My Lightroom workflow

  • Import photos
  • Reject bad photos, and delete them from disk
  • Rate
  • Filter
  • Tagging with keywords
  • Apply camera profile
  • Straighten/Crop
  • Correct exposure/levels
  • Colour calibration
  • Masked adjustments
  • Sharpen/DeNoise/Scale
I don't permanently delete many images, but if they're clearly no good from the preview then I don't need to pay to store them!
I rate in quite a crude way. Anything with 1 or more stars will be processed further. Anything with 0 stars is filtered out from further processing/uploading (but kept for the future just in case).
Keywords are just there to help find photos in the future - and are preserved when uploading to Flickr which helps.
I use Topaz Labs
software to enhance images at the end of the process, when I've finished working with all the RAW data and am almost ready to export the image.
