    Merge greyed out - Mac Lr 5

    chris y

      Hi all, can someone please help.

       

      I'm fairly new to Lr. I have several images that I would like to Merge. Different exposures, same topic - taken using Canon camera, RAW image - .cr2. Images are downloaded onto my hard drive so no false images - real photos. Tripod used for photos so Lr shouldn't have any issues identifying what is in frame.

       

      I highlight two images; right click - edit - all greyed out.

       

      I use a Mac - sierra 10.12.1

       

      I've tried erasing Lr / reinstalling Lr but don't seem to be able to do this correctly - getting rather fed up with a piece of software and Mac (hidden files and not very user friendly). Progress? This sort of stuff was achievable without complication not too long ago.

       

      thank you for your help

          After a little further reading it would appear that without using CC and or further software this isn't a function available - just a wish?

            I'm fairly new to Lr. I have several images that I would like to Merge.

            Do you mean HDR merge? or Panorama Merge? Or something else?

             

            Neither HDR or Panorama is available in LR 5.

             

            But then I don't understand how you can say "I highlight two images; right click - edit - all greyed out" ... there is no Panorama merge or HDR merge available via right click in LR 5, these menu commands simply aren't there, can you explain exactly what you are doing? Can you give us the exact wording of the command you are talking about?

            After a little further reading it would appear that without using CC and or further software this isn't a function available - just a wish?

            Not correct. Panorama and HDR (if that's what you mean) is also available in LR 6.
