√ GET STARTED RIGHT
It really matters to get it right the first time with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. There are all sorts of ways to do it wrong and only a few ways to do it right. I’ll show you how to avoid the first option.
√ UNDERSTAND METADATA
Metadata is the information that is stamped by your camera onto every single photograph you take. And it’s also added by you to help you find the photos you need. You should understand how to do it best, so you never lose a photo!
They are another form of metadata that you alone add to your photographs. To understand keywords is to understand how to manage your library. Remember, your computer needs text to find graphic files and if you intelligently keyword your photos it will also help search engines find photos uploaded to your website.
√ ENHANCE YOUR PHOTOS
Photoshop used to be the only way to get the very best out of your photos. No longer. Today, pros use Photoshop for about 10 per cent of their photos but for the rest they mostly use Lightroom because it’s fast and connected to your photo collection. Saves time. Saves money. For pros and for you.
√ PUBLISH PHOTOS
Lightroom is a very powerful digital media hub. You can publish to just about everything, including virtually all the social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, LinkedIn and many, many more. You can also publish to websites, presentation programs and desktop publishing applications.
√ MANAGE VIDEOS
Yes, it’s true, Lightroom can help you to manage your videos. It can also serve as a very primitive video editor, but you’re best to use a dedicated video application if you are into videos. Still, it’s great to know that it will work for organizing videos as well as photos.
