.lrcat File Extension

Developer: Adobe Systems
File type: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .lrcat. Files with the file extension .lrcat can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .lrcat files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .lrcat file?

These are Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog Files developed by Adobe Systems for its software known as Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. This Adobe Photoshop Lightroom application is used to manage and edit digital photos. The LRCAT files or catalogs used by this application stores information regarding the images collected through this application. These files mainly store organized information about digital photos wherein there is a supporting data file stored with these files using the .LRDATA extension. LRCAT and LRDATA files use the filename’s prefix when naming these files when they are saved in a directory. Opening LRCAT files require the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom application, a program containing tools for the management and post production of photo images. This program is also used to view, edit and manage digital photos no matter what format these images are saved in. The creation of multiple databases is also supported by this Adobe application which can be run using both Windows and MAC OS.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4

Adobe Systems has added three interesting features to its Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4, which now allows users to organize and search for their photographs based on their metadata, such as the date and time settings from the camera and the location where the picture was taken. Whenever a camera with GPS enabled snaps up a photo, it also saves the geo-location data inside the image file. The 4th release of Adobe's Lightroom takes advantage of this hidden data to organize images based on geography and arrange them in a timeline. The new Lightroom also gives photographers the ability to brighten up their darkly lit photos and restore the balance between the light and shadows. In addition, photographers can now create portfolios dressed up as photobooks saved in a web-ready format that's quickly uploaded online and the link shared easily with potential clients.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .lrcat files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .lrcat. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
