    Whatever happened to previews.db in Lightroom 5 Catalog Previews.lrdata?

    Judas Gutenberg

      In earlier versions of Lightroom, there used to be a file called previews.db inside a directory called "Lightroom 5 Catalog Previews.lrdata" , but in Lightroom 5.7, I see that "Lightroom 5 Catalog Previews.lrdata" has become a file (no longer a directory) and there is no previews.db. I had a plugin that needed to read previews.db in order to generate thumbnails. Now I don't know what to do.  (Rob Cole, you wrote the function that did this, and it worked great while there was a previews.db -- perhaps you know what is up.)  If anyone can point me to where a file similar to previews.db can be found (it has to be parseable by sqlite), that would be very helpful. Thanks!
