• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Just a quick head's up - we'll be moving to a new server on Wednesday 20th November around 2:30PM GMT. There should be very little downtime, but it may take your DNS servers up to 72 hours to update (although you can clear them manually).

    Can you use Classic & CC side by side..

    Well I'm in the unfortunate senario after building a new library first in CC (Cloudy). Having sync'd back to Classic (An Abyss of loose collections). I need to rebuild the folder/Collection Set structure in Classic to mimic that in CC (Cloudy). However its just occurred to me that seeing as I...

    Impossible to upload directly into Classic?

    Probably missing something really obvious, but my understanding is the only way to get photos out of LR on iPhone into LR Classic on MacBook is via the cloud. That's fine with good connections, but when travelling that's not always the case. Instead of the endless tussle of trying to get a...

    Sync Lightroom Classic and CC Sync Problems - Duplicate Files & Misorganisation

    Hi Guys I think I've truly stuffed up on this one! This is a Lightroom Classic post, although I'll be mentioning Lightroom CC a lot at the start. Background I am a long-time Lightroom Classic user. I've got a "Master Catalogue" of over 50,000 photos. These photos are sorted into a folder...

    Incredible confusion with Lightroom's new names and web services

    I wanted to get sync'd with the "Lightroom" app on my phone and found a YouTube video showing how to do it: Great video but Adobe's new release of Lightroom Classic really made things confusing. You'd need to watch that video to see how confusing Adobe could make things in the space of a few...

    Classic 8.4 not syncing completely sticking at 31, a bug?

    Hi all, I've noticed quite a few threads about the syncing with the cloud being broken and not completely uploading since upgrading. I've been on the Adobe forum and haven't had a lot of help with the usual methods being advise on, which don't work by the way! I am stuck on 31 files with it...

    Trying to Save Metadata (xmp), hanging on video files

    I'm trying to Save Metadata on a large number of folders and files. (My entire catalog is 130,000 images, spread over 20+ years, by month/day folders. It's a lot of folders.) Problem is, if any one of these folders contains a video file (it seems), the process hangs. There appears to be no way...

    New Classic Install Downloads From CC Don't Sync Completely

    Hi; I have 59,871 images in the Adobe Cloud that were all uploaded into Lightroom CC (just Lightroom now). I just did a clean install of Lightroom Classic and turned on syncing to bring down the images into my local LR. All worked great, except my "All Photographs" says 59871 and "All Synced...

    Auto upload from iOS Photos to Adobe Cloud has stopped working :(

    I had this working. I take a picture on my iPhone and open Lightroom CC which seems to initiate the transfer from Photos to my Lightroom Cloud. Then I see the pictures on my Mac in Lightroom Classic CC. Now although everything is in sync, new photos are not coming into the iOS Lightroom CC app...

    Hi, i have recently got an iPhone that supports live photos and am trying to find the easiest way to get them onto my desktop machine running lightroom classic.

    Force Rating to Image File

    I want to start backing up my pictures to a cloud account I have but I only want to save those images that I rated. I know that the rating is stored in the XMP and will be saved if I export the picture but I was wondering if there is any method to write the assigned LR rating to the rating on...

    Best way to store master photo files and LR catalog in the cloud...Without using the Adobe system.

    I know this topic gets old, but I can't seem to find a single good answer. Is there any reason why my master photo files and my LR catalog can't be stored on a non-Adobe cloud service, like iCloud, OneDrive, Dropbox or something similar? Personally I prefer Sync.com. I'm getting tired of...

    Sync Stop syncing LRCC albums / collections but leave collections in place on both?

    Not sure if I've gone about this the right way BUT my plan is (was) to use: 1) LRCC for essentially mobile based photography, syncing across laptop, phone and iPad 2) LRCC Classic for DSLR photography, storing my old archive AND store a back-up of the mobile images from LRCC 3) Use PS CC to...

    Sync Sync CC to Classic cause file coruption "An unexpected end-of-file occurred." (Windows 10)

    It seems my post was caught in the breakdown, so I'll try again. When I sync from CC on a laptop back to my desk with LR Classic, I sometimes get corrupt files on the desktop. Maybe one in every 100. It has been going on for a while. The file exist in the cloud and I can download it from the...

    First LrCC Android Impressions: the Holy Grail is Nigh!

    After being a loyal iOS only user for 11 years, I've finally decided to give Android a try with Note 9 -- most of all, for the S Pen, and the 512GB internal memory, and the microSD card for storing my Lr Mobile-uploaded albums, 330K+, locally. I also wanted to try importing in the field and...

    Moving a Catalog back and forth, what about syncing of the 1:1 and/or Smart Previews?

    I've been generating 1:1 Previews always, per Peter Krogh (and embedded full-size previews into DNGs as I convert to it). Now I have a dedicated SSD RAID 5 array for the catalog connected to the desktop iMac Pro, which uses about 2.5TB -- 6GB for the catalog itself, 2.2TB for Previews and 0.3TB...
