Here I want to share with you just a couple of different Web sites that have information about working with Lightroom Web galleries. In particular, I want to share with you some sites where you can not only learn about Web galleries, but where you can also download or purchase different types of Web galleries that you can include in Lightroom and then take full advantage of in order to expedite your overall Lightroom gallery workflow. Well the first thing that I want to highlight here is the Lightroom Exchange. If you navigate to Google and type out Lightroom Exchange and then do a quick search, you will discover that the top link, Adobe Lightroom Exchange, will take us to a section on Adobe site where we can get more information about how we can extend the functionality of Lightroom.
Now currently, I am viewing this as Staff Picks and here we can see a number of different options, plug-ins, etcetera. Well what we want to do is sort by Web gallery. So let's click on that option in the Browse By Category section over here on the right. Well now that I am just viewing the Lightroom Web galleries, what I can do is sort these by Most Recent, Most Popular or Highest Rated. In order to do that, simply click on the link there. Now some of these galleries you will have to purchase, some you can download for free. But what you'll discover is a whole range of different types of Web galleries you can use and install and integrate into your Lightroom workflow.
All right, well let me highlight just a couple of other sites as well. The next site I want to highlight is lrbportfolio.com. This is a site that was put together by one of my colleagues and friends Sean McCormack and Sean was actually the tech editor on the Lightroom book that I wrote. He is a great guy and he knows a ton about Lightroom and he provides on his site some really interesting Lightroom Web site galleries. The next site that I want to visit here is lightroomgalleries.com, yet another place where you'll find a collection of different Web galleries.
The last one that I want highlight is actually really interesting. This one is slideshowpro.net and what you want to do here is navigate to Slideshow Pro and then click on Slideshow Pro for Lightroom. This will take you down the page where you can discover how you can use this particular tool with Lightroom. In order to use this tool, you can either download the free trial or purchase it, and this one does cost money, but in some ways you get what you pay for and this particular tool is phenomenal. So you might want to do is navigate to this site and then go back to the link once you've learned about how to work with us in Lightroom and then go to Examples.
Here you will discover a number of different ways how other photographers have integrated Slideshow Pro into their Web sites. All right well in closing, if you haven't ever visited any of these Web sites, I definitely recommended that you do so and a good starting point of course would be that Lightroom Exchange and then go to the Lightroom Web Gallery section where you'll discover a number of different Lightroom Web galleries that you might find to be useful in your own workflow.
