two photos showing black & white in Library view, have aready performed face tags on these photos, did the whole folder. if I click show in explorer, they are coloured as they should be....only on two photos So far !
any ideas why this should happen, should i be worried can i fix this

Just checked it shows these two as Black & White in the source folders, but only from lightroom.

will save the catalog and restart the PC

Wish I could edit for longer, I deleted one of ther pictures from the catalog and imported it again, now its colour and ok, strange thing is the other photo has gone back to colour also, obviously its a LR / catalog glitch as the original photos are ok. would like to know if i should report it as a bug
If you have a photo selected in LRC and type 'v', the photo is converted to B&W. Typing 'v' a second time changes it back. Could you have done that without noticing it?
