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.
In the previous movie we selected a few photographs from this folder and then we exported those pictures so that we could convert these high resolution raw files into lower resolution JPEG files. Well, here in this movie, I want to take a look at how we can take advantage of all of those export settings which we've used previously. Because let's say for example that we've decided that we also want to export another photograph as well with those same exact settings. Well, we can do that by simply selecting the photograph then you can navigate to the File pull down menu and here rather than selecting Export, we'll choose Export with Previous. In doing that it will apply the previous export settings and, in this case, it's going to apply those settings, even the naming convention. Here, it's telling me that this particular file already exists. What should we do? Well, ask it to use a unique name and what that will do is it will create a unique name and still save this image to that particular folder.
Well now here you can see the folder of images. And we can see that this image should really be named Steven-6. So I'll go ahead and click into the file name here. And I'll just manually rename that to Steven-6. And that will then show up at the bottom of this stack. And in this way what you can do is you can take advantage of those settings, which you've previously dialed in so that you can then export other photographs using those settings as you can see here. Simply by navigating to that command, which is File and then Export with Previous.
