Not every photo is perfect. To avoid cluttering up your catalog with unusable images, it is possible to remove them from the database. However, you should consider keeping copies of these photos on your computer’s hard disk, just in case you find another use for them down the road.
Remove an Image from the Catalog
- From the Grid or Filmstrip, select the image thumbnail(s) for the photo(s) you want to remove from the catalog.
- Choose Photo, Remove Photo from Catalog. Note that this command is not available via the contextual menu.
Lightroom removes the image(s) from the catalog; however, the original file still remains on your computer’s hard disk.
