The Lightroom Catalog – Part 1, or “Where Are My Pictures?”
How many people really understand the relationship between the Lightroom catalog and the underlying system folder structure? On one level I suppose it does not always have to matter, so long as Lightroom knows where everything is stored. But of course, it is always more reassuring to know how Lightroom is managing everything.
George Jardine has just posted a video podcast “that covers the basics of understanding Lightroom’s catalog model. We cover where Lightroom stores your previews and metadata, how Lightroom links to your source files, and how to use Lightroom with Bridge’s browser-based workflow.”
