I’m really happy that so many people feel that what I address in 1 Hour 1000 Pics is as essential as I feel it is: learning to make confident and good decisions about the vast amount of pictures in your library.
If you want to bring your library of uncategorized images on board, this one is for you.
In Chapter 11 (Importing Pictures) I explain how you put photos of individual events into separate collections as a starting point for boiling them down. The one thing that would make that much much easier was if you had a way to identify the pictures that are not in a collection yet.
Unfortunately Lightroom doesn’t have an easy way to do that, but here is a workaround that works well:
1. Create a Smart Collection, I named mine “Not in a collection”
2. Set up the filter rule like this:
Now whenever you open that collection, it will show you all the pictures that are not in a collection just yet, making it that much easier to know which files still need work and which ones don’t.
Chris Marquardt's new eBook 1 Hour 1000 Pics - Supercharge your Lightroom Workflow
shows you a way to dramatically speed up your Lightroom workflow while making confident decisions about your pictures. It can be found at www.1hour1000pics.com
It’s finally here! 6.5 hours (!) of DRM-free HD 720p video that works on almost any device and that covers almost everything that’s there to know about Lightroom. Comes with demo files, so you can try everything that you see in the video with the same files Chris uses.
What’s best: watch over half an hour of free previews – and you choose the price!
Well, it’s a one-time event for now, but it should be a ton of fun!
As Ibarionex Perello put it:
The return of the OG podcasters. Jeff Curto (The History of Photography & Camera Position), Chris Marquardt (Tips from the Top Floor), Martin Bailey (Martin Bailey Photography Podcast) and Ibarionex Perello (The Candid Frame) resurrect the Focus Ring for what could be a one-time only event.
Each has been producing their podcasts for over 7 years and were once affiliated together through the Photocast Network.
In this gathering, we have the opportunity to play catch up and discuss photography, life, podcasting and why the hell we all look so much older.
It’s an international event representing the USA, Japan and Germany, hence the early start time.
If you can come and join the fun.
The timing was chosen to make sure we get the US, Europe and Japan at the table. If you can’t make it live, the event will be available on YouTube later.

For a while, you have been able to downloaded TFTTF episodes via BitTorrent – and no, using BitTorrent is *not* illegal, I repeat, *not* illegal, unless you use it to download illegal content. And trust me: TFTTF is *very* legal indeed
Here’s the next bit of future-proofing: TFTTF has just been upgraded to receive BitCoin donations!
Producing a free offering like this podcast takes time, and running and maintaining the infrastructure costs real money that I have to earn. If you are already helping out with a regular or one-time donation, I thank you with all my heart!
If you want to financially help, there is a box in the sidebar to do just that.
Now, in addition to the existing PayPal donation system, you can now give using BitCoin. The BitCoin address for the donations is
I appreciate any amount donation. To make things simpler, if you have a BitCoin client installed on your system, the donations box in the sidebar has a button for that.
If you never heard of BitCoin, it’s a digital currency, you can find out more at bitcoin.org
PS: of course, there are other non-financial ways to support the show!
