LR3 cannot import my LR2 catalog. It stops very time and says that 'Lightroom encountered problems when trying to update the format of the catalog file and cann ot use this catalog in this version of Lightroom.' A Adobe tech note suggests this is due to a corrupt database file.
However, the LR2 catalog does not make any problems when I ask LR2 to check its intengrity during backup. Also, seems to work great. Finally, I can optimise the catalog in LR2 without problems. Any suggestions are welcome. Hi all, Coming from a LR1.4.1 that both was very stable and had fine performance - I have had quite some difficulties to get LR2 similar stable and with similar performance. Initially LR2 crashed several times daily - not any specific pattern except running time.
After many hours troubleshooting - and with very good help from this forum - LR2 now seems to run stable with good performance. This is the list of 'optimizing' I have done. Maybe (hopefully) this can help other to improve performance and stability of LR2.
System: Macbook pro, OSX 10.5.4, 4Gb ram, 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. LR2 32 bit mode, 32K raw files (NEF) in one single db.
RAW files and previews/db on separate disc. The List: a) optimized db. (smaller db - but no other impact noticed) b) Increased cache from 1 Gb to 10 Gb (no impact detected) c) deleted all previews, thumbnail-cache and generated previews for all files using LR2 (took looong time - improved speed significant) d) deleted the pref. Files [com.adobe.lightroom.plist] (no impact noticed) e) by coincidence I removed my external Lacie Rugged firewire drive at a time where LR2 was locked. To my surprise - LR2 woke up.
I was able to recover a few following lockups the same way. Firmware updated in Lacie drive - no lockups detected since. F) decided to buy Idefrag and try to see if fragmentation could be an issue. My drive was very fragmented (even with 50 gB free space - the main lightroom db (800 mb) was divided in 1642 fragments!) (took looong time - improved speed very significant) LR2 is now running with same speed as LR1.4.1 - incl.
The new (super) tools. It has not locked-up for 2 days. With kind regards, Henrik Bach PS. 64-bit mode is still very slow on my system.
I'm having a problem with Leopard. I have a plugin for Photoshop that i was using for mounths now.
Suddenly it stoped working! I'me tried to make a fresh and clean install leopard instal, just installing the Photoshop and the plugin, and it still crashes!! I'm posting the crash log, to see if someone could helpme on this problem!

You can import some images into Lightroom 4 and work with these to determine if there are any issues that are deal breakers for you. Sorry, this in incorrect advice, Upgrading the LR3 catalog to LR4 is completely without risk.the original LR3 catalog remains untouched, and a NEW upgraded version is created. So no need to go looking for a 'saved copy' if you decide to go back to LR3.the original catalog is still there.

Eric, Follow up in thread titled '[FIX] Darker prints and color shifts when printing from Lightroom 2' Thanks. -- Patrick Philippot MainSoft Consulting Services www.mainsoft.fr. Win XP Pro SP3, Quad Core 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM I am creating a slideshow in an external application so that I can show it on computers without LR. In LR1.4 I could only use pdf to do this. Deltora Quest Cavern Fear Pdf. LR2 allows me to export JPGs with all the layouts and text overlays from LR, giving me more control over the final slideshow--a great feature to me.
The problem is that although I change the layout of the slides in LR2, when I export the JPGs (or pdf for that matter), it defaults to the original layout. I have trashed the preferences but that hasn't solved it. The catalog with the original layouts was converted from 1.4.1 and changed in LR2. Am I doing something wrong? How can I correct this? I have tried for several hours to make the new install of Adobe CS4 work. The Lightroom2 install worked fine.
Background: I have a macbook pro, OS/X 10.5.7, enough avail disk space. I had a trial version of LR2 and full CS2. I have done the following: checked 'repair permissions' - an OS/X utility that interfered with operating Capture NX a couple years ago, so I added that step. I have uninstalled every Adobe application, using Clean Script 3 and Clean Script 4. I have tried to install CS4 in a separate user account, which has since been deleted, and again both Clean Scripts have been run. I have restarted my computer and downloaded a fresh version of CS4. I have tired to install it as a Tial version instead of an upgrade, also.
It NEARLY installs, but at the very end of the install bar, after Bridge and before finishing Photoshop installation, I get a big red X and an error and find it is Error 2. The Adobe support pdf's have not helped, including those referenced by their little support bot. Have spent a couple hours with Adobe Support, also.
No one knows what Error 2 means. Also, the 'support' person closed my case as though it had been resolved - said he would call me back in one hour and 2ours 45 minutes later had not called back. He CLOSED the case, wasting my time and lying to me.
