Out of the blue, when I re-import Photoshopped files back into LR3, they fail to appear in Grid View. But they DO APPEAR in the 'Import' screen, grayed out, as normal. So why is LR suddenly not showing them in Grid View.
Here's a screenshot of the import window that clearly shows the image that does NOT appear in Grid View. Notice that image# 2012_3_4-Edit.tif resides immediately next to it's original 2012_3_4.tif file. It obviously is part of the catalog, LR knows it's there but it does not appear in the Grid. I really need a solution to this because I've build my workflow around moving files around with LR and this is a major setback for me now. Thanks
A step forward! I clicked 'All Photographs' and now the search finds the
edited files. But they still do not appear in the Grid View.
Well, when you get back from your shoot you need to explain what you mean by "Grid View" in this context. The Grid can be populated in many different ways: it can show All Photographs, it can show the contents of a folder or collection, or the result of a filter search, or a keyword search, or different combinations of these.
When you did the search with All Photographs, the result of that search was shown in the Grid, so the file did appear in a Grid View. So what we need to know is what particular selection had you used to populate the Grid before your "Edit In" procedure.....only then will we be able to help work out why you're not immediately seeing the new derivative alongside the original.
It is also probably a good idea to check the Sort order - either Capture Time or File Name will normally put each edit file right next to the corresponding original. If set to Added Order or Edit Time, these may be widely separated - perhaps scrolled entirely out of view. The same with File Type, etc.
Populate the Grid? I thought the Grid automatically populates with all the
photos that are in the folder? That is what has always happened in the
past. This problem is brand new and has never happened before. It sounds
like a setting may have changed. But I don't see what the issue is because
if I click the 'Open a copy' (NOT open a copy with LR adjustments) then,
upon closing the PS edited photo, it appears next to the source image.
It's when I click on the 'Edit a copy with LR adjustments' that it fails to
populate the Grid View.
OK, here's what seemed to correct it but not sure why. When I did a new
'find' and located the 'missing' image, I right-clicked on it and selected
'Go to folder in Library' and it magically appeared. But I don't know why I
needed to do this extra step because I never had to before.
If an image shows when you go to that particular folder, but does not otherwise, it may be that you have un-checked the "include photos from subfolders" option.
Say you have folder A, and nested inside that, subfolders B and C.
When this option is checked, if you click on folder A, you will see all of the images from folders A, B and C.
When this is not checked, you will only see images that are stored immediately inside A.
Somehow, it's all fixed now. I just imported more new photos, did a quick
'edit in Photoshop' with 'Edit a copy with LR Adjustments' to one of them,
made the adjustments in PS, Cntl S, Cntl W and it appeared, as God
intended, right next to the source image in LR. All is well and I thank you
for all the emergency help.
