I was using Lr 4 on my old iMac then transferred my photos and the Lr folder to my new iMac. I installed Lr 5 and imported the photos but the edits won't show up. How do I fix this?
All of the adjustments that you made to those images are in the old catalog that was part of Lightroom 4. Adjustments do not get applied to the image files. You are image files remain in an unchanged pristine state. You need the catalog from the old computer. Since it's from an older version, Lightroom 5 will create a new converted copy in the appropriate format for Lightroom 5. Then you can discard the Lightroom 4 catalog if you wish. Here are some instructions for moving Lightroom to a new computer:
