I have not been able to find why multiple identical images are displaying in gridview when filters are applied. There is only one image in the folder. This obviously makes it difficult to apply images to keywords.
I simply can't find the reason. Neither is there anything in help on this issue.
Can you post some screenshots?

Thanks for your prompt reply.
I have spent a few hours looking at my problem. The problem comes from the
filter item (it is a self made problem) metadata status. When set to report all
it finds every image that has been changed. That is why there are multiple
images. Even when this does not displayed it can be active, which caught me
Even though I have been using Literoom 4.3 for several years, I have come to
realize that I need to update my keywords. I have been taking images for 13
years starting with a Canon S10 in 1998. I never paid enough attention to
keywording. My structure from 1904 on is good, but not good enough to find
things fast. So I am in the process of upgrading collections, which are used
for none people kinds of things, and keywording for people events.
I am in Windows 7 Pack 2, with an Intel i5 processor, and 8 gig of ram.
Literoom 4.3 version.
I may be satisfied with a first go through all these years, with as many images
as I can rapidly pick out in Keywords. And then using the keywords as a finder,
and then refining things later. For a long time I only had a memory of the
miserable time with keywords in Photoshop 7. And only now come to understand
the reliability of Literoom. I can do virtually anything in filters and
collections. I had a difficult time finding out about setting dates in
hierarchy or flat - a miserable time. I accept that it will be work to get
Do you have a suggestion for a work around for me of this self made problem of
I can't find Raines back, he had a very helpful tutor on filters. I need the
best you can suggest.

I am in the process of organizing my Literoom images and filter displays
MULTIPLE IDENTICAL IMAGES, under METADATA STATUS changed. .
Computer info - Literoom 4.3, windows 7, some 55,000 images on the hardrive, one
When I go to folders, and click on J drive which holds these images, they all
come up if filter is off of course. Now using metadata I search on a date, a
camera, lense, etc. But I just want to find all of my images on a particular
day. I can find those with no problem. My problem is that I may have 2 or more
identical images display in grid and view as well as film strip. Looking up
metadate status I find that these images are CHANGED. I understand that status,
but there is no way that these multiple images would result from my work.
I searched for multiple files located in multiple folders - NOT THE CASE. What
is creating those multiple files, they are identical as to date, how they look,
If I go to CATALOG, and work with the all the images there, found at the top of
course, I get the same functionality, BUT THE MULTIPLE IMAGES ARE ABSENT.
I can't find the reason for this in any help. I would appreciate very much some
one telling me why this is takes place. It makes it difficult to keyword on
images on a certain date, because of the multiple files.
Filters are a powerful tool for organizing collections and keywords - my problem
is not using filters, but understanding why multiple images.
Further investigation this problem is found in any place - Catalog, or folder.
Believe me this is a PROBLEM. I need to find a live person somewhere in the
vast ocean of helps that can answer this question. I don't have a problem
understanding how to use it, I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHY MULTIPLE IMAGES.
Can you or someone in Adobe answer my question. I just want an answer. Say I
payed my money why can't it work properly.
Hi there! Because the forum you originally posted in is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop, I moved your question to the Photoshop Lightroom forum, where you'll get more specialized help.
