Do you have a backup copy that can be restored that includes the wedding pictures?
everytime I go to open the lightroom 5, a message keeps coming up saying Lightroom catalog named "lightroom 5 catalog" cannot be opened because it is not valid. Would you like to select a different catalog ?
The catalog Is not recognized as a valid catalog.
I I need help ASAP ! Trying to edit wedding photos !
Sounds it might be a problem with the .lock and .journal files. Go to the directory where your catalog file is, assuming you are using default catalog names, and if you see either of these two files delete them:
1. Lightroom 5.lrcat.lock
2. Lightroom 5.lrcat-journal
Hopefully that is all the issue is and you don't have to go to a previous backup.
mine doesn't say either Well it says the first 1
BBut doesn't have the lock part on the end
What do you mean by that ?
Jim means that if you're a professional, you should have a comprehensive back-up strategy in place - of images and catalogues - to ensure that you don't let your paying clients down.
I Just want to get into lightroom, I have all my photos still it just won't let me on.
