    Importing from iPhoto


      i am trying to import 996 photos from iPhoto to Lightroom, but Lightroom is only importing 443 photos and not all 996, how do I fix this to import all 996?

          Hi Brandonv,


          May I know how are you moving your images from iPhoto to Lightroom?

            i was dragging them from iPhoto straight to Lightroom, I selected all photos and dragged the over. But the what I did was dragged the whole file directly from thumb drive and that uploaded all the photos into Lightroom. Not sure why iPhoto wouldn't, but the thumb drive worked.

              You can not directly import images in Lightroom from iPhoto.


              Please follow the steps mentioned in the below article according to your Lightroom version.

                That should work, thanks.

                      I am using iPhoto v 9.6.1 an importing into LR 7.2 on a mac running IOS 10.13.3  I have about 10-12T of photos stored over the years and just am getting into LR. I have iPhoto yearly shoots of 6K to 12K of photos - Is this what will happen to do importing of RAW into LR?


                      I import through the file menu of LR to import iPhoto data - that all works great, but then the import stops after 2022 to 2025 photos have been imported. I come back to my Mac mini after doing other projects and I have to use option command escape to shut down LR. Then I restart LR and go through the same import procedures. After 2000 or so photos imported, LR stops again.  This sucks.


                      I did beta on Illustrator many years ago and am in the PDX area - worked with the old Byte Shop stores, then Pac-Tell bought us and needed up with ComputerLand and Alpha Computers - set-up Fred Meyer with macs and then assisted The Oregonian and Willamette Week to be able to handle the graphics. Did similar work with Boeing in Everett, WA - so am quite skilled - though older now. What is happening?


                      Mac mini is a 2.6GHz with 16G ram - with 2 (1T internal drives) - did have a 2.7 but it died. Please let me know if I am doing something wrong, or there is a buffer - sort of like when Mac first arrived on the scene and appletalk networks were limited to 256 nodes - anything more and those nodes would appear and then disappear (when laserwriters first came about). Was fun, then, but now am a semipro photographer in my retirement!


                      Need some Help, please.
