This may well fall into one of those idiot questions - but so be it. I really need some help with pictures on my Macbook Pro. Cominng from DOS - about 4 years ago - the OS X file structure has given me problems. But all others are easy compared to pictures. On my Mac I have of course iPhoto 11. I have Aperature 3 - and yes I also have Elements 11. Using Finder, my picture structure is like a jungle. Libaries here and there. Folders? I got folders. But I still have no idea where the FILE actually resides. When asked to upload a pic to an internet site - I just give up. I thought I was making some progress with Aperature, but then very strange things began to happen. Try an action and the rotating glove comes up ands stays up. Force quit is the only way out. Not an Adobe fan, but Elements 11 looked good - and actually appears to be working - except I stlll dont know where my raw files are. Under DOS: C;/Photos Nikon Grandkids 2009, etc. Cruise, 2012 iPhone (imports from photostream) So simple. Anyway, Im showing about 9,000 pics. Actual would be about 3,000. So I have all these placeholders. Any help in getting organized would be appreciated. Also, if I have Elements - would LR4 do anything Elements doesnt?
