I have created a video explaining the pros and cons of using single versus multiple catalogs that you can watch here. With that in mind, I know that there will be some photographers who’s workflow require using multiple catalogs. However, there are a few items that need to be set up every time you select File > New Catalog (such as Identity Plates and Collections). To avoid this repetitive step, I would suggest that you create a “template” catalog. In the template you could set up your Identity plate and Collections. Then simply duplicate the catalog for your new client and go right to work.

Note: To create a new catalog select File > New Catalog, choose where to save it and give it a name. Set up your identity plate (for a video about Creating Your Own Identity plate click here). You will need to  import one photo into the catalog (any photo) to set up your Collection Sets and Collections.

    Thanks for all the wonderful information from your Blog and Tutorials. Is there a way to combine multiple catalogs down to a single catalog?
