Narrow Down What I’m Seeing?  Then, what I do is look for the weakest photo in the bunch (believe me, it’s easier to find the one you like the least than it is to find the one you like the most).  That’s how I use Survey view to narrow things down to the best shots from a shoot, especially handy when you have a set of photos or poses that are very similar. Add More Photos to a Collection?  Just release the mouse button to drop that photo into that collection Find Just Photos of People?  It takes a little time doing this the first time (going through all your faces and tagging who is who), but then you can search for anyone by name (in the Library Filter bar’s Text search field— press the \ [backslash] key, if you don’t see it) or use the People tab in the Keyword List panel to display a list of people by name (just click on their name to see only that person).

Organize Similar Collections?  Of course, to just see images from one city, simply click on its collection. Group Similar Photos Together (Stacking)? To stack a bunch of similar photos under one single thumbnail (helpful if you have multiple bracketed exposures for HDR, or for organizing the frames you want to merge together for a pano), in the Library module, select the images you want to stack (here, I’ve selected nine bracketed images of the same exact scene), then Right-click on any of those selected thumbnails and, from the menu that appears, under Stacking, choose Group into Stack, as shown above.

Once it’s imported, you can delete the catalog you copied onto your new drive, but do not delete the actual images, because…well…those are the real actual images. Create a Smart Collection?  By the way, you can change the criteria for your smart collection anytime by just double-clicking directly on it in the Collections panel (you’ll know it’s a smart collection because it will have a small gear icon before its name). Name My Color Labels?  This brings up the dialog you see above, where you can just type in the names you want, and even save them as a preset if you like by going under the Preset pop-up menu up top and choosing Save Current Settings as New Preset.
