Hi all

There must be a way to set import preferences on the new lightroom so if you've shot raw & jpg you can only import one or the other? The only onlince advice seems to relate to lightroom classic

help pls!

thanks

To avoid, I tend to pre-sort locally (filter a folder and then copy the ones I want or delete the ones I don't)

Delete - no, not seen that. Rules should be:

Delete from an album - it deletes but stays in All Photos
Delete from All Photos - deletes from everywhere but keeps a copy for 60 days (or until you delete from the Deleted folder)

Grayed over - so then can you do anything with it (like edit)?

Ok that seems to have sorted itself out

Next problem - I can't seem to see an option to set a specific file name when exporting files - or with the new cloud lightroom 'save to'

any idea how I do this?

many thanks!

I think Paul's just had a bit of a "senior moment" (though he looks too young to be having those), and has confused the cloudy Lightroom (which doesn't yet have export renaming) with Lightroom Classic (which does).

Thanks Jim

I have to be honest after some years off using lightroom it seems to just be a less efficient way to batch process - something as simple as renaming is pretty crucial!

Ok my next question - is there a way for me to easily download and migrate my current project to Classic?

many thanks!

Hi Dan, looks like we missed this question. Save to > Original Format and importing into Classic is probably your simplest option. Alternatively, if Sync wasn't already on in Classic, turning it on will download the cloud contents.
