Lightroom :: Lost Keywords After (re)installing From External Harddisk

Nov 14, 2011

Last weekend, I formatted my PC HD and installed Windows 7 64 bit (previously installed was Vista). A human error was - perhaps - making sure that my backup of AppData was successful. However, my picture folder was on an EHD, and I suppose I would be saved anyway. I ran the import function from my EHD to LR3 (latest version), and everything went just find, except that my keywords were missing. Strange thing though, is that my lists of keywords and keyword suggestions were complete, but not connected to the photos (except for 1!!)So my question is, is there something I have missed (apart from my AppData folder) that could be fixed, or will I have to start re-tagging (keywording that is, metadata like dates etc. were imported as well)?

Lightroom :: Lost A Big Chunk Of Keywords

Dec 29, 2013

I am running LR4. I was using LR and installed LR4 in its entirerity not as an upgrade. However, I deleted some folders using LR. However, I noticed that a fairly large amount of keywords are missing. The interesting thing that some of the missing keywords were between a large group of folders that the keywords remained intact.
For example, 2013_01_02 thru 2013_09 keywords included, then 2013_08_12 thru 2013_11 key were are missing.
Is there anyway that I can recoup the keyword from the back up files? If so, how do I go about it.

Lightroom :: Importing From External HD - Will Keywords And Captions Show Up?

Jan 24, 2013

Having a D100 camera and keywords filled out in Nikon View IPTC... would importing into Lightroom show up my keywords and captions?  I neglected to add that I would not be importing them from my computer HD, but from a external HD. All my past work was done on a Gateway PC.  Lightroom will probably be put on a new Mac.  I also have all these photos archived on CDs. Will this change things?  Will my keywords and captions still show up upon import?  If importing from an external HD blocks this, what can I do, what program can I add that will get my metadata across?

Lightroom :: All Develop Settings Are Lost After Moving Catalogue To External HDD

Dec 27, 2011

After my internal HDD became full with over 30,000 DNGs, I moved all my photos along with the catalogue to my external drive. Now when I open LR, not only do I have to reimport the catalogue every time, but all my develop settings are gone! Hundreds of hours down the drain. Why has this happened, and is there any way I can retrieve them? I'm using v3.4.

Lightroom :: Connection To New Destination Lost - Photo Files Transferred To External Drive

Oct 2, 2012

Since transferring my photo files from my hard drive to an external drive(without telling lightroom) I have completely lost all connections between lightroom and the new destination (my external drive). There is no sign of anything at all in Lightroom. It shows 0 photos, my preferences seem gone, and it is as though I have just loaded up lightroom for the very first time. Do I need to start from scratch and reimport my photos or is there some way I can retreive/reconnect the photos so I have the edits I have already made?

Lightroom :: Internal Error - Assertion Failed When Publishing To Harddisk

Oct 3, 2011

After upgrading to 3.5 from 3.4.1 I received this error when attempting to publish new photos to my harddisk. First I thought the problem may be related to access rights. I am running Win7, 64 bit. So I reset the read/write rights in the export folder and the LR catalogue and AppData folders. No success. Then I opened a new cataloge and imported the old one in order to start "from scratch" - no success, publishing collections were not importet. Finally I switched back to version 3.4.1, and ... it works again

Lightroom :: Lost Adjustments When Move Images From Hard Drive To External Drive

Mar 1, 2012

I moved images from my harddrive to an external drive.

I opened Lightroom.

Noticed there was a question mark by the photo folder I needed.

I synchronized the folders. Nada.

I rememebered I moved the images (first line ^^)

I re-imported the images from the external drive into Lightroom.

These images (other than one that was marked previously with a blue label) look completely untouched - completely original files - even though I spent hours working on them.

I am glad the images weren't deleted BUT re-doing 600 images will be a MAJOR FAIL if I can't figure out how to import the images with the settings / developments I did beforehand.

Lightroom :: How To Select Multiple Keywords To Add To Images Without Keywords Collection

Aug 1, 2012

Lightroom has a collection containing all images without keywords.

