DNGs on external HD only?
« on: February 25, 2013, 03:13:44 PM »
Dear CR fellas,
Does anyone know if it's possible to have the original files (DNGs) on an external HD only and still have labeling/keywording and all that stuff working? The idea is to have the desktop with selected JPEGs only.
Thanks in advance!
