Hi everyone!

So, I have a catalog, create a few weeks, and today I tried to import new photos to him but wasn't possible as I expected.

When I select some pictures from the folder and drag for the inside of LR, my existent pictures (before the operation) disappeared. And the same occurred when I tried using the button "import".

Doesn't possible put more pictures in an existing catalog that already had photos inside?

Regards,

Gabriel Castro Fernandes

Yeap, I think that it's, by default LR import new pictures above existing files.But (for my happiness), if you put new photos inside the folder that you used to create the catalog, it's possible to sync and see these pics.For do this, go in folders and click with right button of the mouse in your folder, select "synchronized folder" and a popup will appear showing a count of new pics that you can sync in your catalog (images below).Thank you for the clear answer, was very useful Regards,Gabriel ...

I think the default behavior of Lightroom is to switch to the folder that contains the newly imported images. But if you go to the Library module and look at the list of folders in the left-hand column, I think you will see that all of the previous folders that you have imported are still there and available. Lightroom is just focusing on the new images so that you can work on them.

Make sure you are in the LIBRARY section, look to your left and you'll see CATALOG

Look under Catalog and click ALL PHOTOGRAPHS. All photos that have been uploaded that you haven't removed can be found here.
