I have used lightroom for ~2 years and have lightroom 5.5 installed on a PC. Yesterday evening I uploaded a new set of photos which I cataloged and rated as usual. After that when I switched to the develop module trouble began. First thing was when using the crop tool the picture would disappear and only reappear once I closed the tool. Then exposure and White balance changes would change the histogram but not the appearance of the photo. Finally clipping was also not appearing on the picture. I first reuploaded the photos. No effect. Then I reinstalled lightroom. No effect. Help please!

    Edit:  Are you saying you are getting a prompt for your email pin, or are you talking about the passcode lock that appears when you turn the phone on?

  • Labwindows recompiles files when I switch from the development environment to another application

    I am writing a labwindows driver, but having issues with the environment itself.  I am able to compile the .c file for the driver, and my panels are working.  I am having problems with labwindows recompiling the .c file even though nothing has changed.  It is a random problem that I have seen before, but never managed to get around.  The problem shows up in a variety of instances.
    I.E.  While in interactive execution, I can click on another application on the taskbar (internet explorer, email, etc.)  and labwindows displays a message that the c file is being recompiled.  Nothing in the file changed!  Why does it try and recompile when it is simply losing focus?  This is 'random'.  Just when I think I have found a way to reliably reproduce the issue, it quits recompiling when I switch applications.  I have tried playing with the build options, but haven't had any repeatable success.  I even tried to enable the -o option, but is still recompiles the file.  (maybe -o won't work on a driver since it won't build without a main?)  I have even had issues with calling printf in a function during interactive execution.  It recompiles the c file for no apparent reason right after the stdio window prints the message.  At this point, the stdio window closes, and labwindows pops up the compiling message again.  It kills my interactive session, and I have to redeclare all of my variables to continue checking out my driver.
    I see the same issue randomly when I go back to the project from another application. (Click on labwindows in the taskbar, and it immediately compiles the c file.)
    I have seen this in other projects, and it appears that the issue is limited to instrument drivers.  When labwindows pops up the message that it is compiling files it is almost always a driver that is loaded as an instrument.  I played with unloading the instrument but leaving the .fp in the project, but I don't think that worked. (It has been awhile since I tried to figure this out.)  When working on a driver, it would be difficult to unload the .fp or not load the instrument anyway.
    (I just clicked on labwindows in the taskbar to see if I left anything out.  Labwindows popped up the message that it was compiling the c file.  It appears that I can go back and forth between the labwindows icon in the taskbar and the cvi icon ~15-20 times and then labwindows will recompile the file.  I even walked away from my computer for a couple of minutes, and it compiled when I came back and clicked on the labwindows icon.) 
    I am running labwindows 9.1 (but have seen this on 8 also)
    The files are on a network drive.
    (Could it be mcaffee or some network security stuff confusing labwindows?)

    My pc is currently running Windows XP sp3.
    I first saw this issue when I went from LabWindows 7.1? to 8.1?   I am sure that I had the issue in 8.1 
    I was able to reproduce the issue in production on a pc running windows 2000.  (Which is what I had at my desk previously, and had seen the issue.)
    I asked another member of the test engineering group, and I am not the only one seeing the issue.
    One of the earlier replies mentioned the auto save feature.  When I went to production to see if I could reproduce the problem there, I opened CVI and explorer.  I wanted to check the time-date stamp on the .c file that keeps recompiling.  The time-date stamp was a day old, and did not change when the period of time for auto save was passed.  (It probably would if I made changes but didn't save the file?)  I was able to switch back and forth between the explorer window and cvi, and the file would recompile.  I played with turning off the auto save, enabling the build status window, making the -o option compatible with cvi 5.0, displaying the build status column, etc.  It appeared at one point that it had quit recompiling when switching between applications.  I went back to my desk, and tried to match the settings, but never reached the same conclusion.
    There is not anything special about the project I am working on.  It is a labwindows driver for a pxi module.  There are only three files in the project, the .c .h and .fp.  The .c file keeps getting recompiled at seemingly random times.  It is especially frustrating during interactive execution while testing my code/function panels.  If I switch to another application and back, I almost always have to start over because compiling the file closes the interactive execution.  I have to redeclare all of the variables, and re-run any of the setup panels that are required.  (I have to open the DRM, load the module fpga/dac, and then I can run the panel I am actually trying to test.)  I have similar problems when trying to troubleshoot with printf statements, as it seems to recompile when focus switches to the stdio window.  I have resorted to a test project, where I can add the function calls and skip having to do any work via interactive execution.
    I haven't been able to find anyone outside of where I work reporting the same issue.  Maybe it has something to do with IT/viruscan/etc.  It is definately a strange issue.
    (I have switched back to CVI several times while writing this, and the .c filed recompiled about 20% of the time.  At one point,  I had left the build options dialog open when switching back and forth.  I did not change any options, but the .c file recompiled when I closed the options window?)
    Occasionally, when I see what appears to be the recompile message flash up, my interactive execution does not halt.  I.E. I don't have to redeclare my variables.  It is sometimes hard to see what the message says, you just see a dialog box pop up and disapear really quickly. 

  • Better visualization of switches in the development module

    How would you like the feature to work?
    in the development module there are so
    many switches for filters and parameters,
    it is not easy to recognize which of them
    are active or which are not active
    (in the moment they have the up or down
    position and the same gray color)
    In my opinion it would be much better if
    the status of the switch is indicated by
    a color change (perhaps green = active,
    gray = not active) see the "HDD present
    light" in the folder of the libary module
    Why is this feature important to you?
    with this feature you have a very fast
    overview of all development settings
    weather they are active or not active
    (in the moment it is not so transparent
    and I have to look carefully in which
    position the switches are standing)

    I agree with this suggestion. It's hard to see a difference between ON/OFF especially when the panel is collapsed. I know Adobe is trying to keep the interface all grayscale so, they might not go for a colored indicator. Maybe they could just use white or light gray for ON and black or dark gray for OFF.

