In this course, Jan Kabili provides an approachable introduction to organizing, editing, and sharing photos in Lightroom. The course offers a quick-start approach to the basics, from importing photos from a camera or a hard drive, to managing photos in the Library module, to improving photos by adjusting exposure, recovering details from highlights and shadows, sharpening, and more. Jan also includes a look at popular Lightroom features for sharing photos: exporting, printing, and creating slideshows.
I hope you've enjoyed this course, Up and Running with Photoshop Lightroom 3, and that you now have a real sense of what Lightroom is for and how you can use it in your own work. As you know, we focused on the key features and techniques that I think you need to get started using Lightroom. So, what's next? Well, it may go without saying, but I strongly suggest that you practice what I've shown you here. That's the best way to really get it under your belt and to see which features and techniques make most sense for you in your own workflow. If you have questions about other Lightroom features that we didn't touch on in this introductory course, you may want to take a look at the Photoshop Lightroom 3 Essential Training course in the lynda.com Online Training Library.
There you'll find additional information on more advanced features, like Tone Curve, the HSL and Color panel, Black and White, Split Toning, and more. In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed using Lightroom 3, and I hope to see you in one of my other courses here at the lynda.com Online Training Library.