As soon as I apply a keyword to images they instantly disappear from the collection. This is alright when I only want to apply a single keyword, but how do I stop it happening when I want to apply multiple keywords to the same image(s)?

Photoshop :: Installing From External Hard Drive

Mar 21, 2009

My Dell laptop crashed about a year ago, and I was able to have the hard drive backed up to an external. I now need my PhotoShop CS which is on the external hard drive. I need to know how to install PhotoShop, and others in the creative suite, from the external drive. I am having a problem figuring out which files need to be installed first, i.e. .exe and .dll files.

The hard drive is an iMicro 3.5" SATA and IDE HDD

I am currently running Windows Vista, Gateway Notebook
**I can not find the original Creative Suite cds; I think they may have been "accidentally" thrown away by someone other than myself.

Lightroom :: Where Have Keywords Gone

Mar 3, 2013

I have just installed a new computer when my old one died.  I had everything backed up and have managed to successfully restore my lightroom catalogue.
I can see all my photos and all the adjustment history and I can see my library of keywords.  However, none of my photos show the key words that I previously assigned to them. 
I am not sure whether there is a file that I need to restore from the backup somewhere.

Lightroom :: PSE10 Keywords In 4?

Mar 8, 2012

I am very happy with some 200 keywords that I use in PSE10 under Win7/64 on over 20k images.  Is it possible, in LR4, to pick up files with keywords written to metadata, and work with them in LR4 (selection, editing, etc.) WITHOUT damaging or "upgrading" the PSE10 catalog?  If yes, could PSE10 pick up keywored changes made in LR4?  
Or do you have to commit to one program or the other?

Lightroom :: How Keywords Got Scrambled

Dec 20, 2012

Some how my keywords got scrambled. The first thing I'd like to do is move a keyword from its new (incorrect) location as a sub-keyword back to being a parent keyword of a hierarchy. I have tried dragging and dropping it but it immediately returns to its incorrect location. I considered creating a new keyword as a parent keyword (the same word), then open the images linked to the misplaced keyword and drag all the images to the newly created parent keyword. Then empty and delete the misplaced sub-keyword. But...I fear loosing links to collections, vitual copies, etc. for all the images. best method for returning the keywords to their original placement in the hierachy.

Lightroom :: How To Import Jpg In LR5 (cc) Without Keywords

Mar 17, 2014

When I import jpg photos Lightroom automatically also imports all keywords. How can I stop this? The reason I don't want them is that I actually want to re-do all of my keywords/imports. I know it's a big pain, but I feel that it needs to be done, as I've learned how to do things more properly (in theory).

Lightroom :: Exporting Keywords In V5?

Nov 5, 2013

I recently converted from Lightroom 4 to 5.  I just noticed that not all my keywords are exported to my jpeg file.  For example I have the following keywords in Lightroom; Horizontal, Landscape, National Forest, Scenic.  My exported jpeg has only the keyword Landscape.
In the Library Module, when I click on the dropdown Keyword Tags and select "Will Export", I only see the keyword Landscape.  I'm not sure what this "feature" is all about. I need to be able to export all keywords.
This problem seems to be consistent and I have a test file set up so I can repeat the problem.  Only certain keywords are not exported.

Lightroom :: Maintaining Keywords In PC To Mac Conversion

Feb 13, 2013

I recently converted from PC to Mac; downloaded and installed LR4, and it quickly recognized my photos and photo folder structure.  Also, apparently each individual keyword has been imported.  However, 3 problems:
1. no photos have keywords assigned to them
2. the keyword nested structure (keywords within other keywords) did not transfer, so they are all listed alphabetically
3. I don't see any history on the edited photos, so am not sure if I have originals (unedited) or edited.  If I have edited photos, can I go back and re-edit (non-destructive editing in LR)?

Lightroom :: Searching Based On Two Keywords?

I always click on the arrow next to a certain keyword in order to filter my photo results down to just that keyword. How can I search for images based on two keywords? So maybe I want to search for all images of keyword "Bob" with his dog keyword "Charlie." When I click on the second arrow it deselects the first one.
