That is apparantely a known issue with Catalina, Charles.  Choose one that allows you to get down into Users>Charles...>Desktop>IDKWTF.

By the way, Charles, why are you back in the Import dialog working with that folder? Did you go out to Mac Finder to that folder on your Desktop and delete those files, as I suggested yesterday?

No, I wasn't sure by deleting it I would lose my pictures where they are stored.
Are those files somewhere else as well?

I thought you wrote that you had found them. Below I have consolidated a response from Johan and one from myself where we were explaining how to find the versions already in LR:


(Regarding the images that are grayed out in the Import dialog)  That means that these images have already been imported. They could have been copied into another folder when they were imported. Select ‘All Photographs’ at the top of the left panel and see if you can find them or in the Import dialog note the file name of one of the grayed out images that LR is telling you is already in its catalog, cancel out of Import, and do a text search for that file name: In the Catalog panel (top left) click on All Photographs, then in Grid view (G), above the grid in the Library Filter bar click on Text, then in the text box type the file name. When that file appears or when you otherwise find one of these images, right click on it and choose Go to Folder in Library - in the Folders panel Lightroom will show you what folder that image resides in.
