Over time, your photo library will grow. One of the key benefits of a Luminar library is finding just the images you want to work with, view, or share. In this way, you should rate your images so you can find your favorites easily in the future.
There are three types of ratings you can apply to an image. Luminar lets you quickly rate your photos with a 5-star system. You can also flag your images as favorites or rejects. Additionally, color labels can be applied.
Flags are the quickest way to rate and sort images. There are three types of Flags that you can apply to an image:
- Flagged. Flagged images are considered your Favorites. These are images you may want to work on or star rate later.
- Rejected. These are images that you know you know you will not want to use. This could be based on focus issues, closed eyes, or other problems that can’t be fixed in editing.
- Unmarked. Images that are neither Flagged or Rejected remain unmarked. You can filter out everything but unmarked images to determine if you want to flag or reject them. Images that have been flagged or Rejected can have their rating removed using the Unmarked command.
Images can be rated on a numerical scale of 0 to 5 stars, with 5 stars being the best. Once rated you can filter your photos by their star rating, for example showing images with 3 stars or more.
Color labels can be applied to an image. The colors are fixed at red, yellow, green, blue, and purple. People use color labeling for a variety of reasons. Some examples include: needs editing, finished, travel images, family photos, and so on. You can filter by the color label and show only images labeled with a single color.
