Lightroom converted the catalog(s) but added _2 to end of catalogs and previews. Why did this happen? This happened to both my catalogs. Why and how do I fix it?
It happens because LR leaves the old LR5 version of the catalogue with its original name, but grabs its previews which it uses for the LR6/CC upgraded catalogue. Just change the names in Explorer, if you want to do so.
Update: Next time you open LR CC, make sure you open the renamed catalogue - easiest way is to double click the catalogue in Explorer.
So I selected the location while inside LRCC and pointed to the absolute drive named \\wirelessspace\my_photos_and_videos. Now I cannot remove the Y drive location. Why and does anyone know how?
Remove from where? In LR, in Explorer?
Remove from Lightroom. But never mind now. What I need to understand now is where is the Lightroom CC app link shortcut on my computer. I see Photoshop CC but I don't see Lightroom CC. I do see a Creative Cloud shortcut (icon) that when I open it gives shows open buttons for Photoshop CC 2017, Lightroom CC 2015, Experience Design CC (Beta), Project Felix, and Camera Raw CC. Is this how I have to open Lightroom now? If so why is there an individual Icon for Photoshop CC (outside the Creative Cloud launcher) but no Lightroom CC individual icon? What is Experience Design and Project Felix?
I have been using standalone Lightroom since version 3 as well as Photoshop Elements. I do not understand what all this other stuff is and how I'm suppose launch the apps. This interface is very, very confusing. Is there somewhere I can get an explanation of what happens when installing CC and what I'm supposed to see and how I am supposed to access it?
Do I need to keep the standalone 5.7?
