Question about Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

1 Answer

Using Lightroom I can see the files in the quick collection but then I am unable to do anything with them. I get a message in a black box over the image saying that "the file named img_1234_jpeg is offline or missing". I have clicked on the ? to locate the file but it cannot be found. How can I retrieve the file so that I can burn to cd or edit?

The lightroom library, the quick collection, only shows a image of the file- basically a thumbnail. If you move a file that has already been imported to lightroom around your computer- say you take images from your camera and put them in a folder on desktop, then drag them to lightroom. Lightroom will then refrence those images to that folder on the desktop, if you move that folder to "my pictures" lightroom won't know they've moved. Though i think the ? option would have found them, not a 100% sure on that.
What may have happened is either the files have been renamed since being put into the lightroom library, or they were taken into lightroom from a portable device which you haven't got plugged in. Easiest way to find this out is to right click one of the images that is missing, and select "show in explorer" this will give you the file path, you'll be able to see if the image originally came from your hard drive, or a disconnected memory card- I'd suggest going to this folder outside of lightroom and having a look- your picture may well be there just renamed.

If the file has been renamed or moved around your computer, the easiest way to find it is to run a image search, in windows start menu --> search--->pictures. Check all the boxes so that you search the whole computer, go make a cup o tea cause the search can take a long time and will throw up anything that is in any way a image file. But you will hopefully see the image your after. If its there right click it and click open containing folder then you can put it back into lightroom.

If it is not there and the show in explorer option from lightroom told you that the image was on your harddrive means the image may well be lost. I don't know of a way to use the library image stored in lightroom to make a usable file that you can use.

Best of luck.

I have a problem with images on a memory card that don't download on to Lightroom, or are not visible after the import has ended. see more detail below. please help.


Instead of downloading the pictures using Lightroom, make a file on your desktop. Copy and paste all of your photos from the memory card into the folder. Open the folder and change your computer's Finder (Mac) or Explorer (PC) to the thumbnail viewing mode. If all of the files show up there, try opening them from there. If not, let me know and we will proceed to step 2.

How to open rim files


Hi Raymond
Usually the best way to open a file created by a specific program is to install the program that created it.
So for example you would not be able to open a DNG file unless you had a program like Photoshop or Lightroom installed.
Here are some more possible reasons for not being able to open a file
  • The correct program is not installed.
  • The associated program to open the file is out-dated.
  • The registry entry of the file association is corrupted.
  • The file extension has not been associated with the correct program.
  • The file is corrupted by malware
  • Usually installing or re-installing the program that created or plays the file will fix these problems (after you have scanned your computer and eliminated any malware) be very wary of any tool on the web that offers a quick fix for this problem, and always scan anything you download with a virus checker/internet security suite.

    Colour Problems in Photoshop Lightroom


    I did not solve the problem but am certainly not interested in your "group of unique experts". I was assigned an electronic and car audio expert to solve my problem who obviously had no experience at all in Abobe products let alone Lightroom. I could have asked my neighbour for free and gotten better advice. I trust the "guaranteed refund" will be reibursed post-hase.

    If it shows up in windows explorer as a drive, right click it and choose format and choose ntfs as the file format.

    Do you know what format it is when you use linux? I dont think you can use a dos command to format an ntfs volume. Your message probably means it cant read FAT or FAT32 because it probably already is NTFS file format.

    Unable to open e-mail attachment


    Open Files with .MSG File Extension Do you want to open a message with the Outlook .MSG file extension? The Encryptomatic MSG File Viewer makes it easy access Outlook MAPI message files (.msg files) created in Outlook 2000/XP/2003.
    MSG Viewer reads .msg files encoded in western characters. It will display the text contents of the .msg file on your monitor. You can also print the message, save it to a text file, and extract file attachments.

    Easy to Use Encryptomatic's Outlook .MSG Viewer is simple to use. It may be optionally installed as the default .msg file handler. This enables you to display a .msg file by simply double clicking it.
    Extracts File Attachments from Outlook .MSG Message Files
    Users can extract and save to disk any file attachments that were included in the Outlook .msg file, a useful feature not found in other viewers of this price class. To extract email attachments, just double click on the file attachment and save it to a directory.


    viewer-screen.jpg What it Doesn't Do
    The MSG Viewer is designed to give you quick access to an .msg file's text contents, file attachments and header information. It does not render colors, formatting or graphics, and it is not a full featured substitute for Outlook. With an RTF message with colored text and font formatting, the text will appear in black and white and the paragraph formatting will be lost (as in the message above). MSG Viewer displays only Western characters.
