I wonder how can I keep all of my pics in the same LR catalog while hiding certain pics -- such as nude pics of my girlfriend(s) -- from a casual browser?  Ideally, they'd not show up in any thumbs, details, etc.  I'd need to turn a switch to work with them, and shut them close when done.  However, I do the DAM workflow by card, and these pics are not the only ones on a card often -- so I'd be hesitant to pluck them out of the natural sequence in which pics were taken -- it would create holes in the camera-assigned file IDs, etc.  When showing pics to friends or creating slide shows from the LR, I don't want to fret that those pics would show up.  Any ideas?

Normally I recommend using a single catalogue but this is one of those cases where I think it best to put them in another catalogue.

John -- thanks for the reminder! 

I wonder how, with the two catalogs, one would divide the buckets/folders between them?...

Cheers,
Alexy

It's a difficult issue. Mature database-driven applications don't generally force the user to break up the database in order to hide certain data - they have user name and security level structures. But there's nothing like that in Lightroom (or Aperture). I hope we'll see this in Lightroom before too long, perhaps as part of networked catalogues (it's more a matter of design - Portfolio's single user client has it) but I wouldn't hold my breath.

You could run a separate parallel bucket system - yuck. Or maybe once you burn the backup, replace the online versions of the files with placeholder images and rebuild the previews? Not an easy one - hopefully others will come up with more practical approaches.

Alexy,
I'm afraid that I can't think of a good solution either, other than total segregation.

Why not just stack them under another image (with clothes on!), collapse the stack, and assign a special keyword to the top image.

If you are going to have a separate bucket system for types of photos that takes a long time to fill a DVD, you could switch to buckets the size of CDs and burn to CDs.  At some point after you have 6 or 7 of these buckets, you can then burn them all to a DVD.
