I am currently a student and my personal computer is a macbook air, and does not have a large enough hard drive for my photos. I would like to use LR for the organization. When I Import photos and work on them from the hard drive then close down LR and reboot the computer All of my work is no longer there.
Please help and advise me what to do?
Moving this discussion to the Photoshop Lightroom forum.
It would probably be better if you kept the Lightroom program on the hard drive, putting the catalog and images on an external hard drive. But I'm curious when you say that when you shut Lightroom down and reopen it that all your changes are gone. Please clarify when you say that you want to use Lightroom to organize your photos. Are you also editing them using Lightroom?
