"Second post of question on multiple pics and organizers"
I posted this on the Adobe workflow forum and had no response. Perhaps some of you can shed light on this for me.
I can't seem to get my head around this. Could use some help. I have multiple copies of many pictures in the elements organizer.
I have used Picasa to view all of my photo files and they do not appear duplicated on the drive.
I can't find where or how to dump the library and have the program recompile a new one. Not that I am sure it would not do the same thing.
My main point of confusion is that LR4 is a photoshop module or something. It has its own library or rather you pull photos from the drive directly. According to what I have learned, any changes you make to a photo do not change the actual image. It is a collection of instructions that are applied at output. Elements changes the image. How do you use both tools on the same image?
