  • 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.
  • Are you using the cloud-based Lightroom apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Apple TV and Web? Then you'll love my new book, Adobe Lightroom - Edit Like a Pro!

    You'll learn how to use the Lightroom cloud ecosystem to organize, edit and share your photos. You'll also come to understand the thought processes used by professional photographers when they're editing their own photos, so you can transform your photos quickly and easily. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.

After an intensive period of editing photos in Lightroom on my IPhone I got a message that my storage was almost full. I went into Lightroom and cleared the cache which recovered about 12GB. But under Local Storage it still says that there are 33,554,432.00 TB of Cached Files :eek: This sounds quite a lot to me (if these are Terra-bytes !). See attached. My IPhone itself tells me that Lightroom is taking up around 9GB.

Any ideas what is going on with these cached files and is there anyway to reduce the 9GB.

Did you just use the global "Clear Cache" option in the Settings menu? If you've got "store locally" enabled for any of your albums, they won't be affected by that option unless you disable the store locally option and then do the Clear Cache again. If you know which albums you were editing it, trying using the local album-specific clear cache option as you would have downloaded originals for those images.

None of the Albums have the "store locally" button activated and I used the global "Clear Cache" initially and then checked the "local cache" against each album. However, the global one seemed to clear everything out.

So assuming the Cache is really cleared and no albums are stored locally what is taking up the 9GB.
