    Can I create a new Lightroom Catalog just from previews?

      Hi,

       

      I've been working for HOURS on about 600 images in lightroom. Decided to take a break and work on 10 images of my kids. Imported images. Fiddled with them a bit. Exported to JPGs. Sent to parents. Great. Job done.

      Back to proper job.

       

      Reopen lightroom catalog I was working on before. AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!! it's just the 10 pictures of my kids, not the 600 wedding photos i need to get to the client asap!!!!!

       

      Help.

       

      I still have the smart preview folders and data folders, but it looks like the catalog's been overwritten.

       

      CAN I CREATE A NEW CATALOG JUST FROM THE SMART PREVIEW DATA?
