Title: Exporting Folder as Lightroom Catalog
Post by: sullins on October 31, 2010, 06:09:13 PM
I just returned from a shoot during which I imported a lot of images into the catalog on my laptop and worked them extensively. Now I need to get them along with all the work I did on them into the main LR catalog. If I export the folder as a LR Catalog and export the negatives and previews, will I have everything to import into the main catalog?
Thanks

Yes, everything. the alternative method, saving the data back to the files (CmdS/CtrlS) doesn't include all the work you may have done - eg stacks, collections, flags, history steps, virtual copies. So use Export as Catalog and its twin Import from Catalog for moving work between computers.
