    Develop module Image Mysteriously Disappeared

    The problem was solved. I called my son in LA who knows a lot about computers, but no longer uses LR. He took control of my computer and found the lost image thru Finders. Then he imported it back into LR using Add, not Copy, and it's done. Of course, I must reedit it now.

    Develop module Image Mysteriously Disappeared

    Johan, I checked 'All Photographs,' it's not there, so it's gone. And I never pressed enter after hitting delete either. Of course, when you delete from a Collection, you are not asked to delete from disc or remove. The fact that it was in Collection and I edited it showed that it must be in All...

    Develop module Image Mysteriously Disappeared

    I didn't do Cmd-Z right after the images disappeared. I automatically went to the HD to get it back, the way I'd done so many times. Of course, doing Cmd-Z now just takes me back to the previous page I was on. Should I keep doing it until I am back where the loss occurred? I am kinda afraid...

    Develop module Image Mysteriously Disappeared

    Never thought this could happen. I was editing an image with three virtual copies from a collection. This image was also in some other collections. I never liked the delete button being next to the +button and the backslash button. It has happened time and again that when I intended to use the +...

    Sorting Order

    I am updating on the problem of importing images from my iPhone to LR 5 which I brought up on Feb. 28 above. I thought it might be of interest to some of you. Basically, when I imported new images from the phone, over 500 images already in LR came in again with different file numbers. Also...

    Sorting Order

    Cletus, you responded to what jjlad said, not me. I thought I would mention this problem, but do not expect to get an answer. I copy my iPhone X JPEG images to LR 5. This time about 1/3 of the photos showed up in LR with duplicates. The second copy is lighter than the first original. They are...

    Sorting Order

    Thank you, Johan. It's such a simple thing I never noticed. Another problem: I recently I transferred everything on my old MacBook Pro to a newer MacBook Pro with the latest Mojave OS. I was happy that my LR 5 worked fine. The only thing is that when I copy new images from my iPhone to LR...

    Sorting Order

    I always sort my images in a collection by Capture Time, which is the same as sorting them by File Extension. Looking at eight new images sorted by Capture Time today, somehow I realized that they were in reverse order. To get the order back, I chose File Extension. Now choosing Capture Time...

    LR does not follow command instantly

    Hi Linwood, thank you again for trying to help me. This is truly a friendly forum. Guess what. I turned on my LR 5 and didn't see any spinning wheel. I tested editing in the Develop module and everything worked fine, no delay at all. Looking back, I must have stressed out LR, for the color wheel...

    LR does not follow command instantly

    Thank you Linwood and Richard. The slowness (practically a breakdown) did happen when I did a lot of spot removals continuously. Perhaps I was pushing too hard. Does resetting preferences take care of the GPU setting Linwood mentioned? I think doing this and looking into a new computer are what...

    LR does not follow command instantly

    Thank you, Linwood & Louie. I forgot to mention that the image showed up in LR often unfocused first, then it popped into focus. Also, I removed a lot of spots from one image. When I went back, Some of them showed up again. One spot I just could not remove. All these things are happening to me...

    LR does not follow command instantly

    I have LR on my MacBook Pro. Everything outside LR works normally, but in LR, when I use the mouse, the color wheel shows up spinning and I had to wait, sometimes for quite a while. Ever action I want to accomplish lags by a few seconds when it works. When I click and hold any slider and drag...

    Subfolder not showing up

    Well, I solved the problem. I suspect it has something to do with Dropbox, which Victoria pointed out regarding a separate issue in the past. I have already terminated Dropbox. Anyway, after clicking it open I saw the My Lightroom Photos folder with all the correct subfolders, including all the...

    Subfolder not showing up

    The first screen shot shows the Temporary subfolder I set up on the left. The second screen shot shows the subfolder on the right after I clicked Import – I do not see the Temporary subfolder.
