1. Lightroom intro: Well, hello and welcome to the exciting world of Adobe Lightroom. My name is Roger hinterland and I'll be your instructor for this course. And I have been using Lightroom since way back when it first came out and are gonna software trainer and course were designer for the past 20 years. And I'm so excited that you decided to take me along. And you're Lightroom journeys and add a new term along the way. Feel free to ask me any questions that might come out. So note that this course is for the cloud version of Lightroom, which are Dolby simply now calls Adobe Lightroom. The results, so a desktop version of is called Adobe Lightroom classic. This course is only for the cloud version. If you're using Lightroom classic that you want to check out my Adobe Lightroom classic up to speed close. So what is light for more Lightroom is a powerful image, an image management program that is an all-in-one solution for your photograph. It needs from within Lightroom. You can manage your photos editor, photos, worker photos in Photoshop or other supported applications, and even share your photos because others. Lightroom strength lies in its ability to manage up high volume of images, making it an ideal application. Professional or hobbyists, photographer. Moreover, any changes that you make to a photo for within Lightroom, I saved two Lightroom's library rather than the image directly. And this is referred to as non-destructive editing visually. And any changes that you make, your photos are uploaded to the cloud so you can then access them from any of your devices. So in this class you'll learn how to get your images into Lightroom, Hadoop created, manage albums, and how to export your images to high-quality files that you can then show is others. You'll also learn how to rate, rig, filter and sort your images so that you can find the ones that you need.

Take a brief look at how the editor images on your phone or icon. Now as new features are already until I tonight will be updated as course, which elite changes or additions. So you might want to check back regularly. Now as we're using older versions of Lightroom and that's fun as a learner, features haven't changed all that much, though. You may find a few of their missing from your version of the application. And that's the case. You could just skip over those parts until you're ready to upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Lightroom. So are you ready? Let's get started. 2. Before You Begin: So if you'd like to work along with me as we progress through the course, you'll need to download the class lesson files. So in the projects and resources tab of this class, I've included a link to the file as well as instructions and how to set it up. What you want to do is click the link to download those Lesson files to your computer. Now the lesson files area compressed in zip format into one file. And with most modern computers, all you need to do is double-click on the file to expand its contents. The top folder is named "Lesson Files" and you want to copy this folder to computer's desktop as well as all the subfolders underneath. The subfolder should remain under that main Lesson Files folder, as we'll be bringing in some of the subfolders into Lightroom during this course. So do you have any questions at all about the lesson files, Please don't hesitate to let me know. And now let's dive into the class. 3. Getting Started: Welcome to the exciting world of Adobe Lightroom. Lightroom is a powerful image editing and Image Management Program that is an all-in-one solution for your photographic needs. From within Lightroom, you can manage your photos, edit your photos, work, unfrozen Photoshop or other supported applications, and share your photos with others. Lightroom's strength lies in its ability to manage a high volume of photos, making it an ideal application for the professional or hobbyist photographer. Moreover, any changes that you make to an image from within Lightroom are saved to Lightroom's catalog and notch to the image directly. And this is referred to as non-destructive editing. Now Lightroom has now been redesigned and rewritten as there are actually two versions of Lightroom. There's the standard version of the standard desktop version of Lightroom, which has now been renamed to Lightroom classic. And the cloud version of Lightroom, which was formally called Lightroom CC, but is now known simply as Lightroom. This class is for the cloud-based version of Lightroom, not the desktop version. So if you're using Adobe Lightroom Classic, then you'll want to check out our Lightroom classic up to speed course. So do Lightroom app, which we'll be working with in this course, retains the best features of Adobe Lightroom classic, such as Adobe suite of non-destructive editing tools. But it is also cloud native menu. You can edit photos at home or on that goal with everything being stored, including your abbots safely in the cloud. So in this way, you could work on your photos wherever you are, or on whatever device should like computer, iPhone, iPad, Android device, etc. You can even access your photos from someone else's computer, regardless of whether they have a Windows or a Mac. To do so, you launch a web browser, then navigate to Lightroom dot adobe.com. So before we get started, there are a few things you'll need to know and do first. Firstly, you'll need to be an Adobe Creative Cloud subscriber, and you can sign up for that from Adobe's website at Adobe.com. Now there are several different Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions, each offering different applications as well as cloud storage space. Many people start with our Lightroom subscription that includes one terabyte of cloud storage. It's available for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, tvOS, and the web. For this, your computer needs to be running Windows ten or later, or Mac 10.14.5 or later. You'll also need at least four gigabytes of RAM, which is the bare, bare minimum of eight gig is much better. Ideally, I'd recommend 16 gig if you can afford it. And if your machine is upgradable, you'll also need at least ten gigabytes of free hard-drive space. So even though all the images are stored on the cloud, the application installed locally and it uses your local hard drive space, has a cache, but as we've said, Lightroom doesn't take a whole lot of disk space given that most of the photos are stored on the cloud as their only downloaded as you need them. You can activate light trauma to desktop computers at any one time. If you have either the photography plan, which includes Lightroom and Photoshop, or the All Apps subscription, which includes all of the Adobe apps. Now of course, you also need an internet connection to use Adobe Lightroom cloud. Now you don't need to be connected all the time. Like some continues to work even when you go off line, but you will need to connect a briefly, I least once every 30 days to confirm or subscription. So you do have the option of postponement this for up to a 100 days, I do believe if needs be a w has also added in cutting edge image analysis, artificial intelligence allowing you to find photos by their content, even if you haven't madly out of that information and to the images metadata. And this is quite an impressive technology. Additionally, Adobe Lightroom is cloud native, which means that photos are stored safely on the cloud on Adobe's servers as are available on multiple devices, circular worker, two photos wherever you are. So if you're shooting images on your phone, it can later at a feminine or laptop or a tablet. And any changes you make will then be sent back to the Lightroom app on your phone and tablet. So how this all works is that Lightroom starts out by downloading a local copy of its database, not including the images. The apple then download small thumbnails. I've your images. If we've done view an image, a detail view, which is what the image fills up the entire work paid. So if I double-click this image here, you can see that the image enough fills up her entire work pain. Lightroom will then download what's called a smart preview, which is a better version than a thumbnail. So the next video we're gonna take a look at the Lightroom interface. 4. The Lightroom Interface: In this video, we're going to take a brief look at the Lightroom interface, and we're looking at the main screen and Lightroom writes Now, most likely it'll be spreading of lottery retyping them. My photos area, which you can display by clicking the little book icon over here in the left panel bar. So we can see that it's a divided into two sections on top is that my photos section? And this allows you to display your images at a variety of different ways. So the All Photos will display all of the photos into Lightroom catalog and bridges that you've recently added and the dates and times, the route ID. You can view your images by date, by people, as well as the images that you've deleted. Below here are albums and an album as a container specific to a particular event, such as our rope vacation or Smyth winning for instance. So you can see here that I have a few albums that I've already created. Landscapes, friends, outdoor parties, etc. And inside of an album you store individual images that are relevant to the theme of that album. So the other buttons here, the topmost button is the Import button. This is how you get your images into light limit, and we'll be working with data much more depth in the next video. So the whole budget theorem provides you a couple of different ways of accessing your images from recent edits, albums in parts. It also provides several gathered tutorials, as well as intraoperative edits with which a can work along. So if you want to improve your Lightroom's skills and follow along with professional photographers. You might want to spend some time with this. And if I click on the Learn tab, you can learn how to use many of the different features of Lightroom. So let's return to the My Photos area introduced. So again, you can either click the book icon or you can tap the P key on your keyboard. The bottom icon here in the left panel bar is the sharing icon. This displays any images or a albums that you've shared with others. And again, we'll be going over this in greater detail. So right now we're in detail view and can also despair because in GridView, so be tapped the escape key metrics back out of here. And now our images are in grid view and there are a couple of different grid viewers. You can switch to this photo grid on square grid. And again, there's detail view which where we would just add. And indeed to have you also have the film strip on the bottom. So you can quickly jump to an image by clicking here on the film strip and the rights parallel bar here we see some tools that we can use to edit on images. So topmost tool displays that are hides the edit pane. And the other pane contains several panels that you can use to adjust your images. So we have the light panel, color pal effects, detail, optics and geometry. And we're going to be delving into each of these in depth in upcoming videos. In addition to the edit panels, there are some other tools available. There's the crop tool, Healing Brush Tool, the brush tool. So linear gradients tool, and lastly the radial tool. And on the bottom of the right paddle board we have a couple of other icons. Via the activity icon, we have the keywords icon and then the in-flight kinda, which displays metadata about your images. And lastly up here we have this search box which provides us different ways of filtering and searching or images. And you can also access your Forza Lightroom via a web browser. To do so, let me switch to my web browser here. We type in HTTPS, Lightroom, Adobe.com. So we see that the interface is similar to the desktop version of Adobe Lightroom. We have the imports budget here that my photos there, and again, we have the albums and the different ways of viewing our images. We also have the sharing area and the home area where you can browse various tutorials. So it must be turned to the desktop version of Lightroom's from, and I quit my web browser. So that is it for a brief little tour of the Lightroom interface together we're gonna be working with all of these elements in much greater detail in upcoming videos. And in the next video we're going to look at how to get your images into Lightroom. 5. Importing Your Photos into Lightroom : If you're working under desktop, most of the time you'll be importing photos into Lightroom from either a memory card or from another folder on your computer. This could be from a DVD or a CD as well as a cloud drives such as Google Photos of Dropbox, iCloud or sink.com. Note however, that if you're importing your images from a cloud service, you'll first need to download the images as there is not a transfer tool to move your images from their service into Lightroom. So once you've identified all the photos or do you want to impart, you're ready to begin adding your images into Lightroom. So if we're falling line, we're going to import some images from the lesson files folder on our desktop. So they got started. We click the Add Photos icon and us the first icon in the left panel barrier, which displays the dialogue. So the first step in implementing your images is to choose the source location. That is to say you didn't tell Lightroom where your images are located. And again, this could be an SD memory card or location on your computer. If you're importing directly from an SD card or a mobile device, you would select that device from a pop-up. And right now I don't have any of those devices selected, but let me plug in my SD card here into my computer. The SD of a device nor shows in my list of locations. But now that I have that SD card connected to my computer, so now I'm going to click the Add Photos icon are connected, SD card shows up and a little menu here. So if I click that title display all of the images on that card that I could impart. But I don't wanna do that, so I'm just gonna click cancel out of here. So again, anybody important images from now less than Files folder on our desktops. So I click the plus again, and this time I'm going to click browse. And there's displays that a dialogue. So here's Crete may be different depending on your setup or the operating system you're using. So the first thing you want to do is navigate to the desktop folder under computers. So I'm going to scroll down until I see desktop, so I'll click on that. Now we're double-click the lesson files folder. And the foreign that contains the images that we wanted to import is the cabin vacation folder. So I'm just gonna select the folder and then click review for import. This displays a preview of all the images in the folder. Now by default, all of the images are selected and we can see we have 24 images that are selected. You can't however, eliminates specific images from the input. To do so, you click the small little box on the top left corner of the image to deselect it. So if I take this image of these selected, we can see the checkbox has been removed. Identity image was checkboxes de-selected will not be imported into Lightroom room. But he actually went to import this image. I'm gonna click edge to reselect it. Now if you want to do is select a bunch of check boxes at the same time, you can select a contiguous group of images by clicking the first image in the group, holding down the Shift key, the selected the last image in their group. And we can see a white box throws all of the images that are selected. In this case, Lightroom is selected all of the images, including the first image and the last image that we selected. If a lot of deselect on non-contiguous group of images, that is to say images that are not next to each other. You would click the first image, hold down the command key physical Mac or control key music windows, and then click the images that you want to select. Then I could click the checkbox at any of the images and removes a checkmark for all of the selected images. So that means that they would all be excluded from the XT cards, but I don't want to do that. So I'm gonna click the checkbox on any of the selected images and they're all once again marked for import. So I'm going to scroll down here. And I decided that I don't want to bring in this image of the Eagle. So I'm going to select it and then uncheck the little box in the upper left corner of the image. So obviously we have 23 photos that are selected. So again, that will not be imported into Lightroom or during the import process. Now on the top center of the screen here is the add to album drop-down list. An album as a container for a group of related images. And think of the old physical photo albums that may contain all of your images from a trip to Italy, for instance, or all of the images from a specific photo shoot, such as the Jones wedding. So from this list, we could choose the import of the images into an existing album that we've already created or create a new album. And the important the images into that new album. So right now we can see that the edge album drop-down list contains the word portfolio. And that is because I had selected the portfolio album before, is to get to the import process, such as the quick way of selecting a specific album before him putting your images. But again, we can choose any of them we want from the list. So I could have put these two outdoor if I wanted to. But what I want to do is important that all of these images into her new album. So that takes a drop-down list here. I might choose new. And I think I'll call this albums summer vacations, Summer dash vacation. So we'll type that in and then click Create, and we now have our new album because see that that is the default album and the album drop-down list. And the last step is to click the I 23 photos icon to complete the import process so that the images have been imported into Lightroom. And we now have a new album entitled summer vacation. The album that we created from the import screen. 6. Syncing Your Images: Sinking in Lightroom is all done in the background. So you don't need to do very much with it. You can't whoever check on your sync status by clicking the little cloud icon in the upper right corner of the window. So I'll click it. So in the bottom of the little window here we see the status. And if it reads symptom backed up like it does in this case, time means or your local cache is in sync with Adobe Cloud. If you're in the process of sinking, it will read, you guessed it, sinking. We can also see how much of our cloud storage is being used and which devices are being sick. So we can see that I am using 6.7 gig out of 250 gig. Now if you want to browse different planets, you can click the View plants link here. And that will launch the Adobe site in your web browser. Or you can browse the various plans available. Now if you ever need to pause sinking, such as if you're on an unreliable Wi-Fi connection, what you do is move your mouse pointer over the last item in the menu here. And the sinking line will read pause sinking. Then you click it once it changes into paws seguing now we can see and are sinking is paused to resume a second. I click see, sing puzzling and we're once again sinking. Now though I do will be stores all of your images in the cloud. You can't choose to store them locally as well. And personally, I recommend that you have at least one backup ever imaged on a local drive such as an external hard drive? I've never trusted online service with the only copy of my data. So to save a local copy of re-emerges Chu is Adobe Lightroom from the menu, then choose preferences. If you're using a Mac, if you're using Windows, you would choose at its preferences from the menu. And then we'll click on local storage here the left pane, and I will click the checkbox next to start copy of all originals at the specified location. So let me click the Browse button and then navigate to the location where we want to store a copy of our images. And ideally there's going to be on an external hard drive or even a hardware that's backed up to the cloud. My, my counselor live here. Know uncheck this. And the other option here is store copy of all smarts previous locally on your hard drive. And you may wish to do this as could really speed up performance and could also ensure a smooth workflow if we tend to work off line quite a bit. So again, you would take the checkbox texts for that option. The previous will be stored locally on your computer, but I'm not gonna do that right now, so I'm going to cancel out of here. Now I can also choose to store specific albums locally. And you might wanna do this if you have to work a dream images without having an internet connection. Additionally, loading locally stored images is much faster than downloading them from the cloud. So if you're working on editing our whole bunch of images at an album, you might want to consider downloading a locally as well. And that kids considerably speed up your workflow to star in our Bulkeley who ride to click it. Then choose store album locally for the contextual menu. And right now it's telling me that these ABA move require 1.6 gigabytes of storage space on my hard drive. And if I wanted to do that, I'm going to just click download. And it would download those images to the location that I specified in Adobe preferences. So remember we were in the preferences area right down here. It tells us the area or it's hard to store the originals. And again, we can click the Browse button and then change that location if we so choose. So if you're editing a group of images and an album, you might want to consider temporarily downloading it locally to help speed up your workflow. 7. 