Lightroom: No Photos Found To Import (A Fix That Worked for Me)

There I was, looking at a folder in Lightroom (4.x) and when I went to import the files in this folder, I got the error message, "No Photos Found to Import."  What???  Here's the story behind this self-induced snag.


The other day I had about 1800 pictures in a folder, and I had split up the files into multiple folders.  After I did that, I synced my files.

Then, there were a select set of images I wanted to work on.  Rather than trying to find them in the mix of eight hundred images that I had in one folder, I moved them (In a different application) from the top-folder to a sub-folder.

I then went back to Lightroom and went to the sub-folder and tried to import and synchronize the images in there.

But I kept getting the "No Photos Found to Import" message from Lightroom.

Now maybe I did this to myself by stepping out of Lightroom and using a different application to move the images.

But what I did to get around this situation was that I went back to Lightroom, and synchronized my top-folder, then when I went into the sub-folder, the pics that I had moved there then showed up.

-

This may not work for most folks, because from what I'm seeing out there, other folks have different issues with the error message.

But if the images you are having a problem with are in a sub-folder, maybe you need to synch the folder or folders above it.

That's all I got for ya!
