Ted’s Lightroom Tips: LIGHTROOM SMART COLLECTIONS

Lightroom Smart Collections: Work Smarter

One Minute Lightroom Tip.

Lightroom Smart Collections provide remarkable assistance for organizing photos without duplicating images. Here is an example:

Most of the time, I search for fast or slow shutter images. So, rather than checking the metadata of thousands of photos, I created two Lightroom Smart Collections. Therefore, Lightroom places pictures in these collections automatically! 

1- In the Lightroom Library module, click on the (+) on the “Collection” tan

2- From the dropdown menu, select “CREATE SMART COLLECTION..”

3- Name your collection. I named this one “Fast Shutter.”

4- Click on the “RATING” and hover over “CAMERA INFO” and select “SHUTTER SPEED.”

5- From the Rules dropdown menu, select “IS LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO” and then set the rule for the minimum shutter speed. In this example, I set it at 1/1000sec. And click on CREATE!

6- That is all there is to it!

You can assign different rules for Lightroom Smart Collections to organize pictures automatically.
