Optimise Storage and importing more image files into Photos than my hard drive can accomodate

Digital Photography - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hello,

I've dabbled with Lightroom over the last couple years but I think it might be overkill for the amount of editing I do, so I want to give Photos a try.

I haven't made many edits in Lightroom so I'm not worried about transferring my Lightroom work into Photos. What I am trying to figure out is how best to import all my photo files and utilise Optimise Storage. I have over 200GB of photos, which is more than the space available of my MBP hard drive that I want to edit the photos on. I'd like to take advantage of the Mac/Photos 'Optimise Storage' iCloud feature so that I can edit all my photos even if they aren't all on my laptop hard drive (I realise this will require an internet connection).

When I try to copy my photos over to my Mac I get a message that my hard drive is full. There is a rather lengthy set of instructions which I believe cover how to import more files than your hard drive can accommodate on iMore -- see the comment by 'johnnydt' to 'Pete':
