Culling photos in Adobe Lightroom:

  1. Use the star rating system: Go through your photos and give them a star rating based on how much you like them. For example, give your best photos five stars, your good photos four stars, and so on. This will help you quickly filter through your photos and focus on the best ones.
  2. Use the flagging system: In addition to the star rating system, you can also use the flagging system to mark photos for deletion or for further review. Flag the photos that you know you want to delete or that you’re unsure about.
  3. Use the “compare” feature: If you’re unsure about two similar photos, use the “compare” feature in Lightroom to view them side by side. This will help you quickly compare the photos and choose the best one.
  4. Use the “reject” feature: Once you’ve identified the photos you want to delete, use the “reject” feature in Lightroom to mark them for deletion. This will make it easy to filter out the rejected photos and delete them all at once.
  5. Take breaks: Culling through a lot of photos can be overwhelming, so it’s important to take breaks to rest your eyes and clear your mind. Take breaks every hour or so to prevent eye strain and to help you stay focused on the task at hand.
