Lightroom 4.1 export problem

Lightroom 4.1 will not export a deleloped image.  I have the metadata to new file set to automatic and I get no error mesage.  All my new exported files are the same as the original.  I need a detailed discription of what boxes need to be checked or unchecked and where to find them.  Something as simple as saving changes so that I might use them in another app should not be so difficult- version 2.7 worked fine so what's up with 4.1? 

Still no luck... I just purchased a licence for my demo version- I was hoping not to have to do  a 1.1Gb download and/or redo my my catalog- is this required?

Are you saying that LR4 is exporting over the top of your exiting images, or that it is not exporting anything?   To test whether you can export anything, try exporting to a subfolder under your originals, instead of new names in the original images folder, which I think is what you’re saying you’re attempting: On the Export panel, all the way at the top, make sure to set Export To: to Hard Drive. Set the Export Location – Export To:  value to Same folder as original photo. Put a checkmark next to Export Location – Put in Subfolder Enter in “output” into the Export Location - Put in Subfolder: textbox. Uncheck the Add to this Catalog unless you really want to include the output of this experimental export in the catalog. Set Export Location - Existing Files to Ask what to do, so LR will indicate if it’s trying to overwrite the same files, again, which it should if the output subfolder is empty. Uncheck the File Naming – Rename To: so the files aren’t renamed. At the bottom change Post-Processing – After Export to Show in Explorer Click the Export button and see what happens.  It should do the export then open up Windows Explorer on the output folder you specified.    Before doing any of this, it might be wise to make a screenshot of your current Export settings, the Export To and File Naming sections at least, which you can both post here and use to reset things back from what I’ve specified, above.

  • Lightroom 4.2 export problem

    When I try to export images as jpeg's, Lightroom 4.2 shows the progress bar indicating the images are being exported.  When exporting is completed, I get an error popup that LR cannot update the original RAW files.  The originals are read-only, as they should be.  Metadata is supposed to be written in the xmp files, as set in the preferences.
    After clicking the popup, there are no exported files. 
    Anny suggestions?

    Sorry, I was wrong about the version. I was looking at the one I have here at work that shows Lightroom 2.4 in the Programs listing and Lightroom 2 across the top when it is opened up. I called home and my son said the version on the laptop that I am having problems with is version 2.5.
    It has served me well until now so I didn't think to check for updates.
    I'm going to check out the updates for the copy here at work and the one at home later tonight.
    Thanks again,

  • Lightroom 2.6 export problem.

    When exporting photos after editing in LR  for example 200 pics I always get message " the following photos did not export" "view in Library".  Usually this around 5 to10 photos. If I now say "export with previous" it does export them. any Ideas would be welcome.
    System is win7 with i7 processor.

    There's a text box at the bottom of the Choose Folder dialogue. Type the disk address you're interested in it (e.g. E:\blah\foo\baz) and hit enter. After that, things should work properly.
    The problem is caused, unbelievably, by having too many icons on your desk top. Weird, eh?

  • Lightroom 5.5 jpeg export problem

    I am using jAlbum to create photo albums on the web with images exported with Lightroom. Since I am using Lightroom 5.5 for the export I am get an error message whenever I create an Album with jAlbum which says "inconsistent metadata read from stream". As jAlbum uses Java the Java version may aslo matter. I am using the latest Java update from  Oracle on a Windows 7 Professional x64 machine. With images exported with Lightroom 5.4 there is no problem. Also changing metadata options in Lightroom's export dialog  did not help.
    Is there a known problem with the Lightroom 5.5 export?

    Same here with LR 5.5. Just generated a few hundred jpegs to further process them in web applications for some online albums. One example is a QNAP NAS that has to generate smaller jpegs. It was working perfectly with LR5.4 and all older versions of LR. But as soon as I exported jpegs from LR 5.5 only grey rescaled images with some "noise" are depicted/generated. Had to go back to LR5.4 and it is now working as expected.
    Adobe: Please do not try to fix something when it is not broken and get a fix for the "fix" ASAP. This is not acceptable for the prices we pay as we are not talking about freeware or shareware where somebody is programming in his free time. Most likely these guys would have already posted a fix for the issue.
    Do your homework and please do it fast!

  • Lightroom 4 exporting problem

    I have been using Lightroom for years without any problems.
    Today I had a problem exporting editing images to DNG. Lightroom will only export the original unedited versions to DNG. If I export to JPG I get the edited versions, but it will not export the edited versions to DNG.
    Any help much appreciated.

