Some of the icons in lightroom are showing a different image to the actual image in the file. I have re-started lightroom, and the computer, as well as tried re-syncing the file and updating the location of the file with no success. If I switch modules, the image changes back but if I click to another image the icon changes to the wrong image agin. Any ideas greatly appreciated
Not sure, but maybe this is due to hosed previews.
* close Lightroom
* find catalog file (ends with .lrcat)
* rename "catalog Previews.lrdata" folder (in same directory as your catalog file), e.g. "Used to be - catalog Previews.lrdata".
* open Lightroom
Note: invoke Library -> Previews -> Build Standard Previews
If so, then delete the old previews folder (e.g. "Used to be - catalog Previews.lrdata").
If not, then my theory was wrong - sorry.
Thank you for taking the time to reply Rob. I found the Lightroom catalog preview folders. For some reason I seem to have 2 as well as 2 catalog folders. I suspect this is what caused the problem. I dragged them both out, opened lightroom again and see a new preview folder has appeared and the problem has gone (at least for now).
