Putting It All Together

  1. Select a few photos in the Library’s Grid view and dim the lights. After inspecting them, turn the lights back on.
  2. In the Filmstrip or Grid view, select several photos and group them into a stack.
  3. Use the keyboard to collapse and expand that stack several times.
  4. In the Grid view, add another photo to the stack, and then remove it.
  5. In the Filmstrip or any of the four view modes, manually mark some photos as rejects and others as picks. Use the Painter tool to do the same to other photos.
  6. Apply various ratings and labels to some photos using the keyboard and the Painter tool.
  7. Create a new label set and make it your default set. Then switch back to the original default set of labels.
  8. In the Filmstrip or Grid view, select two photos and use the Compare view’s Zoom slider to see how they differ.
  9. In the Filmstrip or Grid view, select several photos and use the Survey view to see how they differ. Use the X button to cull out the weakest photos.
  10. Select the culled photos and press the Backspace/Delete key. Use the dialog to decide if you want to remove them from Lightroom or delete them from your hard disk.
