I'm working on a rather large collection of images, and since a few days, I'm unable to import photos which I stitched using hugin. Photoshop can open/read them just fine, but when I synchronize the lightroom folder, lightroom reproducably crashes (latest lighroom-4 on windows 7). I even tried to convert the stitch from tif to jpeg but that does not help. Also, I tried to put the image within a different folder within my lighroom catalog and import it from there, but I still get a crash. May be this is related to the image metadata and the lightroom database.
Is there anything I can do here? This problem is... rather painful. I know there is not too much info in this problem report, but I don't know what other Info I could provide...
Thanks for your help
Have you tried File > Import Photos and Video, rather than synchronizing?
Have you tested importing into a new catalog?
Adobe doesn't care any more about LR 4. But you might try downloading the free trial of LR 5 and seeing if it has the same problem. (It won't affect your LR 4 catalogs). If it does have the same problem, then file a bug report at Adobe's official feedback site:
Ah, I didn't know of the Import Photos/Video option and this indeed did work without a crash. So I think, I call this closed. Thank you!
