LR 3 – Advanced Smart Collections

With all of the parameters available to determine the filters for Smart Collections, I often use them to check my work. For example, adding a Smart Collection with the rules set to Copyright / Is / Unknown, helps me to make sure that I have applied my copyright to all of my images. Likewise, setting the rule to Keywords / Are Empty, helps to show any missing keywords. And this is just the beginning, setting multiple rules will allow you to filter on a Date Range (Edit Date / In the Last / 60 Days)  AND Rating / Is / 2 Star or Greater AND Folder / Contains /xx and so on!

To get even more sophisticated refining your Smart Collection filters, Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) + -click the plus icon within the New Smart Collection dialog ( the icon will change to a hash/pound sign) for additional rules (Any/All/None of the following are true).

LR3 – Removing Images from Collections

Tapping the Delete/Backspace key when in a Collection will remove the image from the Collection but the image will not be removed from the Lightroom catalog.

To quickly navigate to the image in the Folder  and delete it, (as oppose to deleting the image from the Collection), Control (Mac) / Right Mouse (Win) -click on the image, choose “Go To Folder in Library “ and delete the image from the Folder.

Tapping the  Delete/Backspace key when in a Smart Collection will display a dialog instructing you to change the parameters of the file so that it no longer matches that of the Smart Collection’s “rules” or delete it from the Catalog.
