Upload & Sell: Off
I have this habit of being paranoid of deleting files. After I flag my reject pictures I use the remove picture option. So I use the just remove picture instead of it deleting in lr. How do I get those back to really delete them? Anyone know?
If you had read the OP post he just asks how to get them back in to delete them!!! Clearly my way will work!!! Nothing was mentioned to separate them from newly added images.
So here is the easy way to fix your problem!!!
As long as there are no new images added to the folder, when you sync the folder all the images will show up in the previous import section in the catalog tab, just click on the previous import and it will show you all the images imported on the sync. If done correctly you should see all the images you just removed, then you press G to go to the grid library view, then select all the images and press X to reject them and then press ctrl + Backspace to delete all the rejected images. This will only work if there are NO NEW IMAGES ADD TO THE FOLDER AFTER REMOVAL OF IMAGES OR AFTER INITIAL IMPORT!!!!!! Always use the ctrl + Backspace to DELETE rejects, this will always delete them and not give you the option to remove them, simply pressing the delete key gives you the option to delete from disk, remove or cancel!!!
