  • If you do only have one set of masters (most likely case) which you have been using with Classic 2015, then I think the way forward is to open Classic 2015 library, export all your settings to XMP ...
  • Looks like what I said in my other reply is right, you have an old standalone purchased Classic and a new subscription Clasisic. How many sets of referenced masters do you have? one for each or are ...
  • I wonder if another explanation of your situation is that your two versions are Lightroom Classic CC and Lightroom Classic 5 or 6 ? What are the version numbers in the Apps folder?
  • This is the most surprising part of your post to me. LRCC has no modules along the top like Classic, and the import process is completely different. I have trouble understanding how you would not ...
  • You are one of the minority who took the trouble to research it for 30 minutes and understand the differences which, as you say, is not difficult if you put some time in. Most people (in this case ...
  • .... and if all devices are signed in to same Apple ID (I know you know this Andy, just mentioning to make the point for others, since it was big for me and wife)
  • Adobe did themselves a massive disservice with their naming and marketing strategy for Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC. Existing Lightroom users are confused about it, and how it fits with ...
  • Thanks, most of that link is much like I read everywhere else....sine wave definitely better and not much more expensive, so you may as well get it. As I said above I have some regret at not ...
  • When I bought my UPS recently I searched about sine vs simulated sine, and drew the conclusion that ordinary home computers did not need sine whereas more specialised equipment (medical, ...
  • I am encouraged that Adobe is still improving LRCC. I particularly appreciate the feature in the latest release to be able to store photos locally by album on iPhones and iPads, which save the ...
  • Interesting and a bit surprising to hear Andy. I thought you were happy with LRCC from your "two months" thread . I continue to be basically happy with LRCC but still keeping LR Classic up to date ...
  • I have that installed on my iMac, but it isn't really necessary as the OS has built in shut down options in the Energy Saver preference pane for shut down options when running on UPS power: Powerpa ...
  • LR5 to LR6 upgrade was available to purchase in the UK in May this year. I did it. Adobe make it really difficult to find the upgrade purchases pages. It may indeed not be available in your country ...
  • Not quite sure what you are saying but it sounds like what noirdesir said above....ie use Migration Assistant and manage it so the desired account is UID 501. Yes it would be simpler. As I said I ...
  • As you know Andy I am pretty much on a parallel track with you. I am also generally very happy with Lightroom CC after two months. The main single benefit being that, with my wife's phone signed in ...
  • That's interesting and very useful....I didn't know it worked like that and have not heard that before or seen it documented. I thought it took the next never used number. That provides a way round ...
  • True, but the only way to achieve his correct name user account with UID 501 is to erase the whole disk and start over.....or to do the more complicated UID change process. Erasing the whole disk ...
  • Thats another option. As you say there might be UID problems as his final correct name account will be UID 503.
  • Assuming you still have a clone or backup of your old computer, that you want to migrate from, you can always start all over by erasing the internal drive and running the full installer again, ...
  • It is and I agree with all you wrote. I posted that because John (to whom I was replying) initially thought you meant cloning direct from another mac which I would not do.
