Is there any way to Export an Adobe Lightroom People View?

I’m working on a large set of photos scanned from family albums and want to share them with the labels that I’ve added to identify each person that I’ve identified.

I don’t know how to phrase this unambiguously so I’m attaching a screenshot of what I want to export.

enter image description here

I want to post such photos to a website where my family could help identify people whom I don’t know, correct my mistakes, add stories, etc.

BTW, I think that Adobe would increase loyalty to Lr if they made this function available (or revealed how to do it).

Does anyone know how to do this?

How do I flatten a PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?

I’m running Adobe Acrobat Pro DC on Windows 10.

I scan a single page of text and save it as a PDF. From a photo editing application (doesn’t matter what it is), copy an image into the clipboard (1 inch by 2 inches is fine). Launch Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and open the PDF. Now do Edit > Paste and drag/size the image to some place on the page. How do I save this as a PDF without a separate image “floating” on the page.

My objective: when the consumer of the PDF clicks on what used to be the image, the entire page is selected, not just the 1″ X 2″ image.

What I have tried:

  1. Tools > Print Production > Preflight > PDF fixups > Flatten annotations and form fields and then click on Analyze and fix. The result is “Flatten all annotations into page contents (1 object)” and “No problems found”. I close Adobe Acrobat. From Explorer I confirm the file was created and that the timestamp indicates it was just created. It is identical to the file I started with. When I click on what was the image, only the image is selected, proving that no flattening had occurred.

  2. There is a script floating around the web:


    From Adobe Acrobat: Tools > Javascript and then Document JavaScripts.

    I enter a script name, click Add, and enter the script. Now what? There is no Run button anywhere. How do I run this script?

  3. Printing the document to a PDF printer from within Adobe Acrobat and from within the Edge browser. Both resulting PDF files that preserve the image as a separate object.

The Workaround:

This is really ugly, but the only way I could get what I wanted was to print the page to a color printer and then scan the freshly printed page as a PDF and replace the page giving me trouble with the freshly scanned page.

file management – How to find photos that do not have any keywords assigned to them in Adobe Bridge?

I’m trying to organize my archive using Adobe Bridge. In one step I messed and moved some untagged photos to another folder that all its photos are already tagged. These photos are parts of my everyday street photography photos, so they are taken on different days and can not be distinguished visually.

Is it possible to filter photos that do not have any keywords assigned to them in Adobe Bridge?

I searched the web and couldn’t find anything. Perhaps I’m missing the right keywords.
Thanks in advance for your help.

PowerPoint: how do I prevent Adobe Illustrator files from getting pixellated?

I am using Microsoft PowerPoint (v16.40) on Mac.

I often put Adobe Illustrator (.ai) files in my slides (by drag-and-drop) and it works great.

Until I close the presentation and open it again. Now, some of the images (not all though, which I do not know how to explain) are heavily pixellated.

How do I prevent this from happening?

interaction design – How to add clickable icons to a scrollable map in Adobe XD?

I’m using AdobeXD’s new scroll groups feature to make a scrollable map. I need clickable icons on this map to move with it as users pan the map.

I have tried grouping the icons with the map but this disables the scroll feature.

Has anyone figured out a way to do this?

Adobe Acrobat shortcut conflict with cmd + arrow

Although + right arrow or + left arrow are the standard Mac shortcuts for the beginning and end of the line, in Adobe Acrobat these are the shortcuts for next and previous view. While using Adobe Acrobat, their shortcuts have preference over those of the Mac and I cannot find a way to customize the Adobe shortcuts.

Is there a way to force the Mac navigation shortcuts to have preference over the Adobe ones?

design – What are the differences/similarities between the Adobe XD for Teams plan VS. Figma Professional Plan?

We are evaluating taking either the Adobe XD plan for Teams or the Figma professional plan. Apart from pricing and some add-on offers (Adobe fonts, for example), both seem similar when it comes to design and collaboration (for example, collecting feedback from other stakeholders). Are there any noteworthy differences between the two?

We are a team of developers, project managers, and a designer. Apart from the designer working on the design, sharing the work, presentation, and collecting comments from other team members (on the actual artboards/frames) are the requirements.

Adobe Creative Cloud access blocked on some clean machines

Please let me know if I’m in the right place.

I WFH with my partner.
Our home set up.

  1. 1 Gb Fibre, wired, but also 2 x wifi connections to the Asus Router (2.4 and 5)
  2. We’ve just rebooted the router to factory settings
  3. 1 Phone hotspot for emergencies.
  4. Me: desktop Linux, Desktop Windows, Laptop Windows
  5. Her: Desktop Windows, Laptop Windows, Laptop Mac
  6. Me: adobe creative Cloud (ACC) basic account (I created free account to test this issue)
  7. Her: professional account with several adobe products installed on various machines.

Our Main issue:

  • She cannot access the web site ( and therefor sync correctly from app to cloud (a service that she’s paying for).

Here are some more facts:

  • On my machines, I can connect to ACC both on my account and hers. and all seems to work.
  • On her machines the connection is refused and we get a ‘check network settings’ screen in the browser.
  • She has done a factory reset on both her laptop and desktops, only installed ACC and cannot access.
  • we’ve confirmed with out ISP there there’s no issue with that URL on their service.
  • She has no anti virus or firewall software installed.
  • On the Hotspot, she CAN connect to ACC.
  • We’ve confirmed that her hosts file has NO adobe references (it’s a clean machine)

So, why do her machines not allow her to access the URL?
The only time it doesn’t work is on her machines (signed in on any account) on the home network.

I’ve done nothing fancy to my machines, nor she.

Adobe have said that as it’s working on the hotspot, it’s out of their hands (and I can understand why they’d say that).

Where do I need to post this question to get the best help, or does anyone have experience in this?

adobe flash – Video randomly stops playing online and offline on Macbook

Over the last month or so, videos on my macbook will randomly stop playing, this goes for both online videos in multiple browsers and videos stored on my computer that I try to play with VLC/Quicktime. When I try to play videos, it will just stay frozen on the initial screen grab and continue to try to load. The only remedy I’ve found is to reboot the computer and videos start playing fine again. I’ve tried uninstalling/reinstalling Flash, but that hasn’t resolved the issue. Since it is happening both online and offline, I’m a little confused how to go about resolving this, but the error in the browser console is net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT. Unfortunately time machine is not an option.
