How To Use Folders In Adobe Lightroom 5

Nice 3:30 minutes video about how to see and manage your folders in Adobe Lightroom 5 by kelbymediagroup on Youtube.

This video is all about folders. It’s probably one of the most-asked-about topics I hear from Lightroom users everywhere. The Folders panel in the Library module is where your photos are stored. So, before keywords, collections, stars, ratings, smart collections or anything else like that, you have folders in their simplest form. And understanding how that panel works is important. So here’s a few little tips and tricks around working with folders that can make it a little easier to navigate.

This Lightroom Setting May Save Your Live



As fstoppers puts it: it’s the most important setting you should care about in Lightroom, and it is turned off by default. This setting comes to help in the case your Lightroom catalog gets corrupted. The setting we are talking about is “Automatically write changes into XMP”. The XMP files are so-called “sidecar files” and they contain all settings you applied to a picture. If the setting is on, Lightroom will constantly save all the changes you made into an XMP file. Should your catalog disappear the changes you made to your precious pics are still there. Not bad, uh? There is a drawback though: this setting could slow down Lightroom a bit.

You can turn it on in the Catalog Settings of Lightroom

  • Mac OSX > Lightroom > Catalog Settings > Metadata
  • Windows > Edit > Catalog Settings > Metadata

An XMP file will be created only if you work with CR2 files. If you work with DNG, JPEG, TIFF, or PNG files all the XMP data will be written directly inside these files. Another drawback is that there is no history of your edits that will be saved with XMP data.

An alternative to this setting, if you want to stay on the safe side, is a smart backup strategy, which, among other things, means that you should backup your LR catalog to different places.
