Video: Selecting the video files

In this chapter we will take a look at a workflow example where we will import some still images and a video file into light room. And we'll do this so that we can review some of the topics which we have already covered. And next we'll talk about how we can use these assets in order to build a slideshow, which includes still images, a video file and a sound track. Well here, I'll begin by clicking on the Import button, in order to launch the import dialogue. On my desktop, I have a folder titled Slide Show Files. I'll go ahead and select those images, and a video file. Here, I'm going to move them to a new location, so that you can work with these files as well.

Selecting the video files

In this chapter we will take a look at a workflow example where we will import some still images and a video file into light room. And we'll do this so that we can review some of the topics which we have already covered. And next we'll talk about how we can use these assets in order to build a slideshow, which includes still images, a video file and a sound track. Well here, I'll begin by clicking on the Import button, in order to launch the import dialogue. On my desktop, I have a folder titled Slide Show Files. I'll go ahead and select those images, and a video file. Here, I'm going to move them to a new location, so that you can work with these files as well.

Here I'll select the exercise files folder and simply click import. This will allow us to begin to move these images over and begin to work with them, and access them, here in Lightroom. Now as I mentioned, these are some photographs that we'll be using to create this slideshow. And the content or the subject of the photographs is my youngest daughter, Elsie. And in this case I have some cute snapshots that I captured with my iPhone, and Elsie has a few bigger sisters. If we look at one of these photographs we'll discover that sometimes her big sisters will dress her up, like in this case they dressed her up for For Easter. Another situation, I walked into the room and she was buried in a pile of clothes and then I walked into the garage and there she was inside of this bucket, so again I want to work with these cute snapshots in order to create a slideshow. Well first what we want to do is select the photographs we want to work on. In this case, the folder of images right here titled slideshow. Next we'll navigate to the slideshow module by clicking on the slideshow module picker button After we've done that, what we need to do is to create a collection which is a slide show collection which includes all of these photographs. To do that we can either click on the plus icon, and choose create slideshow. Or you can also click on this button here to create a saved slideshow. In this case, we'll go ahead and type out her name, which is Elsie. I'll just save this on the top level here, so no need to check off any of these options here.

Simply click create and what that will do for us. Is it will give us a collection, which is a slide show collection so that we can then further customize the slide show. Well now that I have imported these photographs in we've selected them and then created this collection which is a side show collection. Next what we need to do obviously is begin to customize a slide show So let's take a look at how we can do that and in particular let's focus in on how we can work with these still images and a video file and we'll do that in the next movie.