    Hi Victoria,
    even when I import the exported DNG into a new LR 4.3 catalog, it doesn't pick up the corrections that were made by the original LR 4.3 catalog to the DNG... This is the first time I'm encountering this... The jpegs, tiffs etc do have the corrections applied, just not the DNG... very weird.  So basically I cannot detach my DNG's from the LR 4.3 catalog at the moment...

  • Export Problem in LR 3.5

    Hi folks,
    I have been working with LR 2.7 for a while now and was happy with it.
    PC - Win XP - LR3.5
    Photo's stored on external hard disk (K:)
    The RAW captures of a Nikon 3100 I recently won were not being recognized/imported by LR 2.7 and I installed the 3.5 version to see if it was any better. I would have to buy it anyway by the time I switch to Win7. In 3.5 the Raw files were imported, the settings of 2.7 were nicely taken over but now and I cannot export the files I have worked on to the K: drive of the external hard drive as I used to do with 2.7.
    I get the message 'The folder could not be found' though it is set in the Export Window and I am looking at it in Win Explorer.
    The original RAW captures are on the D: drive but that was always the case with 2.7 as well... I am doing it exactly as I used to with 2.7.
    I tried with a photo from an older folder of my usual camera and everything works fine there.
    The problem seems to be only with the Nikon files. Now I start wondering if there is something with raw format of this Nikon camera that is putting LR in a twist...
    Anybody any ideas to help me out?
    Thanks and grts

    @ web-weaver:
    Of course they go to a different folder and they also get different
    titels/names once processed in LR. The originals are always RAW (NEF) and I
    export them as jpg or tiff files depending on what more I will do to them.
    @ ssprengel:
    I get the message when I have renamed the file in the export window, set
    the folder it has to go to and hit export.
    In the 2.7 version I got it already when I tried to import.
    As I said, this only happens with the Nikon (NEF) RAW files. With the
    Olympus (ORF) RAW files I have no problem at all and had no problem in LR
    2.7 either.
    I cannot see anything wrong in the Export panel nor in Preferences.
    Plug in is Metadata Wrangler and has been updated to the latest version >
    no joy...
    I tried import/export with jpg files and no problem there.
    Yesss! Got it! What I had overlooked was a question mark next to the folder
    in Library (sooo small). A rightclick and telling LR where it was solved
    the problem. Strange, though, as it has never done this before... the main
    folder and the path are still the same as the ones that work perfectly with
    Olympus exports... just a different subfolder named Nikon and another named
    Test... Also strange that if I started off with jpg, it was no problem
    Anyway, thanks a lot for shaking my senses for me

  • Lightroom 4.4 export

    I had selected some photofiles in Lightroom 4.4 for export and after having selected the destination on one of the computers harddrives, I clicked "Export". When I wanted to repeate the process for some other files in the same main folder, a window stated that the files were offline or missing. What happened and how do I get my photos back?

    This means that the photos are not in the expected location on your hard disk(s), and Lightroom cannot find them. This usually happens becuase you have moved renamed or deleted these files (or the folders that contain them) outside of Lightroom (to fix the problem you can use this procedure:, or the hard disk where the photos are stored is not plugged in or powered off. On Windows, it can also happen if the drive that the photos are stored on has changed letters.

  • Lightroom won't export my exact dimensions

    Lightroom won't export my exact dimension for my photos. How can I change this.

    Are you running the latest version?
    In Lr5.4 most but not all of such bugs are fixed.
    If already running Lr5.4 then go to feedback forum and cast vote to the problem fixed.

    Please help!!
    How many times can you install Lightroom 5? My problem is that I have saved my programs on C. To I have more space, I want to save my programs now on E. Can I now uninstall Lightroom and reinstall from C to E? Can I use the same license code as the first installation?

    Thank you for your answers, it helps me a lot.
    But sorry for my ignorance. I understand how you mean it, but I don't know how to do it. I'm scared to lose the settings/edits of the images.

