I have images scattered across two external hard drives that I would like to use to assemble my portfolio. However, I'm not always in front of both drives to pull the required images from. How can I effectively move specific images from my lightroom catalog to a portable external hard drive so I might be able to work on my portfolio at a coffee shop or on the road?
You move the files in Lightroom, via drag and drop, onto the proper drive/folder in the Lightroom Folder Panel.
You could also create smart previews (Lightroom 5 only) so that you don't need to have the images attached on a hard drive to edit them
