I have a folder with 165 images in it. I select 'Synchronise folder' in LR Classic (7.4). It says 'Import new photos (165)'. I select Synchronise and LR then says 'No photos or videos were found to import'. The LR folder remains with 0 images in it. How do I fix this?
Have you clicked the 'Show Import Dialog' checkmark in the 'Synchronise Folder' dialog? I seem to remember that there is a bug that nothing gets imported if you don't check that, and I'm not sure that bug has been dealt with.
I tried this and no joy. If I simply go to Import and select the folder it shows all the photos (under All photos) but greyed out so I cannot select them, under New photos it shows none. So it clearly thinks the photos are already there (which they are in the finder folder but not in the LR folder. I have made sure Do not import duplicates is not selected.
I seem to have sorted this out, I backed up the folder to a safe place, deleted it in LR, created a new folder in LR with a different name, imported into that, finally renamed the folder in LR back to what I wanted. Seems OK at the moment.... Thanks
