Hi, I'm Jan Kabili and this is Up and Running with Photoshop Lightroom 4. This streamline course zeros in on what every photographer, hobbyist or pro needs to know to get started using Lightroom 4 to edit, organize and share photographs and video clips. In this course I'll focus on core tasks, starting with how to import your photos into Lightroom's library. Then I'll show you practical techniques for organizing your growing Photo Library so that you can quickly find particular photos later.
Next, we'll turn to the Develop module, the heart of Lightroom where I'll walk you through a straightforward workflow for editing your photographs using the Global Controls in the Basic Panel. We'll talk about setting white balance, bringing detail back into highlights and shadows and making colors pop. I'll show you how to correct part of a photo with the powerful adjustment brush and graduated filters. I'll even cover how to correct and trim video clips right here in Lightroom. We'll finish the course with a look at popular ways to share your work directly from Lightroom including emailing, uploading to Facebook, printing and creating stunning professionally printed books to show off your best photos.
