I have grey previews so I tried this troubleshoot already: Lightroom error on preview cache or displays gray thumbnails
It hasn't solved my problem.
The flowing is what I see while attempting to import.
As the grey thumbnails load they initially have check marks in the corners, but these rapidly start to disappear. This screen shot was taken midway through before the final few vanished:
In the develop tab, this is how a previously imported image appears:
In the library there are no "image not found" notices, but all previews are grey.
In addition to the Lightroom error on preview cache or displays gray thumbnails troubleshoot process, I've also experimented with all the options in the library->previews menu
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks for your time
You probably have a defective monitor profile.
Try setting the profile to sRGB - if this fixes the issue, you should ideally calibrate your monitor with a hardware calibrator, which will create a new, accurate profile.
Press the Windows key+R, type colorcpl in the box. and hit Enter.
Add the sRGB profile, then set it as Default profile. See screenshot below.
Make sure Use my settings for this device is checked.
Thank you so much Per Berntsen!! It worked!
