Creative challenge n.1 – Let’s organise!

Let’s organize!

This challenge will help you organize your Lightroom catalogue and folders and make your workflow effective

Your tasks…

Your task is to organize your folders in the hard drive and Lightroom catalogue / collections and create a workflow that fits your needs.

Tell us more…

Share with all of us how you decided to organize your Catalogue, folders, collections in Lightroom, so we can get inspired from you.

Here are some of the ideas what and how you can do it:

  • Back up your Lightroom Catalogue first, before you do any changes there
  • Then, go through your images in the current Lightroom Catalogue you have, and organize them – you can reject those you don’t want, you can star or rate the others. Be careful not to delete the rejected files from your hard drive. If you want to delete some images, delete those that you are 300% sure, you will never use them in the future.
  • Decide if you want to use one Lightroom catalogue, or it is better to create a few Lightroom catalogues for you, such as for clients, for recipes for your blog, or maybe family and travel images…
  • If you want to keep all images in one catalogue, organize these images into collections.
  • If you want to create new catalogues for each category, remember to back up your existing catalogue, save the back up on the hard drive, and then, create new catalogues.
  • Now, go to your hard drive and create a system of folders that fits your needs. This will be the system you will use for saving your RAW files from now.
  • If you have any doubts, ask me first!
