I am working on a Macbook Pro, 8gb with 1 tb
Recently did external back up.
Mac was having issues so we ( IT guys ) did a clean install and only brought back in basics.
( I was on LR3 and PSE9 ) but we didn't bring it over as mirror copy because there were so many other items on Mac I didn't need.
I bought Mac with LR3 and PSE9 so I could not do upgrade,
I instead started the trial today, so we could merge from the external the images to Pictures. ( so it was on external in pictures and now on os-x pictures )
So LR5 brought all my catalogs in, I even got smug mug to find its catalogs. , but now I am getting ! on every image.
I have selective chosen the image from external and moved it to OS X pictures folder.
Why am I getting the ! on the images. When I right click the ! I get error, LR has encountered problems reading this file.
when I click find in file folder I get a tiff picture with a loop on top and if I click that I get this... Item “untitled-8547-Edit.tif” is used by OS X and can’t be opened.
one thing I did just notice is the date on the tiff says, Jan 24th 1984 3am 0 bytes tiff image. ( what the heck? )
now the image right beside it to the left is the image ( I can actually see ) and it looks good.
why is finder bringing up a bogus tiff ?
Thank you for your help. Need to be up and running. Need these ! gone , please help.
