    Workflow feasibility - struggling to get the big picture

    hi everyone, As a long-timer Lightroom 6 user, I am trying to get a sense of whether i can satisfy all my needs with/within the Adobe software for photographers. The Adobe online help articles didn't... help me do so. They are topic-specific and i feel, fail to explain the big picture well. I...

    One catalog for everything (from mobiles images to SLR etc).

    I know this is going to stir a pot with people and you're always going to get people doing things massively differently. I think this is a question where the pros might have to take a back seat on. This is more a hobbyist approach than pro. So basically in a time where cloud sync is a reality...

    Does Classic Know Which Photos Were Previously Imported From LR CC?

    Let's say you are traveling and take 25 photos (just for example, there will be more of course). And you 'import" 10 of them onto your iPad or MacBook Pro via Lightroom CC at the hotel. They sync to the cloud, then download to Lightroom Classic (home based). Now, you get home and want to...

    Classic vs CC

    I've been using Lightroom (now Classic) for many years now. I have not yet used Lightroom CC and I am trying to figure out if moving to CC is something I should do, or if I should just stick with Classic for now. I would be happy to read posts or pages from Victoria's books if anyone can point...

    On the go workflow

    I wanted to give LRCC a try on a project I'm working on, and I'd love to hear some feedback from people who've used both CC and Classic CC. I typically work on a single device, a Surface Book 2, and I initially transfer my RAW files to an external drive (via LR Classic import) and build both 1:1...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post to this forum and what seems to be an extremely knowledgeable community! I hope I haven't overseen an existing thread on this topic - but are there people here who have adopted a workflow whereby they edit photos in Lightroom CC on a tablet, then make...

    Cull multiple images from several imports into a single location?

    I want to organize many images in my catalog taken over the course of many years in to one location in Lightroom. I am looking for suggestion on the correct workflow: to first select all the images across multiple imports; second, edit all images after I have chosen them from my catalog.

    Workflow - mostly Classic with a little CC

    I would like to work 90% on Classic (home computer) and occasional imports on CC on my laptop when traveling. Is there any hybrid workflow that makes sense of this all? I did some this past week and now in my Mac Mini (LR Classic) I have new date-based folders, which is okay, but they are not...

    Questions on the "Editing Workflow" in Victoria's Lightroom FAQ book

    I just discovered the Editing Workflow flowchart. Adobe PDF reader says it's page 322 of the book. (If you don't have Victoria's book, by all means do get it, unless you are one of the real gurus in this forum.) This flowchart is the most detailed editing workflow I've found, and it seems...

    I am using Lightroom CC 2015.8 on a Mac and Lightroom Mobile and would like to have all photos I import from my camera's memory card into my LR desktop catalog be automatically available on my iPad.

    Pausing Smart Collections

    So, I've read up on a few workflows (including Workflow smart collections – John Beardsworth) and come up with a system that seems to work pretty good so far. It seems all good on paper, rather... but, I'm a little confused by maybe the intended usage of some of the smart collections. A "No...

    Best Practices for NAS Centric Workflow?

    Lightroom Catalogs have to be on a local volume of course. But referenced images can go on a network drive, which is perfect when you have a lot of RAW images, etc. For my part, I sometimes run into trouble because the volume always gets mounted as "home" or "home-1" etc. which can be a problem...

    Need help with student critique workflow

    We have been using Lightroom CC to critique my students' images by importing each card and then working in the Develop Module to try different cropping, exposure, etc. As files have gotten larger, the import/copy process has become too long for each card. We would like to use the Add option, but...
