How to Move Lightroom to a New computer

You’ve purchased a new computer! Congratulations!  Now begins the much anticipated and incredibly fun task of moving EVERYTHING over from your old dinosaur of a computer.

If you’re like me, you have tons of presets and THOUSANDS of files in your Lightroom catalog.  One little mistake could mess up countless hours of organization, key wording, ratings, and edits.  This would guarantee instant meltdown.

Thankfully, Victoria Bampton has a terrific article on how to move your Lightroom catalog and presets to a new computer.  She makes a seemingly terrifying process simple and easy with no headache.  I needed to do this same option when creating a duplicate catalog on my laptop and wanted to save all my presets, edits, and hierarchy.  This article was a time, and life saver.