0201 Switching View Modes: Lightroom comes with several view modes allowing you to focus in on an image and different ways. A handy feature is the ability to enter full screen mode by using a single shortcut, F, tapping the F key on your keyboard hides all parallels and menus on enlarges the image so that it fills the entire screen. Once you're in full-screen mode, you can then zoom on a specific area of the image by clicking directly on the image. So if I wanna do modify the I of this duck, I can click in to zoom in. And then again to zoom out, somebody escape out of here. So let's begin by importing similar images into Lightroom. Some attacked the Add Photos icon here on the left panel Barb displays the dialogue we want to navigate to the lesson files folder on our desktop. So we'll click desktop in the left pane. Double-click the positive Files folder. We went to import the images in the critters folder. So just click once to select a folder, then choose review for him part. Since none of the images are selected into click the Select all checkbox. And what we want to do is import this into a new folder named animals, sort of takes the album drop-down lists as n choose new. And then we'll type in animals. And then click Create. And that about deserts are ready to implement images. So I'll click at eight photos. So the left pan number of the LMS arrow, we want to click the new album that we created animals. Now want to display this in GridView, some atop the G key on my keyboard. So if you're following along, you want to do that. So top the letter G, and that displays all the images in this album in GridView. So I'm gonna click the image of the cougar here. So that's a second image on my screen. Now let's tap the F key or keyboard. And this forces us to full-screen view. I can see that all the panels, menus are the Lightroom interface have now disappeared. Now let's tap the right arrow key on our keyboard of this displaces the next image in the folder, which is a tiger. And let's tap the radio key again. And this displays the image of the lion for next image in our folder. So now with the cursor click directly on the lion's head. That zooms in on the image. So if we were using any of light troops editing tools, this allows us to zoom in a little bit more of the image to work on it. Let's pick up the lion's head again, and this zooms us back out. And to exit full screen, we took the F key again. So let's do that. It can also tap the escape key on your keyboard to exit fullscreen view. Now you can always view the images in Lightroom from the my photos panel by clicking them. My photos icon is where you saw the previous video and that's this book icon here. Can also tap the peak key on your keyboard to show or hide this area. So I've ever working it all of a sudden Euro area disappeared. Just tap the peaky to bring us back. If you want to display all of the images that you've ever important into Lightroom. Click off photos, which is the first entry under the my photos area. Now I will display all the images that you've imported into Lightroom. So let's switch to the animals folder against We'll click era most of the albums area. So Lightroom allows you to display your images and a variety of different ways. And one of these views, which is the glue that we have on our screen, if the moment is a grid view and Greg view, images are displayed as small sub nails and rows and columns, as there are actually two different grid viewers that you can switch to. The leftmost icon down here in the center pane to space the images in a photo grid, which is a mosaic view in which there is no extra space between the images. So we see that the images brush up right against each other. So the next icon, or the center icon, displays images and square grid with a little bit of space between each image. Additionally, this view contains extra icons, providing information about the image over your boss partner over a subnet displays this extra information which you can then modify. We're going to be worried about that in a later video. Now you can switch between the two different grid views by just tapping the G key on your keyboard to toggle between them. So if I tap the GQ, my keyboard, we are in photo grad, square grid. Photo grid, square grid. Or again, you can click the appropriate icon in the left corner of the central window here to switch to the different views. So when you're a grid view, you click on an image to select it. Once your images selected, you can then edit into view a larger version of it or export it and shared with others. And we can tell what an image is selected because it's surrounded by a white border. So now if I click on the image of the lion, we can see that now the lion surrounded by that thin white border. And again, using the methods we have already discussed, you can select multiple adjacent or non adjacent images. So if I take the first image here holding the Shift key and select the image of the lion. All the images between and including the first and last images are selected. And to these selective group of images, click on any image that's not selected. Until now, only that image will be selected. To select a non-adjacent images. Select the first image. Hold on the command Cuvier's Mac or control key music written knows, and then click out of the other images that you wanted to select. It can also de-select Eddie selected images by choosing edit. Select a nun, and now there are no image is selected. A quick way to select all of the images and an album is by pressing the command to a keystroke combination of using a Mac or Control a if you're using Windows. Now I see that all of the images in this folder are selected. You could also choose Edit, Select All from the menu to deselect them again, we choose that it selected on or if you pressed a commodity keystroke combination of using a Mac or Control D If it was a Windows. So I'm going to press command to D because I'm using a Mac. And now none of the images are selected. When a grid view, you can also control the size of the images by dragging this little slider the lower right corner of the work plane. So let's click on the slider and drag to the left. Because CEDAW, the images are getting smaller and smaller, allowing us to fit more images on each role to increase the size of the images, we drag the slider to the right. So again, you could customize this a window anyway you want. Now another way of viewing your budget is in detail view. This provides a much larger view of the selected image. So I'm gonna click the image of the light here and then I'm going to click the detail view icon, which is the third icon in the bottom left corner of the work pain can also tap the dq dt or keyboard to display the image in detail view. So as we saw, G for GridView, D for detail view. Whenever you're in detail view the remaining images in the selected album or area are displayed below in the film strip. If we don't see that film strip taps the forward slash key on your keyboard to toggle that is plate of the film strip. So again, everyone who worked on the image without veer in the filmstrip can always just hide it by tapping that forward slash key. You can also display an image in detail view when you're in GridView by just double-clicking on neighbors. So if I double-click the image of the cougar and displays not image in detail view. Again, I can toggle the display of the filmstrip by top in the forward slash key. Hide, show, hide, show. Now, when you're a detail view can change the size of the image from the detail view options over here on the lower right corner of the work pain. So FET for say much to the work pay living a thin gray border around the image fill, fills the entire screen with the image. One-to-one displays the image of a 100%. We have a couple other icons here to this side. The fourth icon from the left is just another way of showing or hiding the film strip. The last icon displays the original image before and after the edits. You can also use a shortcut key command or control equal. Move left or right through the three zoom levels and tuples left, a Topsy command or control minus c0. And that moves lung zoom level to the left. And I want to display redisplayed my filmstrip. You're so tough the forward slash key. So yeah, those are the different view modes in light room. So again, G for grid view of them here again, you can top the G key to toggle back and forth between photo grid of square grid and then d for detail view. 8. Sorting Images: The rightmost icon in the bottom left corner of the center window here allows you to change the sort order of the images in the current folder or area. What's nice about changing the sort order is that it's automatically saved, which means that the images will be sorted the same way the next time you open the album. Additionally, sort order is albums Pacific, meaning that you can have different sort orders for different albums. So for instance, I could start my animals folder by filename and my landscapes folder by capture date. So if you're following along, let's click the summer vacation album here in the left pane. And we'll click the sort order button again, which is not forth icon on the bottom left corner of this center pane. So we see that because sorted album in the following ways by capture date, which sorts the photos by captured Date and Time. Import date, which sorts their photos based on when do out of them into Lightroom. Modified date which sorts the images based on whether you've changed their metadata or edited them in any way. File named sorts through images alphabetically based on their filename. Star rating sorts the images based on their star rating, which is from 0 to five. And finally, we have custom order, which displays the photos at a mandrel sort order. So if I chose customer order here, I can just simply drag an image I've done to change the location of it within the album. So I've taken this image here, nor SWF, a little blue bar that lets us know the location of the image. If we were to really release the mouse button. So if I wanted to just move it to the first place in the album or drag event to the blue bar, Some of the upper left corner and then release the mouse button. But I would assert this album by caps today. So I'll take the icon again and then choose captured it from the menu. You could also reverse the sort order by clicking the last option in the menu, you reverse order. So if I click at the Arabs had obvious sorted in reverse order from newest to oldest rather than oldest to newest. If I click reverse order again to now sorted from oldest to newest. And this works as well as when we're in detail views. So let's click the image of the duck and then it'll tap the dq by keyboard. Let's click the Sort daughter icon. And I want to sort these by filename. So I'll click file name and the images in the film strip or no, sorted alphabetically by filename. Again, we can reverse the order. So dollar sorted from Z to a rather than a to Z. But I think I want to solve my filmstrip abide captured age so as to save the date of the images were taken. So click the icon again. I will choose captured it for the pop-up menu. So that is how to search your images both in a grid view and in detail view. 9. Viewing Photos by Date: Lightroom allows you to narrow down the images that are displayed by date, by day, months, or year. This comes in handy if you know the general or even specific date on a photo was taken. So the desktop version of Lightroom below the all photos area, there are a couple of date options, and the first is recently added. And this displays all of the photos added during your five most recent imports. So if I click on the words recently added, we see we have five entries here 45 minutes ago. This contains a recent import that we did in one of the course videos an hour ago that displays the first impart though we did together in this course. And then we have other imports as well. Below the recently added area is the by date option. And this groups your photos by the date that they were captured. To expand this section, click on the words by date or a click of the left pointing disclosure triangle. This mistake is all of the dates by year, That is to say all of the years in which the photos that we have imported to Lightroom or taken. We can then drill down even further to the month and day by clicking on the disclosure triangle and then drilling down to the month and day to display photos from multiple dates at once. For example, if you want to vacation, you took photos of multiple days and you want to view them all in one window, click on one date. So for example, was the January refers to hold the control key for using Windows or command key music back then select any other dates. So you want to display Saddam displaying images from both January first and January second. I could also select a year. Then the displays all images from the year of 2019. And in addition to the dates for that, I have selected someone back over here. So I'm gonna click on the words by date to clap such panel. And if you're following along and let's click this summer vacation album. Now if you're already viewing an image and you want to see other photos that you took of the same date. Or you need to do is right-click the image and choose show photos from same date. This will display all of the images that we took on that date. So yeah, very handy feature in Lightroom. And that is how to view images by date. 11. Renaming Albums: You can easily change the name of your albums after you've created them and populating them with images. To do so, you right-click to them with the album in the album is pane here. Then choose Rename album from the contextual menu, we can see that the title of the album is now highlighted, allowing us to simply type in the new name for the album. And I'm going to escape out of here and I actually want to bring in some more images. I'm going to import some or images into Lightroom. So for following along, let's click the Add Photos I economists the first icon here in the left panel bar. To give me what a navigates to lessen files folder on our desktop. So we'll choose desktop, double-click lesson files and the images that we wanted to bring in our in the Florida 2013 folder. So I'm gonna select that folder and then click review for import. And then when I bring in all of these images, but I want to bring them into a new folder. So I'm going to click the Add To album drop-down list. Choose new, and we'll name the album Florida. Then click the Create. And I want to ensure that all the images are selected. And also Lightroom did not select any of the images is time. So I want to click the Select All box to select all of the images. And again, if I didn't want to bring into a specific image, I could just uncheck the box to de-select it. But I want to import all of these phenomena. Click the add nine photos button. Now have a new folder called Florida. So now I've changed my mind and decided that I wanted to rename this Florida album to something else. So I'm going to right-click it and then choose Rename album from the contextual menu. And I think I want to name this Florida 2014 was our lowercase fluoresce from a type in Florida. Dash 2014. And then all tap the Enter or Return key on my keyboard. And the album has now been renamed. Happy, I want to rename this my friends album to a wine if I want all my albums to be lowercase. So I'm gonna right-click friends. She was really an album. And I'm gonna type in a lowercase f. Same as landscapes. Really amalgam, lowercase L, outdoor. Rename album, lower-case, o, et cetera. Oh, it's got our ducks album, so we'll rename that as well. So though is how to rename an album in Lightroom. 12. Creating Folders: You can further organize your albums by placing them into folders. Folders are basically a container for your albums, which help you to find the album was a to want quickly. This could come in especially handy if you have a lot of albums in light room. And it's becoming increasingly difficult for you to find the ones that you want. So folders, for instance, you could have a folder named family. Will you add all of your family related albums? Or maybe you have a folder called vacations in which you added album was for all of your different vacations. Some people create folders by years, and this can be especially helpful if you have a lot of albums as it can make your window up here less cluttered. So if you're a wedding photographer, for instance, you might have a folder that contains all of your wedding albums for 2019 and another folder named 20-20 for all you're really albums for the year 2020. You create a folder by kick the little plus button, right? We did the last video, but this time you choose create folder and then they give the folder a name. So if a falling along, let's do that. So we'll, we'll click the plus button create folder. And I think one day in this class stuff. And then we click Create. So you can tell the difference between an album and a fuller is because our folder has this little disclosure triangle. And once you click the disclosure toggling, it will display all the albums in that folder. But in our case we don't have any yet, so let's add some in. So I'm gonna add my Animals album to this folder. So I'll click via Avogadro's album and then drag it on to my mouse cursors over the words in class stuff and then I release my mouse button. So now because he's of the Animals album now resides in the class stuff folder. So again, I can click the disclosure triangle to compress it. And again to expand it. Think obvious summer vacation album mentioned this as well. So click the summer vacation elem and drag it to the class stuff folder. So now both of those albums are in that folder. If you want, you can also nest your folders. For instance, you might have a folder called weddings and then under that, a subfolder called 20-20. And under that you would include all of the albums for any weddings shoots taken during that year to Nesta folder, you select the main folder, then click the plus symbol, and then she was create folder and the new folder will be created under that main folder. You can also drag an existing folder on top of another folder. And then the folder that you drag will then be a subfolder under the main folder. To create a new top-level folder, you will select an album, not a folder, and then click the plus button and then choose create folder. If you had a phone is selected and I created a new flow, that folder would be placed as a subfolder underneath the top level folder you have selected. Let's create a new top-level folders. So you're going to click on the wedding. So Folder data subfolder will take the plus symbol and choose create folder, and we'll type in 2020. So now we can see that a new folder that we created resides underneath the weddings folder as a subfolder. He'd also dreg one folder on top of another touted as a subfolder. So let me click it album here, and let me create a new folder called 2019. And I'll click Create. So now I can just drink the 2019 folder over the weddings folder that moves that folder into my top level weddings folder. So now I have two subfolders underneath weddings. Alright, if we decide that you've placed a folder inside another folder by mistake or you ones that folder to be its own top-level folder. You can just click it and drag it out of the folder until you see that blue bar up here on the left side of the pane to release the mouse button. And that folder has now been added as a top-level folder under the albums area. So to delete a folder, you right-click the folder and then choose delete folder. So this tells me that two folders will be deleted because there is a subfolder this folder as well. It'd be a little bit careful with deleting folders because if you delete a folder, all of the albums in that folder will be deleted as well. Of the images will be deleted. They'll still be available in the all photos area about your albums will be gone. So you wanna delete a fully what I'm sure you move the albums out of the folder before deleting the folder. So I'm going to delete these folders, are gonna click delete two folders and my wedding followers are gone. And I think I wanted to leave the 2019 folder, so I'll remove that one as well and delete folder. And so if you end up with a lot of albums in Lightroom that he may want to consider creating folders to help better organized them. 13. Deleting Photos: What do we moving images from light room. You can choose to remove photos from either the current album were stacked only or completely delete it from Lightroom. And we kinda work with this a little bit in a prior video. So if you remove a photo from the current album or stock, it's still remain in the all photos area on top of the my photos pain as well as in the BI data area. It just will no longer display in that album. If however you choose the delete option, the photo will be removed completely from Lightroom. That is to say it will be removed from Oliver sinks devices as well. But don't worry too much if you accidentally delete a photo by mistake, it will remain in Lightroom is deleted trash bin for 60 days. If you empty the trash bin, however, the drought a luck. So to delete an image in Lightroom, you select the image that you want to remove. Right-click, then choose delete photo. So notice we have two options or delete one photo or do remove one photo from album. So this bolt here, this option only removed from the album, whereas this option will completely remove it from Lightroom. Can also choose Edit, delete one photo from the menu to delete an image using your keyboard, press the altar backspace keystroke combination if using Windows or option backspace if you're using a Mac. So I'm going to cancel out of here and let's click the floor and our 2014 folder. And I want to remove this locks the hace poster completely from Lightroom. So I'm going to right-click it and choose delete one photo. So we do get a warning message. Are you sure you want to delete this photo from your Lightroom photos, your albums, and shares. It does tell us that deleted photos can be restored for 60 days and after 60 days for as a permanently deleted. So our Mexicans elite that removes that photo from Lightroom. Sorry, deleted the photo and now decide oh, I didn't want to delete that after all when I changed my mind. So click the deleted items folder, and then most recently deleted items on the top of the work area. So to start images selected, right-click, and then choose restore photo that the image has now been removed out of the deleted area and back into the off photos area of Lightroom. Notice either by clicking on the Florida 2014 folder, that image has now been restored. So if you've deleted a whole bunch of images or don't want to wait the 60 days for them to be removed. I want to remove them immediately. If you do so by right-clicking on the word deleted and then choose permanently delete all that, will instantly remove all images from the deleted area and remove them permanently from Lightroom. So that is how to delete images in Lightroom. 14. Grouping Photos using Stacks: A handy feature in Lightroom is the ability to group multiple images into a stack. Stacking allows you to group similar photos and display them as a single photo in GridView, so far as to say one thumbnail will represent multiple images. The images are just nested until one image. Now note that the grouping is currently only available on the Windows or Mac apps, the desktop apps, not the mobile apps. So why might you want to group images into a stack? Well, you might want to do is so if you have several identical bracketed images shot at different exposures, such as we're creating HDR images or perhaps through them or images that you want to use for a panorama. I will also grouped together different edited versions of this same image, for instance. And the images that you edited and Photoshop will be saved with the.tiff extension. So I will group those along with their accompanying raw JPEG version of the image together by grouping them as a single image in your grid. It helps to keep her screen more tidy. So to stock photos, you select the images that you'll want to start together. Then right-click, then choose grouper distant from the contextual menu, we see that you can also press the command G keystroke combination if you're using a Mac or Control G if using Windows. So let's add some images into a stocks. So I'm gonna choose Edit, Select nine to make sure that I have no image is selected. So what I wanted to do was out all images of birds into a stock. And I have these three images are birds here from a Select the first image, I hold up my shift key and the selector last image, and thus selects all adjacent images, including the first to the last image. And I'm going to right-click and choose Group into stack. So now those three images are nested under one image and we see that it'll stock icon here in the upper right corner of the subnet. And that tells us how many images are in that staff. I took expand your stock, you just click a little stuck icon and the rest of the images, all the images that make up this stuck display. And there's special little film strip on the bottom of the screen. I can select the individual images in that stuff and to collapse a stuck. Once again, we're just ticked the little X in the upper right corner of the filmstrip and that collapses the stack. Now if I want to remove a photo from a stack, we just clicked the stock icon and then choose the photos that you ought to remove. So let's say I wanted to remove this image from the stack. I would right-click it and choose remove one photo from Stuck. Or it could also just simply select the image and then tap the backspace key at a keyboard, if you're using Windows or the delete key on your keyboard, if you're using Mac and then he gets a message you want to remove on photo from the stack. But I don't want to remove this image. Somebody click cancel. So we notice that the first image of the step is set as the subnet cover photo. But if one of you choose a different images, the cover baby, this image here, I selected the filmstrip, right-click it, and then choose set a stack cover. Missy. Now the cover has been changed to reflect the new image. So let's recompress. The stacks are getting clicks, a little X and a film strip, or it can tap the escape key on your keyboard and that will do it as well. Now if you decide that you're no longer ones, the images to be stacked and want to chase them back into separate photos. You right-click the stack image and then choose Ungroup stuck from the contextual menu. And you can also group and ungroup images from the menu as well, choosing u by, by choosing edit stacks. And here we see the opposite is ungrouped stack. We can also group images into stock. So if I selected these images here and Charles edit to stocks than the option group into stack is now available. But I went to Ungroup this taxa, right-click it and then choose Ungroup stock from the contextual menu. You get a message asking us if we really wanted to ungroup them and we do. So I'm gonna click Ungroup and their images are no longer grouped into a stack. So that is working with stacks in Lightroom. 