    import problem

    atreyeep13150208 Level 1

      Hi

      I'm using Adobe Lightroom 6.3 on a OS X Yosemite version 10.10.3, Mac book pro (retina 15 inch , mid 2014)

      2.8 Ghz, 16 GB ram. I been having problem importing some of the images they are located on an external hard drive

      4 TB la cie via thunderbolt, the Lightroom folder/ catalog has 27116 images, there are all in the same folder/under sub folder.

      I just finish renaming all the files and then converting them in to DNG, for some reason some of the images in different folder did not get renamed so i went back and try to import them but they don't come up. Lightroom is not recognizing the folder with images that are not in the catalog, if I do a search the files are not there, but they don't come up ones i try to import them?

          Hi atreyeep,

           

          Greetings!!!

           

          It seems to be files are already present in the catalog.

          Can you create a new catalog and try in that.

           

          Regards

            This means the photos have already been imported into Lightroom, and reside in a different folder than the one YOU think they are in. (Lightroom is not a file browser)

             

            When you do the search in Lightroom, you need to follow ALL four of these steps:

             

            1.   In the Lightroom Library Module, on the left, under Catalog, click on All Photographs

            2.   Turn off all filters (Ctrl-L once or twice)

            3.   Turn off all stacking (Photo->Stacking->Expand All Stacks)

            4.   Search for at least one of these photos by file name using the Lightroom Filter Bar
