How do I move my edited photos into specific folders inside the Photos App. so that I can then send them to "Motif" of "Mimeo Photos" to create a calendar or book?
In Lightroom, in the Library module, over in the Folders Panel, Click on the + symbol, Select Add folder, navigate to the desired directory/sub-directory (folder), select it. Back in Library module, move the files from wherever they are into the folder you want.
David, I don't need to create any new folders, I need to move existing LR folders or collections into Apple's "Photos" app.
You need to export your selected photos from Lightroom, usually as jpegs, to the desktop or to a new folder/sub-folder. Then add the duplicates to the Photos App.
Select (highlight) the images in the Photos app and if you have already installed the Mimeo extension from the app store simply click the plus icon to the right of My Projects. The Mimeo choice should be listed.
There are NO Folders or Images INSIDE LR.
LR is a Database program that references your images from the folder they are in on your hard drives.
To get LR EDITED images into the Apple Photos app you first need to Export those edited images to a separate folder on your drive.
All Edits done in LR are store in the catalog file and NOT in or with the original image file. LR Never changes the original file. It just overlays the edits you have done and displays them On Screen.
To get those edits in an actual image, to Burn, Include, the edits into the file, for other programs to see them you need to Export the original to a New file.
Once you do that and place those edited, Exported, images in a separate folder then in the Apple Photos app you can import them, make your book and send it to the publisher for printing.
Apple Photos CAN NOT READ the edits done in LR. So the only way to get edited images into Photos is to first Export them and then load those exported, edited, images into Photos.
Can you help me
