Lightroom Series: Library View

Part two of my Lightroom series with an overview of the Library view. There are a lot of helpful features in the library view that some might not know about. If you're in the folders tab on the left hand side you can now search through the folders for keywords. So if you're looking for a specific folder but aren't exactly sure where it is, you can do a search and Lightroom will find all the folders with that word. 

For example if you're trying to find all the folders from a particular school you have photographed, if the folder names have the school in them, you can search for the school name and they will all show up.

You can also tag folders with color labels which is a pretty helpful feature if you want a quick visual reminder where certain folders are.

The collections tab is going to get its own video because there are a lot of power features in collections including client proofing. 

I've done a video in the past on the Publish Services tab. This is a very under used feature if you want to post photos to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or other social media sites directly from Lightroom. You can check out that video here.

I also talked about the different photo view modes (grid, compare, survey, etc). All have their place and are useful tools when going through and selecting photos.
