I have thousands of tiff files in my LR 4.1 catalog. I'd like to convert all of these files to tiffs that use zip compression. Preferably, I'd like to do the conversion in-place but LR won't allow me to overwrite the originals in-place.
So, I think I have to either export all of the images and either add them to the catalog during the export process *or* manually import them again.
I do *not* want to lose any of the LR edits I've made to these files and I think I will do exactly that if I use either of the conversion methods I noted above.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might do this?
Thank you in advance!
Thanks Dorin, I understand what you are saying. I just did a test and it appears as though when I do the conversion the Photoshop layers are flattened - that isn't acceptable in my case.
I work with TIFFs in both LR and Photoshop simultaneously and with layers. When you save the file in PS it is updated without affecting the LR edits. When adding layers in PS to your TIFFs don't forget to check the 'ZIP' option under 'Layer Compression' in the save dialogue.
