Introduction

The key to good photo asset management is to maintain a well-organized photo catalog. This can prove to be a daunting task when you are managing thousands of photos at a time. Thankfully, Lightroom includes several organizational features that can help you manage large photo libraries with ease.

In this chapter, you learn how to rotate and flip photos so that they appear the way you like in the Library Content area. You also learn how to apply searchable attributes, such as 0–5 star ratings, pick or reject flags, and custom color labels.

This chapter also explains how to control the sort order for the thumbnails in the Content area and Filmstrip. You learn the various ways you can sort images, as well as how to change their sort direction from ascending to descending and vice versa.

Lastly, you learn how to conserve room in the Content area by stacking related photos into groups, and how to conserve room in the catalog by removing unusable photos.
