- Could you please confirm if you click on " All Photographs " in Library Menu, is the Start Rating missing from all the images ?
- Or is the rating missing from some specific folder.
- Also please check that you should not have enabled any Filter.
I went back into my catalog to do some housekeeping
Specifically what "housekeeping" did you do?
I don't use collections very much. I use it basically to select images I could use on my web site, portfolio shots, just for marketing type images. I noticed that a couple of collections folders had somehow gotten created that I didn't need or want. I went into those folders and deleted those images. I then went into my regular Catalog to go thru and delete images I didn't need, a little catalog house keeping. (After a couple weeks of jobs being finished I'll go thru and delete images that were not selected to be used, to save HR space) I rate images by stars, any star rated was an image I wanted to keep, an X are rejects, a pretty simple system.
Images that I had given a 5 star rating were no longer rated. Ratings less than 5 are still rated! and the rejected images are still rejected - Only the 5 start rated images are no longer rated. Images I would select for my Collection folder would have been a 5 star rated image. Because I cleared out the collection folders I had somehow created by mistake has caused this. But thats not suppose to happen is it? I can still go thru the images and ReSelect all the images that are to be 5 Stars but that could take a long time to do. Thx for your help

Do you have a recent backup, so from a period of time when Lightroom still had the 5 stars?
Thanks for the response, Solved that problem a while back.
