  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Lightroom CC version: 2.2 [ 20190204-1600-e7ae188 ] (Feb 4 2019)
Operating System
Windows 10
I have installed Creative Cloud on an additional PC and the installation appeared to be fine.

I've opened and used Photoshop - all good.

I've opened Lightroom and I can't add any photos and there's nothing in the library - everything is greyed out. I've uninstalled and re-installed LR but it's made no difference. I've reset preferences too, but same applies.

Help would be most appreciated.

Regards.

Which lightroom have you installed? Cc or Classic CC? If the latter, the behaviour is all normal, because you have to access the same catalog (and preview files) that was on the other machine in order to see these photos.

If you are using LRCC then you should be able to see all the photos as in the old installation.

What is your workflow? What are you attempting to achieve with the second installation?

Hi Davco, welcome to the forum! Can you tell us a bit more about what you can see?