Lizzie, I had to uninstall EVERY Adobe product using their Uninstall script. Then had to shut down my computer and start again, add a NEW USER to my User Sign In screen, I created a new user (which I called CS4) and gave it the same permissions as the system owner/operator which is the permission level I am at on my Mac. Then I had to reinstall PS4 in the new CS4 user account. Because it is at the same permission level as my normal user account, I can access PS4. However, because your daughter might be at a reduced permission level and not have the ability to change and/or access everything, I don't know how you would compensate for that. I could reintall all the Adobe Products in my normal account, but for some reason, not PS4. I haven't tried since then to change it, and now have an extra user account on my sign in screen.
This also meant losing my copy of PS2 and the registration number, but I found the number on the old box - thank goodness - and could use that for the upgrade price. Be sure to record any registration id numbers before uninstalling Adobe products for which you have paid!
I've been a regular user of LR1. I am attracted to some of the new features in LR2 and have already purchased (but not installed) the upgrade. I was burned a bit with the LR 1.4 upgrade and I have read a fair amount about various problems in LR2. I do not like it when software I'm using crashes and causes me to lose work.
I am trying to decide whether to install LR2 now or wait until 2.1 comes out from Adobe. So, for all you LR2 users, can you tell me which of the following is most true for you: 1) LR 2 is at least as stable as LR 1 and I'm happy with it. 2) LR 2 has some stability issues that I hope Adobe fixes, but it's still worth upgrading as I haven't lost any significant work.
3) LR 2 has worse stability issues than LR 1 and I wish I had waited until 2.1 comes out. I have a 2.4GHz quad-core Intel processor so hopefully I won't be bit by performance issues in LR 2. Hey everyone, I am desperate *yet aren't we all at some point?' I have 2 sep. My external passport elite WD got dropped. It has lost all files after repeated scanning all are corrupt every last one.
Can't afford 3K forensic retrieval or reshoots. I did have them all open at one time in LR2, I can see them ALL.
I understand I can still post them to the WEB. I can not figure out how to get them on the web or thru what free hosting site. I need to know if there is anyway I can salvage these greyed out?
Mark folders with all the photos in all their glorious glory approx. 4800x3300 DNG files. I can double click them and their are huge and beautiful (well, to me) and now, I don't know what I can do to get them ONLINE I don't understand it at all. I am very NEW to all of this. What can I do to salvage these - can they be saved somewhere else? (please don't laugh) or eye roll. I already feel like an idiot.
Step by helmet wearing step to get THOSE missing but STILL THERE photos online? What free site can I go on to host my photos? Dont even know where on the web 'tab' in LR do I even put the site the picts are to be uploaded to. Again, helmet needed Can someone please help?
Vista LR2 CS4 Thank you. What you see in Lightroom - are just previews, that were built before dropping your Passport.
All you have are JPEG-compressed previews, your original RAWs died with your external HDD. You can get those previews from Lightroom's preview cache using a tool like LRViewer. I don't think you can create a web gallery from withing Lightroom. Lightroom will need to have the original master files in order to build a gallery. That's even if you have high quality previews prebuilt. So, again, if you extract the previews with LRViewer, save them as JPEG files and import into a Lightroom catalog instead of your DNGs - you will be able to upload a web gallery.
Hi, I am trying to render videos in PS CC 2014. Running win7x64 with 16GB ram. These videos were already rendered in previous version - PS CC with no problems! When I try to render in PS CC 2014 I get stuck during the first stage, right after i select 'rebder Video.' I am stuch in the next stage when ik says:'Initializing video export' My task manager shows PS keeps using%25 during this time. What can I do to solce this?

I think we have to chalk this up to user error. I cannot reproduce the problem this morning. LR2 is still running from last night, so it's not something that was fixed by restarting LR2. I use a pen tablet. My suspicion is that I may have moved the drag slightly off target as releasing it.
I do have problems hitting very small targets just right with the pen, and LR certainly has a large number of small targets. (For example, I am constantly closing the side window instead of scrolling when I try to click on a scroll bar but get off a little bit.). The performance of LR2 is noticeably worse than that of LR1 for my workflow. The most annoying issue for me is 'synchronizing' a folder. If the directory has a large number of files it takes LR2 many times longer to locate new files than it did LR1. This is a big problem in my workflow, which is: 1) Lightroom for initial sort/select 2) RPP or NX2 to convert selected RAWs (better RAW converters than ACR for Nikon NEFs, IMHO) 3) CS3 to post-process images 4) Lightroom to catalog, browse, and produce (email/Web/print).
