Creating a collection from a previous import
Now that we are familiar with how to create collections inside of Lightroom, it’s a good idea to get into a workflow habit of making collections for images that we will be working on in Lightroom CC.
After importing images into the Library, all of the images reside in the Previous Import group in the Catalog panel. Press Command+A/Ctrl+A to select all of the images in the group.
Click the plus sign (+) button at the upper right of the Collections panel and make a collection called Develop Module Practice, making sure the Include Selected Photos option is selected.
The images are automatically added to the Develop Module Practice collection. From here, you can drag to reorganize them to your liking, or choose File Name from the Sort menu in the Toolbar at the bottom of the work area to see them in order by filename.
Now that we have ourselves organized, let’s start tackling the Develop module by working on some of the most popular tools from the top down.
