Here is a modified version of Tomy's Python script. Differences: multiple raw extensions allowed remove jpg only if the pairs are in the same folder (avoid accidental removal of a jpg named like a raw file in an other folder) case insensitive #!/usr/bin/env python # Script: remove_jpg_if_raw_exists.py # # Description: This script looks in all sub ...

Yes the LR5 installer will migrate a LR3 catalog to LR5, automatically. Better yet, the installer will make a copy of your LR3 catalog, and only migrate the copy, so that your original LR3 catalog is left intact, in case there are problems. So have no fear, install LR5 (LR3 install will remain).

I think I have a good workaround. Of course a plugin for this task would still be the best. I did this with Lightroom 5. Add the photos you want to convert to the (empty!) Quick Collection and select them all. You could also just select the photos without adding them to any collection. But then it's VERY important that you don't (accidently) unselect any of ...

Here's a Python script that moves JPG files when no corresponding RAW file exists. Useful on Mac OS X! import os import shutil raw_ext = '.CR2' jpg_ext = '.JPG' destination = '/Users/JohnSmith/Desktop/jpgs/' for filename in os.listdir('.'): (shortname, extension) = os.path.splitext(filename) if extension == raw_ext: if os.path.isfile(...

The Lightroom Queen explains how to make Lightroom apply lossy or lossless DNG compression to raw files (including DNGs) that are in your photo library: Select the images. (This means LR can only do this one folder at a time.) Go to Library menu > Convert Photos to DNG... [not a memorable command name for this purpose] In the dialog, pick: Only convert RAW ...

In addition to Lightroom's luminance and color noise reduction tools, you can sometimes achieve additional color noise reduction by manually desaturating the color that is specific to the noise in your image. For example: Some image sensors produce a magenta grain under certain conditions. If color noise reduction isn't effective at targeting this grain, you ...

Here is another bash version using find (Linux). As with Ben Pingilley's answer, you can install Cygwin to get bash on Windows. #!/bin/bash read -p "please enter file suffix for raw format (e.g ORF, NEF, CR2): " suffix find . -type f -iname "*.${suffix}" | \ while read line do lowercase=$(echo "$line" | sed "s/${suffix}/jpg/gi") uppercase=$(echo "$line"...

Here is a solution for bash (Linux or Mac OS X). On Windows, you can install Cygwin to get a copy of bash. keep=$(ls | grep -v ps | grep -A1 JPG | grep NEF) for i in $keep ; do mv $i $i.keep done ls | egrep -v '(JPG|keep)' | xargs rm -f change=$(ls | grep keep | sed 's/.keep//g') for i in $change ; do mv $i.keep $i done

I like the bash script for OS X (by T.Toivonen), but I have noticed there are a few issues. It did not like my directory names, which contain spaces. That required a bit different handling of the find command. The original script only works for lowercase extensions. I have slightly improved that part of the script to account for extensions that are in ...

Here's my take on this issue. A lot of good ideas came from earlier scripts mentioned here. This is a bash script for OS X. It looks for files that exist with same base filename and dng+jpg extensions. If a jpg is found with an exactly same name as dng, then that filename is displayed (-e), file is moved (-m) or deleted (-d). It will go through subfolders, ...

Here’s a bash script for Mac OS X. It may work on Linux with some changes. #!/bin/bash read -p "Delete JPEGs when DNG exists? Ctrl-C to cancel. [Enter] to continue: " for FILE in *.dng; do JPG_FILE=$(echo "$FILE" | sed "s/dng/jpg/g") rmtrash "${JPG_FILE}" 1>/dev/null done rmtrash is a utility that moves files to the Trash, instead of deleting them ...

I wrote the following Python script. Compared with ttaveira's script, it does some extra work. Looks in sub-directories. Creates destination waste directory. Removes files that already exist in waste directory to avoid move errors. # Script: remove_jpg_if_raw_exists.py # # Description: This script looks in all sub directories for # pairs ...

The Teekesselchen add-on works well too. Add-on's web site: http://www.bungenstock.de/teekesselchen/ Listing on Adobe: https://creative.adobe.com/addons/products/2652

I find a good way to go about this is always check the current version of PS or LR on the adobe site and see what the OS / Hardware recommendations are set to. once you have this information saved, take it to a computer store that manually builds computers or check one of the department stores for something with double the recommendations if you can afford ...
