so I've found the psase3_help file. It doesn't really give much of an overview, just specifics in a step by step manner which is OK as far as it goes.
What I really want is guidance on how it manages the images, so I can anticipate and therefore avoid problems and clashes related to file locations and database integrity.
I'll forget about 'help' from the software and see if I can be bothered figuring it out for myself by trial and error...
PSA doesn't actually move the images around so much as catalogue them. So
for example, you could have 10 different images in 10 different folders, but
they would all appear in the viewing area. The organizing that you do per se
is with tagging...again, you are essentially sorting them by category in the
catalogue, but NOT physically on the HDD.
Does that help to get you started?
Yes, I am aware of that, although one does need to know where the catalogue files are, and what they are called etc to back them up.
Also, if its anything like Adobe Elements, it will not use sound files associated with pictures directly, but rather make a copy for its own use in another particular place. (Of course now that I've found the help file I can infer that it may not handle sound files at all)
