Hello All - I'm looking for advice on how best to manage my digital photos. I've recently begun shooting in RAW and have bought a massive external to help manage the file sizes. Right now I have photos in my old iphoto library on an external hard drive, I have photos on my newer Macbook, and I have photos in Lightroom. Previously I had been importing only the photos I wanted to edit into Lightroom, but I've begun to upload all my pictures directly to Lightroom. Is that the proper way to use Lightroom? It seems like I have less issues with editing photos later, since the original copy is always available. If I continue to do this, I'm not sure how to balance some pictures in Lightroom on my computer, and others on my external - will I have to export them from Lightroom and delete the originals?? Any help you can give would be appreciated! Clearly I'm a beginner at this.
