I've gone through all the correct steps with adding a file and selecting my external HD and creating a new folder and every time it ends up as a file under my Mac HD and not as a separate HD in lightroom. I've imported files from the external HD to "my catalog" and it still won't show up. Please please help! Trying to move images from Mac HD to external in lightroom due to storage space issues.I have OS X version 10.9.5
Thank you in advance for your help!
Well, the best way is to move the images to the external drive manually without using the Lightroom. Once you move the file to external drive then create catalog in Lightroom and Add the Images straight from it.
And whenever you want import from the SD Card, you can directly import in Lightroom and set external drive as your destination for the storage.
Let us know if that helps.
