Applying Color Labels

With color labels, you have the freedom to associate whatever interpretations you like to each color. For example, you may assign a red color label to mean “reject” or a green label to mean “good to print.” You can save these interpretations in a Color Label Set. Note that all applied color labels are specific to the color label set that is currently chosen. If you use Lightroom with Bridge, be sure to assign the same interpretations to the colors in both applications. Doing so ensures that there will be no color label metadata conflicts.

Categorize Images with Color Labels

  1. Choose Color Label Set from the Metadata menu and select one of the three default sets: Bridge Default, Lightroom Default, or Review Status.

  2. Select any image thumbnail (or multiple image thumbnails) from the Grid or Filmstrip.

  3. Choose Photo, Set Color Label and then select a color from the fly-out submenu. You can also Control+click (Mac) or right-click and select one from the contextual menu.
