Restoring images and variants to Collections

    I don't understand.  It sounds simple but I cannot drop the image anywhere except All Images.  The program will not allow me to drop it in the one single catalog that I have created. How do I move it into my catalog?

    Same here. I can't move an image from the Trash to specific folder under "Recent imports", only to "All Images".

    Hi Igor,

    Thank you for the comment.

    Please, note that the Recent import folders are not the actual folders located somewhere on the hard drive, those are virtual ones which reflect the import history. When the image is restored from Trash, you can still move it either to All Images or User Collection folders.

    Hi Lily,

    This is clear. At the same time, you must agree, it would be logical and desirable to restore the deleted image exactly to the place from where it was deleted.

    A simple right click menu "recover" option to move it back to exactly where it came from would be so much easier! Like Lightroom.

    Hi Lily,

    How about if you deleted from disk? Is there a way to retrieve the photos? Either using a software like Stella or something else? I accidentally deleted 200 photos from disc and I am trying to recover them.

     

    Thank you,

    Hi Ian,

    If you deleted the photos from Disk, you can recover them from the Bin on Windows or Trash on Mac (if you have not cleared it before).

    Thanks Lily. Would it be under a special file as there is nothing in my trash and I haven't deleted anything for that specific reason.

    Hi Ian,

    Once you get 200 images deleted from the Disk, they appear in the system Trash (unless you have the option to delete the files immediately).

    It appears that 75% of your readers do not find this page helpful. I agree with them, and the concerns raised two years ago have not been addressed, which is another concern in itself.

    Also, the note that your comment that "the Recent import folders are not the actual folders located somewhere on the hard drive, those are virtual ones which reflect the import history" implies that the other 'folders' that appear in the Library are, in fact, physical folders, but most of them are not. They are also virtual entities created within Capture One. And there is nothing in the article that distinguishes what is a viable target and what is not.

    And Steven Grayston's point is an excellent one. What DOES happen to an image go it's accidentally deleted and the user attempts to UnDo that action? It certainly doesn't UnDo it in the same fashion as any other application I've worked with.
