Try Photo->Stacking->Expand All Stacks and look again
If you don't like the order of photos you are seeing, change the sort order with View->Sort
thank you for the reply, but they are still missing...will have to re-edit
As per DJ..."Expand all stacks", would have been my first suggestion, but your first post just raises questions for me?
export both original as well as virtual copies to Hi Res.
You do not need 'Exported' versions of a photo to use in the Book module. A Virtual Copy will work just as well without an export.
I started populating the book module
How? Give details please. How did you get photos into the book?
when I returned to the collection I was editing
Which Collection was this- a Standard Collection, or a Saved Book Collection? (or do you mean a "Folder" of photos?)
My preferred 'Book' method is to-
1. Create a Standard Collection and select these photos,
2. Open the Book Module,
3. Create a "Saved Book" Collection
(4. Optional- Delete the Standard Collection)
5. Add extra images to the book by adding to the "Saved Book" collection.
6. Only ever work the Book design from the "Saved Book" collection.
Thank you for the advice, really appreciate. I think it was while I was working in the book module that I lost the pics.
I sometimes, like I did in this case, use the book module simply to create montages of pics. I open the book module and then simply drag and drop into the preferred layout, but not sure if this is the best way of creating montages in Lr?
I eventually recovered the missing (most of them) pics by going into Library module, selected all photographs and sorted by time.
creating montages in Lr
Yes, the Book module can create montages, but you are limited to the templates that are provided for page design. (Save the 'book' to JPG)
You can also create montages in the Print module using the Layout Style "Custom Package". Here you have almost 'freehand' ability to place images (in cells) on a page. (In the Print Job panel you "Print To: JPG")
But if you want 'fancy' -like rotated images, borders, shadows, etc, montages are best done in Photoshop (which you have as a CC subscriber)
