Hi, I'm brand new to Lr and I will be going on a trip with my family soon. I have Lr 5 catalogue set up when I first loaded Lr. I created a new catalogue on my portable external HD which I will be taking with me. I've seen several different ways on youtube how to import this catalogue when I return. Most have the catalogue imported separately from the actual photos rather than just improving the catalogue and copying the photos. I use a year-month-date-title structure with subfolders for specific dates/events. Any help wild be appreciated. Thanx
Thnx Rick. I did look at that youtube by J. Kost several times. I guess it appears that most people bring their photos attached to the new catalog directly into their main photo file/catalog first, then do the import from another catalog w/o moving files.
Just trying to nail down the logistics to appease my OCD streak before I actually do this.
