How do I tell light room where pix are?

I've moved all picture files to a new hard drive.  How do I tell Lightroom where to locate them?

Your folders in the folders panel should have a question mark in front of their names.
Right-click the top-most folder in the folders hierarchy and select <Find missing folder> or <Update folder location>. Then navigate to your new hard drive, highlight the folder and click on <Select folder>.
Lr should then fin all sub-folders on its own, provided you have not changed the folder names or the folder structure.

  • "Volume not found" I have 3 iphoto_libraries stored in a external disk, while the actual files are in other external disk. Ive moved together iphotolibraries and files but: HOW CAN I TELL THE LIBRARIES WHERE TO FIND THEM NOW?

    I have three iphoto_libraries stored in a external disk PASSPORT (one for each trip imovie Im making -Ive managed this way the libraries so to not confuse the trips) while the actual files are in OTHER external disk LACIE. And everything was fine: imovie find each library, could work with it, or iphoto could edit the files.
    But one day everything crashed at the same time: i opened iphoto to find 3 different scenarios:
    1) iphoto_library GREECE was there, but not the albums i prepared. no events. when double click in any of them: "Volume not found"
    2) iphoto_library ITALY was there, and the albums i prepared too, but empty.
    in both cases I can only see the photos in 'photos'  because 'events'  shows some events with photo preview and some with no preview, just some kind of preset clipart palm tree, but if i enter the event, photos are there but again: when double click in any item: "Volume not found"
    3)  iphoto_library ISRAEL was there, the albums too, when double click in any of them: all OK
    The 3 libraries was managed the same way. Meaning: Ive imported photos to iphoto from external disk LACIE in a iphotolibrary stored in another external disk PASSPORT. Also: I don't have unchecked the option "copy to file" or something like that. photos where moved, not copied. Also i have all the movie_libraries in the PASSPORT as well. What happened??
    Solution? Nothing yet. Ive moved now all the photo folders from LACIE together in PASSPORT with the iphotolibraries but problem persist:
    HOW CAN I TELL THE LIBRARIES WHERE TO LOOK FOR THE VOLUMES NOW?
    "Volumes" are the original files aren't them?
    Please help. this is so annoying to try and find in the forum, to tricky to explain
    I have a Macbook pro retina Yosemite 10.10.1 / iphoto 9.6 (910-29)/ iMovie 10.0.6
    THANK YOU

    The 3 libraries was managed the same way. Meaning: Ive imported photos to iphoto from external disk LACIE in a iphotolibrary stored in another external disk PASSPORT.
    This is not clear, especially when you say
    I don't have unchecked the option "copy to file" or something like that. photos where moved, not copied.
    Especially as the message you're getting is typical of a library where the ' option "copy to file" or something like that' is unchecked.
    So it's a simple question:
    Are you these Managed or Referenced Libraries?
    A Managed Library, is the default setting, and iPhoto copies files into the iPhoto Library when Importing. The files are then stored in the Library package
    A Referenced Library is when iPhoto is NOT copying the files into the iPhoto Library when importing because you made a change at iPhoto -> Preferences -> Advanced. (You unchecked the option to copy files into the Library on import) The files are then stored where ever you put them and not in the Library package. In this scenario you are responsible for the File Management.

  • HT203167 I have just downloaded the latest itunes version (11.0.1). All my data cannot now be located, though the library is showing all the correct content.The data is stored on an external hard drive. How do I tell the library where to find it's data?

    The iTunes application should be installed on the system drive. You may need to repair iTunes to fix that error regarding a missing .exe.
    To organize your library properly see Make a split library portable.
    If you don't have a working version of the library that can be transformed into a portable shape I have tools and techniques that can repair the broken links.

  • How does one tell if the J2EE services are running with Unlimited

    How does one tell if the J2EE services are running with Unlimited
    security? We have applied the export Policy to the server but we do notsee any reference to it running with it. .we apply the Service packs SAP now upgrades that JAVA as well . Do that process treat the JAVA

    Just out of curiosity... Is there something you do
    like about Mac/Apple?
    To answer your question: no, not really. However, the points that I made here were about Safari and accompanying utilities, not about Apple in general.
    If it makes you feel any better, I am just as, or even more, critical of Micro$oft as the occasions arise...Windoze Vista is the most recent occasion and has given sufficient reasons and opportunities to vent my spleen that I actually have eased up on Apple, politicians, nut-case religious extremists, cell phone owners, and the Department of Homeland Paranioa, etc., due to an exhaustion of creative energy.

  • How Can You Tell if the URLRequest Variables Are Posted?

