Hi all - can anyone help with the following please?
I'm using Lightroom Classic Version 11.3.
I imported some RAWs from a folder on my macbook pro and developed/exported themas per my usual workflow.
My changes were automatically writen into accompanying XMP files which can now be seen in the folder with the RAWs.
I mistakingly removed all images from catalogue - but did NOT delete them from disk.
Easy solution, or so i thought - re-imported the folder of RAWS (and assumed accompanying XMP's?) but now in Lightroom the develop settings i used have gone - sliders all back to default. So accompanying XMP's not 're-imported'?
So my question is - how can i restore my develop adjustments to the re-imported images - how do i get the XMP info back into Lightroom and applied? Is this not possible and do i have to start again?!
FYI XMP's still showing in the folder on laptop...
Ok so you removed the image files from the LrC Catalog and the edit data was immediately removed from the Catalog and quite likely from the xmp files since automatically write to xmp is active. Just my thought, however I do not write info to xmp in my workflow.
P.S. I did a test and the edits should have been applied at reimporting.
