Is it possible to save photos from lightroom without the original file?

I recently imported photos into lightroom, but I did not back up the original files on my computer and they are deleted from my card.  The images still appear in lightroom.  Is it possible to save them from lightroom without the original file?

Your images are not - and have never had - in Lightroom, they are just referenced in the Lightroom database.

Lightroom generates jpeg previews of the originals, however, and you can export users export preview plugin of Rob Cole: - PreviewExporter.

To be clear, however, that are not originals.

  • The Photos app to download the original file?

    Download the original file, the Photos app, or it creates a copy of a lower quality?

    We need to know what you have and what you are doing - what operating system and version of Photos?  Photos will post what you say to-where you download and how? Download to FaceBook gives a totally different result than to download to iCloud photo library


  • Photos can not find the original files

    Since the switch to Photos for Mac, when I double click on a thumbnail to enlarge, a large percentage of my photos have a message that the original file is not found and gives me a chance to find the missing file.

    In iPhoto, where migrated most of my photos, I would simply store photos within the program.  As far as I knew, this is where the original file.

    What happened to my photos?

    Check preferences: Photos > Preferences > General:

    Is the option "Importing > copy items in the photo library ' enabled?  If this isn't the case, you have imported that cited such photos and they are not stored inside the library. Then you must not move or delete photos you've imported. photos will look these photos in their original location.

    Look at the Info Panel for the photo and copy the name of the missing file.

    Search now with FindAnyFile this file name.

  • Help! How do you get photos from Lightroom once the trial ends?

    Hi, I have been trialing the latest version of Lightroom and the trial period has expired... I've never used before Adobe products and I didn't know that I would not be able to recover the photos after the trial ended. The photos are needed for an assignment for Uni which is due tomorrow!

    Is it possible to recover photos? Thank you!


    As says Dorin, your photos are still there.  Lightroom does not modify your images, so they are always there in any format you've imported the.  If you do not use Lightroom, you can visit the changes to your images in Lightroom unless that, while you still have Lightroom:

    • You export the images (to TIF or JPEG)
    • In the Edit menu, settings tab's catalog metadata, you check "Write automatically changes into XMP", whereby cases, the changes are written to the XMP sidecar files, which can be read by ACR in Photoshop (or elements, I think).

    For you out a fix, as c.frans says, download the RC2 LR4.1.  To do this, no number of series but I think that it expires in June, so be sure to make one of the two options, I mentioned above before this date.

  • Is it possible to sync photos from iPhoto on the Meadow?

    I would like to use iTunes to sync music and pictures for the pre.  I can get iTunes to sync music.  I get to say it is sync had my photos from iPhoto.  I can play music on the pre, but I can't find and view photos on the meadow.  Any suggestions?

    To get iTunes to sync the photos, you must check the box "Include a high-resolution image" on the Photos tab in iTunes.  I think that this tab should be checked because otherwise iTunes creates compressed (reduced resolution) versions of the photos to record on an iPod and the pre can't view pictures saved in this file format.

  • Custom name - original file name works do not export, Lightroom creates the sequence jpeg instead of the original file number

    When you export from Lightroom with "custom name - original file name" selected, Lightroom replaces the original file with a useless jpeg sequence number. Export must have the custom, followed by the number of original file name.

    There is no option for Custom name + nameof the file.

    I would, with all due respect-

    If you "change" in the file name changes dialog box, you can set the change of name {Custom + file name}

    or Custom + Original file name!

  • photos from Lightroom will be not automatically open in Photoshop 13

    I have an iMac 27 "end 2012, Yosemite, Lightroom 5 and 13 items running. I have Photoshop Elements selected in Lightroom "change in" and in the Lightroom preferences, I have Photoshop selected 13 items.

    When I select a photo in Lightroom to open in Photoshop Elements (i.e. in Lightroom, I chose "Edit in"), PSE 13 OPENS but the photo is never there. I looked and looked in PSE 13 for the photo from Lightroom, and I'm not.

    Oddly, a copy of the photo appears in Lightroom in grid mode. Is driving me crazy! I can drag a photo into the components icon and it will open in the elements, but then I don't know how to get it back in Lightroom with changes unless I have enregistrer to save on my desktop, then drag in the Lightroom icon. I understand that it is supposed to work in a transparent manner if I do something wrong.

    Lightroom helps l_editor

    In step 2, you must make sure that you select the editor of PSE application and not the general application of the PSE or the request of the PSE Organizer. This document describes the exact details for PES 14, but the same goes for PSE 13. 99jon tech: Photoshop elements 14 as an External Editor implementation

  • When I export a photo from lightroom, the image is very pixelated.

    When I export a photo from lightroom, the image is very pixelated. This Burr occurs regardless of whether I do adjustments in Lightroom.  It seems that place just the photo in it develop modual without doing anything to it taints the image in such a way that when it is exported from the modual develop the export pixelated fate.

    There is a radical difference between these two images. Incredibly, export of Lightroom has been shrunk down so it has fewer pixels. This means that if you try to display them on a similar screen size, you will need to expand by zoom. Really just, which increases the size of the pixels, so pixilization. He looks exactly like its original size. I think you should just turn off the Image resizing option (uncheck the Resize to fit) in your export settings to get the quality you are looking for.
