    Copying Collection Templates


    Does anyone know how to copy empty collection sets from one LR file to another.

    I shoot weddings and I categorise my weddings according to event. i.e Bride Prep, Groom Prep, Ceremony etc.. on top of this I rate the images, so I have another Collection Set, and on top of this my clients get the rated images in order of events, so I have a Collection Set - Wedding Final.

    So I have 2 Collection sets that are smart collections, and 1 which I drag to.

    I create all these each time I do a wedding, but it would be nice to just copy and paste them or have them there each time I start a new wedding catalogue.

    Thanks in advance.

    Create a catalog with your Collection Sets and Smart Collections, but no pictures. That will be your "template catalog". For each wedding, rather than creating a new catalog, copy the template catalog.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I was hoping that maybe, we can have a "template" that would be used that I can open with i.e. Word and Excel like.

    This is a great work around. thanks.

    Cheers
