Concerned that once I have Lightroom Classic installed on the new macbook pro, it won't be able to find the files. If someone could give me a play by play script for accomplishing this transfer I would be very appreciative. Thanks.

Using Migration Assistant to go from computer A to B?

You might not have to do anything, the 'links' from Catalog to images may carry over. But if not:


If you have all the images cataloged in one folder, it's very easy too, option click on the main folder, select "Update Folder Location" and you're done. Bottom line is showing LR where the folder(s) are from within LR itself, it will then recreate the 'links'.
