Remove Missing Images from Adobe Lightroom, Deleting Images from Adobe Lightroom

I didn’t realize how difficult it would be for Lightroom to delete 15 thousand photos from the catalog and from my hard drive by itself till it died on me (not enough memory). Instead, I just deleted the images from the drive manually, and then had Lightroom remove the images from the catalog it can no longer find.

  • Delete the images on your hard drive. Lightroom should see them as missing now.
  • In the Library Module, right click on the Folder where your images are located. Collections won’t work for this. Select “Synchronize Folder”
  • In the pop up dialog box, one of the options is to “Remove Missing Photos from Catalog”.
  • Awesome.
