New to the site and looking forward to learning as much as I can about Lr5 and photography in general. Particularly composition.
Anyway here is the situation. I have Lr5 installed on my desktop and laptop. Been doing a bit of traveling and have ton of photos imported to my laptop from this trip. I would like to move them all over to my desktop without overwriting and files.
- Photos from laptop -> desktop
Do I export the laptop catalog and then import that catalog into my desktop? Do I need to also copy over all the photos as well?
If anyone knows a link to a good tutorial it would be very much appreciated!
Thanks in advance for the help.

If you Export As Catalog on the laptop, and select "Include Negatives", your photos will be copied to the location you specify for the catalog. You move all of that to the desktop computer somewhere (wherever you want) and then on the desktop in Lightroom use File->Import from Another Catalog
Sorry for my delay in responding.
This answer worked like a charm! Thanks again for your help and in future I will be quicker with my responses.
