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.

This is the course that will really help you to develop to a more effective workflow. We'll be covering a range of topics in this course. Let me highlight a few. We'll talk about how ewe can use flags, stars, and labels in order to rate or rank our photographs. We'll also look at how we can filter and find our images based on the flag, star, or label. We'll look at some workflow techniques, like how we can organize images into collections, or how we can take advantage of the Map module, which allows us to group images together based on the GPS data.

We'll explore how we can add some important medatada information like keywords or copyright information. We'll look at how we can take our images in Lightroom and open those up in Photoshop.
