Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing photos from a camera, part of Learning Lightroom 5.
When you finish a shoot, you can have Lightroom both copy the photos from your …camera's memory card to a drive and import those photos into Lightroom. …This process is slightly different from the process for importing from a drive, …that I've already shown you. So let's see how it's done from a …camera's memory card. I'm working in my default Lightroom …catalog to which I've already imported older photos in a fairly well-organized …folder system that I prepared outside of Lightroom. …And you can see that folder system here in my folders panel in the Library module. …Because I've got this folder system set up, I can just slot new photos from my …camera into this system wherever they belong.…
I'll be importing photos from a 2012 shoot. …So I'll import them into the 2012 folder and I'll put them into a new sub-folder. …Now, let's say I'm working with these particular photos and that's when I …decide I want to import some more photos from my cameras memory card. …But what I'd like to do is come right back to this folder, that I'm working in, …
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.
