Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Define your real workflow, part of Cleaning Up Your Mess in Lightroom Classic CC.
- [Voiceover] Within Lightroom, we organize our…photos in a variety of ways,…and it's important to think in advance…about how you want to organize your photos…before you start cleaning things up in Lightroom.…In other words, before we can start…cleaning up our mess in Lightroom,…we need to understand what clean looks like.…For example, what sort of folder structure…do you want to use?…Where do you want to store your photos?…What sort of folder names do you want to use?…Are you going to assign lots of keywords…or not very many keywords?…How are you going to identify your favorite photos?…Will you use star ratings or perhaps pick flags,…or maybe even color labels?…In other words, get familiar with the…various options that are available inside of Lightroom…for managing your photos, and decide…what your organizational structure,…what your workflow, is going to look like.…
Once you understand what your workflow should look like,…you'll have a better sense of what…needs to be done to clean up…your existing Lightroom catalog.…
