Dear Forum.

I need your help regarding Lightroom catalog and Photos migration from Windows to MAC. How I can move all my settings, presets, Photos catalog to MAC OS? Is there a step by step guide or a link to a post here in the forum? Any help appreciated.

I am new here so please be patient....

Thank you.

Please follow these instructions carefully and exactly: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/how-move-lightroom-to-new-computer/

 

Do not skip steps. Do not add in your own steps. Especially important: do not import photos on the MAC.

I have been using a poratable hard drive that can be read by both mac and pc. I just plug in drive to my pc and open LRC on a pc and it works. So maybe trying copying your LRC catalog and all images to a external Hard drive . Than try opening on your mac.
