How to use FilterLR plugin to cull your photos?

To use the plugin, make sure you are in the library mode.

  • Import the images that you would like to cull inside the Lightroom catalogue.
  • After importing, go to File > Plug-in extras, and select “Cull with FilterLR”.

(If you are running FilterLR for the first time, you will get the signup pop-up. Fill in your details to continue.)

  • After signing up, you can see the culling process starting. Culling 1000 photos take around 5-10 minutes.

  • While the culling is in progress, you can either start culling manually in lightroom (The AI won’t override your decision) or start editing photos in the develop module parallelly.
  • After the culling process is finished, FilterLR will notify you and show you the number of photos the plugin has accepted, rejected, and untagged.

In the library, the plugin will mark and cull your photos according to the following pattern:
