- Shut down the computer for about 10 - 15 minutes and then restart it and check LR
- Also make sure LR is up to date.
- Click on File - import see if that is accessible.
I tried to add a folder to the project, and it also does not work
Thank you for your answer !
I will try this as soon as possible.
What could be the cause of this issue ?
There can be many,
May be a restart will do the trick for you.
- It can be corrupt preferences or permissions on the Adobe folders, or it can also be missing or damaged files.
I solved this without restarting.
On catalog exiting, Lightroom noticed me that writing of metadata in xmp files was not over (only on this catalog)
I deactivate automatic xmp writing (Edit > Catalog preferences > Metadatas)
Then restarted Lightroom
It now works =)
This is exceedingly frustrating. The inability to import new photos has happened to me intermittently over the last couple of years, but since I upgraded from LR5 to LR6 it has become a constant battle and I really wish I hadn't "upgraded." Today, after returning from a one-week vacation, I tried to import my new photos. I have used "auto import" for years. I have a watched folder that I drag all new photos into. LR (theoretically, at least) will import them and apply a basic user pre-set that I use for all of my DNG files. Then I manipulate the photos and drag them into a final location. Today, as is typical these days, LR imported about 6 photos and then just stopped, leaving about 300 in the watched folder. I tried to manually import but import options were grayed out. I closed LR and restarted and it imported 2 or 3 more and stopped again.
I've tried the various tricks listed above as well as re-boots etc. but nothing makes a difference.
For now I have been forced to create a new catalog, which is not ideal, but at least I'm able to import photos into it. I don't know if I'll have to find a way to move photos from this catalog back into my main catalog (something I understand can be done but not easily) or if I'll just have to live with a split catalog. What a pain this is.
