Been a Photoshop user for years but I'm new to Lightroom. One really annoying thing is that every time a insert an SD card into my computer LR starts up and tries to catalog all the shots on the card. I don't want this but can't see a way to turn this off. I have Googled and seen a few suggestions that don't seem to work.
LR 5.7.1 stand alone on windows 7 pc.
Preferences > General: Uncheck Show import dialog when a memory card is detected.
Sorry, I was a bit to quick here. It's probably an Autoplay setting. On Windows, it's in the Control Panel.
Auotplay > Pictures - set it to Take no action.
No, you where correct. I found a similar answer just now on DPreview. Like the guy who asked there, don't know how i missed it. :O
Although on mine it's the same as below;
Go to Edit / Preferences and uncheck the " Show import dialog" check box.
Next time you insert a card, Lightroom won't fire up.
Thanks for the quick reply.
