    No, find the folder in Finder, right click and choose Get Info. Look at the section at the bottom of the panel that comes up and check what it says about Sharing and Permissions. Compare that with what it says for a folder that works OK.

    Well, that would be my first thought as well, but since C1 won't load JPGs from the system's Desktop folder, that seems unlikely. Normally folder permissions block the ability to write to a folder, not to read from them. In my case, I'm just trying to import some photos! (And nevertheless, I did check and permissions are set correctly.)

    What are you import settings?

    Catalogue or Session?

    Checking for duplicates?

    Leaving the files where they are are referenced images or moving them?

    If moving, where are you sending them?

    There are quite a number of potential factors but none of the more direct matters that can I think of seem to relate to your particular 'strangeness' as described. (So far ...)

    Odd.

    -----"Inside Catalog"
    -----"Selected Album"

    ----- Subfolders and Duplicates are both unchecked

    -----I don't see an option for "referenced" or "moving"

    Interestingly, the particular photo I was trying to import last night was able to be imported when I moved it into the folder that "works". If I move it back to the "Desktop" folder it doesn't work.

    Is anything different if you export directly from Luminar to a folder that you have previously found to work after the file has been moved to it?

    Is it only jpg images that have been generated from Luminar that are problematic?

    Which mode of Capture One are you using - Pro or one of the Express versions for example?

    Grant - to answer your questions, all jpg images were problematic. Notice I said "were". After restarting the program a couple of times while trying to figure this out, imports started working properly again! And yes, I'm using the Pro version. This is just weird.

    I will admit that I'm a brand new user to the software, having converted from Aperture, so I'm still in the learning mode. Perhaps I was doing something wrong? In any case, for the moment at least, it seems to be working properly now. Oh well... I do appreciate your help. I suspect this forum will start to get a lot of use from me as I dive deeper into the program.

    Well, John, that certainly does seem strange.

    There will almost certainly be a logical reason if only one could uncover it.

    However if all is not working that opportunity may not arise - which would not be a bad thing at all!

    Glad you got it working.

    I am, if all else fails, a great fan of the concept of rebooting the systems a couple of times.

    Actually sometimes it's worth starting with that idea!

    It can save a lot of time even if not providing a satisfying explanation.
