When changes have been made to a referenced folder (such as adding new images to the folder through Finder/Explorer) 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.
NOTE: Only folders that are already known/imported into your catalog can be synchronized
- From the Library tool tab, select the folder that requires updating.
- Go to the main menu and select File -> Synchronize Folder…
Right/option-click the folder that needs Synchronizing and select Synchronize...
- Checkmark the relevant boxes in the Synchronize prompt and press the Sync button. Ticking 'Show importer' will then display the import window.
4. 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.
