From my experience you can only upload photos to Facebook. Once they're there you can't manage them from lightroom. You have to login and managed them on Facebook.

Lightroom can certainly do this. The easiest way (that I can think of) is to make a new catalogue (this keeps the catalogue fresh and clean and avoids the need for hours (depending on number of photos) of Lightroom removing photos from the catalogue) and copy all photos across to your new drive, using the import function. This method moves all photos across ...

I recently ran into the same problem. What seemed to fix it for me was simply to rename (within LR) the folder the images were in (I actually did this with a parent folder) and then change the name back. No steps in between. Weird, but it worked.

1) Adobe has support for plug-ins to add their own metadata this data is stored in the lightroom catalog. From the SDK doc "Values stored in custom metadata fields are stored only in Lightroom's database. In the current release, a plug-in cannot link custom metadata fields to XMP values or save them with the image file. " 2) No. However you might be able ...

I think I've managed to solve this down to any of the following solutions: Do it manually and half-assedly by moving photos into new folders. Doing it month-by-month won't take that long even with loads of photos, because there are only so many months in a year. Shouldn't take more than fifteen minutes, plus however long it takes to actually move the ...

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.

I figured it out, the photos have to be shot in RAW. I was editing trying to edit via jpg that was shot on the 70d with the sigma 18-35. Thanks for you help @ElendilTheTall

Short answer: It can be, depending on what you'll do. Long answer: Usually, from database/storage point of view, the keywords engine is split in two (groups of) tables. Now I'll take in consideration the simplest case with just two tables which will explain pretty clearly (IMHO) the phenomenon. The first (group of) table(s) is the table which holds the ...

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."

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 ...

I can think of two solutions to your problem: Remove all photographs from the catalogue (or deselect "don't include suspected duplicates" option in Import) and use the Move function in Import to re-add them and sort them by date etc. Advantages: Only uses Lightroom and so no need to have another program Only need to know one user interface ...

From within Lightroom, use the Import Photos and Video… command from the File menu. Select the folder containing your images in the left hand column, and use the Move option at the top of the screen. In the right hand column, in the Destination panel, select by date from the organise drop-down menu, and select the date format you want to use in the menu ...

A couple of software tools can provide this - PFrank and Bulk Rename Utility are two that I use. They can read the EXIF data and create sub-folders based on the data exactly as you requested. Like anything, read the instructions and practice on some image copies.

I see "itunes" and think Mac, so this might not help you, but anyway. It is AT LEAST available for Linux and Windows, I have no idea about Macs. There is a Linux'y command line tool named "ExifTool" (google it!) - it can read out EXIF data from many files (many formats), and it also has the capability to rename and move about files - setting the filename ...

You can either wait for Adobe to add it in an update, or if you can't wait you can download the Lens Profile Downloader. If the lens profile isn't available yet you can make your own with the Lens Profile Creator. Both are available to download from Adobe here.

The easiest way to check this is to import a controlled vocabulary with large number of files. For example, David Rieck, an author of the ControlledVocabulary.com has a LR's version of his CV that contains several thousands of well-structured keywords. Performance is a wide termin and it might reflect to different aspects of the program. In your case, you ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

When you copy your lens profile settings and paste them on another picture taken with the same lens you will have the same correction applied. In case of a different lens you will have the same parameters applied on a different lens profile.

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 ...

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).

You can't. Lightroom (LR) ignores the in camera settings that were in effect at the time the photo was taken and applies its own preset or auto settings. When you first open a RAW file with Digital Photo Professional (DPP) applies the in-camera settings that were active at the time the image was recorded to the preview you see on your screen. If you are ...

To import directly to a NAS, try mapping the network drive and give it a drive letter. If that does not work, set up (depending on your NAS) an iSCSI Lun. Save the import preset.

After connecting the computer to my tv and back to this monitor the issue was gone. Nothing of what I've tried work and seriously had no clue as to what happened. Sorry I could not provide any good solution if anyone out there eventually will face this problem.

The change in angle all but requires the use of panorama software such as Hugin because only(?) these programs have the features you need. You don't have to stitch the results as there's a flag to output single images.

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 ...

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 ...

While this is a shot in the dark, I've had problems in the past with software creating unreadable icc profiles because of character encoding problems (I'm looking at you xrite). In my case some software could read the file, some couldn't. Try copying the content of the icc (icm) profile into a plain text editor, saving it, and replacing the original with the ...

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

In the end I ended up importing two backup lrproj files Lightroom had made automatically into my current project. This resulted in up to 3 duplicate virtual copies, but it also restored all of my development adjustments. I then created a new smart collection that filtered all virtual copies without adjustments. Steps can be found here. ...
