Hello,

i totally misunderstood the program. What i did for 9 month and over 5k pictures later....

Hardware: macbook pro 250gb hd + lr cc (20gb cloud)

I imported all my pictures directly from my cameras sd-card into LR cc. The cloud was full after 700 pictures and warned me, that there is no space for more. I ignored that red flag and continued importing raw files into LR cc. All the pictures are in the library now. I have full access, i can edit and export them. But, there is no space left on my macbooks HD. The problem is, i can't find the original raw files on my macbooks hd. Where are they? How can i find my raw files to transfer them to an external harddrive?

To access the originals outside of Lightroom, do the following. Right-click on the Library file and choose ‘Show Package Content’. It will open as a folder (a package looks like a file but is a folder). Inside you’ll find several subfolders, including a subfolder with the original images.

If you want to keep working with Lightroom this way, you have to change the location of the originals inside Lightroom however. You can do that in the preferences.
