    Hi Harsh,

    I'm afraid currently there's no way to move the edit from once Catalog to another. 

    However, you can remove some folders from your Catalog (maybe the ones which don't include any important edits), and then create new smaller Catalogs (with a fewer amount of images) via File>Catalog>New.

    You may need professional help. I am going to follow this topic. Good luck! 

    I had problems with the parent folder structure from Luminar 3 to L4. There were a lot of crashes and I COULD NOT remove any subfolders from the catalog. The only option I had was to "Delete Forever" from the Library list. That would delete the originals. Obviously not what we want.

    My library was not anywhere near as many photos. I created a new catalog by just adding the subfolders and NOT the parent folder. Luminar has been running fine ever since. No edits were saved though (not a big deal for me).

    Doesn't create albums from the choosing from folder help you? Albums will keep the adjustments..

    Attempt is to decrease the size of library. Making albums won't influence size of the library.

    I tried creating a catalog for 700 photos for 1 folder on an SSD. While the update has improved Luminar 4's performance, it is still slow enough to be frustrating. It has crashed once so far as well. I hope that Skylum can fix these performance issues. I have a very powerful i7 and other photo suites do not have the same processing issues.
