Angry Lightroom saves! (so does Jesus)

When you work on an image, I am told that Lightroom automatically saves the work. WHERE TO? HOW DO YOU FIND SOMETHING it has saved, and pigeonholed somewhere?

Your original file remains untouched and in the same location in which it started.

What is saved is a set of instructions describing your editing process. This is saved in the catalogue and if you have ticked the option as a sidecar file

Re: Lightroom saves! (so does Jesus)

Have been watching a Creative Live online tutorial, and now know to hit the cancel button at bottom right, so LR doesn't just suck em in, but has to wait for me to have the pics in a folder, and send it to that folder. I also learned how to direct LR on where to put the ones I have been working on.

You do not have to accept LR opening and injesting images automatically. You can turn this feature off (Preferences) and set up your folder and then ask LR to import to catalogue when ready after pointing to your new image folder in the LR dialogue.

Not clear what you mean here as your worked on images remain where they started and only a new instruction set is saved - a very small fext file either within the LR catalogue database or additionally as an xmp file
