I just purchased a new iMac on which I hope to bring all of my files from my old iMac. On my old iMac I was using Lightroom 5, but since I have a CC account I decided to use Lightroom 6 on my new iMac (don't know if this is the cause of my issue). I have a ton of edited raw lightroom files on the old iMac but when I bring them onto my new computer they are no longer edited. Is there a way to retain the 'edited' version of the raw files on my new iMac?
LR works non-destructively. So your editing work is stored in the database (catalog) and not in your raw image files.
So you need to re-link the previous catalog with the images.

Thank you so much!
