The photo above is the first photo edited on the new PC in Lightroom. The old PC was getting a little long in the tooth and could no longer be upgraded to meet today’s photo editing requirements. The new PC is a Dell and seems to be built for photo editing. The first impression is that it’s fast with enough memory and a good graphics card. I also purchased a new monitor to replace the 13-year-old one I’ve been using. I’m still using the keyboard and mouse I’ve had for about 11 years.

Anyone who gets a new PC to replace an older PC knows what an adventure it is. On top of that, migrating Lightroom and its catalog to a new PC is an even greater adventure. I was able to do it all smoothly because the old PC was still working and all the photos are located on separate drives. Also, I had a working Chrombook that I could turn to if I ran into problems (which I did). If anyone needs details, just ask.