15. Rating your Photos: Once you've imported your images into Lightroom, you'll want to begin going through them and marking them in various ways so you quickly find the begin later run. Some photographers like to use Lightroom's star rating system whose ranges from 0 to five stars. Such a system can be helpful when quickly going through your images and deciding which ones to keep, which was to print or which wants to post the social media. The meaning of each star really will depend on your own personal workflow. Now there are several ways that you can apply a star rating 20 image from the menu, choose photo and then select the number of stars you want to apply. One stars who 5-stars. So I have this image of the cougars slug producer who wanted to apply a three-star ratings of this, I would choose three starts from the menu. And notice that the star icon underneath the image ad on the toolbar at the bottom of our screen, both reflect the reading of the image. You can also use the number keys on your keyboard to set a rating. So if one of the reads as image 5-stars or protected number five on my keyboard. And we can see that it has now been adjusted to five-stars, two stars tube's a number tool to completely remove a star rating for the image. Tap the 0 key that removes all ratings from that photo. Now notice that as I move my mouse cursor over the image, the stars I, Katia appears and I can click the number of stars on either the star icon here or the star icon on the toolbar. So if I wanted to read this forest are in there, would click the fourth star from the left. And we can see that the red has been applied to the image. If you wanted to change this to one star, where to click the leftmost star on the stars icon. And we've now set that image as a one-star rating. But I want to remove the ratings from his image from a tap to 0 key on my keyboard. So let's work through this together a little bit. So we're going to click the Animals album in the left pane here. And if you don't see the Animals album that we want to expand your class stuff folder. So clicks the phrase party disclosure target for display all of the albums in that folder. And we want to ensure that worries square grid view. So tempt the G key on your keyboard until your images are laid out in rows and columns with a little bit of space between each image slot we wanna sort or images by capture dates or click the Sort icon on the bottom of the screen and choose captured it that way your screen will look like mine. So let's click on the first photo of the album, which is the image of the red squirrel. Then we're tempted number four of my keyboard. This assigns the image for stars, and we can see the star ready below the image and on our toolbar. So don't want to read the image of the dog from Eclipse, the image of the dog, and will click the four-star from the left. That rates study image four-stars. Now I have another image of a dog and that was in that Florida 2014 folder. So let's click that Florida 2014 folder. And I'm gonna select the image of the white to dark. And I'm going to read this dog 5-stars. So I'll tap the number five on our keyboard. So I think I'm gonna add this photo to my animals albums. So I'm going to click the image and then drag it to animals and release my mouse button. And now the image exists in both places, but I really don't want it in this album anymore, so, but right-click it and choose remove one photo from album, and then click Remove on photo. But if I click on my Animals album, we can see that the dog is now in this L-dopa and they had maintained its five-star rating. So that is reading your images in Lightroom. 16. Flagging Photos: Many photographers prefer to keep the rating system simple, and rather than using a star rating, they use flags instead. Now there are three options when using a flag system, flagged, unflagging, or rejected. You might want to flag the images. He wished to keep them later on, remove any images that are inflamed. Or perhaps you want to flag owning those images or do you want to print or export to flag an image? You select the image and then tap the Z key on your keyboard. Can also write ticket image, printer set flag, then choose, pick four flag. So if wanted to frame the image of the DOD here, could right-click it, points to a set flag, then choose pick. See the little flag icon appear of the lower left corner of the image thumbnail, and also the flag icon on the toolbar is now lift. You can also flag an image just by moving your mouse pointer over the flag icon on the toolbar. And then once it turns white, click it that as a flag to that image to remove a flakes lets the image the taps a UK key on your keyboard. We can also select the image, shows photo, and then click on flagged from the menu. We see that we can also use the keyboard shortcut z to flag you to unflipped. Think of you for unpick some issues unframed era that unfolds the image of the dog. So if you're following along, let's click through your first image here of the red squirrel. I'm gonna tap the number 0, and if you remember 0 or remove all stars from the image. So now I'm going to tap the Z key on my keyboard display the image we see the flag icon appear or the lower left corner of the thumbnail or again, it is also selected Toolbar. Now let's press the right arrow key or key borderline moves to the image of the cougar, will atop the Z key again, the flow existed which is well, not well tough the right arrow key again. And this time, let's move most precursor over the image, though let's click the little flag icon. There's a leftmost icon underneath. Some nails will select that, and now the image is flagged. To unfold the image, we can just click the icon again to unfamiliar to already could also press you for unpick on your keyboard. Now another flagging option that works in conjunction with flagging is rejecting. Often when going through your photos, you might want to flag those photos. You want to keep reject to those who wish to delete. Then you can go through the keepers more leisurely lid or run to apply star ratings to them if you so choose. So to reject a photo, you tap the X key on your keyboard. So whenever they reject this image of the squirrel, I were tough the X key know stuff. The flake is now removed and the rejection flag is selected instead to remove a rejected flag top the yuki and of the image is completely on flagged. That is to say, no flags are applied to the image. Fear also choose photo, reject for the menu, or click the reject icon either on the toolbar or underneath the image. I want to remove the reject flags of attempts a UK eat my keyboard. So for falling alignments clicks the summer vacation album and the album was panel here. And here we can see all of the images in that album. But what I wanted to do is reject the third image from the left here. So I'm gonna select it and then tap the X key on my keyboard. And now we see that Ads dot as the reject flag to that image. And I'm going to reject the image of the bridges. Well, I don't really want this one, so I'm gonna select that and then touch the keyboard. You could also reject multiple images are laws by just simply selecting them. Sorry, you press the command key if you're using a Mac or Control key of using windows, selecting all the images that you want to reject. Then Topsy executed your keyboard because c reject flag has now been applied to all of those images. But I don't want to reject these are Minitab you to unpick. So now let's display the photos and the animals folder. So I'm going to click animals in the left pane, some slides, all the images in this album. So click on the first image, hello, my shift key, and then select the last image in the album dislikes all images and The Animals album. But I don't want the image of the white dog to be selected. Sorts of de-select enable you hold the command key if you're using a Mac or Control key for using Windows and select the image or you want to deselect. So I'll take advantage of the way dogs see that the white border has been removed from that image. So all of the images in this album I selected with the exception of the y two dots. And what I wanted to do was flag every photo in this album, with the exception of the white dog small tap the Z key on my keyboard, you'll see that the white flag in which hasn't been applied to all of these photos. And I think I want to export all of these images to share with others. So in my system, I use a five-star rating to indicate those images that are to be exploited. So I'll tap the number five on my keyboard. See that in addition to the flag, the five-star really has also been added to those images. Saddam, I'm going to select the image of the white dog. And what this does is de-select all the other images in the folder and select only the image of the way Doug and I want to apply a four-star rating this imagery, which helps the number four on my keyboard. But on second thought, I think I want this to be a three-star image. So I'm going to click the third start from the left on my toolbar here. And again, you could also have tapped the three key on your keyboard. So that is working with flags in Lightroom. 17. Deleting Rejected Photos: In the previous video, we learned the oppression the X key on your keyboard sets the flag status of an image I was rejected. There's usually indicates that these are images that are out of focus, overexposed, or otherwise not good enough to keep. Once you flagged all you rejected photos, you'll then want to delete them from Lightroom. But first you need to select the album or albums that contain the images that you want to delete. And many people forget this step. But when you filter images by the rejected flag, it only applies to the album that you currently have selected. If you want to remove rejected images from all of the elbows in Lightroom, you would click All Photos, Ananda, my photos pay in here and then delete the rejected photos. But in my case, I only wanted to remove the rejected images from the suburb vacation album. So I will select that. And next you click the refined view icon, which has a little funnel icon to the right of the search box. Should we click that and then click the rejected flag. So what that does is hides everything except for those images that we rejected. If we don't see any images, that means that you have not set any images as rejected in the current folder you have selected. So once we fills a very able just by those that would be rejected if you choose Edit, Select All from the menu, where we can also press the Command or Control a keystroke combination, and then choose edit, delete two photos. So click that and you get the warning message telling us that we're bought, delete two photos from Lightroom and from all of our six devices. And again, we can restore them for up to 60 days, but we do want to delete them, so we'll select the delete button and wash the images are gone. For Ganesha was gonna backed by Google or YouTube deleted folder, selecting the images, right clicking and then choose restore to photos. And now the images are back in our summer vacation album. That is how to delete your rejected photos in Lightroom. 18. Adding Keywords: And the right panel bar is the key wording panel from where you can add descriptive words to images. And that's his icon right over here, it looks like a little tag. Keywords allow you to find your photos quickly, as well as to help you easily filter them displaying only the ones that you're looking for to what a new keyword to a selected image, you click the keywords icon and then your type or keyword directly into the ADT keyword textbox on top of the panel here. Once you've done that, you tough return or enter to add the keyword to the image of this confirms the entry. Now if your wish to apply this same keyword to multiple images, selected desired images of then type in or click the keywords that you want to add. If we wish to apply the same keyword to multiple images, selector desired images, and then type in the keyword, in the keyword field they want to add to the images and they'll then be applied to all of us selected images. So that's payroll with us a little bit. So I'm gonna tap the peak here, my keyword to display the my photos area. And we're going to click the Animals album. And we want to apply some keywords to his image of the red squirrels, or we're going to select that image. And then the right peribulbar, we'll click the keyword icon again. Now see I kinda resembles a Tae. There's the Centre icon in this row of three icons on the bottom right corner of my screen. Next will kick in the keywords box. I will type in red squirrel and then tap the return or enter key on my keyboard. And we can see that our keyword has now been added to that image. If we wanted to remove the keyword from an image that can move my mouse cursor over V keyword, you see that a red light is now through it. And if I click it and I'll remove that keyword from the image. But I want to do that from an ad that Beck is what typewriter? Red squirrel. And let's add another. So with my cursor inside of the add keyword box and MA typers squirrel, the tap Enter. I'll type in rodent and tap Enter. And I think that about does it for this image. Next, let's click the image of the white dog and it says some keywords to this image. But I think I want to add keywords to the brown dog as well. So again, it's like multiple images. You would hold on your control key of using Windows or command key of using MAC, then select the additional images. So I'm going to hold down my command key because I'm using a Mac. And then I'm going to click the image of the brown dog. Next I'll click on the add keyword box and type in dog. The more taboo Turner Enter to confirm the entry, we can see that that keyword has now been applied to both of those selected images. So what I wanted to do Dao is a part of same keyword to every image in this album. So the first thing we need to do is de-selected he selected images. So I'm gonna choose at it. So let's none. And how much was added again, this temple choose, Select All. And notice we could also press a command to a keystroke combination if you're using a Mac or Control a if using Windows, that selects all of the images in the album, I'm gonna click in the keywords box. And I'm gonna type in animals. And most of them as I begin to type, existing keywords will pop up in the box below, matching that which I've typed. So they could just chop my Down Arrow keys like the animals do the top enter, said go out another word or think of it. I add critters to all of these images. So I'll type in critters and then tap returned or enter. So now let's add some keywords to the images in her summer vacation album. So let's click out of the keywords box to de-select it. They will tap pee on our keyboard to switch to my photos area. I'll click the summer vacation album. And I'm going to click the image of the duck. So I'm going to scroll down until I see the document shown here it is, so I'll select it. Click the keywords icon in the right panel bar. I'm going to click in the keywords box, would type in C, R. And we can see critters pops up, so metabolite down arrow key until critters is selected and then tapping a term next, thereby type it in and I'll tap my down arrow key until animals is selected and then temperature to renter on a keyboard. So once you've added keywords toward him, it's all of the key words that are applied to that photo will display underneath the add keyword box. And again, to remove a keyword from an image, you just move your mouse pointer over the keyword until it turns red and then click it. So that is our key words to photos in Lightroom. 19. Sorting Images: Lightroom offers a couple of different ways that you can sort your images. And we've already worked with this a little bit in previous videos. You can quickly arranger photos using the sort icon in the toolbar. And that's his icon right down here. And once I click it, because see the different ways that because sort or images captured it in part day to modify date, filename, star waiting and custom order. And right now we see the custom order was selected. And as we have mentioned in a previous freedom with custom order, or you can, or you need to do is just drag an image and I reposition anywhere you like. And the blue bar lets us know whether the image will be once we release her mouse button, I'm just gonna drop it right here. So let's sort the images that are Animals album. So let's kick animals in the left pane here. I will take the sort icon to display this sort menu. And let's sort this by the date the image was taken to captured it. So click captured it from the sort of menu. Now let's sort the images by ratings and Maclean's Allosauridae kinda again, and we'll choose star rating. You can see that the images adjusted from lowest to highest. So let's say I gave by the red square of two stars instead of five. So I think there are two stars here because see Dow, red scroll is the first image at our list here. So we have red squirrel, two stars, three stars, and the rest of our five-star images. And if you want to change the sort order from descending to us sending or vice versa. Again, click the storage icon, then click reverse order on the bottom of the menu. So now we're sorting from highest to lowest or in descending order. So let's sort of as they get an awesome the order. So I'll take the storage icon, click reverse order. And our sort of get us suddenly order from lowest to highest. So let's do another sort, but this temple of sorts by filename. So I'm gonna click the icon again and we'll choose file ID from the menu. Now it's sorted in ascending order by filename. So yes, the sword, I kinda very quick way to search for images in a variety of different ways. 20. Using Face Detection: I had the future in Lightroom is the ability to find and recognize people. For instance, say to index all of the faces in your photos are l1 and we'll search for all your photos for things that resemble faces and then display them in people view which you can access by clicking people. And that my phone was area. So I'll take people here and we can see a face of all the people that Lightroom identified. So to name a person, you click on the thumbnail and up here there's this AVD Name section, and this is where we type in the name of the person. So I'm gonna type in my care and then tap return or enter. Now notice that we also have seven photos that Lightroom of things might be might, but he's unsure and this indeed is the same person. So I'm gonna click yes, merge and all the photos reverse together. And these are all the images of that Lightroom has identified as containing the person Mike. Now I can change the thumbnail image, that is to say that picture that displays for the person's thumbnail by selecting the image in the grid view here. So let's say a lot of do switch it to this one. We then click the little dot icon in the upper-right corner of our window here, then choose set as cover photo star. If you go back to the people section by clicking the little enough pointing arrow up here, you can see that our cover image has now been changed. There is even a legible ofs WHO identify the monuments from Mount Rushmore as containing people. It recognizes the face is as people, but I really don't want them to display it my people areas. So what I need to do then is to hide them. So let's click on the image of our George Washington here will be again, click the three dots and then choose Hide person stuff. We go back to the People area, George's gun. Let's do the same thing for the rest of the monuments. So I'll do Hyde person, callback, Hyde person and hide person. So I'm album here called Friends of which I've included some stock images, but notice the Lightroom did not recognize them as people. So if this hop is that if you have images of people that Lightroom does not recognize, you could add them in manually. To do so, you switch the album that contains the images, select the image of the persons. So I'm going to select the two images of this young man here. Then we click the keyword icon. I'm up on top here we see a People section. Here we could add the name of the person. So let's click on the Add day email. And I'm gonna type in Scott, that type return. And I'll select the images of this young man here. So I select the first air bridge, hold up my shift key step to the next image, and we'll type in David, the tab return. So let's tap the PQ to this blade, my photos area, and then it will take people. And we can now see the images that are renamed are now displayed in this area. So if you have a whole bunch of different people in your Lightroom library, you can sort the people by. Once again, click is a little dot icon in the upper right corner of the image. Sort by firstName, lastName, or count, that is to say the number of images for each person. So that is using the people feature in Lightroom and, and very offered via technology hero, they'll facial recognition technology is quite impressive. 