Lightroom to Flickr to this forum
« on: March 09, 2015, 06:08:07 PM »
What is the link consequences between the time you PP a shot in Lightroom send it to Flickr then post on the forum?  I have noticed if I post a shot on this Forum then decide I want to print the shot with different settings the original photo posted on this Forum goes away.  Any ideas?

Hmmm.... I haven't experienced that, but something similar where I wanted to change the crop on a shot I had already loaded to Flickr through LR, and LR wanted to re-send every photo I ever sent to Flickr through LR, so I ended up exporting the shot as a .jpg file on my hard drive and posting it here the old fashioned way by attaching a file.  I wish I could remember more about how it all went down, but my take home message to myself was to never try to modify a photo after loading it to Flickr out of LR.

why not create a Virtual Copy in LR.  Leave the one posted to Flicker alone and just change the virtual copy settings for printing.

That is the way I would do it.

Now as I remember, and I have started publishing from LR to my Facebook and sometimes my Smugmug, that it will ask you if you want to publish the changes.  So if you did NOT publish the changes, then your link would still be good I would think.
