Lightroom Error Building Smart Previews

Well, apparently I'm the first one who has encountered this because there is absolutely no reference to it anywhere I can find on the World Wide Web (no one uses that term anymore but it's technically more accurate than Internet here so I'm using it!) and whenever I encounter a situation like that, I like to write a blog post about it so that the next person who comes up against the issue can find at least 1 result when he/she searches. Perhaps no one will actually ever search for information on this issue because there is a sense in which how to deal with this issue is pretty obvious once you understand what the issue really is, but if you're seeing the error and missing the underlying issue, you will find this post helpful.

Okay, on with it: I moved all my photos off my Apple MacBook Air to my incredible new ioSafe N2 (I did this from within Adobe Lightroom 5 so that the Lightroom 5 catalog would be kept in sync with the move; I followed the instructions in this blog post and it worked great, if slowly, for me but I'm not claiming it's the only or best way to go about making that kind of a move). Then my next step was to create Smart Previews for all the photos so I still have access to a version of them when the MacBook Air isn't on the same network as the N2 (as that link to info on Smart Previews states, to do this you need only to "Select the files for which you want Smart Previews, and then click Library > Previews > Build Smart Previews" and so I selected all the files and Lightroom started building away on Smart Previews). At the very end of the process, this dialog box popped up:

As you can see, it says "Some Smart Previews were not built" and then farther down it says "Photos failed to build" and it lists out one lone photo for which the Smart Preview was not built. Not shown but also present in Lightroom is a new entry under the Catalog listing on the left side (the place where you can find "All Photographs," "Quick Collection +," "Previous Import," etc.) that is titled "Photos That Failed to Build a Smart Preview." When I take a look at the offending photo in Grid View, I see that in the upper-right corner, it has an error indication icon and when I hover over that with my mouse, the tooltip message "Lightroom has encountered problems reading this photo" comes up; if I look at the photo in Loupe View, it has a banner across the top indicating "There was an error working with the photo"; given this, it is unsurprising that further attempts to build a Smart Preview for the image result in the same error dialog noted above. But knowing that the real issue here is that there is a problem with the image (it's a corrupt image I suppose) the course of action is clear: remove the photo from Lightroom and re-import it (of course this assumes you have another copy somewhere; hopefully you either directly kept the original or you had Lightroom save a backup for you or you backed up the photos yourself or something). The way I accomplished that was to remove the photo in Lightroom then copy the original version of the photo to the proper directory in Lightroom and then I right-clicked on the folder in the Folders section on the left side and chose "Synchronize Folder" and Lightroom found the photo and then I told it to import it--and the cool thing was that at the end of the import, Lightroom presented me with a dialog box indicating it had created a Smart Preview for the image so I instantly knew all was well!

Keywords for search indexing: Lightroom Photos That Failed to Build a Smart Preview, Lightroom Some Smart Previews were not built, Lightroom Photos failed to build, Lightroom Smart Preview Error, Lightroom Smart Preview Build Error, Lightroom Smart Preview Building Error, Lightroom Smart Previews Error, Lightroom Smart Previews Build Error, Lightroom Smart Previews Building Error.

Air Jordan's Gravatar And some brands have taken Moncler Coats note. Zara recently partnered with the New York Moncler Sale Store City Ballet for its own ballet-inspired collection, made up of bodysuits, tulle Alexander McQueen Shoes blouses and mesh-heavy pieces. In Paris, statement scarves made a big impact. The act of giving a gift is Air Jordan Sale a rewarding one. Using the puffers felt unexpected, a break from the typical. The looks that worked then are drastically different from the trends that rule in 2022. Sure, it may not be the sexiest wardrobe staple in existence, but like an old friend, it's always there for you in times of need. Actually, I take back the unsexy part. These ranged from sci fi to subsea. The austere sweetness of Pierre Cardin's flat bows re-emerged, and designers like Jonathan Anderson and Hillary Taymour injected levity and movement into their collections with vrooming car bodies or form-swallowing fringe. Fresh Glow Foundation provides medium coverage for a flawless and dewy glow. Harnessing mirror-flat reflection pearls, it instantly enhances luminosity, while true-colour pigments create a radiant, natural-looking finish without hiding the skin. Enhance cheeks and instantly boost complexions Canada Goose Vests with this lightweight powder blush for a subtle healthy Moncler Sale radiance. The fine powder is ultra-blendable and buildable for effortless, mistake-proof application. Don't get the wrong impression, though. Knowles and Arsenault are lovers, not fighters. Sparkling mandarin, creamy sandalwood and comforting musk notes convey warmth and depth. From Virgil Abloh's final, posthumous collection for Off White to a return to the runway from fashion's favorite twins, and Jonathan Anderson's fifth collection of 2022, there's a week of festivities to come.
