Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing the exercise files, part of Learning Lightroom 3.
This is an important movie for everyone, whether you're using the lynda.com…exercise files or your own photos to work through this course.…If you are a Premium subscriber to the lynda.com Online Training Library, you…can download the exercise files that I prepared for you.…But if you don't have access to those exercise files, you can certainly use your…own photos to practice along with me.…In either case, I suggest you set up a separate Lightroom catalog for the photos…you'll be using to work through this course, and that's what I'm going to show…you how to do in this movie.…
Although I normally recommend that you use one main catalog for all your photos,…in this case I think you should use a separate catalog for your exercise…files, or your own practice files, so that you don't mix them in with your…personal work, and so that you keep your main catalog pristine while you're…learning Lightroom.…Start by putting the exercise files folder, or a folder of your own practice…photos, on your Desktop.…
