I am trying to upload pictures from my card onto Lightroom using a mac. It is JPG and Raw files. I get the error that they could not be read. I have tried everything and Im desperate to get this working I have clients that want their pictures.
I assume you mean you are trying to Import the photos, not "upload" them.
This error message usually means you do not have write permission to the destination directory. Change your permissions.
Im sorry yes I am importing them. Im new how do we change that?
Go to your favorite search engine, and type in
change permissions Mac
change permissions Windows
Ok sorry I didn't clarify that I was importing onto Lightroom. It is giving me the error but I can see the pic on the preview but it won't import any of the raw or jpg files.
Look at the destination you’re specifying in LR’s Import panel at the top right, and check to make sure it is what you intend. If not, change it to what you intend it to be, and if it already is, then where you’ve told LR to copy the photos to isn’t writable by LR, so when LR tries to import the files after the copy they cannot be read.
Changing permissions is not a LR thing it is a Mac thing which is why it was suggested you google how to change permissions on a Mac.