In this workflow, every processed image requires a resync of the folder. LR1's sync wasn't exactly speedy. I had hoped LR2's would be faster. To my disappointment, it went the other way, adding minutes to my workflow for each image. Also annoying is the fact that, unlike LR1, LR2 folder-sync tries to import images with the same filename if they have different extensions. LR1 ignored files of the same name. LR1's approach was better for my workflow because it ignored the useless intermediate temporary TIF files produced by RPP and NX2 on the way to CS3.
LR2 is a real step backward for my workflow, as its new 'features' are not used. I hope this sync-performance problem is corrected in the next rev or I will be forced to start looking for another image browser.
I recently purchased the full version of LR2 after using the 30 day trail version of LR2. Mac Pro Dual-Core Intel Xeon2.66 GHz OSX 10.5.7 LR2 accepts the software liscence upon initial setup (confirmation within prompt says product is registered) but software closes after this. After spending many hours with tech support I am unable to use this software. Various procedures that tech support had me conduct included manually removing all LR2 files from the system re-installing LR2, re-installing LR2 under a new admin user, and logging in with safe mode and reinstalling LR2.
All procedures did not work. I am told that my case has been moved to a higher level technician and that Tech support will call me in 24 hours. Anyone having any similar problems and/or might have a solution? When LR3 betas came out I started using it to test out for a set of photos, leaving my LR2 catalog alone.
But now rthat LR3 is out, I cannot import either my LR2 catalog into my LR3 catalog or visa versa, I get 'lightroom could not import this catalog because of an unkonwn error', and the following in the console: 11:25:30Adobe Lightroom 3ServerProcess [AsyncDataServer( Temp2.lrcat )]ERRORSERVER: A command threw an exception. 11:25:30Adobe Lightroom 3ServerProcess [AsyncDataServer( Temp2.lrcat )]ERRORError: bad ordering in main fnames 11:25:30Adobe Lightroom 3AgImportFromCatalogERRORbad ordering in main fnames Anyone have any idea's what the problem is here? Workflow had been to import Nikon NEF files, convert to DNG in LR2, do my edits, and save the data within the DNG file. Tried to upgrade to LR3 tonight, using the trial version while I wait for my package to arrive. The catalog migrated just fine, with the exception that the edited DNG files were ignored.
DNG files that had not been edited seem to have imported just fine. But what fun is that. I need access to all my DNG files to continue the editing that I had been doing in LR2. I verified the DNG files were still on the computer. I then tried to sync one of the folders I knew had edited DNG files in it that hadn't been migrated in the catalog import. LR 3 refuses to acknowledge the files exist, and doesn't give me the option to import them.:-( Is there some option or preference I need to set/reset? Is this a known bug or issue?
Is there a workaround? Computer is a Intel Quad Core with 4 GB running WinXP Pro. Thanks in advance, - Arved. I don't remember what the settings were when I imported the catalog. Whatever the defaults were.
Whatever happened during import, I should still have the option to add the files when sync'ing a folder? Neither LR2 nor LR3 will allow me access to the edited DNG files now. I've erased and am rebuilding the catalog (all pertinent info was written to sidecar and/or within the DNG file, so I'm not anticipating any problems with this.
It's showing the expected 27,000+ files being imported). I think I'll try building the LR3 catalog the same way when I fire it back up, once I'm sure I'm back up and running in LR2. Thanks for the quick response! Feb 28, 2010- I had CS2 Premium on my old laptop. I'd updated to PS 3 and then to PS 4 (standard).
Then my LT crashed. I now have a desktop: Quad processer, 64-bit, 8 GB ram, two hard drives (C: 1 TB and D: 2 TB). I've installed PS 4 5, Reader 9 and Lightroom 2, and now find I need InDesign for a newsletter. How can I install all of the CS2 Premium files (except PS) without damaging my current Adobe program files? CS 2 came on four discs, with two 'Extras', so I can't tell which ones have which program. Thanks in advance.

I shoot weddings and events and make a new LR catalog for each job, so my image count maybe gets as high as 1300 images(jpegs at +/- 8 MB each). I save my images to my iMac's 500 GB HD (which has over 150 GB's free) and I am wondering if there is something in either LR's preferences or in the OS that I can try changing to get a little more speed out of my system? I have even gone as far as shutting down Safari and all other programs while I edit to get the most out of my processor...
