As you work with folders and hard drives, it’s possible that images may move from time to time. For example, if an external hard drive is unmounted or disconnected, the folders linked to that hard drive will be grayed out. When you open those folders, you’ll still see image thumbnails and be able to set flags for the images. However, you won’t be able to edit or move those images while the drive is offline.
To bring these folders back online, simply reconnect or remount the external hard drive and LuminarAI will re-establish its link with the folders. Once reconnected, folders will no longer be grayed out and you can edit and organize the images within them as usual.
Tips for working with folders and images:
- To avoid breaking links to folders, move, rename, and organize any folders linked to your Catalog while LuminarAI is running.
- Rename master folders in LuminarAI and not in File Explorer *(Windows) or *Finder (macOS).
- Remember that relocating and renaming folders in LuminarAI directly affects those folders on your hard drive.
