As a complete Lightroom Beginner how to I import from the new Apple Photos (not iPhoto) into Lightroom? You did say there were no stupid questions. I'm excited to get started with Lightroom.
It's best to export versions from Photos for OSX to the desktop or better still put them in regular Finder folders. Your versions will include any editing already done (not available in masters) and the duplicates imported into LR will be completely separate, keeping the Photos Library safe from corruption.
You may be able to include IPTC metadata when exporting so that any keywords etc get imported.
I am attempting this right now and will update/complete this thread once its all done. Thank you for your advice.
i've attempted the same thing but my keywords haven't come across. Any idea if there's a way to fix this?
