Just tried to transfer photos but its not working I've managed to transfer my presets but don't know what i'm doing wrong with my photos?? I have watched http://tv.adobe.com/watch/the-complete-picture-with-julieanne-kost/how-to-migrate-lr-to-an other-computer/ but still no luck. any suggestions are much appreciated
Which method are you following exactly?
- Are Pictures missing From Your Lightroom catalog?If so.
Check this by selecting Library(menu bar)>>Find all missing photos
You will then know the Pictures that are not going to get copied over until you locate them..
Then Locate these Pictures Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Help | Locate missing photos
I went into my old computer lightroom and found the location of my catalog in edit- catalog settings- then clicked show to find the lightroom catalog.lrcat then copied the lightroom file onto my external hard drive. then went to my new laptop and found the file and copied it to the same location. then when i went to lightroom nothing was changed. sorry I'm a bit confused as to what im doing wrong
copied it to the same location. then when i went to lightroom nothing was changed. sorry I'm a bit confused as to what im doing wrong
I hope you did copied the Lightroom Catalog (the one with .Lrcat extension.)
Once coped and pasted over to new computer .
You need to open the catalog you pasted to see its contents
Hope that helps
