Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing the collection cover photo, part of Learning Lightroom Mobile: Improve Your Workflow.
- [Instructor] The first workflow tip that I want to highlight here is one which gives you the ability to change your collection cover photo. The cover photos that we can see here are a square crop of an image inside of the collection. So, if we tap on the collection for Wallace, we can see that it's actually choosing the first image in this collection, which isn't really that good of an image, it's kind of hard to read when it's small and cropped, so I want to choose something which is better. In order to do that, what you want to do is go to this grid view and you want to try to find an image which you feel is representative of the photographs inside the collection.
Go ahead and tap and hold. When you do that, it will open up this menu. You want to tap on the item there, which says Set as Cover, it's right near the bottom. And then once you've done that, if you go back, you can see that that image is now the collection cover photograph. Now, I do want to highlight one thing here in regards to that. We saw that when we're inside of this dialog, if we tap and hold, it opens up this menu. Yet, if we're on the next screen, which is this space where we can edit our photographs, if we tap and hold in this environment, it shows us our before.
Let go, and then we see the after. So, when you're in the environment where you can edit your images and make adjustments, that shortcut changes. So, you want to make sure that you're using it inside of this grid view. This is where you want to tap and hold on the image and then choose that option to Set as Cover.
