    DNG Previews Not Fully Rendering In Import Window

    This has been happening for quite a while now - 2 years maybe? I shoot RAW on my iPhone 7 and when importing and viewing the thumbnails in any import window, be it Lightroom or Image Capture, the DNG files are not rendering fully which makes it hard to know which files I might have previously...

    Suddenly my DNG files are double their size in LR 6

    Usually my DNG files take or took up around 25 - 30 Mb per shot. Now i discovered that since lately they are all around 50 Mb in size. I think I clicked on the import dialog somewhere wrongly (?) where I was asked to keep original Raw files inside the DNG or not. But for the life of me, I...

    Replicating keywords - master image to jpg derived from Export functionality

    I often have to produce a jpg from a raw file (CR2) and I want to know how I replicate the keywords that are already assigned to the raw file to the jpg file as the jpg is produced from the Export funtionality. I do this so that the jpg will appear in a Collection set together with the raw file.

    Library module DNG+JPEG

    Lightroom shows files names like "P1030088-2.DNG+JPEG" in the corner of a preview thumbnail but in the computer's file system that file is actually "P1030088-2.DNG". There are also cases where Lightroom reports a file of "P1040011.dng" and in the computer's files system it shows the same name...

    On the go workflow

    I wanted to give LRCC a try on a project I'm working on, and I'd love to hear some feedback from people who've used both CC and Classic CC. I typically work on a single device, a Surface Book 2, and I initially transfer my RAW files to an external drive (via LR Classic import) and build both 1:1...

    Should I DNG?

    My camera shoots RW2, and I'm wondering if I should convert to DNG or not. I haven't so far, assuming any conversion has some kind of loss to it, but stumbled upon an article recommending converting from proprietary camera raw to dng systematically. What are your thoughts on this, kind forum...

    Fujifilm RAW conversion

    Hi! I'm new to the forum and as you'll see, I'm very new to both my Fujifilm X-T20 and to shooting RAW. I just purchased Lightroom 6.14 perpetual (not Creative Cloud). Adobe assured me I didn't need another RAW converter. Now, in LR Develop module my pics are good but when exporting as JPG, they...

    ACR for LR6 (perpetual)?

    I've not found any discussions here concerning importing RW2 files into LR. Previously, I've used PS Elements 11 to open the RW2 file and save as DNG (7.1 and later). These can then be imported into LR. The actual "conversion" is probably simply adding a few bits to the original file and...

    sudden change in vibrance in previews of raws taken on canon 77d

    I've just upgraded from a Canon 450d to 77d and from Lr5 to Lr-CC. I shoot raw and import raw (.cr2) images which Lr converts to DNG. I'm used to my raw previews in Lr seeming duller than the corresponding jpegs (on the rare occasions I shoot in jpeg) *until* I edit the image (though I still...

    iPhone 7+ Portrait Mode and save RAW?

    Hi, I've trying to figure out if I can use the Portrait Mode (the bokeh effect) on the iPhone 7+ AND save a RAW file using LR Mobile. I know that I can use the telephoto lens in the LR Mobile app, but that is not the same as using the Portrait Mode. So far I think the answer is no, but I'd...

    Raw looks nothing like Jpeg on back of camera!

    Very sorry if this issue has been raised before but I can't find the thread in the forums (I am new!) I shoot in Raw (Nikon D750) and the Jpeg image it renders on the back of my camera looks exactly how I want it. But then I import the raw into lightroom and the pics suck! It takes me ages to...

    RAW vs TIFF

    I am a long-time user and fan of LR, currently on v6.5. I recently switched from Nikon to a Sony A7 and am happy with the camera except for one thing - the dull RAW files from the A7 (dull color, low tonal contrast) out of camera when loaded into LR. It's all there in the RAW, but takes more...

    I am using Lightroom 5.7.1 and would like to edit Nikon NEF files. When I try to import files, the NEF files do not show up in the directory to import. The files were created with a Nikon D810. Do I need an add-on or something and if so, where can I get it? Thanks, Dave
