Hello there. I'm running Lightroom on a comparatively new Macbook Air, and all of my photo files (a mishmash of folders from old machines + Dropbox automatic uploads) are really starting to clog up the tiny hard drive. I want to (a) move my Lightroom catalogue and all associated assets to an external drive while (b) still backing up everything to Dropbox and Google Drive for safekeeping.
How would I go about doing that? I assume I'd start by de-syncing my Dropbox photo folder from my Macbook Air.
Ask in the LR forum.
You can move all the photos in your operating system and then reconnect in Lightroom via
Do not use this as an opportunity to rearrange your folders or photos. just move them in the exact same hierarchy.
