John Beardsworth is a member of the core Adobe Lightroom beta testing team, so as you might expect, he should know a thing or two about Lightroom and in particular how to organise photos in a catalog, which is one of his main specialities (apart from being a professional photographer too). So I was interested in the following article where John expresses his views on the usefulness of multiple catalogs.
Just because you can, it doesn’t mean you should : one or many Lightroom catalogues
Lightroom 1.1 made it easier to create and work with more than one catalogue, and it’s making some people think that’s how they should work. I’m not talking about when you’re travelling or need to move pictures between computers, but as a routine way of working. Apart from seeing it in blog posts and forum threads, I’ve been asked about it on a couple of occasions recently, and was also forwarded a discussion where one photographer quoted from my book:

Earlier this year on Lightroom-news we brought you news of how to use GPS metadata in Lightroom to link to Google Maps and Google Earth. Ian Lyons of Computer-Darkroom mentioned how on a trip to Antarctica he used the LoadMyTracks and GPSPhotoLinker software to take the GPX data from his GPS device and synchronize this with the capture files he had imported to Lightroom. I was going to post a follow up story myself showing how this could be done using the above software programs. But meanwhile, Eric Scouten of the Lightroom team has posted a tutorial showing how to accomplish the same thing, but more simply by using the HoudahGeo software
I’m kind of a metadata addict. And a map junkie. So it should be no surprise that I’ve been waiting for a long time for a program \to help me mark up my photos with the exact location of capture. I was very happy to learn this spring of a new application called HoudahGeo. Most of the geocoding apps I’ve seen before only write to JPEG files. HoudahGeo actually works directly on PSD and DNG files, among others, meaning I can actually mark up my master files instead of a derivative.
