  • 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.

New Laptop Moving Current Hardrive to It

Lightroom Classic 8.3.1
Operating System
Windows 10
My new laptop is on the way. I've reviewed the instructions for moving Lightroom from one computer to another. And I've done this years ago when I got my current laptop so I'm familiar with the steps.

However, this time it is different. I'm putting the SSD drive from my current laptop into my new one. When I do, it will be the D drive because my new laptop comes with a small C drive.

I know I'll have to install Lightroom Classic on my new laptop and it will be on the C drive along with all my software/program files.

What steps should I do so that LR will see the files and photos on the D drive?

Thanks in advance for your help and guidance!
