moving to Lightroom forum
Locate your folder that has the original photos or files in it. The iPhoto library is now a package — it's still a folder on disk, but in order to view its contents, you must explicitly choose File > Show Package Contents in Finder (or you can right-click on it). Once you see the original files, copy them to a new folder making multiple folders with smaller amounts of files in them. Than try importing these smaller folders into LightRoom. Also I have also seen a issue where unresolved fonts has caused the problem. Go to your font app and validate the fonts and try removing duplicates.
Thank you Randy. I opened the package and see the MASTERS folders - there are many other folders and likely directories. I'm hoping by copying the masters folders that they will contain the indexing information for the albums into LR CC.
I also had an error on one of the libraries and many photos weren't copied from iPhoto library (I'm thinking the HDD went to sleep or computer, I have since changed the settings to stay awake) - however can I re-import the photos into the same file folder in LR and make sure not to import Duplicates? I'm thinking a few hundred out of several thousand photos did not make it into LR and trying to find best way to complete the import. Would using exact file folder work and exclude exact duplicates?
Appreciate it, David
While I was able to subdivide the MASTERS into small folders, it appears that the adobe LR PLUG IN can only recognize the iPhoto Package file. THe only way to import the photos once I opened the package and subdivided, was to import each individual folder (the plug in would not let me select the entire folder). . . so there must be another way.
once you copy all of the files out of the hidden folder into a new location, just one folder all the images in a different location than the iPhotos file. Than do a normal import from Lightroom, does this work? Do not use the original iPhoto folder but images copied to a new location all in one folder and do not use any LR plugin just a normal import, choosing add leave files in same location. Let me know
