    cant export

    claires27225876

      First week of using light room!

       

      I imported some files, edited them.

      I also renamed the original files and move them

      I can not now export the files and get an error message saying they can not be found

      I can "locate" but I have edited a good amount and cant now link the old to the newly edited.

      is there a way I can do this, or export these new edited images out of lightroom?

      the images are of birds so trying to match up the image to the originals is almost impossible!

       

      can someone advice?

      thanks

          If you mean you renamed and moved them outside of Lightroom, then this is the cause of your problem.

           

          As far as I know, you'd have to reconnect your images in Lightroom to the actual photos (which now have new names) one-by-one. There is no other way that I know of.

           

          You might be (or might not be, that's up to you) better off starting over (File->New Catalog) and re-doing the edits, and this time use Lightroom tools to organize your photos such as keywords and other metadata (do not move to the photos and folders, and if you must rename, do it in Lightroom, but really, don't rename either).
