Over two years ago, I came home from a photo shoot, and I could not wait to go through all of the images! The couple was truly AMAZING, we had a blast together, and on my way home I remember thinking to myself “I cannot wait to start going through these images!” Well, I get home, start importing into Lightroom and then I begin zooming in, zooming out, scrolling through the images, etc. while waiting for Lightroom (LR) to process the images, and…

About three to four hours later, I probably made it through only half of the photos from the shoot.

What at total mood killer!

I came home from a shoot that I was so excited to start culling through and editing, and instead I’m waiting for LR to slowly load my images! I was left feeling defeated, frustrated and discouraged!

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE using LR to edit (it’s all I use 99% of the time!), but the thought of having to use LR to cull all of my images, moving forward, took away all of my enthusiasm and joy. I had only wished there was a faster way to cull, but I had no idea where to look! I knew that there was NO WAY that every photographer was processing their images in LR – there had to be a better system out there!

Once I FINALLY learned about Photomechanic my mind was BLOWN!

Photomechanic was created to process images quickly, and is known to be The Fastest, Most Useful Photo Browser Available [I didn’t make this up – this is their tagline!]!! Woohoo! Hallelujah – I like the way that sounds!

This tool has not only streamlined my post-session workflow, but has allowed me to focus on so many other areas of my business AND enjoy a life that doesn’t include being in front of my computer all the time!!

Friends, there is no reason why you should be spending hours culling!

If you’re a visual learner like me, I’ve created a brief video tutorial, below, all about how I use Photomechanic! If you’ve gotten to this point and you’re still not a believer, you’ll better understand the magic that I’m talking about once you watch the video!!

My 3 Biggest Takeaways for YOU!


  1. was created to process images QUICKLY; Lightroom was NOT.
  2. has INCREASED my post-session workflow.
  3. has given me the FREEDOM to not have to be stuck behind my computer for hours, and start editing my images faster!

Photomechanic even offers a free 30 day trial so there is no reason why you cannot at least try it out!! 😉 I just know it’s going to ROCK your world! There is a also one time payment of $150 for the software, as well! As a small business owner, that can be a pretty penny, BUT it’s priceless in comparison to what this software gives back to you in return!
