I just installed a boxed version of Lightroom 5. It immediately indicated the need for an update to which I agreed. It told me to hit the import button and then a msg came up saying "Please select a source." I am new to Lightroom, so I have no clue what it is asking me to do!
Well, I'm a little confused, Import has nothing to do with an update. So I'm not sure which one is the real problem here.
Nevertheless, when you import, you have to select the source (on the left of the Import dialog box) where your photos are located (folder on disk, camera card, CD/DVD, etc.) Photos must be imported via this method before you can do anything else in Lightroom with your photos.
Thanks. I guess those messages just coincidentally popped up right after the msg of an update showed up. I'll download the update as usual and go from there.
