IMAGES SPACE ON HARDDRIVE
I import all my images to Lightroom but I just got on1 2020.5. When I go into browse all my images show up in on1 too. Is this taking up double space on my iMac harddrive? I shoot Z7 and my images are 45 MB so I delete what I am not happy with. If I delete from on1 will it also delete from Lightroom and vice versa? I am a bit mixed up about this and would appreciate any help.
No. Photo RAW is an image browser, it reads what is on your drives when you point it to any given folder. Unlike Lightroom where the images have to be imported into a Library which does take more space, Photo RAW just works directly with what it can see.0
Thank you. So I should do my deleting in Lightroom and they will delete from on1 too.0
If you delete from Lightroom then you have to select the delete from Disk option, then will vanish from On1 as well.
If you delete from On1, and have already imported them into Lightroom, then you will need to synchronise the folder they were in back in Lightroom to remove references to them from the Lightroom catalogue.
Lightroom needs references to photos in its catalogue before it can work in them, hence the need to import new images. Depending on options used during import images can just be added to catalogue in their current location, or can be copied into a new location. The latter generally gets used when importing from SD card or camera.0
Also, if you edit an image in Photo RAW (ON1 is the company name, not the program name 😉) then delete it while in Lightroom you will leave behind an orphaned .on1 sidecar file. Those hold your edits. When you delete or move a photo in Photo RAW its .on1 sidecar will also be deleted or moved along with the image file.0
