Please bear with me, I'm new to LR3. I have read Kelby's book. I have now installed LR3. Last night for the first time, I worked on a photo then confusion ensued. It was late, wasn't finished fiddling with the photo, just wanted to save it to do some more with it this morning but all I could do was "export". But I wasn't finished and didn't want to export it anywhere as a jpeg or tiff or dng. I just wanted the raw with the xmp to work on some more. Ended up just leaving the program and image open overnight but I was wondering what does one does in this situation?
