Viewing and managing your images
In the Library module, Lightroom offers a variety of viewing modes, tools, and options to help you examine, compare, sort, mark, and group your images. During the import process you applied common metadata in the form of keyword tags to the selection of images as a whole. As you review your photos in the Library module you can add another layer of organization to your catalog, flagging some of the images as picks and others as rejects, assigning ratings, and applying tags and labels to individual files or to subsets of the imported selection.
The Library module also provides the sophisticated search functions and customizable filters that will enable you to leverage the metadata you attach to your images. You can sort your images by category, subject, or any other association and create Collections and Smart Collections to group them—making it easy to find exactly the photos you want no matter how extensive your catalog.
In this Lesson, you’ll explore the different ways to preview and arrange your images.
