Lightroom Step by Step #2: Organising your Images

Event info


#2 Organising your images

  • Is your Lightroom catalogue a mess?
  • Are you just starting with Lightroom and don’t know where to begin?
  • Do you fully understand just how Lightroom keeps track of all your images?
  • Have you got images with !  (exclamation points) that you can’t edit?

Well, you’re like most people then!

Help is at hand!

In this talk, Adobe Certified Expert Joe Houghton will explain Organising your images in a plain, easy to understand way:

What time: 10:00:00 AM 

Date of this workshop: Saturday 30 July 2022 

Organising your images is what Lightroom was originally developed for - and it’s REALLY powerful at doing it.

Once you understand just what the Lightroom catalogue actually is and how it works, then organising your images and leveraging the power of Lightroom to order your images becomes MUCH easier.  My catalogue has 640,000 images in it, and I can find anything in a matter of seconds. 

In this talk, Adobe Certified Expert Joe Houghton will - in a plain, easy to understand way:

1. Explain just what the Lightroom catalogue is.

2. Show what happens when you exit Lightroom and choose to backup - and more importantly, what doesn’t happen and why this is critically important!

3. Discuss the importance of a good backup system for your photos.

4.Show how to set up a logical folder structure to store your images in.

5. Show how to change Lightroom’s default import settings to give you more control of where your images end up after import.

6. Show how to add the contents of existing folders on your hard drive(s) into Lightroom.

7. Show how to make all those images you can’t edit (the one’s with exclamation points) editable again.

8.Show how to update Lightroom when you’ve made changes to images & folders outside of Lightroom - in Windows Explorer or Finder for instance.

9.Show how to tag folders by colour or as Favourites, and then just display these folders.
