Yes, but depends on file type. If you change the metadata of an image (in the image or its sidecar) externally from Lr then presumably you are storing the new metadata in that file or sidecar. But Lr doesn't know about that new data. Lr stores metadata in its own database. Lr should notice the data has changed externally, and show a little icon in the grid ...

Black clipping has by no means to be a defect. For example an image that just shows the silhouette of a motive uses black clipping as a graphical effect. However, usually one tries to avoid black clipping because of the fear of losing details in the shadows. This quickly becomes a habit one stops to think about although deep blacks can also be beneficial ...

The questions are: Are you losing detail in the black region that affects the quality of your photo? E.g. if you have some dark texture there, clipping at black would kind of make the photo more sterile, although it is much harder to notice that in black areas. Also, black areas usually suffer from noise, and a heavy clipping at black will remove that. ...

Yes, Lightroom has a similar feature to Aperture's that could let you do what you want--assuming you actually have the bandwidth and patience to transfer half a gig of files to your cloud drive. The feature is called Smart Previews. It was a feature designed both for using Lightroom on tablets, as well as for being able to work on images on an external ...

I'm going to agree with mattdm here. Facebook in particular is notorious for its brutal image compression. If you want it to look nicer on Facebook, or Flickr, you need to have lightroom scale down the image to whatever setting Facebook is trying to get it to. My suggestion is to use one of the export plugins, and then play with the settings to find one that ...

The mystery is simply that the low-resolution versions of photos on Flickr are downscaled and recompressed with whatever arbitrary settings Flickr chooses. If you download the original version, it's byte-for-byte identical to the one you provide via Google Drive — if that looks different, it's a problem with your viewing software. How can you avoid this? ...

Lightroom does not alter the files themselves, it only makes a note to itself to treat those files as if they were from another date. *To change the metadata in the files themselves, you will have to Edit-> Catalogue Settings -> Metadata, tick "write on proprietary exif.." at the bottom. Then you will have to export and then import again. Furthermore, you ...

The look you are desiring is as much about the light being shot and the exposure levels chosen as it is about the film itself. Instax seems to be fairly low contrast, less saturated, and slightly cooler in temperature than what most digital cameras output by default. But if you look for photos tagged with "Instax" on flickr, you quickly see the wide variety ...

You can get a result like this by creating a duplicate layer on Photoshop, and giving it a Gaussian Blur, then lowering the opacity of that layer. This gives the image a radiant glowing effect. Also, Joshua Cripps does a good tutorial on this effect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGNctntIOx8 Hope this is the effect you're looking for

Short answer: No. DPP has no add watermark feature. There is a convoluted way to add watermarks via Digital Photo Professional, but it isn't remotely efficient enough to make it worth the trouble. Once you've done all the editing you wish to your file, you can use the compositing tool to combine that image with another. Although the compositing tool can ...

The manual doesn't mention the word "Watermark" so I would have to say no.

Exposure fusing is a different technique of combining images than HDR algorithms. So, it's basically having another way of doing a similar task. Photomatix, for example, performs both exposure fusing and HDR. What an HDR technique is doing is to remap the values of the set of images along a scale large enough to encompass the entire high dynamic range, ...

There is not a whole lot of difference between the two. While Enfuse does have the ability to set certain weights for contrast, saturation and exposure, it does not have any options to do manual tone mapping. That is important if you want to be able to tweak how the intermediate 32-bit HDR images will turn out before it is exported out as a 16-bit TIFF file ...

No worries, I just deleted a group of four images!!!! Go to the recycle bin and restore them. (They will be the uppermost recent entries in the list in Windows Explorer.) Go to Lightroom and Import from the hard drive where you keep your images. (Mine are on a 3 TB external drive in a folder called 'Lightroom ', subfolder '2016', sub-subfolder '01 JAN'). ...

It looks from your example images as though it could be a colour management issue. Lightroom uses different colour spaces for the Library and Develop modules, as explained here. (Key excerpt below) Lightroom primarily uses the Adobe RGB color space to display colors. The Adobe RGB gamut includes most of the colors that digital cameras can capture as well ...

I'm not 100% sure of your intentions, but try Mylio. The salient feature of Mylio is synching folders to other devices. So say you have FolderX on your laptop; it would synch everything from that folder to FolderX on your NAS. Not only that, you can choose to synch full sized RAWs, or previews, or thumbnails. And different folders and so on; kinda like ...

I'm assuming from the rest of your question that you actually want to export from Lightroom to Flickr away from home, not the other way around. I did a lot of research on this particular problem when I set up my workflow. You really nailed the crux of the challenge with this statement: Ideally I'd like to create a physical copy of my photo on my ...

You can not export from smart previews, because there is nothing to export: you need the original files for Lightroom to create JPEG. Lightroom can't work with multiple instances of the same image. However, you can use a few Lightroom supported features to get some of what I think you want. First, if you want to temporarily take some of your Lightroom ...

Although quite laborious, one way to get to where you want to go would be to edit the raw file globally in Lightroom and export a separate version of the entire photo edited specifically for each of the areas you wish to develop differently. Then combine them using masking and layering in photoshop.

As far as I know, the only values that can be brushed are the ones shown in the brush. I would guess that Adobe feels the others are out of the scope of lightroom, which is "only" a image editing tool, not an image creating tool like photoshop. So maybe you'd need photoshop and use the RAW file from there.

If this issue is still live, and you have some skills in programming, the Adobe scripting language (https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/scripting/pdfs/javascript_tools_guide.pdf) has the capability to read/edit metadata. (10 Scripting Access to XMP Metadata . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . page. 257) ...

You are probably changing the metadata with exiftool before changes are written by Lightroom. To ensure you don't loose LR changes when using exiftool; Make the develop changes in Lightrooom, save metadata in LR, run exiftool, then read metadata in LR.

Several ifs involved here. If you can see an image to edit I would assume that the originals were saved with smart previews enabled. If so, any edits to the preview will be applied to the original when the xmp's which are created are 'reunited' with the originals. According to Adobe: "Note: Smart Previews are stored in the [Catalog Name] Smart ...

I'm going to guess you want the previews up to cull or select on a time deadline? (Some more info on use case may help people answer). I love Lightroom, but it just is not the right tool for fast processing of new shots. Most raw files include a preview already rendered, but Lightroom ignores (mostly) and builds its own to accommodate presets, etc. ...

I use this infrequently with digitizing negatives, and there are a bunch of issues that can come up, and often this is a bit of "close your eyes, change a few things, cross your fingers and hope". Some specifics I've found: (1) format the card in the camera before you start (I realize the card is not to be used, but when you plug in a camera to the ...

Smugmug has a lightroom plugin that is excellent, and I know of no restrictions on how often an image can be replaced, in place. It is not a free solution but it is a very solid one that is not very expensive; it also supports custom domains (varies by plan you pick). I think most of their competitors work the same (e.g. zenfolio) though I have not used ...

Avoid using the same word in two different places in the hierarchy. For example, you might have indoor and outdoor keywords, which allow a smart collection to determine whether a photo should also have furniture or nature keywords. Many keywords make sense in only one place in the hierarchy, but some keywords make sense under both indoor and outdoor, such ...
