Publishing to a hard drive

From: Lightroom 5 Essentials: 02 Managing Images with the Library Module

Video: Publishing to a hard drive

Another way that you can export your video files out of Lightroom is by taking advantage of the Publish Services panel. You'll find this panel on the left hand side of the Library Module. Let's take a look at how we can publish or export some of our video files to a particular folder. So here we'll go ahead and click to expand the publish services folder. You'll notice that our first option is hard drive. What you can do is click on this setup here, this little button. When you click on that, it'll open up our Lightroom publishing manager. You can think of publishing as similar to export.

Publishing to a hard drive

Another way that you can export your video files out of Lightroom is by taking advantage of the Publish Services panel. You'll find this panel on the left hand side of the Library Module. Let's take a look at how we can publish or export some of our video files to a particular folder. So here we'll go ahead and click to expand the publish services folder. You'll notice that our first option is hard drive. What you can do is click on this setup here, this little button. When you click on that, it'll open up our Lightroom publishing manager. You can think of publishing as similar to export.

Yet it's just exporting with a little bit of built in memory, as you'll see here in just a moment. This is helpful especially when you're working with a lot of different files. So here let's go ahead and set up a particular location. I'm going to name this location video and then -max. This is going to be the area where I'll export and publish these video files where I have a really high quality setting of maximum. Next we can define the location so I'll go ahead and open up my export location. We'll export these to a specific folder. In this case to the same folder that we used before. I'll name this video.

This will save these files to this location. We'll leave the file name as it is. For the video settings though, what I want to do is include the video files. Format h.264, leave the quality setting on maximum. In doing this again, it's just going to remember all of these values. As you'll just see here in a second. Next, I'll go ahead and scroll down and see if there's anything else that we need to do here, again all of these are more relevant to working with still images so there's nothing to do with these fields. Next, what we need to do is to simply click Save.

Now when we do that, all that we've essentially done is set up this particular publish area. We've essentially just saved those export settings. Now, if we actually want to publish and export a video file, you have to select it and then drag and drop it into that area. So, we'll go ahead and do that by navigating to the Grid view. Here in the Grid view, you can see I have this video clip. I'll drag and drop this into this Publish Services, and currently, if I click on this, you'll see that I have one video file that I need to publish. Back to the Grid view.

If we want to publish some more, what we can then do is go back there. Or actually let's go back to our folder, which is videos here. And I'll go ahead and select another video file that I want to publish. This one here. And I'll drag and drop that to this area. So just a way to sort of tuck away these video files that you know you want to publish At one point. Because exporting video files, especially if they're longer than five or eight seconds, like mine here, will take a lot of time. Often, what you'll want to do is have these published here by this publish services in this sub-folder, so to speak.

And then near the end of the day, or when you have a break, go ahead and click on that. And then in order to publish these files all that you need to do is to click on the publish button which is located in this area. So here if I want to export these two files with those settings. Based on the settings that we set up for this particular field, we can then click on the publish button. And what this will do is behind the scenes it will take these files. Apply any settings which we've applied here in Lightroom. And then create those video files so that we could then use them in other locations. I should also point out while this is exporting, that we can have a number of different publish services, so you can have multiple publish services. In other words you can have different publish services so that you can publish these to different folders on different hard drives as well. Alright, well let's go ahead and wait for this process to be complete. Then, once this is complete.

What we'll do is we'll open up that finder window in order to take a look at these files. Now that this process is complete, it's telling us that these two video clips have been published. This is great, because this is helpful. So that you don't republish those unnecessarily. And then next, what I want to do is open up the finder window. Where these file exist and here we can see if we drag this down a little bit, we have the file which we created in the last movie. Then we also have these two new movies which we've created and which we've exported from this particular location by taking advantage of setting up a publish services which publishes or exports these files to a particular location on a hard drive.

Now there also are some other publish services as well for example we can publish video files to places like Facebook as well. So let's take a look at how we can work with the other Publish Service and let's do that in the next movie.
