Which version of Lightroom?
Does the pictures already has been imported?
Which format does the missing pictures have? In case of RAW from which camera type.
I'm in the folders view in lightroom. My lightroom folder says there are 39 images, but in the folder on harddrive there are many more. I tried to synchronize, but it says there are no new pictures to upload, so nothing happens. How do I get the missing photos to show up in the folder in lightroom?
This normally means you have already imported the photos into Lightroom — and perhaps you have (accidentally) imported them by copying them into another folder. Thus Lightroom knows about these photos in the other folder, and you cannot and should not import the photos again.
Go into All Photographs, make sure your Filters are off, and then sort the photos by file name and then search for the photos by scrolling up or down until you find the in alphabetical order.
