Smart Albums, Saved Filters?

How is everyone organizing their photos in Lightroom CC? For me it seems the albums functionality is almost worthless. Searching seems fine but does anyone have a method they use to better curate their photos? I know Classic does this well of course but it seems like we need some middle ground between the app that does everything for organization and the other app that does basically nothing.

 

Thanks

You might like to add your vote to this feature request: https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-ecosystem-cloud-based-ideas/lightroom-ecosystem-please-add-smart-folders/idi-p/12240055 Personally, I use albums for the groupings I need to view most frequently, and search for the rest, but the request certainly gets my vote.

ah, thanks so much Victoria. I've added my vote. I was looking for product feedback on the Adobe site. Is that the closet thing they have?

A mix of keywords, titles and other meta-data plus albums is my go-forward structure.

I have defined a whole workflow process, mostly working around the lack of features to actually manage images that are missing from Lr coud ecosystem.

The smart folders @Victoria Bampton LR Queen  linked too is a great solution to allow end users to build descent management tools for images..

Thanks Timothy

 

I need to use keywords more. I strayed from them after GPS came along, as well as iPhoto/Aperture/Photos using face recognition, but keywords are forever and I like the idea of that.
