As I have a few days off and the weather didn't inspire me much the last few days, I went about to reorganize my Lightroom catalog. From my Adobe Bridge days I had a lot of folders and subfolders and I converted them into a few main folders and tagging the pictures with keywords to compensate for the loss of information by moving them into one main folder. That took me several days and I don't know if I'll be completely happy with it: handling large amounts of files in one folder makes LR sluggish on my laptop (which is about the most powerful HP laptop I could find and it cost me a lot of money). I'm thinking of replacing one of the hard drives by an SSD containing the operating system, the caches and the catalog. And I may want to use another cataloging program just to have an alternative source when LR destroys something or I make a user error (happened during the job, cost me 4 hours to repair the damage). A few minutes ago I considered the job done and look what happened: exactly 30,000 pictures!
