Okay, I open Lightroom Classic just now to import a job I just shot and the Desktop folder isn't there. Not a clue what happened. It was there last night, it's been there ever since I've used Lightroom (which is a long time).

Anyone have any ideas? If I put the new folder of images in the Pictures folder it shows up in the Lightroom import window.

I've attached a screen shot of what's showing up in the import window.

Thanks in advance for any ideas...

Let me move this to the Lightroom Classic forum for you, where you are more likely to receive an answer to your question.

You may well have tripped over Apple's security/privacy system. Check whether you've given Lightroom access to your desktop as shown in attached screenshot.

 

If you don't see Lightroom listed then click on the '+' button to add, then check place a check in the list of boxes as per the screenshot.

Hey Ian,

Thanks for the suggestion. I checked and it's okay, all the boxes are checked for Lightroom. After I posted this I discovered the Desktop folder isn't showing up in my ON1 software either. I worked last night until about 11pm and everything was fine then. But this morning the Destop folder is gone in both Lightroom and ON1. Too weird.

I'm blaming it on Catalina. I've had nothing but problems since I updated to that OS.

Thanks for getting back to me, stay safe during these crazy times...
