The Activities Center in Lightroom CC

Hovering the cursor above of Lightroom’s Identity Plate displays a white disclosure triangle. Click on the triangle to reveal the Activities Center in Lightroom CC. The Activities Center displays the progress of background operations including Lightroom mobile sync, address lookup (GPS), and indexing for face tagging. You can manage each of these tasks independently.

• Turn on Sync with Lightroom mobile to sync collections with other Lightroom mobile clients. Only the collections that you have enabled (by clicking the empty well to the left of the collection name) will be synchronized.

•Turn on Address Lookup to have Lightroom look up new GPS coordinates to provide city, state, and country suggestions.

•Turn on Face Detection to have Lightroom index the faces of people in all of your photos. Note: if you enable this and let Lightroom index all of your photos in the catalog, then when you enter People view, it will load faster.

Right-click within Lightroom’s Identity Plate to switch Identity Plates, control which background tasks show in the ID plate area, and edit an Identity Plate.

How to Rename a Lightroom Catalog

To rename your Lightroom catalog, locate the catalog and quit Lightroom. If you don’t know where your catalog is, the default Lightroom catalog is stored:

Mac (user) /Pictures / Lightroom
Win (user) / My Pictures / Lightroom

If you have made a new catalog, the easiest way to find it is to select Lightroom > Catalog Settings (Mac) / Edit > Catalog Settings (Win), and click General. Lightroom displays the path to the currently open catalog. Click the “Show” button to reveal the catalog in the Finder (Mac) / Explorer (Win).

There are three files that you need to rename. They are:

(your catalog name).lrcat
(your catalog name) Previews.lrdata
(your catalog name) Smart Previews.lrdata

Make sure that you leave the space between the catalog name and the word Previews in the two .lrdata files.

Note: If you have no smart previews in your catalog, you might not have the (your catalog name) Smart Previews.lrdata file.
