LR 4 Images disappeared
« on: June 16, 2013, 09:47:24 PM »

An odd thing just happened.  I imported some images into LR 4 last night and edited a few of them in the develop module.  Today I went back to these images and three of them were missing form the catalog -- no question marks, no place holder in the grid - just gone.  The files and the .xmp attachments are still in the folder on the disk, and show up in Bridge.  It's as if I removed them from the catalog (I don't think I did).

The question is, how do I get them back?

Have you maybe set a filter that does not include them or a collection ?

No, no filters set.  Somehow I must have deleted them from the catalog.  I'm having a mental block on figuring out how to get them back.
Thanks, though.

Synchronize the folder they are in or reimport...add.

Thanks to all who answered.  I ended up reimporting the missing pictures.  Then I noticed that a nearby stack of images looked a little larger than it should -- 3 images larger, as it turned out.  I accidentally stacked the "missing" photos with the other images.

In short -- MORON!

Some of the most interesting and useful things that I have learned about Lightroom sprung out of the silliest cock-ups you can imagine.
