Currently, I have all of my pictures on an external drive. I purchased a new laptop and there is a fresh install of LR on it - my question is: I want to keep the pictures on my external drive , how do I do that without importing all the pictures to my local drive?
Also, do I have to move the catalog to the external drive?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
It is better to have the Catalog on the main drive but you can leave the images on the external drive and reconnect them to the catalog, no need to reimport.
