Lightroom Workflow Tutorial - Organize Your Photos

Updated for 2016 with a new Bonus Tutorial - How to combine two Lightroom libraries!

I updated the Lightroom Workflow - Organize Your Photos tutorial for 2016. It now includes a new Bonus tutorial "How to combine two Lightroom libraries" This is a very common problem that confuses many people but I've found a simple solution.

Keeping all of your photos organized can be such a problem, it can be for me too sometimes! I have tens of thousands of photos; some are awesome while others are kinda less than average. I've worked hard over the years to come up with a system that works for me, and I want to share it with you! This tutorial includes:

- One hour, step-by-step video tutorial of my photo organization system
- NEW Tutorial - How to combine Lightroom libraries
- Companion eBook that walks your through each step
- Set of RAW images files you can practice HDR with
