I would suggest you to try a new catalog once, and which RAW file do you have in Lightroom?
Try resetting Lightroom preferences once: Recover catalog and images after resetting preferences in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
I'm not at home right now but will try this later. thank you.
Also, the raw files that I am trying to convert are .CR2 files from a Canon 1DX.
Thank you for the info, sure please let me know the results.
I tried new preference files and that fixed it. I'm not sure what got trashed that I'll have to redo, but at least it's fixed.
Im glad I didn't have to create a new catalog. I have 50000 files in hundreds of folders. That would have made me cry!
Thanks for your help!
Great, that worked for you.
It seems that the preferences of Lightroom got corrupted, so resetting them resolved the issue for you.
Please feel free to post any queries you have in future regarding application.
I have a big problem with this now. I have (had) hundreds of photos with color labels on them in my catalog, going back to when I began using lightroom, two or three years ago. I don't have any color labels now. What happened?! Evidently it happened when I deleted the preference files. Is information on colors kept in the preference files?
Just in case anyone reads this thread later I want to add what I figured out. Also, I did figure out the color issue caused by deleting preferences.
When I first began using Facebook I found out you could change the labels used for the colors. I use the colors for specific reasons. I changed the labels to reflect those uses. I can't remember what happened, but I decided to go back to the original labels very soon afterwards.
When I deleted preferences it went back to those color labels I used back in the beginning. That made the color filter not work so I couldn't get the pictures to show up. I went into Metadata -> Color Label Set and clicked on Lightroom Default. That made it all start working again.
When I first began using lightroom I thought the color label was just a color and you could just change what Lightroom called the color. I didn't realize that the actual label itself, i.e. Red - Follow Up, is what is stored in the file. When you change the label back to just Red it doesn't match any more. If you try to filter by Red it won't find the pictures because they have Red - Follow Up stored.
