    Hello All,

    I recently switched from a PC to a MAC. Some of the photos I transferred to my MAC I used this process:

    Exported from Lightroom on the PC to a USB stick.

    I then imported them into Lightroom from the USB stick to the MAC.

    All went well, except each of the thumbnails has an icon which indicates there is a metadata conflict. (I should have just copied the photos using the file structure rather than exporting them I now realize)..I think.

    When I click on the icon I get a choice to either import the settings from the disk or overwrite the settings. My choice is to overwrite them.

    My question is: Is there a way to do this on a set of photos rather than going through this process on each individual thumbnail.

    As always, your time and assistance is most appreciated.

    Stan

    Solved my problem....I must have been la la land when I wrote my request. All you have to do is select a group of photo's, click on the metadata conflict icon in the thumbnail in one of them and you get a dialogue box on how you would like to resolve the issue for the group of photos you have selected. Piece of cake.
