Some locked photos

Hi guys, I have a strange thing happening: Few photos in a folder are locked and can't be edited at all. They are marked with a round-shaped small symbol in the lower right corner resembling an eye (may be).
Can anyone tell me how/what happened here and what I can do to have them editable again?
I couldn't find any hint on this, so far, so I am trying now to get an answer here in the forum.

Thanks in advance for your help

The eye is a read-only symbol. One possible cause is that you run CO7 in DB mode, with supports editing of Phase One and Leaf backs only. Other file formats are shown but not editable.

Hi Paul, thanks for your advise and sorry that I need to keep asking. You are right with read-only, it's just another word for what I called locked. My Problem: I never run C07 in DB mode (at least not intentionally), I don't know how to get there and as I mentioned, only two files among many others in the same folder are on read-only status.

p.s. Meanwhile I found another hint:
"Note: JPEG files will have a read-only icon if the Enable JPEG Editing option is unchecked."
I didn't find out yet, however, where this checkbox can be found.

Edit > Preferences > Image [tab]

In the "Editing" section.


HTH.

Hello sfa,
I followed your description and found the preferences set to allow JPG-editing (not unexpected). That's my standard setting. Nevertheless I have these few files in read-only mode without having ever changed these settings. And I don't find anything I could do with these guys. I even can't erase them.

Can you do anything with them in another application. Can you view them using Windows for example?

Do you know how they were created?

Can you copy them in windows? If you can does Windows allow you to delete them.

Is there anything different about the Properties of those files compared to the other jpgs you have? Could they be locked by another application (or could they have been left in a locked state by some application no longer running?)

I have, although rarely, come across jpg files that were corrupt or had something in them that not all applications could work with.

Let me answer your questions to the extend possible:
1. The files were generated by Capture One 7 Pro: I downsized another JPG to send it out by mail.
2. In C1 I can see them, everything looks normal except that at editing functions (incl. Erase) are locked. A proper Read-only mode.
3. In Windows I can open it (e.g. with the Viewer), copy it and delete it. The copy made in Windows is read-only as well.
4. I can also open and manipulate the file in Photoshop.
I think that's all I can tell.
Cheers
Hartmut

Most interesting. And very strange. Unless the downsized file is somehow considered too small/low resolution for it to make sense to try and edit it in C1? A wild guess since I have no idea what size it is.

Maybe someone else has some experience of this sort of behaviour?

Wild guess indeed, but anyway thanks for your efforts.
The size is 1280 px in width and 400-500 px in height as a panorama, so that's certainly not the reason.

Hi Hartmut,

I have the same "problem" since Version 7.1.3. There has been a change in the program since that version and pictures with one size (height or width) of the picture less than 513 px are now read-only........you can't edit them any longer in C1. I don't know why they made the change but support confirmed it.

Thanks for clarifying. Doesn't sound very helpful, but just creates a lot of confusion. I also verified what you wrote by checking a folder in which I keep thumbnails for web-applications. They are small and all "READ-ONLY".

It seems the JPEG needs to be at least 513px or large at both the short or long edge.

I had the same problem with a JPEG downloaded from a Windows 8 Nokia mobile phone.

The short edge was 480px so I up-sized it in Photoshop to 520px but this didn't fix the problem.

I had also added IPTC data in Photoshop; Windows Explorer displayed them but Capture One 8 Pro didn't.

I have a similar issue with capture one 8, described here:

Could it be the same problem? My images are not that small though.
