One thing that can be really disconcerting for a Lightroom user is …when files and folders go missing from your Lightroom catalog. …And you usually see a warning from Lightroom that a file is missing, you …can't work on it, or you'll see a question mark on a folder. …In this movie, I want to explain why that happens and help you to avoid the problem. …And to fix it when it does happen. One of the most common reasons that you …might have files or folders go missing in Lightroom, is that you've moved them, …from outside of Lightroom, out in your Operating System.…
So, let's go out to my operating system. An let's say that I'm tidying things up, …an I realize that this particular photo, this vertical photo that's in my Paris …folder, really doesn't belong there. That photo was taken in Sienna, so I want …to put it in the Sienna folder. If I move that photo in my operating …system, here on the Mac I can just drag it, lightroom won't know where it is. …And let's say I go a step further and I move an entire folder. …
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.
