Are you wondering about the distinct list of keywords in an entire catalog or are you wondering about the number of keywords for a single image? I am doubtful that there is any practical limit to the number of keywords allowed in a Lightroom catalog. It wouldn't make sense to have an artificial limit in the software itself but it is possible. Lightroom is ...

Try right-clicking a picture and find the option "Go to Collection". It should contain the list of collections where that picture is.

At least according to TechCrunch, Adobe are "committed to helping interested iPhoto and Aperture customers migrate to our rich solution". ArsTechnica, quoting TechCrunch, have a slightly different spin on the situation, saying that Apple's developers are "working with Adobe to work on a transitionary workflow for users moving to Lightroom". However, both of ...

Your example is in fact worse than you realize: the rule keywords contain words John Doe will find photos with the keyword John Irvin Doe, John Joseph Doe, John Doe, as well as partial matches like Jane Doe and John Smith. The trick is quotes: a filter with the rule keywords contain words "John Doe" will find only the keyword "John Doe."

I have LR5 and just tried this and it didn't complain to me, but you could try this script provided by Adobe (for use with LR4, but maybe it still works).

Lightroom generally stores the changes you have made and the history of changes you have made in the lrproj file. If you have moved the images, it is still possible to use your existing project, however you must first tell it the location of the new files. When you view the catalog in your original project, it should show little question marks overlayed ...

In Lightroom there are various settings that come under the 'Lens correction' umbrella. The 'Enable Profile Corrections' flag will correct the image based on the type of lens it was taken with, so if you copy it from an image taken with a 10mm lens onto an image taken with a 20mm lens, it will correct the latter for distortions caused by the 20mm lens. If ...

Why would you move existing projects over? If you're thinking of moving to Lightroom you could start new projects there... but why not keep your existing Aperture projects for the moment. That way, when Adobe release a solution for migrating across you have less work to do. Or you can just migrate to Photos if that proves to be suitable for your needs.

So, while I have a Mac, I've never specifically used Aperture. Nevertheless, the way I would attempt to solve this would be to export the version (not the original) to 16 bit TIFF and then import the TIFF and the original RAW into Lightroom. You might need a fair bit of disk for this... I assume you already know how to do this, but for others, see this ...

A quick search says that yes, the XPKeywords field is imported as Keywords: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/772784. That said, it's worth noting that the many "XP..." fields are not standard EXIF fields so I would not expect them to work.

There is no simple "consolidate library" option, nor any plugin I'm aware of that will manage this for you. As you no doubt know, Lightroom doesn't care where you store your files or what sort of directory hierarchy you might use (if any). In other words, moving these files is for your own satisfaction only. 30k files in one folder could be a performance ...

Your question isn't correctly written. I'll try to untangle it, tough. You cannot say that till "n" keywords you won't get any performance degradation and from "n"+1 (ok, "n"+100 or whatever) you suddenly will feel it. The performance degradation is a quite incremental process. It is rather an oblique line and not a stair-like graph. Also, of course, it ...

From what you describe I do not believe Lightroom has an exact equivalent. Overall I understand why someone might ask the question that you have and desire that view. It is the standard view for graphical operating system folders such as Windows or OS X. The thing is when you have 10's of thousands of images and hundreds or thousands of folders, showing an ...

Try using a spyder 4 pro or another product with similar capabilities.

Lightroom backs up your catalogue in a database file. The changes to development can be saved to a sidecar file (xmp) or directly in the image. If you have xmp sidecar files enabled, you should still have them in that folder in finder. If you are gettin "?" next to folders in your catalogue, you can just tell lightroom where those folders are. It is ...
