I know dumb question, but I have been using Aperture for the last few years and wanted to check out Lightroom 4 as a beta first, before buying. Having never used an Lightroom version before, I am confused as to where the images are stored once imported.
Some quick history. I JUST reformatted my iMac, so ALL of my images are in Aperture Vaults on an external HDD. So what I did was drag the location of where the master files were to my desktop and imported from there. What I found out was that Lightroom "references" my files from where I imported them from. LR doesn't move them into .Ircat - where as Aperture did this.
So would I simply just move the folder to User/pictures/lightroom, where all the LR info is? And to answer any questions, I won't have both Aperture and LR4 installed. I am trying to stream line my workflow as much as possible, and heard a lot of good things about LR4. My wife will buy it for me if I like this version
thanks in advance
