Video: Creating saved locations

Next I want to take a look at how we can create what or called saved locations in the map module. Save locations are helpful, because they allow you to save locations for your files. And then add your images to larger more general areas. So here we are in the exercise files folders. And I have some images which I captured in one of my other training courses. These images were all captured on the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a course on portraiture and I want to add these images to a saved location which is the Brooklyn Bridge. To do that, let's navigate to the map module.

In part two of Chris Orwig's Lightroom Essentials, you'll learn how to add important metadata to your images that will help you find and filter your library, process images and video, and export, email, and share photos—all from within the powerful Library module in Adobe Lightroom. First you'll learn how to flag, rate, and rank your photos and use the information to find images that match those criteria. Then tag them with locations and add keywords and identifying information that clearly distinguish the subject and your copyright. Chris also shows you how to make image adjustments with Quick Develop, and play, trim, and edit video. Lastly, find out how to export your photographs to a hard drive, email them to friends and clients, and upload them to sharing sites like Flickr and Facebook.

Topics include:
  • Adding flags, stars, and labels to images
  • Filtering your library by text, metadata, and file type
  • Stacking photos into groups
  • Creating a collection to group images
  • Tagging images with locations
  • Processing images in the Library module
  • Viewing and editing videos
  • Working with the DNG file format
  • Adding copyright metadata to photos
  • Adding keywords
  • Opening images in Photoshop
  • Exporting, emailing, and publishing photos

Creating saved locations

Next I want to take a look at how we can create what or called saved locations in the map module. Save locations are helpful, because they allow you to save locations for your files. And then add your images to larger more general areas. So here we are in the exercise files folders. And I have some images which I captured in one of my other training courses. These images were all captured on the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a course on portraiture and I want to add these images to a saved location which is the Brooklyn Bridge. To do that, let's navigate to the map module.

Here on the map module we first need to do a search for our location, so go ahead and do a search for the Brooklyn Bridge, New York. This will then take us to that area, and we'll zoom in a little bit on that. And let's create our first saved location. To do that, click on the plus icon right here, and let's name this one the Brooklyn Bridge. An then we'll go ahead and, press Create. In doing that, that will then allow us to create this area here. And the radius of this circle is the area which we can save out as our location. This is actually saving a bit of Manhattan and also Brooklyn. I only want it to be the Brooklyn Bridge.

So, position the cursor over that little circle on the outer edge and make this smaller, or position the cursor over the center circle and click and drag this around so that it's just covering up the area that you want to work on. In this case, the area which is the bridge. Now these photographs were captured in different spots on the bridge. The first three, I'll select, click on one, hold down the Shift key and click on another, and then drag and drop to this area here. Now because I dragged and dropped inside of this, or because the circle encompasses those images, they're now part of my saved location.

Next, we'll work on the other photographs. Click on one, hold down the Shift key, then click on another, then drag and drop, and that will then save those to this part of the bridge here where those were captured. And again, they're all part of this save location. Now, if ever you move this save location off to another area, for example, if you're working with this. And you go ahead and click and drag this a little bit off to the side. You can see how these images are no longer part of the save location. To bring that back just relocate that. Just make sure that that circle is covering up those added images there.

And this will then be part of this location. And the advantage of having a save location is that you can then quickly access those images. If you capture more images in this area, well then you can just click on the save location arrow icon, and it will quickly jump to that location here in the map module. All right? Well, let's create one more save location. To do that, we'll go ahead and scroll all the way to the left here, to view some images at the top of our image pile here, so to speak. These two photographs were captured in a town which is called Independence.

Or I should say outside of that town. In a valley which is called Onion Valley, on the eastern Sierras. So here let's go ahead and do a search for Independence, California. This'll then take us to that location. To zoom in, I'm going to double-click. In double-clicking this will allow us to quickly zoom in to this spot here. And as this is zooming in, one of the things that I'm noticing is it actually didn't get that location quite right. The location is a little bit more overe here. So I'm going to go ahead and double click in, until I can get to Independence.

Well, here you can see, we have Independence. In this case, what we're going to do is add these images to Onion Valley. So here, I'll go ahead and zoom into Onion Valley. It's quite a name for a beautiful location, or quite a funny name, I should say. It's an amazing spot. This was a snow camping trip. Here I want to create a new location so I'll click on the plus icon and name this one Onion Valley. Next click Create. And again, when you're working with these it doesn't really matter where you're creating these. Again I'm just choosing some for demo purposes.

So obviously select or search for locations which are relevant to your photograph. Next, this image was captured right about here. So I'll go ahead and drag and drop that one to that spot. And this photograph was captured a little bit higher up here in the Sierras, right about here. Well now I have these two images which are part of this saved location. So again, the great thing about this is we can then navigate to these saved locations. If we want to go back to New York. We'll just click on this little arrow icon. And what that will do is take us back to this saved location.

So we can then find those images view and access those, or do whatever we need to do. We could also add other images to these saved locations, and by doing this you can recall or remember where you captured certain files. And it also gives you just yet another unique way to manage or group or organize your images together.
