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.
Adobe Lightroom CC using desktop install 3.2. When exporting more than 10 photos at a time, multiple duplicate photos are created at random, causing the export to run for an extended period of time, and never completing. This is huge bug that has rendered the program useless. Previously I was able to export without this issue. Using Macbook Pro. I shut down the computer and changed folders without any luck. Please help.
- macOS Catalina 10.15.4 on a MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012)
- Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.2.1, Build 20200403-1047-0e59df2
as I said: download al large number of Pics (<100) to desktop from cloud starts again and again after an Internet interruption and creates duplicates. My Workflow: downloading Images from Camera to iPad Pro at location and edit on desktop at office, then download final Images to Folder on Desktop. So I have to split my download into smaller parts and that's annoying!!!
I am only trying to export 36 photos and it won't complete, and it just keeps restarting. It creates 13-14 duplicates for the first 15 photos then stops.
I am no longer able to use this software for my wedding photography editing, since it is impossible to export a client's entire gallery.
Are there any workarounds?
