Here I want to highlight an exciting new feature inside of the Lightroom 4 beta, and I think this new feature is going to be really popular, and here's why. It allows you to take your video files that you've worked on inside of Lightroom and to export or to publish them directly to different sites like Facebook or Flickr. And why I think this is going to be so exciting is because you can take these videos that you have and get them out there, share them with your friends, with your clients, share them with the world, and get some interesting feedback on these videos that you're creating. All right! Well, here as a way of a demo, I am going to focusing on sharing a video on Facebook.
This is a video clip that I've mentioned before and here you can see it was just that first tender moment. That little kiss, which I think is so precious. So I want to share this video on Facebook. Well, the first step in order to be able to do this is to go to your Publish Service panel. You can open that up if it's closed simply by clicking on it. Then, click on the Set Up button here to open the Lightroom Publishing Manager, and what you'll want to do is give this a name. I'll go ahead put my initials there, and then Facebook.
You can call this whatever you want to call it, and then you need to authorize this on Facebook. I'll go ahead and click OK to do that, and then I've authorized that there, and I am going to close that Facebook window in the background, and you can see it's already authorized. Now, of course, if you aren't logged into Facebook, it will simply ask you to log in, and then it will automatically authorize that. Now you have some options here as far as how you want to publish this; how and where I should say, the Facebook album, the title, if you want to rename this some other way, and then of course you have these different video compression settings, which we've seen before.
Now Max will be a little bit overkill. I am going to go down to Medium that's going to be suitable for web sharing and higher end tablets that will be online, and everything else looks good as far as the rest of the settings there. Now this isn't an image, so that's not relevant or output sharpening or metadata, again, those are all extras. So basically what I am doing is I am creating a preset, I am creating a Publish Services preset for exporting or publishing to Facebook. The final thing to do here is simply to click Save.
Well, now that I've done that, I simply need to drag this video to that option there, my Wall Photos. Go to that option, and then let's press the G key. This will take us to the view, so that we can see what we have to publish. The next step will be to click on the Publish button. You can find it in the lower left- hand corner, and so what that will do is it will upload that to my Facebook account, so that I can then share that with others. So now I am going to go ahead and open up that Facebook page, and you can see on my wall that I have this little video.
I'll click Play in order to play that, and we'll just scroll down here a little bit and you can see we have a nice little quality version of that, and then is now live and on Facebook. All right! Well, momentarily, let's jump back to Lightroom, as you can see that process is really easy. If you have other videos that you'd like to post in that same way, you simply would select them, drag them to that Facebook Publish Service setting, and then click Publish. Now, of course, you can do the same thing with your Flickr accounts, and then you can click on this button here to find other services online.
So as you can see, this process is really simple, and it's seamless. It's one of those new features that you'll definitely want to try out.
