Can anyone help me jump-start my LR career?
Jun 1, 2012

Really anxious to start using LR4 but not sure how to set myself up in anticipation of my import.

I shoot RAW + JPEG and some video. I currently maintain three seperate folders with the same name for each shoot. Each has a different suffix: "JPEG", "RAW" , and "Video"

Is that the best way to set up folders? Leave them seperate or nest them in one folder?

Do you pull everything into LR or just your RAWS? Obviously I would only process the RAWS but pulling the JPEGS in allows me to tag them, right.

Just not sure how to get going.

Please help!

Thanks!!!!!!
