I have an upcoming photo gig and need to know if there is a way to track the number of prints I complete on that specific job. I will use 1 gallery/folder for this shoot. I just want to be able to say at the end of the job I printed X amount of photos so I am billing the client properly. Can LR provide that information so we do not have to track the prints in our head.
If you use a Collection (I presume you mean this by 'Gallery') then it may be of benefit to create a Collection SET, and have sub-folder collections within the set.
When you order say 50- 5x7inch prints from 50 selected images- immediately create a Collection called 5x7 under the SET and check the box to include the selected images.
When you order 20-8x10inch prints from 20 selected images- immediately create a collection called 8x10 and ditto above.
Your collections panel should show something like- The number of ordered prints show as the images in each collection.