  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom has encountered a problem and needs to close. (ver 1.4.1)

    I completed a search for this problem here and other forums, and found very useful information, however, I still need help. My laptop is an HP Pavillion dv1000, Intel Centrino, Windows XP, 1.24G of RAM; Camera is a Canon 5D, shooting JPEG only.
    After a couple of weeks enjoying a vacation in the Caribbean, it was time to load all the new pics in the computer. I removed the card from my camera and using windows explorer, downloaded all pics in MyPictures folder. I created a new folder for this trip, and while I was there, I decided to reorganize several folders from previous trips. I renamed and moved folders around, deleted pictures, etc. (I believe that all the changes that I made created my problem.)
    Once I finished all the changes with my folders, I launched Lightroom (ver 1.4.1) with the idea of synchronizing the folders and start working on my new pictures. After apx 8 seconds, I got the message: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.
    After a google search, I found a lot of potential answers to my problem, including this one, which I tried:
    "It might also be worth trying a temporary test catalog, just to see whether it's specific to that catalog. To do so, go to File menu > New Catalog and create a new catalog somewhere easy - Desktop perhaps - and just try importing a few photos into that test catalog and see if you can get it to freeze. I'm wondering if the catalog's been damaged slightly by that initial unexpected close, and if so, we'll see if we can get that sorted out for you."
    I did exactly that (created a test catalog) and I don't get the error. I am not clear on what does that mean. Could you help me understand it? What do I need to do to use my old catalog? Is it damaged? How can I fix it? Did I loose all the work that I did in my previous pictures?
    If I go back to my original catalog, I still get the error.
    Thank you in advanced for your assistance.

    Here's something you might try:
    Create a new, empty catalogue and try File->Import from catalog... and specify your broken one as input. With luck the damage will be left behind.
    If that doesn't work, try deleting or renaming your preferences file. Look here for its location.
    And if that doesn't work, try deleting or renaming your presets folder. See that same website for details.
    Let us know how you make out.

  • Lightroom 3.2 Installation Problem on Windows 7 64-bit

    Lightroom 3.2 Installation Problem on Windows 7 64-bit
    I can't install Lightroom 3.2 (German) on my computer (Windows 7 Professional 64-bit).
    While copying the extracted program files the following error message appears:
    An error occurred during the installation of assembly component {6435B7C0-E0C8-3EA2-91AE-7640034EAFCE}. HRESULT: 0x80070002.
    I found out that other users had the same problem, and couldn't find a solution.
    Perhaps it is a Microsoft .NET Framework related problem. But after installing .NET Framework 4 nothing changed.
    Thanks for ideas to solve the problem.

    Thanks for your advice, Mr. McLion.
    I downloaded the 3.4.1 version and started the installation as administrator. Unfortunately the same error message occured again.
    Then I tried to install the 32-bit version (although I prefer a 64-bit program on a 64-bit operating system). A similar error message appeared at the same point of installation progress, but with another combination of numbers and letters in brackets.

  • CS4 Audio Export Problem

    I'm fairly new to CS4 and have picked up an audio export problem, more than likely with a setting of sorts. For some reason when I export to MPEG2 -DVD via the Media Encoder, the video portion is fine as well as any audio that has been placed and edited on tracks audio 1 and 2 in PP. However, if there is additional audio placed on tracks 3 or 4 for example (say a music MP3 overlay) then this does not come out ... only audio placed on tracks 1 and 2 in PP come out. I have checked the obvious like making sure the tracks aren't muted etc but to no avail. Also tried changing from PCM audio to MPEG ... Stereo to 5.1 mixdown ... nothing doing.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks and regards
    Videoman 1

    Thanks Harm ... got SnagIt and with a few helpful YouTube tutorials ... am in business. Hunt and John, also thanks ... the other method equally as good. Now, I have attempted to attach my screen shot which should display my CS4 timeline and associated audio monitor windows above. By the way, this was for a wedding and as indicated, you will notice an MP3 lying in audio track 3 which as mentioned is my problem as it is not audible after render via Media Encoder. But remember, the moment I slip this MP3 up into audio track 1 or 2 above ... problem solved. I know there must be something small like a setting gone wrong or incorrect. As mentioned, any help would greatly appreciated.
    Thanks to you all.

    Look, I'll make it REAL simple...
    TIFF = Good
    PSD = Bad
    PSD is now a bastardized file format that is NOT a good idea to use. Even the Photoshop engineers will tell you that PSD is no longer the Photoshop "native" file format. It has no advantages and many disadvantages over TIFF.
    TIFF is publicly documented, PSD is not. That makes TIFF a preferred file format for the long term conservation of digital files.
    And, let me be blunt, anybody who thinks PSD is "better" than TIFF is ignorant of the facts. If Adobewould let them, the Photoshop engineers would tell you to quit using PSD.
