Using Photo Mechanic and a Wacom Tablet
I was doing a shoot in Miami.. and shot a lot of images.  A lot.  More than I really wanted to cull on a one by one basis.  I figured this was a great time to go back to #PhotoMechanic  and use that because of the speed.  Combine that with a #Wacom  tablet, and you can really make this culling #photography  process work for you.  Figured ppl would dig the tutorial on it.

I love Photo Mechanic for sorting through tons of photos. You can't beat the speed with anything else
+RC Concepcion  great tutorial... I would like to setup these custom settings in LR. Do you know if LR would move with the same speed will going thru images in LR?
+Don Weaver -  It doesn't seem to retain the same crisp detail when scanning through images as fast as Photo Mechanic (at least w/ my hardware and LR3).  You can under the Photo menu set it to Auto Advance the same, and do all the other custom settings with a tablet and LR's controls (P for pick, X for reject and numbers to flag).

I also often set LR to filter Flagged and Unflagged so Rejects auto disappear. I find this helps me scrutinize and pare down better when the keepers are against themselves and not the obvious rejects still.
Hands down Photo Mechanic is the fastest program to sort through tons of photos. Worth the investment.
