How do I open just one file to edit?

Whenever I open the program, it always shows my last upload folder.

I just can't work it out so I am using Elements 5 again!

You need to import the photo before any editing...

If the images are already in the correct place on your computer, when you import you can select the Add option, and it will add the images you select to your catalogue without moving them or copying them.

If your images are on your camera, you could use the Move option instead.

Lightroom does not show the images as they are on your filesystem as such - it records various bits of data relating to the images, and displays entries in the catalogue based on that information. It means that Lightroom can do things such as create virtual copies of images without making a copy of the original source file, for example.

Drag the file from file-browser window onto LR window...

They said Ned Ludd was an idiot boy
That all he could do was wreck and destroy, and
He turned to his workmates and said: Death to Machines
They tread on our future and they stamp on our dreams.

Photoshop for me - drag 'em from wherever they are right into it.
