- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Jan Kabili. Welcome to Up and Running with Photoshop Lightroom 3. This course is a no-frills, streamlined guide to just what you need to know about Lightroom 3. We'll home right in on the tasks that are central to Lightroom, starting with importing photos to Lightroom from a digital camera, and from your existing photo collection. I'll show you key techniques for managing your photo collection in Lightroom, including organizing your photos with keywords, using a simple photo rating system that works, and sifting through a large collection of photos to find just the one you're looking for.

Then we'll get to the real magic: correcting your photos using Lightroom's intuitive basic controls. I'll walk you through a photo correction workflow that tackles whitebalance, exposure, and contrast. I'll show you how to bring detail back into clipped highlights, how to fix back-lit photos, and how to add extra snap to your photographs. So, let's jump in and get up and running with Photoshop Lightroom 3.
