I have photos I edited in a catalog. All editing are in XMP files. When I try to import these photos to a new catalog (import files not Import from a catalog) I cannot see the history of editing. Is there any way I can see the history in the new catalog?
At the moment in the new catalog I have only one line of history. Import/camera setting (data and time)
No. You'll only get history if you use Export as Catalog.
Remember that LR works best as a single catalogue, and you lose a lot of your work if you move files around with xmp files.
thank you. So where is the historical information saved?
In the catalogue.
My problem is that the old catalog got corrupt and nothing seem to be able to fix it
You will lose less, maybe none, of your work by restoring a backup of the old catalogue.
XMP is mainly intended as a way of transferring data between apps, not as backup. It holds slider values, keywords and other metadata, but you lose things like history, stacking, flags, allocation to collections. But a catalogue backup contains all the work you've done on your images.
thank you. That makes sense.
