    RAW file converted to black and white on import without instruction

    Question about Lightroom 5. I've been using this software for some time. It is too old to read the raw files (RAF) from my new Fuji camera so I use the Adobe converter to convert them to DNG and then import them into LR5. Yesterday I shot an event in raw + jpeg. I used the windows 10 photos app...

    Colour Space Questions - Camera RAW and LR Printing

    And yes, the 'U' in colour is the proper way to spell it. ;-) A couple of questions around colour spaces and LR: Does the colour space you set in your camera affect the RAW or just the JPG rendering? I ask because supposedly RAW is undeveloped sensor data and colour space does not seem to...

    Editing in Raw vs TIFF vs DNG- impact of external editors

    I have reviewed what I find on forums and also google searches and am not clear on the answer. The question is do you lose anything by editing LR classic in TIFF vs Raw vs DNG. The impact is primarily with the use of external editors. For example if one wants to use Topaz AI Denoise they suggest...

    Smart Previews - to use or not to use?

    For some reason today, the topic has been Smart Previews on all of the videos that I've been watching, and I'm wondering if it's something I should be doing. For reference, I'm using a 2019 Macbook 13" with 250gb of flash memory. Because the storage on this laptop is at a premium, I've chosen...

    Develop module new LR Classic preset is a big failure for me

    Today I updated to 9.2 release. I use for any camera model, more than five and every ISO a own RAW default. Not only changing ISO depended noise reduction but also exposure, contrast, tone curve and more. Anyone have a 'simple' solution to get my defaults back? Current plan is to check every...

    How to share RAW directly from iOS Photos to LR mobile?

    Hello, I had a search and was unable to find any answers to my quandary so am hoping to consult the collective brains here. I’ve even spent a couple hours with Adobe help desk and they were unable to help! I’ve always sent photos FROM my iPhone’s native Photos app to Lightroom mobile: my...

    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.

    How to redo catalog migration? (Completed but 0 photos migrated)

    I migrated my CC Classic Catalog after freeing enough OS_Install drive space (big complaint about having to be specifically there) and stored photos separately etc None of the photos migrated/imported upon completion. Now it says the Catalog is already migrated, how do I reset it to do it...

    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...

    Reinstall not working properly?

    I recently had to reinstall the latest version of LR (am a a subscriber to the Creative Cloud service from Adobe) I shot off a couple of hundred pictures and am trying to get them to open in LR so I can manpulate them. (I'm an admitted newbie to the Adobe suite of photography apps.)...

    Hi all, I have a new problem with Smart Previews. The main issue is from our end, we've done a mistake when using them but the result we have now is really bad. I explain: we are a photo post-production company and we started recently to use Lightroom (we were previously only doing technical...

    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...
