Lightroom Tips – How to quickly remove photograph(s) from specific collections

While it might be obvious to some (not me), removing a photograph from a collection is a simple but not straightforward task. Lightroom can only remove a photograph from a collection only if you’re viewing the specific collection. For example, you are unable to remove a photograph from a collection in the folders view. Same goes if you’re in a different collection from the one you would like to remove from (and there are many other scenarios)…

The easiest & fastest way I found to remove photographs from a specific collection is:

  • Goto library module
  • Click on the specific Collection
  • Select the specific photograph(s)
  • Do one of the following:
    • Right Click -> “Remove from Collection”
    • Photo Menu -> “Remove from Collection”
    • Mark photograph -> Press BACKSPACE
