Lightroom 2 New Features

with Chris Orwig

Video: Welcome

Welcome. My name's Chris Orwig. I'm a pro photographer and I'm on the faculty of the Brooks Institute of Photography. And you know us photographers we have interesting relationships with our tools, whether cameras are software, and one of reasons we have this interesting relationship is that tools are really technical and technical things can bog you down. Yet if you learn how to use these tools well, it can ignite, it can inspire, it can enliven, it can shape who you are, what you see and what you create. Well, my hope with this training is this. I hope that by showing you some of that important new features inside of Lightroom 2.0 that this will help you expand who you are and what you create and ultimately will help you get more out of Lightroom so that you can be a better photographer. Well we have a lot of ground to cover so without further delay, let's begin.
