Lightroom :: 4.1 - How To Import Some Images From SD Card

Sep 12, 2012

I am using LR4.1
Just tried to import some images from an SD card (using a card reader) as I normally do and the import freezes on "importing files".  Before import the thumbnails shows and I have tried a different SD card.  Is this a bug?  do I need to re-install LR?

Lightroom :: How To Import Images From CF Card

Jan 15, 2014

I am a Canon shooter and a seasoned Lightroom user.  About a month ago my Mac stopped allowing me to import images from my CF card into Lightroom.  I have worked with Mac and Adobe to no avail.  At this point I know that my Mac can see the card and will me allow me to download images into iPhoto.  It will generate thumbnails in Lightroom, but will tell me that it's unable to read the images when I try a complete import.  If I switch users on my Mac to a dummy user, I am able to import the same images off my CF card. To my knowledge, I didn't changed any settings, at least not intentionally.

Lightroom :: All Of A Sudden LR4 Will Not Import Images From Camera Card

Feb 15, 2014

All of a sudden LR4 will not import my images from camera card, whereas I-Photo has no problem. I get the message " Some import operations were not performed. the following files were not imported because they could not be read (all images on the card are listed). I have re-downloaded LR 4 and restarted my mac (OSX 10.8.5). LR also will not let me import the same images from I-Photo , it gives the same message as when using the camera card..

Lightroom :: Duplicate Images Are Not Greyed Out On Import From Card

Oct 29, 2013

I tend to keep adding images to my memory card until it is nearly full. I then reformat the card for future use. I do this for a couple of reasons, firstly if any of my image or backup file fails, I've got the option of downloading the image from the card again. Secondly, I like to ensure that all the storage locations on the card are used equally, to even out "wear."
I download using a Sandisk 'Extreme' USB2 card reader. Opening the Lightroom Import dialog, I have the box marked "Don't import suspected duplicates" ticked. I'm downloading a card which has a lot of previously imported images, plus a number of new images. Previously, the suspected duplicate images have been greyed out and only the new images are highlighted and only the new images download.
Just recently, despite the "Don't import suspected duplicates" box still being ticked, none of the already downloaded images is greyed out and ALL the images will download. I haven't made any other changes to the program or preferences, so I'm a bit puzzled as to exactly what is going on. I now have clear the check box for ALL the images and then just select the new images for import.
I am using LR 4.4 with Windows Home Premium 64-bit.

Lightroom :: How Does Import Process Sort Images On Memory Card

Jul 29, 2012

It seems as if there is no rhyme of reason as to how the import process presents the previews to select for import. I did s shoot last night and the images are spread out over different areas between other photos that I took in the past. Shouldn't they just be sorted by image name so they are presented together?

Lightroom :: Importing Files From CF Card / Import Images On A Angle?

Aug 22, 2013

I have tested the card reader, another card (which also imports images on a angle), and importing images through Iphoto - incidentally importing images correctly. The images are fine viewed on the back of my D800. I'm thinking it must be the upgrade as I've never experienced this before.

Lightroom :: How To Load All Images From The Camera CF Card Directly Into Import Folder

Mar 21, 2014

Using LR v5.3 and Windows 8.1
For my particular workflow, I find that loading thumbnails as step 1 of the import process to not be of much value for me.
I would prefer to load all images from the camera CF card directly into my "Import" folder in Lightroom without having to first view and select images for import.
Step 2 for me would then distribute the images into other named folders in LR prior to the development, skipping the thumbnail phase of the process.
So, the Q: Is there any setting that allows importation into a selected folder in LR without first going through the thumbnail process?

Photoshop Elements :: Import Images From Memory Card?

Oct 25, 2013

My Canon digital camera uses a removable memory card which I then put into an Inca Card Reader. When using Photoshop Elements 11 and try to open the Card Reader to import images, the Card Reader isn't even listed among the various drives attached to, or within, my computer? How can I fix this? I want Photoshop Elements 11 to recognise the Card Reader so I can import the images.

Lightroom :: Delete Duplicate Images And Install Images From Digital Photo Card

Mar 3, 2013

Just installed Lightroom 4, more than 60000 images were imported. Many of them were duplicates, triplets and so on. I want to have a clean, unincombured library. Should I delete the 60000 images and reinstall the images from my photo digital cards or use the slow process of "X" out the unwanted images? I would like to start improving my images vs removing the unwanted images.

Lightroom :: How To Import Photos From SD Card Into LR4

Nov 11, 2013

I am having issues importing photos from my SD card into LR4. I have 319 pictures on my SD card and LR is only recognizing 283 of them.  In the Library module, I can see the pics that LR is not recognizing but they are greyed out. When I put my mouse over the picture it says "This photo has already been imported" but I never imported it. I did format my memory card right before my shoot if that makes a difference. I am using a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X Version 10.6.8.  I have tried to restart my computer, restart LR, eject the SD card then put it back in but it's still not working. I attached a screen shot

Lightroom :: 4.1 - How To Import Photos From SD Card

Sep 12, 2012

Trying to import some photos from an SD card that has worked in the past. First, I get an error "The following files could not be imported because they could not be read" with a list of all files. This includes files I've successfully imported into LR in the past (tried them as a test, since they didn't get caught by the "new" filter).
So I copied all the images to my HD and tried importing from there, and got a different error: "Could not copy a file to the requested location" for all files.
Settings: "Copy as DNG", "Into Subfolder: By date: 2012/YYYY-MM-DD"
I'm running OSX 10.7.4 and Lightroom 4.1 The files are a mix of JPG, CR2, and MOV

Lightroom :: How To Import NEF Files From SD Card

Jan 9, 2013

I have been using Lighroom4.3 for nearly a year now with no problems. All of a sudden, it refuses to import any of my NEF files from my SD card. I have tried all my SD cards to no avail. In the import window the files appear as thumbnails, but when I ask to import I get the message 'Files were not imported because they could not be read (3)'
My camera is a Nikon D3000.

