Search Replace Transfer
Q Have you updated Search and Replace for Lightroom's current version?
- It works on in Lightroom 2 and any later version, including Classic
Q I can't see any of the custom fields
- Most probably you haven't enabled them in the Plugin Manager
Q What if I make a mistake?
- So long as you don't close Lightroom, you can use Undo
- Remember the importance of backing up your catalogue. If you make a serious mistake but still have a backup, I may be able to help you.
WHICH IMAGES ARE AFFECTED?
The plug-in will target images which are selected. If no images are selected, the menu commands will be greyed out. I think it makes sense to force the user to deliberately choose which pictures should be affected.
REVIEW YOUR BACKUP
This plug-in makes it easy for you to change many images' metadata in a few seconds. Inevitably, that brings some risks.
As with all Lightroom work, do not rely on XMP sidecars, if you save them. Make sure you frequently back up your catalogue - daily, at least.
