    Do you guys keep all your stuff in LR's library or do you delete and add as needed? I know tranfering into LR takes a lot of HD room, specially with RAW files.

    I keep everything in lightroom, its just easier. Why does it take up a lot of HD room? Hard drives are cheap.

    Plus, you have 4 bays ;)

    I keep everything in LR but I back up my important stuff on another HD.

    lol. I wasn't bitching about having to buy HDs, just the fact that I already the pics on my external and didn't want to keep filling the internal and having them in both places.

    I don't use the library module of LR. Just the development module and export to folders with datestamp and description of the event. I find that putting in keywords into each pictures doesn't help me, as my brain organizes images by day. :hs:
