I have become quite proficient at editing in Lightroom, adjusting, retouching and exporting however I feel that it is becoming too much work to be fun and today I missed a dedline as I could not edit a previously imported photo. I have a large archive on my drives and was trying to create a wall calendar to give out to relatives as a gift, however it seems almost impossible to open up previously imported photos to edit them. Only photos immediately imported can be edited. I spent time online researching and was told to use the 'recent imports' but I have imported many hundreds and whilst I can see the photos in my hard drive, Lightroom is quite stubborn about allowing me to edit them. In desperation I used the capture the computer screen image as JPEG and used that. Yes, I am doing something wrong, missing some step, something in the wrong order but I really want an editor that will allow me to open my RAW images and edit them without protest. Also Lightroom seems to often bog down and I have to restart the computer. Thanks for any suggestion.