Lightroom :: Can't Import Directly From XQD Card

Sep 3, 2012

I can't import directly from an XQD card into Lightroom on my laptop (Windows 7). The images appear in the import window, but I get the following message when trying to import: "The following files were not imported because they could not be read."  I can move the files over to the hard disk where Lightroom can import them but only by using the "Add" function. This precludes my adding the date to the file name and converting the files to DNG.   The funny thing is I can import them into my desktop, but it has less memory and an older processor which during the import often exceeds the memory capabilities and corrupts the image file.

Lightroom :: Unusable Import In LR4 And LR3 From Card Reader

Mar 11, 2012

Just upgraded my primary catalog to LR4. The LR3 import problem that started in ~3.3 or 3.4 has not gone away. Import effectively hangs the app.
I have a 6 proc AMD 1055T, Win7x64, w/ 16GB ram, an ATI 5770HD video card driving two monis, one 27" and one 24", and a ton of disk space (4 hd: c 384 free of 931, x: 191 f of 1.36TB, y: 1.55TB f of 2.72TB, z: 1.4TB f of 2.72TB). Free space isn't the issue. I usually do have several network shares connected; disconnecting them and removing all optical media makes no difference. My primary catalog has ~30,000 images When I try to import, the dialog itself takes up to a minute to open.

Eventually, the select source prompt appears; clicking on my usb2 card reader causes the dialog to disappear for a long time, sometimes > 2 minutes. The busy icon is displayed.If I'm super patient, the import disalog will open, but can take many minutes (3-5) to display, and once displayed, the busy icon remains and the dialog is not interactive for another long period, for example, right now, it's been > 10 mins on the 8GB card I'm trying to import from, import dialog visibility comes and goes, interacting with the scroll bar works, but so far I've only been able to scroll about half way thru the picture previews
This is obviously unusable. I've perverted my workflow at this point to be:

Copy images to temp folder in pictures hierarchy Sync temp folder, adding new images, without showing the import dialog Then, in Library view, I copy the new pictures to their final dest in my pictures folder hierarchy.
I just converted the catalog, so presumably it's optimized (optimizing made no difference in lr3.6 perf). As I said, this perf problem started in 3.3 or 3.4. ABout the only improvement I see is that I was able to successfully cancel the import; in 3.6 the app just stayed hung.

Lightroom :: Import RAW Files Directly From CF Card

Jan 4, 2013

If I use LR to import the RAW files directly from a CF card, there are preview images (but I don't know how to import and save to a different HDD yet so I am still transferring files with Nikon Transfer NX)), but if I use Nikon Transfer to move the NEFs to the HDD, LR reports that it can't read the RAW files.  I am using the same NEF format as what I use with ny Nikon D300 (14 bit, uncompressed) and LR will read those files.

Lightroom :: CF Card Reader For Photo Import Does Not Show?

Mar 19, 2012

In trying to import photos, first form a DVD and also from a CF card reader. The error message on my DVD says that there is an initialization error (OK, OK , the DVD with photos was created on another laptop, running on Windows Vista, so it may be a Read Only file). Aside from that, however, my CF card with photos does not even show up on LR3.
I have gone to System Preferences and changed the way I want CDs and DVDs to show. In both cases I changed it to "Open in LR3". Is that wrong?
Here is a Screen shot of LR3 Library when  tryingn to import photos. No (CF card) drive is shown.

Lightroom :: Doesn't See Images On SD Card

Apr 30, 2013

Just come back from a photo trip and tried to import my images into Lightroom from my SD Card and Lightroom doesn't see them, all it see's are the images I took on Saturday.
Today I arrived at my location to photograph Pasque Flowers, I took 1 image then realised I hadn't deleted the images from Saturday so I used the 'Delete Images From Card' in my camera's menu and then proceeded to take a few hundred images. During the day I reviewed my images several times, so I know they were definitely saved to the SD Card.
When I got home I tried to import my images in to Lightroom and all Lightroom saw on the card were the images I took last Saturday.

I tried closing down Lightroom and opening it again - nothing, just the images from Saturday!

I tried using the SD Card reader on my iMac - again, just Saturday's images were found.

I then put my card back into my camera and all I could see were my Pasque flower images from today.
So it seems my camera see's todays images yet Lightroom only sees the images from Saturday I had deleted via my camera's menu at the start of today.
Lightroom 4.4
iMac 27" 
Canon 5D MkIII 
Lexar USB 2 Card Reader
