- Hello, I'm Tim Grey. I've been taking photographs for as long as I can remember, and for the last 15 years, I've focused my energy on helping photographers make the most of their digital workflow, through books, magazine articles, speaking appearances, and video training. I've always been fascinated by the still image. Over the years, however, I've become increasingly interested in putting moving images to use, as well. I'll often record short video clips that complement the subject I'm photographing, and then I incorporate those videos into slideshows, and other methods of sharing the results with others.
Today's digital cameras enable you to record video with excellent quality and flexibility, which is creating increased interest in capturing and sharing video, even among photographers who have long focused exclusively on the still image. In this course, I'm going to show you how much you can do with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, to manage, optimize, and share your videos clips, right alongside your still photos. I'll start by showing you some of the basics of working with video in Lightroom, including how to import video clips, review those clips, and delete any outtakes.
I'll then demonstrate the many tools you can use to keep your videos organized, from adding star ratings and color labels, applying keywords and even adding location information to your videos directly from a map. And of course, after organizing your videos, we'll also explore how to locate specific clips using filters and searches. Next, we'll take a look at the various ways you can edit your videos, including trimming clips to shorten them, as well as applying color and tonal adjustments, to change the appearance of your videos.
Finally, I'll show you how easy it is to share your videos with others, including exporting the edited video, and automatically uploading videos to sharing sites such as Flickr and Facebook. We've reached a great crossroads where our cameras enable us to capture excellent video, and Lightroom 4 enables us to organize, optimize, and share those videos with ease. So join me, as we explore the many things you can do with video in Lightroom.
