Good tip and good advice. What I could do is start by selecting all my unprocessed images (the ones with no colour code) and update those to the 2012 conversion to see what happens. No harm done, then, as it would simply be as if I had imported them all into Adobe 4 the first time. I have to think about it before I take the plunge, but thanks for the tip and advice.

If you haven't processed them at all they'll open with the new process anyway. It's only after you've touched them that your work is set at the point you did it.

That I didn't know. You saved me a few hours of work right there.

I didn't know that either. I have imported most of my images into LR with a preset so that does not apply to them. I may have never noticed!

My processed images I could do one by one, or perhaps collection by collection, to see the effects (assuming that "undo" is possible).

It's easy to do that. Open the image in LR4; click the icon at bottom right and you get the new process (with your old settings translated to the new but not altered functionally). If you like it click "Done" or carry on working; if you don't like it click "Cancel" and it closes with the old settings. [These clicks are how ACR works in CS; if LR isn't exactly the same there must be an equivalent process.

LR4 has the icon. And you always go back in Develop module's History panel.
