A while back I was following this method for Lightroom http://ericscouten.com/blog/2012/03/05/lightroom-technique-how-i-organize-my-catalog-and-why-2012-edition
It does advocate creating folders on the disk file system and I spent a fair amount of time doing that. Also this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NsE457Iq-c is using folders on disk.
However, a lot since, I have just been importing my images and then just applying metadata and organising into collections, because it is faster. What is the need for the folders on disk?
I want to be able to archive those photos that aren't for public display and maybe these should be physically moved out into another folder (and maybe out of the catalogue?)
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
