What is an LRPREVIEW file?
File used by Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, an application used for managing and editing digital photos; stores a preview version of an image in Lightroom; can be extracted as a .JPG from a catalog's image cache using the "Extract Cached Images" plugin to replace original master images that have been lost.
Lightroom creates different size previews of original images. If there is a 1:1 preview available, the file can then be recovered as a JPG file, which will offer the same resolution as the original image.
The LRViewer application can directly browse previews and export them as JPG images.
NOTE: The "Extract Cached Images" plugin is only compatible with versions 2 and 4 of Adobe Lightroom.
