This is driving me nuts...

I open LR and am in the Library Module viewing my catalog...I locate and open the folder where the pics I want to edit are located...I see the filmstrip, I click and select an image or images...and when click import...the Develop Module opens and is blank except for the text "Please Select a Source."

If I go back to the Library Module and double click an image, the Develop Module opens, blank, except for the text "The Image is Already in The Catalog."

Very confused as to what I'm doing or not doing...input is appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Bill,
You only have to import an image once. In the Library module, just single click on an image in the filmstrip and then hit the D key to go to develop.

Or you can click Develop on the top bar to get into that module. I'm not a keyboard shortcut person.
