I have read multiple threads talking about catalog management, export/import in some form or another, but I need help with a specific workflow problem...
I have several existing catalogs, and all of their respective images saved inside the catalog. Two drawbacks I am now facing are a) the large catalog is becoming a bit difficult to manage because of their size but more to the point b) it makes searching for metadata very difficult across several catalogs.
What I am looking into doing is:
- create a new catalog
- new catalog will have all metadata and user collection from all other catalogs
- all adjustments from old catalogs images will be preserved (e.g. exported and re-imported)
- images will not be stored in the new catalog, but all exported from multiple catalogs and all saved into a single folder on internal storage
In other words, the new catalog will have the merged user collections from all previous catalogs, with all merged metadata and with the images externally saved in a folder.
I think this is possible, but again have not been able to clearly make all those steps work.
Hope somebody can help :-)
