Hi,

I would like to migrate from Apple Photos to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC. I use the migration tool available from the File menu. The migration ended as I don't have enough space on my local HD.

As a workaround, I would like to move my Lightroom CC catalog (Lightroom Library.lrlibrary) to an external HD because it has enough storage for the migration.

I am unable to find a way to have my catalog anywhere else than my main HD.

Do you have any recommendation to complete the migration?

Thanks,

Jonathan

No, you can't change the location of the local library, but you don't need to. What you DO need to do is change the "Storage location for originals" on the Preferences>Local Storage tab. Do that before re-trying the migration, and set the location to the external drive. Because Lightroom copies the photos into its own disk space, that is what's causing the space problem on the system drive if you leave the originals location set to the default.
