I had just bought LR3 when they came out with LR4 so they gave me the upgrade. I am having trouble understanding how to set up my files. The develop module is easier for me to learn but I would a good system first.
Here is what I THink I want. import raws in one folder on desktop work with them then export jpegs to a folder in pictures/lightroom pictures then have 2012. Then have subfolders named, house, landscape, dogs, horses etc. and have about 7 folders.
Then move my raws to my external drive under same name files. If I make the folders in lightroom for the jpegs then is the 2012 folder on my hd not able to have folders.
I can't get past this. I have read and studied. I think I am muddying up clear waters.
