Do You Know Where Your Catalog Is?

One of the most important things a Lightroom user should know is the location of where his or her working catalog is stored on his or her system. Now there’s no shame if you don’t know, because its location is pretty transparent when you use Lightroom; however, if you should ever run into a problem, you’ll be glad to know where it is.

The Final Day of “Lightroom Only” Month

Whooops! Well, I goofed. I posted this early this morning. I even got up early to write it. But sadly, in my tired state, (yeah, I’ll blame it on fatigue) I forgot to categorize it so it showed up on the home page. Sorry 🙂 Welcome to the final day in my self-project-ish, month-long postings of images I’m only using Lightroom to edit.
