I'm new to lightroom, however; something has struck me as odd. When I import images into a catalog it removes the previous images I had from the catalog? - Is there a way to 'add' to an existing catalog (as opposed to wiping out what I already had?)
Many thanks in advance.
Lightroom wont delete images from a catalog unless you delete them yourself. There may be 2 explanations:
1. You are creating a new catalog each time you import images, or
2. You need to go to the Library panel and expand the Folders, or have a look at the All Photographs collection
Because when you import images it puts them temporarily into the Previous Import collection which is updated each time you import.
Ahhhh - Eureka, many thanks BBKDon - Yes, it was the folders section which helped, I see how its working now - Many thanks for you help
