Two Ways to Switch from Lightroom to ON1
Are you ready to switch from Lightroom (only latest release of Lightroom 6 & Lightroom Classic CC) to ON1 Photo RAW 2022.5? If so, we want to make it as smooth as possible. There are two common migration paths and both depend on how you store your photos. Let's begin!
Want to migrate your organization from Lightroom?
We want you to maintain as much as you can from Lightroom so your time is not wasted. Our free Lightroom Migration Tool will assist transitioning from Lightroom.
Step 1. Find your photos
Connect any external drives or shares containing photos that you want to migrate. Then use the Sync Folder command in Lightroom to make sure your Lightroom catalog and the actual files are up-to-date. This will add any photos that Lightroom is missing as well as remove broken links.
Step 2. Pre-organize
Remove any photos, virtual copies, or collections that you don't care about. It's also a good time to reorganize your folders a bit if necessary. If you have multiple catalogs, rinse and repeat.
Step 3. Make the switch!
Next, install ON1 Photo RAW 2022.5 if you haven't already. Then open Lightroom and go to the File > Plugin Extras menu. Then select Migrate Catalog to ON1 Photo. You will see a dialog that looks like the one below.
The Migration Assistant will add the top-level folders in the Folders pane in Lightroom to Cataloged Folders in Photo RAW. All of the photos inside of these folders will be cataloged automatically. Your collections and Metadata changes made in Lightroom will be migrated and includes keywords, descriptions, ratings, labels, orientation, etc.
Lastly, RAW processing and editing settings from Lightroom's Develop module including crop, retouching, and local adjustments are migrated non-destructively so they can be re-edited in ON1 Photo RAW 2022.5.View the Full Instructions
Manage your photos in folders or sub-folders?
If you store and manage photos in a folder and your photos are then organized in sub-folders making the switch is easy. This path also assumes any edits you have made to your photos are stored in the photos themselves, or copies of the original photos. This is the case if you have been using a normal pixel-editor like Adobe® Photoshop® or Photoshop Elements®. Simply open ON1 Photo RAW 2022.5 and browse to the location where your photos are stored.
If you have top-level folder (like your My Pictures folder) set it as a cataloged folder. Go to the File menu and select Add Cataloged Folder. This will add all of your folder and the photos in those folders to ON1 Photo RAW. Cataloging occurs in the background and extract and catalogs the images metadata as well as a screen-sized preview so you can search and move between photos lightning-fast. That’s it, you're done.
