Lightroom file importing
Nov 30, 2012

I've always imported my RAW files onto my desktop and worked through ACR/Photoshop from there. Then stored copies in an external HD and moved the finished shots into iPhoto. But I'd like to get into Lightroom for the more robust features for handling and storage, plus basic editing.

I read about lots of different workflows but they all start from the image folder but I have a basic question about the original folder itself: does it work best to download to a desktop/HD , then move that folder into LR or Aperture, or to import directly into the programs?

Any insight would be appreciated,
