Project Description

Learn to master Adobe Lightroom's 5 Library and Develop Modules as well as its new characteristics.

The Lightroom 5 Interface.

  1. Familiarize yourself with Lightroom's interface.

    Take your time to familiarize yourself with the different modules available in Lightroom 5:

The Library Module.

  1. Create your own new catalog.

    In this class we'll explain one of the first things before starting to work with Lightroom, creating a new catalog.

  2. Import images from your SD card or Hard Drive.

    Once we've created our catalog, the next thing is to add images to it, in this class we'll explain how it's done.

  3. Create your own copyright information to apply to your pictures.

    Adding copyright information and keywords to our photographs will help us protect them if they go public and also sort them out easily, and it doesn't take more than 4 minutes.

  4. Familiarize yourself with the different view modes available in the Library Module.

    Start by familiarizing yourself with the grid & loupe view modes.

    The third view type available in the library module is the compare view mode, very useful when we have two similar pictures and want to decide which one to keep.

    The last view mode available in the library module is the survey view mode, quite useful when having lots of photographs of the same theme and want to decide which ones to keep.

  5. Apply stars, flags & labels - or any of them - to your pictures.

    As our picture catalog grows, it can be difficult to keep it organized. Lightroom offers us different ways for tagging our images and keep it well organized.

  6. Create your own collections and smart collections for your catalog.

    With the collections, Lightroom allows us to go a step further into organizing our picture library, letting us catalog similar themed images in an automatic way.

  7. Use the Library Module's search capabilities to try and find a specific picture.

    Once we've created our picture database, finding what we need can become a difficult task, but thanks to the search mode in the library module we'll be able to do so in a few seconds.

  8. And finally, export your pictures so everyone can see them!

    The last step when editing a photograph is usually exporting it. Lightroom 5 gives us many options to export our images any way we like.

The Develop Module.

  1. Familiarize yourself with the Develop Module's interface.

    Take your time to familiarize yourself with the Develop Module's interface of Lightroom 5.

  2. Give the Loupe and Before & After views a try.

    Start by familiarizing yourself with the loupe, and before & after view modes.

  3. Try out all the different tools included in the Develop Module.

    Unleash your creativity by trying out the different charactheristics of all the tools included in the Develop Module.
