    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.

    Copying Collections List from Original to Photoshop-Edited Photo

    Let's say I have a photo in raw format and in the course of working with it in Lightroom I've added it to multiple collections. Now I decide to edit it in PhotoShop, which results in a derived tiff file. It's named <original name>-Edit.tif and is stacked with the original raw file. The derived...

    Function 'Edit a copy with Lightroom adjustments' not working correctly

    Hello everyone, since working on a new imac I have an issue with brush/pen tool colours while editing a copy of an image with Lightroom adjustments in Photoshop. A completely separate file created in photoshop is showing true colours (as per the colour code), while a photo opened through...

    Behavior of AUTO TONE Develop

    I normally put any noisy image through Topaz Denoise before making any adjustments in LR. However, I miss-stepped today so saw the AUTO TONE on the NEF before I reset to go to Topaz. When I came back and tried to AUTO TONE the TIFF file, the image was not as exposed as the AUTO TONE on the NEF...

    Lens profiles for scanned images

    Before I get flooded with responses about RAW files, etc. yes, I get it that the lens profiles are intended for RAW files straight from the camera. But... My lockdown project has been to scan all (yes, from 1960s to early 2000s) of my negs and slides. For many of the shots I know which lens was...

    Importing and previewing TIF files into LR Classic

    I am experiencing 2 issues with importing and displaying TIF files - maybe the issues are related? LR does not import medium / large size TIF files - when I try to import, LR ignores TIF files larger than approx 5Mb - there are no error messages, it just ignores them. For smaller TIF files...

    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...

    Change in visibility of tiffs in LR

    Since updating to the latest LR Classic and Photoshop 20.1 the visibility of my tif files in LR has changed. Formerly when I finished editing in Photoshop and "save as" a named tif in a subfolder called "processed" the image would still appear in my LR catalog as a tif file with the name I...

    Smaller .Tiff Files?

    Here's how my workflow might go; 1) Open DNG (Raw file) in LR, do some basic edits (Create Virtual Copy, just in case, for comparison or a way to get back 'quickly'), if it's enough then Export As Jpg. 2) If not then I Edit In > PS 3) In PS I make further changes, applying layers, filters and...

    Jpeg vs tiff vs original RAW file

    I have been using Canon for about 10 or 13 years now and just switched to a Sony this June. I kind of wished I'd picked the Canon R whatever instead of the a73, but that isn't part of this post... Since I changed cameras, the file type changed and the files are more than twice the size. I just...

    Workflow LR tiff pictures converted to jpg including improvements

    I have scanned many thousand slides into tiff format, 45-50Mb each. The slides are from 1980 to 2007. What is a good workflow to convert them to jpg at 5Mb each, second I need an automatic improvement in color and sharpness? I can not analyze each photo individually. I realise that a fair...

    Jpeg vs TIFF for editing

    Hi, I'm wondering about editing files in Lightroom, specifically the difference(s) between jpeg and TIFF. To explain my question, a little background first. Here is what my workflow currently looks like: - Use View NX 2 to convert NEFs to TIFF and import TIFFs to LR (keeping all NEFs backed...

    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...

    TIFF vs DNG

    I have seen a number of discussions as to the benefits of either TIFF or DNG but am still unclear as to which is most appropriate. I am going to be scanning a large number of slides using SilverFast scanning software to scan and manipulate. Then storing and editing in Lightroom and editing where...
