Hello,

 

I'm in the midst of trying to combine two large iPhoto libraries and pull them both into Lightroom.

The iPhoto library version is 9.4.3.

 

This is for a user, not myself, and I need to make sure to preserve as much metadata as possible.

 

Here's my plan:

1.  Update both iPhoto library versions to 9.6.1

2.  Import each Library into a single Lightroom Classic library, using the iPhoto import plugin

3.  Import the Lightroom Classic library into Lightroom CC.

 

Is this the least error-prone method to do what I want to do?  If not, what is?

 

I'd consider importing into Photos then directly into Lightroom CC but I can only do that with a single library, not 2.

 

I'm also wondeirng how reliable the Lightroom Classic sync to CC functionality is, and if I should use that instead.

 

Any thoughts?
