I've uploaded my photos to Lightroom but didn't download them to any other application on my computer like iphoto. I use a MAC OS X version 10.6.8. Now I can't edit any of these photos and I can't find the memory card with the photos on them. Please help! Is there any way I can still edit these photos without downloading the pictures again from the memory card? I can see all of the photos but it has a question mark over it and says "file name is offline or missing." Any and all suggestions would be helpful, thanks!
How long ago did the images go missing?
I take it that a search of the hard drive did not locate the images?
Unfortunately, if you did not build "smart" previews when you imported the images, then you cannot edit the images until they are found.
