Are you looking for to switch from Adobe Lightroom CC Classic to ON1 Photo Raw? Is there a workflow for migrating your images from Lightroom Classic to On 1 Photo Raw? There is. In this video, join instructor Robert Vanelli as he walks through the steps for migrating photos from Lightroom to ON1 Photo Raw.
- ON1 has a really cool tool called the Migration Tool, and what that's gonna be used for, is for Lightroom users that wanna make a switch. So imagine all the years you spent in the Lightroom, creating catalogs, adding stars to your images, and actually developing your images inside Lightroom. Well, you don't wanna lose all of those changes and all those years of work, so the Migration Tool is really cool, it's gonna take all that years of hard work you had and transfer all of that into ON1 to make the switch very easy and seamless.
Now here's how it works. So I'm inside Lightroom and I have my images that I've imported over the years, I'm gonna come up to the File menu, and from the File menu, I'll click on Plug-in Extras, and here's where the Migration Tool is, I'll click on it. Now, when the dialog box appears, I have options. The first option is gonna migrate any of the Collections I've created. And in this case here, we have a Collection called Football, Models, and Portrait, so, I'm gonna check that.
Now the next option, is creating a copy of the photos with the Lightroom adjustments. What this is gonna do for us, is any of the changes that we made in Lightroom, we had the choice of exporting those images as a JPEG, as a TIFF, or as a PSD file. So, what this is designed to do, is bake in the changes we created in Lightroom and make another file from it. Now keep in mind, if you're dealing with raw images, the raw file itself will not be changed, it'll just use the same metadata and the same information that we used in Lightroom as it will in ON1.
So, here we have a choice to actually create another file, and then from here, we choose which file we want. Once we have it set, we'll choose our color spacing, most people prefer ProPhoto RGB which gives it a larger color space, but honestly, I prefer the Adobe RGB, and I just find that this version here gives me pleasing results when I transfer these images to the Internet. You decide if you wanna go 8-bit or 16-bit, to keep the file size down, I'll select 8-bit, and then of course your Resolution at 300 pixels per inch is fine.
Now at any point, if you wanna learn more about this dialog, just click on the Learn More box. Once I have everything set, I'll click on Migrate, and it's gonna take a while for it to export a large catalog of all your images into ON1. Now, once it's done, it'll take us back to ON1, and if you notice, instead of Collections, in ON1 they're called Albums, and the Albums are identical to what we had in our Collections in Lightroom.
