I have been thinking about having a small extra catalog for this years pics , and ,after editing, syncing the changes back to the main big catalog on a weekly basis.
not quite sure what the best strategy for that would be ?
any tips appreciated
cheers from NZ
It depends on what you want to achieve with the subcatalogs, but maybe a smart collection is all you need? One that has all the current year's picture in it? If the idea of the separate catalog was to keep track of what was processed/keyworded etc. you could do that with a smart collection based on year and color labeling as selection criteria. The smart collection could then contain all 2013 pictures with the (e.g.) red label. Once you're done with a picture, remove the color label and it's gone from the smart collection.
