Hello guys! I've got an LR2 question.
Here's the sitch. I want to reformat my computer. All my photos are on an externally powered harddrive (risky, I know, I'm going to get a backup soon), and I've had numerous edits to a majority of my photographs.
However, I have come to expect a problem. When I reformat my computer, install lightroom, and import my photos-- they will not have the saved editing data on them, because they are still the RAW .CR2 files.
May I know how I can preserve this editing? I know there's file-format for LR2 that's used for saving editing purposes, but how do I do that for every photo automatically?
I have done lots of editing. I'm going to reformat my comp, install LR2 and import back the photos. I want the editing settings to be exactly the same. Photographs will not be moved, only LR2 will be uninstalled when reformatted, and installed.
