Frequently Asked Questions

What are collectioncollections in lightroom?

Collections in Lightroom are a key tool for organizing images. There are some benefits to working with collections and some things that it helps to know about working with them. 1. Collections: Smart or regular?

What is a lightroom catalog and why do you need one?

One topic that has come up numerous times is Lightroom catalogs. “Wait, what’s the difference between a Lightroom catalog, folder, and collection?” Let me go ahead and try to explain it (because it took me too long to figure it all out). Simply put, a Lightroom catalog houses the “edits” of your photos.

Whats the difference between lightroom classic and lightroom cc?

Lightroom CC would prefer you keep all your stuff in the cloud so it can sling it out to any device you want to work on. Lightroom Classic can do that in some fashion with smart previews, but your catalog and archive ultimately belong on a PC (and your backups). Adobe has been refining its desktop photo editor since 2016.

How do you organize your lightroom photos?

Collections - used to group photos together and access them across all Lightroom panels. Smart Collections - used to gather images together automatically using criteria you set. Collection Sets - used for organizing collections and smart collections. Most photographers I know use a folder system to keep their photos organized. This is smart.
