In Photoshop Lightroom 3 New Features, photographer and author Chris Orwig explores the enhancements that Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 brings to each phase of the photographic workflow—from importing and editing, to exporting and publishing. This course details Lightroom 3's new importing and asset-management features and its significant improvements in the Develop module, including enhanced sharpening and noise reduction. Chris also shows how Lightroom 3 broadens output options, and shares workflow tips and advice for upgrading Lightroom 2 catalogs and working with images processed in earlier Lightroom versions. Exercise files are included with the course.
One of the problems with this particular setup here is the image is just kind of floating around, and I want it to be part of a set. So I am going to go ahead and delete this image from my Flickr account. Sure, and that's now gone. When I go back to Lightroom, one of the things that I want to do is I want to remove this photo here from the collection. So I'll right-click or Ctrl+click, and I'll say, hey, remove that from this particular Photostream. And then I am going to go back to my neon_ graveyard folder, these photos here of David. What I am going to do, rather than just randomly upload images, is I want them to be part of this set or this group, and it's actually pretty simple.
You click on this plus icon and you go to Create Photoset. Creating a photoset is a lot like a collection, in the sense that it's not contingent upon where the file is located. We're going to create a photoset, and this photoset we are going to call david duchemin. We'll include the selected photos and I only have one selected, but that's fine, and go ahead and hit Create. Well, now I have one photo inside of the set. Well, let's add the others. So we'll go ahead and select these guys and then bring them down to the set. So you can either add the photos to your set initially, select them all and then create the set, or after the fact.
It's really simple either way. Now, the other problem that I've set up for myself is that in my settings I've chosen to name my files david duchemin - something. My File Naming isn't going to go really work for other photos, so I need to edit that. Click on the plus sign. I am going to go to Edit Settings. This will open up the Lightroom Publishing Manager. In this particular case, what I want to do is rather than a custom name, I am just going to do the filename. Here I could just use a filename, whatever it is, or for that matter I could say, leave it blank. You know what, I don't want to file name at all.
I am going to add all of my file names inside of Flickr or whatever other photo sharing site that I'm using. So I'm not going to Rename these files or anything. I am just going to say let's leave those blank. I have all the other settings just as is. So I've essentially modified my Lightroom Publishing Manager to work a little bit more clearly with a lot of different types of photographs. We'll go ahead and hit Save here. Well, now that I've done that, you have to changed the settings for all this connections. Do I want to re-publish? I'll just leave this as-is. I don't need to modify the other images.
Now, in this particular case, I do want to upload this folder, so I'll go ahead, and I'm going to just click on one of the images there. It doesn't really matter if I've all of them or one of them, but I just wanted to make sure that these are all in the right set and I'll click Publish. Now, it's going to update this on Flickr and give me a little bit of progress, and once these have been published, it will say, hey yeah, all of these photos have been published, and it's good to go up to Flickr and to check this out. So we'll wait for this publishing to be complete. It will just take a second here, which is really nice.
And then what I'm going to do is right- click this folder and choose Show in Flickr. You can either right-click the folder or Ctrl+click it. In this case, we can see that I have the photos. I could add a description if I wanted to, and I can go through and view this little set. Now, if I go back to my particular location here, where I have my main Photostream, you notice that I do have this little set here of david duchemin and all four of those photos are in their own set. They are now at the top of my Photostream, but nonetheless they're up there.
Now, if I want to change the titles, what I can do in Flickr is just go ahead and type the name in and then save those out. I'll go ahead and just type them out, david, just to keep things really simple. It might be a little bit more exciting to do a name that's perhaps a little bit more relevant. Yet nonetheless, just says, hey, yeah, this is who the guy is. All right. Well, that wraps up our look and how we can take advantage of that new Flickr plug-in, and how we can organize things even a bit further so that we can be even more effective with sharing our photos and getting them out there.
If you want to see some of these photos online, you can navigate to my Photostream. It's flickr.com/photos/chrisorwig.