No improvement. Here's what I am experiencing: - The crop tool takes between 3- 8 seconds to load with the spinning wheel of death making it's appearance if I rush it.
- It takes 2-4 seconds to zoom to 1:1 with standard previews. After I select my edit and convert to 1:1 previews, it can still take a few seconds to load. - It takes a second or so to switch from thumbnail to thumbnail (sometimes) and it always has about a 1 second delay in showing me changes that I've made in brightness, clarity, exposure etc. (LR2) never did any of these things!
So far, it is slower than LR2 in every way. There is no way I am going to upgrade my computer for LR3, so any suggestions on speeding things up a bit? @James: I don't think there's THE way to speed up LR3.
I'm pretty sure the problem is inside the LR3 code and it's easy to demonstrate a huge memory leak too (just look at the memory usage of LR while you are editing/switching to the next picture etc.) Reducing Screen-Resolution is of course no (good) solution at all because you have to run a TFT screen at the correct resolution - otherwise you won't be able to get a sharp image. And, LR2 is running fine with that same resolution, so IMHO this is no excuse even if there are new functions implemented in LR3. If your only problem would be the navigation, i heard that using a RAM-Disk for the cache would help.
Others say, that using a SSD drive for the catalogue and preview-files will help. But none of the 'tricks' can fix a memory leak or some 'bad' code with the clone-tool or the brush.
So, if you would do the same tricks with LR2 it would be even faster i think. We only can hope that Adobe is willing to see these problems and able to fix them soon. I've been experimenting tonight with loading the same file into Lightroom 2, Apeture, and Preview (OSX's default image browser). The file is a RAW file from a Pentax K7 in.dng format. The K7 is set to use sRGB as its colorspace.When I load this same file directly into each of the three above applications, the color is different in each of them. With both LR2 and Apeture I attempted to leave the settings completely neutral. In LR2 I did a 'Reset All Settings' on the image before making this comparison.
I am attaching a screengrab where I've laid the 3 images out on my desktop. From left to right: Apeture, LR2, Preview. As you can see, the color balance is different in each image, with LR2 being the most 'different'. But if you set the Apeture and Preview versions next to each other, they are fairly different in color temperature as well. Also and most obviously, LR2's version is far more saturated than the others. Also, the LR2 image shows considerably more ISO noise in the sky. (This was shot at ISO 2000, for those who are interested in how the K7 looks under those circumstances).I guess my question is just what's going on here, and, am I doing something wrong, especially in Lightroom, when I'm importing the photos, such that the proper color isn't being reproduced?
(Not that I'm sure that the lightroom version is 'wrong', but on the other hand I don't recall the sky being quite that dramatic a color of blue while I was there.) I've done some basic reading on color management in Lightroom 2 so I'm still getting the hang of things.Thanks. I am going to be adding a TIme Capsule as an NAS for my music files (to use with a Sonos music system). I am wondering if I can also move my photo files to the NAS so I can access my photos from both my Mac Pro desktop and Macbook Pro laptop (I would like to be able to keyword, organize and edit photos from both computers). However, I don't want to compromise my performance using LR2, and I have heard about people having issues using LR and a NAS drive). If I connect the Time Capsule directly to my Mac Pro via ethernet cable, but use it as a NAS drive wirelessly with my Macbook Pro, will I get decreased performance using LR2 on my Mac Pro (versus my current setup where my files are in my internal HD)?
Or does it just work as a NAS drive period, for both computers? The other alternative is to leave my files on my Mac Pro internal HD and just work on organizing and keywording on my laptop without making edits to the photos themselves (in which case I won't need to use a NAS). Thanks, Peter. I have Lightroom 4 and the plug-in LR2/Mogrify; which I purchased.
I am trying to send my images at 300 dpi to a photo lab to produce 4x6 prints with a border at the bottom that is 10% of the short side, and the other 3 borders are 2% of the short side. I then add text for a size 25 pixel font. I am happy with this look when I export to the file folder on the desktop. When I upload to the photo lab, their software wants to resize my prints; where I loose my border or part of the image or the larger border with the words cut-off. I know I have to do something with the canvas, but I dont understand what to do to get a fixed image size for a 4x6 print with borders and text. I need to know what the numbers are to imput in the Mogrify 'background canvas' and how many KB to 'compress to file size'. I have the 'image sizing' at 6' longest edge, 300 dpi for resolution I have the canvas at 1280 x 1920 The compression size at 300kb With this I am losing the top border and the other borders now look wierd.
