I don’t know about you guys but I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with editing. I love watching my images come to life, but I hate how time consuming it can be. I remember when I first started my business it would take me over 4 HOURS to edit ONE senior session…. 4 hours!!!!!!!
For me, it wasn’t necessarily the editing that took me so long, but it was the culling. I remember having to wait for all my images to load onto my computer, then opening up Lightroom and spending HOURS going through and choosing my images. I remember going through each image like this; *click* “loading…” “Do I like this one better than the last?” *click* “loading…” “Ugh…” *click* “okay I like this one” *flag*. And that was comparing only 2 images!!!!! No wonder it took me so long! If you shoot anything like I do, you’ll have 15 images of the same pose and it will take you FOREVER to go through them all!
Now let me let you in on a little secret: Lightroom is NOT meant for culling! Lightroom is awesome for batch editing and getting it done quickly. So you may be asking, “Well then what am I supposed to use?” The answer is Photo Mechanic!!!!!!!!! This is the program that changed the game entirely and cut my editing time in half!!!! It now takes me about an hour and a half to 2 hours to edit a full engagement or senior session!
Let me explain, this is how Photo Mechanic works:
It’s THAT easy! This program has completely changed the game for me! I love it for so many reasons, I don’t know what I’d do without it! If you are still culling manually in Lightroom, stop what you are doing and GET THIS PROGRAM! I promise you, you will not regret it!

That’s a cool software! Do you use expo disc when you shoot? Just wondering…
