I would like to duplicate my lightroom catalog on a hard drive so I can work on my pictures on my laptop when I travel. I've copied the folder dedicated to lightroom on a hard drive, but when I open it on my laptop, half the pictures are missing. How can I copy my Lightroom folder and have my laptop Lightroom software recognize it?
I'm a little bit stressed out because I will be leaving for a month soon, and I still haven't figured out how to bring my photos and work with me!
you have to copy the Catalog file and all your images to the external hard drive. Place the images in the same named folders and you have to let LR know they are on the external drive. LR is no looking for them on an internal drive.
