Matt Kloskowski has posted an excellent video on using the new Catalog feature in Lightroom 1.1. The video covers exporting a Catalog on your laptop and importing this Catalog into your desktop catalog. He also shows how changes to images already in the Catalog are handled in the import process. The final part of the video covers creating new Catalogs and changing between existing Catalogs. For those interested in syncing between different machines and/or working with multiple Catalogs, this video is a good introduction to those tasks.

Ian Lyons, from Computer-Darkroom, has posted an article on locating missing files inside Lightroom.
Question – My thumbnails have a ? symbol on the top right corner – what does this mean and how do I remove it?
Short Answer – The ? symbol is used to identify a file that Adobe Lightroom can no longer access; probably because it has been moved using one of the Operating System tools such as drag/drop or possibly the Move command. Unfortunately, Adobe Lightroom currently has no way of tracking such changes, so the ? symbol is displayed to warn the user that the file or folder containing the file can no longer be accessed.
Long Answer – Locating Missing Files and Folders
Even though Lightroom now uses the Folder paradigm rather than Shoots (as was the case during the public beta), it doesn’t display the full disk/folder hierarchy in the tree form that most users would be familiar with. This means that moving folders from disk to disk or even to a section of the hard disk not shown on the Lightroom Folders panel very often needs to be done using OS level tools such as Drag/Drop or even the Move command. The problem with this approach is that Lightroom can easily lose track of your files, and this results in the ? symbol being displayed.

Joe Barret of The Image Space has been posting a series of tips and tricks relating to his usage of Lightroom. Covering issues from Folders to Using Web Module, he has a diverse bunch of useful insights about the program. His most recent post is on “Fixing Missing Dates“.
When you import scanned images, by default they do not have an EXIF Date Time. Because of this they appear as “Unknown Date” in the Date section of the Metadata Browser. Joe takes us through using Edit Capture Time to set the date to the File Creation Date.

Jeffrey Friedl, author of Jeffrey’s Lightroom Metadata-Viewer Preset Builder, has created a new Web Application for modifying the appearance of Lightroom. With an equally lengthy name, Jeffrey’s Lightroom Configuration Manager allows you to customize aspects of Lightroom not available in preferences normally. Based on the internationalisation framework, it takes advantage of the need for Lightroom to provide translated strings for its French and German versions.
