I have been using LR for several years and have managed to make a mess of images and dupes scattered all over LR. How can I get them all in one place to eliminate the dupes and reduce all the clutter? Is there any app on the market to save disorganized people like me?
Don't look too far. I made several attempts to re-organize things with LR3,4,5 but was not too successful. Too many photos to deal with. I have just migrated to Lighroom CC and I think you have more tools to re-organize with CC. When you upload your photos, Lighroom CC does away with your previous folder arrangements. I was scared about this at first. But what you get is a clean setup withyour photos displayed by the year the photos were taken with all the duplicates removed. You also can view the photos by people. A bit of work is required to use these two tools to create new albums and folders. Just a suggestion.
