What is catalog finder? If it is grayed out in the Library, it usually means that you have moved the image file to another location outside of LR; now LR is telling you that the file is lost as it is not where it think it is.
Thank you for responding. I appreciate it. I think I got it though. When it said already in catalog I went to the open catalog option. I was able to navigate to the folder but the images were grayed out there too. The problem seems to be that I was accessing LR through Canon Image Browser. You can select a picture and there is an edit with drop-down with all your editing applications. It works fine with PS and Gimp. I just opened LR and went to the library and it worked just fine. Some issue with accessing through the Canon app.
Glad you resolved this.
