  1. I’m away at a conference so I am looking forward to the recording of your “Spring Cleaning” workshop..

    • I need to clean up LR. It’s getting slower and slower and I don’t know why.

      • Try optimizing the catalog – there’s a checkup in the backup dialog. Otherwise Victoria Bampton has a whole series of articles on Lightroom performance at http://www.lightroomqueen.com.

        • Laura. I use LR almost every day and I had forgotten about optimizing the catalog. It did make a difference. How often should I do this, as this time it took quite some time to finish. I can’t remember the last time I optimized so it must have been last year some time. Thanks, SC loyal follower.

  2. I have had problems with images (especially older ones) showing this message:

    “(File) could not be used because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?”

    I have always known I need to move files from WITHIN LR. But this still happens.

    Kind regards,


    • Unless they are on an external hard drive that isn’t plugged in, then they have been moved, renamed or deleted outside LR. Do use the Find Missing Folder / Locate process.