  • Lightroom is giving me an error message when I go into the Develop Module.

    It reads:  An error occurred when attempting to change modules. I still see images along the bottom of the screen, but the complete top is gray, not even menus on the right or left?  Any thoughts?

  • When I transfer to the Develop module I get a message " The Folder could not be found"

    The photo shows up but I am unable to edit the photo. What am I doing wrong?

    If you are still using a Cloud-acquired version then yes you should uninstall and reinstall using a licensed version.

  • How do I read inches instead of pixels, in the develop module

    How do I read inches instead of pixels, in the develop module. I am not discussing resolution. When I crop, I need to see the numbers in inches, not pixels.
    I am not exporting to anything. From the develop module I go on to the print module. However I want to see inches, not pixels, in the develop module.
    I am not cropping to an aspect ratio. I am cropping to a given size, in inches, just as if I was in PS CS 3.

    Thanks in advance.

    >Instead of the image in pixels, why can't I read it in inches? Physical size in pixels is staring at me, why can't inches be there instead?
    Because it is not there. The size in inches ONLY becomes real at print or at export time and can and will change depending on what you do there. Before that you are looking at a number of pixels in a computer.
    >I need to set these values in the develop module, just as if I was setting them in PS CS 3.
    That does not make any sense. There is no need to set this in develop at all. Lightroom will scale to your final size at export/Print/web/slideshow. Not in develop. There you are working with the RAW data at its native size.

  • Changes not displaying properly in the Develop Module

    When I make a change in the Develop Module, the changes are not displayed correctly in the main window, and the navigator window turns grey. When I return to the Library Module, the changed image is correctly displayed. Then when I return to the Develop Module, the changes are correctly displayed. I followed the troubleshooting steps and at one point Adobe says the user permissions might not be right. I created a new user, and in the new user profile, LR works as it should. I am using Windows 7. What do I need to change in the old user's 'permissions' to match the new user's 'permissions'? I would prefer to delete the new user, rather than re-create my computing environment all over again.

    If you see grey windows in Develop it is almost typically a bad monitor profile in Windows. Unfortunately quite common. You should recalibrate the monitor. If you don't own a calibrator, try going into your monitor's properties pane. Go to the Color management tab and delete any profile associated with the monitor.

  • What is best for me. I have been using Elements for many years (since Elements 2) and now want to but either 13 or Lightroom. Can anyone help me decide

    I have been using Elements for many years (since elements 2) and now want to upgrade. I am reasonably old and at this stage do not understand Creative Cloud. Am I best to upgrade to Elements 13 or try Light room 5?

    Do you want to make a one time purchase (Photoshop Elements) or pay monthly rent ($9.99 per month for Photoshop and Lightroom)
    Do be aware that the subscription model is just like rent... stop paying and the programs stop working... but you get the full Photoshop

    FIRST charge with an Apple charger for at least 15 minutes. Then hold the HOME and SLEEP buttons at the same time until an Apple logo appears. Hold for up to 30 seconds. If nothing happens the phone hardware has failed.

    Back up all data.
    This procedure will unlock all your user files (not system files) and reset their ownership and access-control lists to the default. If you've set special values for those attributes on any of your files, they will be reverted. In that case, either stop here, or be prepared to recreate the settings if necessary. Do so only after verifying that those settings didn't cause the problem. If none of this is meaningful to you, you don't need to worry about it.
    Step 1
    If you have more than one user account, and the one in question is not an administrator account, then temporarily promote it to administrator status in the Users & Groups preference pane. To do that, unlock the preference pane using the credentials of an administrator, check the box marked Allow user to administer this computer, then reboot. You can demote the problem account back to standard status when this step has been completed.
    Triple-click the following line to select it. Copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C):
    { sudo chflags -R nouchg,nouappnd ~ $TMPDIR.. ; sudo chown -Rh $UID:staff ~ $_ ; sudo chmod -R u+rwX ~ $_ ; chmod -R -N ~ $_ ; } 2> /dev/null
    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Paste into the Terminal window (command-V). You'll be prompted for your login password, which won't be displayed when you type it. You may get a one-time warning not to screw up. If you don’t have a login password, you’ll need to set one before you can run the command. If you see a message that your username "is not in the sudoers file," then you're not logged in as an administrator.
    The command will take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear, then quit Terminal.
    Step 2 (optional)
    The first step should give you usable permissions in your home folder. This step will restore special attributes set by OS X on some user folders to protect them from unintended deletion or renaming. You can skip this step if you don't consider that protection to be necessary.
    Boot into Recovery by holding down the key combination command-R at startup. Release the keys when you see a gray screen with a spinning dial.
    When the OS X Utilities screen appears, select
    Utilities ▹ Terminal
    from the menu bar. A Terminal window will open.
    In the Terminal window, type this:
    resetpassword
    That's one word, all lower case, with no spaces. Then press return. A Reset Password window will open. You’re not  going to reset a password.
    Select your boot volume ("Macintosh HD," unless you gave it a different name) if not already selected.
    Select your username from the menu labeled Select the user account if not already selected.
    Under Reset Home Directory Permissions and ACLs, click the Reset button.
    Select
     ▹ Restart
    from the menu bar.
