  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

My question is does the app have to be on the boot volume. Can it be on another volume that would be available when I bring up LR.
Thank You

You'll find the location setting in the CC app's preferences dialog.

MacOS (and windows to the same extent) have sandboxed apps to the Application folder which is a special system folder The apps themselves expect system files to be availailable in System folders that are relative to the application executable. You can locate it elsewhere but you need to manage all of the exceptions manually rather than let the OS handle everything. My advice is to let the system manage the applications and install in the default system folder. This applies only to the application executable and its attendant files. You can still store the catalog associated files and the image files in a non system folder (Pictures is a system folder) and not see too much of a performance impact.
