Greetings

 

In moving photos from my Apple Photos library to Lightroom, is there a way to import/move them directly from one library to another? Right now when I want to do it, I export photos from Apple Photos, import them into Lightroom, and then delete them from Apple Photos so I don't have any duplicates.

 

For the most part, I use Lightroom to edit/organize photos and then Apple Photos to sync across devices

 

Thanks!

Thanks for this!

Actually, I had in mind moving photos a few at a time rather than
converting the entire library. I don't think what you sent has that in mind.

I think you may need to clarify which 'Lightroom' you are using!

Lightroom  OR Lightroom-CLASSIC   (You are posting in a 'Classic' forum)

The link given by Sahil is for 'Lightroom' - not 'Lr-Classic'. Answers would be entirely different.

I'm using Lightroom Classic. Basically, I'd like to move individual photos in my Photos library directly into Lightroom. Right now what I do is export the photo from Photos, import into Lightroom and then delete the photo from Photos. I'm wondering if there is an easier way. I'm not looking to convert the entire Photos library, just moving individual photos over.

TBMK (not a Mac user!) your method "Right now...." is the way.

Maybe this site may provide more info for you-

There is a Chapter-

B. Moving Album by Album in Photos to Lightroom
