I have an Aperture library with ~70k images on a network attached drive and the Aperture library on my Mac. I would like to use this same setup in Lightroom.
When I use the importer it finds all the images, but it seems to want to copy them somewhere. Is there any way to just leave the image files where they are and create the library catalog without copying them to a new destination?
You overlooked the option. On the first dialog box, click the Options button and there's a setting for leaving referenced files in place.
Thanks John. I totally missed that Options button.
