"LR 4 copying photos"


Glenview, US
          

I use LR4 with my images and catalog on a separate drive and would like to duplicate images and place them on my macbook pro under a different catalog so I can play with them when I travel.
What is the best way to do this and then return the images to the original catalog and drive?

In advance, thank you for your advice.

Using LR4, I'd guess that you would "Export as Catalog", do your traveling thing on the MacBook Pro, and then "Import from Another Catalog" when you get home. Having never done this, I don't know but assume that you would get the opportunity to replace files of the same name.

WIth LR5, you get to export previews, work on them whil eyou travel, and then update your catalog when you return.
