I want to import a lightroom catalog from a macbook that is connected to the mac with thunderbolt. Versions of lightroom are identical and up to date. I get an error message that says I am trying to import from a new version of lightroom. the instructions in Support are not very helpful. Does anyone have any tips on how to import a catalog with all its metadata adjustments and keywords?
This means that the catalog you were trying to import was created by a version of Lightroom that is newer than the one you are running.
Exactly what versions of Lightroom exist on each computer? Please check each computer and provide the version number of Lightroom (do not rely on memory, actually check the software and do not they are the same).
Is it possible that there are two versions of Lightroom on a computer and you have opened the wrong one?
