Video: Importing via drag/drop

Photoshop Lightroom is a powerful new photographic workflow application designed to help photographers expand their creative potential. Photoshop Lightroom Essential Training is all about using this revolutionary new tool to its full potential. One of the main challenges of photography is dealing with the sheer volume of images that result from each shoot. In Photoshop Lightroom Essential Training , instructor and professional photographer Chris Orwig explains how browsing, organizing, and adjusting images in Photoshop Lightroom dynamically improves photo management, processing, and presentation. The training empowers photographers to establish a more effective and creative workflow so they can focus on what it's all about--the photo! Exercise files (full resolution raw files) accompany the tutorials.
