Lightroom: No Image displays in Develop Module after Deletion of Other Images

[A number of people are now reporting this for 2015.8 -- see below.  -- John Ellis]

Hi, In Lightroom 5 and 5.2, when using the X key, then Delete Rejected Photos, the central display box no longer displays an image. If I switch back to Library mode an image will appear but if I go back to the Develop module, again it's blank where an image should appear! Is this a known issue? ThanksJohn

Hi William and Bobby, thanks for the info. I still have not managed to figure this out, but I'm wondering if it has something to do with Filters. In Bobby's screenshot, I see that a filter is applied. The pop-up says "Custom Filter" and the "Unlabeled" label swatch is highlighted (in the "Filter" area at the bottom right, above the filmstrip).

In the screenshot that John included in his original post, the filter area says "Filters Off" but the "Red" label swatch is highlighted (which, I think, should not be possible...).

So, for folks who are having this problem, does using filters have anything to do with it? If you don't user the filters, can you still reproduce the problem?

Thanks,
Ben

When I go through all of my images on my local C drive, I do not apply filters to the pictures I intend to delete. I select a non-rejected image before I delete. I just deleted over 100 images in Library mode and only hit CTRL+Backspace key to delete the JPGs from disk into recycle bin - and I do this to avoid the issue. But I will try and duplicate the issue and post how I caused the image area to go blank. Thanks for looking into this Ben!

Hi Cali, to be clear, I'm not talking about image filters (i.e., Develop Presets), I'm talking about Library filters (i.e., settings which control which photos are shown).

Hi all -

I too had this problem show up, and reverting (roll back) the monitor driver worked for me.

This issue showed up again in 2015.8 of Lightroom CC release right after the update. See my video showing the exact same problem. No fix yet...

I've just run into the same problem after updating Lightroom CC to 2015.8.  Exiting and restarting Lightroom fixes the problem until next time I delete an image.

I have the same problem in OS X 10.11.6. My workaround is to collect all the flagged rejected photos and right click to delete them from disk. The key combination of CMD-DELETE seems to trigger the freeze.

I've been having same problem intermittently after updating Lightroom CC to 2015.8 (a deleted item remains on the screen and I can not view/edit other photos).  I usually use the drop down menu command to "delete rejected photos."   Exiting and restarting Lightroom fixes the problem until next time I delete images.  It takes FOREVER to restart LR.  I'm on a 2011 iMac with OS 10.12.2.

Slightly differnet behaviour here but deletion related:
LR CC (2015.8). This is valid for Loupe View (E) as well as Develop (D)!
When I delete an image which is saved on my local hard disc, Loupe and Develop progress to the next image in the current grid order. If however I delete an image which is saved on my NAS (Synology DS 214+) I get a dialog saying that the image can not be moved to the recycle bin (as it is on a network drive, fair enough) if I want to delete it permanently. If I say yes, I want to, then LR fails to move to the next image in the grid order and shows a blank background (in Loupe and in Develop!) with a text saying thet there is currently no image selected. When culling images on my NAS this is rather a nasty recurring twitch in the backside.
If this is a totally unrelated problem, feel free to extract it in its own thread.

This seems to happen when I'm in my "previous import" folder in the Develop module.  Does not happen in Library view.

I have been having issues as well, and searching for solutions for the last several weeks, I think since the last update. When I 'delete rejected photos' from the 'develop module' my screen gets stuck on a single photo and I cannot navigate with the arrows or even by clicking on another image in my filmstrip. However, if I 'delete rejected photos' from the 'library module' I am still able to navigate between images. So until Adobe addresses the issue, that's the process I've been using (as long as I remember to switch into Library Module before I pull the trigger and delete). Otherwise, I have to quit lightroom in order to get it functioning again, and that is just a drag. ;-)
