    Develop module Does Generative Remove Note that it has been used in Photo Metadata?

    I just started playing around with the new AI powered Generative Remove in LRC 13.4. I found myself wondering if it notes somewhere in the metadata that the image has been altered. If it does not, I believe it should.

    Library module Metadata unknown for all video files

    The metadata status for all my video files in LrC is unknown. The files are from various iphones and a Canon Powershot G7. Is this the state of affairs or is there something which could fix it. It is more of an annoyance than really a problem. But when I check the metadata status from time to...

    Library module Lightroom Metadada bug?

    For years, I have been using Lightroom, among other things, to add data to my photos, such as title, description, and keywords. I have always been careful to have the option "Automatically write changes into XMP" on "catalog settings". But now, when I edit some photos and after adding some data...

    Edit capture time by 10.5 hours

    I need to adjust the capture time on a lot images by 10.5 hours. The Metadata-->Edit capture time only allows whole numbers (thanks, India, for the weird time zone!). Is there a way to do this inside of LR? I know I could download exif tool, but I'd like to do internal to LR if possilble. Thanks.

    Force sidecars for TIFF images?

    I updated the GPS coordinates of a group of images captured back in 2003 and now LR wants to update the original TIFF files and I'm a bit reluctant for a few reasons. Can I force LR to use side cars? And... why does it want to update the TIFF images anyway? I have the option to do so off.

    Export How to export photo with plugin custom metadata

    Hi all! I am developing a plugin for Lightroom Classic using LUA that allow user to enter custom metadata defined by the plugin. My question is how to programatically overwrite the standard metadata (e.g. Camera Make, Model, Shutter, Aperture, Lens, ISO, etc) on the exported Jpg file...

    Strangeness with updating GPS via Map Module

    There may be another setting that I am not finding. Here are the symptoms: I'm on macOS Sonoma I have my images on a remote disk. If I mount that disk on my laptop then when I update the GPS settings by going to the Map module, selecting a batch of images, and dragging the icon onto the map...

    Preserving edits and metadata outside of Lightroom

    Hi All, I know Lightroom enough to use many of the keywording, captioning and editing functions. What I have always wondered is if I want to ensure that all that work put into the keywording captioning and editing tweaks can be preserved beyond Lightroom. Is there a function such as export that...

    Edit time stamp not working

    This is my first post here, and I am hoping someone can help me understand what I am doing wrong when editing the time stamp. It seems pretty straightforward and it is something I used to do in LR5 all the time. I select Metadata>Edit Capture time, then select the Shift by set number of hours...

    Culling photos from Photo Mechanic to LRC

    I have a bit of an issue with LRC (12.5 release). I cull photos with Photo Mechanic, tagging color ratings, and then sync my photos in LRC. I'm getting a warning that I used to hit Overwrite settings and it would clear all selected. For some reason unknown, I have to do this one image at a time...

    "Camera" model in metadata -- can it be changed?

    If I select a still image and pick "Exif" in the drop down in the Metadata panel, sometimes (not always I think) "Make" and "Model" shows up which in this example is "DJI" and "DJI Pocket". The problem is that this wasn't a "Pocket" but a "Pocket 2" and I'd like to modify it in the LR database...

    SmugMug plugin metadata field for personal information

    I use the SmugMug plugin. Many of the metadata fields (Title, Caption, User Comment, Headline, many others) upload to SmugMug and are visible there. I would like to find some metadata field that I could use for personal notes (e.g. "used for birthday card to Mom 2021") that would NOT upload to...

    Establishing Source Filename Consistency in Lightroom without Losing Information

    Hi All I would like to store all my photos on disk by a simple unique serial number - as there are tens of thousands of them. For example ABX45667, ABX45668, ABX45669 etc However, I have a rag bag of existing filenames on my original photos - they are totally non-systematic but are actually...

    Change color of slide title in Slideshow

    Learning to use 'Title' field in image metadata to insert captions on images in a slideshow. White seems to be the default color. This shows up poorly on slides that are light where the caption appears (moving the caption would help, but that is a global action, so moves the caption on all...

    Importing previously edited photos

    When I import my images to LR, I convert them to DNG. I thought the metadata settings were saved to that DNG file. Recently I had a corrupted LR catalog, so I just started a new catalog and re-imported all my DNGs. However there were no editing details attached to any of these images and I had...

    Preserving edits

    Hi. Sorry for what’s probably a stupid question. I’ve never trusted a catalogue based photo software to keep my edits safe. I’ve had a few occasions in the past, especially when I used to use photo mechanic as part of my workflow, where I would go back to files in Lightroom and all my edits are...

    Hello all Please can someone explain the difference: In LR Classic, library module, there is an option to customise metadata default panel - see screenshot below. By default, capture date is checked - this is fine and I don't want to loose this. But I would like to know how 'capture date'...

    Unable to Write Metadata to files

    What would cause the inability to write keywords to a specific file? I see the following ! on some files that I recently added some keywords to. When I ask it to read the meta data from the file the keywords disappear, OK, get that. I then enter the keyword again and the ! reappears and when...

    Library module Add metadata by just selecting different images

    Hi there, is there setting to be able to add metadata (captions, keywords) by just selecting different images in the libary module? I know, this is possible via syncronisation, but it's one step more. And, for adding keywords the sync is not so useful, because it syncs all the keywords for the...

    When I select a number of photos in the "Has been changed" category and then use choose the "Read Metadata from File" option, at first the photos in question disappear from the "Has been changed" category, as you would expect, but then they immediately return. Any suggestions why this happens?

    Anyone using JB Listview and having issues lately?

    Hi all, So I learned of JB Listview from this forum last year and bought a license last May or so. I don't need to use it often but since LR never had a list view like APerture used to back in the day, having a way to see a list of images and even edit things like Title and the like makes for a...

    Metadata can't update from lowercase to uppercas

    I entered metadatas in lowercase where I'd like it to be Uppercase (example: Country: "France" instead of "FRANCE"). If I reenter it, LR classic do not take it into account. It proposes the original one "France" and even if I retype it with capital letters it does not change. Any idea ? Thanks !
