Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Locate missing photos, part of Cleaning Up Your Mess in Lightroom Classic CC.
- [Voiceover] When an entire folder is missing…within your Lightroom catalog…that's a relatively easy problem to solve…all things considered.…As long as the folder actually still exists somewhere,…perhaps you moved the folder, or renamed it,…you can simply reconnect the missing folder.…But what about a situation…where an individual image is missing?…Let's take a look at an example…and see how to solve that problem.…I'll go ahead and navigate to a location…where I happen to know a photo is missing.…I go browse a specific folder…and I can see an image here that has…an exclamation point associated with it.…
That's an indication that this image is missing.…Lightroom does not know where to find it,…or more to the point,…this photo no longer has the same file name…or is no longer in the same location as it originally was,…or both.…But once you see an indication that a given photo is missing…of course you're going to want to locate that photo,…in other words, reconnect Lightroom's record for that photo…to the actual file on your hard drive.…
