Hello and thanks Nate for breathing new life into colour negs I haven’t looked at in decades!
I have been using NLP 2.1.2 with raw captures (CR2) without issue for hundreds of images, tweaking negs previously converted in NLP as I get more familiar with the plug-in. Being able to go back and revise NLP settings is great.
I have just updated to 2.1.7 and am experiencing some anomalous behaviour. When revisiting images previously converted in 2.1.2, the image changes colour, etc. as soon as I open NLP. This also happens with images newly converted with 2.1.7 – open NLP again and the image changes. It is as if NLP is either not respecting the existing settings or applying additional unwanted adjustments.
Deciding to go back to 2.1.2, I removed 2.1.7 via the Plug-in Manager and added 2.1.2 again (quitting Lightroom between removing and adding – or not – the same things happens). When adding 2.1.2, a dialogue states:
“Could not upgrade your catalog for plug-in metadata. The plug-in’s metadata could not be updated because it has been updated to a newer format than this plug-in supports.”
2.1.2 becomes inactive and can’t be used. I would like to use 2.1.2 unless I can do something to prevent 2.1.7 from changing previously converted images. Is it possible to do a ‘clean install’ of 2.1.2 or otherwise get it to function again? Have I overlooked something? Should I not have done this so late in the evening?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated – at the moment I can’t use 2.1.2 and 2.1.7 is not behaving as expected.
