Plugins are retained when you upgrade. However, there is no guarantee that they will work properly with the new version of Lightroom. If the plugin is still maintained, there will probably be an update if this is necessary.

Even though the files from your new 7DII are in the .cr2 format, the data in a raw file is always sensor specific. That is, each different sensor design must be demosaiced/converted differently to get the same standardized results. Lr 3 is a while back. The latest version of Adobe Camera Raw (which is used by Lr to demosaic raw files) that is compatible ...

In short the use of metadata is the most powerful and flexible way to be able to find and organise your photographs and Lightroom is designed with that approach in mind. Adding location metadata and some keywords (as needed) makes it easy to find groups of related photographs - my main filter is by date and location with keywords being used to tag types of ...

(I'm going from memory here.) Lightroom for Windows let's you "Show Parent Folder" by right-clicking a folder in Lightroom's hard drive pane. By showing enough of the parent folders you should see a structure that matches your hard drive folder structure.

Everyone has their own needs and their own ways of doing things. The trick is to use the tools available to make life easier for yourself in achieving what you want. Ways I make life easier for myself include: Applying custom metadata presets on import to add copyright information etc. to the metadata. Metadata presets can be applied after import too. If ...

cmason's answer has covered the how to get the photos out of Photos. However, here's where you first went wrong. When you import images to Lightroom, Lightroom gives you four different ways to do this, and they're all at the top of the Import window. You select which one you want by clicking on it. From left to right, the options are: Copy as DNG. This ...

I don't know of any import plugin for Lightroom to Photos app. However, it is possible to import from the Photos repository, just not that simple. Photos.app copies all the photos it manages into a separate repository, called "Photos Library". On your Mac, go to your Pictures folder, and look for something called Photos Library. Right click on it and ...

One key aspect of LR, one that many users initially struggle with, is that its organizational features mostly try to abstract you away from the file system and folders. LR invites you to see your photos as a collection or database, and you typically organize them by different dimensions, not by file location. I cannot tell you which of those methods or ...

Lr and the Friedl Picasa plugin can do all that, sort of. Lr and the plugin do not, of course, know about the photos you have already uploaded to Picasa by other means. How could they? But going forward you import into Lr. Edit. Put into a new album created in the Picasa publish service. Publish. Later, if you change certain parameters (and there is a list ...

my suggestion would be to learn how to use Lightroom in it full capabilities as Lightroom manages a catalog database for images and another database for edits where as Picasa uses another method of tracking images and saves edits directly to the same file or another file if you are dealing with raw images. Lightroom does allow for a way to leave tags and ...

Welcome to the Photoshop tax on new cameras. :) Essentially, RAW is not an acronym or a file format or a standard. It's a raw data dump from the sensor/processor. And it's different for every single camera model. The CR2 files from your 7DMkII are different from the CR2 files of your 7D. And since Adobe has no time travel capability, they can only ...