    Hi,
    This sounds really odd, because I happen to have three variables I am supposed to pass to an httpservice and have the results output to my Flex app.
    The problem is, I don't know how I can tell if a variable has been posted or not, because no matter what I do, it looks like my trace statement is accurate, but there is nothing shown on the screen.
    I tried changing it to GET, and then I get this IO Event Handler error, because my variables are so long.
    var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
            var url:String = "http://localhost/generic.php";
            var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
                variables.from= from_string;
                variables.state_colors = state_colors_string;
                variables.change = change_string;                       
            var encode:String= encodeURI(url);
            var pattern:RegExp = /#/g;
            var decode:String = encode.replace(pattern,"%23");
            var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(decode);           
            request.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;          
    I am wondering if my variables have been passed correctly. Is there some other way other than using trace statements?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the tip, and I have just done that with my php code end. It turns out that the file was generated, and the file is blank after the code has finalized execution.
      So, I guess that my POST variables is definitely not posted.
    By the way, I have added a couple of lines for security and IO checks, like you suggested, and here is the almost complete code:
    public function changeMap():void{                        
            var url:String = "http://localhost/generic.php";
            var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
                variables.from= from_string;
                variables.state_colors = state_colors_string;
                variables.change = change_string;
            var encode:String= encodeURI(url);
            var pattern:RegExp = /#/g;
            var decode:String = encode.replace(pattern,"%23");
            var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(decode);           
            request.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;       
            var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();
            loader.addEventListener(SecurityErrorEvent.SECURITY_ERROR, onSecurityError);
            loader.addEventListener(IOErrorEvent.IO_ERROR, onIOError);
            loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onLoadComplete);   
            loader.load(request);                    
             private function onSecurityError(event:SecurityErrorEvent):void {
                trace("securityErrorHandler: " + event);
             private function onIOError(event:IOErrorEvent):void {
                trace("ioErrorHandler: " + event);
            public function onLoadComplete(event:Event):void {             //event output                             
    From the console, the error events returned nothing from the addEventListeners.
    When I used GET before, they worked with two passing variables, but since my variables are now more than 512 characters, I cannot put this on the url, which is why I am insisting on using POST here.
    Have I done anything else wrong here?
    Thanks for your help.

  • How can I tell what Software Update Groups are members of Deployment Packages?

    I have a single SCCM 2012 SP1 CU4 server running on Windows Server 2012.
    I am trying to clean things up a little bit and I am curious:
    How can I tell which Software Update Groups use
    which Deployment Packages?  I don't see it on the Properties of either one.
    Thanks!

    Funny thing is that you can't see from the software update (in the software update group) in which deployment package(s) it exists. Your only options are manually comparing every single update (not really an option), or use PowerShell and do something

  • HT5557 How do I tell what PDFs and Books are NOT in a collection?

    I just loaded my collection of PDF articles into my iPad, about 600 academic articles.  I've been putting them into collections, but when I go back to the "see my PDFs" portion of iBooks every PDF I have in iBooks shows up.
    How do I show only the ones that are NOT in a named collection?
    Without being able to see what is not in a named collection I can't tell what still needs to be filed.
    Thanks.

    Start by showing all your duplicate tracks.
    View "My Music" in iTunes, then choose "Songs" in the upper right.  Then use iTunes' menu to choose View > Show Duplicates.
    Next, you can see what playlist(s), if any, each individual track is a member of.  Control click each duplicate and choose "Show in Playlist" from the drop-down.
    It will take a long time to do this for thousands of duplicate tracks, but it probably took a whole lot longer to get your library into such a state.

  • How can I tell which apps or programs are open at any time. At a recent visit to the Genius at my local Apple store, the "Genius" told me that too many apps or programs are running in the background. I'm using Mountain Lion on a McBook Pro

    I was told that my Mac has to work extra hard because there are too many apps and/or programs open in the background. How can one tell what is open?? It must be something which is not normally visible to the user??
    Hans

    Thanks, I have looked at that several times but I can't detect any one item which would indicate overusage. The small chart (indicator bars) are much on the low side and the onse which show are basically green? Not sure what the person at the Genius Bar saw so I'm somewhat puzzled.

  • How can I make it to where you are not aloud to delete the history unless you have a password? Public Fox does not work because they can simply go to "Show All History" and delete from there.

    Alot of people use my computer and I would like to make it to where you are required to have a password to delete the history. I tried public fox but you can simply delete the history by accessing "Show all history". So public fox doesn't work.

    Sorry, Firefox doesn't have a password feature for browsing history, and I haven't seen an extension for that.

  • How can I tell my apps where their Application Support folders are?

