1  Software Discussions / Lightroom / Keywords all messed up on: February 23, 2011, 06:09:44 PM
I recently started using Lightroom(LR3) for the first time after years of using Bridge. I imported about 20,000 images and I thought all was well. Yesterday I noticed that my keyword structure is all wrong. I would guess at least 50% of my chld keywords no longer fall under the parent keyword. I don't understand why that happened. I thought Adobe finally got keywords between Bridge and LR to be compatable. Anyway I was hoping that I could just choose a misplaced keyword, show all of the files using it, and then drag/drop the keyword to where it should be. That doesn't work. I see no way to move a keyword built into LR3. Is there a method to move keywords? I'm using Windows7. It also seems to have included the parent keywords as a keyword and I don't want that. Is there a way to disable using parent keywords like there is in Bridge?

Thanks,
Mike

John,

That worked. If this is a issue with LR, I'm surprised others haven't run into this before.

Thanks,
Mike

The error message says it's an unsupported bit depth.

I'm new to LR having just loaded it onto my pc and imported my first catalog of over 16,000 photos. I was surprised to see that it would not import my 32bit hdr files which I've created and saved using Photomatix. I have two questions, first, is there a way to get LR3 to import 32b files? Second, do people save their 32b hdr files or do you just save 16b versions? I've always saved the 32b files so that I could go back and tweak them if needed.

5  DAM Stuff / Backup Strategies and Tools / Re: Acronis True Image Home 2010 on: November 02, 2009, 11:16:56 PM
I'm on XP and likely will be for awhile unless MS simplifies the upgrade path to win7 but that's another topic. I thought of buying 2009 since I really don't need the new features in 2010. The Farstone DriveClone Pro also looks like it would do the job but it doesn't seem to be widely used. I guess the best thing would be trial versions of both but I'm not sure I've got the time. I think I'll avoid TI2010 for now though.

Peter,

I took a look at the SuperDuper site and it says it's for Mac. The site says "built by Mac users, for Mac users". Any other suggestions for pc's? The new version of Acronis True Image appears to be very buggy based on most reviews so far.

I know that a lot of people use True Image for their backups and disk cloning. I was planning to buy TI2009 when I saw that 2010 would be out soon. Now that it is out most of the reviews have been pretty bad - a lot of crashes and dead pc's. Has anyone bought and used 2010 yet? If so, what have your experiences been so far? I'm still on XP and I think that's were most of the problems lie. Is acronis good at updating the software with bug fixes? I'm  not sure if I want to buy 2010 or go with 2009 which seems to be more stable. Anyone ever try using Farstone DriveClone home or pro?

Louie,
Yeah, I agree it is slow and painful. I haven't tried EM2 since I haven't upgraded from EM1. From what I've seen with Bridge is that it initially appears to write all of the keywords. It's only when I go back to the folder/files at a later point that I see that they aren't all there. I don't have to quit out of Bridge to see this happen.

9  Software Discussions / Bridge/ Camera Raw / Losing Keywords in Bridge CS4 on: January 16, 2009, 11:21:37 PM
Ever since I started using Bridge in CS4, I see that Bridge does not always write keywords for me. This happens when I select more than 1 keyword before the first keyword is completed. If I add a keyword, wait until it's done, then add another ond so one I'm ok. Has anyone else had this problem and know a fix?

Thanks,
Mike

Peter,

I upgraded to CS4. It's better but there's still a dependancy on file size. To write 1 keyword for a 110M .pds file it now takes about 7-8sec vs. 27-28sec before. A 90K .jpg takes about 1sec for 1 keyword. I hope it doesn't get slower as time goes on!
Thanks for your help.

Peter,

Resaving the file doesn't help either.

Peter,

I think I did that already. I took the same folder with the mixed files and made copies on my c: & e: drives and also put it on my laptop. In all 3 cases it took about 27sec to add one keyword. I also took one folder with only .NEF's and copied it on my c: and e: drives. In both cases it took about 1sec to write 1 keyword. I'll try resaving the files tonight.

OK, I moved a folder to my c: drive and it had 4 psd's(3-114K, 1-200K - all 16b), 1 tiff(114K), and 2 jpgs(150K and 35K). It took 27 sec to write 1 keyword. I moved a folder to my e: with 8 nef's(19.3K ea.). It took about 1sec to write 1 keyword. So, there's no dependancy on which drive has the files. I moved the same mixed folder without the cache files to my laptop and it took 28sec for 1 keyword so no change there. It appears to be file size related. The larger the file, the longer it takes to write the keyword. Should it be this way? Any idea if CS4 would be faster? I guess I could finally switch to using EM for keywords but I like the hierarchy of Bridge keywords.

Peter,

I've got 3 internal drives in my computer. The files I'm working on are on my "e" drive which is where I keep all of my processed images. When I tried my .NEF experiment last night, those were on my "c" drive. I'll have to try and move a folder from e: to c: and vice-versa to see if that changes things. I've already had one of my original 3 drives die after less than 6 months so maybe one more is on it's way out. I doubt it's a defrag problem on e: since the files were all loaded initially in one shot when I got the computer. I'll verify that too.

Peter,

Another interesting thing I just found. If I work on folders with only .NEF files, I can add keywords and my copyright info very quickly. The slowness comes in when I'm working on folders with .psd, .jpg, .tiff files which were scanned in from slides.
I'm not sure why that would matter.

Mike
