Here is the situation that I find myself in. While traveling I added some .CR2 files to an .lrcat on a laptop. Some of the pics were edited or deleted in various ways. After arriving home I took duplicate .CR2 files from a second B/U drive and imported them into my home .lrcat AND at the same time converted them to .DNG files.
It now seems that the .lrcat that was on the traveling laptop is unable to recognize the .DNG files and apply any of my edits. I guess this is because they are now .DNG files and not the .CR2 files it previously associated with.
Does anybody know if there is a way to get the edit info from the laptop .lrcat to recognize those same but now .DNG files and for it to apply the changes I had made when they were still .CR2 files?
