It is not possible to import the images from Photos Library in Lightroom.
- However you may export the images from Photos and then import in Lightroom, if you want to import images from iPhotos, it can be done.
- You need to click on File > Plugin Extras> Import from iPhoto Library.
I just want to import a single image, not the entire library. Is there a way? This is always too complicated.
At present there is no plug-in for the new Photos App on OSX; only for iPhoto.
You would have to export versions from Photos to the desktop (or to a new folder in Finder) and then import those duplicates to Lightroom using "Add"
That will ensure your Apple Photos app doesn't get corrupted.
If you include IPTC metadata in the export keywords and descriptions should be available to Lightroom.
Then, you may export the image from Photos and then import it in Lightroom.
For a single photo simply export a copy from Photos, then click Import and choose "Add"
