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.

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 ...

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 ...

I don't know the actual reason for JPEG/RAW mode, but it's the mode I use most of the time. Occasionally somebody asks me for a particular photo, and it's easier, faster, and more convenient to give them the JPEG than to load it on my laptop and edit in LightRoom or Capture One. RAW + JPEG is also nice because sometimes the out of camera JPEG is "good ...

My understanding is that the convention of RAW+JPEG started early in pro digital photography (like Sports Illustrated at a bowl game) when computers were slower than they are today and RAW file tools more cumbersome to use. The idea would be that Photo Editors would look through the JPEG files to find the shots they needed. They then sent the corresponding ...

In-camera .jpg produces more accurate colors. At least, that is my experience, especially with artificial lighting. For an example where post-production converters failed, see here. Not only did Lightroom fail, but the raw converter from the same manufacturer could not even produce the right colors. I was really glad I happened to have raw+jpg enabled that ...

I shoot JPEG + RAW when I use my older cameras with bad displays such as the 1Ds mk II. The display of that camera is almost useless (but the image quality is great) and I need another way of quickly confirm that focus is correct etc. I use a WiFi enabled memory card to transfer the JPEG:s to my tablet for quick review and then I import the RAW files to my ...
