Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a wonderful image management tool but this software does not automatically devise a well-reasoned mass data storage plan for you. The complexity of digital image storage doesn’t emerge until we have hundreds, or thousands, of images scattered around our hard drive. As the volume of images increases the need for organization and logical divisions between groups of photos climbs….
In these four video tutorials, I explain how each of the View Modes–the Grid, the Loupe, the Survey, and the Compare view–can help you identify your best photographs. Each of the View Modes can be a huge help when you are sorting through your images seeking out your very best compositions. Carefully reviewing your captures, and identifying your best photographs, is a critical skill in today’s all digital world.

Both your digital images and your Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog files can be moved from one drive to another drive. Moving your photos, or your Lightroom Catalog, from one disk to another is not a hard process. The big question though is what arrangement of these puzzle pieces best suits your needs?
Searching for duplicate images in an Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog can be a real pain. Scrolling through folder after folder of images looking for duplicate photographs is time consuming and inefficient.

You must know how to select multiple files using your mouse and keyboard to get the most out of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Tracking sales and editorial submissions are part of the business of professional photography. As a working artist, I need to keep accurate records about where my images have been published but how to track sales and submissions without putting undesirable information into each file’s metadata? My solution to this problem is to use Collections and Collection Sets inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
The Collections feature in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom really shines when you need to pull together a group of images for a specific project. What most Lightroom users usually miss though is that clicking and dragging is not the most efficient way to add images into your current project. In this video tutorial, I demonstrate how to use Collections, and the Set as Target Collection option, to quickly gather up my favorite images for my portfolio.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom gets upset when the path that it has recorded to a specific photograph is suddenly broken. Moving files, and folders, that have been added into your Catalog using your computer’s operating system breaks the path and thus upsets the index! If you have broken the path to one of your folders then the Find Missing Folders command can be quite useful. You can use this command to teach Lightroom the new path to your images. This command is also quite useful when we want to move a folder full of images from one place to another.
There have been lots of reader questions lately about how to search and organize a large image library using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

My digital camera takes great pictures but it gives them really lousy filenames. This is a big problem because the file’s name is a really important detail for a professional photographer. Using a custom Filenaming Template during the Import process in Photoshop Lightroom makes generating unique filenames easy!
