    When I try to export to DNG, the dng settings always get reset to LR2.0's default settings. Also same with JPEG, so I have to go enter in new values and check off things I do not want etc etc everytime I go to export to a different format. How do I get LR2.0 to keep its export values?

    This is how I organize my photos...
    1) I put my raw files in \raw subfolder ie "2008_08_01 drive downtown\RAW"
    2) I make edits to raw file and export my jpgs tp \ ie "2008_08_01 drive downtown"
    3) once I'm happy with edits I export the RAW as DNG to \DNG ie "2008_08_01 drive downtown\DNG" then delete RAW files

    How would I make a preset that saves to \.. for jpg and \..\dng for dng? I can't figure this out. :wtc:

    why the change? DNG hasn't been any more supported than RAW, and all the RAW converters are still backwards compatible with all models to date. seems like a waste of time to me :hs:

    I don't keep my LR catalog, in fact I don't really use the library portion of LR. I just use the develop module. So after I make changes, I rather keep one file rather than RAW and sidecar.:o

    why even use LR then? ACR would do the same

    autowrite xmp data to file is your friend too
