"Organizing Order of Images for Slideshow in LR4"



Hi all,

I have imported the images I want into a library, then added key words to each photo. The order of the images is as they were arranged prior to import without any ID except file number. Is there an easy way to reorganize the flow of images for a slideshow by a key word sort so that all the New York images, all Chicago images, etc. are reorganized together? Sorting seems to include lots of options but none that include an added key word.

Thanks for any help here.

Hi Barbara,

To do any organising into a desired order the images will need to be placed into a collection first. Once in a collection you can drag and drop individual, or selected groups, of images into any order you want them. However I have not tried sorting within a collection to know if that works or whether there is a sort by keyword option.

If you want captions to appear in your slideshow you will have to put the text you want into the Caption field of the metadata. Then start your slideshow preparation with Lightroom's "Exif Metadata" template in the Slideshow module. You will need to then modify and/or delete some of the Exif fields that come with this template, but the template is a good starting point.
