Photoshop Elements: Image dates changed

I am very disappointed in this syncing of albums online and on my desktop. At first they synced, but now they no longer do it. Second, many if not most of the pictures have lost their original dates - the ones I meticulously applied to my photos in the organizer. What is the point of sharing your a

Lightroom "synchronize folder" does not terminate and takes a lot of CPU.

Right-click on Pictures and chose Synchronize folder. Pictures folder contains 17,000 files and is on an external hard drive. Speed is not the issue: tested speed; write speed is more than 65Mo/sec, read speed is higher - more than 100Mo/sec. The external disk was on a NTFS file system initially.

Lightroom 5.6: Re-imports previously imported folders but changes names to lower case letters.

When synchronizing folders that have upper case letters in them, Lightroom will occasionally decide that all the previously imported images in that folder are now missing, but wants to import them again in a different folder that is named exactly the same as the old folder, but with lower case lette

Automatically Sync ALL Lightroom Files from Catalog to Catalog

It would be great if Lightroom catalog preferences also has a method to create a new catalog with all the presets, preferences, of the current Master. For persons with multiple computers, the ability to keep the presets/preferences with the catalog is great, EXCEPT when you create a new one then it

Lightroom: Synchronize Presets and Settings using Creative Cloud

I'm a Creative Cloud subscriber and often switch between my workstation and my laptop. It would be great if the settings and presets managed in Adobe Lightroom would be automatically synchronized between all devices connected to the same Creative Cloud account.

Lightroom doesn't recognize metadata updates

In Lightroom 5.0 I am seeing the following behavior. I go to a folder of images in Lightroom. I then change the metadata in the files using an external program (I use exiftool to set the "title" field of the images). I then right click on the folder and choose "Synchronize Folder..." and choose "Sc

Lightroom 5 not syncing settings to all selected images

If I set an exposure value on one image, select all, then Sync..., choosing just exposure, sometimes 1-2 images in that set (of maybe 140-150 images) does not get that exposure value applied. (LR5 on Windows 7 x64 SP1, 8GB RAM, Core i7 K2600)

Lightroom: Auto import without moving to a destination folder

May I propose a feature request for Lightroom to modify the behaviour of the 'Auto Import' function to make it more flexible.

Lightroom: Synchronize Folder broken for JPGs in LR 3.4

In LR 3.4, if a folder has JPGs mixed with other files, "Synchronize Folder" incorrectly reports the JPG files as missing, and offers to "Revove missing photos from catalog." This does NOT appear to happen if I attempt to synchronize a folder which ONLY has JPGs in it. I'm running on Windows Vista

Lightroom: synchronize folder should match missing files with found files

When synchronizing a folder, if it finds photos to import and photos that are missing, it should check to see if they are the same ones and just update the location. I'm assuming lightroom is already doing the check to see if they are already in the catalog for the import process so it'd be very e

In the Develop module, if I make a change (for example, set White Clipping to 30), then select a large number of photos and use Sync to apply the change to all of them, it applies to about the next 10-20 images and not the ones after that. This has happened in many different catalogs and with many