21. Filtering by Flag, &Rating and More: On top of your screen here in the right pane is the refined view icon, and that's this little icon that resembles off funnel. What this does is allows you to quickly filter the disfavor images by rating flags, metadata, such as camera make and model, our keywords, location and more. To do so you click the little I kinda went sure do the filter bar displays right underneath the search box. So from here I can then display images using a combination of metadata, people, Stars, and plays to filter by star array that you click the number of stars by which you want to filter the display. So if you're following along and let's click on their class stuff folder that will display all of the images in every album in that folder, which in this case are the animals that summer vacation albums. And the first thing we about to do is set our comparison operator. And it has this little icon of a terror strike down. We can see it's really greater than or equal to. To change it, we click it. Now, it's equal to, again, less than or equal to. So I want to display all images that contains three or more stars. So I'll click the comparison operator until i is greater than or equal to, and then it clicks to third star from the left. And now all images that are greater or equal to three stars will display. And it turns out the forest stories, they were just picked the first Terrier. And we can see that the image of the way dogs, the one that had three stars applied to it, no longer displays and wanted to see only images that have three stars of a clique, that comparison operator torque equal to as displayed. Then click three stars. Now we see we have one image with three-star is applied. Notice now once I have these filters, they appear in the search box here. And we can quickly remove our filter from our display by just clicking the little x. And that removes the filter from that search. And you can also do the same thing with flanked on flagged or rejected. We want to display only images that were flagged there could, I would click the flag icon. And now you'll only see flagged images. And to remove that filter, but just click the flag, I kind of get our back to normal. The center icon is everything that is inflamed. I click that all images without a flag are displayed. And we'll click it again to remove it. And then the last icon here is rejected. So we can see that I have two images that I have set as rejected. And that's a good way to find out, find the images that you've rejected and then delete them if you so choose. And again to remove a filter you just click. We also have a type of dialogue and here filters are removed. We also have the type menu here which contains a couple of options. Image a panorama. So we have one panorama and then the rest are images. And again, I'll click the X to remove those searches from our filter. We see that we also have the keyword option on top here. And this allows us to filter even further by one or more key words. So you click the keyword drop down list. I choose all of the keywords by which you wanted to filter. Because see that once I sucked a key word, a little check mark displays next to it, either just know that we are filtering by that keyword. And again, I can add a star rating to filter even further. So let's say I wanted to see all images with these keywords that are for more stars. So we have greater or equal to. And then we'll click four-stars, have filters even further. And again, we can filter even further by choosing one of the flags up here. So if I wanted to choose a rejected, we see we have no images that are rejected with those keywords and star rating. So I'm gonna remove all these filters. I'm gonna click the x. This will remove all of the filters in the search box. Now we're back to display all of the images in our folder. Here also, there were no real by choosing a specific camera from the list right now because see that I have two cameras, have these images in this folder were taken with the iconic of Minolta, either the Nikon D 5100. So if I only wanted to see images taken with the Nikon, I would choose that from the list that film was at the, by that. And of course, we can again filter by keyword, flags, stars, et cetera, a sofa down as much as we want. So let's remove this filter and will click the X here. We see other options here, location as well. So we can see that the image that we've added, the GPS data, location information displays them drop-down list here, six towns, etc. And also people is grayed out. And that's because in this folder there are no people. But if I clicked on that Friends album, now the people option is available. So if I click on the drop down list here and choose Jeff, only images of this person are displayed. Again, we'll choose Scott. And now both Jeff and Scott are displayed. So yes, Nigeria has a very powerful filtering option, which allows you to quickly display only those images that you want. 22. Searching for Images: Lightroom's search feature is both flexible and powerful in that you can search for photos by key words, filename, caption, metadata ranking, ImageContent, rating, and flag status, and more added. This is all accomplished from the search bar on top of your screen. Those rate up here, which is located to the left of the refined view icon, which we worked with in the previous video. So you can perform a basic search by typing in the search term that you want to find. And this could be a keyword title or caption. Additionally, Adobe sensei, which is Adobe's AI engine, allows you to even search that content of your images. So you can type in terms such as dog or duck water and do more treatment type and colors and locations. So it's really, truly impressive how well this works. So let's play around with the search a bit. So first I'm gonna take all photos here in the my photos area. This despise every single photo that we have in Lightroom. So let's click it a search box. I'm going to type in squirrel. Then we tell them return or enter key on our keyboard. And Lightroom then filters are images only by those that contain a squirrel. So let's turn discernment tub the backspace key on my keyboard and I'm going to type in red squirrel is time. And then tap return or enter into here only images of the red scroll up here, although this one really isn't a red squirrel. So let's change this over top of the backspace key on my keyboard to remove that search term. And I'm going to type in dog the template return or enter key my keyboard. And now only images that contain our dog are displayed. Now even images that don't contain a keyword title, or caption of the word dog, will display it our search, because Lightroom searches the content of our images. So right here we have an image of a wolf that Lightroom mistakenly classified as a dog. Click on the Wolf image and click on the info panel. We can see that there is no title or caption for this image. If you click on the keyword icon, you can see the keywords that are animals, Minneapolis, and Wolf. So Lightroom looked at the content of the image, determined, does that contained a dagger of these canine creature? So let's do another one. So it's kicking this search box on a tab bar backspace key will try tiger and tap the Enter. And now only images that contain a tiger or displayed. Now let's work for images with watch her in them. So I'm going to type Backspace again to remove that sorts term. I'm going to type in water. And I'll talk to enter or return on my keyboard. And these are all images with water in them. And again, Lightroom searched the content of these images and found what it classified as water. When your screen will look different than mine because I already had images in Lightroom that contained water. So another powerful element in Lightroom is the ability to search your metadata. For instance, you can search for a specific lens model, camera model, f-stop, whether or not a photo hasn't been edited from a specific album and more to do so you type in the metadata facet followed by a colon, and then choose the metadata by which you want to filter from the list. And I will put a list of all metadata facets of the screen. So you can take a screenshot or copy them down if you so choose. So I'm going to clear this hurts by clicking the X on the right side of this search box. And now we're going to search for metadata. So I'm gonna pick up this search box. I'm going to search bike camera type. So I'm gonna type in camera. And we can see the list of all cameras that were used to take the images in Lightroom here, display underneath. So we can see that we have images taken with a Nikon Apple iPhone as and our Minolta damaged Z six. So let's search for a specific camera lens. So I'm gonna click the X to clear that search and just touch. I'm going to type it lens colon. And as we can see, a list of lenses displayed. And these were all of the lenses that we're used to take the images in my specific Lightroom catalog. So if we wanted to display only images that were taken with this 50 millimeter lens are selected as only those images will display. So let's clear this search again, this table search for a specific key words from a type in a keyword colon. And as we can see, a list of all key words for all of my images displays. So that's choose animals from the list. So this displays only animals. And again, you can combine more than one search terms. So let me type it lens again. And I'll choose this first lens here, 855. So it fills it up even further. So only images on animals taken with this lens are now displayed. Now one of my favorite search features of Lightroom is the ability to quickly find images that are entertained or unedited. To do so you're typing edited followed by a colon, and then you choose yes or no. So let's do that. So I'm gonna clear this search by clicking the little x just search box. So we'll type it edited. Type in colon BC or two options, yes or no. So remember choose yes from the list. So only images that I have edited will now display. For instance, say, any images to which you've applied post-processing. And again, you can narrow this down even further by filtering by stars, by flags, and biodiesel metadata is a drop-down lists here. So yes, as you can see, Lightroom's search is indeed very powerful. 23. Exporting to a Hard Drive: So far this course we've looked at how to get your photos into Lightroom and hard to manage and organize them. Once we do get them in. Now comes the time to get them out of Lightroom and to save an image to your hard drive or to an external drive from Lightroom, used a File Export command from the menu. This then displays the export file panel for where we can modify some additional settings. The first of these is the file type, and we have a few different options at JPEG, tf is a lossless format, so this is ideal if you'll be editing the image and other applications such as Photoshop. No driver that tiff file sizes are considerably larger than jpegs. The next option is D and G, which stands for Digital negative. And this is an openly documented file formats designed primarily for raw images. And the last option is original and settings. This will create a copy of the image including metadata you've added, such as stars and keywords onto a dove and apply any of the edits that you've made to the image pixels. So there's again allows you to work on the raw image and other applications. The next option is Dimensions, and here you can resize your file to a couple of different options. Small, which is 248 pixels along the long edge. Full size, and custom, in which you enter in the long side dimensions. So we see right now, it's set that Ted 24 pixels. You can type in whatever value you weren't here. But I think I'm gonna leave this on his full size for now. The next option here is quality. And for the quality dropped DO lists, you choose the amount of compression. So how to present it as maximum quality and how's the largest file size, whereas 10% is a small file. Now below here we have output sharpening. So when exporting your image to different formats, some denigration to image quality might occur. So typically it's a good idea to apply output sharpening when exporting your images, unless you plan on printing the images later on, I typically will choose screened from the output sharpening drop-down list. If you aren't going to be printing the image, then you'll choose either match paper or glossy paper, depending on which we'll be using, are not underneath output sharply. Do we have the amount and let's see amount of sharpening. And I find temporary that standard is a good setting for the year sharpening amount. And I tend to leave that as is from the moral options area here. You choose what information gets ports and your files metadata. So if we're concerned about privacy, especially a GPS location, then you may not wish to select all metadata and choose a copyright to only instead. And then down below here we have color space. And here you choose the color profile that you'll want to use. The most common is SRGB, which is a smaller color space that's typically used for emailing images to others, or maybe uploaded them to a website or a web service. And other common option here is the Adobe RGB. Which is a slightly larger car space, is often requested by color labs. Would you print images through them? Again, it's always advisable to check with the Codelab that you're using to see which color space of the prefer. And Adobe RGB is also a good choice if receiving or image jpeg format for display P3 is a wide to gather to color space, and it's mainly used for when you're exploiting photos to display an Apple devices. So let's play around with this a little bit. I'm going to escape out of here, sort of falling along. You want to click the outermost folder in the my photos area. And I'm going to click the image of the male lion and then choose file, export them to display that export file pain. So we want to make sure that JPEG is displayed in the file. Ted dropped our list under the dimensions are full size. And for the quality, let's simply quality to about 80%. And that's typically a good amount for displaying images on the screen. And we'll add a little bit of output sharpening. So we want to ensure that screen is displayed in the output sharpening drop-down list and amount is set to standard. So let's change the name of this file before we export it. So I'll take the file name and drop-down list and we're going to choose custom name. And what we're going to do is type are old name for the image to want to click on the customer name drop DO list so that the existing texts there is highlighted were donated. This image male lion. And that's worker to include a watermarks where we want to accept the check the include watermark checkbox here. Then what I'm going to click the Settings icon. So a watermark, largely to add a text at watermarked photos as they're being exploited, most offer the lad copyright information as a watermark. And we can see the lower left corner of the image. I have my name on the copyright symbol displayed. So the top box here in the watermark panel is where you enter in the text for your watermark. And this can be your name first and last name, or the name of your business, the name of your website here, Facebook handle or Twitter handle, et cetera. From below here you can set the font for the text. So right now, you can see that as I choose, different options of front will change. The style. We have two styles, regular and bold, and we can see that text, considerably larger ones react very bold format into it. Let us rotate icon so we can see each time I click CIA taxi rotates 90 degrees. From the anchor area, we can choose a location of the watermarking on image. So right now it's set to the lower left corner. I can anchor to the lower right corner phase low choose the upper right corner, upper left corner, center, etcetera. But I think I'm going to leave it at the lower left corner. So the size slider allows you to modify the size. So drink the right to increase the size, triggered a left, decrease the size, opacity. So left decreases the capacity and to the right increases the apparently until it's full strength on the way to the right. So we'll leave it about there, so it's not so intrusive. And again, you can modify the horizontal and the vertical offset of the watermark. I don't think I want to increase the capacitors to little bit. I'm going to bring the low, lower down there, about, about there. So that's about it for water bargains are gonna click done. And now let's export our image. So it looks like expert on photo. Let's export this to the Muslim files folder on our desktop. So I'm gonna click desktop or the left pane, double-click the lesson files folder, and then we'll click export. Their image has now been exploited. 24. Sharing Albums and Photos: From within Lightroom, you can share individual photos, groups of photos, or even entire albums with others by summing them a link. They then have the option of viewing the images, downloading the images, or even uploaded their own images to your album. If you so choose to do so, you select an album and the album was Panel, right-click, and then choose Share and invite from the contextual menu. So let's do that. So for following along, let's click the summer vacation album or right-click and choose shirt invite. This displays the sharp uninvited dialogue. So the first thing you want to do is get a sharable link. So click the sharable link button. Link now displays in the little box here and here we have a couple of options as copying it to the clipboard, share to Facebook or shirt or Twitter. So if the link access is set to anyone can view as it is here, you can copy the link to your clipboard events centered by email or text message, or even post a twelv website. But this doesn't mean that your forums are being broadcast across the internet that anybody can view them in order to view your images, they still will need the link with the invite only option. Your images are set to private except for the people that you invited by email. So you'll need to enter their email address in the box and then choose invite. So let's type II error or guarantee.com knows them, they're invited, budget becomes activated. So for me, from the drop-down list here to the right of the email box, we have a couple of options allowing them to view or contribute. So when the can't contribute option is set and add photos button displays on top of the web gallery once the axises and then allow them to upload their own photos, two-year album. So from the settings option here, the Settings tab and we have a bunch of options that we can set under the photos ARE here. If the first option, the allowed JPEG Donald's and export option is turned on. This will allow users to download for a full resolution version of your JPEG. And again to turn an option on or off, just click on the little switch and that turns it off and then it turns it on. And then he option that is active editable display in blue. So let's turn this back-off. Other options show metadata. So you can choose whatever surely images metadata or not. Again, show the locations. So you could turn that off if you wish to keep your location private, allow comments and likes, and allow people to request access from the Customize tab here he could modify the title of the gallery. You can choose to display the author or not or hide the author maturity that off. Can also choose a female's. We have a couple of a couple of options. Photo grid column a one up, as well as the appearance darker light. So let's switch back to the invites tab here I'm gonna click the drop-down list and choose anyone can view. And I think that's about it. So I'll take a done to view all of the photos or album was that you've shared your click the sharing icon, which is the last icon in the left panel bar, just displays all of the objects that I am currently shared with others. So here's that summer vacation Florida that we just shared. So let's right-click and choose shown invite. To stop showing an orbital kicks a stop sharing button in the lower left corner of his dialogue that will remove all sharing access from that album. So let's take a look at the web version of this gallery. So let's take the customized Javier and I'm gonna click customize on the web. So we see a similar view that we saw on the desktop version or albums area and then sharing area. Here again are all the elements that we are sharing. If other people were showing albums with you, there would be a shared with you option here. Display all of the elements. There are images shared with you. So from this view, we can move your mouse pointer over the upper right corner of an image is a little box displays. Once you checks that, a menu pops up at the top of your screen. So here we couldn't set the selected image as the cover. Again, this the image that displays on top of the album. You could remove a vivid deleted ad to move to connect to which allows you as connected image to a service shirt or add keywords to the image. I'm gonna close this out. Simply click the little X for the menu and it gets a little menu gamma-ray Cordova image, we have SPC or some other options here we can rename this album to lead the album Sher, et cetera. So let's exit the web browser here and return back to the desktop version of Lightroom. I'm gonna click done. So on top of the sharing panel here on the desktop is an area marked connections, and these are connections to external web services. So if I click the disclosure triangle, we can see that I'm connected to two services right now, Adobe portfolio and blurb. To view all available connections, click the plus icon. We see we have three available. So a debris portfolio went from where you can create a photography website, blurb for where you can create a photo book of your images. The WACC for we could order prints of your images. I wanted to add WACC, I could just click Add connection and now that services connected. But I want to go back to my, my my photos area. So let's pick up the animals albums is switched to that. Could also share images and Albums using the share icon that's in the upper right corner of our screen here. So we can see that because the export or images, we also can get a link that displays that saved dialogue that we saw a moment ago. But the invite customizes settings options can also invite people. And again, the displaced that share uninvited dialogue. So just another way to share images or albums. So I think I want to stop sharing my summer vacation albums from a selected right-click, choose, Share and invite. And I'm gonna pick stop sharing. And I go B tells us a link axis would be set to invite only. And anybody with who you've shared your album with or images which will be removed, but photos up diluted by others will remain in your library and just click stop sharing. And that album is no longer being shared with others. So that is sharing in Lightroom. 25. Creating a Public Web Gallery: From the web version of Lightroom, you could create and manage a public, a gallery of your favorite albums that you can then share with others. It's easiest to first create one or more columns that you want to use for your web gallery. So once you've created, drew albums and decided which doubles you want to share, that we want to navigate to the web version of Lightroom. So I'm going to launch my web browser here. Then we want to navigate to Lightroom data, Adobe.com. So I'll type that into my search box and it immediately pops up because there was reasonably there. So I'll tap the Enter key on my keyboard and that's clicked the certification folder here. This is the same folder with which we've worked on the desktop version of Lightroom sorts or create or modify Gallery, we click the Share icon in the left panel bar and then click a gallery, a top of the shirt area. Here you modify your gallery settings by how they again, your name, description of the gallery, where the value went to allow downloads. A lot people who comment and like your images show the image metadata or should the location where the image was taken. The first thing we need to do is add an album to our gallery. So he kicks the albums button right down here. And then we choose the album from our album list. And let's add the summer vacation Album. Sort of select that. And you can see a little checkbox that says no that it's selected. And there we click add album. And under the content area we can see all of the albums that are added to our gallery. So you can add as many objects as you like. So toward another album, just take out ohms and then choose another album that you want to add. So I heard my name here, the name buxom belly that exist in description box. I'm just gonna type in my faves. So let's all downloads for our photos and will allow comments and likes. And we'll show the metadata, but we don't want to show the location. Certainly preview gallery by clicking the link on the upper right corner of the window. And this is the link to our gallery. If you want to share this link with others, clips, a little clipboard icon, and now that link is copied to your clipboard. So you can then paste that in an email, a text message, or website, a document. So let's take a walks here, our galleries, so we'll take the leaker sphere. We can see that by Gallery consists of two albums. And this is what the user will see, the people with whom you've shared your gallery. So it's kinda block summer vacation album here. This displays all of the images in that album. So I'll select neighbor to the birds here. And we can see that that displays full-screen. Could click the little three dots menu icon here, you can see we have the option to download information just please the metadata of the image, but nor is it does not display the location where the image was taken. And the icon beneath him fillet kind allows us to comment on the image. So I can see a little of this and my comment is posted. So now everybody will be able to see the comments that have been added to this image. So I'm gonna close out of this gallery and I'm our closest tab. So here we're back to our main gallery screen. And if I ever want to disable a gallery, could just click the button. And now a gallery is disabled and the link will no longer work beating people will no longer be able to access your gallery. But let's turn this bad crime. So yes, Lightroom's gallery feature is an excellent way of sharing groups of images with others, such as a family vacation or even a wedding. So you might want to spend some time playing with Lightroom's galleries. 