My most popular course that teaches you everything you need to know about editing and workflows!
Join me as I chat with other creatives about everything from business, life and everything in between!
I share about impact driven creativity and emotive editing for photographers. Ask me a few questions about business & marketing too- I dare you!
We have a Fire TV at home, and our screensaver is set to play through the photos I take on my phone. I’m constantly plagued by beautiful memories I should do something with. I make mental notes to edit them, but it never happens.
I am currently refining my mobile and desktop workflows to ease creative resistance. I want to have access to all my assets on every device to create and share more of what I love. I even started a coworking group to devote an hour to culling and editing my personal images every week (join us here!)
To import from my phone to Lightroom CC, I have the choice to choose the type of image – photos, videos, screenshots, selfies, or to choose an album to upload. I chose photos and selfies (because those are the ones I’m in!). I also set it to automatically upload new photos taken so I can begin reviewing everything going forward.
The initial upload took a while because I have so many photos. Once the images loaded, I turned on Facial Recognition in Lightroom and hid anyone that isn’t relevant for this task (friends, clients, etc. – right now, I’m just focusing on my family). It’s pretty amazing how it can match a picture of my son 5 years ago to his current-day face!
Now that I have an easy way to edit my photos, I can post them and print them and really enjoy them!
Open Lightroom Mobile, and go to Settings:
Select Photos, Screenshots, and/or Videos to Auto Add:
Click to select photos to add manually:
Choose Camera Roll to select other folders to add:
I chose to add “Selfies” since there are a lot of pictures I love of myself and my kids together in there:
You can either choose individual images or click the …
To Select All:
If you have a lot of photos, it might take a while to upload, but then you’ll be able to edit all of your personal pictures in your everyday workflow!
How do you integrate your personal phone photos into your workflow?
I always love hearing any tips or tricks or things that are working for you!
