Hi, I obviously don't have Lightroom yet. I am probably going to switch over from Aperture. I am very unhappy with Aperture and am frustrated with the way my photos are handcuffed in an Aperture format. I don't want to have to export projects and metadata and go through seventy file folders to find a photo in my system without going through Aperture.
Can anyone explain how Lightroom sets up the files? I know that they don't damage the masters, but how are the master files set up? Do I have to do all of my exporting and backup the same way as through Aperture (if anyone knows?). Does Adobe put the files in a Lightroom format?
