    Scanned File Extension is .JPG but File Type is TIF - Smart Collection Consideration

    An interesting (at least for me) FWIW. I was setting up a Smart Collection and discovered a number of scanned photos with a .JPG extension but that LR recognized a TIF. I'm trying to remember if I created these scans of composite prints or if a relative sent them to me. I think it's the...

    After Updating LR lost almost everything. Smart collections and folders gone

    Hey Ya'll. I've been trying to figure for weeks now. Even hired someone to try and help me and still no luck. I'll try and be as specific as possible. I work off a multiple hard drive and keep my lightroom on hard drive too. When lightroom updated It, it had me update the catalog. Once I did...

    Exiting Sub-Rules in Smart Collections

    Once you've created a sub-rule in a Smart Collection by holding Option/Alt and clicking on the + symbol, how do you get back to the regular-level rules to add another one? I couldn't find a way to do that. Or do you just need to make sure to create any sub-rules last, so that they are the last...

    Library module Smart Collection Rules

    In creating Smart Collections that include rules for keywords, I have always used "Contains" or "Doesn't Contain". I notice that there are other options including: "Contains All" and "Contains Words". Where can I find the definition of "Contains" vs. "Contains All" vs "Contains Words"...

    Missing Folders Question

    I have seen in different forums threads where others have had folders go missing from the Library yet the folders do still exist when you export - so no images are missing. I notice that not all my folders have gone missing but suspect it is only the ones where I have a second set of the same...

    Using Smart Collections with FotoMagico Pro

    I'm using Lr CC 2015.12 and just purchased FotoMagico 5.4.3 Pro. In FM, I can see the Lr library, no problem. I can also see all my "standard" Lr collections, and the images they contain. However, I cannot see any "smart" Lr collections, or the images they contain! I see the collection sets...

    Easy way to create hundreds of Smart Folders?

    I'm porting several large and one huge database from Aperture to Lightroom (and I'm happy to make the switch — they each have their strengths, and I'm enjoying almost everything about Lightroom). One task facing me is creating new Smart Collections. I need to make at least a couple hundred...

    Pausing Smart Collections

    So, I've read up on a few workflows (including Workflow smart collections – John Beardsworth) and come up with a system that seems to work pretty good so far. It seems all good on paper, rather... but, I'm a little confused by maybe the intended usage of some of the smart collections. A "No...

    Smart Collection "Not Yellow" Filter displays Yellow

    I've created a Smart Collection that I want to show all images that do not have a yellow tag, so I used, the IS NOT option, but the option doesn't filter out the images tagged yellow. I can't figure out what I need to do to hide the images with a yellow tag.

    Reducing clutter with stacks

    Hi, I'm new to this forum. I created a smart collection to gather photos with a specific keyword. I only want to work on virtual copies, so I created a regular collection for all the virtual copies. I tried to use the stack options (including auto-stack) in the SmartCollection, just to reduce...

    Smart Collection for people

    Can anyone tell me how to create a Smart Collection based on people's names? If I create one with Keywords > contains all > John Smith (for example), it includes any photo that has a John in it and a Smith in it. What I want is for it to include only photos of John Smith specifically. I hope...

    Less than X keywords

    Hi Is it possible to identify photos that have less than, say, three keywords? (Using a Smart Collection or otherwise.) I have the preset Smart Collection which identifies photos without any keywords, but I was hoping to go a bit further.

    Lightroom CC does not see pick flag

    I have several smart collections of photos taken in a particular location, which are built up using keywords. All works fine. Decided to set up a separate collection for "top 40" images. Set up separate smart collection with same key words - worked fine, all 550 photos appeared. Set an...

    Creating smart collections using keywords

    Hi all, Because Apple is discontinuing Aperture I am now looking into LR6, of which I downloaded the trial version. My first impression is not bad and I think I can live with it. Of course some things are handled differently than in Aperture, some are smarter and more complete, other are not...
