In Photoshop Lightroom 3 Advanced Techniques, photographer Chris Orwig shows how to master the subtleties of Lightroom 3 and maximize its efficiency. The course begins with an in-depth exploration of Lightroom catalogs to keep track of photos, collections, keywords, stacks, and more. Along the way, Chris shows how to integrate Bridge and Photoshop in the Lightroom workflow and shares advanced techniques, including image editing with the adjustment brush, automating actions, using plug-ins and extensions, exporting to email or an FTP server, and more. Exercise files are included with the course.
Because this chapter was focused in on, and dedicated, to speed and shortcuts, I thought it would be fitting to share with you a few resources that can help you dig deeper into becoming more efficient and effective with Lightroom. Now for those of you who are interested in taking this to the next level, there is a program out there. It's called RPG keys. You can find more information about it at rpgkeys.com. And basically this is a plug-in, which you can use in order to speed up your workflow by leaps and bounds. It allows you to control aspects of Lightroom by simple keystrokes.
Now another more simple, yet nonetheless really valuable resource, you can find on Julieanne Kost site. Julieanne Kost is a great friend and amazing photographer, and she has this great little handout here, which you can download for free. If you go to her site and then you click on the section for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, you may need to dig around a little bit, but what you're looking for is Julieanne's Favorite Tips and Tricks Handout. And there you're going to find a handful of really valuable shortcuts-- some of the shortcuts that we've covered in the last few movies, but also some other shortcuts that we haven't covered. So be sure to visit her site and check out that free PDF file, because I think you'll find that it will become a great resource for you.
