->> Do you mean what's in the IPTC Stationary Pad? If that's what you want to do, just open the IPTC Stationary Pad and click Save, which will create a file with all of the info. Copy that file to your new laptop, and load it into Photo Mechanic via the IPTC Stationary Pad.

As for the FTP info, I'm not sure you can copy that over.

->> Yes Brady, sorry I wasn't concise. I have info for the paper and a seperate one for AP saved and want to transfer both to the new laptop. Thank you. I think I have to manually do the ftp, but thought I would check here first.

->> You can also go to the preference setting in PM choose export, this will bring up a export preference screen, selecting export brings up a screen for save location and creates a file, save that file to a jump drive go to your new computer and do an import and all your settings will be just like your old computer.

->> Simply transfer the stationary, iptc and saved files you want to move via compact flash card or jump drives. Shouldn't take you more than 7.8 minutes to do. Copy the files to folder they were in on the old laptop.

If you have a router on your home system, connect both computers to the router (wired or wifi), make the new directory a shared folder on your new system and transfer the files that way. This will take way more time, especially if you aren't familiar with setting up shared folders on a network.
