I'm attempting to export photos to a subfolder on my desktop, but several of them have "failed to export." I get a message saying the files cannot be found. Not only can I not export the photos, I get the same message when I change from Library to Develop. The images are JPEGs. I am absolutely stumped.......HELP!!
This means that the photos have been moved, renamed or deleted outside of Lightroom, and so Lightroom can no longer find them. It could also mean that if the photos are on an external disk, the disk has been detached, or on Windows, assigned a different disk letter.
First, you need to find the photos in your operating system. Then, you can reconnect the photos inside of Lightroom following these directions: Adobe Lightroom - Find moved or missing files and folders
