    Lightroom is so frustrating

      As for developing photos, its amazing.

       

      My rage stems from its organization. Catalogues, Collections, Quick Collections, Smart Collections etc

      My god. I have my photos in files.

      It should be so simple, but its not.

       

      what is a collection

      what is a catalogue

      what does it matter???

       

      You have Files.

      You have Folders.

      Why cant I put my files in a folder?

       

      Take trying to sync a photo from your computer to your phone.

      I have it installed and updated on both.

      Why cant I just click on a file and sync it?

      Why do I need to create a collection inside of a catalogue from inside of a smart collection?

       

      Okay lets try this again. I have a synced catalogue, I found it! I know I found it because its got a little tiny greyed out squiggly next to it that is barely visible after navigating through tons of smart collections and quick collections.

      Open Catalogue.

      Nothing there, REMOVED.

      Maybe I can import the photos on my desktop into my synced catalogue.

      They are greyed out, wont let me. I guess I've already imported them, so I cant JUST PLACE THEM, I need to find them now and assign them to a collection, a synced collection inside this catalogue.

       

      This program is littered with functions that are barely used, and the most important ones are hidden somewhere in a transparent box.

      ...If you can figure out how to navigate its functionality.

      I OPENED THE WRONG CATALOGUE.

      WHY OH WHY CANT I JUST IMPORT THE ******* FILE AND PUT IT ON MY [REMOVED] PHONE.

       

      Nope, gotta cruise adobes forums and read for hours just to understand simple functionality.

      Im so glad Im a CC user, I cant imagine paying full price for this counter intuitive headache.
