    Library module Metadata icon doesn't disappear after metadata is saved

    I merged some photos (.jpg .dng) into a panorama (.dng), like I did that many times before. Since I used the "Auto Settings" during Photo Merge, the metadata conflict icon showed on merged picture top right corner in grid view. Now ... saving the metadata didn't make the icon disappear.

    Lightroom keeps saying the metadata from the image has been changed by either Lightroom or Narrative select when I cull and export and them import the images into Lightroom. I do not rename files in Narrative Select so I'm just wondering where I am going wrong as I'm getting the below error on a...

    "metadata for this photo has been changed"

    I recently relocated all of my photos to a Google Drive folder; it was a long and challenging process, but I managed to get everything in place, cross-checked the integrity of all files, and LR assures me that there are no missing photos and all DNG has been validated. However, now I'm seeing...

    How to change Lens description, camera description etc in Metadata

    I'm using a Leica M10. Current lenses have a 6-bit code that the camera converts to a Lens description. However this doesn't work for old lenses and non-Leica ones. I also have scanned film images where the "camera" is the scanner, and date is scanned date. It's not clear to me just how to...

    Plugin to do math/arithmatic on metadata fields

    Hi, I found myself with a stange problem. In need to decrease the numeric portion of file name in a large number of images by a value of 1. In other words IMG1234.jpg needs to become IMG1233.jpg. As the LR plugin API does not suppoort file name manipulation in plugin's it seems that one can...

    Library module Location metada data filters still show/use last non blank value entered after being deleted

    I don't know if anybody has experienced this. It happened recently (I am not using v10.1 upgraded 9 days ago - but it may predate this upgrade). If you delete an entry for all photos in your catalogue which have a specific value in a field - for instance if I entered by mistake "New York" in...

    Metadata panel contents do not update after synchronizing metadata

    If two selected photos have different entries in a particular field, LrC displays <mixed> in that field. In version 9.4 (and earlier), after synchronizing metadata, LrC would update the display of the field with previously different data and display the field showing the now identical data. In...

    Library module Timezone correction via Capture Time to Exif plug-in

    I've done some searching to little avail. I'd like to add two hours (all date fields) to a batch of images. (I'm aware of the LR capture time edit option, but prefer this result if possible.) I have John Beardsworth's (@johnbeardy) plug-in, but feel quite overwhelmed and lost when trying to...

    Metadata keeps changing, and I didn't do it :(

    Dear anyone who can possibly help ;) Here is a question that I posed to Jeffrey Friedl (who seems like a really cool guy, btw) "As far as I know, there is no Lightroom plugin to tell me specifically which metadata changes have been made to a photo. For example, Lightroom tells me that the...

    Trying to Save Metadata (xmp), hanging on video files

    I'm trying to Save Metadata on a large number of folders and files. (My entire catalog is 130,000 images, spread over 20+ years, by month/day folders. It's a lot of folders.) Problem is, if any one of these folders contains a video file (it seems), the process hangs. There appears to be no way...

    Library module Pasting GPS coordinates on multiple images

    On a Mac, how does one select multiple images and apply the same GPS coordinates to all of them at once? On a PC, if I select multiple images in grid view and paste GPS coordinates (or for that matter, any EXIF info) into the metadata panel, a dialog box offers to apply the change to all...

    Still no way to change a bunch of selected photos to one date?

    The title says it. I know LR was not able to do that in the past. Is it still the case. Is there a quick way? I have scanned thousands of old dias and of course they have the scanning date: to be changed to the real date of the shots
