    I have a problem and have not been able to find a way around it. HELP.

    IF I have my camera set to take RAW images, and then I take a shot
    with one of the art filters. (OM-D) I get two images one raw and one JPG.
    JPG being the image with the art filter. They both get the same file name out of the camera E.G P7130480. In light room I can view the raw file (ORF)
    but not the JPG. I can however view regular JPG`s. (not taken together with a raw image)

    Then If I try to open the image from it`s folder with lightroom, lightroom
    says already in catalogue.

    How do I view those images?
    Is there a way for the camera to give different files names.
    Or is there some kind of filter in LR4 I`m not aware of? Filters are set to off.

    Cheers.

    Go to preferences -> General...

    And tick the box marked 'treat jpeg files next to RAW files as separate photos'

    Then you should be able to see both the RAW and jpegs of the same photo in the import dialogue box.

    got to preferences -> general -> tick 'treat jpeg files next to RAW files as seperate photos'

    You still probably won't be able to see the existing jpg files, so try reimport them. Any future imports will treat them as two seperate files at this point.
