Just don't export every single image separately. Do all your edits in Lightroom and just select all photos and export with a preset. When the first preset is done, just export with the second preset, and so on. Just create presets with naming and file formats, sizes beforehand. Then, the next time you export all selected photos, you can use (for example), ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Light Zone is free and much like Lightroom. Give it a try. It's free http://lightzoneproject.org/

I have just had the exact same problem. My graphics driver for my Radeon HD 5800 Series gfx card got updated, noticed that the Acceleration option in Lightroom was activated, but didn't have a chance to check it out until today, and it keeps crashing. Long story short, though I haven't found an official support answer yet, a LOT of of my searching points at ...

I can't comment yet, sorry. Did your images ever go into LR 4? I had the same issue with photos that went through Lightroom 4. There was an issue with LR4.2 through 4.4 that caused corrupt photos. This may or may not be your issue, but you mentioned these photos are very old. I had lots of my files that were affected and it was only luck that I ...

Photoshop and Lightroom do work hand in hand together. Lightroom is easier to master compared to Photoshop, as Photoshop has many more tools and functions. But both software tools serve different purposes. So you need both

(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.

HUE relates to the colour at the edge of the Colour Wheel - there are no limit/s - imagine an ant walking around the edge of a clock face it will eventually come back to where it started walking SATURATION relates to the percentage of the number of photons of a particular frequency/HUE, or combination of frequencies/hues, in a specific area - the limits ...

I'm posting the solution I developed starting from the hint by speshak. In the end I did it with a bash script. It exports all the web galleries in my catalog and prepares some files according to my CMS. There's some stuff that is specific for my needs, but I think the script could be useful to others anyway. There's still a problem with sorting. I was ...

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 ...

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 ...

You might be able to exploit the fact that a LR catalog is actually a SQLite database. I've written ruby scripts in the past to generate statistics on my photos. The sort of data you're after probably isn't much more difficult to produce. Mac OS ships with the sqlite command line tools. If command line interfaces aren't your thing, there are several ...
