  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

    Metadata Save to Files Problem

    In the catalog panel on the left I am told that 458 images have "Save Metadata to Files Problems." What does this mean? Checking the files via Bridge and comparing with LR it looks like all the metadata is on the disk as well as in LR. I don't know what to do about this message. Even so I...
