I have Elements 10 which I find difficult. I bought Lightroom 4 and this makes more sense to me with regards to processing photos. Both have a catalog feature which I gather are not the same. I made a huge error when I loaded E10 and it sucked every image from the hard drive in, not just my photos. I need to dump that and start over. Could use some help there too.

until now I have used Picasa to do simple adjustments and used their date folder catalog system.

I would like advice on how to put the stake in the ground so to speak and set up a catalog where I can store all my Pics and then a space to store my "good stuff" that I can PP to a higher standard and possibly market in some way. I still want to keep the general images but being at the base of the mountain of 4k images I don't know what would make sense if I were near the top with images I might market.

I hope I did not make this question to confusing. I need a top down view of a working catalog system.

Thanks in advance. JB
