One excellent way to organize your catalog images is to categorize them by rating. Lightroom enables you to apply ratings from zero to five stars. After you apply them, you can then use the Filter bar or Filmstrip filter controls to search for specific catalog images based on their ratings. Ratings are stored in an image’s metadata and are accessible in other applications, such as Adobe Bridge.
Apply 0-5 star ratings to your catalog images
- Select any image thumbnail (or multiple image thumbnails) from the Grid or Filmstrip.
- To apply a rating to the selected photo(s), choose Photo > Set Rating and then select a star rating from the flyout submenu. You can also Control+click (Mac) or right+click (Win) and choose one
from the contextual menu. If you’ve chosen to display them, you can also apply a rating by clicking one of the star icons
in the Toolbar.
If the Show Grid Extras view option is enabled, Lightroom displays the rating in the grid cell.
