In Photoshop Lightroom 3 New Features, photographer and author Chris Orwig explores the enhancements that Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 brings to each phase of the photographic workflow—from importing and editing, to exporting and publishing. This course details Lightroom 3's new importing and asset-management features and its significant improvements in the Develop module, including enhanced sharpening and noise reduction. Chris also shows how Lightroom 3 broadens output options, and shares workflow tips and advice for upgrading Lightroom 2 catalogs and working with images processed in earlier Lightroom versions. Exercise files are included with the course.
Here I want to briefly talk about a couple of new options that we'll discover in the Metadata panel inside of Lightroom 3. Well, for starters, go ahead and navigate to your Library module. Next, let's click on the Metadata panel to expand this. Now, once we do that, we can see all of our different fields here. Now, where the new options come in have to do with this pulldown menu. We've seen this pulldown menu before, but here we have two different brand-new options. One is we can now view the EXIF and the IPTC information.
If we click on this option, we'll then be able to scroll through, again, both the EXIF and the IPTC info. Another new option has to do with IPTC Extension and what these fields are targeted towards are those who do news or stock type of photography. So here if we click on this option, we'll see a number of different fields. These fields allow us to add information about description, artwork, the model, and we also have some admin options as well. So here you can see, a couple of new options that you'll discover inside of your Metadata panel, the EXIF and IPTC option and IPTC Extension.
