Hi John... I used Adobe's DNG converter. I'm new to LR, but I don''t see where there are any presets enables. It's like the little files are missing to tell the image how it is supposed to look. When my EM2 catalog corrupted and lost 2,500 images, it also said some of the metadata may be missing from the other 22,500 images that were left and I should go check each one out... yeah right! It seems like the metadata might be missing from all of them. OUCH! They come in looking fine, and then as I scroll them across the bottom of the screen they go BLAHHH. How's that for high tech terminology?
I am importing the images from the "corrupted " catalog. I think I have to bring all 55 DVD's in from their offsite storage and use them to rebuild the LR catalog and replace the source files.
