Get your Lightroom catalog in order with this collection of tips and best practices for managing and organizing photos in Lightroom.
- Hi there, I'm Tim Grey, and I'm here to help you clean up your mess in Lightroom. I've worked with a lot of photographers, and I've seen a lot of consistent mistakes when it comes to organizing photos in Lightroom. That includes using more catalogs than you really need, having a folder structure that doesn't make a lot of sense, having folders that are missing, photos that are missing, all sorts of mistakes. I think I've seen just about every possible mistake when it comes to getting disorganized in Lightroom, and I'm here to help you get organized to clean up your mess, to consolidate catalogs, to locate missing photos and folders, to redefine your folder structure, basically everything you need to get your Lightroom catalog cleaned up so that you'll be organized and then you can have a consistent workflow moving forward so that you'll always be able to find the photo you need when you need it.
