I am brand new to Lightroom and as I am starting my transition from iPhoto over to Lightroom I am noticing a few things I miss. Foremost I miss the "Events" view in iPhoto and Aperture that organized photo imports graphically (and with a key photo as an icon) based on the event the photos were from, rather than the date. Is there any functionality in Lightroom for something like this? How are people handling this? I know there are tons of options out there. It seems that when I import into my catalogue I see on the left, my hard drive, under that is a year (2011) and under that are dates of photos that were imported. If I click the date, I get those photos into a grid view. What I think I would like is a list of events under the hard drive (like "Zoo, Paris Trip, Jill's Birthday Party, Machu Picchu, etc), possibly with dates under that? I thought I could achieve that with "folders", but when I import to a subfolder, it just makes another level deep on the directory structure on disk, but it doesn't show up in the interface. Instead it seperated dates under a different year, making a huge mess. I must be missing something easy. Events seem like a nice way to browse through photos by memory. I guess I could use collections for this, but I don't think they are hierarchical. Anyone have good ways to work in the familiar iPhoto workflow? And what about getting photos into an iPhone or iPad? Are people exporting photos and importing them into iPhoto to get them on your phone? Seems pretty inconvenient in a lightroom workflow. Thanks for any help!
