Hi

I have a new iMac and want to move my LR catalogue from an external hard drive to the computer. I thought that I had moved it correctly but I keep getting an error every time i try to open it?

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Click on it and point to the location where you moved it.

So you can't click on Choose a Different Catalogue and open a dialogue box?
