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.
Next I want to take a look at how we can add keywords by using the painter tool, an also, how we can work with the keyword list in order to add keywords into filter an find specific photographs. Let's begin by taking a look at how we can use the painter tool. Go ahead an press the G key to enter into the grid view. Next what I want you to do is to navigate to the toolbar which is located in this area here. And click on the triangle icon and choose the option for painter. This will open up the Painter Tool. You can then click on it, in order to customize what you're going to use or add with this particular tool.
Here rather than flagging, I want to choose the option of keywords. I'm going to go ahead and name this or add a particular keyword here which is California. So go ahead and type that in there. And then you can position you cursor over the image, what this will allow you to do is add that keyword to these photographs. All you need to do is click, and when you do that, you can see that it will add that keyword. When you're finished with adding keywords in that way, you can go ahead and click done I should also point out that you can add multiple keywords, just seperate those by adding a coma between the various keywords.
Alright well here let's go ahead and click done. Next, let's look at how we can work with our keyword list. Well here in the keyword list, you can see I added the keyword "California" to 5 photographs. What I can do is I can just view those 5 photographs by clicking on the little arrow icon Notice that the arrow icon will show up as I hover over the various keywords. In this case, when you click on that, it will then filter. And just show you the images which have those keywords applied. It also show us our metadata filtering option open.
And here, it's showing key wording. And showing us those images. And that that particular option is selected. Now, if we want to turn this filter off, what we can do is we can click on this metadata panel first to close it. That will then turn the filtering off. And here you can now see you can view all of these photographs. Let's go back to the Jeff folder in order to view that, so we can really focus in on that particular folder. And this image here. Well what about using the keyword list to add keywords? Here I'll scroll up so that we can see the area where we have the keywords for this picture.
Notice that for this first photograph we have these keywords applied, California, Jeff Johnson, Train Tracks, and Ventura. I also want to apply the keyword for the camera that was used, in this case a large 4 by 5 camera. To do that, just navigate to the keyword list and here we can click on that checkbox. You'll notice that that key word will now show up here as one of the keyword tags for this photograph. So here we're discovering yet another way to add keywords. We looked at how we can use the painter tool.
And how we can add keywords by simply adding the keyword here, and clicking on the photographs. We also explored how we can begin to work with the keyword list. This way, we can add or remove keywords by clicking the checkbox. We can also do some filtering by clicking on the Arrow icon which is located to the right of the keyword name there. It will just show us the images which have that particular keyword tag applied.
