Once you’ve finished editing the Lightroom catalog, and you’ve scrolled through to double check everything there’s just a few steps to wrap up each assignment:

Culling & Edit Totals: Once you've completed your culling and editing in Lightroom please add a comment to note your totals for each task in Project Bubble.

  • Culling Tasks: Comment the number of rejected images for each photographer. Please only comment with a numerical entry. If you have other notes please make a new comment. Please always remember to click the NOTE button when making a new comment on any tasks or projects.
  • Edit Task: Comment the total number of edited images in the catalog. Please include any proofs provided in the catalog.


Dropbox your completed catalog file: Close Lightroom and then we only need your Lightroom Catalog (.lrcat) file in return, not zipped. We’ve set up a shared Dropbox folder for you to load your catalog files. You don’t need to send a share request or link, we're automatically notified once the file has synced to the dropbox folder. Please do not rename the catalog file at any time.

Check off your tasks: Once you've entered in your culling and edit totals, and you've synced your Lightroom Catalog you can check off your assigned tasks in Project Bubble, using the check mark button on the right side of the screen for each corresponding task.

Invoicing: Next step is to add the assignment to your invoice. We recommend using Invoicely if you don’t already have a system in place. They have a free service to create and track invoices. Please send 1 invoice per month for any assignments during that periods. All invoices are due by the 21st of each month. All payments are by direct deposit for each months invoice. Deposits are generally between the 1st and 4th of each following month. You can find the pay amount noted for each assignment in the project comments.
