  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Synch?

My external hard drive containing my LR catalog recently crashed. When I opened LR from an automatically backed-up version, I received a message about synching having been discontinued due to the automatic backup version possibly not being up to date. How should I handle this? I will make a new backup copy as soon as I receive a new external HD, but would like to use my current LR images in the 2-3 day interim.

Turn on sync. The warning is just a warning, and it is correct because you did use a backup to restore your catalog. BTW, you don’t need sync to work with your local images.
