I import ~200 photos from a SD card while I was traveling in Colombia. My laptop was set to Colombian timezone at the time.

After coming back to the US, I tried to import the rest of the photos from the same SD card, which still contains the ~200 photos that were imported previously. Lightroom Classic could not detect these ~200 as suspected duplicates and tried to import them again.

After changing my timezone from ET back to Colombian, Lightroom correctly detected the ~200 as duplicates and ignored them during import.

System Info:

License: Creative Cloud
Language setting: en-US
