As a Lightroom user I love its ability to quickly sort through my pictures so effortlessly especially when I want to quickly see the images I made over the course of one year.
Assuming you do nothing but rate your pictures after importing them into your catalog, all you need to do is go back to the library module and select “All Photographs”
When the search results come up, the default view is going to be a grid view of everything you photograph in the year you selected.
In my case, I click on 2015, so every picture I shot that I rated with a star will now be displayed.
If I wanted to further automate this process next year, I can simply create a “Smart Collection”
While you’re in the Library module, look for the “Collections” panel on the left and choose “Create Smart Collection”
It’s the time of the year when we take inventory and look over the memories and pictures we’ve captured.
It used to be I would dread this chore, Lightroom makes this too easy.
I just set up a Smart Collection now and change the date range and forget about until the end of the year.
Have a Prosperous and Happy New Year everyone.
I realize not many of you say much in the way of comments but you’re out there.
