    moving photos in LR does not move them on hard drive

    That's it! My import preset uses "copy as DNG" so it was making copies, just as Johan said. The danger of assumptions. Thank you all for the help. I am very grateful to have the problem solved. Thank you!!

    moving photos in LR does not move them on hard drive

    Good thinking! but not the answer, sadly. I download the photos from ICloud manually into the Recent Imports folder. It is not set up to download automatically or the Recent Imports folder would have thousands and thousands of photos in it.

    Thanks, I really appreciate all the help. Luckily nothing has gone missing, so though I'd like to get to the bottom of it it's not urgent. Thank you!

    moving photos in LR does not move them on hard drive

    sure! This is the hard drive in WIndows Explorer showing some photos from May. This is LR showing the same photos in May. These are all photos that went through the process I outlined and I moved to MAY after they were keyworded This is the Recent Imports folder in LR. It is empty because I...

    moving photos in LR does not move them on hard drive

    Okay, I think I'm following you here. I think I am doing what you say in the first paragraph. Or rather I should say, I MEAN to do what you say in the first paragraph. I synchronize the folder by right clicking on it in the LR panel on the left of my screen. Which I believe is what Victoria is...

    moving photos in LR does not move them on hard drive

    Thanks, Greg, that's exactly why I'm confused! I am moving them in LR but they don't appear to be moved on the hard drive. Mysterious!

    moving photos in LR does not move them on hard drive

    Hmmm, that makes sense, but Victoria says here "Import new photos searches the folder and subfolders for any new photos not currently in this catalog and imports them." I appreciate the suggestion!

    moving photos in LR does not move them on hard drive

    Hi, I import my photos from my phone into a folder on my PC Windows 10 hard drive called Recent Import. I then sync that folder with a folder in LR with the same name. I then keyword the photos and then move (drag and drop) them into their ultimate destination folders. However, when I open...

    trouble with capture time when importing from IPhone

    Thanks, I have checked sort by capture so that's not it. If you shoot with the native IPhone camera and then later start the LR app, will it go back and import previous photos, or just the ones taken while the LR app is running? Meaning, do you have to leave the LR app running all the time if...

    trouble with capture time when importing from IPhone

    Hello, I transfer photos from my phone to my PC computer every few months using Lightroom Classic. I use a USB cable and the lightroom import feature. Recently the images in the import dialogue are not in the order in which they were taken, even though "sort by capture time" is checked. For...

    Lightroom misnaming images on import

    I think I fixed this. I was importing into a folder in Lightroom with the same name as the folder on the computer in Explorer so I had created a loop and LR renamed the images to prevent confusion. Fingers crossed. Thanks!

    Lightroom misnaming images on import

    Hi folks, I'm stumped. I have deleted all my old import presets and created a new one. I have set it to rename files to Custom Name-Original File Number. When I import images they are renamed but not with the original file number. The name that displays uses the correct custom text but numbers...

    import/synchronize failure in Lightroom CC

    Thanks I-See-Light and clee01l. I tried both of your suggestions and it worked. I should have tried them one at a time to see which resolved the issue but I was in too much of a hurry. Thanks, EliseL

    import/synchronize failure in Lightroom CC

    Hello, I am trying to synchronize a folder from within Lightroom CC. I have added images to that folder on my hard drive that are not yet in LR. I right click on the folder in Lightroom, and choose "Synchronize Folder". I then get a window where I choose "import new photos" (it tells me there...
