This short little tutorial by photographer and educator Phil Steele might be too basic for most advanced and even intermediate photographers, but you might find it useful all the same. That’s because it tackles what Steele calls “the biggest confusion about Lightroom.”
So what’s the biggest confusion about Lightroom? Basically, it’s an understanding of how Lightroom actually handles your photos, and Steele explains it in plain English. He explains how the Lightroom Catalog works, how Lightroom doesn’t actually touch your original files, how importing and exporting works, and how edits are made and saved.
Even if the info is too basic for you, bookmark this video. It could save you some time the next time one of your beginner friends asks where Lightroom “put my edited photos.”
