When I select an image and move it to another folder, what gets moved? Is it the RAW file? What about the exported file?
For example, I go the the Library, and select a Virtual Image that has been Exported and select to move it to another folder. What gets moved?
I'd like to move the RAW image to one folder, and the processed JPG to another. They are in different folders now. Not sure how this works.
Is the processed jpg added to LR-catalog?
If yes, you need to move it the same way as the ra, from inside LR, just to a different destination folder.
If not, LR is not concerned about it and you can move it inside your winExporer / mac Finder anywhere you like.
Just to be sure, what is visible on the grid looks like the processed image, but it is the image I worked on to apply the settings. I am assuming that although it looks like the processed JPG it is actually the RAW file and that is what gets moved.
If I then move the exported file, which I did not specifically enter into the catalog, then I would do that manually, outside of LR as it has no implication for LR.
Is this correct?
1) If you want to know what the image in the Grid is, you can:
If it shows it's a raw image, then the raw image will be moved.
then you can (must) move them manually using Finder/Explorer from outside of LR, without implications on LR.
You can also find out whether they are part of your catalog or not by choosing "All Photographs" in Grid view and see if you have a JPEG shown next to your Raw, or if your Raw shows a stack sign (number in thumbnail).
One more question.
If I have virtual copies not entered into the catalog and want to move them (I guess I am only really moving the original RAW), does it matter if I only select the non Virtual Copy? Or, do I select all the Virtual Copies too when I want to move to a different folder? Or is it irrelevant?
