Histogram and Smart Preview
« on: December 17, 2018, 09:24:36 PM »

Hi,

I often work on smart previews in my catalog - it's faster and convenient when I don't have the hard drive near by. Lately I've noticed that there's no histogram visible when I'm editing a smart preview. The issue resolves when I restart LR, but comes back on the next image. Has anyone else experienced this?

I build them but don't use them offline. I wonder if this is the issue?

If it says Photo is missing, that means that there’s no Smart Preview, and that the hard drive containing the original photo isn’t connected to the computer (or that the file has been moved and Lightroom doesn’t know where it is). There’s no histogram and you can’t process the image.

That's what they're for isn't it? offline use?
This is a new problem, I've noticed over the last few weeks (I update LR Classic CC when available). Prior to then they would always be visible.

Can't hurt to reset the LR preferences and see if that clears up the issue:
