“Perfect ! Incredible !This information is so much valuable . As being in Digital age, Organizing , Archiving images and to retrieve images is like pulling your hair out and being so unproductive. A big thanks to Kristina's for sharing this course. The Metadata and all other information is a must to apply and makes the Workflow so much better and fun. Thank you !”

“Fantastic! I have been convincing myself I don't need or have time do to this class since it launched. I am embarrassed to say that I needed this class MUCH more than I thought I did and after implementing Kristina's methods I don't sob at the thought of culling or sheepishly ignore backing up! Thank you!”


“Thank you. Overall great info. I am afraid i was expecting something else. I was missing information for Landscape and Travel Photographers. Unfortunately I couldn't find any solutions for categories like - Flowers - Mountains - special People - keywords or categories or different Lightroom Catalogs.... with that I could find pictures again. Unfortunately, date and name are of little use in my case... that is very basic.. - But I like the way you teach! Thanks!”

“So, I really loved this. I just spent the morning watching. I have a few questions of course. I don't know where to ask them but I was wondering how to move files from your Harddrive (if you use Lightroom to Import) onto an external harddrive in lightroom. I would like to know how to rename files that are already in lightroom and attach metadata etc. I didn't quite understand that portion. I watched the portion that you took your messy files and organized them but I didn't see how you attached metadata.”

Jade W.

“Really good information overall, though I wish there was a little more info about the Lightroom Catalog itself. Like what happens when my catalog gets too big and slows everything down? Why do some people work from multiple catalogs and what's the advantage of that? Overall great info though, I picked up some good new tips & tricks.”

Kelly K.

“I'm not a Lightroom person -- I've tried it several times over the years and always resorted back to Bridge, however, thanks to this video series I'm finally able to see some advantages by using LR over Bridge. Needless to say, I'm off to download LR and I have a sneaking suspicion that I won't be uninstalling it after 2 hours. LOL Thanks to Kristina and TPM. Excellent stuff here.”

“Excellent lessons in how to get and be organised to make the life of a photographer more steam lined and less stressful. Thank you!”

Lisette v.

“This is the best information I have found to organize, backup and retrieve images in LR. Kristina uses basic language to go step by step from post shoot to file management, culling and more! A big THANK YOU for this information and I look forward to more of your video's.”
