Today I imported about 100 pictures, and by mistake to the wrong folder by mistake. That does normally not be any problem, just to move them to the right folder. After editing i hightlighted the pictures i wanted in my slideshow and clicked export to mp4. Problem was that the slideshow contained more pictures than i had highlighted. When I was going to make a new slideshow I cant find the pictures at all. How can that happen? I have a copy of the pictures in my sd-card, but I did a lot of work editing them, so I would really like to get them back!

Please help!!

You imported the image files to a folder on your disk drive. They are still there. You can search in Lightroom Classic for one of the files by name and it should show up in your folder panel.

Some notes on Slideshows-
1) You can limit the photos that show in the Slideshow from the Filter panel (lower right). Or you are better starting from a standard Collection of photos, specifically selected.

2) When you create a Slideshow you must [Create Saved Slideshow] by clicking the tab above the window. Then ALWAYS re-enter or re-edit the slideshow from the 'Slideshow Collection' that is created in the Collections Panel (with the [>] slideshow icon).
