    Changing location of my photos and backing up catalog on external hard drive Light Room


      I have recently come to a bump in the road with my photo editing. I simply do not have the space on my computer to continue editing any photos in lightroom. I have already begun to put many of my photos onto an external hard drive and then importing them into lightroom. However in this process LR has lost it's ability to locate my photos AND I still don't have enough room to edit on my computer!

      I am wondering if there is a way to save the catalog and all of it's contents and everything that has to do with lightroom on my external drive. I am under the impression that once I import a photo to lightroom I am essentially importing it to my computer as well.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      (ps. I use a mac)

      Thank you!
