    R2D2 running Liberty3 v2.0

    Going to flash a ROM for the first time and I have a stupid nooB question...

    I have an R2D2. I'm rooted, got clockwork ROM manager installed, got Titanium, got bootstrap for D2 installed, got RSD lite on my PC, and I know that I will have to wipe data. Here is my nooB questions; Will this affect my pictures on my sd card and what will I actually lose when I wipe data? I do apologize ahead of time, I am sure it's been answered many times over. I've looked at so many threads and searched on so many different topics necessary to root and flash a ROM that my head is spinning. I'm not worried to much about bricking, I've got some good tutorials bookmarked on how to do all this. I just want to be extra extra prepared for what I am about to do. Thanks in advance. Also, been reading a few threads on ROM's and trying to get a good idea for my R2D2, thoughts?

    Wiping will not effect the pictures or anything on your SD. It just wipes out any downloaded apps, settings, and will remove your Google account as well.

    So, if I move my apps to my sd, then I won't have to download them all again?
