You may need relink the files if the relative folder location, or the drive letter for an external drive, changes as a result of the move. Doing so using a hierarchy right screenshot is much easier than a flat list of folders left screenshot.
There are instructions on setting up a folder hierarchy here. Next, you need to make sure that all of the essentials are backed up—the catalogs, photos, preferences, presets, profiles, defaults, plug-ins and any other related files.
Click here for a full list of all the Lightroom files you need to include in your backups. For extra security, you may choose to write most of your settings to the files, in addition to your catalog backups.
You can learn more about the differences here. For LR5 and earlier, you can just download the latest update for your Lightroom version e.
If your license is an upgrade version, you may need the serial number from an earlier version as well as the current Lightroom serial number.
Most people use an external hard drive for the transfer, or a wired network connection. The process of moving your catalog cross-platform is exactly the same as moving to a new machine of the same platform.
You might find that there are question marks all over the folders or there are icons in the corners of the thumbnails—question marks in LR4, or rectangles with or without exclamation marks in LR5 and later. Those warnings appear if the original photos can no longer be found at the previous known location.
If the photos were stored on an external drive, but the Windows drive letter has changed, you can simply reset the drive letter. Otherwise, right-click on the parent folder that we created in step 1, and choose Find Missing Folder from the context-sensitive menu, and navigate to the new location of that folder.
Relocate any other top level folders you should have one for each drive , until all of the photos are online. There are more details on reconnecting missing files here. Double check that all of your presets and templates appear correctly, for example, all of your Develop presets are available in the Develop module, to confirm that you copied all of the files correctly. Finally, you might find your plug-ins need reloading as the locations may have changed in the move. If any plug-ins are incorrectly loaded or missing, add them again at their new locations.
Note that these instructions are for a one-way move, for example, moving from an old computer to a new one, or reinstalling your operating system. If you want to work on multiple computers, for example, transferring between a desktop and a laptop, check back for future blog posts. Save Save. Just pushed the button to buy a new computer, and was depressed about that thought of getting LR set up on it correctly and smoothly.
Thank you!!! I bought a new windows computer and took my old hard drive and installed it into my new machine. Now, my LR6 opens and says my LR mobile trial has expired. In Library, every thing seems to work. My files are all there, but when I select an image and go to Develop all I have is a pink or melon colored window. I guess I should reinstall LR6.
Pink or melon colored or any weird color, for that matter would suggest either a corrupted monitor profile or a problem with the graphics card driver. I am about to go from Windows 7 to Windows 8. My new computer uses a solid state drive for the operating program. I will see if there are any particular problems due to this change in letter of the drive. You are quick to respond. I had not thought of putting the catalog on the SSD.
That sounds like an option I really need to consider. As far as the hierarchy goes, though, I kind of like my hierarchy as is, for a few reasons. I have only nine top level folders showing in my tree.
I may choose to keep those as is, and not bring their parent folder into Lightroom catalog. If so, will I simply have to go through the relinking process nine times? That is doable for me, and I get to keep my hierarchy as is. The hierarchy step is to avoid people having a flat list of dated folders and having to relink each in turn. Your 9 should be no problem. Or you could add the parent, and then hide it again after the move. Same difference. I have performed this recently, and i have realize that, not sure why, i have lost flags for most of my photos.
These are the details: I did your steps, and all looks to be migrated correctly. I checked old photos flags and I do not see it, but, instead of flags I have a whit custom color classification for some of them.
I am still analyzing what could be the issue and not sure if it comes for the computer migration or the update from Lightroom 4 to 5. Hi Daniel. Is LR4 still on the old computer?
Can you confirm the flags are still on there? There are a couple of things that could have lost them. Importing photos afresh, or using Synchronize Folder could do it. Or they could have been local flags in LR3 — but they should be missing on LR4 too. White color labels are a very simple fix. You could check back on the old computer to see which you had selected.
I still have LG4 on the computer and I have checked that flags are there. The question now is how to move. Additionally I thing that I also have lost virtual copies, but pretty sure I also have on LR4 library. So the new photos that are in the LR5 catalog — do you know where they are? How long ago did you move computers? And have you edited the old photos in the LR5 catalog? Final question for the minute — do you use Publish Services?
No I am moving from the PC to a Mac. Checking this movement is when I realize that I lost things. At the beginning I thought it was caused by the computer migration, but it seems that are for the version upgrade. I will try to compare LR4 and LR5 libraries and try to determine. I thing that I did not edited old photos with LR5, in any case I would be small changes I can lost it….
Yes I use Publish services to flikr, in fact this is my next step, imagine if I would be able to re-link my published photos in case that I need to publish again. But by the moment I am more than glad to have my library ok again. Ok, great. That will determine which one we choose to be the source vs. And I was able to get most of them. Now I am doing an exhaustive check, and I will maintain LR4 application and library some more time on my computer, but this will take time….
Well done Daniel. There was one change between LR3 and LR4 that flags became global instead of local. Photos that were flagged in a collection are still accessible from the right-click menu for that collection. Hi… just found this thread in I have various Hard Drives spinning at the ready to access files.
So I get the C drive D drive etc. I even have several in FAT Hi Victoria. Thanks for the post — very helpful. I have one potentially very daft question. In accordance with the terms of the license, I understand you can use one copy of LR on up to two computers. So when you download LR from the Adobe site for use on your second computer does it simply allow you to do so without a prompt for payment? The reason I ask is I currently have LR5 on my laptop but am purchasing a mac very soon.
So you can download the 5. Hi Victoria, I just did exactly what Steve was talking about. I have gone to the adobe website to download LR5 onto my new Mac and it is prompting me that I need to buy or try there is no download or redownload button. You can still download LR5 and reinstall it with your existing serial number. I asked the the forum but I will here as well. I transferred from old mac to new mac with maverick. L4R looked fine and everything is there. Hi Catherine. If not, that would confirm a permissions issue, which is easily fixed.
I followed your instructions for transfer and everything went perfectly.
