I'm new to lightroom.
1. I'm on a Mac and cannot figure out how to import of export from the Mac Photo app. I'm lost.
2. I have managed to import some photos, but it is random, not in order, incomplete, and I have duplicates. I just want to just dump all the photos I managed to import and start again and import them form the Mac photo app. How do I do this?
3. I've been paying for LR for months and cannot figure out this simple task. I feel like an idiot.
Mac Photos stores your images in a Package folder. To have access to them you have to expand that package folder and copy the original images out and into some other folder that LR can access.
In Photos > Select images you want to export > Go to File > Export > choose Export or Export Originals. Follow the prompts in the dialog box to choose where to save your exports to. Once you've exported the files you can then import them into your Lightroom catalog.
