Let's back up. What release are you using? Is this an upgrade? What platform? Have you ever imported images into a catalogue?

And, most importantly, if you have used Lightroom before and imported images in, do you have the catalogue open you think you do?

Hello John,

I'm using Lightroom 3. No, it's not an upgrade. I bought it new from B&H online a few days ago. My laptop has Windows 7 installed - if that's what you mean by "platform". I don't know what you mean by "imported images into a catalogue".

A while back I took the Lightroom 30 day trial. Since then I uninstalled it. My images appeared automatically. I don't know what you mean by "imported images in". I don't know what you mean by "have the catalogue open you think you do. What is HTML?
