    BACKUP OPTION DURING FILE IMPORT NOT AVALABLE

    Bertuele

      Schermata 2014-11-15 alle 11.40.56.pngHi everyone!

       

      In my Lightroom 5 (Italian version MacBook, Yosemite) the option "create a second copy in: /User/..../Download  Backup" is not available any more! I found nothing in "Preferences" and now I cannot make an automatic download when importing from Sd car or HD. If I click on it, nothing happens.

       

      Could anyone help me :-) ? Thanks

          The "Make Second Copy" option is not available when you use the "Add" import option at the top of the centre panel, which is possibly what you are selecting when you import from HD. However, when you import from memory card, such as SD, the "Add" option should be greyed out, which means that the "Make Second Copy" option should then be available for selection.

           

          So could you confirm what import option you are using?

            Thanks, Jim!

            I usually import shoots in LR into two steps:

            1) I copy the SD files in a folder on the HD (and rename it, immediately deleting photos I'm not interested in from preview)

            2) I import pictures in LR

            So, thank to you, now I understand why the options doesn't work!

            Bye
