Hi Folks. I'm currently using Lightroom 5. I am going to do a fresh update and install of Yosemite on my mac tonight when I install new SSD's. I am thinking of purchasing Lightroom and photoshop CC bundle and doing a clean install. Once installed, can I direct them to my copied/backed up catalogue from my regular Lightroom 5 catalogue? Or should I purchase CC now, import current catalogue then backup new CC and clean install?
I will be wiping all programs and installing from scratch so I obviously want to mitigate against too much upgrading/installing with regards to different version of Lightroom. Currently have my photos on external DROBO with the catalogue copied/backed up externally also.
Thanks in advance
Technically the CC version of LR is identical to the standalone retail version. It's merely licensed through the CC app. Therefore simply pointing to the existing catalog should work. Either way, ask for specifics in the LR forum. Issues due to catalogs being too large or files becoming unreadable or losing their develop settings are not uncommon and may require special procedures.
Thanks fro the reply Mylenium. I'll pop over there now and check.
Thanks a million
