I have been using LR V 5.7.1 and today I purchased LR V6.
With the old version I was using several catalogs and decided to create a master catalog to use with the new v 6.0
Using v 5.7 I created a 'master' catalog in an external disk. I imported one .lrcat but there were several pictures the application did not find. I know where these files reside but I don't know how best to add these image to the master cat, and have LightRoom 'move' the file to the external disk.
Your help on this is very much appreciated.
Since the images have already been imported, there is no "find and move". That is two separate actions.
If you have missing folders, find the folders first.
Then find the missing photos.
If your Folders panel does not show the directory tree like Explorer/Finder does, right-click "show parent" until it does.
If you need to move a small number of files, LR can do that for you in the Library module.
If you need to move a large number of images, you are better off using Explorer/Finder to do the move, then "find" the files again in LR.
Maniac Joe - I understand the problem I was having - Thank you for your help.
