    Catalog size is more than 4GB error?


      Hi Guys


      Apologies if this has already been covered, but I have searched the forum and not been able to find an answer.


      I've been using Photoshop for years, but I am new to Lightroom. In fact, I have only imported a grand total of 68 images so far, so I'm struggling to understand why Lightroom is telling me my catalog is more than 4GB. The RAW images themselves (on an external drive) are less than 1.3GB, and looking into Catalog Settings (catalog is on my MacBook Pro's SSD), the Catalog is showing as 5.24MB! The whole Lightroom folder with all the backups & previews is only 216MB.


      So can anyone shed any light on this (no pun intended)? Am I being stupid and/or missing something here?


      Any help would be much appreciated.
