OK.....I should have asked this a LONG time ago. But ever since I got Lightroom (Was it this year?) I have not been ready to dive into the deep end and use it for everything. I don't want it to manage my library. I have a system that works for me. So everytime I put a memory card in it opens up automatically. I have to wait for that, and then I close it and it asks if I want to back up my library and I say no and it's kind of a hassle. And I have to do it nearly every day....sometimes more than once. I just checked under the Preferences Tab in Lightroom and no option for it. I am using a Windows computer if that helps you computer whiz kids help me. I'd love to just open it manually when I feel like editing an image.
