How do i move photos from one lightroom catalog to another?

First thing you are going to want to do is open up the Lightroom catalog you want to move photos from. If you aren't currently in that catalog, you can open it by clicking File > Open Catalog, then navigating to the appropriate catalog. Once you have the catalog open, select all of the photos that you would like to migrate to another catalog.
