Although I haven't changed anything I am unable to open plug-ins such as Luminar Neo in Lightroom 6. When I right click and click on "edit in" Lightroom freezes and I have to close the program via the Task Manager. Please can anyone help?
Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Paste that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.
It's possible that you neeed to update your NVIDA GPU driver, visit their wed site and search fou an update. Use the "Studio" not "Gaming" driver.
See if that helps.
It could be a Preferences issue. IIRC you have to manually delete them in LR6. You could try a new catalog in a different user account first and see if this works.
I will look at that. As far as the catalog is concerned, I tend not to use it as such, I just drag and drop files from a storage device opened on an adjacent screen.
Please explain further, when you drag and drop image files to LrC I believe LrC imports the images to the Catalog and the originals remain where they are.
When you use the "Edit in feature" LrC must have access to the original files. So does your computer have access to the "device" where the image files reside?
If not then the "edit in function" will fail.
You stated "As far as the Catalog is concerned, I tend not to use it as such,".
You need to be aware that you cannot work with images in LrC until they have been imported to the Catalog. The Catalog is a data base file it does not store image files or copies of image files. The files are where you have chosen to store them, but LrC needs access to them.
Yes guys, I import files by dragging and dropping as described and yes they then import to Lightroom, but as I said I do not specifically use this feature in Lightroom. I always go back to my original storage device which is via my PC. Also, I have always done it this way without any problems at all when it comes to editing in plug-ins. Sorry If I appear a little dence, but I fear that I am a little out of my deapth here!
I did a quick search and Luminar Neo doen't appear to support Lightroom 6. Add in, Adobe no longer sulpports Lightroom 6 or older versions of Photoshop.
Best recommendation - it's probably time to either sign up for the Creative Cloud Photograph Plan or dump Lightroom 6 all together and just use Luminar Neo.
Thanks all for your advice and help. I think I am coming round to the same conclusion regarding dumping lightroom in favour of Luminar Neo. However, it's a shame as I believe that I get better results sometime with my initial RAW adjustments in Lightroom. As for as Neo not being supported, I am unable to open other earlier plug-ins in Lightroom that used to work. Tony
