hello all, i am using a very old version of lightroom, so i am not sure if an answer can be found.
I import photos into a collection, i then develop the photos, and usually then close down Lightroom, and get back to developing etc before publishing. I have found that whole albums have their images offline or missing. I have tried locating the images by clicking on the ? to the right of the images, but this has not helped. The images are still on my laptop- usually in Photos as i import them directly there first. Is there something i am doing wrong? I am aiming to upgrade to the latest version v soon, but for now, can anyone help?
The instructions are here:
Essentially, you first need to know the exact location of the photos (because Lightroom can't find them). You need to somehow find these photos using your operating system, then reconnect in Lightroom based upon the instructions at that link.
Upgrading to a new version of Lightroom will not fix this problem.
thankyou so much for taking time to reply! the info was v useful
