I receive an error message "cannot import images"
I have tried trashing the preferences and have also reloaded LR 5
This started after downloading Yosemite to my MAC
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Which camera model?
Which version of Lightroom?
How do you connect to your images?
To where are you attempting to import them?

And what does the end of the error message say? It should tell you why it can't import them.

Do you have all the updates for Lightroom installed? (Lightroom 5.7.1)
