Lightroom: Catalog - robusten the integrity checker and add repair capability.

Presently, backup does integrity check and optimization, but more slips through the net than if you do an import-from-catalog. The problem is that often catalog problems get backed up for weeks or months before a problem is detected. So, this 'Idea' is to have a more rigorous check of catalog inte

Cloud backup from within Lightroom (Adobe managed)

How about the option to resize my RAW files (smaller) and upload them to the cloud during (or after) the import procedure directly within Lightroom? Why not have the ability to export a catalog with smart previews to the Cloud from within Lightroom too? I would pay a few extra bucks for the conven

Lightroom 4 has stopped saving changes to catalog

This started happening sporadically, then once every two times I launched Lightroom, and now it's happening all the time. I will open up Lightroom, import photos, tag them, classify them, edit them, etc. When I exit LR I have it setup to always make a backup and to verify the catalog's integrity -

LiGHTROOM: Separate subdirectories for previews of different sizes

I back up my Lightroom catalog including previews. I'd love to never back up any 1:1 previews, but right now there's no good way to differentiate them from the others because they're all mixed together in the same previews directory. If Lightroom stored 1:1 previews in a separate subdirectory I coul

Lightroom: Display a warning when Lightroom decides to change the backup location.

If the current backup location is off-line for some reason on exit, then Lightroom will "decide" to revert the backup location to be with the catalogue on the main drive - without explicitly warning the user. If this goes unnoticed then going forward Lightroom will continue to use the main drive

Lightroom: More options and worfkflow for the backup files

I love the option to "make a second copy" during import, but it would be great if we had options to remove, rename or otherwise manage those backup files automatically from the Lightroom interface. I'm tired of constantly having to manage my backup hard drive and Lightroom separately.

Modify date for photoshop droplets

When I save a Droplet ("File : Automate : Create Droplet..." menu item) the droplet is always created with a create date and a modify date of "Sunday, June 16, 2013 at 17:01". Is there something special about that date? Does Adobe want to make my backups incorrect for a reason? What is going on?

LIghtroom 4: Date Modified on raw file is updated when saving first keyword for image

I have found a condition where Lightroom will change the file system "Date Modified" on a raw file when you add the very first keyword for an image. This happens both when using the Save command (Cmd-S/ Ctl-S) and if you have "Automatically write changes to xmp" turned on. Once the first keyword is

Lightroom Classic: Ability to backup without exiting and naming them descriptively

I wish there was a way to backup the catalog without having to close LR. Also, a way to name it so that I know what it was for. Currently, I have to close LR, go to the backup, create a subfolder with a descriptive name, and then move the backup into the folder.
