Hi everybody,

In the same catalog the command "modify in photoshop" is active for some photos and inactive (grey) for some other photos.

Could anyone help solving this issue?

Thank you

Which exact version of LrC are you using?

What is the difference between the photos? Same source, format? Virtual? On-/offline storage?

Most likely the photos where 'Edit in Photoshop' is grey are missing. Maybe you did not notice that because you have smart previews for them, so you do not see the exclamation mark. Lightroom can edit such an image by using the smart preview, but it cannot send a smart preview to Photoshop. It really needs the original for that.

It seems you are right: using the function "show in finder" an error
message is shown for those photos having the "modify in Photoshop" grey,
while for the others it is possible to find their location.
Most probably I will need to rebuild the connection with the original file
one by one.
Thank you for your help.

Select one of the 'missing' images, use the context menu (Option-click): select "Go to Folder in Library" then once there,  just use the Synchronize folder command again using the context menu on that folder.

Synchronize folder is not the way to solve a missing image problem. It will hardly ever work, and if it does work then you may lose your edits and other metadata. Usually, images do not go missing individually, but their folder goes missing. For example because it was moved to another location, or renamed. That is easy to fix. https://www.lightroomqueen.com/lightroom-photos-missing-fix/

My bad; should be “Find” not “Synchronize”:
