the changes appear only if the photo is exported in the form of DNG

When I make changes (for example, spot healing or cloning) in Lightroom and export the photo to another directory that DNG, these changes don't show up - the image is opened in Camera RAW and removed stains are still there. On the other hand, if I export to JPEG, all changes are included. I'm doing something wrong or is it the way it is supposed to be?

I may be incorrect on that, but, as I understand it (and I'm an addict other more savvy people correct me if I'm wrong), when you export a JPEG image, LR will support your changes, stored in the catalog, for the exported image. However, when you export a RAW image, although a LR DNG format will export the changes, also stored in the catalog, in a sidecar (.) XMP file). LR will never update the RAW file since these are the files owner and undocumented structure as to their internal structure. When you export a RAW file, search the directory to find out if there is a file .xmp with the same name as the .dng file. This is where will be your changes. Keep in the middle of publishers than any external will recognize sidecar files. Photoshop and Elements are, however.

There is an option to "write metadata in the files" in menu metadata. If you click on that, LR will write the changes stored in the catalog in your JPEG, TIFF or DNG image file. For an image of RAW however, these updates are only written to a file. I import my RAW images as DNG files and when I'm done with changes and/or modifications of metadata, I'll use the option of writing to a file to update the images with the changes. In this way, I'm sure that anywhere, I copy these files, my changes and metadata also go along for the ride. It's what works for me but maybe not another Cup of tea.

  • Hotmail has suddenly changed appearance and now present on the top of the page blue with lines. I have a screenshot...

    Run Firefox 15.0. Hotmail has suddenly changed appearance and my page is not at the bottom of the screen. The top 5/6 of the page is a series of horizontal blue stripes. Text in the blue section is the Windows Live titles such as ' home, Mobile devices, etc. When I try to compose a new message, text in the blue box partially covers the 'To' button, so I need to position the slider at the bottom of the button to enter an address. I have tried Hotmail in IE and it seems fine, so it must be a problem of compatibility between Hotmail & Firefox. Hotmail has not responded to my questions by e-mail. I could understand that if this happened at the beginning of a session, just after I have lights, but this happened after, I had been active in Hotmail and other sites. Other sites are not affected, just Hotmail and only in Firefox.

  • When I start with Windows XP Home Edition, the screen appears, only the mouse arrow. Help!

    When I start with Windows XP Home Edition, the screen appears, only the mouse arrow.  Help!

    Hi stevejager,

    ·         Remember to make changes?

    ·         You receive an error when starting?

    ·         Have you tried booting in safe mode?

    Method 1: First of all, we will try to start the computer in last good known Configuration and see if it boots.

    Method 2: If it is impossible to start, try to start in safe mode. If able to start and then try to perform a System Restore, since this is a recent problem that has occurred.

    Method 3: Follow the steps in the below article mentioned.

  • The appearance has changed, and even the Start button is no longer a circle but the former rectangle that says start after the installation of an update.

    I recently installed an update of Windows for Vista.  The appearance has changed and even the Start button is no longer a circle but the former rectangle that says start.  How can I get the old look back with on the uninstallation of the update?  Thank you

    Original title: updates


    It seems that the update was for graphics, as it changed the appearance

    If the update is the problem, you will need to remove it or download and reinstall the graphics driver from your computer or the manufacturer of the graphical Web site map.


    Read this information about updates:

    Microsoft gives sometimes you updates for the 3rd party hardware: graphics, network cards, etc.

    You should only get the latest drivers for them to real hardware manufacturer's website, as Microsoft normally does nor those have the most recent drivers available as Microsoft relies of the 3rd party hardware Manufactuer to provide.

    But unfortunately, the only way to know which is the update of the problem is to install them one by one, until you find the 'wrong' for your installation.

    You can do a system restore to get back until it has been installed (which is NOT the best way to remove an update) or follow this method:

    'Remove an update'

    When you have found the issue of update of the list of updates which is presented > then right click on the update problem > select Hide update > and it will not be available to you once again

    "How to hide or show an update of Windows Vista"

    "How to hide or restore the updates of Windows hidden in Windows 7 and Windows 8"


    Here's how to chanage update settings, if you think it is necessary to:

    "Understanding Windows Update and Extras in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

    Or the other of these two update settings will give you the chance to see what you want to install through Windows updates;

    Download updates but let me choose whether to install them - if you select this option, Windows will download the updates on your computer, but not install them automatically. If you want to install updates, then you must install them manually. You should only select this option if you have a reason to not install updates automatically. Only advanced users should use this option.

    Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them - if you select this option, you'll be alerted when there are new updates available for download and install. You can then choose to download and install the updates that you want. This option should really be reserved for people who know exactly which updates they need, or those who have little access to the Internet.

    But remember you normally only have problems with hardware 3rd party drivers. Other updates are to improve the Performance and security of your system

  • I received a pdf file and the words in the text of the form filled in and saved tabs/forms appears only in the only filed when you click on this field.

    Hi, the text in tabs/forms of the form filled in and saved text doesn't appear when you click on this tab and field offices. When I go to another tab / filed, it disappears. I need to see everything at once.

    Auto-fill text fields is inactivated.  I have acrobat Pro XI / Win764bit.

    It would be good to get a link to an old solution or a useful answer.

    Is there a chance that the application overview on Mac has been used to complete and save the form? What you describe is a typical sign that it was like overview corrupts PDF forms in a number of ways. You can fix this in Acrobat if you have access to a blank form uncorrupted by exporting the form with FDF data and important in the blank form.

  • Using Windows 7 and LR 5 when I look at the list of keywords a keyword has 7 photos but when I check the library with this 350 photos filter keywords appear which includes 7 photos that have the keyword.  Why the showi filter library

    The use of Windows 7 and LR 5, when I look at the list of keywords a keyword has 7 photos but when I check the library with this 350 photos filter keywords appear which includes 7 photos that have the keyword.  Why the library filter, showing images that do not match the query


    Thank you very much for the work you've put into this.  I made the change you suggested making the subkeywords under 'schwartz' to be {name schwartz}.  I don't know who has contributed something, but I think that there are more immediate problem which is mucked up.  As well as the fact that I have several catalogs that I don't know how they were created, I think that the best thing would be to merge all the catalogs into one (it is better to have a single catalog, right?) and delete all the keywords from scratch.

    Thanks for your help.  I'll mark this as resolved issue.


  • Read only topic account appears in writing in the form online

    Hi all

    We use Hyperion Planning have a heading called "Salary" account that is configured for read only. Its parent "Compensation" has the security defined as IDesc (writable).

    The line item salary is used in 2 forms. In a form, it appears as readonly and in the other, it seems also writable. The forms are identical except for the Member changes in the custom dimension for which security is not applied.

    Ideally, this section should appear as readonly.

    Anyone can throw some light on this issue?

    Thanks in advance,


    Can you just try this, change the first shape that works, do a save as and give it a name, change the Member of custom dimension. record. run. Is it the same?

    See you soon


  • Why Tweets incorporated on news sites appear only in the empty boxes?

    Tweets incorporated on news sites appear only as empty boxes in Firefox, but not in Edge: it of a fairly new problem and can have coincided with the upgrade to Windows 10.

    Please try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily disables hardware acceleration, restores some settings and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • Click the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox does not work, you can start Firefox in Mode safe as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the problem is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps described in the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

    When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. This might help others with the same problem.

  • Haw to find the element in the table that appears only once

    I have a table like this 2d:

    1 2 3 4 5 0

    5 6 2 4 7 2

    8 3 6 0 9 4

    5 6 7 7 3 2

    And I need to find items that appear only once in this table

    In this case, 8 and 9

    I also need this elements (row and column) position

    Are integers

    I tried to remodel the table and use the find but no result.

    Your best bet is to remodel a table 1 d do your seaching and use 'Quotient & rest' to convert location (index) in the table 1 d back to the index in table 2D. Use "Array Size" to get the number of rows and columns of the table 2D.

    The histogram only works on 1 d arrays.

    Or reshape a 1 d table. For each digit (0-9), use 'Search 1 D Array' twice. If the first 'search' finds a match (does not =-1), use the offset to start the 2nd search beyond the 1st index discovery. If 2nd 'search' returns-1, then one and the SAME time happens

    The index of the first 'search' to calculate the index (Quotient & rest") line and collar of the 2D array.
