Weird Duplicate Issue

Screen Shot 2020-08-23 at 09.35.28.pngHello, everyone,

 

Of recent, when I import new content into Lightroom, I see "greyed" out duplicates.  These are not images already imported so are not real duplicates. See recent screengrab.

 

Lightroom appears to ignore them (and thus only imports the ticked images) but visually these duplciates occupy twice the viewing space which is annoying.

 

Is there a simple solution to this wierdness?

It looks as if they carry the very same name. If "do not import duplicates" is checked, it only imports one of them and not both of them.

How comes they have the same file name?

That is indeed the issue.  I have no idea why duplicates upon import are being created.

When you say "new content", do you mean photos that you just took with your camera, or photos that have been on your hard disk that have not been imported?

 

Please include your screen capture in your message via the "Insert Photos" icon, and not as attachments. I do not download attachements.

Yes - new images straight out of the camera.

 

Screengrab now available.

So people don't have to download the image you have attached to your post please Edit your post to remove the Attached screen shot and Include it in the body of the text of your post.

You do that by Clicking the "More..." link at the bottom of your post, Selecting "Edit Message" and then use the "Insert Photos" icon in the tool bar at the top of the Post/Reply/Edit dialog box like this.

You could try resetting Lightroom's preferences.

Could you please describe your process of importing/moving/copying your images from camera/card to the PC?

I import via the Camera's SD card (source) with the import type set to COPY.  Within 5-10 seconds of this process, duplicated greyed out images appear and yet they've never touched LR before.

Please see my last reply on page 2 of this conversation. I'll copy it here.

 

Quote:

Are you connecting the camera to the computer directly or using a Card Reader?

Does your camera have 2 memory card slots? Do you have a card in each slot if it does?

If it does and you do are you creating Duplicates, Copies, Backups, on the second card?

 

Simply put LrC does not do what you are seeing with a properly installed and properly functioning LrC install.

I’m using a regular card reader and no, there’s no other cards in the
camera - it’s an EOS R

Many thanks
