Yes, you can have Lightroom write the changes automatically. To set it up go to Lightroom>catalog settings>metadata>automatically write changes to XMP

Hope you have a great day!

Thank you Roelof - can Lightroom be set to do this automatically?

Go to the Library module Metadata menu and choose “Update DNG Previews &
Metadata.” This rebuilds the JPEG previews that are contained within the DNG

Hi - absolute beginner with Lightroom - I'm using v5.3, and would like to know whether the embedded full-size dng previews accurately reflect any changes made (as iView used to do).

Solved the first question (idiotically simple, just needed to be much more precise when clicking) but still can't make the folders change colour when set to auto update - any thoughts?

Similar problem (also on a Mac), but this time it's the divider below the catalog sets window that won't move, whatever I do. Tried your solution but unfortunately it doesn't help

Hi - just installed EM2 on a new Mac after years of happily using IVMP. 2 questions - I seem to be unable to move the 'hierarchical keywords' divider downwards - it's stuck at the top so that I can barely see the 'catalog fields'. Next, I can't change the colour of folders and sub-folders set to auto-update, as could be done in IVMP, so there seems to be no way of confirming whether they are updating. Has anyone else come across these problems and found a solution?

Hi everybody. So far, I've found that Dr Brown's Image Processor Pro is the most convenient way to resize a folder full of images (to create web sized JPGs, for example).

I say most convenient, however on my system Image Processor Pro won't process more than about 250 images at once. It get a "No images Processed. Perhaps Empty folder?" error (not verbatim). This number of images that can be processed varies, perhaps with RAM usage, but I'm not sure. Bridge CS6s canned Image Processor can handle all ~2900 images at once.

I'm using Bridge and Photoshop CS6 on a modern Windows 8 machine (16GB RAM, Intel Core i7 3930k CPU @ 3.2GHz) and a separate ~200GB scratch disk)
Whatever method I use to process this many images via Bridge+PS (Bridge Batch of my own scripts, Bridge Image Processor, Dr Brown's image Processor Pro) takes a long time to start (several minutes to bring up the batch/script dialogue then tens of minutes for PS to start working), and is potentially pretty unstable whilst processing. This is related to how many images I have selected to process. Is this standard behaviour?

On a related note, I have recorded several actions to batch common actions (such as adding a clipping path based on transparency). The trouble with some of these actions is that they won't work on all images (some have no transparency, in this example). These images remain open in PS, and eventually clog RAM and stall the process. Without delving into scripting, can anyone think of any ways to clear out these non-processed images?

Hi Emile,

I don't know of an automated solution for you problem. I believe the best way to proceed would be to investigate the migration procedures in the Dam Book and/or dpBestflow's Migration writeup   This will certainly take a good chunk of time but if you put in a little bit of time each day it shouldn't be too painful. Regardless of the workflow you use to get the job done be sure that you incorporate validated transfers using SyncBack, ChronoSync or a similar application.

After more than a decade of shooting digitally, I have literally 100s of CDs and DVDs containing archived images that I want to back up to hard drives.  I can't imagine doing this one CD/DVD at a time.  I started doing it, and it's just too mind numbing.

Does anyone have a recommendation of how to automate this process? 

I am willing to buy the necessary hardware if there is a hardware solution someone can recommend. 

Thanks in advance for any and all advice and recommendations.

Emile Wamsteker
