Stacking lost after update of Computer / Lightzone version

Hi,

I edited some pictures on my old computer, where I had LZ version 4.1.5.

Now I bought a new computer and copied the picture folders over to it. There I installed the newest LZ version, 4.1.7. Unfortunately pictures are not stacked there, it seems as if the LZ edited files (with _lz ending before the suffix) are not correctly linked to the original pictures. Therefore it is as if the editing was lost.

I am not sure if the problem is the switch of the computer or the new LZ version. Would I need to copy over more than the pictures?

Anyone has some advice what I can do to see my Lightzone editings on my new computer? I am working on windows 10 on both computers. Just let me know if you need further information.

Kind regards,

Buhu

Same Directory?

Edited LZN files have to reside/be paired in the same directory as the original images.  Are the edited LZ images in the same directory as the original?

Hi,

Hi,

sorry for the late reply.

I could fix the problem in the meantime. The lz files were in the same directory, but lightzone somehow did not find the connection. Interestingly, after editing one of the lz files all of the sudden the connection was made. Strangely, I thought I tried the same already before without success, but maybe I am wrong and tried to edit the original file instead.

Glad it's working Now

Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint data location issues and it becomes a trial by error method to find the solution.
