Show off your hard work; display your photographs with the easy-to-build slideshows and web galleries in Lightroom. They're a straightforward way to display images on the web, on the desktop, or projected onto a screen. In this breezy segment of Lightroom 5 Essentials, Chris Orwig explains how to select your best images and group them into collections, apply a design template, and customize the look and feel of your web gallery or slideshow. Then learn about watermarking photos for copyright protection, uploading HTML and Flash galleries to a website, and adding a soundtrack and titles to a slideshow. Plus, discover how to create video-based slideshows, new to Lightroom 5.
If these movies on the Lightroom web galleries have piqued your interest. And if you're interested in learning how to work with these, perhaps, even more effectively. Or if you're interested in kind of creating web galleries that are even stronger, you may find these resources helpful here. And what I want to do is just share with you four different sites. Or you can find some more information about working with Lightroom web galleries. The first site is the Adobe Exchange site. You can navigate to Adobe Exchange, and then Lightroom Exchange, and you can do this by doing a simple Google search for Adobe Lightroom Exchange. Once you get to the URL, simply click on Web Gallery. And it will show you different Web Gallery plug ins some which are free, others which you have to purchase.
Some of these plug ins are really powerful and strong like this one here. If you click on this information for this one, it can take you to this site, The Turning Gate. This allows you to take some of these Lightroom Web Galleries and rather than just having a gallery, you can actually create a fully functioning website. So again this extends this reach, you still worked right inside of Lightroom. But now you can do more another site that I want to highlight is this one here its Lightroom-blog.com/lrbportfolio.
And here you can find other plugins which allow you to create portfolio websites while using Lightroom. Click through the Sample Gallery section in order to see if this one might be a fit for you. The last resource site that I want to highlight or share with you is this one, it's slideshowpro.net. This one provides perhaps the most powerful and flexible option. Again, it allows you to work with Lightroom in order to create functioning slideshows, galleries or sites. And what you want to do is navigate to this site and look at the various examples to see how this works. And then explore how you can use the Slideshow Pro Director in the Lightroom plug-in In order to design and build slide shows, galleries and web sites. Now this one again, it costs something, yet there is a free trial which might be worthwhile to tinker with.
Perhaps most importantly, I want to share with you these various resource sites just to get you thinking about how you might extend Lightroom's reach. How you might take this even farther, in order to make even more effective Lightroom Galleries.
