Project Description

Develop and put into place an organizational scheme in Lightroom

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to develop and put into place an organizational scheme in Lightroom. You can use Lightroom to process photos from anything, so this project is the perfect way to create a framework that makes your photos easier to find, easier to edit, and easier to export when you need them.

DELIVERABLE

Share a screenshot of your Lightroom workspace, briefly explain your organization system, and tell us how this system helps you be more efficient. Here are a few examples of the techniques you might try, screengrab, and share with the class:

  • custom watermarks
  • backup settings
  • recovering missing files
  • photo ratings
  • colored labels
  • flagged photos
  • keywords
  • metadata
  • collection hierarchy
  • stacks
  • filters
  • publishing via plugin
