Hello Everyone, I recently bought the new Macbook Air and I would like to keep working with the same catalog that I used to work in my previous computer. The problem, I haven´t syncronize the whole time machine, icloud, files, in this new Mac... so I just want to get the catalog from Lightroom into this new computer and continue my work in lightroom... 
What do I need to do in my old computer to back up the work done and then import that into the new one. Please step by step. thanks.

In addition to the link at lightroomqueen.com given by @JohanElzenga , I point out that there is no importing needed (you don't need to and should not import the photos, and you don't need to import the catalog) No matter how tempted you might be to do some sort of importing, resist the temptation. Follow the instructions.
