Greetings Community. I think this is my first time posting here.
Having recently come over from Aperture, I am relatively new to Lightroom (should have been w Lightroom a long time ago!). My machines are macs, all running the latest OS.
I upgraded to Lightroom CC from LR5 and would like to get rid of LR5 and its attending files. I understand that Lightroom 5 doesn't use an uninstaller for macs, and we are to move the application to the trash as per usual. However, having consulted Adobe Help, I came to this page: Preference and other file locations in Lightroom 5
and it lists a bunch of places in the user Library where one might find cache and plist and preference and template files to manually delete.
For many of these, I understand, and it's as easy as following to the folders listed, and deleting. But in /Users/[user name]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/[preset or template folder]/[preset or template filename.lrtemplate], where there are numerous .lrtemplate files, I can't tell if they're from Lightroom 5 or CC (I don't have a Lightroom 5 subfolder within the Lightroom folder as many of the webpage examples suggest; mine just goes from Lightroom --> listing a bunch of presets folders). I'm fairly sure it's no biggie just to leave them be, but in the interest of keeping a clean house, I'm wondering if there's a way to know if all of LR5 files are gone - or updated.
Thanks for any help! I have another question but I'll start a new thread for that.
The Presets sub-folders are a shared resource between any installed version of Lightroom, i.e. in your case both LR5 and now LRCC would use them....so best to leave them where they are. Same goes for any of the sub-folders under users/library/application support/adobe/lightroom.
Very good. Thank you.
