Does the camera you shot them with have a BW or monochrome setting? Is it on?
Do you have another app that you can open them in? Are they still BW there?
My bet is the first instance, but that is because I did the same thing and it took a bit of tinkering to find it.
Try using the v key as that cycles between b+w and colour.
No. I have checked the camera. Settings are fine. Photos appear in colour. Only when imported into Lightroom 5, do they turn BW...
Thanks!! The v key works. Just that I need to click on each and every photo.
Would be helpful if the imported photos come in as COLOUR!! hahahaha
Thanks for your tip.
Ok sounds like you may have inadvertently set an import preset or default.
What does it say in the History of one of the b+w files???
You can select all and use the v key to change them all with autosync on.
Thanks so much guys!! Yes the colour is BACK!! Whew!!
Appreciate the help. Im new at this!!
