In Photoshop Lightroom 3 Essential Training, author Chris Orwig provides a comprehensive look at Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3, the popular photo-asset management, enhancement, and publishing program. The course covers indispensable techniques such as importing, processing, and organizing images in the Library, correcting and adjusting images in the Develop module, and creating slideshows, web galleries, and print picture packages. In addition to exploring all of Lightroom 3's capabilities, this course is rich with creative tips and expert advice on photographic workflow. Exercise files accompany the course.
In my particular case, I have what's called a Flickr Pro Account. What that means is I have a little bit more functionality and storage space, et cetera. What it means in regards to Lightroom is that I can actually interact with some of the comments that are posted on Flickr. For example, if I go ahead and add a comment to this particular image here, what I'm going to do is add a comment, which says, Wow! It's kind of funny comment on my own photograph, but I'll go ahead and do that, and I'll post that comment, Well, once I've made a comment like that, what I can do is I can navigate back to Lightroom.
Over on the right-hand side, if I select one of these images, you can see that there aren't any current comments that have been downloaded into Lightroom. In order to refresh this, I'll click on the little Refresh icon, and it will bring that comment, as well as the Favorite Count, into this particular panel. Now to add another comment, I'm going to go ahead and say really cool! Then I'll refresh this one more time. In that case, what it's going to do is actually upload that comment. So, let's take a look at that, back on Flickr. Here we go.
In Flickr, we are going to refresh our view of this particular photograph, and we'll see that we have two comments that have now been added to that image. So, one of things that you're starting to discover is that you can start to really get things out there and dialogue and interact with the community. I also want you to keep in mind that while I'm doing this with Flickr, and with my Flickr Pro Account, eventually, we're going to start to see some other features come up where we're going to be able to upload our images, and our clients are going to be able to add some comments, and we'll have a bit of an online dialog with them in regards to which images are keepers or not.
In this current context, I'm obviously showing Flickr, yet we'll soon discover that there will be more and more services and plug-ins that will allow us to extend Lightrooms reach even further.
