Hi Michael,

As I wrote in my second post, I use the title field for the unique name of the original image. For example, my camera raw file is called IMG_1234.CR2. I rename it to a01234.cr2 during ingestion. Then the title field contains: a01234. If I create a derivative called a01234_master_bw.tif later, this derivative file's title field is still a01234, to reference back to the original raw file. I hope this makes sense now.

Well, there have always been rumors but I am afraid this all will turn out to be wishful thinking. I don't see any signs in the beta of LR 3 to indicate for that, except for the better ingestion module. We'll see in a few months.

Kind Regards, Cem
