Can I transfer catalogs as well as edits when moving lrcat file to new computer?
The lrcat file is the catalog.
Before you move your photos and the catalog to a new computer, read this: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/2009/02/28/how-do-i-move-lightroom-to-a- new-computer/
PS: There have been some reports that Lr looses images when you move folders in Lr.
Therefore I would recommend that you choose the option of moving your image folders via your OS (Mac Finder / Win Explorer) and thereafter re-link Lr to the new location. Victoria Brampton covers both options in the link above.
