Yes, I know this has been asked before and I apologize.
Please understand that those of us with very limited computer skills require incredibly literal directions or we are certain to fail
I keep my entire LR Catalog and Library on an external hard drive that stays at home
When I travel I take a smaller portable drive that I use with my laptop to download images and do editing in my downtime on the trip
When I get home, I download the images from the CF and SD cards ( again ) to my main LR setup
If I really like what I got while editing on the trip, I plug in the travel drive and download the specific finished Tiff files to get them into my main LR catalog ( I think they are getting into the catalog? )
Here's what I would prefer doing…..
Set up a new catalog on a clean travel drive.
Download images into folders like I do when at home
Move those folders into my main LR catalog when I get home with all edits and processing and previews intactCan anybody give me a step by step for the correct way to make this work?
