all images that have the keyword ...., portrait, (between the keyword separation commas). But no matter what I set it picks up the word portrait in other keywords, such as 'national portrait gallery'. Is...

    "Export containing keywords" doesn't work if synonym is used

    If I assign a keyword synonym to an image, containing keywords are not exported, even if "Export containing keywords" is checked. If I assign the keyword itself (non-synonym), containing keywords ARE exported if that box is checked. This isn't a huge deal, but it does make synonyms less useful.

    Online keyword syncing

    I have a large catalog in Lightroom Classic that I need to collaborate with some people to remotely keyword the images. LRCC of course doesn't sync keywords:bored:. I've tried several photo hosting services (smugmug, zenfolio), but I've run into some issues with them. All I want to do is publish...

    Syncing Keywords - what is current status?

    Trying to get my head around keywording between LR Classic and LR desktop. I have some, but not enough, tags applied in LR Classic, including People and Locations. Locations are in a hierarchy. Is this what happens: 1. LR Classic keywords sync to Cloud/LR and you can see them and delete them...

    Keyword transfer

    It seems hit or miss when I export photos as jpg from one catalog and import them with Add to another catalog that the keywords come along. I cannot figure out what is different when they are missing. This has happened to me for many years and many versions of Classic. Any help is appreciated. N+13

    Need advice on cleaning up my keyword list

    Probably know the answer but... After 10+ years of using Lightroom and now with a library of over 50K images, I suddenly get the brilliant idea to clean up my keywords. I've looked at doing it in the past, but it was such a daunting task, I always put it off until 'later.' So, a few days ago...

    Is it possible to merge keywords to a more recent catalog?

    For months I've been actively editing my Lr catalog to both 1) delete photos and 2) enhance my "keepers". I've successfully updated my catalog by eliminating about 7000 photos and have done a decent job of editing the ones that I want to keep. Unfortunately, I haven't kept track of keywords in...

    Library module Sample Pictures Keywords: You may not want them

    I'm still new at Lightroom Classic so I've only entered a few keywords and assigned them to a few hundred images. No hierarchy. I wanted to unstack all of my images and to be sure I then did a Select All. The Keywords Tags list on the right has hundreds of keywords I didn't enter and many I...

    Fixing my Keywords so they are all "Included on Export"

    I have a couple thousand keywords. Somehow a percentage of them are not marked to be included when I export image files. Do I have to individually select each keyword, right-click, select "Edit Keyword Tag," then choose "Include on Export?" And do this a couple thousand times. Or is there a...

    Library module Key words suggestion for location detail

    We have been doing major landscaping at our home. I wanted to have quick access to work in progress to various locations. I divided up our block into a grid. Added a grid reference like A, 2 or G, 6 to the images. Keyword search with Landscaping and Grid location finds all images.
