The Truth About This Whole "Cataloging" Thing

Last week I created a video about my experience with organizing your photos by date vs. organizing them by some kind of descriptive folder.

Tip – Selecting Multiple Photos for Print

Happy Friday fellow Lightroomers. Here’s a cool tip that came directly from a question I was asked this week. Let’s say you’re in the Print module and have selected 3 photos to go into your print layout or to just print on separate pages in general.
