I recently purchased a new computer (Windows)and installed Lightroom Classic. I have Lightroom 5 on my old computer. I have copied my Lightroom 5 catalog and images to a back up drive and moved them to folders on the new computer but don't know how to proceed from there to get them into Lightroom Classic.   Advic3 or guidanc3 would be greatly appreciated.

Double-click on your Lightroom 5 catalog. Lightroom Classic will launch and ask if you want to upgrade the catalog, you should say YES or whatever the affirmative answer is.

 

Inside of Lightroom Classic, you may have to re-connect the photos, follow these instructions (see Figure 4 in particular). https://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm
