    How do I get access to a created album in “layers” ?

      Unfortunately you won’t be able to access every created photo album inside layers but you could access the album you grabbed your photo(s) from by opening up Filmstrip View with “F” on your keyboard. You could also access photos inside of your Extras by going to File > Manage Extras

    Folders, Albums and other DAM features (cataloging, in general) have been a constant source of many bugs and poor performance . PR2019.1 seems to be working very well for editing, but I have not yet enabled any of its DAM features. Before I follow the advice of your vid, can you assure me that the PR2019.1 DAM is up to the task (on a Windows 7 PC).

      First a disclaimer. I don’t work for ON1, I’m not a professional photographer but been involved in photography for many years (mainly medium format B&W).

      GaryP, IMHO, asking for the the DAM is up to the task. is a very subjective question and you provided very little information. for anyone to make a reasonable assertion that would be acceptable to you. The fact that you are still using Windows 7 in 2019 says a fair bit. I can only speak for myself, As an ex-Lightroom user I like the DAM in ON1 Much better that LR. It may not have all the bells and whistles of LR but that’s what I like. It has worked well for me and and reasonable quick. Quick is subjective depending on What sort of CPU, RAM and type and amount of storage space. GPU and display also play a part and that nt even getting into the Photography side of things. Gerry I have no doubt that you have more images than I do so the best I can suggest to you is enable the DAM features and see if the meet YOUR expectations, If not, disable it again. As for I’m I am enjoying Photo RAW 2019.1. Obviously YMMV.

    I want to migrate my Lightroom catalog, but I want it to be stored on a specific destination. Let’s say, from the original hard drive, where the Lightroom Catalog is, to another hard drive, where I want the new ON1 catalog to be. Is it possible to do this?
