Lightroom Smart Collections
Tutorial with Mike Le Gray
One of Lightroom's main strengths is it's cataloguing and sorting tools, making organising your thousands of photos a breeze.
Mike Le Gray, a photographer and trainer, shares with us his methods of organising your photos in such a way that locating and working with them becomes almost effortless. He explains exactly what Smart Collections are and why we should use them.
He then goes on to illustrate the difference between these collections and the standard 'non-smart' collections. In the process, he throws in a few tips about rating with stars and colours, such as why you may want to use stars and colour labels, and why you can utilise this practise to further improve your Smart Collections. As we watch, we see how to set multiple rules in a Smart Collection and then how and why we may want to export one.
