I have always had problems trying to import my pictures into Lightroom. I have read many articles on it and watched many tutorials, and none of them seem to work for me. I work on a Mac OS (El Capitan) and I use the Photos App on my computer. I take pictures for a living, and I want certain "Folders" from the Photos App to be imported into Lightroom so I can edit them, then I want them to save back in that "Folder" or "Album" in the Photos App. I am frustrated that there is no ways to do this and that Lightroom is so different than Photoshop and other elements.
If anyone could help with this, I would appreciate it greatly - thank you!
Well, you cannot migrate your images directly from Photos App to Lightroom like Aperture.
You need to export out your images from Photos App and save it on the machine somewhere, then Lightroom would able to see your images and can import/Add your images in the software so that you can edit them further.
Also, you can refer the discussion on the same: Re: How to import photos into LightroomCC from Mac Yosemite Photos app?
What you are trying to do is not really practical... you are attempting to use two applications to do the same thing simultaneously.. that leads to confusion and chaos usually. Both are database applications.
I strongly recommend you use either Lightroom or Photos but not both.
Yes Lightroom and Photos are very different to Photoshop. Lightroom is designed to work well with Photoshop where Photos has no such internal design concepts to work with Photoshop.
