trying to import from SD. LR says No photos found. Checking the photos on SD in the finder app (Mac) - photos are there, it works and other apps open preview. Trying to choose the destination to import - the same thing - shows my external HDs name, but doesn't show any folders in it like if it was empty. checking the HD if I can import from it (just to see) - same " no photos found". 1st thing it does when I open "LIBRARY" - opens 3 same folders Macintosh HD and all possible photos and pictures on it.
Previously it was perfect: start the LR, hit the LIBrary -> import -> opens sd card by itself and all the photos on it to choose which one to import. Also, I never hade a problem with the destination folder.
Thank you for help in advance. Can't work
Did you upgrade to Catalina recently? If so check that the access preferences are set correctly. Go to System Preferences->Security & Privacy->Privacy->Files and Folders and make sure they are set as in the screenshot below:
I am having a problem importing photos with Lightroom Classic 9.1. When I attach my camera (Nikon D750) via USB to my iMac (27 inch, late 2013 - Catalina 10.15.2) and select "import photos and video" the D750 shows in the sidebar of the import dialog but "No Photos Found" appears in the list window.
If I attach the card itself to the iMac via a card reader I see the photos and can transfer them to a folder on my desktop. The Lightroom Impost dialog still does not see them when pointed to the folder on my Desktop.
Through trial and error I determined that after running "Optimize Catalog" the Import dialog does see the files in the folder on my Desktop. It imports them all but shows an error that one file could not be renamed.
I checked the Security & Privacy settings and they are correct.
Any idea what is causing this and how it can be corrected?
OMG thanks. THANKS. THANKS. . Without this solution I had to "borrow" my wife's PC and fill USB then import. What a pain, but security is important. Thanks for the solution
Thank you! I just had the same problem after disconnecting my portable drive. This resolved my problem.
