Description

The section in the user manual "1.2. darktable basic workflow / Importing" should tell the user what happens to the files during importing a folder: Does Darktable copy the images? Or does it store the path to the images?

The two use cases should be explained:

- I have already several hundret images in my folders in $HOME/Pictures ... I don't want to copy images
- I have a usb-stick with some images of a friend and .... I want to copy the images

Here is the section where the information should be: http://www.darktable.org/usermanual/ch01s02.html.php
