One of the things I liked about Lightroom was the way it organized images, and allowed me to find things months or years later. Does PL4 have a similar system that I haven’t found yet?
What I’ve done so far, is to create a top-level folder named PhotoLab inside my “Pictures” folder on the Mac - just like my lightroom and luminar folders.
Within that folder I’ve created “main” topics, such as India, USA, Personal, and so on.
Within the USA folder I created folders for different locations, such as Colorado, Miami Beach, New York, and so on.
Within the Miami Beach folder I now have folders for 2019, and 2020 - will add 2021 soon.
Within those folders, I have folders for events, or functions, or something to remind me of where I was and what I was doing - what the folders are about.
This may or may not be the best way to organize my photos - I did this for Lightroom, and I’m just following the same organization. I can change it if there’s a better way to do this. That got me to wondering if PL has some organizing tools I’m not yet aware of, to help me find my photos in the future.
Finally, if I re-organize my Lightroom photos, I need to do this from inside the Lightroom program. If I do it using the normal tools, like using Finder to re-arrange things, that confuses Lightroom. Is PL the same? If I want to rename, or move, a folder, is there a reason to do it from with PL, rather than Finder?
