I used Creative cloud to reinstalling LR + Ps onto my new laptop.

Do I loose all the work I did onto my old PC?

I install using my codes creative cloud. Is there a way to transfert the work, collections, etc., I did in my old computer?

 

Thank you for your input!!!

Hi Louis-Martin,

 

No more than installing Word on a new machine would cause you to lose all of your Word documents. So you are in good shape. 

 

However, you will need to move your images and catalog over to the new machine. 

 

Here's one video for that

Louis-Martin, one quick thing: I noticed that you said you had LR-4. I also see that you installed LR & PS on your new computer: Was that LR or LR-Classic you installed as there are multiple different versions of LR.

 

If you're not sure, please read this before you get too busy:

Also note that if you sign up for her email you can download a free ebook that will do you well since this new LR-Classic has many features that will be new to you.

You have to also move the folder(s) containing your images and also the catalogs. ( and your presets, profiles.....)

Then, you can re-open the catalogs and locate HDD where you images are stored to re-build the catalog.

Tedious but doable. You have to keep your old PC alive until you have transferred everything.