26. Editing Basics: The editing tools in Lightroom allow you to enhance and modify your images and a non-destructive manner. That is to say, any of the changes you make to an image while using Lightroom are not permanent. You can always return to the original state of the image. So when you make changes to a photo, all you're really doing is providing Lightroom instructions on how to modify the image. And these instructions are saved separately from the file. Thus, you are not changing the actual pixels of the image, but are only changing the instructions. To display lightens added sliders, you click the Edit icon, and that's the first icon on top of the right panel bar here. Or it can tap the E key on your keyboard to toggle the display of the image paddle. So here we see six panels, light, color effects, detail, optics and geometry. And it is from these parallels that you'll make the adjustments to your photos. If you've worked at all with Adobe Camera rather than you may notice if the sliders in the Edit panel and Lightroom are identical to those that Adobe Camera Raw. So to expand a panel on display, it's sliders. Click on the name of the panel, or click on the left pointing disclosure triangle to the left of the panel name, not expose. The panel displays all of the sliders in that panel. So to display all the color sliders, you would click of the word color. And again to collapse the paddle tick of the name of the panel, and that collapses the panel and hides the sliders. Now the right panel, a bar below the Edit icon, you'll find some additional icons for tools. And the first is the crop tool. Next is the Healing Brush. Notice as I move my mouse pointer over 2l, little informational box appears like us know what the tool is and what the shortcut key for that tool is as well. So Healing Brush, brush. Below that is the linear gradient is 2l. And the radial gradients tool. And below that is a three button menu with some additional options. So we'll be working with all of these panels and these tools in upcoming videos. So we're gonna be working with some different images for the editing section of this course. So let's import them Now if you're following along. So we'll click the add photo icon on top of the left panel bar. You'll want to navigate to the lesson files folder on our desktop. So I'll take a desktop in the left pane, double-click the lesson files folder, select the images folder, and then we'll click review for import. We want to make sure that each of these images has a little check mark in the upper left corner. And if they don't want to click the Select all checkbox so that they're all selected. And let's import them into a new albums. So we're going to click the Add To album drop-down list, click new. And I think we'll name this album editing. So we'll type that in. And then click Create. And that about does it. So lastly, we'll click Add 31 photos. And images are now importing. And we now have a new album in the LMS area called editor. And let's move that into our class tough folder. So I'll click on the album and then drag it until it's over class stuff and then release the mouse button. So if you click on this album, we can see all of the images that we've edited. So let's put the image of the truck here and then we'll tap the key on our keyboard. Because see that displays the edit pane on the right side of our screen and also displays the detail view of this image with a film strip of other remaining images in the album underneath. So if the light's pebble isn't expanded, click of the word light to expand it. So here we see several slider is he exposure contrast highlights, shadows, whites and blacks. And if you wanted to apply an adjustment to the image, just click the slider and drag it to the left and right. And we can see the image adjust as I drag. And again, we're going to be working with all of these sliders in upcoming videos. 27. Raw vs JPEG Processing: If you set up your camera to shoot in JPEG format, your camera will apply various settings to your image, such as white balance, contrast, saturation, and sharpness when it saves the image. If you're shooting in raw format, however, and he's such settings are discarded when you bring the image into Lightroom shooting and raw format tells her camera they too don't want the camera to apply these adjustments as you will apply them later, run yourself in post-processing. Raw format is more flexible. It offers more opportunity to recover image details in overexposed, underexposed images JPEG format. Now there are a couple of instances where Lightroom handle's DJ print files differently than raw files. One of these is white balance, which is located in the colour panel on and that's out of the edits pays. So let me tap the E key on my keyboard. And again, you can also click the top icon here on the right panel bar. And then we want to pick up the word color. And the white doll is option is on top of the colour panel. Lightroom allows you to apply a variety of white balance settings to your raw images, such as Daylight, Cloudy, Shade, Tungsten, Fluorescent, and flash, and JPEG 4-byte. However, the white bell is options are limited to I Shot Auto and custom thus was shooting in JPEG format. You want to make sure that your white Belen settings are correct in your camera because your options in post-processing are limited. So let's work with this a little bit. So for falling along its temperature peak here at our keyboard, and we want to switch to the editing albums. So I'll click that in the left pane and let's tap G to display our images in GridView, we wanna click on the image of a yellow flower that's as image rate here, we can see the low enough corner that it's in D and G format, which means this image was taken in raw format as opposed to JPEG. So we'll click it. And now let's take the editor had kinda top of Illinois parallel bar. And we want to ensure those the color paddle is displayed. So we're gonna take the word color on top of a panel that's kept the white balance drop down list. And we're going to see all of the options that are available to us. And we're actually going to work with white Belgian much more depth in a later video. So now let's tap the escape key or keyboard. And then what's helped the right arrow key to move to the next image of this album. And that's again takes the light develops drop-down list. And this time we see that we only have the three options As Shot Auto are accustomed because as image jpeg format. So let's escape out of here. Now another area where you may notice a difference is under the profile options on top of the edits paid. And that's right up here on the very top of the editor came in JPEG images. The profile settings are applied in camera, become part of the jpeg file and raw files. However, the profile settings are discarded, allowing you to apply them later on in Lightroom or at another postprocessing application. So let's tap the left arrow key on our keyboard to move back to that yellow flower image. And if I click the profile drop-down list, we see all of the different options available, but there'll be color, landscape, portrait, et cetera. However, if attempt the right arrow key on a keyboard or click the profile drop-down list again, we see two options, colour, monochrome, so much more flexibility with Rod images. Now it's worth mentioning at this point that many people confuse raw processing with a raw file formats. Rob processing is the edge of that Lightroom and Camera Raw use to process an image. A camera rod is available in applications such as Photoshop, Photoshop Elements After Effects him bridge. What do using the range and in Lightroom, any adjustments you make 20 image are saved to the Lightroom catalogue knots to the image itself. Also, even though you're using the raw engine, you can modify it. Other image types such as JPEG, PNG, PDF, or tiff as well. So thus wood you're modifying, adjusting and image and Lightroom. You're not changing any pixels. Only the instructions raw format, on the other hand, is your cameras proprietary image format such as D and G, which is Adobe's format, and the F Nikon's rough format. See RW or see or too, which is cannons rough From a match or, or f, which is Olympus as rough format. And each camera manufacturer has their own unique raw extension. So just to keep in mind the difference between raw format and the rocket engine. 28. Viewing Before and After: When editing photos, you may from time to time, which to check on your progress by comparing the current state of the image with the original. To display the before and after view of your image who taps a backslash key on your keyboard, then a view of the original image before any edits will appear in the center a window to display the after view of the image. You tap the backslash key again. You could also take the shore original icon to toggle between the before and after view. That says icon on the lower right corner of your work pane here. So we can tab that as well. So let's see how this works. That'd paid isn't displayed. You want to tap the E key on your keyboard to display it. And then we're gonna click their profile drop-down list, and we're going to choose Adobe vivid. And this applies to a profile, to the image. And we're going to be working with profiles and a lot more detail in an upcoming video. So now let's tap the backslash key on our keyboard. We have before, after, before, after. And again we can click the icon before, after, before. And again we see a little button here, and it lets us know that we're looking at the original state of the image. And then again, after. So just a quick way of checking on your editing progress. 29. Making Virtual Copies: By creating virtual copies of your images or versions, you can experiment on the same photo using a variety of different settings, virtual copies, and look just like the originals and you can apply settings to each one independently. But the beautiful thing about virtual copies is that they are not real files. There are only a set of instructions, which means that take up no extra space on your Adobe account that you can create as many copies as you like without having to worry about using up all of your disk allotment. Note that any changes you make to a virtual copy to not affect the original image since version and creates a copy of the image using the slider settings at the time that you create it, you'll want to make your adjustments first. Then you click on the word versions of the bottom of the edits pain, or press the Shift and V keystroke combination. Then you click the Create version icon and then provide a name for a virtual copy when prompted. So let's work with this a little bit. So I'm a topology key on my keyboard to switch to grid view. And again, we're working that energy gallows. So if you're not working in that album, went to tap the P key on your keyboard and then click editing and the albums area of the left pane. So we want to double-click on the image of the fruit dish. And this is blue fruit dish with a fruit inside of it. So double-click it and then displays that image in detail view. And this is the image of which I want to create a version. So now I want to display the edit panel so we'll help the key on my keyboard. And we wanted to expand the light panel so we'll click them the words light. So I'm gonna play some adjustments to his image. I'm just going to drag the Exposure slider to the right a little bit. The Contrast slider to the right would be allowed to turn up the lights, turned on and turned on the blacks have been just to apply some settings to this image. And again, we're going to work with a light Palo in upcoming videos. So now let's tap the shift to V keystroke combination to display the versions pain. And again, it could also take the Word versions and the bottom of the edit pane. Next we'll click the Create version icon. I want you to provide a name for our version. So I'm just going to call this fruit dish copy and then look to create our version or our virtual copied notice plays in the versions pain. We see that we have two copies here, our original version and the copy that we created. And this is the copy with the settings that we applied. North as I move my mouse pointer over the two versions that are central pain, adjust their quarterly to display that version of the image. Slope that diversion there'll be credited as a little three dots menu here. And if you click here, we see that we can rename this version to change into something else, or we could delete it entirely. I think I want to create one more copy of my fruit dish to see what this photo will look like in black and white. So we'll click the original image in the versions pain from the profile drop HDL is on top of the other paid. I'm going to choose monochrome salts, reversions, pain isn't displayed. What to click the Word versions and the bottom of the panel. And then we'll click the Create version icon and we'll name this fruit dish the M w. And then we'll click Create. So now we have three versions here. Our original one that we made the adjustments to, and then the black and white version knows that whatever version to how selected is the version that will display in the film strip. And when you click as this becomes your main image. So right now we have our black and white version selected. You see the black and white thumbnail and our filmstrip. If I click the Copy, there'll be created. Now that version is displayed in the film strip and that becomes our active image. So note that if you make any changes to the image, they will not be made to the versions. Those stay the same. They are unchangeable once created. So if you make a subsequent change to an image that you don't like it, you can always jump back to one of your saved versions or create a new version with your changes. Let's say I have brought down the exposure where it along as well. I don't like this at all. And you can always just go back to my food dish copy and restore that version of the image. So let's click on the black and white version. And again, black and white version displays in the film strip. So any changes made from here on out will be made to this version of the image as we just saw. So let's go back to our original image. So I'm gonna click original in the versions pain. And let's delete that second version that we created, the fruit dish copy. So we'll take a little three dots venue and then choose the delete version from the menu and then click Delete. Now there's another way of creating a version of an image, and that's by creating a duplicate. Now what this does is creates another physical copy of your photo. So in essence, you'll then have to photos to create a copy of an image you right click and then choose a duplicate of one photo from the contextual menu. So let's do that. So let's right-click the image of the fruit. Tish. I will choose duplicate one photo from the contextual menu. Now we see we have two copies of this image, each that we can modify independently. So that is how to create virtual copies and duplicates in Lightroom. 30. Using Single Panel Mode: By default, every time you expand a panel, it remains open until you collapse it. If you work with several different panels, having them all but I'll ones can clutter up your screen as well as create extra effort by you having to constantly scroll up and down to find the panel you'll want to use. There is a solution however, and that solution is single parallel mode. What this does is collapses all of the panels except for the active panel, the one that you're currently working with. So every time you expand a new panel, the previous panel is automatically closed. Thus you end up with only one panel open at a time. To switch to signal parallel mode, you'll click the menu icon in the left panel bar and then choose single parallel mode from the menu. So let's work with this a little bit. So very affects painters had disappeared when I tap the E key on your keyboard. Now let's click on the word light to expand the light panel, we can see that both the light panel and the effects panel are both expanded. Again, if I expanded the detail pedal as well, then all three of those panels are now expanded. So again, you just kill, spend a lot of time scrolling up and down and the ping. So far as we can see our effects pane here is getting kind of cluttered. So let's click on the menu icon to the right pedal bar. And then we'll click signal pedal mode from the menu. So now we see all of the parallels are closed. So let's click on the word light. Although the light parallel is expanded and then click on the word effects, we can see that the light panel automatically closed and the effects paddle is not excited. And this is the only panel that's open. Same thing if I click on color. Now the color parallel as he already panel open. So yes, single parallel mode and nice way of keeping here edits pay not cluttered. 31. Editing Shortcuts: There are several handy shortcuts that can help you to work faster and more efficiently when added to images of life whom we've already seen, how you can hide all panels except for the ones that you're working on by switching to a single panel mode. Now if you've made a change to a farther to does't like, she's always revert to the default state of the slider by either double-clicking the Slider icon. So let's say I decrease exposure to 2.042 here. So I could either double-click on the Exposure slider or I can move my mouse pointer over the word exposure. And once it changes to reset, I can click on the word Reset and now research the slider to his default position. So let's make some changes to this fruit tissue image. So you wanna make sure that we're the Edit pencil tap the key on our keyboard, and I'm going to drag the exposure side or to the right. And I'm going to drag it to our crazy most of their right to one-pointed age eight. And next I'll drink the highlights that are to the left to maybe BO minus 60. We can see that those numbers changes. Little box has I dragged letting us know the value, the current value of the slider. So I'm going to release my mouse button above there. And let's decrease the blacks as well. But this time, instead of dragging the slider, just going to double-click of the little box and type in minus 40. And this is just another way of setting the value of a slider and it'll type Enter. We can see that the Black Spider adjusted to the left. So now I want to reset the Exposure slider to its default value. So I'll move my mouse pointer over the word exposure. And once it changes to reset, I will click on the word reset that resets that slider. If you wanted to reset all of the sliders in the panel, you right-click on the panel name and then choose Reset name a panel from the contextual menu. So I wanted to reset all of the sliders and the light panel. So I'll right-click in the word light and then choose Greece have light. Because we want you to reset the image state to the original For all sliders, all panels, you choose photo, recent edits for the menu. If you'd also tough to shift our keystroke combination. Now if you prefer using a keyboard instead of a mouse, you can quickly switch pretrain panels and the edit pane by using the command key and use command or control key fusing windows. And then the number of the panel. Each panel is numbered in sequential order or delight, probably one, carpel bean to effects panel being three and so on. So if we wanted to display the light panel, you'd hold them a command key views and amalgam control key music windows, and then tap the one key on your keyboard and that expands the lights panel. Spray the effects palliative, although the commander control key and three, and that expands the effects pedal. So now let's hold them the Command or Control key and tap the number four. And this expands the detailed paddle. And I got a hold on the capacitor control of key again and then tap for to collapse the panel. But we wanted to redisplay the lights panel. So we'll hold down command or control and then tap one. It can also display the histogram by using the command or control plaza 0 keystroke combination. Similar press that. And there are displays, the histogram on top of the edit pane and commander control 0 again to hide it and will be working with the history of M in another video. Now the other tools in the right panel bar also have shortcuts. So see displays the crowded panel. H for Healing Brush, B for brush, L for linear gradient, and R for radio gradient. And to return back to the edit to pay mortality e key on our keyboard. So I think that'll do it for now for editing shortcuts. And maybe who've you to memorize those shortcuts that you use the most. As I personally have found with a greatly speed up my workflow. 32. Jumping into Photoshop: There might be times when you need to make an adjustment to an image that's Lightroom can't handle. For instance, you may need to do some work with layers and layer masks. Or perhaps you need to do some more advanced partner we touching, luckily can move back and forth between Photoshop and Lightroom with ease to open an image in forests shop and select the image in a filmstrip and then choose File enters in Photoshop from the menu, we see that we can also use the command E keystroke combination of using a Mac or control ie if using Windows. So let's do that. So let's click the image of the fruit dish. I'll choose file and it's in Photoshop. And we can see that our photo including any light to of adjustments is now open and former shop. And of course, in order to use this command, you need to have photoshop installed on your computer. So your screen may look different than mine depending on your version of Photoshop. So once we've built our changes in Photoshop and exit the application, a new version of the image in tiff format will be created and then saved in Lightroom. The original photo, I'm the Editor, teff will be displayed as a stack in Lightroom. So in other word, enforce help, let's make some changes. So let's choose the image adjustments. And we'll choose brightness and contrast from the menu. And let's drink the Brightness slider to the right to about 25, and that's dreads the contrast slanted to the right as well to about 11. And then I'll click OK. And notice that the extension on the file name is changed to fruit dish dot f. So then that's all the Lightroom adjustments I want to make to this image that's choose File, Save from the menu. And I might use Photoshop, crit Photoshop. So now we see our stack here with the number two in the upper right corner. So I click on tutor expand this duck, you see the tiff version of the image as well as the original JPEG version of the image. So let's take the first image in the film strip here, then top the ikea keyboard, spare the info panel. And here you can see the name and quickly identify it as a tiff format. This is the phyla we modified in former shop. You click the second image. This is an original JPEG image that we opened in Photoshop. So as you can see, the original file remains untouched and our changes are saved in this tiff file. But I really don't need this test files. I'm gonna right-click it and the filmstrip and choose delete one photo from the contextual menu. Then we'll click delete, and a TIF file is now deleted on the original image is displayed in our film strip. So that is how to quickly jump to Photoshop and make additional changes if need be. 33. The Light Panel: In this video, we're going to work some more with the light panel, the sliders or this power, both powerful and flexible. And it is in this panel where many folks spend the majority of their time because the signers here are excellent at fixing many exposure problems in images. Some are falling on. You want to tap the EQ unit keyboard to destroy the other pain. Then we want to take out the word light. So the six exposures sliders of the light panel help you to fix images that are underexposed all over exposed or those that have a little too much or too little contrast. These sliders are with the Exposure slider, which modifies the overall brightness of the image. So you drag the slider to the right to lighten the image or to increase the exposure, or to the left to darken your image or decrease exposure. The next slider is the Contrast slider. And with this slider, you drink to the right to increase contrast. Because see that as really get into pop as we drag to the right. And again, we could drag to the left to decrease contrast to smooth out the image. And next up is the highlight slider, and you drag this slider to the left to darker the highlights have an image or to the right to brighten the highlights. Now if your image suffers from highlights clipping, that is to say areas of the image is so bright that some of the detail is lost. Tried Reagan, the slider to the left to reduce some of that clipping. The shadow slender works similarly to the Hamlet slider and drag it to the left, her dark and shadows, and drag it to the right to brighten shadows. And again for image suffers from Shadows clipping where some parts of your photoresist so dark, that detail is lost. And try dragging the slider to the right to reduce some of that clipping. And the two remaining starters of a whites and blacks, the whites increases or decreases the white dinner every image allowing you to recover lost details do Tool underexposed highlights like weizza black slider increases or decreases the black areas ever image library to recover lost details due to underexposed shadows. So let's play around with somebody's slider. So I'm going to reset polite parallel here, silver falling along. We want to tap the G key or keyboard is switched to the grid view. And we want to display the image named insight of flour. And that's as a bridge right here. And if we tap the ikea and our keyboard to display the info panel, we can see that there was a photo in the filename area. And I'll talk the icky again to hide the info panel. It's almost fluxes image into V key on our keyboard that displays the image of detail view displays the adult parallel. Or if you're liked, penalize them displayed to want to click on the word live trace paths the panel. So we'll start by adjusting the exposure. So I'm going to run the Exposure slider to the right around plus 0.70 or 80 or so. Next of add some contrasts. But this time I'm going to type in the value that I want. So they're ticking the box to the right of the contrast here. And we're gonna type in plus eight and then tap the return or enter key and a keyboard. And that increases the contrast of aids levels. So now let's display the before and after of his image. So whatever the backslash, cuter keyboard before, after, before, after the war, as we've already discussed, if you don't like the adjustments you made to an image, you can revert back to the original photo settings by right-click in the name of the panel and then choosing reset pedal limb from the contextual menu. This will reset all of the sliders and the active panel. You can also hold them the old keep using Windows or the Option key if you're using a Mac. And we see that all the panel names change to reset under the pen name. So I could click the reset light to recent, the light panel. We said affects to recently effects panel and so on. So let's do that. So it's home only Option or Alt key. And then we'll take reset lights on top of the panel to see that all of the sliders adjusted back to the 0 position are going to be looking at each of these light sliders in more detail in upcoming videos. 