It’s always a pain when Lightroom opens, it opens the last opened catalog. That’s OK if you just have 1 catalog, but when you have, like me, more than 1 catalog, it’s a problem. So either open Lightroom with the last opened catalog, wait for the opening and then switch or:
- On the Desktop, Press CTRL and double-click on the Lightroom shortcut, and you will get:
Lightroom: Select Catalog on Opening
And with that, you can either:
- Select an existing catalog from the history with the down arrow.
- Select an existing catalog by clicking on the
Changebutton and browsing.
- Create a brand new empty catalog.
