    Photos not visible in LR?

    Chuck Probst Level 1

      Cannot import photos to LR because they supposedly are already in the file.  But they are NOT visible.  Tried synch folder, no help.  Photos are in a portable HD and are visible in Explorer.  Must be another catalog somewhere?  Need help, thanks.

          The most likely explanation is that you ACCIDENTALLY imported the photos into a different folder than the one you are looking at.


          This can happen if you choose COPY (again, accidentally) when you Import.


          So the photos are in your catalog, just in a different folder, and you have to find them. To find them, please do all 4 of these steps, in order


          1. Click on All Photographs on the left side of the Library Module under Catalog
          2. Turn off Filters (Ctrl-L once or twice)
          3. Expand All Stacks (Photos->Stacking->Expand All Stacks)
          4. Search for one of these files by file name using the Filter Bar
