I was having trouble with my iMac so i bought a new one.. On my old iMac I imported photos with lightroom from the cf card to an external hard drive .. Plus on the external hard drive I have 8 iPhoto library's how can I open the older iPhoto library in lightroom .. ? .. When I click on the iPhoto library in the external hard drive the photo app starts and I get a msg saying don't have enough space to open it .. I have 8 iPhoto library's each approx. 300 gig they are from 2010-13 and I would like to go thru them in lightroom 6 if possible.. And I don't want to open and save on the iMac hard drive which is only 1 terabyte. the library's are several terabytes , I want re-save them on an external hard drive ..
The iPhoto library's are on ex hard drive called "pictures 2" which is 4 terabytes , I have the newer photos on hard drive called " pictures 3" which is also 4 tb ..

Link is to an article about Adobe's iPhoto Import plug in. Haven't tried it since I used the brute force method in moving from Aperture to Lightroom many years ago.
