While reviewing my previous New Year's blog posts, I came across this entry from 2015. In it I wrote about reviewing the year's pictures for your best photos and looking through the prior year for rejects.

Even though the article describes using Lightroom Classic to perform these tasks, you can accomplish them using a variety of other photo organizing software. For example, Photoshop Elements Organizer lets you create Albums (instead of Lightroom Classic Collections) of favorites and you can use a single star to flag rejects for possible deletion.

The end of a year (and a decade!) is a time for reflection, review and setting goals for the future. All those things are good for our photography, too!

P.S. If you'd like to learn how to use Photoshop Elements to organize and edit your pictures, check out my Photoshop Elements Workflow class beginning January 20, 2020, at the Lifelong Learning Center in Missoula, Montana.