I have pretty much put my image and canvas to 1782 and 1188 respectively. Yes, I need to put a description for each photo. These photos are from the 50's and I want this information on the front of the photo.
I am doing a DVD with a set of the regular images and a set of the caption images for most members. I am doing the captions to print for my father in-law who took these photos and is now 83. We are putting these images in an album. These were all slides before.
I compressed the size, because the pics were over a 1MB each. The quality of the picture is very good from the photo lab.
Borders are still a little wonky, but at least the photo lab no longer wants to crop the image. I should not have cropped the image before, because that is what gave me my poor results.
If I keep having problems, I will post the screen shots and a sample picture, if this site will let me post a pic. Thank you for your help. I just moved to a Mac Book Pro running Mac OS X 10.5.4 (9E17) and the latest CS3 and LR2. I have used an Epson 2200 successfully for years on my previous Windows machine. I have a color managed system. Now I have several issues on the Mac. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
My issues: 1) I see all of my profiles (icc files) in the CS3 Print screen but none are listed in the Epson printer setup screen. 2) My prints are awful; very magenta and with banding. Something fundamental is set incorrectly. What could it be? 3) I read about Epson Easy Print but I still have to go into the Epson Printer setup screen from the CS3 or LR2 print screen to, for example, turn off color management. 4) In LR2 when I go to the Epson Print setup screen and try to select Print Setting or Color Management, they are lined-through and I receive this message: 'The bundle Color Management could not be loaded because it does not contain a version for the current architecture'.
Any ideas on this? Thanks in advance for your help.
I have color differences between LR2 and CS4. I have set up both programs with the same color spaces. No presets are being applied. When I move a photo from one program to the other and back there is a shift in color. For example, going from CS4 to LR2, reds turn to orange, light blues go to pale grey or white.
The same file going from LR2 to PS changes back from orange to red ect. The same happens regardless of whether I am working on a calibrated monitor or my MacBook pro screen. Any thoughts? An interesting aside, when I change my Auto ImportInitial Previews setting from 'Minimal to 1:1', my thumbnails in LR2 show the color of the image as it showed in PS, whereas the larger preview is the color that appears in LR2. Ie, the reds look orange in the preview and red in the thumbnail at the bottom of the same screen.

My mother tried to use the photoframe to watch the videos shot by her Nokia phone. And the problem was that no sound was reproduced by the photoframe As far as I know, newer Nokia phones shoot videos in the following format Video: MPEG4 Video 640x480 Audio: AAC 48000Hz mono 768Kbps When I look at the Gigaframe L80 L81 features at the off. Cite I see that it is said to support only Audio: MP3 At the same time Gigaframe Q80 Q81 claim to support more sound codecs: Audio: MP3, AAC, OGG So I have the following questions: 1) Are Q80 Q81 actually more superior models than L80 L81? My parents thought that L80 L81 are better models, since they have a bigger screen. They thought that L80 L81 should have more features.
But it seems that Q80 Q81 support more sound formats. 2) Does Q80 Q81 actually support AAC support AAC audio streams in MP4 video files?
3) How can I know if Toshiba is going to add AAC support to L80 L81? Or maybe my parents should sell their L81 and buy Q81 or something else?
My parents are not going to use the software which comes on the CD to convert their videos, because first the software is too difficult for them, the other reason is that it takes time to convert the videos to formats supported by the frame and that means that all benefits from using a frame over a PC are gone. I'm working on a Mac Pro desktop. I'm in the LR2 develop module. I right-click on an image to 'edit in CS3'. No problem, the image opens up in CS3. I work on the image, then save and close the image. Here's the problem: After saving and closing the image, I go back to LR2, and the new edited image (saved as a tiff) is not visible in Lightroom!
And no, it isn't 'stacked' behind the original - it's just not visible - like it wasn't even there. I know it's there because I can see the tiff file right there using the Mac Finder. Where did the image go and how do I get my saved edits to automatically be visible in LR2? I would like to revisit the problem of LR2's slow generation/regeneration of thumbnails discussed in earlier threads, including this one: With an optimized catalog, freshly deleted/regenerated standard (2048) previews and my LR2 and image folders excluded from indexing, it took me nearly 30 seconds for the develop settings to be applied to the thumbnail, the thumbnail badges to appear and the '.' To go away for each group of images I had on screen. In the end I just went to All Photographs and scrolled through the 10,500 (mostly Sony A100/A700/A350.ARWs, Panasonic LX2.RAW+Jpegs and Canon G9.CR2s with a few dozen Jpeg's and two Tiff's created in Photomatrix Pro 3).
