MY SSD packed up and I had to create a new LR catalog with the latest back-up from the original lightroom catalog (full catalog had smart preview and was too big for temp HD)
Now I would like all the edits and pics from the new one incorporate in the "original" catalog. Can I just go >File> import from another catalog > ... or???
If so, a simple "YES" will suffice, I figure out everything as I go along.
IF NOT, could someone please help me with a detailed step by step pass, or direct me to a appropriate threat?
Thanks for all the help

Why did you create a new catalog? If you had a backup, you could use that as your catalog, or you could even copy the files from that backup and then use that as your new catalog. Was there a particular reason that you created a brand new catalog?
