I apologize in advance for posting this question because I feel like I must be missing something obvious. I have been using Macs since the 80's and photoshop for 20 years. Fairly new to Lightroom. I was using Lightroom 3 and just upgraded to Classic. I cannot seem to select and move multiple photos. If I select multiple photos and then try to drag the group, it only takes one image. I have been looking through the preferences and menus and the community and I can't find a solution. If anyone can tell me what they think I am doing wrong, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
Thanks for your response. I am trying to just drag and drop them into collections or folders. However, after I select a group of images and try to drag it, lightroom deselects the group of images and only lets me grab the image that my mouse was pointing to. I just upgraded from lightroom 3 and the process works just fine in that version. I feel like I must have changed some type of selection preference but I can't find anything that would seem to affect this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Following up. I think I figured out the issue and it was kind of stupid. When I tried to drag the images, I was clicking in the border outside of the image. Even though the border is also highlighted, that doesn't work. When I click inside the image and then drag, it works fine. Maybe that is intuitive for everyone else, but I only stumbled upon it by trial and error. Thanks again.
There is one very subtle distinction to watch out for when dragging one or more selected images in the Grid view. When you’re about to drag, position the mouse over any of the image thumbnails — but not the borders around the thumbnails — and then mouse down to drag.
This is because Lightroom Classic loads more options into a thumbnail than other applications might. The thumbnail border area can contain clickable controls to do things like change the rating or flag setting, sync metadata, change orientation, etc. So when your intention is to drag the thumbnails, it’s good to develop a habit of always aiming for the thumbnail image itself so that you don’t accidentally click a control in the border. Aim for the middle.
