    Jpeg files

    BigDingus

      Hi folks.

      My Lightroom doesn't see any of my jpeg files.

      Once I've worked on my RAW files I export them as Jpeg to the same folder, but once I've done that LR doesn't show them.

      I've tried syncing, importing and making sure the 'Don't import sus duplicates' but nothing helps.

      Has anyone got a solution?

          Lightroom, by default, does not show your exports. If you really want the exports to show in Lightroom — and I don't think this is a good idea — you can click on the box in the Export dialog that says "Add to This Catalog".

           

          It's not a good idea because it just clutters up your Library module, now where the edited RAW photos appear, side by side will appear an identical (in appearance) exported JPG. Now you have 2 photos that appear identical, where you used to have one. I see no value to this.

            Thanks dj.

            Once I thought about your comment I realised your correct.

            Don't think I'll bother now.

             

            Cheers
