Holding the Option (Mac) | Control (Win) key when launching Lightroom will display the “Select Catalog” dialog box which allows you to choose to open recent catalogs, choose a different catalog, or create a new catalog.
Thanks a lot. great post!
Julieanne, a question regarding catalogs. I have catalogs according years – 2010, 2011. But as practice showed if I need to include pictures from both of them to the same project I cannot create a smart collection for this project since the images are in different catalogs.
What would you recommend?
Because I also need to search through multiple years of photographs, I keep all of my images in a single catalog. That is the current solution.