34. Choosing a Camera Profile: If you're shooting in raw format as compared to JPEG, you're follows might appear dull and lack lustre. And the reason for this is that you are in essence telling your camera not to bake any color or exposure adjustments in camera. The images are not processed in the camera at all, was shooting in JPEG format. However, the camera tries to correct the image to make it look the best as possible. But one advantage of shooting it raw format is that you have much more flexibility when it comes to post-processing your images, especially as far as white balance is concerned, when first opening a photo and Lightroom, some people like to apply and Adobe raw profile, such as Adobe vivid or Adobe landscape to their photo. As a starting point, Adobe Rob profile simulate options that you can set in your camera. And often an Adobe row profile, the adjusted image saw that closely resembles an image that were shot and JPEG format, the profile drop-down list on top of the Edit panel displays a fuse tethered Adobe well profile to get you started. But as we learned in a previous video, the only options that are available to images saved and JPEG format, our monochrome in color. So let's click on a raw image. So we're gonna click on the image of the monkey in our film strip. So let's drag the scroll bar or the bottom of a stream filmstrip to the right until the image of the mykey displays, then it will select it. Now on top of the Edit panel, you want to click the profile drop-down list. We can see all of the available Adobe profiles. So let's choose Adobe color from the list and then replace that profile to our photo. Let's try it over the landscape. And the landscape profile is applied to this image. But there are now many additional other profiles available. To view them. Click the Browse All profiles from the drop-down menu, or click the little grid icon, which is the profile browser icon, to display our profile browser swan to the UW Ross sexually, we click on the words Adobe rocked. To expand it, you find the same Adobe profiles that we saw in the profile drop-down list. There are, however, several other categories or profiles such as artistic, a black and white, moderate and vintage. Sort of click on camera matching profiles, matching your camera make and model will display. These will vary depending on the type of camera you're using. And note that as I move my mouse cursor over the profiles are image adjusts the work area to reflect what the image would look like with that profile attached. Let's take a look at some of the artistic profiles from there, click the word artistic, and that expands that area. And again, moving our Bob's partner over the profile, sudden nails displays a preview of that profile. And to apply a profile to image it is click on the profile thumbnail. So let's apply this artistic for profile to the imagemin and click it. And the profile has now been applied to our photo and we're happy new future with profiles is that you do click on a profile thumbnail to apply it to an image languages did. And amounts fighter appears in the profile browser longest hidden troll, the intensity of the profile, much like we see with the capacities Theater in Photoshop. So we can drag the amount centered to the left or right until the desired effect is attained. So let's drag it to the right, maybe about a 100 and leverage or so. And this increases the intensity of the profile. But let's say I wanted to do a play a little bit less of the profile to the sort of trigger to the left. And notice that if I drag it all the way to the left, the original state of the image is displayed, but that's what it is, what a little touch of it. So maybe about bridge there until I release my mouse button. Now on top of the profile browsers, that little three dots menu. And from here we can change how the profiles of the profiles browser server, if you'd choose, right now it's set to agree. And so we could choose it as a view him as a list, or as large thumbnails. But let's go back to the grid views or choose grid for the list. Now if your profile windows becoming cluttered, you can hide the profiles that you rarely use to do so you right-click on the name of an IEP profile, Gruber, then choose Hide, and then the group, and then contextual menu. So if I never used vintage that could right-click and choose Hide vintage, and now vintage no longer displays and my menu. And to get the back, we click a little Profile menu, then choose managed profiles. And now I can take the box next to vintage to redisplay it, we see that we also have our legacy profiles hidden. So I'm going to click the checkbox to redisplay our legacy profiles. And let's go back to our profile browser. So let's take it back on top of the pain here. Now if there are specific profiles that you use, often, you can add them to the favorites area on top of our list here, we can see that I have are fewer already added here, Adobe Color and there'll be a monochrome, et cetera. So let's say I really like this artistic for profile. And then the nozzle as you move your mouse pointer over a proof of the little favorite site kind of appears in the upper right corner. Data to our Fermat's hurry up and clicks a star icon. And now it's lit and letting us know about profile has now been added to our favorites. So now if we click in and favorites because see the artistic far profile that we added. So this is just a way to quickly access your favorites profiles. Now what's interesting about profiles is that they don't overwrite any of your existing slider settings. For instance, if you apply a preset to an image, you will change all of the existing sliders that she may have set. Profiles on the other hand, to act as an additional layer over your current settings and do not override anything that you've already done was your edit sliders. So I think we're done with profiles here. Sort of think of the word back to return back to our edit pane. 35. Adjusting Image Exposure: The Exposure slider is the first slider under the light panel allows you to adjust the overall image brightness. So you drink the right to lighten your image or drag to the left to darken it. Now exposure is measured in f-stops, indicating how much light your camera let sin, and it has a range of minus five to plus five, would drink a slider to fart either direction, you may begin to lose detail. Saws dreamy image slider to the right to about one parts two zeros. So there's increases the exposure to 1.20 could also click on the exposure box and type in the value directly into the box. Now let's reset all of the sliders in the light panel. And to do so, we hold on the Alt key using Windows or the Option key, mac. And I've taken the words reset light when they appear. Again, we see that the name of the panel changes to reset and then Panel name. So let's click on the exposure box and there's some 100 and type in plus 0.80. And then we'll attempt to return our entity and a keyboard. And that fig rules leave the exposure here for the time being. 36. Adjusting Image Contrast: If your image appears flat, adjusted in the contrast to may help using the contrasts light over here, the light panel, you can increase or decrease the contrast of your photos and careers. In contrast, mixed the light pixels lighter and decreasing contrast makes the dark pixels darker. In other words, it increases the potency of the whites and blacks given your photos and an extra bit of pop. Now as your changes the Contrast you'll notice to the left and right edges of the histogram, which is located on top of the edges parallel and adjust accordingly. And if you don't see the histogram, I'm going to tap the Command or Control and 0 keystroke combination of that displaced the Histogram. So those, those are just the contrast. The edges of the histogram adjusts accordingly. The left edge of the histogram represents the blacks and the right edge represents the weights. And I'm going to reset contrast here. So let's click on a different image and let's tap the G key or keyboard to switch to grid view. And we were to click on the image named ruins. And thus this emerge right over here next to the squirrel on my screen. So click the Misha selective in Italia e on a keyboard to display the image detail view, as well as display the edit pane. So the first thing I wanted to do is adjust the exposure of as images. It's quite dark. So I'm going to take the Exposure slider and drag to the right to about 1.30 or so. Now I wanted to add a little bit of pop to the image. So we'll drag a Contrast slider to the right, to above plus 20, I think should do it. And again, if you type in the value directly into the contrast boxes if you wanted to. So let's take a look at the before and after are enriched, so tough the backslash, cuter keyboard or before, after, before, after. 37. Adjusting Shadows & Highlights: We saw that when adjusting the image exposure using the exposure slider, the entire photo lightens or darkens as you move the slider. You can however, adjust only the highlights and the shadows of an image using the highlights and shadows sliders, which are rage here below the contrasts later. The highlight slider allows you to lighten or darken to only the highlights of an image. So you drink the slider to the left to darker than the highlights or to the right of tub brighten the highlights and have your photo suffers from highlights clipping such as India, if you drink it all the way to the right, we see that detail. Whites had been the husband lost. You drink this side or to the left to try to big back. So my detail, but I want to reset the house started for now. So I'm gonna move my most purge over the word real highlights until it changes into Reset. They click Reset. So for falling along, you want to click the image of the white allele in our film strip. So let's drag the scroll bar on the bottom of the flips up to the right until the image of the limit is played in this image right here. So we'll click it. And the images now displays in detail view. So w1 to display the lily image of the light panel sort of relate penalty isn't expanded. Press command to whatever you're using a Mac or Control. Why defusing windows and that expands the light paddle. So let's click at the highlights box and let's type in eight and then tap the return keener keyboard. Alternatively, you could just drag the highlights tighter to the right until plus eight reasons. A little box. A shadow slider which is directly underneath the highlights fighter, works the same wave, drag it to the left to darker shadows or to the right to lighten them. Again, if your photo suffers from Shadows clipping, that is to say when error is of the image that was so dark that some of the detail is launched. Try dragging the slider to the right to help reduce some of that Cleburne. So let's darken the shadows a little bit. So I'm gonna drag this to the left to about minus 25 or so. Had us take a look at our before and after. So before, after, before, after. So it was a little bit of a difference. So that's adjusting shadows and highlights in Lightroom. 38. Adjusting the Blacks & Whites: Directly below the highlights and shadows sliders, you'll find two additional sliders, the whites and the blacks. There were these letters you can recover a lost details in overexposed highlights or underexposed shadows and gain back some of the details in those areas. The white slider controls the brightest areas of her image, whereas the black Slater controls the darkest areas of your image. Now how do you know if you're losing detail from either the whites for the blacks to see if we're losing detail in any of the radar blockers, every image, you could turn on the ecliptic indicators by tapping the J key on your keyboard is toggles, show hide clipping, tsunami was Clippy turned on if I great. Whites fed it to the right. We see bits of red up here. And this lets us know of as he began to lose detail. Or we can see that we're losing detail in these areas of the image. I'm going to reset that. Likewise with the blocks. If I drink the block centre to the left, blue errors over up here or wherever losing detail in the darkest areas of the image. And that will reset this as well. So it's not just the waste of his image. So I'm going to bring the West letter to the right to about plus ten. And this lightens the white areas of the image. So gnaws darker the blocks of the image from drink the black sweater to the left to about minus five. And we see that we have a little bit of clipping ridge here, but I'm not really concerned about that. That's fine. So in some cases you might actually want dark or all black errors of reimbursement, that that's the case, then you can ignore the black clipping warnings. Now you can also use these two sliders to set up the white and black point-of-view or image, which expands the tonal range and works as a great starting point. It also provides a uniform base with which to edit your photos. Some photographers have to white to black point for every image that they work on. So to set the white part is you hold down the option key if using a match or the old Cave who's the windows, and then drag the white slider to the right until a few specks of color begin to appear. And then we released the boss budget and the altar Option key. So the black part of works the same way. So again, a holder of the option or old key, and then drink the black slider to the left until first specks of color appeared. Once they do, I'll release my mouse button. So now both are black point, I'd are white point are set. 39. Adjusting Vibrance and Saturation: Two sliders that you could use to boost the colored your photos are the Vibrance and Saturation sliders. And these are low Kennedy in colour panel in the edit pane. So we would tap the keener keyboard and click on the word color. And these bottom two sliders on the Vibrance and Saturation sliders. Typically you'll use one or the other of these liars, but usually not both, as they work in different ways though you certainly can use both to attain the effect you're looking for. Vibrant slider causes DLT colors to become more vivid, but the changes in colors that are already vivid are minimal. What's nice about the vibrant slider is that it avoids changing skin tones. So it's an ideal slider to use if there are people at your photo. To sliders also very good at helping blues to come out of a washed-out sky. So for falling along this template, GQ switched the grid view. And the image that we're going to be working with is the insight of flour. And that's his image right here to the left of the monkey image of my screen. Next, what's up the key or a keyboard to display the editor panel. And you'll want to click on the word color to expand the colour panel. It was not already expanded. So let's pick the vibrant slider and drag it to the right to about seven or so. And what this does is increases the vibrancy of the more muted colors. Now the saturation slider, which is right underneath the vibrant Slater, it testifies all of the colors in an image equally, not just the LDL was, this includes skin tones and it makes them more vivid. So typically, you'll want to use this slider on people, pictures or less. You like fluorescence skin. Actually some people call this the sunburn slider. So, uh, yes, avoided the saturation study with people. The saturation Sita results are an excellent way of removing color from an image, sort of bring it all the way to the left here we see that all the color has now been removed from this image. But let's undo that. So holder the commands, the keystroke combination of using a Mac or Control Z if it was a Windows. Saturation side is especially good for enhancing all of the colors in a photo, such as in a landscape photo. So if you find a lost during the saturation site or all the way to the right. And we can see how intense the colors becoming the greens are kind of iPods for you probably wouldn't want to go this far. Maybe, maybe about 37 or so. But now I want to take a look at how this image would look like in black and white. So let's drag the such races site or all the way to the left to minus 100 and we see that that image has now been desaturated. Oh, okay, so I've changed my mind and decided I want to reset the saturation slider back to his default value. Several double-click directly on the slider, and we can see that it has now set a twist 0 position. So that's vibrance and saturation. 40. Adjusting Clarity: Another type of contrast he could add to your photos is clarity, which is also referred to as local contrast. We saw in an earlier video of the Contrast slider adjusts the black and white pixels of your image. The Clarity slider, on the other hand, modifies the mid tones of your photos, which is the middle area of the histogram. That's this area here. And it does a really good job at making the image details pop. It provides somewhat about sharpening effect and comes in especially handy for adding contrast to clouds or adding a bit of drama to your images. It gives a sharp look while taking out some of this saturation. I tend to use the clarity starter for those errors of my photos of the contrast site or doesn't change. And the Clarity slider is located in the effects panel and that's in the edit pane. And this is as the subject of starting from the top directly below texture. Noted that in most cases it's best to avoid increasing clarity and images of people as it could enhance skin texture and wrinkles, creating a harsh look which isn't usually what you want of their sure. Amy, for grunge look, the Clarity slider will also add contrast to those areas of the image that are blurred, which again, might not be what you want. Now if you're drinking a clarity started to the left. This is referred to as negative clarity, and this creates a soft focus, almost adding a dreamlike effect to your images. Many people in the past, but use this to soft and faces of portrait images. Though the relatively new texture slider does a much better job of this, or at least I find that to be the case. So let's work on this together a bit. So we're going to work on the image named ruins and the CIA image. I'm ice cream next to the inside of flower image as there's image here. So it's click it and this becomes Z active image. And you want to click on the word effects to expand the effects panel. So let's bring the Clarity slider to the right to about maybe 15 or so. So a second worked with before and after this image. So we have before, after, before, after showing up, say along the Clarity slider or if you have some dollar lackluster images as it can make image details pop. 41. Adding and Removing Texture: In this video, we're going to take a look at that texture slider, which was added in a recent version of Lightroom. Some of this feature does is removes her adds texture to a photo. This feature is excellent for removing texture, smoothing out skin during portrait reattaching, which can be accomplished by dragging the texture slider to the left to accentuate details such as hair or rocks or bark. You drag the slider to the right, which adds more texture or sharply to the image. The texture tools located in the effects panel and is the first tool in this panel. And from this panel, this slider allows you to apply texture as a global adjustment, that is to say all errors over image. The tool is also available in the brush panel, a linear gradient panel, and the radial gradients panel. And we're going to work with these panels in upcoming videos and in these panels to brush the radial grade into the linear gradient. Up from here, you can paint on the texture adjustment only to specific areas ever image rather than doing it globally. And we're going to work with all of that again in later videos. So what's nice about the texture tool is that it doesn't change the color or color tone of your image. So let's work with this a little bit. So in the filmstrip peer B10, scroll over until we see an image of rocks in the water. So I'll click that image is quite UDL as a lackluster image. And again, you want to ensure that the effects PAL has expanded. So let's draw the texture slider to the right as DRE away over two to b, b to about 60 or so, and I have 62 here. We can see that there's rarely brought up the texture of the rocks and the water. Let's look at the before and after of this, before, after, before, after. Now we're going to drag a texture slider to the left of the opposite direction, about dragging it to about minus 50 or so. And notice how much smoother everything becomes, especially the water. So again, let's look at the before and after with his image. So before, after, before, after. So it really adds a soft dreamy effect two of the image. So let's reset the textures started back to 0. So a bouba mouse pointer over the word texture, then click reset when the word changes under texture, slider is about to his default position. And that is using the texture slider in Lightroom. 