I stuff these into collections to collate them eventually resulting in a useable hierarchy. Problem is there is a Scan 2 with a file named slide 1A. Merging these collection shuffles them so slide 1A follows slide 1 if I sort by file name. Somehow the EXIF data on these image doesn’t read off the slide so capture time does not work. I didn’t know how to rename the files after import until you clicked on the hamburger and it said “Batch Rename”. You are my hero of the day! Thanks!!! Reply alanhcooper March 21, 2020 You mentioned in one of the videos, this one, I think, that you can collapse photos for which you have made a virtual copy into the main image to make culling and editing more convenient. I can’t find that place in the workshop. Could you help me out? I should have been taking notes. The volume of material is overwhelming, mostly in a good way, and there are so many tips that I can’t remember many of them. Reply Steve_Perry March 22, 2020 The tip is under the Stacking video 🙂 However, to save you the trip, just right-click the little box with the number in it for the expanding and collapsing options. Reply John Conover April 2, 2020 Steve, After watching your excellent video program, I have dedicated myself to resume organizing in LR after a long hiatus. I will do it in Classic which is part of my Adobe photography CC plan. An update came through a couple days ago from Adobe describing LR 2020, which is cloud-based and appears to emphasize mobile devices. It appears totally different from any version of LR I have seen. Is this an indication that they are moving away from the traditional approach? Reply Steve_Perry April 3, 2020 Nope, they just have two versions. One for mobile and one for desktop. Lightroom Classic is the current desktop version and was actually updated about a month or so ago I think. Reply Rick Beldegreen April 23, 2020 I am trying to remove my address from my contact info as you suggested. I have tried editing my copyright preset, synching, autosynching, copy & pasting. Nothing seems to delete the address other than doing it individually on each image. What am I missing here? Reply jscorbin April 28, 2020 Hi Rick, I had the same problem, then found that you can: 1. Edit the contact info on one image, to remove the address, etc. 2. Select multiple images, with the target being the one you edited. 3. Do an Auto-Sync of the metadata, and select the blank fields — they will show up as red because they are blank. Reply jscorbin April 28, 2020 Oops, hit the wrong key… 4. Make sure nothing else is checked. 5. Click the Synchronize button. The rest of the images will have the address, etc. removed from the Contact info. Reply Rick Beldegreen May 9, 2020 Thanks, that worked. Appreciate the help Reply Blake Hornberger May 14, 2020 Hey Steve, Your videos are eye opening. I have one concern about Copyrights. Are there specials steps that need to be followed to “copyright” my pictures? Or does just showing that I’m copyrighting them in metadata take care of that? Reply Judith Duffy July 1, 2020 I do a lot of bird photography and I’ve got a keyboard taxonomy/hierarchy of birds, so I keyword them all. Later when I select several to export for Flickr or my website – I’d like to just copy the keyword(s) to be the title in the metadata. Do you know of a way to do this? Reply Steve_Perry July 1, 2020 You can try making a custom preset for export – one of the options is actually for keywords, I think that should do it. See the exporting video first, then give it a shot 🙂 Reply duncanmacfarlane1 October 27, 2020 Just what I needed ! I’ve got some crazy long file names ( which annoy me mote than anything), so I can clean this up… Thanks ! Reply Leave a Reply to Jack Williams Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
