  • 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

      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.
          I also learned how to direct LR on where to put the ones I have been working on.
          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

            saving work in Lightroom
            by memphishooter
            How do you save work in Lightroom, other than to export the file? I don't see but one "done" button, which goes away after just one adjustment. I am used to being able to save a work as I go along, but I don't see how its done in the develop mode. Ideas? Thanks!

            by memphishooter
            When I have finished working on a group of pictures, this software has me export them, right? In the export box, I see no options for file type, jpg, tiff, etc. IS THERE A WAY TO EXPORT THEM AS THE FILE TYPE OF MY CHOICE? Where is that? Thanks!

            by testerke
            Hello,

            I use photoshop and lightroom too. Usually I do changes in lightroom and export the file to edit in PS. My photoshop, monitor and lightroom are calibrated to Adobe rgb 1998.
            The problem is the export option. I use the "Original" file option and with this I can still...

            I recently downloaded the Lightroom trial, and I have to admit, i am impressed. I figurd out a work flow that worked for me in a matter of a couple of hours.

            Here is my problem. I worked on my RAW photos, made crops, adjustments, etc and exported to JPEGS to post, no issues. I closed...

            Anybody here know some simple tasks with Lightroom, like making a picture go away (delete) after it has been imported? Who knows a good tutorial source on it? Thanks!
