Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring the Library module, part of Up and Running with Lightroom 3.
The Library module is one of the first stops in a typical Lightroom workflow.…It's where you'll go to view and organize the photos that you import to a…Lightroom catalog, like the exercise files catalog where I am working now.…In the Library module you can rate, keyword, sort, and make collections of photos,…as we will do later in this chapter.…But first, let's take a tour of the Library module to get a sense of its…features and how it's laid out.…The overall layout of the Library module is similar to that of the other modules.…
There is a main window and in the case of the Library module, the main window…contains previews of the photos that are in your Lightroom catalog.…The main window is surrounded by a couple of bars and some panels and panel groups.…Up at the top, there's a bar that includes the module picker, which you'll use to…jump to other modules.…Over on the left is a group of panels.…I think of these panels as source panels because many of them control which…photos show up here in the document window and down here in the filmstrip.…
