Publishing video to Facebook

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

Video: Publishing video to Facebook

When you're interested in sharing your still images or your video files in other areas, like Behance, Facebook, or Flicker, you can take advantage of some of the published services which have some built in connections to these particular places. For example, let's say with this video file, if I want to share this on Facebook what you can do is simply navigate to the publisher services panel. Go on that to expand it, and then click on the Facebook area, and click on the option for setup. This will open up our Lightroom Publishing Manager. And in this case what we need to do is to go through then entire process unit here.

Publishing video to Facebook

When you're interested in sharing your still images or your video files in other areas, like Behance, Facebook, or Flicker, you can take advantage of some of the published services which have some built in connections to these particular places. For example, let's say with this video file, if I want to share this on Facebook what you can do is simply navigate to the publisher services panel. Go on that to expand it, and then click on the Facebook area, and click on the option for setup. This will open up our Lightroom Publishing Manager. And in this case what we need to do is to go through then entire process unit here.

I'll go ahead and name this one. I'll just name this one CO-FB for Facebook. Next, I need to authorize this so I can make the connection between Lightroom and Facebook. And so, then here we'll go ahead and click on Authorize on Facebook. And then we'll click OK to agree to these Terms of Services in order to be able to make the connection between Lightroom and Facebook. And here I've already logged into the account. So all that I need to do is click Connect. Now once you click Connect, you can go ahead and close your web browser and navigate back to Lightroom. And in this case, you'll notice that this account is authorized.

Then, what we can do is we can define the location where we want to save the still image or, in this case, the video file. I'll just leave this in this particular location. We can define the title based on IPTC information or we can also just use the filename as well. And we can change the filename. Here, I'll go ahead and change this to a custom name, and I'll just name this one Rob, to create a little bit more of a simple name. In regards to the video file, I want to choose a quality setting which is a little bit lower. I'll choose a quality setting of Medium, which will work well for Facebook. After we have customized these various settings, all that we need to do is click Save.

And, again, remember that the publish services are just a way to save these Export settings. So if we navigate down to the publish services panel, you can see that we have this particular folder, we have this particular location on Facebook where we can save these files to. Here, I'll go to the Grid view, so I can then select the thumbnail for the file that I want to publish there. I'll copy that to that location and then I'll go ahead and click on that. When you're ready to publish that up to the world wide web and to publish it on Facebook, just click Publish. And what that will do is it will then apply all of the settings, which we've applied to this file here in Lightroom. It will also upload this file onto Facebook, so that you can then share it with others via that particular site.

Now, we can also do this with these other sites as well, and the process is nearly identical, although the log in is just a little bit different. So here let's go ahead and take a look at how this will appear on Facebook. And, in this case, you can see that we have this video file, which is now part of this particular post. In this case, we could play this post back where others could watch this video file. And you can see how this can be a really valuable way to take your images or your video files and be able to get those out with the world, in this case, by focusing in on how we can share them on Facebook.

Now, also keep in mind, of course, that we can share these files in other ways, as well, working with these various sites, which are listed here. Or if you want to find more services you can always click on this icon here in order to dig around a bit and define some more services, where you can share your content, so that you can get it out there and share it with the world.
