Can you point Lightroom to the correct location via File > Open Catalog? It may then re-launch with the correct Catalog open.
If you know where your Lightroom catalog is, just use Finder to browse to that folder and double-click on it. Lightroom should open and use that catalog. Or, when you start Lightroom and it can't find the catalog and asks to use a different one, just browse to the folder and locate the catalog and choose it. Or, on the Mac, it would be Lightroom->Open Recent, and then choose the catalog you have been using.
If you have setup a new account, the only items that "transfer" are the Applications. Meaning that the local files for each user are stored in the relevant Documents Pictures Movies Folders etc
By default these are not accessible by other users of the iMac.
Log in to the previous account and go to the Pictures folder. Locate the Lightroom Folder and move it to the Public > Drop Box folder of the new user account. You will get a message stating that you will not be able to see the items in the Drop Box folder. Once they have finished copying you can log in to the new account. Go to the Drop Box folder and move the Lightroom Folder to the Pictures Folder.
Open the catalog by double clicking it.
That takes care of the catalog and previews. With respect to the images, if they were stored locally on the iMac they will need to be moved in the same manner. If they were stored on an external drive Lightroom should not have a problem showing them.
I tried that but the New User did not have the permissions to use the Lightroom catalogue. I had to copy everything to the new user and now everything is working.
Thanks so much,
