Unlimited Culling & Editing
for $499 p/year
To my knowledge, this is the only workflow that will allow you to perform the following actions all in one process, while you sleep.
We all love AI culling and editing and the life-changing impact it has made on our editing time. With that massive time save, we are improving our businesses, and becoming better parents, partners and friends.
I am someone who is very particular about where I spend my time, and I want to make sure I’m not doing anything that could be either automated or outsourced.
I’ve been dreaming about a product that can cull and edit on Lightroom Import. I expect this is on the horizon, but until we get there, I decided to make my own automation which anyone can do with the following steps.
This is the automation software that will power the workflow. You can download it from here: https://www.keyboardmaestro.com/
Install it and grant the permissions necessary.
You’ll need a subscription to Adobe Lightroom Classic, although I can’t see why this workflow wouldn’t also work with Capture One.
You’ll need the Culling and Editing subscription. Check out the Founder's Deal below if you don't already have it.
Is there a better Return on Investment out there?
Consider this: The Founder's Deal, while it's available, will give you the average cull and edit cost per wedding, regardless of how many photos you choose to cull and edit:
20 weddings a year = $25p/wedding
40 weddings a year = $12.5p/wedding
60 weddings a year = $8p/wedding
80 weddings a year = $6p/wedding
100 weddings a year = $5p/wedding
Like, seriously 🤯. If you value your time and money, you owe it to yourself to jump on it.
Lifetime rate of just $499 per year
You’ll need to build your workflow yourself as it records your screen. It’s not something I can share with you as our screen sizes and resolutions will be different.
You’ll have to start by downloading and installing Keyboard Maestro
After installing it, you’ll need to grant the necessary permissions.

Go through your normal process of how you would leave your computer ingesting photos off your memory card into Aftershoot and begin building your automation from the ‘Start Culling’ phase which kicks in once Aftershoot has finished the ingest. You will be in bed when this happens so you’re looking for a trigger, something that changes on the screen when it’s ready to start culling. I explain the different triggers I use in this video:
I used a combination of the following triggers to replicate my Aftershoot and Lightroom Workflow:
