Please follow the steps mentioned below
It looks like the permission issue.
I believe you are using the Lightroom 6/CC version of the Lightroom. Please go to this location ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe
The Screenshot is Attached Below, please check it for reference
Right Click on the Lightroom Folder and Choose Get info.
Un-check the padlock icon. Enter your MAC password, and give read and write access to all of the user name show in the Screenshot below. Also make sure that your user name is reflected in the box under sharing and permission, if in case your user name is not reflected in the sharing and permission box, please click on the "+" icon below and add it, give it the read and write access and close the padlock. close the get info window. launch the Lightroom
The screenshot is attached below, please check it for reference.
The same Folder is on two location in the mac.
please make sure to went to the user library which is hidden by default.
the path for the user library is ~/library/application folder/adobe
Follow the above steps mentioned it will fix the issue for sure.
However , it will be ideal to provide full permissions to main Adobe folder itself from both libraries.
~/library/Application Support/Adobe = User Library [ do not miss ~ symbol ]
/library/ Application Support/ Adobe = System Library
When you open GetInfo option for Adobe folder .
Make sure to click on '+' symbol , it will open list of user accounts. Add Currently logged in user account and Administrator user account, if it is not added .
Both must have Read and Write access to prevent these kinda issues in future .
Once you had added both Currently logged in user account and Administrator user accounts and provided Read and Write access.
Make sure to Click the Gear icon, and select Apply to Enclosed Item.
Lock and close the Get Info dialog box.
So that all folders present inside Adobe folder will get Read and Write access.
Create a new Catalog and try to open Lightroom and check,
I would suggest you to try the following steps :
1. Quit Lightroom
2. Open Finder : Click on Go - Go To Folder and type ~/library
3. Open Application Support - Adobe
4. Rename Lightroom folder to Lightroom-old (by GetInfo - under Name & Extension)
5. Launch Lightroom again after that.
Let us know the outcomes.
Now it works! Thank you everyone for the support!
