When I first starting using Lightroom several years ago, a BIG mistake I made was not understanding how important the import feature was.
One of my missions at Pretty Presets, through our live webinars, the Lightroom Lab workshop, and our blog tutorials, is to educate new Lightroom users on the awesomeness of the Lightroom Library and file management features, which includes the import process.
All that said, here are 3 simple settings you should change today (or check to make sure you have selected) and why they will make importing and accessing your images easier the next time you import photos in Lightroom.
The settings I'm highlighting are found in the Preferences menu, which you find on a Mac by clicking on Lightroom (top left corner), then Preferences, or on a PC by clicking Edit, then Preferences.
Once you're in the Preferences menu, click on the General tab, if you don't land there automatically.
Then, under the "Import Options" make sure these three choices are selected:
By taking a minute of your time RIGHT NOW to make sure these settings are selected, you will save yourself lots of time down the road!
