…Lightroom uses a catalog file, which is essentially…a central database to store information about your photos.…That includes the metadata that was captured by…the camera when the image was originally created, as…well as metadata that you add, develop settings…that you've adjusted, and a variety of other information.…Lightroom provides you with some options for managing the…settings related to your catalog through the catalog settings dialog.…Lets take a look.…We can get started by choosing Edit > Catalog…Settings on Windows or Lightroom > Catalog Settings on Macintosh.…
Note by the way that there is also a button that allows you…to access the catalog settings dialog…directly from the preference dialogue as well.…I'll go ahead and choose Catalog Settings from the…menu, and that will bring up the catalog settings dialog.…This dialog is divided into three tabs.…The general tab, the file handling tab and the metadata tab.…We'll start off, of course, with the general tab.…And here, for the most part, we just have some information related to our catalog.…
