Lightroom has a wide variety of tools for organizing and finding your images, and one of the most useful features is Smart Collections. If you have not yet taken advantage of Smart Collections, check out this fantastic video tutorial that will show you what they are and how to take advantage of them for organizing your photos.
Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this helpful video tutorial will show you the ins and outs of using Smart Collections in Lightroom. As you probably know, Lightroom allows you to create albums of photos, called “Collections.” Smart Collections take this a step further by automatically populating the folder based on whatever parameters you specify. This can be based on things like ratings, color labels, or keywords or by metadata, such as ISO level, when the photo was taken, or just about any other piece of relevant information you can think of. Even better, you can link together requirements using logical connectors, such as “taken in 2021” and “rated greater than three stars.” They are a tremendously useful way to keep updated collections of different images available without having to put in a lot of manual work to populate them. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Morganti.
