I have LR 5 on my old computer. I just bought a new computer and will be subscribing to Photoshop CC. But I was wondering if there was any advantage or any reason to first install LR 5 and bringing over the catalogs, etc., on the new computer before downloading Photoshop CC.
Unless you plan to use LR5 on the new computer, there is no need to install it.
You can copy the catalog (.lrcat) over from your old computer, and CC will upgrade it, and you can also copy your presets from LR5.
Be aware that if that you for some reason want to go back to LR5, it can't read the LR CC catalog.
Thanks, Per, for the information. I downloaded CC and moved the catalogs, previews, etc, a couple days ago and I'm up and running.
