Folder and Album Creation
So we've already shown you how to work with the photos on import right after you get em'. So I clicked on, the last time I imported something and I started moving stuff around. But also realize that there's a lot of organizational structure that can happen in here. That's not just make a album and put it in there. But you also have the ability to create folders. So notice that I created a folder here called Family Photos. So I can open that up by hitting that little triangle and I've got a series of family photo albums within a folder. So inside of there I can simply go grab that personal history and drag it into there, and now I'm organizing myself a little bit better. So I don't have to go stroll through a whole bunch of different options I can just organize those into Family Photos. And then when I want to look at family photo stuff it's all right there. Also, I can create and the way to create a folder is just simply click on that same plus and hit, Create Folder. And I'm gonna nam...
e this, Portfolios and hit create. So now I've got a folder called, Portfolios so then I can take my portfolio work and put it inside that folder. And I can take my drone stuff and put it in the portfolio, and I can put these two in there. And now all I have left is my CreativeLive stuff that I've been collecting right here. So those are all of my ones that I've haven't organized but you can see how we can get really organized and collapses so that we're really just work on the, I wanna work on these or I wanna work on those. So if you use the albums I would highly suggest that you use album folders to make sure that you are organizing your stuff in a way that you can find them easily. There's nothing worst than trying to look for a photograph and you're scrolling around and hunting and looking, and hunting and looking, and right? That's really quite difficult to do. So we don't want to do that. So we're going to organize ourselves this way instead. Okay? Alright, so again you have the ability to look at all of your photos at the same time. You can look at just recently added photos and you can see like these stuff on Friday. Stuff two hours ago ecetara, and then you can also see em' by date so you can say, Ah I wanna look at everything from say 2016, and so then that's all of my stuff from 2016. Okay? So that is how we organize. It's very, very simple inside of Lightroom. Now, there are other ways to start organizing your photos and that is through, stars and flags and things like that.
