My photos will not appear on the left of the screen. Therefore I cannot import them into lightroom. I have a new mac so just getting used to it. When I click on photos my albums are they but the only option under 'Pictures' in the Lightroom table is 'Lightroom' but I have no photos there as I am just getting started! Help!
You have all your images under the Photos App on your mac, there you need to export your images out from the Photos app and save it to one specific location(either external Or internal hard drive), now when you browse that location under Lightroom from the import window then you would be able to import all the images in Lightroom.
