Hi all,I used to run my LR 4 through a portable hard drive on my old Mac book pro,I have now purchased a new Mac book pro and installed LR CC,if I plug in my old hard drive with LR 4.4 in it,will it transfer the library images into LR CC WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS,
THanks in advance,John.
If the LR4 catalog is on the external drive with your images, you are good to go. Just plug in the drive to the new computer, use LR6/cc to open the old catalog, LRcc will migrate the data to a new LR6 catalog.
If your LR4 catalog is on the old computer's internal hard drive, use the external drive to copy the LRCAT file to the new computer.
Don't forget to copy your presets and plug-ins to the new computer.
Just a note: your images are not "in" Lightroom, they are on your hard drive like all you other data files; your images are referenced by LR by path and file name.
