Organizing Photos

Tagged with , ,

In this video, you are going to learn how to find, browse and organize your photo library. You can import photos from your camera card, add metadata, keywords all in one step. With auto advance turned on, quickly cull through a large batch of images and apply ratings, labels and more. See how a catalog folded is created to make a shortcut for your favorite or most- used folders of photos. A folder designated as cataloged is cached in the background to improve the speed of loading those folders (and subfolders) and their photos, making it ideal for portfolios, your best photos, or your primary library of photos. See how to use Albums to create collections and utilize the Filters pane’s powerful search options.

      Hi Subias,

      Albums are basic photo albums that you can add photos into so that you can access them quickly. Smart Albums are albums that use different criteria (i.e. Lens Length, Aperture, Time of Day, ETC) to search and bring photos into the album from your catalogued folders. Folders are just areas on your computer where you have photos stored. When you create a Cataloged Folder it makes a cache of the image preview files and the metadata information for your photos so that you can browse through very quickly. Also with Cataloged Folders they detect changes within photos so that when you do modify anything the cache files will update. Does that make sense?

      Let me know if I need to explain better!

      Dylan

      Yes, if you go into that subfolder, you can right click on an image and select Set Folder Preview
