    I currently have all my photos in regular folders, managed by Lightroom and I'd like to keep it that way.

    However, having a copy of all of them in the new Photos app/iCloud seems sensible.

    So, if I were to choose the Import option on the new Apple Photos mac app, does it move or copy them?

    Thanks

    Just seen that there's a copy/move option in Preferences.

    Next challenge is how to get everything copied to iCloud when there's no room on the HDD for two copies.

    I believe it does, I have set it to not copy the photos and yet I have a pretty big photo library (it looks like one anyway)
