In addition to being the place where you perform a lot of edits on your photos, Lightroom is an excellent program for cataloging and organizing images. As you work over time, you're likely to have tens of thousands of images stored there, and it becomes crucial to carefully organize your photos so you can easily find and work with them. This great video will show you just how to do that along with some other helpful tips.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this video explores working with large catalogs of images in Lightroom and how to effectively import, cull, export, etc. When my catalog hit about 8,000 images, I started noticing I was having trouble efficiently moving through my photos, and perhaps my method of just guessing approximately when the shoot was and finding the dated folder wasn't exactly sufficient or efficient. I took a few days to go back through my catalog and properly organize, and now, as I near 60,000 images, I'm really glad I did, as it makes a huge difference in my workflow efficiency and capabilities. I recommend taking the time to watch Danson's video above, as he'll show you everything you need to know.
