I have a panorama with exposures for normal -2 +2, I imported the files to Photoshop and created one file for the under, one for the normal and one for the over exposed images.
I then tried to re-import them to Lightroom but the files are greyed out and I can't import them.

I unticked the checkbox ''do not import suspected duplicates'' but they are still greyed out.

Does anyone know why ? I'm sure it's just one of those checkbox issues.

Many thanks in advance.

I just figured out that if I rename my images ''irritating bullshit Lightroom'' I can import them but if they are named as shown in the screengrab they won't import even though I have unchecked the ''don't import suspected duplicates''.

Try removing the + , % and "." characters. Maybe Lightroom has incorrectly rejected them as duplicates for that reason, maybe not, but in general it's not a great idea to include non-alphanumeric characters in filenames. Sooner or later it'll waste a chunk of time figuring out why something isn't working or why something is missing.

Thanks that works (sorry Adobe) I changed out the + and the hyphen and now it imports. I guess that's typical to computers and nothing to do with Lightroom.

Thanks for helping.
