    Hi Member,

    Luminar will connect to the existing photo library, it won't create duplicates of your photos. But it will create the Luminar Catalog. Luminar Catalog doesn't store copies of your photos, it stores previews (thumbnails) and the history of your edits. Luminar Catalog is placed in your 'Pictures' folder by default. 

    What you're seeing are the files created in the Preview Cache folder inside the Catalog. This folder has a size limit that cannot be exceeded. 

    If you see these copies of photos in the Windows Photos app, you can try the following: 

    1) Please make sure that you don't have your whole 'Pictures' folder linked to your Windows Photos app:

    2) Alternatively, you can move your Catalog to a different place that's not indexed by your Photos app and re-link it to Luminar.

    Here's how:

    • Make sure Luminar is closed.
    • Go to the Pictures folder (C:\Users\%username%\Pictures). If you specified a custom location for your catalog, search your custom location.
    • Relocate the Luminar AI Catalog folder to another folder that's not scanned by Windows Photos. 
    • Launch Luminar. It will prompt you either to create a new catalog or choose the existing one. Chose the latter option and navigate to the new location of your Luminar Catalog. 
      Open Luminar Catalog folder > locate .luminarai file inside > open it. 

    Hope this helps.
