Transfering LR Pick Flags from one folder to another

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by tom_luongo|1, Oct 1, 2007.

  1. I shot a session as RAW+JPEG and separately imported each set of files from
    different folders into Lightroom instead of importing directly from the card).
    I then made a few adjustments (exposure, color, and flags) to the files in the
    jpeg folder.

    Is there a simple way to transfer settings from the 250 jpeg files to the 250
    raw files? The files have the same name except for the suffix.

    For this particular task, it would be quite easy to re-do by hand. But this got
    me wondering about whether there is any sort of 'parallel sync' work-around -
    perhaps by exporting XMP files from the jpeg folder then importing them into the
    raw folder.

    I'm still pretty new to LR so the way I asked the question above may need

  2. <<The files have the same name except for the suffix.>>

    One thing you could try would be to move the RAW files into the JPG folder and then uncheck "Treat JPG files next to RAW files as separate photos" in the preferences.

    I'm not 100% on how flags would be handled at that point, but if no other solution comes to light, then it certainly would be worth a shot.
  3. Nothing happened. But by moving the photos to the same folder/collection, it is easy enough to copy the flags by hand. Thanks.
