Hi Guys,

it´s so long a go.... where do I find my stuff (presets, personal datas, lightroom settings, Photoshop settings) I need to migrate on to a new Macbook?

There must be a place where all these datas are, but I can´t find them. I am using Lightroom Classic and want to keep it. Other apps are Photoshop, Illustrator, In Design etc....

Thanks in advance, Ro

I need to make sure that all the essentials are backed up—the catalogs, photos, preferences, presets, profiles, defaults, plug-ins and any other related files.

You can use Apple Migration Assistant. You will need to reinstall your apps but you can move your data over.

Thanks! I just not want to carry junk over to my new system. I did that years ago and it didn´t worked out, hat to start everthing from scratch.... My old Mac is running 10.11. and I know there are many parts that are not compatible with the new M1. Can I still use the Migration Asssitent? Thanks!

Run it and don't migrate applications. Apple has help articles on what to do.
