Browser displays previously edited image not currently selected one
Has anyone seen the Browser display the wrong image after editing?
- Select an image and make some edits.
- Still in the editor, use the Filmstrip to select a different photo.
- Make some edits.
- Return to the browser.
You should see the last image you edited is selected in the Grid view. However, when I go to the Photo view the first image I selected gets displayed, not the currently selected & last edited one.
Brian, Not seeing the same as you ( Win 10 ) If I edit an image and select and edit another image using the Filmstrip in editor and return to browse, browse remains in filmstrip mode and the last image edited remains selected. If I go to Grid view from Filmstrip after I return to browse the last image edited remains selected. I should not the browse window remains whatever mode I was in when I hit done or browse. If I am editing in single image mode browse is in single image mode when I go back and if editing in filmstrip mode browse is filmstrip mode when I return last image edited always selected.0
Thanks for checking David. What happens if you close the Filmstrip while still in the editor?0
I started in the Grid view and returned to that. It does show the last image edited as the selected image as it should. The problem occurs when I go to the Photo view (single image), it will display the image I had selected when I entered the editor. It's repeatable for me. Could be a Mac thing.0
Brian, Went to edit from grid
Edited a photo
Turned on filmstrip in edit & selected a new photo
Turned off filmstrip to edit in single image
Returned to browse
Browse is in grid view with last image edited selected.0
I've tried it a couple of different ways and it's working ok for me too.0
David, all that is what I'm seeing to. The problem happens when I press the E key to view the selected (last edited) image in Photo View. That is when I see a full screen preview of the first image I had selected when I went into the editor. What happens if you press E? I suspect an old buffer in the GPU is being displayed.0
Brian, when I press the E key the previous edited photo goes full screen, not the image selected in the grid view.0
Bingo! That's what I'm seeing too. Thanks David.0
You are welcome Brian!0
Maybe I'm not understanding the problem. I've tried everything I can think of to replicate this and can't make it happen. Is it a Mac thing?0
David says he's on Windows 10. Maybe it's a video card thing?0
Rick, start in Grid view. Pick an image and edit it. Staying in the editor use the filmstrip to choose a new photo. Make some editing changes and return to the browser. You should be in Grid view with the last edited image selected. Pressing the E key now on my machine shows the first edited image, not the currently selected image.0
I probably viewed the first image in Photo view then returned to Grid view before going into the editor. That would fill a GPU buffer with that image's preview. I think it could that same buffer being displayed when I come back to the browser.0
Nope, sorry. Followed instructions, but working properly.
By return to the browser I assume you mean to click Done. I even tried switching between grid and detailed view a few times before going into Edit.
It all looks good to me.0
No, I use the G key. I just tried it with the Done button and got the same results.
I didn't see it until the edits included an effect. Making adjustments to only the tone & color sliders didn't trigger it. I don't know if that is related or not.0
Brian - I was just making adjustment to tone and color on different images nothing done in effects. Just tried it again and same result when I press the E key in grid view the previous edited image shows up not the image selected in the grid view. I get same result by clicking done, Browse button or the G key to return to browse.0
OK, thanks again. I'm already in contact with support about this so your feedback is more for them to work with.0
G? G is grid but you said browser. I'll try it again...
Edit: Done, still don't see it. Sorry.0
Rick - I didn't know, it but you can go to grid view in browser just by pressing G key while in edit. I imagine you knew that. I just rarely use keyboard shortcuts so this has been a fun learning experience for me ;-)0
Pressing the G key in the editor returns me to the browser in whatever view mode I was in when I started editing. I'm aa big fan of hotkeys.0
Brian gotcha just tried it. I was thinking G stood for Grid lol. I use a trackball so shooting around the screen is pretty easy for me. Most of the time my keyboard tray is pushed under the desktop when I am editing. I guess if I used my laptop with touchpad or regular mouse more I would learn more keyboard shortcuts.0
Everybody makes that assumption including me! ;) It actually stands for Thumbnail View when you're in the Browser. The widget just means go to the Browser in whatever view mode you left it in.
I used to drive my Kensington (ADB port) with an 8 ball from a pool table. :) They're pretty nice.0
Ha an 8 ball from a pool table -- that would be nice!0
(I found this original post you made about this image change issue. It seemed more logical to continue this discussion in this thread than in the other thread.)
In your discussion, you mention "Photo" view several times ["Photo view (single image)"]. On Windows, this appears to be called Detail view. (In Edit mode, I have only 'Detail' and Filmstrip' as view options.) I assume that's what you are referring to.
I am running PR 2020 on Windows 10. I was able to consistently reproduce this issue you are seeing. The key that others may be missing is that you MUST switch back to Detail view before switching to Browse mode. Not sure if this needed on a Mac, but it was for myself and Rick when he reproduced it.
Steps to reproduce:
Get into Browse mode, Grid View.
Edit an image.
Switch to Filmstrip view.
Select another image in the Filmstrip.
Edit the second image.
Change View to Detail view. (If I don't switch back to Detail view before switching to Browse mode, the problem will not happen.)
Switch to Browse mode
Press the "E" key. The first image will display, which is not expected.
Other items learned:
- I originally thought I was seeing something similar to what you were, but I noticed that what I'm seeing is actually caused by Browse mode 'forgetting' that I was in Grid View, and it switched to Filmstrip view. (Carrying it forward from the Edit mode.) I was still expecting the grid display, but instead saw 1 large image, thus my confusion. More details are below.
- It sounds like PR might be behaving differently for me than what you are seeing. If I am in Edit mode with Filmstrip view and I switch to Browse mode, I am no longer in Grid mode as I would expect. I am now in Filmstrip view in Browse mode. If I understand your scenario, when you switch back to Browse mode, PR remembers that you were in Grid mode. This seems to be a behavioral difference between PC and Mac versions.
Some details on what happens to the View setting when I switch between Edit and Browse mode:
-I can switch back and forth between Edit and Browse, and Browse remembers which View was selected. But changing the View setting in one mode can cause it to change in the other mode.
-If Edit mode gets changed to Filmstrip view, then Browse is being automatically changed to Filmstrip View (not expected behavior).
-If Edit mode gets changed to Detail view, then Browse is left in the view that it was in. (expected behavior)
-If Edit mode is in Filmstrip view and Browse mode gets changed to anything other Filmstrip view, then Edit mode gets changed to Detail view (not expected behavior).
On Windows, PR is sometimes forgetting (or intentionally resetting) what View it was in when switching between Browse and Edit. It sounds like on the Mac it remembers that setting. If so, then this seems like a second bug on Windows.0
You had requested that I create a screen capture of me reproducing this issue. I did, and it's a 93mb file. (first time I've done a screen capture.)
Do you want me to mention your original support ticket number when I submit the screen capture and problem report?0
Yes, you can do that. It is 240928. You won't be able to attach that video to the support request. You'll have to upload it to a sharing site like Dropbox then give them the download link in your request.0
Stevie just informed me this has been logged as a bug. Thanks for your help Carl.0
You're welcome Brian.0
