Is there anyway of creating a custom splash screen for the latest iteration of LR?

I know there was with previous versions, but I can't see way of doing it with the current version.

Thanks :)

Appreciate the reply.

I'm using Adobe subsciption now so I have both LR's on my PC, but the one that I use is LR Classic (well I think its Classic as it is confusing!) its the one with the short haired lady with glasses on the splash screen *not* the one with the brown leaf on the splash screen.

Ok - if LR-Classic To be sure open Lightroom, go Menu > Help > System Info..., and the top line in the box will give you details.
And my post above will still be the answer. It is possible.

.I don't have a folder called splashscreen.
Open the {Lightroom} folder in File Explorer and create the 'New' folder within. Save the Splash image in this 'new' {Splash Screen} folder.
You can also find the path to the {Lightroom} folder by opening Lightrooms' Preferences, select the [Presets] tab, click on the button- [Show Lightroom Presets Folder...]
If you store your Presets "With the Catalog" then the Presets will be in a folder called {Lightroom Settings} that will be next to your Catalog .LRCAT file.

I have always been an 'Adminstator" single User, but I guess that each 'User' will simply need to create the Splash Screen folder with image as detailed in the link in Post#2 above. (Copy&Paste the Folder?)
