Trying out PhotoLab 6: I have an external drive with a large number of photographs - something over 10,000. When I first browse this disk via the PhotoLibrary tab, I get the message “This folder does not contain any image.” I fired up PhotoLab 5 to verify that the photos were all there, after which I noticed that some of the photos were starting to appear in the PhotoLab 6 PhotoLibrary. Other folders continued to give me the message saying there were no images. If I open and close the parent folder, the missing images seem to show up. Other than that, I haven’t spotted a clear cause for this problem.
Here’s the sequence I’m following:
(1) Click on parent folder - “no images”
(2) Click on subfolders - “no images”
(3) Close parent folder in PhotoLibrary - images now show up in the parent folder
(4) Images also show up in the subfolders
I see the same problem on the MacBook’s internal disk, so it apparently has nothing to do with having an external disk or with having a large number of images.
I see that, when the subfolders are failing to show any images, PhotoLibrary displays them as if they had subsubfolders (with a “>” in front of the subfolder icon). The “>” goes away when I follow that steps listed above and find the images displayed correctly.
I’m using an M1 MacBook Pro, running macOS Monterey, Version 10.6.
