Although source image files can be referenced anywhere on a disk with a Catalog, they are typically stored in a folder (which is then displayed in the Library). When changes have been made to a referenced folder outside of the Catalog, for example, when adding images using another application, the Catalog can be updated using the Synchronize Folder option. As the Import dialog is used, new images can be renamed, backed up, and adjusted automatically. Deleted or missing images may also be removed from the Catalog during this process.
- From the Library tool tab, select the folder that requires updating.
- Go to the main menu and select File -> Synchronize Folder…
- Checkmark the relevant boxes in the Synchronize prompt and press the Sync button. A new Import window opens.
- Select the images as required to add to the Folder and checkmark the options for renaming, backing up, and adding Styles.
NOTE: The option for updating folders is not available in Capture One Express.
