  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Can someone help me understand why under the catalog the number of photos is 596615 and in the Main Photos go here 4 Seagate
I have 185783 images. I have looked and lots of the images in the catalog are not found. I have attached a screen copy of numbers.

Thanks in advance...

Looking at the portion of the Folders Panel that you have included in your screenshot, there are an additional 310,000 photos which have been imported, mostly from the LR backup Cloner drive and some from the Macintosh HD drive. So, when added to the 185783 images in the "MAIN PHOTOS GO HERE" folder on the "MAIN PHOTOS GO HERE" drive, that gives a total of approximately 496000 photos that we can see in the Folders Panel. So 100,000 or so photos aren't yet accounted for. However, the complete Folders Panel is not shown, so there may be additional top-level folders further down the list on the "MAIN PHOTOS GO HERE" drive. There are also 3 offline drives which are not expanded, so they may include some of those not counted 100,000 photos, and indeed there may be other drives lower down the panel which we can't see.

The All Photographs total will include all photos imported from all drives, even if some of those drives are offline. If you're not able to account for those additional 100,000 images, try posting a screenshot of the complete Folders Panel, all the way down to the Collections panel header.
