Images always need to be imported to Lightroom. There is not other way to see an image in LR except importing.
Right Lightroom does not Open images. It is a Database program that References the images you Import to it.
You first have to Import your images into LR then once LR is open you can View, Edit, Print and Export (Or Send To, "Edit In" other image editing program) your images.
Hi If I right click on an image I can't import into light room
I have to open lightroom then import
You can also drag and drop the image from your operating system into the open Lightroom application window, and this will initiate the Import dialog box.
