Hi, 

I have been using adobe cc for a couple of years now, and only today installed Lightroom.

Now i have never-ever installed Lightroom before on this laptop, or even used Lightroom on any other device on my account. 

Although, i noticed something perculiar. 137 pictures in "All photo's" to be exact.  Pictures from a seemingly plumber located in USA who loves burgers it seems. Now i myself live in the Netherlands, how does this happen i wonder? it's quite amusing but weird. 

 

Thanks,

David

The only way that could happen is if you had a catalog from some version of LR on your computer.

Is this a NEW computer or new to YOU computer (A Used computer)?

LR Classic, and all previous Traditional version of LR, is just a Database program. No images are in the LR program and none in the catalog file. The catalog file is just a database file that the LR program opens. The catalog just has references to images you have imported. 

If you look at those thumbnails of the images I bet they have an Exclamation mark on them. That means LR can't find them.

 

The only way for a NEW install of LR to show images the first time you open it is for there to be a LR catalog file someplace on your computers hard drive.

Thought it might have had something to do with that.

Yes actually, it's refurbished from Leapp. 

 

Thanks for clearing up!
