Re: RAW-convertors (Nikon Capture NX2 replacement)

Also FWIW, my preference is DxO Optics Pro - I've recently upgraded to the new Version 10. Not cheap (for the Elite edition, at least) but great value...

Re: File Name Conventions, xmp files, and raw files

Unfortunately, I also have multiple folders inside one folder, whereby the sub folders host different images from the same event, but are from either (a) a different camera (b) a different photographer, or (c) some for other reason. So, ultimately, I will have had may be 2 or even 3 codes in the fi...

Re: File Name Conventions, xmp files, and raw files

The name scheme that will be used is like this: "Date_code_accession number.extension" For example, "20140613_svbd_0001.jpg", "20140613_svbd_0002.jpg", etc. My naming scheme is PhotographerName-YYYYMMDD-CameraCode-SequenceNumber_suffix.extension PhotographerName because not all photos were shot by ...

Re: Default program for import when inserting a memory card

Hi - and welcome to the forum! It looks as though that isn't a standard feature, however I've tracked down some software (http://defaultprogramseditor.com/) and instructions (http://www.7tutorials.com/customize-file-types-autoplay-default-programs-settings-default-programs-editor - scroll down to "H...

Re: Can I import key words at a top level?

I can move the structure into one of the default Catalogue labels provided (which you do not seem to be able to delete forcing you to have unwanted Catalogue labels in your structure) but can not more the entire structure up one level from within Lightroom Keywords. I'm trying to remember how I sol...

Re: Wish: Dynamic Search + Collections = Dynamic Collections

Since the conversation here has turned back towards portfolios, and at the risk of continuing the conversation in two places, it might be worth me posting a section of the comment that I've just added to Mantis ticket 2525, which looks similar to your suggestion, Tom: ...in collections, one solution...

Re: Wish: Dynamic Search + Collections = Dynamic Collections

Once we agree that there must be some notable differences between smart collections and existing portfolio collections, the question of whether to mix them together or to create a dedicated catalog category (smart portfolios?) for smart collections becomes valid. Personally, I don't have a strong p...

Re: Establishing and maintaining a category label hierarchy

My thinking is I can export them and have a searchable text file, but it appears the descriptions aren't exported with them. Is there a way to do that? Yes, but not directly. If you know what you're doing - and I guess you do since you were thinking of writing some software yourself - you could ext...

Re: Establishing and maintaining a category label hierarchy

Ideally it would let you easily create, edit, and modify the labels, and even add more info like a description to them, but also allow you to export a list that could be imported into PS. ...How do you manage your labels - strictly in PS, or with outside assistance? I have no problem doing it withi...

Re: Wish: Dynamic Search + Collections = Dynamic Collections

Yes, that would be an interesting rationalisation. Similar to how you can have both 'Playlists' and 'Smart Playlists' in iTunes, for example. "Smart Collections" perhaps? At it's simplest, I guess you could use the dynamic search panel to construct the query, but then could have an option on the dyn...

Re: Need primer on versioning

Thanks for the input. I give up. I tried this on other folders, with the same result. Ctrl-r did nothing to help. I assume that the "main version detection scope" setting is wrong and should be something other than the default, but when I cross out the default, nothing else appears. In the absence ...

Re: Need primer on versioning

Be aware that there are some peculiarities in tagging images in version sets: * when you Assign catalog labels to images in a version set, the label will be applied to all images in the version set. * when you apply Details to images in a version set, the details will only be applied to the main ima...

Re: Face detection - versions

A very cool improvement for PSU v4+ would perhaps be a function to re-align existing face tags (person-linked area tags) to nearest detected face rather than creating a new unlinked area. Maybe there could be a 'smart cascade' that looked for a matching pattern of faces in the other versions, and a...
