Asset management using Lightroom 3

This free chapter download is ideal for photographers who would like to learn how to implement a workflow that effectively manages their photographic files that are spread over multiple hard drives.

This chapter covers why I think Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 is the best database for amateur and professional photographers. It also outlines a four step workflow for photographers. This workflow looks at the optimum way to create a master catalog, creating a second temporary working catalog when working on location using a laptop computer, backing up the working catalog and files to an external drive on location and then combining catalogs and archiving images when the location shoot has been completed.
