Hello there! 

About a month ago, I bought lightroom. I used it for a while and then I realised that I cant re-import the photos that I already once have imported! I thought this feature is only for the lightroom 7-day trial, isn't it? If it is so then how can I fix this issue?

This has nothing to do with the free trial. Once you import photos into Lightroom, the expected (default) behavior is that Lightroom does not allow you to import them again.

 

You can go ahead and use these imported photos by finding them in the Library Module, and then performing whatever tasks you want (edit, email, print, etc.)

If you've previously imported the photos into your catalog why do you want to re-import them?

No. You import photos once. You do not import photos more than once. See my other answer in this thread.

"I just did file>import from catalogue."

 

Also not correct.

 

When you import files one time, you should not import them again. You shouldn't have to import a catalog either to use your photos.

 

You simply go to the Library Module and find the photos in there, so that you can use them (edit, email, print, etc.)
