After I do the first culling, where I remove unusable pictures (unrecoverable bad exposure, lack of focus, etc) I like to use survey mode to choose the best pictures and avoid pictures that are too similar.
The only problem I have with survey mode so far is that I have to manually go down in the film strip and select which pictures I would like to survey. When culling 3 or 4 thousand pictures getting out of the keyboard and reaching for the mouse to to that selection, (Shift + Click) or even do that selection using the arrows can get really tiresome.
Is there a way to to automatic surveys in batch? Like, I set something like 10 pictures to survey, and after that Lightroom automagically selects the next 10 pictures for me to survey and so on?