The first time through it took me more than 100 minutes to do this. Afterwards LR2 settled down and behaved more like LR1.4.1's Library module. That is it settled down until I changed my Camera Calibration settings to Adobe Standard beta 1 for all my RAW images.
Now its back to around 30 seconds for the '.' I think I followed the proper procedure for setting the Camera Calibration: I selected the camera model from the library filter, changed the Camera Calibration to 'Adobe Standard beta 1', made that the default for the camera model, and then synchronized the images already in the library with 'calibration' the only box checked.
This is on a pretty fast machine- Vista 64 bit, Intel Core2 Quad Q9550 (2.83GHZ) processor, GeForce 8500 GT graphics card, 8GB of DDR2 800MHZ RAM, and two SATA 300 7200RPM hard drives (not in RAID 0, but with the images and LR2 Catalog on a separate drive from the system drive. All this makes me wonder if LR2 doesn't have to do a lot more work assigning Camera Calibration (even if the calibration is the default ACR 4.4) than LR1.4.1. I just bought a MacBook Pro for photo editing. I have the original disk for LR2 which I had installed on a Windows machine; I purchased the LR3 upgrade download from Adobe Store to also run on that Windows machine. This downloaded file is saved on that Windows computer as a.exe file.
When I tried to use it on the new Mac, the Mac OS doesn't recognize it. I went to the Adobe store to download it again, maybe in Mac version, but the 'Win/Mac' English version shows 'not applicable' However, 'Mac multiple languages looks like it can be downloaded. Do I need to install LR2 from the original disk, then down load the upgrade while on the Mac? Thanks for your help. Hi, just to the side of this forum thread is a link that answered my question. Basically, on your Mac, go to the Adobe Store and download the full trial version of LR3 for Mac.
It shows up as a dmg file. Install it and you put in your SN for your previously purchased LR3 upgrade; another box will then appear asking for your original LR purchase SN, since this is an upgrade. Put those numbers in and BAM! Worked for me! Thanks for those that responded with help.

It seems that all non standard characters used in metadata (on my system) get translated wrong when I use 'Edit i photoshop' or 'Edit as smart object', 'Merge to HDR/Panorama'. The metadata is 100% correct when opened using Bridge, LR1.4.1 and also when setting CS3 up as secondary editor in LR2 and use that. Example: 'Le Rhne' is changed to 'Le Rhne'.

Hitting Escape key in Crop mode, sometimes applies crop instead of cancelling it. Steps to reproduce: 1.
Make a collection with two uncropped images and make it active. Go to Crop mode in Develop. Crop the first image 4. Use the Ctrl+Arrow to move to the next image without leaving Crop mode. Now the second image is in crop mode, but no areas have been cropped yet. Hit Esc on your keyboard. Result: Second image is cropped just like the first image.
Expected result: Second image remains uncropped. LR2 worked fine. Bug report submitted. Hitting Escape key in Crop mode, sometimes applies crop instead of cancelling it. Steps to reproduce: 1. Make a collection with two uncropped images and make it active.

Hello, I've just started working with DNG files exported as Smart Object from LR2 to PSCS3 and I would appreciate some feedback on my experiences thus far. Let us assume that I've made basic corrections to _DSC1190.dng within LR2. I then want to apply a filter to a particular region of the DNG file with all of my LR2 adjustments applied. Here are the steps I currently follow: 1.1. Right-click on the DNG file and select 'Edit In'-'Open as Smart Object in Photoshop.'
This results (I believe) in the DNG file with all of my LR2 changes being embedded within a smart object and the resulting temporary file being opened within PSCS3. I perform my edits in PSCS3 and save the file as a PSD (i.e. As long as I was smart about things, I can now go back at any time and alter any of the changes I made in PSCS3, as well as access the DNG file within the smart object to make and ACR changes I desire. If I want the new PSD file to be added to my LR2 catalog, I then need to navigate to where it was saved and manually add it.
If I want to make any exposure adjustments, or really, any adjustments that I'd normally make within LR2 or ACR to _DSC1190.psd, I need to open the file within PSCS3, double click on the smart object to get the ACR dialog, make my changes, and voila!, the PSD composite now reflects those changes. If I make any changes within LR2 to the original DNG file (i.e. _DSC1190.dng), those changes are *not* reflected within the PSD file. Questions 1.6.1.
