Lightroom Class: Keywording Designer Kits and Batch Renaming
By DS101 on in 2012 Lightroom Supplies with 19 Comments
Wow – hope you all had a fabulous weekend converting PNG files and importing into Lightroom. If you finished your entire catalog or made any progress, will you share in the comments of this post? I love hearing about progress…
This week we are moving right along into keywords. Keywords are one of my favorite things in Lightroom. If you setup your preferences the way I taught you, Lightroom will write them INSIDE your files which tags your files in a way that if they were proverbially dumped upside down into your hard drive and scattered everywhere, you could quickly categorize them and put them in their places again. How cool is that?
Today we are going to tackle the VERY BASICS of keywording. This is the foundation of the entire supply system – keywording by Designer and Kit. It involves keywords, moving files and you may even possibly want to wait to start until you read my next post on importing a keyword list (I’m just trying to make your life easier).
Another thing I added to this video – what to do if a Designer names all their files the same without kits in the filename. Don’t worry I explain it better in the video.
So here you go – the video on how to start keywording your supplies in Lightroom.
