    after i finish editing my photos i move them over to the folder with the rest of my raw files. for some reason i have had a few files recently give me this error.. and i cant move the file to the folder i want it in. if i click save as and type in a new name it will only save it as a txt file and it does not save the image in the folder i want..

    now i just tried to export them to that folder instead of just moving them to the folder.

    than i went to upload them to light room from the folder and i got this.. wondering if i have a bad spot on the memory card or something Fullscreen capture 10312015 62233 PM.jpg

    the fist error says... files already exist at destination..

    the second error says.... files appear to be unsupported or damaged.

    that 1935-4 photo has been a issue for some reason. looks like all the other photos went thew to the folder..

    i have a few other copies of it too. now there is a 1935.nef which is a blue heron but 1935-1.nef is a hawk.. not sure how that happened.
    i am wondering if i should just rename all of my photos to something else. not sure if that would screw them up or not.. lighroom seems kind of weired about that type of thing..

    but i was thinknig of going in and renaming all of my raw photos to something like this. if the file is 1950.nef i could just change them to 1950-444.nef that way if there is some sort of overlapping file numbering thing going on with my older photos and my new ones it should fix that but i am not sure if the photos will still work. i have not renamed raw files before.

    You should re-evaluate the file naming convention you are using and also re-evaluate the way your files are being stored. Instead of allowing overwriting of duplicate names, your software is appending the .1 to the duplicate name file.

    There are different ways to use Lightroom, as far as exactly how files are ingested; where they go, how they are named or re-named, etc.. Some people llow Lightroom to automatically ingest images as soon as a memory card is inserted into the card reader, and they allow Lightroom to work in its automated manner. Others, like me, MANUALLY transfer files from card readers into individually-created folders, using a simple date system, and then we manually "point" Lightroom to those folders, and manually drill down and then manually tell Lightroom to Import the files.

    As far as the file being partially corrupted: I have had that problem on multiple occasions, where ONE, single file will cause an issue.

    Lightroom is a regal PITA when files, or their folders, are re-named...this is I think, one of the weaker aspects of the app.

    i am guessing since i got a new camera body not long ago.. some photos from the new body and some photos from the old body may have some of the same files names. not sue what else is causing the naming problem which is not letting me move my files to the folder i want them in.

    i think the camera is automatically naming the files. i usually import the files from the camera directly to lightroom.. i do not care what my files are named. what is my best bet to change the naming system of my photos when they are imported.. picasa wont properly read my raw files. it turns all of them pink so i usually use lightroom to import the files to the computer.

    i have a few copies of that particular photo with the issue with slightly different file name. the one with the -4 at the end is now in the trash can.

    Here's a GREAT idea with Lightroom: never move the files!!!! leave them where they belong! Export the edited jpg images to a folder on the desktop, but leave the raw images where they are supposed to be.

    that is a good idea but every time i go out shooting it would create a new photo folder, i would have loads and loads of folders in no time and it would be very hard to find a photo i was looking for.

    i just found out how to rename a photo in lightroom, after i renamed the photos i was just having the issues with i was able to move them to the folder with the rest of my raw images...

    In the future, if you do decide to rename them, it would be wise to backup the files to an external.

    you need to read or listen to a video on importing files with LR.
    You can control whereever they go, how they are named and their tags during the import.
