- Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig. I'm a photographer, author, and educator. And welcome to this series: Lightroom V Essentials. You know, Lightroom has quickly become, one of the most dominant image-editing tools in the world. And if you're curious to learn why, to discover how you can use Lightroom to improve your workflow and your photographs, well you've come to the right place. The goal for this series, is to cover what you need to know in order to begin to achieve professional results. In this installment, the sixth in our series, we're focusing on how we can create slideshows, and web galleries.

You know, so often in digital photography, our photographs are "varied" or lost on our hard drives. Well this is a course which will help you to get your photographs out there, to share those images with the world. In this course, we'll be covering a range of topics. Let me highlight a few: We'll talk about how we can use the web module, in order to create web galleries. And we'll start off looking at how we can use templates and how we can then customize those templates and eventually upload our online galleries so we can share our photographs with others.

We'll also explore how we can work with the slideshow module which gives you the ability to design custom slideshows. Here we'll begin working with templates, and then we'll explore how we can customize the overall layout. We'll also examine how we can export our slideshow to different file formats, whether that's jpeg, pdf, or video. Now we'll be covering all of these topics and more so without further delay, let's begin.