Is what I've described the expected behavior? Although it might seem silly to some, and may present a technical challenge not worth the trouble, it seems it would be beneficial to have the smart object exported from within LR2 to PSCS3, contain a link to the original DNG file, and not now have two separate DNG files, one visible to the file system, and the other embedded within the smart object saved as presumably a PSD. I'm sure there are a lot of corner cases to consider, but it just seems very strange to now have two files wherein if you want to change something you would normally do through LR2 or ACR, you now have to do it in two different programs to two different files. Is this a problem Adobe has considered, i.e.
Any discussion about supporting this perhaps in an update to LR2 along with PSCS3/4? Thanks much for any help/insight, Matt. After applying [the photoalbum fix some users still cannot display the photopage in Firefox 3. While doodling with the albums in Firefox, I noticed that sometimes the albums display correctly and sometimes not. After some trial and error I found that objects placed on the page were the problem.
Firefox displayed the page without objects (textbox and images) and did not display the page with objects. But not all the time. So after some more testing I found that a page with *objects with borders* did not display the photos.
When you remove the border in the Inspector the photos will display. [I prepared 2 pages. Page 1 displays correctly. Page 2 does not display correctly in Firefox. Both pages have an image object and a textbox above the photo area. On page 2 the image object has a border.
Page 2 has a textbox with a color fill background. Firefox will not display the photos on the page with the bordered image object.
It won't display the border anyway. A photoframe will also hide the photos. When you use a photoframe for the photos in the album, the error does not occur. So it only affects objects you add to the page. By removing borders around objects the problem is solved for the time being. Please check if this applies to your pages.
Or: LR3 shows everything dull and to light. I've upload an image and described my problem her: But here it is: I'm having some color and curve problems with my exports, it all looks to dark and to saturated when I export from Lightroom 3. So I'm trying to figure out what's happening. Here's the setup: Windows XP Nvidia 8600GT graphics card One Dell 2407WFPHC screen One Dell 2408WFP screen (my main) Huey Pro color calibration kit (software version 1.51) Everything calibrated. It looks good to me when I import in lightroom (from raw from Pentax K20D, and Panasonic LX3) Exporting to jpeg (sRGB) or tiff and viewing in anything else the colors are darker and over-saturated (tried in firefox (profile aware), Internet Explorer, irfanview and chrome). Loading the jpeg into Lightroom and comparing it to the RAW, they look the same (not dark or over-saturated).
What you see above is a screen grab, of a test chart viewed in Lightroom and IrfanView. They where just imported/loaded - nothing was done. No development settings are applied as part of my LR3 import. The colors in lightroom 3 are dull compared to the IrfanView. Sample rgb values: 1 red: Lightroom 224,52,27 (not that pure) Irfanview 254,0,0 (~pure red) 4 purple: Lightroom: 124,1,251 irfanview: 131,0,254 9 green: lightroom: 126,255,54 (far from pure green) irfanview: 0,255,3 (pure green) The red and the green are the worst - a lot more 'energy' in them. So imagine the reverse process.
I've a photo in Lightroom and it looks good to me. I export it and every 126,255,54 gets made into pure green. Darker and over-saturated! I've no idea what's happning or what to do about it.
I've tried everything I can think about. I don't really think I had this issue with LR2 - not enough to notice anyway. So in my case it seems I'm better off running uncalibrated as that seems to produce something more natural across the board than when I use calibration and it goes between extremes, fine or totally wrong.
I can see the images fine on my controlled environment but if you're distributing online then things don't work out at all! This is a very common misconception. Needless to say it is wrong. The only way you can get reasonable colors on everybody else's monitors is to calibrate your display and only trust color managed apps.
If you don't calibrate and don't use color managed apps, your output will basically be completely random. At least with calibration and management you will be targeting the standard (sRGB) that most monitors cluster around (that's what they were designed to), so while individual monitors will be more or less random, on average they will show what you intended. If you don't calibrate and manage you will target only your specific monitor. Since this is a wide gamut display, the average viewer (who doesn't calibrate nor color manage) will see a dull desaturated image with respect to what you see. Bottom line: If you use a wide gamut monitor, calibrate and only trust color managed apps. If you have a normal gamut monitor, calibrate and trust color managed apps the most, but non managed apps will be OK if you use sRGB as your export space.
You cannot do away with the calibration step if you care about what others will see. MacBook Pro 13' 2.26 intel processor, 2 gb ram, OS 10.6.2.brand new - right out of the box.
Lightroom 2 bought from Adobe about a year ago which installed on my iMac 10.5.8 no problem. Upon using LR 2 installer, going through the normal steps, Installation Fails on new laptop.

