    I created a new catalog by mistake. So, how do you get rid of it?

    Bob, just find the catalog, by default it would be in My Pictures, I think, and send it to the trash. Don't forget the preview file as well if you created previews. There should be two files in one folder.

    Have you tried the 1'.5 fisheye??

    Bob, the catalog will be named some_catalog_name.lrcat. The preview cache should be right next door in a folder named some_catalog_name Previews.lrdata.

    Thanks- Geoff and Brad( I did find the folder under pictures)

    Geoff- no, I have not tried 1'.5 fisheye. I find that my 16mm have very limited uses- like the ice formations down in Antarctica.
