I got a new MacBook Pro and redownloaded both versions of Lightroom (Up until this point - I was only using Lightroom Classic). My catalogs from Classic won't open in the new Lightroom and I can't figure out why! What is the difference between the classic Lightroom and the new version?
If you choose to go with Lightroom vs Lightroom Classic; you can Migrate the classic catalog along with the content to Lightroom using the Migrate option in Lightroom. The catalog has to have been opened at least once in Lightroom classic. Note; this is a one way street. You cant migrate back to classic; though classic has some features to sync with Lightroom. Naming is very confusing isnt it?