Apple's iWork loaded and is working fine. Lots of room on the hard drive.
Can anyone help? Is processor to small to run LR2? Like most people on this site, I have been having unacceptable performance problems with LR2. I tried some of the changes that have been thrown around. Here are my observations. First, I am running Windows xp. I have 1.25 GB of memory.

Dave, I've read that link before in the past but it seems to contradict clause 5 of the EULA. Upgrades extend the same license, yes.
You cannot sell the previous version from which you upgraded. But you can USE the prior version as well as the update. If the Software is an Update to a prior version of Adobe software (the Prior Version), then Customers use of this Update is conditional upon its retention of the Prior Version. Therefore, if Customer validly transfers this Update pursuant to Section 4.6, the Customer must transfer the Prior Version along with it. If Customer wishes to use this Update in addition to the Prior Version, then Customer may only do so on the same Computer on which it has installed and is using the Prior Version. Any obligations that Adobe may have to support Prior Versions during the License Term may end upon the availability of this Update.
No other use of the Update is permitted. Additional Updates may be licensed to Customer by Adobe with additional or different terms.' My reading of the 3rd sentence is that prior versions can be used provided they are used on the same computer on which the update is installed.
IIRC, the former wording of the EULA did extinguish rights to use prior versions. I believe the wording was changed. Does the wording of the link need changing too? If you did any of the things that I mentioned in my earlier post: In your OS navigate to the location of your LR2 catalog - wherever it is and under whatever name it has now - it is the folder / file with the extension.lrcat. Make sure that you have set your OS to display the file extensions. If the file extensions are not displayed: in Win Explorer go to Tools Folder Options View Tab and Un-check the box Hide extensions for known file tyes - then the extension.lrcat will be displayed.
If you're on a Mac there must be a corresponding menu. When you have found the.lrcat file just double-click it and LR will open with this catalog. WW Message was edited by: web-weaver.

I have finally fixed my slow performance issues with LR2! Today I did a bit of playing around with different performance settings. I'm using LR2 on a HP Pavillion 6258se Laptop. It has an 80GB Hard Drive, 2GB of Ram and the processor is a 1.8 GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core. I had Windows Vista installed months ago but I downgraded back to XP due to Vista issues.
First I opened the windows task manager so I could monitor the performance of Windows while using LR2. I noticed when using the develop tasks the performance stayed around 50%.
When I used the retouch brush tools the performance still stayed around 50% but the brush tools were still slow. The more I brushed on the image the slower the brush refresh became. This told me that there must be a video performance issue and not necessarily a processor problem.
Here's how I fixed the problem. I right clicked on the desktop and clicked NVidia Display/Laptop Dispay. Clicked on the Performance and Quality Settings 3. Under Active profile Click Global Driver Settings. Under Global driver Setting click in the dropdown view advanced settings. Changed the following settings: Images setting = High Performance Force mipmaps = None Trilinear Optimization = Off Anisotropic mip filter optimization = Off Anisotropic sample optimization = Off Triple Buffer = Off Without even restarting LR2, the brush tools worked with no lag or delay no matter how much I brushed on the image! They were just as fast as using the sliders in the develop module!
I hope this works other Nvidia users having similar issues!! I'm using LR2.2 on Mac 10.5.6, MacBook Pro dual 2.16, 2GB. Ever since upgrading LR to 2.0, The performance has taken a serious dive. Aside from the usual speed checks during actual use (switching from grid to develop can be measured on a calendar), My copy of LR2 will cause the CPUs to spike in a rather sustained way, when the app is otherwise idle (no previews or anything being rebuilt) and once I've completely left it alone. This will happen for up to 5 minutes, maybe longer.
All the fans come on and the rest of the OS is more or less unresponsive. A couple links showing Activity Monitor and LR's system info: This was captured about 4 minutes after having exported a single JPEG and the computer was otherwise idle.
Note that LR2 was referred to by the Activity Monitor as '(null)'. The range of CPU percentage was from 105% to 190%, mostly in the upper 30 percent. I recently uninstalled LR2.2 in an effort to get rid of any lingering LR1 or LR2 beta crud. I freshly installed LR2.2 but so far, I'm seeing no change.
What on earth is LR doing? I have thought of completely rebuilding the OS on the MBP and 'starting over' despite the hell that that implies. Even though the activity monitor doesn't show any other offenders, I can't help but think there's too much junk in my Library and System folders.
