Hi - I'm a new Lightroom user (been an iPhoto guy for years). With the new Photos app on Mac, I really want to switch over to Lightroom now. My question is, how do I import my photos in their existing iPhoto folders? Is this possible? I have 10,000 photos - I don't want to have to re-organize the entire collection? Can anyone offer suggestions?
The LR plug-in automatically creates duplicates and puts them in dated folders or sub-folders.
You could export versions from iPhoto to the desktop or into regular Finder folders and then import those copies into LR using “Add”
The versions will then contain any editing done in iPhoto and if you include IPTC data in the export any info like key words or captions should transfer across to LR
