Operating System: W 10

Exact Lightroom Version: LR6 and LR Classic CC

I bought the subscription. Let it create the new catalog, .lrcat2, based on my LR6 catalog. The LR6 catalog was clean, with no missing files or folders. CC catalog has many missing files and folders, some of which I have not been able to find and fix. I have tried opening my last backups from LR6 in an effort to fix CC, but they won't open. Now, my latest attempt to open CC has all photos missing.

One of the reasons to go to subscription was to be able to import more easily my iPhone photos utilizing Mobile without having to jump through the Apple hoops of using iTunes. Mobile seems to upload to "cloud', but LRCC appears to not have a way to download to the PC. Adobe help directs to a sales page.

I have not yet deleted and reloaded the subscription in an attempt to fix. At least I have multiple backups from before I attempted this fiasco. Worst case, I could delete the CC and stay with LR6.

Any suggestions which don't involve a shotgun?

I am not sure if you are using LR CC or LR Classic CC. The way Adobe names them create confusion. You get both products with the subscription, together with Photoshop.
If you are trying to import your existing catalog from a desktop computer, you should use Classic CC.
CC does indeed upload to the cloud and it is meant to be used with mobile devices, when a computer is not available (for example editorial news photo to send immediately to a newspaper).
It is possible then to import the files to the catalog from the cloud using Classic CC.
Apart from the circumstances above,only Classic CC should be used for a desktop workflow

'pissed'
1) To be extremely angry
2) To be heavily intoxicated with alcohol to the point of not knowing where you are.

Which one are you referring to?:-)

You backed up your LR6 catalog before updating it ... right? Can you open the backup from LR6 and carry on in LR6 business as usual? At least you know your original starting point is intact.

As far as transitioning over to LR CC Classic, have you tried Exporting the Catalog from LR6 and then importing the catalog into LR CC Classic? Maybe this more explicit method will make the problem more obvious if it fails, or maybe it will help with the conversion.

Full disclosure: I do not use LR, so I'm taking a shot in the dark.

Good luck,

kirk

To work with Lr Classic CC and the mobile Lr apps on your device you have to go to preferences in Lr CCC and connect it to your online account on the Lightroom sync tab.

Once you have done that you will then have options to say where the images from your mobile Lr apps should be imported. I just have it import to the same folder structure that I normally use for images downloaded from cards from my DSLR.

If you want to have access to images from your desktop you need to create a Collection, and set it to sync. You can chose to sync any collection, other than smart collection.

Sorry not a OSX user, so not really sure why Lr would not be able to your existing images, if you haven't physically moved them.

Just use Apple Photos to import photos from your phone, no need to use itunes.

Yes, and yes. I'm going to stop for a while and determine what the correct procedure is. I need for V. Bampton to publish her next Missing FAQ book.

Sounds like your catalog is out of wack. Hopefully.. you still have your files like they were local.

If you are using the local version you should still have your file folder(hopefully with all the files). the "catalog" is just a separate file with in your files that organizes them in LR. You can delete the "catalog" file and just make a new one and your files are still there in the folder.

Back up. Always Back up. Personally I do not trust "cloud" back up. only as a second form.

Update:

At another's suggestion, I deleted all catalogs created since I purchased Classic CC (Jan 2). I then collapsed the folder tree in LR6 so only 2 top tier folders showed (One top folder was suggested, but two top level folders for LR is the way I have my structure). I closed LR6 and allowed it to back up the catalog.

I then opened Classic CC, selected the LR6 catalog as a new catalog, and let the program do its upgrade. Every thing now seems to be as it should be in Classic. Evidently some have had issues trying to convert a catalog which had been saved with LR showing an expanded folder tree.

Not quite so p1ssed, now.

I'd be pretty pissed if the success of my critical image processing software's backup and import depended on whether or not the folder tree view was expanded in the application. How can that possibly affect the process?

Well, glad you got it sorted out.
