Almost every time I export/save photos from CC, the program will begin the process, then stop halfway through and restart... which then duplicates the file.
For example, I tried exporting an album of 80 high res images yesterday afternoon, which I walked away from...and four hours later,came back to the program STILL exporting, and I had SEVEN copies of about 3/4ths of the images from the album.
If its user error, for the love of goodness, please correct me.
If its a problem with CC, how would I go about fixing it? I've switched computers, uninstalled and reinstalled and restarted my computer.... nothing seems to fix it!
Please help! Exporting weddings is a frikin NIGHTMARE.
Now in LR 8.1, I can delete only the extras and the correct .dngremains. Unfortunately, LR now creates at least two (2) duplicates every time upon both inporting AND exporting.
Reinstalling will serve no purpose...it's a bug inthe program, not your installation, and it is a PITA. I spent eight (8) hours yesterday undoing all of the crap LR created.
- How many files are you trying to export?
- When you see this, is the export batch running long enough for the computer to go to sleep midstream?
- Are you on Mac or Win?
Using latest Lr version on Mac OS 10.15.3, exporting to jpg, 90%, original size, no further changes in parameters
I have the same problem on my 2013 MacBook Pro:
* macOS Catalina 10.15.2
* Lightroom build 20200204-0604-bc5e360
Whenever I try to export raw images from my Canon M50 to jpg, the export gets stuck and starts over, which results in multiple copies of the image. I never had the patience to wait more than 8 hours, which was not enough to export 200 images.
I found the following workaround though:
Deactivate wifi to disconnect Lr from the cloud. Import the images, make your edits, and then export. Then, the export works like a charm. However, as soon as Lr had a connection to the internet, it does not work any more for those images and the export gets stuck.
I noticed that the export also works for photos that are fully uploaded to the cloud already. So I suspect this bug is related to the simultaneous upload and export of images (which is kind of the usual case when you import a lot of images, edit them and directly want to export them).
Hope this helps in finding the bug and fixing it.
