Lightroom: LR5.2 flickr publish causes all photo collections to only show the flickr set being published

Just updated Lightroom to 5.2. When I publish photos to flickr, then click back to a different collection, the photos shown in the grid are photos from the flickr set being published instead. This happens every time I publish to flickr. Occasionally, photos in other collections disappear instead, once I begin publishing.

Hi All,

This issue has been fixed in the Lightroom 5.3 Public RC, which can be downloaded here:

http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/li...

If the 5.3 Public RC does not fix the issue for you, please let me know.

Thanks,
Ben

My original problem was merged with this one. I have updated to 5.3 which has fixed the issue caused by minimised publish sections. It hasn't fixed the other issue I reported which was that if you have a publish service with only one folder in it you cannot get back to the folder after you click in another publish service folder.

I have two publish services with only one folder in each of them. I have other publish services with multiple folders. If I click the single folder to view the pictures in that publish service all is fine. I then click in a folder in another publish service I am shown the photos in the newly clicked folder. The first folder remains highlighted in a light grey and if I click on it the grid of photos doesn't change. If I click on another folder in another publish service all previous last selected folders in each publish service remain grey. I can switch between folders as long as there is more than one in each publish service.

I'm happy to do a screen capture video if my rambling isn't clear.

Hi Paul,

A screen capture video would be very helpful, thank you!

Hi Ben,

I haven't had the problem for a couple of days but it came back this morning so I did a screen capture video using quicktime. I don't think it recorded sound but you can see me clicking on publish folders in different publish services. Selected folders in one service don't lose their pale grey selected state when I click on a folder in another service. Only if I click on another folder in the same service will the previous selected folder "deselect" and the grid of thumbnails change. I don't recall the sequence of events before this issue occurs, sorry!

Hope this helps

Hi Paul,

I see what you mean. It looks like within each publish service, any collection you click on remains in some weird quasi-selected state until you click on another collection within the same service. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to reproduce this problem myself yet. If it happens again, and you know what you did to get into the state in the first place, let me know. Out of curiosity, if you quit and relaunch, does this problem go away?

Thanks,
Ben

Hi Ben,

Quitting and relaunching clears the problem. I'm really not sure how it started but if I stumble on it again I'll let you know.

Thanks

Paul

I have exactly the same problem.... HELP PLEASE.
Is there a possibility to go back to Lightroom 5 until they have fixed this problem.

This is not just a flickr publish problem. This happens when working with ANY Publish Collection. I have the same problem when working with the Photoshelter Publish Collection.

I've heard that there were bugs with the Publish Collection since 5.0. But something changed in 5.2 to make any use of the Publish Collection basically trap you in that collection. There is no returning to the main gallery short of closing the program and restarting. I have been using Lightroom since the version 1 beta, so I am very familiar with its use, and I have not had such an adverse usability issue like this until this update to 5.2.

I am getting by in the mean time by trying to do most of my work in the main galleries/collections before publishing photos. If there is a need to return to my other photos, I have to close Lightroom and reopen. A restart does get things back to normal, but be very careful working on photos once you have clicked on one of your publish collections and try to switch back: you may not be working on the photo that you think you are!

I'm hearing a few similar reports, but I haven't been able to reproduce it myself yet. Which OS are you all using?

Grid view not updated when I change folder/collection.


After installing LR 5.2 I have found that LR tend to not update the content of the grid view when I switch folder or collection or apply filter. Switching to Develop module and back does not help - I actually have to restart LR

Exactly what I experience too. Restarting L5 is what I do as well.

It is all the same problem. I am using a MacBookPro with 10.8.2. Mountain Lion.
And Victoria.... be glad that you haven't been able to reproduce it.... it scared me..... I thought all my pictures were in one big folder (all 26.000 of them) because doing a search on whatever criteria doesn't work either. The only thing to do it shutting down and hope for the best.....

I really hope Adobe can fix this asap, because I use published smart collections quite a bit so LR 5.2 is close to useless now :(

I've worked with one user who after updating to 5.2 this was resolved by resetting the preferences in LR.

Can some of you experiencing this try resetting the LR preferences to see if that helps out?

Help: after following the instructions and deleting the plist file I Choose a Different Catalog button fine but then only have the option to Upgrade that catalogue. I thought I could just open it as the instructions suggest. I am a little scared to upgrade it but have no other option. Please advise (quickly if possible).

Don't upgrade - you're looking at the wrong catalog. Look for one, probably in the same location with the same name, but with a -2 on the end.

NB I have Cannot seem to make the resetting in preferences work. I select my current catalog but it always wants me to upgrade.

Apologies: I can now confirm that this fix works (for me). I found my 2013-2 catalog and voila. Thanks to Victoria Bampton too.

Can you let us know how many photos are in the collections you're publishing? We're wondering whether collection size is a factor. And does it straighten out if you quit and relaunch?

I tested going into a publish smart collection with only 5 photos. The problem occurs even if I don't try to publish. I just look at the photos in the collection and then the problems starts to happen. If I double click on a photo in the collection, at totaly different photo is displayed in loupe view. Also the metadata in the right panel shows data for yet another photo.

Restarting LR helps, but only until a pubilshed smart collection is used in any way.

I am publishing about 20-30 photo's at the time (this time) and everything seems to be okay once you relaunch LR. But as soon as you try to publish again.......

Lightroom 5.2: Image browser gets stuck after selecting a publish collection.


This is 100% reproducible for me (OS X 10.8.5 on a 2013 Retina MacBook Pro).

1. Select a publish collection with a bunch of unpublished photos, in my case a smart collection with 950 of them under the SmugMug publish service. The grid view switches to the list of photos in that collection as expected.

2. Select another collection. It can be a special collection like "Previous Import" or a regular one or a smart one, doesn't matter.

The grid view continues to show the photos in the publish collection, not the photos in the newly-selected collection. Restarting Lightroom is, as far as I've found, the only way to fix the issue.
