Hi, I have a Mac Pro 5.1 from mid 2010. Now I am considering changing to the new Mac Studio because I can not upgrade LightRoom on the old Mac Pro anymore. All my work is on one of the 3.5" HDs in the Mac Pro. How do I best move the photos from the HD to the SSD on the Mac Studio in the smartest way? Is it possible to connect the Macs through the Ethernet ports? I have about 1.8 TB of images.

 

For any advice many thanks in advance,

Arne Marco

Also, Lightroom Classic runs on a catalog database system. We have standard advice shared for when you are moving from one computer to another with video guides too, please check this :https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/catalog-faq-lightroom.html
