I get the following error in Photos app on my Mac.
Missing File Photos with unavailable original files cannot be opened. The original photo “IMG_3076.JPG” is either offline or cannot be found. Click “Find Original” to reconnect.
This is what has happened, I assumed that since the photo is in the Photo Library I could delete the file from the hard drive. Apparently not. The reason I deleted the files was to avoid duplication and save disk space. When I right click and look at the info for the photo, I see that the size and dimensions of the image are same as the original file. So I am really not precious about the file being there.
So I have the following questions.
- How do I prevent Photo app from showing this error?
- Will I be able to export these files and edit them as normal?
