(chiming music) - [Voiceover] Welcome, My name is Chris Orwig and I'm excited about this course because here we'll focus in on new features in Lightroom. Now, there are too many features to list them all, so here, I simply want to highlight a few. We'll look at how we can view our images in true full screen and we'll explore how we can work with Upright. Upright allows us to not only level our photographs, but it also enables us to fix perspective issues, which sometimes happen when working with wide angle lenses.

Next, we'll look at how we can perform some advanced healing and retouching using some new functionality that we have with our retouching tools. We'll explore how we can work with the Radial Filter which allows us to apply selective adjustments to our photographs in some fascinating ways, and one of my favorite new features is called Smart Previews. Smart Previews will increase your overall workflow speed and flexibility as they allow you to continue to work on your images even when the hard drive, where those images reside, is offline.

We'll also look at how we can add video to slideshows. Now we'll be covering all of these features and more, so without further delay, let's begin.
