Lightroom's library module has powerful search features that you can use to find …just the photos you're looking for. That's particularly true if you've added …keywords to your photos. But there are lots of other properties …you can search on too. I happen to be working here with some …photos to which I've already added keywords. …Let's add a couple more keywords. I'm going to select this photo and the …one next to it, and then I'm going to go to my keyword list and click the Plus symbol. …I'll type the new keyword, Italy, and I'll make sure that Add to Selected …Photos is checked and click Create so that my new Italy keyword is …automatically added to the two selected photos.…
I'll leave those photos selected, and I'm going to add another key word to them. …I happen to have the key word fountain already in my key word list, I've already …applied that to two other photos. To apply it to these two photos, I'll …click the checkbox to the left of the word fountain in the key word list. …Now, I'd like to have just the second folder selected here. …
Then you'll learn key ways to manage your photos in Lightroom, from reviewing photos after a shoot to working with Smart Previews when your photos are offline. This part of the course covers making collections, adding keywords, and much more.
Next, the course introduces the Lightroom Develop module and its features for improving a photo's appearance, including adjusting tone and color, cropping and fixing perspective, converting to black and white, reducing noise, and sharpening. It explores how to make local adjustments with the Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, Graduated Filter, and Spot Removal tools. The course ends with a look at the most commonly used Lightroom features for sharing photos: exporting, printing, and sharing online.
