I think they've finally changed the behavior. Mine is still v4, until I get an Intel Mac. It used to be they did, in fact, copy all your files. This was not necessarily desireable behavior. I think now you can leave your originals in place. It still is a reference and you can revert, but it no longer duplicates everything.

Lightroom also references the original. It won't necessarily copy it in full to its own directory. And you can revert. I don't know yet what the limitations are, apart from the fact that it doesn't manage offline files -- it has to copy them to disk. However, if managed "in place" my Lightroom library doesn't fill up with duplicates. Only if I choose to Export to PS do I get another "copy," Tif this time. It must be using XMP because in Lightroom, I can see my edits and revert. In Bridge, I see my untouched originals, despite having edited them in Lightroom.

I don't know what Photo Album does.

Most of the cheap slide show programs for Windows are just that -- they make the slide shows, but they don't do the work of image editing. Since Clayton has PS, he doesn't need a program for image editing, I shouldn't think.
