Shadow images in Photos

Postby plumber » Sun May 12, 2019 12:04 pm

Mac OS 10.13.6 Photos
I have 500 photos in an album. Sometimes when I view them in thumbnail mode, blocks of them are merely faint shadows, barely visible. If I click on one, it will appear - but that's not very helpful when you're trying to views all to edit, etc. Screen shot attached.

That's usually indicative of either corrupted thumbnails, or a missing original photo. This often happens when people "manually" move stuff around in the Photos folder (on the Finder level) rather than using Photos itself to move things.
