Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Rating photos, part of Up and Running with Lightroom 3.
After you import photos into Lightroom, of course the first thing you want…to do is review them.…In this movie, I will show you some features in the Library module for reviewing…and rating photos, and I will suggest a way to use these features to really…organize photos in a real shoot.…The first step is to select the folder in the Folders panel on the left that…that contains the photos you want review, and they will appear in the main window…as thumbnail previews.…If you're not in Grid view like I am, then in the toolbar, click the Grid view icon here.…
By the way, I use the menu on the right side of the toolbar to select just the…features that I want, and I selected some features that are commonly used in…the reviewing process.…Those are the Pick and the Reject flags here, the stars and the color labels.…The first thing I do when I am reviewing a new shoot is to run through it…quickly here in Grid view using the scrollbar on the right side of the main window.…As I look at my photos, if I see some that I think are real duds, either…
