I am new to lightroom (Mac) and had been trying to migrate from using acdsee pro inside of a virtual windows machine. The workflow I am tying to achieve used to involve opening two acdsee browser/manage windows(vertically tiled). One showing my family events folder collection and one showing my download folder (with many imported on folders). I would create a new event folder or navigate into one, switch window, select bunch of photos and drag and drop into the other window, navigate up, and repeat the process until of my imported photo are organized.
My problem doubt this with lightroom is that I have too many folders in my events collection and to scroll up and down in he folder panel to find or to create events is just a nightmare since I can't keep my selection of imported photos easily while navigating.
Am I doing this wrong and there is a better solution? My main issue really the quantity of photo since I have been accumulating imported photo but not really organizing anything for quite sometime (three kids will leave you with little time for managing their photos).
Thanks for your help. Regards.
