Join photographer and author Chris Orwig in Photoshop Lightroom 4 Essentials: Organizing and Sharing with the Library Module, as he explores the interface of this popular image-management program and shows how to use its Library module to organize and manage a photo library. The course covers importing both still images and video; shooting in tethered-capture mode; organizing and rating images with flags, stars, labels, and location tags; and working with collections. The course also details how to export, email, and share photos, and introduces the Lightroom 4 video-editing features, as well as its ability to work together with the full editing power of Photoshop. Exercise files are included with the course.
While the process for publishing video files to Facebook and Flickr is pretty similar, I thought it might be helpful to just show that process here for Flickr, which is what I'm going to do. So on the Publish Services Panel let's go ahead and click on Set Up. This will open up the Lightroom Publishing Manager. I am going to go ahead and name this one CO-Flickr. Next, I need to log into my Flickr account, so I will go ahead and click Log In, and this will ask me if I want to authorize this and indeed, I'm going to go ahead and do that. Now in the Flickr window here-- I'll pull this one over--it says, hey! You've arrived at this page because you followed a link from an IM or something not associated with Lightroom.
Well that's not the case I came here because of Lightroom. So I will go ahead and click Next. This allows me to authorize this and go ahead and then click on Authorize. Now once I've authorized this, what I can then do is go back to Lightroom. Back here in Lightroom, I'll click Done. This shows me I am now Logged in. Next, how do I want to title this video file that I'm going to upload? In this case, I will just use the file name. I will rename the file name to something a little bit better, so I am going to use a custom name here, and I will just call this one, Rob_Machado.
I am going to upload the video portrait, this short little seven-second clip there. Next for my Video Compression settings, I am going to go to Medium, which is good for sharing on the web and higher-end tablets. Image Sizing, that's not relevant to us for this. All of these other ones aren't relevant except for Privacy. Make this Public so anyone can see it. And then I'll go ahead and click Save. Now once I've done that, I can go ahead and drag a video file to this particular Photostream here. Then I can go to this Photostream in this case in the Grid View so I can see this needs to be published. I will click the Publish button.
This will then publish this file and upload it to Flickr and of course, as always, this will take place in the background. And once this is complete, I'll go ahead and navigate to Flickr and we will check it out. All right, well now that that upload is complete, I am going to go ahead and navigate to my Flickr Photostream. So I will go ahead and click on that to see what that's like. And here we can see I have this video, and I could click to play that. This is going to play this much larger in this window here. What I can do then is click to kind of see how the quality looks. And I am going to turn the volume off here, just so that's really low, and we will go ahead and check it out.
That looks pretty good. And again, just kind of a fun video portrait, and that upload is complete. Able to scrub that. Check that out. That is live. And so as you can see, publishing or exporting to Facebook or Flickr is really quite a simple process.
