Lightroom workflow suggestions
New to using Lr. Just bought a MBPR with a little HD. Since I don't want to store my photos on my laptop, I am not sure how to get my mojo going on the workflow. I purchased a WD Passport external HD that I want to use as a dedicated photo storage (as well as being stored in the cloud on Google Drive).Do I....
A. Copy from my memory card to my MBPR (into iphoto--maybe) then copy them from there onto the HD?Then do I delete the photos from iphoto to regain space?
B. Can I copy directly from my card to the external HD?
I really want to get it right from the get-go. Read horror stories about file locating nightmares.
Then I am guessing that I import them into Lr when my External HD is plugged in??
Sorry for the confusion--just can't get my head around the flow thing--any tried and true method- sharing would be much appreciated.Thanks~bj
