Files are importing to wrong location

Dear community,

 

I am having a weird issue recently when importing files in LrC. It may or may not be the result of a recent upgrade to MacOs Sonoma:

Since many years I am using a library structure based on year, and a folder below on the topic:

Scherm­afbeelding 2023-10-21 om 09.05.00.png

For this thread I created folder 2023-00 to explain the issue.

I point to the same folder for importing from camera:

Scherm­afbeelding 2023-10-21 om 09.08.48.png

However, instead of creating date folders in the designated folder, LrC throws the files on a different location:

Scherm­afbeelding 2023-10-21 om 09.13.15.png

In my library the folder 2023-00 under 2023 remains empty, and it creates a new folder in the root. Until now I was able to use this workflow to structure my library and importing in the designated folder. Apparently something has changed. Anyone out there who can help?

 

Using Lrc 13.0.1 on a Mac Mini M2, using MacOS Sonoma 14.0 (recently upgraded from iMac late 2015 with MacOs 12.0)

 

Thanks!

Mariëlle

This is the 'Capitalization problem', explained here: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/capitalization-catalog-error/

Hi Johan,

Eventually the solution provided with case Picture not in library after noise reduction resolved root cause - reset the preferences. Used the capitalization trick for getting things back on the designated spot in the structure,

Thanks!

Edit: the files were successfully loaded in the designated folder on my Mac, with the date subfolder showing. The main issue is why it shows on a different location in the library.

Not really - exact same spelling.

LrC refuses to put the folders in the same structure as I did before (2023-01 ... 2023-27 are subfolders of 2023), the crisis started after the upgrade to Sonoma / LrC 13.0.1 ....

Yes, really. This is a common misunderstanding. The capitalization difference can be anywhere in the complete path of the image, not just in the part of the path that is now visible in the Lightroom folder panel. That means you often do not see any difference, but it is still there and it still the cause of the duplicate folders in Lightroom.

Hi Johan,

I did a few attempts today ... succeeded eventually getting the structure back by repeating 'Show Parent Folder'

Still I am wondering why the pictures were not loaded in the structure I had.

Thanks anyway!

Good to hear! And thanks for giving feedback. That always helps for other people who may have the same problem.
