This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 (Mac) [Download] (Software Download)
Initially I felt very frustrated by LR, as I struggled to understand where the photos were stored.. that unlike iPhoto (which I used previously), the original photo is not actually in the LR programme itself... When the penny finally dropped I started a lengthy process of relocating photos from iPhoto to a new home on my hard drive, as in my experience iPhoto does not seem to be compatible with LR.. I then began to understand just how important the location of original photos is to using LR. Now all my new photos are downloaded to this new home, where LR knows where to find them.. & backed up of course.
I now understand the significance of the ? mark, which will appear if LR cannot locate the original photo, because you may have moved it! Once you understand these 'crucial' basics the rest seems straightforward.. and now I am looking forward to learning how to use LR to its full potential..
