You've combined the pick/reject model with the star rating model -- which is fine -- however that's not necessarily representative of everyone's use. Personally, in my initial sort I almost never use pick but always use reject. Anything I don't want to keep is rejected (and deleted) so the remaining ones are, arguably, all picks. Marking all photos as pick ...

Yes, Lightroom has a batch crop. You first of all apply a crop to the first image. Then in the library grid view, you right-click on the first image, and under the header "Develop Settings" you chose "copy settings". You then select the option "Crop" and deselect all the other options (unless you also want to copy those to the batch). You then click on ...

If all your images are of the same size and you want to crop it to the same dimensions, you can use ImageMagick to get the job done. Take a look at the Crop details so as not be surprised by its behaviour :-)

For your first question, please refer to my answer to this post. It describes in Detail how you can customize the Folder Structure Lightroom creates on import. To your second question: You need to manually select the pictures you want to edit, and then go to the Menu "Metadata > Edit Capture time"

Separated Flag and Rating tools have some benefits: Rating value can be written into image metadata while Flag is stored in your database (catalog) only. You can Pick the photos with 3 or 4 stars, but you might still need to distinquish images that you picked. One of the Daminion's customers marks images that were rejected by his clients but these images ...

User order is quite ephemeral and I recommend you to avoid using it. One day something happens (disk fails, lightroom update, copy folder, etc.) and you loose your precious custom sorting. Instead, after you sort the photos as you do today you should: Select the photos you just finished ordering; Batch rename the photos (by pressing F2 or going to Edit > ...

Lightroom can't do any background deletion (so that this area gets transparent). If pure white is sufficient, you have the following ways to achieve this: Push up the whites on the whole image Use an adjustment-brush and push up the higlights / exposure until it gets white enough Use the spot removal tool and copy some white from another area Each of ...

Certainly shooting RAW + JPEG does take more time to transfer since it is more data, but it shouldn't be that much more. Most likely your combined file size is only around 20 to 30MB and should take almost no time over USB 2.0. Interestingly however, the estimated transfer time for USB 1.1 would be around 22 seconds. I would probably try doing some ...

I use Reject for quick selection of blurred/underexposed/etc. pictures - and delete those. I use stars just to select good pictures. Usually I use only 4 stars for good pictures, then I just filter by 4 stars, and review those (compared to others) and give 5 stars for the really good ones, and sometimes change the 4 stars to 3 if it is not as good as some ...

Personally, I use pick for images I plan to do further touch up on. They may be any rating. Flags are separate from rating and artificially limiting them serves no purpose. Those who want to use them in concert can with minimal extra effort this way, but if it followed your suggested approach, then it would be impossible for many people to operate the way ...

The idea is that you don't want to be applying compression to the image that will result in reduced quality. Tiff is a lossless image format and so it will preserve the raster data perfectly fine. I'm unsure about ProPhoto RGB as I've never worked with it. The one thing that is worth noting is that you will need to make sure your adjustments to your RAW ...

You can use IrfanView (freeware) for batch cropping. First, get the position and dimensions for the part you want cropped. The easiest way to do this is just open the photo in IrfanView, and drag with the mouse to draw a box on your photo. The title bar will display the size and position of the selected area. Then go to file menu, and "Batch ...

As I began to use Lightroom for much of my photographic work, I began to hate the LR catalogs. So here's a hybrid workflow that I think you may find better for large archives and libraries. Simply make a new catalog for each event. Since I shoot many hundreds of images at an event, creating one large LR catalog slows down my whole workflow. Making one ...

To avoid a re-import. Once the metadata for the capture time is correct you should be able to go into your library module and sort by date... Getting your pictures in the right folder is simple as selecting the photos from one year and dropping them into the correct year in your folder hierarchy.
