Can't access photos

My old Lenovo got to the point where it wouldn't update its operating system anymore, so suddenly Lightroom wouldn't open because the computer wasn't updated. I didn't have any idea this was happening, and now I cannot access any of the hundreds and hundreds of photos I had in Lightroom. How do I find them on the hard drive so that I can download them to an external hard drive? I have also switched to an iMac, so none of the photos I had edited on the Lenovo are showing up in the program on my Mac.

Let's start a conversation by telling us the Version and Version Number of the "Lightroom" you are using.

And the Version Number of the Mac OS installed on your computers.

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 12.0.1 Photoshop 24.0.1, ACR 15.0, Lightroom 6.0, Lr-iOS 8.0.8, Bridge 13.0, Windows-11.

お使いのLightroomのバージョンは何でしょうか?

最新のLightroom(クラウド版)であれば、データは全てクラウドにあるので、PCやOS環境に依存せずに使用できます。

古いLightroom1~6、LightroomClassicであれば、ローカルにデータを置くので外付けのハードディスクなどでデータを引き継ぐ必要があります。

 

古いPCからMacへ移行するには、

カタログデータと写真のデータをコピーする必要があります。

外付けのハードディスクがNTFSでフォーマットされている場合は、Macの標準機能では認識ができない可能性があります。NTFSフォーマットをMacで使えるツールを導入して読み込むか、両OSで読み込みができるフォーマットでフォーマットし直してデータをコピーします。

(データが数GB位なら、USBメモリーやクラウドサービスを使用してコピーする事も出来ます)

Mac側でカタログデータを開いてデータを引き継ぎします。

I may not be completely understanding what you are saying, but I cannot access the photos on my PC to copy them to a USB or cloud service because Lightroom will not open. 

 

It sounds like because it was an older version that I won't be able to access them on the cloud?

Lenovo PCで使用したLightroomが起動しなくても、

カタログデータと写真のデータをMacへコピーすれば使えるはずです。

写真のデータは、入っているフォルダ構成をそのままコピーします。

"I have also switched to an iMac, so none of the photos I had edited on the Lenovo are showing up in the program on my Mac."

Did you COPY the photo files (Lenovo > iMac) via USB using Windows File Explorer and Mac Finder?

The photos you "had in Lightroom."- which "Lightroom" ?- the Cloud based  Lightroom or the Local Folder based Lightroom-Classic?

Do you know that Lightroom-Classic does NOT sync full-size files 'up' to the Cloud?

 

I am still confused by your explanations and so finding it difficult to suggest answers.

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 12.0.1 Photoshop 24.0.1, ACR 15.0, Lightroom 6.0, Lr-iOS 8.0.8, Bridge 13.0, Windows-11.
