I was wondering if someone can give me instructions on how to transfer pictures from iphoto to Lightroom? I am brand new to Lightroom, but have my pictures organized in iphoto.

I really appreciate the help!

You have to export them first. While iPhoto is open go to file>export. It will ask you where you want to export them to. I export them to Pictures. When I got my iMac 2 years ago, I hated (and still do) iPhoto. All the images I had on my IBM computer where uploaded to my iMac by Apple after purchase. So, I had to export all of them to Image Capture. I believe you cannot export them right in to LR. HTH.

Don't know if drag and drop works here; but might be worth a try.

I would export the photos on your phone to your computer's hard drive.
Use LR to import the photos from the hard drive.
