How to move 180k photos from LR to C1

    Hey,
    to my knowledge, you pretty much covered the possibilities of avenues.
    - importing the raw files without LR adjustments and redevelop your assets
    - importing the Tiff files with the adjustments applied to further be able to adjust in C1 (however you can't 'undo' your LR adjustments in C1) which technically isn't your original raw file anymore (your original raw files would still not be in C1)
    - import jpg's with reduced quality due to compression loss.

    As you well know, any non destructive software has it's own 'proprietary' algorithms in processing your raw image.

    I would set a date to stop processing in LR and start using C1 with all the NEW images.

    Question is, why you would try to import all these images into C1, if you don't want to further adjust them?

    True.

    Indeed the processing applied by pretty much any application which change over time as new versions and enhancements are released. So the issue of having stuff looking the same as when it was edited in an old version of an application is not so different, in many cases, to that of changing to a new application with its own way of doing things.

    Thanks for your response. My main reasons would just be to not needing to use two different applications for my photos. Now, if I want to find all photos I have shot of say amoebas, I need to perform two searches in two applications. Also, I need to keep on paying for LR subscription to keep being able to access the application.

    But it you don't need to make any further adjustments you can save the existing outputs, likely in jpg form I would imagine, and have them widely readable by a lot of software. No need for LightRoom at all going along that route.

    How often to you actually need to re-edit any of the 180k images? Compared with the work (whether you are ding it manually of the computer is undertaking most of the effort) of transferring everything would it be too much effort to simply say "I need a new version of this one, that's see what C1 can do with it?" and generate a new output form nothing? It may be easier, faster and, perhaps, better than working with a previous edit from another system. Many people have found such a benefit revisiting some of their older material when changing applications or even as an application provides more options as it evolves.

    With the numbers involved I think you might be better off using a dedicated Digital Asset Management system for the legacy images and then adding to that from C1 as you process new images.
