…By default, when you update information about your photos…within Lightroom, that information remains in the Lightroom catalog.…That means a couple of things.…One of which is that the information is not visible to other applications.…It also means that the information you're adding…to your images within Lightroom remains within Lightroom.…And so, if you were to lose your catalog and…didn't have a current backup, you would also lose that information.…Let's take a look at an option that allows you to…automatically write changes out to the XMP sidecar files for your raw…captures, so that you essentially have a full time backup of most…of the information that's available in the Lightroom catalog for your images.…
And also, so that you can see that information in other applications.…We'll start off by taking a look at the actual setting.…I'll go up to the Menu bar, and on the…Macintosh version of Lightroom, I'll…choose Lightroom followed by catalogue settings.…On the Windows version of Lightroom, that would…be under the Edit menu and then catalogue settings.…
