Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom 5

Store, Tag, Create. (It’s that simple.)
Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom 5 is a Multimedia Book that presents a simple and comprehensive method for building a great photo library.

You want to sort out your image library? Streamline your workflow? Get your images and collections out into the real world quickly and easily?

Organizing Your Photos for Lightroom 5 brings clarity and simplicity to these sometimes confusing processes. By stepping back to view all your photographs through my three-step approach, you will be able to create and share your images knowing your collection rests on strong foundations.

Join me on a guided tour of discovery, as I use my own extensive image library to explain how to take the work out of organization so that you can focus on your creativity. Each process is detailed step by step in both video and text, along with large doses of insider info and handy shortcuts.


This Multimedia Book is written for Adobe Lightroom 5 users, but the approach can apply to earlier versions.  Whether you are a beginning user or a veteran user, all will gain insight, tips, and most important, assurance that your own photo library is well-organized for the future. Plus you’re guaranteed to learn new tools and approaches that many Adobe pros have not yet discovered.  And you get to see it all in action in my own image library. I’ll tell you what works, what doesn’t, and the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

Some of the 5-star reviews on Amazon:Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom 5  “is a must-have resource for Lightroom users. The format is excellent in that it explains the technique in easy to understand text, followed by video presentations that illustrate the technique. You can, if you wish, just follow the serial videos. Chapters are laid out for the novice or skip to appropriate subjects for more advanced users. Peter lines out how to set up your library from the beginning to decrease your workload and make it simple to categorize and locate images. Can not image using Lr5 without this book.” – Joel Lillevig, January 27, 2014


“I found techniques that I had never considered, like setting up special smart collections to find specific unkeyworded images. The clear writing and videos and considerations from the ground up will help Lightroom beginners. More experienced hands are likely to find a few Lightroom asset management techniques that will make Lightroom even more useful.” – Conrad Obregon, January 25, 2014


“I have found this information to be very helpful in in tidying up my image library as well as in helping me streamline my workflow. Particularly useful in my view, is Peter’s thorough explanation of how best to work with Lightroom Collections. Used in the way Peter outlines, I find Collections to be an invaluable workflow tool that I had not previously used to full advantage. Whether you are just starting out with Lightroom, or have been using it since version 1 or 2, you will benefit from this book.” – Richard Anderson, January 26, 2014
