I Have now clicked on a button in options that has allowed the star rating to appear. Does this help with allowing me to use raw files though...this is the other main issue I have
However I cannot get my raw files to appear.
Tell us how you did this. Tell us the EXACT steps you followed.
Where don't they appear? Be specific, or show us a screen capture.
Did you received an answer, I have the same problem.
Perhaps if you could provide the same information I asked for, we might be able to provide an answer.
My english is not so good but I will try to answer your question. First, I'm using the Lightroom CC - version 6, the try version for now. When I'm in Lightroom, I click to import (in the left side) and it's bring me to my Mac content, and I go to my "Photo" and I select the pictures I want to transfer. My pictures taken in RAW files appeared in JPEG in Lightroom. I try many times with the same result each time.
Thanks in advance for your help.
My pictures taken in RAW files appeared in JPEG in Lightroom. I try many times with the same result each time.
I am going to make 2 guesses as to why this has happened
- You accidentally set your camera to shoot in JPG mode, there really are no RAW files on your camera card ... you can check with your operating system to see what files are on your camera card
- Your camera's RAW photos are not supported by Lightroom, and so only the JPGs are imported. Please state what camera you are using and the EXACT version number of Lightroom (go to the Help menu and see what number is shown next to About Adobe Photoshop Lightroom) and let us know.
No, it's not your first guess, I'm sure of it.
And for your second guess, see what it's written in my Help menu for the version:
Version de Lightroom : CC 2015.2.1 [ 1046594 ]
Licence: Version d'évaluation
Système d'exploitation : Mac OS 10
Version : 10.10 
And finally, I already check and my camera is supported by Lightroom. It's a Sony Alpha ICLE 6000. To understand what was the problem, I just try something. I imported a picture from my camera and it work. In Lightroom it is in RAW files. I imported the same picture in my Photo files on my desk and after import it in Lightroom and it really appeared in JEPG. When a read the information of that same picture, it's really written that's a RAW picture. Something happens when I transfer from my Photo files to Lightroom.
Show me a screen capture of the photo imported into Lightroom with options turned on that shows the file name, and a second screen capture of the same photo in your operating system.
Next to "nom de la copie", you can see this is not your original ARW file, this is some copy of some photo, and the copy is named "Copie 1". So I remain convinced that Lightroom is not changing your ARW to JPG (in fact, there is no function in Lightroom that will do this at import; it can only be done by exporting the photo and then importing the exported photo into Lightroom).
So at this point, I'd like to know if you are exporting the photo from Lightroom at any point in your workflow? Are you using the manufacturer's software at any point in your workflow? Are you creating virtual copies at any point in your workflow?
Thanks for your help. I will now call Apple to see what happening. May be the have the solution.
I really can't see how Apple can solve this. The problem is not Apple hardware or software. I still believe it is your workflow somewhere that is causing this to happen. I repeat my earlier questions:
I'd like to know if you are exporting the photo from Lightroom at any point in your workflow? Are you using the manufacturer's software at any point in your workflow? Are you creating virtual copies at any point in your workflow?
I also encourage you to search your Lightroom for the ARW files. Please follow all 4 of these steps, in order:
- On the left of the Library Module, under Catalog, click on "All PHotographs"
- Expand all stacks (Photo->Stacking->Expand All Stacks)
- turn off filters (Cmd-L once or twice)
- Search for DSC02701.ARW by file name, using the Lightroom filter bar
Also, in your screen capture, next to Dossier is some random looking set of characters, I have never seen a folder name like this before; can you show us a screen capture of your operating system that shows the folder that contains DSC02701.ARW?
I think you are right. The picture I've imported on my Mac doesn't appeared when I expand all my photos in the Catalog, they seem virtual. That's why they have that strange number. The app Photo seem to be some cloud like ICloud where my photos are stocked. That's the only option that Apple offers me when I want to import my photo from my camera to my computer.
I will try to talk with someone at Apple to see what other option I have. I try this morning but the wait is very long.
Finally, I know what was the problem. Those who have a Mac must import the photos on the desk not in the apps "Photo" if they want to keep the ARW files.
Thanks for your help. With your questions I figured what was the problem and I call Apple and they told me that the only solution was to do this operation.
