Adjusting preferences and catalog settings

In this brief movie, I want to share with you two more need to know shortcuts which you can use in order to access and change your Preferences, and also the catalog settings. If you're on a Mac, you can press Command +Comma, if you're on Windows, you can press Control+Comma, in order open up the Preferences dialog. Here we can customize these Preferences. For example, underneath the Import Options, I always like to turn on the option to Show the import dialog when a memory card is detected. Next I'll go ahead and close that, and then next, let's look at how we can open up our Preferences for our catalog settings.

To do that we will press Command+ Option on a Mac, or Control+Alt on Windows, and then the same key: the Comma key. This will open up our Catalog Settings, and again, here we can customize these. Rather than backing up my catalog once a week, I want to back this up every time Lightroom exits, so I will go ahead and choose that option, and then close this dialog here...
