We've seen that one thing that can make files or folders go missing from inside Lightroom. …Is if you move those files or folders outside of Lightroom in your operating system. …The same is true if you rename files or folders in your operating system. …Let's see if we can simulate that problem. …And see how to fix that from inside of Lightroom. …So here, I have this vertical photo of bottles. …Let's say that out of my operating system, I changed the name of this file …from the one that you see here to something like bottles.…
By the way, if you don't see the file names on these thumbnails, just press the …J key to cycle through the thumbnail styles until you see a file name here. …Now I'm going to go out to my operating system, and I'll locate that photo of …bottles, which is this one here, in the 02_11 folder. …I'm going to select it and I'm just going to type a different name for it. …I'll type bottles, and Enter or Return on my keyboard, and that's renamed the photo …in the operating system. Let's go back to Lightroom. …
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.
