I had all of my pictures stored on an external drive and then were flooded and I lost the drive. When I go into Lightroom now I can still bring up the pictures under the folders. The pictures aren't the best of quality but I would like to retrieve them for sentimental reasons. Is there any way to export them or save them?
That isn't a great user experience as original images are no longer accessible in Lightroom ,we're sorry to hear about this. Let us help make it right.
Which version of Lightroom are you using?
Sometimes lost or deleted photos in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic still display a preview. The following script allows you to extract and save those previews.
The script extracts previews for all the images that are selected at the time you run the script. It extracts poster frames for any video clips that are selected at the time. You can choose a location for these files. The previews are in JPEG format, and the name contains the size of the image
