Re: How do you delete your unneeded photos or do you hoard them like me?

Okay, it sounds like I'm not alone then!  As I seem to have the same issue as you.  And yes, the biggest problem for me is finding the time.  For some this may be easy but I'm not good at throwing things away.  So in the end if I take 300 pictures, I usually only delete a few obvious bad ones, and only work on a few obvious great ones.  Then the rest just sit there in my many LR catalogs.

After each import as I'm quickly looking through the photos I've taken, the majority are photos that aren't bad (so I won't delete them), but also aren't great and I know I'll never do anything with them.  I wish there was an "archive" flag in Lightroom where they will easily convert to jpg or something.  Then again, space isn't the issue, but it would be nice to tidy up somehow...
