when I import images into LR (recently updated) from my new X-T2, in the import window there is no preview, just the letters "RAF". When I import them I can see them in the develop module, and I believe, also, in the import. But to select which ones to import in the first place is almost impossible.
(This does not happen with my X70 or Leica, btw; I thought it was because of the recent LR update, but have since changed my mind.)
Anyone with similar issues - and most of all: anyone out there with a fix?
Thanks a lot,
Im enjoying using the X-Pro 2 hugely - it is a truly LOVELY camera to use (full review coming soon) - but I am still far from convinced that Lightroom is fully up to speed when it comes to processing RAW files.
I even, somewhat foolishly, purchased a new Mac to see if the speed of my PC was an issue. It isn't. Im sure my files from the old X-Pro 1 were cleaner at ISO3200 - and even if the 'filmic' look is appealing for this kind of image, it doesn't always work for everything I shoot. I do hope updates keep coming as Im getting tired of looking thru the veiw-finder to see how glorious my images can be....
If you are not familiar with Lightroom's keyboard shortcuts you might be happy to know the keyboard shortcuts for the HDR and panorama features.
Ctrl + H brings up the HDR dialog.
Ctrl + Shift + H skips the HDR dialog and just creates a HDR right away, in the background.
Ctrl + M brings up the panorama dialog.
Ctrl + Shift + M skips the panorama dialog and just creates a panorama right away, in the background.
However, I don't understand what settings are applied when using the Shift shortcuts. Is it the default settings or is it the very last settings that I used when creating the very latest merge?
EDIT: Scott Kelby to the rescue. He wrote a blog post (http://lightroomkillertips.com/are-you-taking-advantage-of-lightrooms-headless-mode/) on it and according to him it uses the last settings. I have not been able to confirm this though. Can't find anything in the documentation.
