Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Rename your master catalog, part of Cleaning Up Your Mess in Lightroom Classic CC.
- [Voiceover] Once I've merged my various…Lightroom catalogs into a single catalog,…I might want to actually rename my Master Catalog,…so that it's more obvious that…that is indeed, my Master Catalog.…I might have older versions of my catalog,…in other words,…catalogs that had been created…with an older version of Lightroom,…and I may have simply created…additional catalogs along the way,…and so, it's a good idea to make sure that it's very clear…which catalog is truly my Master Catalog,…now that that is my only catalog,…for managing photos in Lightroom.…
The first step of course, is to know exactly…where that catalog is located.…So, here inside of Lightroom,…I'm going to go to the menu and,…on the Macintosh version of Lightroom,…I'll choose the Lightroom menu from the menu bar.…In the Windows version of Lightroom,…you would go to the Edit menu instead.…In either case though,…you would choose Catalog Settings from the menu.…That will bring up the Catalog Settings dialogue,…where I want to take a look at the General tab.…
