Lightroom Tip - Relocate Missing Image Files
Occasionally Lightroom will display a preview or thumbnail but will not be able to find the original image file in the Catalog. When this happens you will see an error message like the one below:
In addition, the thumbnail of
the image will have a rectangular icon with a question mark
in the top tight hand corner. This icon indicates that the
original cannot be found.
If you click on the the missing
image icon a dialog box will open which will allow you to
locate the missing image file.
This is great for a single
image, but will become tiresome if you have a lot of
missing image files.
If this is the case you can synchronise any folder in the catalog in one operation.
See the previous Lightroom Tip on how Synchronize Folders for how to do this.
