I am trying out Lightroom as a complete workflow solution and it is hurting my head already!

I have imported some photos and am viewing them in Library > Grid view. Lightroom has decided to stack (auto stacking is not on) two photos together because they have the same name – IMG001.CR2 + IMG001.JPG. These photos are completely different (the CR2 image is a duck, and the JPG image is a cat!!) and I cannot see anyway I can split them up, Lightroom is only allowing me to view/edit the CR2 image!! How do I separate these files???

Also, while I am here… All my photos are organised in YEAR > DATE folder (2007\2007 10 09 etc). When viewing a certain folder I want to be able to filter on keywords in that folder, but when I select a keyword from the "Keyword Tags" menu Lightroom returns every single photo in my entire collection with that keyword! I also want to be able to view and edit RAW and JPEG files in a similar way, but when selecting RAW only files in the "Metadata Browser" I get all the RAW files in my collection! Should I just stick with Adobe Bridge, this handles everything perfectly, and allows me to work only in the folder
I have selected.

Thank you

Demon.

I don’t think we can help you with head problem, "Head On" may do?

Because I am old and slow so to avoid paying catching up with younger folks on retouching world, so before CS3 was released I bought the LightRoom to give me a head start, but because I don’t like the slowness displaying (comparing to ARC) so I have only messing around with LightRoom few short months before I was so sick (health problem not sick of LightRoom) to toy with it to have much experience (just some general).

But I am very sure that LightRoom supports *both* RAR formats and JPG (as well as TIFF and may be others?). So you shoudn’t have any problem opening and adjusting either RAW or JPG.

If the 2 same filename confuse you then you can always "rename" them to 2 different filenames.

Also, while I am here… All my photos are organised in YEAR > DATE folder (2007\2007 10 09 etc).

I know many programs have many fancy options, but I am old and slow so I just display the way Windows Explorer does and it serves me well. Or I can

– Sort by filename’s

– Sort by Date’s

– Sort By Type’s

I read LightRoom has option to sort by RATING but I don’t use this option to know small detail (except you rate the image then select the option), but I think you should be able to find more detail from HELP FILE (?). I saw the option from some free video tutorial.

Thank you
