Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Update photo attributes, part of Cleaning Up Your Mess in Lightroom Classic CC.
- [Voiceover] Lightroom provides several options…for identifying specific photos.…For example, your favorites versus not-so-favorite images.…There are the pic flags, where you pick or reject images,…star ratings, where you can assign one through five stars…to an image, and color labels.…If you haven't been completely consistent…about how you use these different attributes,…or if you changed your workflow…to change from pic flags to star ratings, for example,…you'll want to go back through your older images…and change those attributes.…
So, for example, I have some images here…that I've assigned pic flags to,…but really, I prefer to use star ratings…to identify my favorite images.…And so, I'm going to use pic flags…as our example here,…and I'm going to change any image that has a pic flag…to an image with a one-star rating,…which, for me personally, one star means…this is a keeper.…I'll then review those images later in my workflow,…and maybe upgrade some images…to two or three stars if they're especially good,…
