How to set your library as a system library:
1. Open the Photos app.
2. In the menu on the top, click on ‘Fotos’ and then on ‘Präferenzen’.
3. Under the ‘general’ tab, click on ‘Als System-Bibliothek verwenden’.
Note: if iCloud synchronisation is enabled, the selected library will be set as a synchronised library.
4. Restart the albelli software to see if the newly enabled library is recognised.
