In this video tutorial, I am going to show you how to move your photos from one hard drive to another without upsetting Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I’m going to make Lightroom do all of the “heavy lifting" and as a bonus, I’m also going to show you a little trick on how to create new folders from within Lightroom, and how to rename your folders.
I tutor a lot of photographers who have caused themselves trouble in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I see a lot of smart people who have caused themselves a needless hassle by moving photos around their computer without thinking about the effects of their actions on their Lightroom database.
