1. delete bad photos when you see them, which should happen before you import them for editing.
2. Photos to be rated and edited (= the recently taken photos) are imported to a "Studio" folder on my Laptop. The editing software uses this folder as base folder.
3. Edited photos are exported to a "Collection" folder (a professional may call it "Portfolio"), so it contains all the photos which I liked and which I don't feel uncomfortable to present to others.
4. The source folder of the originals is moved from the "Studio" folder to an "Archive" folder. The Archive folder is not on the Laptop to save space (but backed up properly, because shots can be edited again, but not taken again).
