  • Replied in Workflow
    I wasn't making a statement about storage, I was trying to make a statement that the original RAW, just like a film negative, contains information that is not present in the final edited version ...
  • Replied in Workflow
    Some of the answer depends on what your software is, and what your goal is with regards to the finished/edited photos. But the general philosophy is to save the RAWs (just like back in the film ...
  • Elements will know that the same file name, but with different modified time and file size, is a different photo. So its not going to prevent you from importing brand new photos just because the ...
  • Please explain how to do that, because although I use DropBox a little for non-Lightroom reasons, I don't see a way to confirm that the update has completed. And this is a crucial piece of ...
  • The reason I do NOT do this is because when you find the photos using other software that is not Lightroom, is that you cannot access the edited photos outside of LR, only the unedited original. I ...
  • The easiest solution, and least time consuming, is to install LR on both computers, and then have your photos and catalog file on an external HD which can be moved from computer to computer.
  • The alternative, which many people use, is to use folders by capture date, but to put all organization into metadata, such as keywords, captions and titles; and then don't use the folder names ...
  • Good point, use MOVE instead of COPY in that situation.
  • Okay, if he has a single folder, I would not recommend this. I still recommend COPYing the photos into subfolders when you import into Lightroom. Leaving huge numbers of photos in a single folder ...
  • For anyone who doesn't want to watch the video, you change your import options to COPY the files to the external HD. In the import dialog box, you select (under Destination) a folder on your ...
  • You have most likely (accidentally) imported using the COPY option. So what did LR do? It did exactly what you told it to do and copied the photos into a different folder. What folder? The one ...
  • The speed of the disk which holds the photos has such a trivial impact on speed that you will never notice the difference. There really is no problem putting photos on an external drive. There is ...
  • Seems like you are just looking for an excuse to create unnecessary work for yourself. Number of images? NO -- there is no known limit to the capability of a LR catalog, and people have reported ...
  • I am in agreement with Dper2016, you are just making unnecessary extra work for yourself. Keeping everything in one catalog is just so much easier than moving some stuff to another catalog, and is ...
  • How utterly pointless! Adobe knows they have problems in this area, what could the survey possibly tell them that they don't already know? But furthermore, these types of self-selected survey are ...

  • When you remove a file from Lightroom, the record of information about that file in the database is removed as well, so any information about that photo is also removed from the database. If you ...
  • I am concerned, MacUser2, that one of the things suggested in this thread was that you use a backup of your LR catalog, and its not obvious from your words that you have a recent backup of your LR ...
  • Less wear and tear? No, I think that's incorrect. In fact, I have no idea what you mean. The benefit of smart previews, if you create them, is that you don't have to have the drive with your photos ...
  • This slowdown because of lots of brushing or lots of spot healing is a known deficiency in Lightroom, a drawback of the non-destructive editing methodology (which otherwise works wonderfully). This ...
