I have been using Microsoft Photo Gallery, and now have signed up for Lightroom. However, I have noticed that about 20% of the photos are not recognized at all in Lightroom. E.g. I have a folder with 23 TIF files and 11 JPG files, all recognized by Microsoft Photo Gallery, and I can also open and view them in Explorer (so they are not corrupt). In Lightroom I see the 23 TIF files but only 4 of the JPG files. I have removed the folder in Lightroom and then tried to Import it again, but still it only sees 27 photos (4 jpg and 23 tif). I have also unchecked "Don't import suspected Duplicates" without any better result. Any idea why?
Are you using the latest version of the lightroom i.e Lightroom 6.7/2015.7 ?
What about the file names of those photos? Do they have the same file names, except the extensions (tiff/jpg)?
If yes, go to Preference and clear off the "Treat JPEG files next to raw files as separate photos" option and try.
Thanks to both of you. I have the latest version (6.7/2015/7). The Preference tip from you Sunil, resolve my issue. Thanks a lot.