42. Removing Haze from an Image with Dehaze: A welcome future in Lightroom is the D Hayes tool, which is located in the effects panel. So we're going to look at the board effects to expand the panel that behaves slider is the third slider from the top. With the haze, you can decrease the amount of fog or a haze in an image and that behaves fighters also available when working with the brush tool, the radial gradients tool, and the linear gradients tool. And again, with these tools, you can apply the effects to selected areas of the image rather than globally, but from the effects panel trigger that behave slider to the left or right will apply them effects to the entire image. So as you're dragging the A's started to the right haze is removed from the photo. Note, however, that this slider does tend to increase the blues in the image. So you don't want to drag the slider too far to the right. It also has some other negative side effects sometimes such as adding halos and increased for noise. It could also cause such August to become more pronounced. So you'll want to keep this in mind whether using it. And again, if you want to remove haze from owning certain areas of the image, you can brush TAs on without affecting the other parts. We're going to look at that reworked with these other tools, the brush literacy rate into radial gradients, as we mentioned. So in the filmstrip, we're going to click on the image of the farm. It's the farming or distance on. It's a hazy form, such as image storage here. And you see that this image is indeed quite hazy. So if you're falling law you want and should have the effects panel has expanded. So we'll click on that. Now we'll driven behaves slider to the right, a Nora's thought that pays begin to disappear as I drag. I'm going to drag it to about 65 or so. So let's take a look at them before. Now for this image. So backslash key before, after, before, after. So we can see that it did bring out the blue zone a lot more in this image. So let's see, we can now turn that down a little bit. For that, we're going to use the linear gradients tool. We're going to go into detail with that tool in a later video, but I'm just gonna give you a little sneak peek of it. So you'll want to click the linear gradients tool icon, that's this icon right here. Can also tap the L key on your keyboard, so I'll click it. So what we're gonna do is drag the Exposure slider to the left to ABAB minus1. And of course, this isn't doing anything to the image yet because we haven't added the gradient effect to our image and we're gonna do that in just a moment. So by minus one, this reduces the exposure or BIP, mighty richard other Saturation just a little bit, maybe two minus nine or som. Now I want to click at the top center of the image and then drag down. And we're going to drag down about a third of a way. So next we're going to greatly the haze slider to the right to about 2013, it was D. Hayes only from the area of the image within the graduated filter, this top part of the graduated filter. And again, we brought all those blues against only reduce some more of those blues. So we're gonna do the saturation slide or a little more to the left, two above minus torrent. Here's our members minus 25. And we can see that I've got did remove this saturation from the blues. So let's take a look a little before and after this image, civil tap the backslash, cuter keyboard again, before, after, before, after. So quite a difference. And that is D Hayes. 43. Using Clipping Indicators: We've already seen in previous videos that we can lighten our darken an image using the Exposure slider. However, if your drag this slider or the whites are black slider too far in either direction, you'll begin to lose details. And this is called clipping, which occurs when you have loss of detail in a photo. That is why it's a good idea to turn on Lightroom's clipping warning indicators so that you can see when you're destroying the details, when the clipping warning indicators or activity can easily spot the areas where you're, you're losing detail. So let me switch to the edits pays and would have the E key on my keyboard. And then I'm going to expound the lightest panel. So you tap the J key to turn on Clipping Indicators. And it'll say show clipping. Or I can choose View at his tools and then choose show clipping from the menu. He can also tell them clipping is turned on because the two little boxes on the upper corners of the histogram I also lips. So for tough the J key again to turn it off can see that these are no longer selected and now they're both selected, letting us know that Clipping Indicators or on. So when the clipping warning indicators are active, you can easily spot the areas where you're losing detail as you drag to the left, decreasing exposure, blue error is when people begin to appear in the image where you're losing detail. Alternatively, if I drag to the right and increase the exposure, red color appears of the point where you began to have loss of detail in your writes notes that when you have lots of details in an image, they don't tend to print a very well, sorry, you'll want to turn on the ecliptic indicators. Have you plan up sending your image to a printer. So let's pick another image from there after cleavage of the tiger, and they'll drag the Exposure slider to the left. Notice that as we do, bits of blue begin to appear. The further I'd rigor to the left. So these are all the areas of the image where we're losing detail. And again, same thing to the, to the right. So here we're losing detailing or whites in those errors are filled in with red. So that is using Clipping Indicators in Lightroom. 44. Using Auto Tone: Okay, so this video is just a quick little tip. When you're starting out with an image you might want to try and Lightroom's auto adjustment feature, which adjusts the various layers in the editor pain. Sometimes Lightroom does really well, are guessing the optimal settings. Other times not so much. So to do so you click the Aalto link and that's on top of the editors paying here. And this will apply automatic settings to your image. And don't worry if you don't like the way it looks, you can always press Command Z if you're using a Mac or Control Z if using a Windows. To undo the last adjustment, though, you'll most likely need to customize the corrections afterward. Auto does provide a good starting point. And many folks like to begin without Oh, and then further correct from there. And so if you're following along, you'll want to click the image of the red flower in that film strip. If you don't see a district, the scroll bar, the filmstrip until the image is visible, then you click on that image to display it. So the first thing I want to do is remove all adjustments that I've made to this image. So I'm gonna choose photo recent edits from the medium. And this reversed the image to its original state when it was first brought into Lightroom. So now we want to display there that's paints or if it's not displayed to, I tap the E key on your keyboard. And again the key toggles the display of the edit pane. And now let's take the auto budget on top of their pain and we can see that it automatically applied adjustments to the image that we, if we can see all of these sliders or been adjusted and applied some vibrance saturation adjusted every one of those sliders in light panel. So yes, so as you can see, this funders are no longer in the 0 position. So let's take a look at it before and after this image soil tap the backslash Kynar keyboard before, after, before, after. So yes, the ultrasound is a good place to begin editing your images. 45. Adjusting White Balance: The white balance setting allows you to adjust the overall color temperature of your photo. You use the way Darwin's sliders or to compensate for the color of the light at the time the image was taken. Oftentimes you may wish to add a warming or cooling effect to the photo. And in fact, many photographers adjust the white balance first before making any other adjustments to their images server formula. We're gonna be working with the image of the red flower in that image right here to the left of the lily of my screen. So we're going to double-click it to open or to detail view. And if the edits paint is a display, we wanted to tap the E key on our keyboard. The white dots option is located in the colour panel that's right on top here we see the white poets drop-down list. So to change the white balance, you click the drop-down list to display all of the white balance presets that you can sets receipt. We have Daylight, Cloudy Shade, Tungsten Fluorescent Flash or custom on top period of a couple additional ones I Shot, which is basically the default white balance at the time the image was taken. And then auto in which Lightroom will try to guess the optimal white Belen settings. Now knows that these presets here will only be available if her photo. Is it raw format? If you've processed through your images are JPEG, the only options available will be As Shot, Auto and custom. Before I adjust the white balance as though I went to big some exposure adjustments subjected to light panel, to expand that panel. And I'm going to drag the exposure to the right to about 60 to boost it up a little bit. There's a little bit dark. So right there about 0.16, that looks a little bit better. So let's click on the color panel and then we'll click on the white balance drop-down list, alleged choose cloudy from the list to see what the image would look like with that precept applied. Once you do that preset is applied to the image. We can see the other options here to daylight kinda has a blurring effect to the image of cooling effect. Tungsten. We don't want that, I think will stick with clarity. That looks pretty good. Many people also like to use the white pawns Tool, which is this little eyedropper on top of the panel. To do so you click the tool and then hover over the image. And as you move you see that little circle that's following my cursor. This lets us know what the white balance would look like if we apply it to that location of the image. Ideally, you want to click on a neutral tone such as light gray or white. And when you click, the temperature of the image will automatically adjust. So for this, I'm going to use a different image and I'm scrolled through my filmstrip until I see the image of the squirrels. Let's double-click the squirrel image and we'll click on the white balance tool to activate it. And I'm going to click anywhere on the squirrels for, as you mentioned, a light gray color is a good a bar, a neutral color. So let's click on that and then adjust the white balance accordingly. So let's look at the before and after, before, after, before, after. Let's try it again and let's try it. A little darker area that screws for who that's too bright. And we're gonna do that by tapping Command Z or you would use Control Z freezing windows. Lets try this area or a chair. That works a little bit better. Of course, you could also just drink the temp and Tint sliders until the image looks the way that you want to trigger the slider to the left as green to the image, whereas gradient to the right eye, it's magenta. That's from the Thames slider dragging it to the right warms the image by adding yellow to the image and dragging to the left, cools the photo by adding blue. So again, this all depends on the luck that you're going for. So that is adjusting a large balance in Lightroom. 46. Changing the Color in a Photo: You can change the individual color in a photo from the Color Mixer, which is located in the colour panel. So but tough the economic keyboard to display the Elements pane and the car mixer is right on the bottom here, uses not expanded. So this is what it looks like by default. And to view the colored mixture it is click on the Color Mixer to expand that panel. But yeah, by default to colored mixture sliders are hidden so you need to click on the penalty for expanded. So for me here you could adjust the hue, saturation, and luminance of a specific color in your image. To do so, you select the dot for the color that you want to modify. Let's say I want to do about it for the yellows in this image and their new drag, one of the three sliders, Hughes such rich, no luminance until the images, the way that she'll want, the hue slider changes the actual shade of the color. Saturation increases or decreases. The intensity of the color and luminance changes the brightness and darkness of the color. So I could choose how saturated or while my yellows to be a good change the shape of the yellows here we got more of almost pinkish reddish, more of a greenish referred Greg to the right to adjust to a different color, click the dot for that color, and then drag the appropriate sliders. Now let's click the adjust dropped almost here. And we see we have three other options, hue, saturation and luminance. These are exactly the same slider was as in the colour area. They're just displayed in a different way. So let me click the hue slider here. So when the hero area we adjust the hue is of a specific color. Sort of wanted to adjust the hues of the yellow. I would drag the yellow slider to the left or right. And again, we see the same effect. Now we saw when in the colour area. Likewise, it could switch to saturation. And again, I drag this slider for the color hue saturation. I wish to modify and bring the slider to the left to right. You really don't have any reds in this image, so nothing really adjusts, but I could reduce my saturation of a yellow and likewise desaturated the yellows. And the last option here is luminance and again, changing the brightness and darkness of the yellows primary receptor. My color mixture options here, let me switch back to you. Now it's also interesting to note is that if you look at the individual sliders, we see that they are colored, letting us know how the color will change as we DRE, see here for the yellows here we see orange to the left side of the slider and greens to the right. And this lets us know that as your drag to the left, the oranges and the image will intensify. Again as we drink to the right, the hue becomes more green and more greens are added to the image. So let's work on this together. So we're going to work on the image of the Lewis. And we went to scroll in our filmstrip until we see the image of the white allele. And it says image here. So let's click it. And now we want to press the command to keystroke combination of using a Mac or control tool if you're using Windows, then if we recall, this is the command to display the color panel, cabbage to collect Pamela's displayed. You want to expound the color mixture by clicking on the words con mixer. So we want to display the Hughes sections. So we take the adjusted drop-down list and choose who from the list. So now let's drag the green slider to the right to change the shape of the green silk road rigor to the right, maybe to about 48 or so. Next I want to change the saturation of similar colors of the image. So I'll click the adjust draft or list again and choose saturation. And let's change the saturation of the yellow. So I'm gonna drag the yellow slider to the left, so yellows aren't quite so poppy. So during a tube may be about minus 20 or so. Lets look at a before and after. So before, after, before, after. So we see the greens are the loop has ever adjusted, and the yellows in the flower of adjusted. Now you could also use the targeted adjustment tool, also referred to as Tet, TAT, to chase a specific color in your image. And that's just icon right up here. It looks like a little gear icon. When the tool is activated, you click directly on a color in your photo that you want to change and then drag to the left or the right to change it. So let me actually with the tool by clicking on it and we see that it's now lift. So this little pop-up bar displays. So first of all, you want to choose what you want to adjust the hue, saturation or luminance. Then you click on the item and the image that you wanna change. So we can see as I click on the image or see a little slider bar that drink the left or the right. Only that particular colour changes announced. The green slider adjusts as I drag. I'm going to undo that. So for falling or how you want to ensure that a hue is the Active Color, The adjusts drop-down list and you want to click on the targeted adjustment tools, so that is active. And then we're going to drag on the lily pad. On the right side of the image, we see a little dot next to my cursor. This lets us know the color that we're adjusting. So let's click on the image and drag to the left until the steadily powder is kind of a greenish yellow. So maybe above array there. So that will release our mountain budget. So if you look at it before and after, and before, after, before, after. So yellow colors in Lightroom are very cool. Oh, one last thing I want to mention is the hue adjustments sliders, which were recently introduced in that camera Ron Lightroom. If you're working in the linear gradient, the radio gradient or the brush, you can now selectively adjust the hue in your images. So if I click the Yes and I can display the Bush option, you see the new Who's sliders down here. So that's the hue color that you want. And then bring the slider to the left or right to increase or decrease the saturation of that color. Of course, nothing is happening now because I haven't brushed from the image. So when I brush here, you're actually brushing that he'll onto the image. Notice as I drag change the you to read, we see that color brushed on tour Lilypad. Again, I can either increase or decrease the saturation of the color. We're going to be looking at the, uh, use sliders a little bit more in upcoming lessons. But I just wanted to mention that since we were talking about colors. 47. Converting a photo to Black & White: By using the BMW but to the black and white button on top of the edit page, You can convert an image to black and white. So just click on the letters B and W, and the image is automatically converted using the default settings. So now if we look in the colour panel, we see that the car mixture is now gone, replaced by the black and white mixers sliders. So if I click on the word b, a w mixture turns down those section, we see the black and white sliders. So from this panel, you can then adjust the lightness and darkness, which is the luminance of a specific colors in the image. For example, to change the luminance of anything that's yellow, a drag the yellow soldered to the right adores the yellows and the image changes I dragged. So if I wanted to bring out, say, yellow areas of the image so that you can see them so that they're more pronounced. Could just drag this to the left here. To charities illuminance. Have anything that's red, you would drag the red slider to the left or right. Don't hover any residues in retirement the greens, I'm nervous of the green areas are the image adjust as I drag. So any of the areas that were originally agreed will be lightened or dark and as a drag to the left or right could also use the target, an adjustment Tula, we worked with this a little bit in the previous video. So just click the tool to activate it and then drag on the color that you want to change. And then all of the light colors in the image will adjust as you drag. Note whore, whether you are not selectively changing the color. That is to say you aren't changed the luminance for only the area of the image which you have clicked to targeted adjustment tool globally changes though alike colors of the image. So to say, I'm not just changing this lily pad rate here. I'm changing all of the areas, the Enbridge that are this color of green. I'm to revert to a color version of an image. Just click on the BMW button again, and that restores the image to the way it was before you apply to the black and white adjustment. So I'm going to turn those off. So let me clubs the color mixture here. So let's work on this together. And for this we're going to use the red flower image that we worked with it a previous video. And if you don't see the edit, depending on the top the E key on your keyboard to display that pain. And now we want to take the b and w budget on top of the editor pane and that converts the images template can write using the default settings. So now we can adjust the tones of the black and white image from the black and white mixture sliders. So if that's not despite the weather, click the color panel to expand it, and then click the BMW mixer to display the sliders. So I wanted to do is drink the red slighter to the right. So I'll click that slider to the right, maybe to about 45 oversaw a notice of the reds in the image are brightening as I drag yeah, about there. If you remember, there was quite a bit of purple image as well. So that's direct the purple slider. And this time I'm gonna drag to the left to darken the purple areas of the image. And it was, as I drag, those areas are darker then. But I think we'll delete it. I'm going to be minus 35 or so. So let's take a look at the before and after this image. So before, after, before, after. Now I've decided that I'd, George really likes to black and white version of this image and I'm going to revert to the color version. So I'm going to scroll all the way up to the top of the Edit PID and then click on the BMW budget and the reverse the image to the way it was before we apply to the adjustment. That is, converting an image to black and white in Lightroom. 48. Color Grading Lightroom Cloud: So I'm adding this video in after the fact, after the course has already been created because a new feature has just been introduced into Lightroom and Camera Raw. So in the latest version of the camera engine, which includes Lightroom, the split toning panel has been replaced by the color grading panel. Now in the past, you were able to apply a color tint to the shadows of the highlights in a photo. Or in other words, you are able to split apart the highlights and shadows in an image and then apply a tint to them. Part of it, the new color grading power comes the ability to apply a tint tour midtone says, Well, allowing us to really alter the mood of an image in the process. So in this way, the color grading panel is kind of an evolution of the split haunting panel. So let's see how this works. So I have an image of a red flower here on my screen and to access the color grading parallel, first expand the color plateau by clicking in their words color on the bottom of the panel here we see color grading. So let's click on it. And here we see three controls are color wheels, if you will. And the top is for tinting the mid tones. The one on the bottom left is for tinting the shadows, and the bottom right is for tinting the highlights. But the first thing we wanna do is convert this image to black and white, because an excellent use for color grading is to bring back a hint of color to the shadows, habits, and mid tones of a black and white image. So in this coil at a top of the Edit pellets or click on the BMW letters here. And now we have a black and white image. So let's go back to our color grading panel. So let's start with the highlights. So you start by clicking in the circle for the color that you want to apply. Select that, say I want to pile little, a pinkish tend to this. So I'm going to think about right here and I'll release my mouse button and notice of the little color circle remains. So we've basically locked in that color. You can change the saturation of the color by clicking the little circle in the color wheel and dragging along the line here, we can see that I'm decreasing or increasing the saturation during a trip to outer edge increases at, while dragging towards the inner edge decreases at can also hold down the option key for using a Mac with the old key fusing Windows Azure drag. And what this does is largely to change the saturation much more slowly logos to apply more of a finer adjustment. But if I just wanted to nudge it a little bit at a time until a folder like color, I would hold out alter option. So once you've chosen your colleagues, can then during this layer underneath the color wheel to change the luminance color stores and I'm dragging to the left, I'm darkening an enlightening as I'm dragging to the right. To reset the color for a color, we'll just double-click or the center of the circle that resets the color. I'm going to go back to the little hint rows here. So we also have a little control set of the color wheel, a little colored dot. This lets us know the active color and we can change the hue of the color by clicking on the dot and dragging around the circle. And notice the color of the dot changes as I drag to let us know what the active color is. But notice that the center dots adopted the center of the color wheel, stays of the same saturation percentage. Now since we're changing their Hugh about maintaining that saturation percentage, the gimmick always turned to saturation percentage by clicking the little circle in the center than drinking again along that line. To change this saturation, I'm gonna go back to the little pinkish color and we'll add a little more saturation. And so on top of our color grading panel, we have a row of icons which allow for different ways of viewing the panel. The leftmost icon is the default view. This is the three-way view which displays all three colour wheels, the midtone shadows and highlights. Then from left to right we have shadows which displays only the shadows wheel. When you make any changes here, we're only making changes to the shadows in the image. And on the bottom of the penalty of a couple of sliders here we have the luminance or get were commodified the luminance of the color. We also have blending, which will blend colors more towards the shadows as you drag to the left, are more towards the highlights as you drink to the right. And balanced controls how much color to add and you can adjust it here between the shadows and the highlights. So if we wanted to add more color to the shadows, would drag him or towards the left. So we have shadows. The next icon is the midtown sir. Here we see only the mid tones could fall with those same sliders underneath. So again, modifying only the mid tones in this image. The third is the highlights. So now it modifying only the highlights in the photo. The last icon is global, which is applying all three of them at the same time. So now I'm, I'm a modified V as shadows and highlights how wines and the global adjustment allows for the least amount of flexibility. So as you can see with the color grading panel could really create some interesting cinematic effects, such as Retro or across processing. And this is one of those features are Lightroom with which you can really have a lot of fun experimenting. 