    Hi there- I thought I had this solved with an earlier post but looks like I don't.
    I just installed an 120GB SSD in addition to my 500GB HDD in my Mid-2010 MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion. I did the following things:
    1. Carbon copied my entire HDD onto the SSD (everything but the /Users and /Applications folders)
    2. Booted from SSD and changed the "user folder location" to point to the users folder I left on the HDD (in System Preferences+Users and Groups+Advanced Settings.)
    3. All of my apps showed up as brand new or were malfunctioning in some other way. I've figured that this is because they can't find their Application Support folders (which may be in the Users directory on the HDD) Upon seeing that my Apps didn't have any data, as in, they thought they were brand new, I moved the Applications folder to the SSD too. This doesn't solve the problem.
    4. I then set up a symbolic link on the HDD that points to the actual folder on the SSD. Still nothing.
    But the apps are all missing their Application Support files. My EyeTV thinks it's brand new and unactivated, my screen saver program is confused, Audition won't even open, and so on and so forth. My concern is not the " You are launching this app for the first time" message. I'm fine with that- I only care about the fact that none of these apps know where any of their files and settings are and I can't tell them.
    How can I make these apps (or Mac OS) know where all these files are? I didn't think I messed with too much...

    I justlokerd on my iPod and I can't find it eithr.  It does appear in the App store on the computer. The App store on the iPod will not allow you to purchas and app that is not compatible with your iod mode/iOS.

  • Re-installed itunes; now how do I tell the program where to find music on my external?

    I just uninstalled and reinstalled itunes. I keep my files on an external hard drive--but in 2 different folders on the same hard drive. Problems: 1. Itunes does not know where to find the files. I get a little exclamation point next to all the songs. 2. Only songs from one of the two locations show up at all.
    Less important, though still of interest to me: Only some of my playlists are showing up as well. I think I had two different itunes library .xml files before. And it is looking at the older of the two. Is that possible?
    Thanks

    Try restarting AppleTV by unpowering as well as restarting computer/iTunes and router.

  • How do I tell LR that my photos are now on a different disk?

    Hi all,
    I would think that this question might have been asked before, but couldn't find a solution that helped me out. I run out of space on my laptop and decided to move all my photos to an external drive and use that as an extension of my laptop to work on and store my photos. So I copied all my photos from my main disk over to the external drive, but I'm stuck as far as telling LR that it should from now on use the photos on the external drive rather than the ones on my laptop. I simply copied the contents of the Pictures folder on my resident drive to the external drive, therefore, it should be a faithful mirror of what is found on the residential drive. I was hoping I wouldn't have to import all those photos again at their new location but instead there is a way to simply point LR to the new directory?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi sundaydiver!
    Click the ? icon in the upper right corner of an image in Grid view. You will get a dialog box telling you the image can't be found. It will tell you the previous known location. Press the LOCATE button.
    Next you are presented with a Finder (Mac) or Explorer (PC) window. Navigate to where the new file resides. Make sure that the checkbox FIND NEARBY MISSING PHOTOS is checked. That should find them. If a few are left out just repeat the process.
    Generally, the higher up in the folder structure the image is the more this process will find.

  • How can I tell which Apple Security Updates are installed?

    While troubleshooting a printer issue, I installed some 'Extra' printer profiles from my OS 10.6 Install DVD. After which, I got a dialog box from the Installer saying that I may have replaced some newer items with older ones, and it suggested I run the latest OS "Combo" installer. Which I did, even tho Software Update said I was up-to-date.
    But apparently, when I ran the "Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1" -- it downgraded some of my Apple software to older versions. For example, I know for sure Safari was at 5.1.2 before I ran the Combo, and it's now at 5.0.5. Yet Software Update is not telling me about v.5.1.2, which it shows as already being installed (at a date prior to me running the Combo updater).
    So my question is:
    What other software might have been downgraded by the 10.6.8 Combo v1.1 -- and if Software Update thinks I running the current versions, how am I going to find out for sure?
    Obviously, I can check version numbers of my installed Apple software like iTunes and Aperture against the latest updates available at Apple Downloads, but I don't know how to check on background files like Security Updates, Java, etc.
    I am particularly concerned that I am running the latest Security Updates.
    Thanking you in advance,
    - gw

    "... There you will be able to see if a more recent version of Safari, etc. was replaced with an older version."
    Not exactly. That screen shows my most recent Safari update was 5.1.2 on 12/16/11 -- then it shows the Mac OS X Update Combined was installed on 1/2/12. That's when my Safari got downgraded to 5.0.5, but that detail is missing from the Installed Updates preference pane.
    It looks like once an update gets installed, Software Update remembers that -- but does not take the newer update off the list if an older version replaces it???
    So, even though I see Security Update 2011-006 was installed on 10/21/11, I'm not sure if the OS Combo Update replaced any security items with older bits. Is there anything specific to security updates that I might be able to check?
