Simple, Yet Smart ‘Color Labels’ Idea From One of My Readers

Traffic lights

After taking my survey yesterday, Andy Ramsay, posted a comment with the very simple, clever, and effective way he uses Color Labels in Lightroom. Here’s what he wrote:

“I use traffic-light-style colour labels to identify ‘Needs Work in Photoshop’ [Red], ‘Been worked in Photoshop, Needs final LR adjustments’ [Amber], and ‘Ready for Release’ [Green]. …My portfolio smart collection is built to only use photos that are coloured Green and tagged ‘portfolio’.”

This is the type of stuff we all tend to over-think. Love the simplicity. Thanks for sharing that, Andy (and I thought some of you might find it useful). 🙂
