WHen you first launch Lightroom 6, it should ask if you want to upgrade your old Lightroom catalog.
If that didn't happen or if there were more than one catalog, you could use File->Open Catalog and point to the Lightroom 3 catalog(s).
Upgrade a catalog from an earlier version of Lightroom
You can open, or import, a catalog from an earlier version of Lightroom, including a beta version, in a more recent version of Lightroom. When you do, Lightroom upgrades it. The new, updated catalog contains all of the metadata associated with the previous catalog and photos.
- Do one of the following:
- Start Lightroom for the first time.
- If you’ve opened Lightroom previously, choose File > Open Catalog.
- Navigate to the old catalog .lrcat file, and then click Open.
If you can't remember where the old catalog is located, search for “lrcat” in the Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac OS).
- (Optional) In the Lightroom Catalog Upgrade dialog box, change the destination for the upgraded catalog.
- Click Upgrade.
You can keep or delete these files.Regards,Tanuj
- old catalog.lrcat
- old catalog-2.lrcat
- old catalog Previews 2.lrdata
Thank you I try this later.
Have another question. Just purchase a Laptop and I want a copy of my lightroom 6 from my desktop on it. Can I use the same license to download the program for free.
What the action to take to do so?
