    I'm giving Lightroom a chance now as I've found out you can manage your folders from within the program (I didn't spend that much time with it last time :eek: ) and I'm wondering what it means when my library says "All Photographs XXX/XXX"

    How come it says x photo's / y photo's?

    I keep meaning to try Lightroom myself, but i haven't yet. But i could guess that if XXX/XXX is a number, that they refer to the number of pics that you have imported. i.e. 'all photographs 78/78' or 'previous import 18/78' or something.
    Try this site for tutorials and getting started etc: http://www.photoshopsupport.com/lightroom/index.html.

    This is correct. If you are working on image 13 out of 130 it would look like 13/130 and so on.

    I get it now. It's because you have a certain amount of images but not all are shown because of stacks etc.
