Easy Adobe Lightroom Filing Tips & Wax Lips
As a Composite Photographer, do you ever feel overwhelmed by all the photos you have for a project and struggle to keep them organized?
In today’s video, I’m going to show you how I easily organize all my photos for a Compositing project within Adobe Lightroom.
Standard Disclaimer before I get started: My Composites always range from 30 photos for a simple project, up to 100 for bigger projects, so organization is essential for an efficient workflow.
Now, pucker those wax lips up and let’s jump right in.
Efficiency and Organization
If you’re considering taking your Compositing to the Next Level to start making a living with it, you’re going to have to think about ways to make your process easier and faster.
Easier and Faster equals more Money.
For me, I’m always looking for ways to become more efficient in my processes without sacrificing the quality of my art.
If the quality is sacrificed it’s not efficient, and I don’t do it.
In this video, I share one way you can make your process, and life, much easier by simply organizing your photos within a nice filing system in Adobe Lightroom.
Starting with 3 main files that include a Captures file, a Selects file, and a Masters file, I always make sure I have an original copy of the photo in case I ever have to refer back or start over.
Building this redundancy into your process ensures you always have a backup and reduces stress.

That’s a Wrap
It’s commonly said that “Success is in the Details”, which I 100% agree with, and to stand a chance at success as a Composite Photographer, the details begin with building efficient and organized processes.
This simple Adobe Lightroom filing tip has saved me countless time with my Composites and I know it will save you time.
