• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation.

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.
  • 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.

Photo's not syncing

My Lightroom keeps saying it is syncing 117 photo's and insists I do not shut down the program but they never sync.

How do I clear this tally or force it to ignore or find the rogue files?

I've just spotted your previous thread about missing photos. That could certainly explain why some aren't syncing, if they're still missing. I don't suppose there's a Sync Errors collection in the Catalog panel?

The update didn't work

There ar a lot of errors now listed - is there a way of clearing those or overridng them to clear the sync list?

Ok, look at the error photos. Do they have rectangles with exclamation marks in the corners? If so, you need to reconnect the missing files.

NO - I have corrected those - the others are metadata errors etc

Metadata errors - that are showing in Classic's Preferences > Sync > Activity section, you mean? Sometimes a minor nudge, like +1 sharpening will clear those. A screenshot or two might help, if that doesn't do the trick.

I am not sure why but since the latest update there is now only 21 photos stuck syncing so I will tackle those when I have time
