    Are you saying that you drop the Luminar shortcut onto the iobit program? Or vice versa--the iobit shortcut into Luminar?

    Is there a way to completely remove all the database and other "related" files and folders.I want to wipe it all out for now.

    Luminar/Skylum--you need to allow the users to CHOOSE which folders/subfolders they want to catalog. Not being able to remove subfolder is nonsense. ALL of the folders inside the Pictures folder ARE subfolders! Go look at how Picasa works. Better crop and straighten functions in Picasa, too.

    Hi Jil! 

    Please note that you can choose which folders to add to Luminar. You don't need to add the whole Pictures folder - it is a default folder which you can change. As for removing subfolders, we are working on this functionality.

    When Luminar 3 starts it just starts adding all the folders within the Pictures folder into the catalog. There was no option to choose which folders to add. Again---look at how Picasa does it. Or make it so we can skip the catalog altogether and just use the folder structure on our hard drives/external drive or whatever.

    Not that photos do not stay in the same folders forever and any photo or folder that is deleted or moved should be removed from the catalog, not just grayed out (as some others have mentioned).

    @Jil Upon the first launch there was an option of choosing which folder to add to Luminar. You could choose any other folder, not only the Pictures one.

    There was no option to choose any folder--it all just went automatically with no way to stop it.

    So, what do I do next time I try to install Lum 3? Obviously, there needs to be complete instructions pinned and findable since so many are annoyed with the catalog feature.

    Thanks.

    Hi Jill,

    If you already went through the startup and added your Pictures folder, you can simply right click on that folder in Luminar and remove it from the library. Please note that by doing so, if you've made any edits to photos in that folder via Luminar 3's library those edits will be lost.
