How do i change the location of my lightroom catalog?

1. Choose Edit->Catalog Settings (Windows) or Lightroom Settings->Catalog Settings (Mac). 2. Check that you’re on the “General” panel. Click “Show” to go to the catalog in Explorer or Finder in Mac OS. This shows you where your computer currently stores your catalog and images. Be sure you remember the new location!

Why is lightlightroom asking for permission to upgrade my catalog?

Lightroom asks permission to upgrade your catalog when you first launch it after the new release has been installed. As many of us have our CC App set to automatically upgrade when a new version is released, this may be a bit of a shock, especially as the dialog says it’s not compatible with previous versions.

How do i clear the trash in lightroom classic?

Relaunch Lightroom Classic. If your catalog opens successfully, you can empty the Trash (macOS) or Recycle Bin (Windows). When Lightroom Classic is running with a catalog open, it creates a [yourcatalogname].lrcat.lock file next to the [yourcatalogname].lrcat file. This file ensures that there is no other access to the catalog in use.
