Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Update old catalog versions, part of Cleaning Up Your Mess in Lightroom Classic CC.
- [Voiceover] If you have multiple Lightroom catalogs…that each contain a portion of your…photographic images, it's a good idea…to merge all of those catalogs into a single catalog.…However, before you can do that,…you'll need to make sure that all of your…Lightroom catalogs have been updated…to the latest version of Lightroom.…In this case, I'm working with Lightroom CC,…but I have another catalog that contains…some of my images, and that catalog…was created in Lightroom 5, and it's…never been updated to Lightroom CC,…and so before I can merge that Lightroom 5 catalog…into my current Lightroom CC catalog,…I will need to upgrade that Lightroom 5 catalog…to a Lightroom CC catalog.…
The process is very simple.…Essentially all I really need to do…is open that catalog in Lightroom CC.…I'll go ahead and go to the File menu…and then choose Open Catalog.…That will bring up a dialog and I can…navigate to the location where that catalog is located.…In this case, I have the other catalog,…my second catalog on another hard drive…
