This is answered right in the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom documentation on importing files: Lightroom determines a photo is a duplicate of another file in the catalog if it has the same, original filename; the same Exif capture date and time; and the same file size.

I don't think there is a way to do it automatically outside of writing your own plugin and I'm actually not even 100% sure that that would do it. For partially manual options though, use the rating filter on the previous import collection, set it to less than or equal to no stars and you will only have the unrated photos listed. Then select them all and ...

The way I would do it: Install BitTorrent Sync to your phone Install same software to your PC. Setup syncing (not backup) between your phone's camera photo folder and PC. In Lightroom's import dialog, select "Move" instead of default "Copy". The special thing with BitTorrent Sync compared to Dropbox/Google+ Photos is that a) it syncs directly between your ...

but I'd rather import them properly, rather than copy them, to retain the quality. I don't know the answer to the Windows part of this question, but there's a fundamental worry you have here that I want to assure you over. That "import" dialog box you were seeing before doesn't really do any magic. It just launches a program like Lightroom or some other ...

Yes to your title question. No to the one related to EXIF data. You can specify on import any number of static keywords but, without a third-party plugin, there does not seem to be a way to create keywords dynamically. What puzzles me is why would you want to add keywords from the EXIF since that would only duplicate information. Lightroom is equally ...

Just solved the issue by chance - I used exfatlabel to name my card and voilá it was auto-detected and works fine under Linux and in my 6d:)

thumb_IMG files are thumbnail images that Photos generates for imported images. So, you've probably imported the thumbnails, and not the originals. Assuming you have a default Photos/OSX setup: Go into your home directory's Pictures folder. Right-click/ctrl-click on your Photos Library.photoslibrary "file" and select Show Package Contents. This will ...

You have probably imported only low-quality preview files. You have at least 2 options: Import the master directory of your images into Lightroom. Things can get messy if you are still using another editing software besides LR. Copy the physical files directly from their repertories into a new one and import this new repertory to Lightroom.

Lightroom imports the pictures where you told it to do it, the position of the catalog is irrelevant. Here is an extract from https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/importing-photos-lightroom-basic-workflow.html, 5. Tell Lightroom where to put your photos. : On the right side of the import window, click To and specify where you want to save your copied ...

cmason's answer has covered 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". You will need to use the Finder context method command "Show Package Contents" to see inside the library; in there ...

I don't see photoshop as the right tool for that purpose. pnmcat from the netpbm package will easily produce such a strip, from an arbitrary number of images.

You should not have to import anything again. The information you add to the lightroom catalong is stored in a .lrcat file, which is separate from the photography itself. If you keep the folder structure of your photos on the new drive, you can simply "retarget" the existing catalog to look for your photography in a new location. To achieve this, follow ...

I found the solution by my by myself! I had changed pc during the moving I have changed the user name from Fabio to fabio. Lightroom had found the files but does not recognize the folders as the same.

You could simulate the same effect as iPhoto with some clever keywording on import, and a date search/filter. Lightroom supports some very rich filtering capabilities that combine the EXIF and ITPC metadata, as well as any keywords you may have added to your photos. You can easily add keywords to all photos imported at time of import (on the right-hand side,...

According to this post in the Adobe forums Lightroom (and Adobe Bridge) both ignore xmp sidecar files for JPEGs.

Most of Jeffrey Friedl's export plugins allow the opportunity to include EXIF data as metadata in the description / caption / keyword fields with tokens. Specifically I use the free (donationware) Metadata Wrangler Plugin. In your case you could use the "Special Keyword Processing" section to add keywords using these tokens on export: {CameraMake} {...

When you open the import dialog in Lightroom, you have, at the top middle, (up to) four options: "Copy as DNG", "Copy", "Move", "Add". Adding to the catalog will be done in all cases. "Copy as DNG", "Copy" and "Move" copy your photos from their source to the folder you set on the right side. "Copy as DNG" converts them to DNG in the process. "Move" will ...

You can't organize them by Lightroom without downloading them to your computer because LR can manage only local files. Make sure that you checked an option in your OneDrive settings to store offline copies of your images on your local PC.

You are handling RAW files. Obviously the picture in DigiKam will not match the preview image, having a fixed white balance, contrast, etc. RAW images store far more dynamic range than a JPEG does, too. You have to process the RAW image, using curves or all the available controls to arrive at a pleasing picture. There is nothing wrong with your "decoding" of ...

In May 2019, Adobe published a free Lightroom plugin for Mac to help people migrate from Aperture and iPhoto libraries. It does exactly what you want. Migrate from Aperture to Lightroom Classic on macOS. Here is what it includes: METADATA Flags Star Ratings Keywords GPS Data Faces: Face naming tags are mapped to keywords Rejects: Files designated as ...

USB-based flash card reader chipsets are notorious for their bad firmware and data corruption bugs (particularly when large block sizes get involved). Chances are, somebody recently rewrote the USB mass storage driver, thought to themselves, "What is this code? It doesn't appear to do anything", and was wrong. If you're a developer, please file a bug at ...

What issues should I be aware of around buying an import model camera? Items intended to be sold in one market or world area that are shipped to a different market or world area are often called 'grey market' items. Regional differences in pricing and constantly fluctuating currency exchange rates can often make it attractive to buy products in one country (...

The easiest way is to simply insert the MicroSD card, start Lightroom, then in Lightroom, drag and drop the folders that are on the SD Card to a folder that is on the SSD. Lightroom will probably prompt you to confirm the move. Lightroom will move the files from the SD card to the SSD. Before doing this, you may wish to right click on the top-most SSD ...

The 'Library' tab is likely using the jpeg preview generated in-camera and attached to the raw file. The develop module is probably reinterpreting the raw data based upon your choice for default rendering. Or vice versa, depending on your choices in Lightroom's settings options.

According to this Nikon page, NEF transfer in SnapBridge is only available if your camera supports WiFi (Bluetooth would likely be too slow), and as far as I can tell the D3500 has no WiFi.

The camera's built-in playback mode knows to just show you JPEG files when reviewing when a RAW also exists — there'd be no point in separately showing the RAW preview (whih will be identical). Then, you say imported photo on my phone. You note that you're transferring via the Snapbridge app. Unfortunately, these apps are made for quick social media sharing ...

Lightroom can import/convert an Elements catalog into a Lightroom catalog (both are just SQLite databases). The import process will retain your edits, star ratings, keyword tags, etc. Adobe has a webpage explaining the process. The basic steps are: Install Lightroom. Open Lightroom. Select the menu command File > Import a Photoshop Elements Catalog. ...

The problem is that the tools don't function the same way, and there isn't a 1-to-1 mapping of LR tools to darktable tools. Your converter could approximate the settings from LR modules, but I don't think you'll ever get 1-to-1 conversion.

Option 1: Email the image as an attachment to yourself. Then open attachment in your email app on your iPhone to view the image. Tap the image to see additional buttons, one of which will be to save the image to your iPhone. Option 2: Use messages app to send yourself the photo as message. Then save it as above. Option 3: Use DropBox, iCloud, or any third ...
