Lightroom...?
I tried out lightroom and was playing around, it automatically uploaded all my photos from a specific folder (which happens to be my babies baby pictures) my trial ran out and now in place of my photos seems to be the LR logo...does anyone know where else they could be or if i could get them back without having to buy LR. I figured they were just copies of my photos...or else i would of found a way to take them out or recopy them. please anyone with any suggestion or know how, id appreciate it.

RE: Lightroom...?
Brute force: File explorer, and search all the *.JPG (or whatever) in your system. You can also restrict that to your personal part of the file system (in Vista/Seven, c:\users\{yourid}, in XP c:\Documents and Settings\{yourid}).

On the other hand, one wants to know where the files are (if only because they may have to be backed up) so the actual location of the files must be somewhere in some preferences dialog.

When I was on Windows, I used Picasa to manage my photos. It leaves them alone, just adds some "lightweight" sub-directories and files for its own management, and reacts fairly well if you move them behind its back (file explorer). Of course Picasa is a way for Google to grab information about you, but you're not obliged to answer the nosy questions when you use the face recognition thing (which is otherwise pretty well done).

I use to have an *cough* experimental install of LR, but quickly removed it. Eventually I found that since I was using only open-source software, I could use Linux instead of Windows. One of the best decisions in my life, about equivalent to quitting smoking (with which it has several points in common: withdrawal symptoms, contempt for those who haven't done it yet, cravings (I play with Spider Solitaire under Wine), more than compensated by a return to a healthy life: can walk naked (no antivirus), can run (boots in 40s sharp) and a general feeling of freedom)).

RE: Lightroom...?
thanks so much, i did search jpg that was my first thought, just look for any of them, i think i have them on a usb, but it had some more recent ones i think, thanks a bunch!!! ill try some more tomorrow im about ready for bed.

AND i know!!! Linux was awesome, i absolutely loved it! the bash was a little difficult for me to get around at first...still i think i would need to learn it a bit better, but once i fell in love with it my guy took it away, he couldnt do it. and ya know i never got wine to work for me, i had major withdrawals from my fulltilt poker when i switched and needed wine, never worked, drove me nuts.

Ill look into picasa, ya know since my computer was attacked with the virus that was the reason for me getting ubuntu i dont keep photos on my computer, not ones that are mine, downloaded ones from fam and friends i have tons, but can get them back from the net if i needed, go figure the one file, huh.

thanks again.