49. Using the Brush Tool: In this video, we're going to work with using the brush tool and the brush tool, which is called the adjustment brush in Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw allows you to selectively modify specific areas of your image by painting on the adjustments, by clicking and dragging. What's nice is the flexibility of this tool in that you can make a free form selection where you're not constrained to a specific shape like you are with a linear gradient or the radial gradient. So once you've activated the tool, the adjustment brush panel will display on the right side of your screen containing many settings. And the adjustment brush icon is right here, so forth. I can from the top, she could either click on the icon or attempt to be key on your keyboard to toggle the display of this tool. So right now we have the Adjustment Brush parallel and we see all the various liars because set. So how this works is that you drink the sliders for the adjustments you want to make. Then who drink over the areas of the image that you want to modify it. As you drag over portions of the image, the settings will then be painted on over those areas. I've, after you've finished painting, you can further adjust the area by moving the sliders in the adjustment panel. And it will only affect the area that you painted. And we can see that I've brought it down my exposure. And I'll bring down the highest a little bit as well. Of course nothing has happened to this image yet because we average painted. Before parenting Him, I want to adjust your brush size. And if you do so from the size slider here, Greg, or to the left or right, you can see that my brush size increases or decreases as I drag. But I prefer to use the keyboard shortcuts. So the right bracket key increases the size of the brush. And the left bracket key decreases the size of the brush. So the quick way to modify your brush size, and then you paint over the areas of the image that you want to adjust. And Nora says, I paint because I turned on the exposure using those exponents writers. I'm turning down only the exposure on the areas that I'm pinching on. Now after I painted, they could adjust further by dragging the slider to the left or right. And we see that it's only affecting the areas on which I've painted. And I can add some additional adjustments as well by just dragging the appropriate sliders in the panel. And again, it will only affect on an area that I've already painted on, not say accidentally painted over this area here by mistake. And that's an odd or wanted to, I didn't want to do that. So I can undo that by clicking the Eraser icon on top of the panel here. Dragging or the adjustment though L12, our race, and that will remove the adjustments made to the image. So notice that as I move my mouse cursor over the image here, a little blue dots are peers, or this is a pin. So whenever you've got an adjustment to an image, a pin appears in the center of the adjustment area. You can actually move the adjustment area RON, by dragging the pin. But we don't want to do that. We're going to keep that as there was. This lets us know that there's one adjustment, one brush adjustments applied to this image. What's nice about this tool, however, is that you can add more than one adjustment to our photo. For instance, you might want one adjustment to add warming for specific area of room image and another to change the saturation on an item and another to adjust the clarity on a different part of your image to add a new pin. Just click the plus symbol on top of the panel here, and then make your adjustments using the sliders. And I'm, I want to reset the sliders and maybe I only want to modify the exposure of the center of the flower. So I'm gonna drink the exposure die on my brush size, little smaller by tapping the left bracket key on my keyboard and then paint over those areas of the image small, we see that I have two dots, two pins on this image. And you could tell which part is active by the white dot in the center of the pin. Let's record darker this even further by dragging the Exposure slider to the left or to the right, make it super glory. And again, it's only affecting this area of the image that I painted when this adjustment was active. And you can just select a different adjustment pin by just clicking directly on the pin. And now that pin is selected to delete an adjustment selects the pin, and again we can see the white dot. And as we get started with this pin is active, then we'll tap the delete key on my keyboard. And now that pin is removed, that adjustment is removed from this photo. There are also several hidden sliders that you can display it by clicking the disclosure triangle to the right of the word size, the little size box here, you can just click on that and we see we have feather flow and density. So the farther area, right now we see a set of 100, which is soft, and you can also drag it to the left for a harder feather. And this is helpful when you're brushing up against an edge of the object and you want the edges to be really pronounced. Assault feather is better if you wanted to blend your adjustments in with the rest of your image. The flow controls the rate at which the adjustment is applied to the photo as you paint. So if I drag flow to a 100, the maximum adjustment is applied as a page. If I set it to a lower MOD, like Mary 22-23 years saw, and then paint the group. The adjustment is painted on gradually a little at a time. So it builds up the effect slowly as you drag over the area. I'm gonna delete this pin here. I'm going to leave this period here. I'm just giving you an example of how the flow works, which I'm gonna drag the exposure all the way to the left. And I'm gonna drag over the white areas of the image here. And the center of the flower. Knows another flow scepter 23 sorts applying that adjustment very gradually each time I drag it, applies it a little bit more. So now let's sort it all the way to a 100. Now let's drag over the image and note as it applies it immediately, as if he were painting over it with a paintbrush. So yes, well, that's how the flow setting works. The last thunder here is that Density slider. This limits the maximum strength of each stroke that you make. And I tend to leave this setting out of a 100. Sorry if you're brushing over the phone over your photo and nothing seems to be happening. This could be because your flow, your density sliders are too low. So here if I set the flow way down here and then up drag over the image received of the settings applied very little at a time. So as I'll be barely noticeable. So if you're wondering how come this isn't working is because your floor, your density might be to love. So let me reset these sliders. I'm going to delete this and swats work on this together, a bit server falling along. We're going to work with the image of the Dragon Flag, and that's there's image right here. So we'll click it. And next you want to tap the beak key on your keyboard to display the brush panel. This activates the brush on the indiscriminate is all of the brush sliders on the right side of our screen. So we're going to get either click this, I come the fourth lecture from the top or tap at B. So I've just started to buy regularly Exposure slider to the right. And of course nothing is changing yet because we haven't yet pages on any adjustments. And I think I can increase the contrast as well. So I'll drag that paper to about 11, and I wanna set my brush size to maybe both three or so. Again, if you use a left to right bracket keys or drag the size slider manually. Now let's paint all over the body of our fly a couple of times. So we'll drag and page and notice the body lightning. Let's see where do I have my I want to double check mice, feather and flow so that slow at 50. So as adding on a little bit of time, quite not all at once. And we can see the body of the fly brightening. Let me click on this area over here. And now I think I'm going to increase the saturation. I'm gonna, I'm gonna make this a little more for saturated or intense, the red colour for drink or to the right. And we can see that as I drag, it increases a saturation. Mostly I've migrated to the left that will remove the saturation area of the image, but I want to increase it. So I'll drag it to above, let's say about 60 or so. And secondly, before it, after this image, before, after, before, after. Why handy feature which you might want to turn on when making adjustments is the auto mask option, and that's located at the bottom of the brushing or ear. And again, if you don't see that, you would click that disclosure triangle next to the size slider. So in auto Mask is activated, adjustments are restricted to the inner circle of your brush, allowing you to be much more precise in your adjustments. So as you drag where they keep the plus symbol away from areas that you don't want to paint on. If we wanted to see all of the areas that you've painted over. If the old key on your keyboard to show the mask overlay. If you want to remove all blush adjustments, tap the icon in the upper-right corner of the brush paid. That says I kinda rate here. Vishal will remove all brush adjustments that you've made to the image. So I think that about does it for us. So I'm gonna tap the Enter key on my keyboard to close the brush panel and apply our changes. 50. Using the Linear Gradient: A favorite tool for many people, especially landscape photographers, is though linear gradient is 2l. And this is the same tool as the graduated filter in light from classic and camera. And it's located right over here in the right panel bar that says I kinda rates. Can also tap the L key on your keyboard to activate it. So it's a linear gradient tool. You can edit a specific part of your photo, recreating the same effect that you'd get when using a neutral density graded filter in your camera, selects the adjustment brush tool. You can brush on changes in gradient. This tool is excellent for lightning or darkening the sky, as well as adding a little bit of blue twin, otherwise drab sky. So once the tool is activated via linear gradient panel, appears on the right side of your screen containing many sliders that you can use, your drag the sliders to where you want them. Then you click on an image where you want the greater to begin, then drag downward. As you drag the settings are applied to the photo. And if we wanted to ensure that your gradient is straight, hold down the Shift key when you drag this constraints at two or 90 degree angle. And if you wanted to drag out from the center of the graded rather from the beginning or the end prints that he would hold down the ALT key for using Windows or using a Mac and then Drake, the gradient of integral then extend out equally from both sides of your beginning part. So if you're folded a lioness click that image of the rocks and the water again, and that's this image right here. So drag to the left or right. Didn't your filmstrip until you see that image? And we want to clip the linear gradient tool to activate it. So what I'm going to do is add some coolness from blue to the image. So I'm going to drag my temps tighter to the left to about minus 30 or so. And if you wanted to add words to the imager, yellow to the image that he would drag the slider to the right. But why he wants to do is add a little blue to the sky here. And I think I'm gonna decreased exposure of bits all during the exposure to the left to maybe about 1.25, I think. Okay, so now that I've adjusted my settings, are ready to apply my filter. And just like with the brush, you could also tweak these settings later on after you've applied the filter or add additional settings. So to apply the filter, I'm gonna click at the top center of the image here, then dreg downward to above the top of the trees I think, or maybe to about here. And again, we can hold down the Shift key and that ensures a street gradient. I'm going to release my mouse button. And there's applies the linear gradient filter to the top of our image. So as we can see here, the filter is at full strength on the top when dragon downward and then it graduates slowly as we Drake, I don't worry if the effect is quite what you want. Again, as we mentioned, can always adjust the sliders after the fact until the image is the way you want. And also like we saw with the brush tool, once you've added a filter, a little pin appears on your image and you can click this pen and drag it around to different errors of reimaging of who aren't and extend the reach of the gradients are. We can see that now it's covering the entire sky. And I think I might want to go to about there. Similar to the brush, you can apply more than one gradients to the image. For instance, you might want one gradient to darken the entire sky and another to change the saturation and the yet to another to adjust the clarity. So to do so you clicked a leftmost icon here on top of the linear gradient panel. Or you can tap the Enter key on your keyboard to think N for new and they're dragging your image to apply the second gradient. So let's add a new linear gradients. So I'm gonna click the icon here. This time I'm going to click at the bottom center of the image. I'm gonna drag upwards to about the top of the tree line here. And again, I'm gonna hold down the shift key to ensure a smooth gradient. And then I'm going to release my mouse button. So now we see we have two pins here. This is the agreement that we've just added, and this is the first gradient should always tell which great executive is the one with the white dot in the center and his clicker the pin to switch to that great answer. If I wanted to make some initial adjustments to the sky grid and click at the top pen. And now that pen, and now we see this Pinto has a wide gardens and now it can make additional adjustments in the panel if I so choose, can also brush on the filter to select an areas of your photo. First Trinidad activate a PIN by clicking on it and then click on the Brush. I kind of just Centre icon and there's ROW three icons. So do you want to start synthesizer your brush? And you could also set the feather flow and density. We've talked about that in previous videos a bit. Then you drag over the error is of the image to which you want to apply the filter. Likewise, you could also erase the filter from specific portions of your image by clicking the erase tool and then dragging over the areas of the image that you want to erase. This will remove the gradient from that part of the image. So let's work with this a little bit. So we'll take the brush icon again, that's, that's middle icon. What I wanted to do was erase the filter from specific areas of the image, snark and paint over on the rocks. Because see that the filter see the rocks darkening as I drag. And they can see the gradient is not being applied to those rocks. So if I decided I did not watch any of the gradient filter to be on the rocks. I can erase it by clicking the erase tool and then dragging over the rocks and now removes any of the adjustment from that era, the image, image over which I'm dragging. So let's take a look at the before and after of his image. So we have before, after, before, after. So quite a difference here. Well, one last thing I wanted to mentioned, actually, we've talked a little bit about this in previous videos, but there's a recent feature in Lightroom, which is a huge adjustment feature. And this is located right down here. And this is available in the linear gradient, radial gradients and the brush tool. And what this does is adjust the hue for every color that should have painted. So previously, adjusting the hue is only available as a global adjustment from the solar panel. But now it's been added to these panels as well. And to use the tool, you drag the arrow to the color that you want to switch and then you paint that's not degrades the atop gradient here. And that strength is hue slider our bet. And notice that as I drag, the color changes have a drag to the right. We start getting into our magenta isn't purples. Drag it to the left, drag more towards a green. So if I wanted to adjust the blues of the shear in a blue of his image, I can just drag this hue slider accordingly. And you also could modify the saturation of that adjustment as well. There's a little checkbox under needs a tool called US fine adjustment to one that's checked the huge changes considerably slower allowing you to more finally tuned the adjustments. So notice as I drag is changing very little as I drag. So allow you to find that perfect shade of blue if her so trues. So again, before, after, before, after. So. But that is using the linear gradient tool in Lightroom. 51. Cropping a Photo: One thing that you'll probably be doing a lodge in Lightroom is cropping your photos with the crop tool, you can isolate a area of an image. I remove unwanted portions from the top, bottom, and sides of it. And the crop tool is located over here in the right panel bar, and that's the second icon from the top can also tell it to see key on your keyboard to activate the crop tool. And once the crop tool is activated, you can just drag and any of the crop handles and that's used little handles on the upper corners and in the center of the image, then drag inward our up and down to crop the image. Now notice right now as I drag, it's constrained to a specific aspect ratio. But if I wanted to apply a free form crap to this image that we're just click the aspect ratio drop-down list and then choose Custom from the list. And now I can crop this image any way I want and I am not constricted or constrained toward the aspect ratio. So let me undo all that. Well, so one subject crop to an image I'll need to do is tap the Enter or Return key to confirm my crop. But now the image is cropped, but I'm going to undo that and go back to the way a wise. So let's work on this together. So for falling along, you want to click on the image of the dragon fly. And this is image right here. And we'll activate the crop tool rather than a click of the Ico tap to see key on our keyboard to activates a tool. And we wanted to make sure that the aspect ratio is set to custom. So this gives us total freedom in our crop. So let's drag this in so that the boundary is near the edge of the inset. Two of the instructors of the lower right corner, little tap the Enter key on my keyboard. And now the image is cropped. Now if you need to constrain your crop to a specific aspect ratio, just choose the desired value from the aspect ratio drop-down list. So let me type the C key on my keyboard again. And notice that this error, though we cropped, is still here. So that means we could always go back to the way a was once we've cropped an image. So in this way, cropping is totally non destructive. But as I was talking about the aspect ratio, so you can choose the desired aspect ratio from the list here we see all the different options available. These are all aspect ratio presets that you can choose. So once you choose an extra aspect ration from the list, then that's crop ratio is no locked. So I will always crop in this racial, but I can remove the aspect ratio from the image by again by clicking this little lock icon over here. Now that brings us back to our customer crop and we can now crop anywhere we want again. So you ever need a crop in eight by ten or five by seven aspect ratio, just choose that from the list and then drag the crop handles to trim those portions of the image. So it's worth mentioning at this point that when you crop an image in Lightroom, you're not actually re-sizing the photo here are only cropping to an aspect ratio. You don't resize a photo until you're ready to export it or print it. If your crop co isn't displayed when again trumped the C-C here. And a keyboard where you want to do is revert to the original state of the image before the crop. So to do so, we click the reset To icon that's on the top of the top right corner of the crowd panel here. And that resets our crop tool. It's pre crops state. So let's change the aspect ratio to a four by 58 by ten. So we'll choose that from the aspect ratio dropped TO list. Now we'll click on the crop hammer on the bottom right corner of the image and dreg upward until the right mark key border is just outside the dragon fly shadow. So about right here. Another helpful feature is the ability to add a crop overlay to your image, which is a grid that Lightroom places over your photo to assist you in cropping. So right now we can see that I have the grid applied, which is the rule of thirds overlay. And I can show or hide this part temporary the old key on my keyboard and then hides it, brings it back. So I think that about does it and I think I'm happy with the way this crop is. So I'm gonna tap the Enter or Return key on my keyboard to confirm the crop. And again, you can always activate the crop panel and then click the Reset button to revert to the original state of the image. If you decide later on that you're not happy with the crop. Or here's a quick little tip. If you tap the executing your keyboard, this toggle back and forth adrenal horizontal and a vertical crop so that that can be a helpful depending on your situation. And notice that I can also add Reagan's side of the crop and rearranged that way. But I'm gonna, I want the shallow term be part of the crop as well. So Reap there. And that's a more Rwanda and they'll type Enter to confirm the crop. 52. Straightening a photo: Now if your image is a little bit off kilter crooked, he can use the strengthens tool in the crop panel to fix it with one click. So let's activate the crop panel. So I'll tap the C key on a keyboard. Or if you click this sucker die cut from the top and the right paddle bar. And if you click on the word auto, it automatically tries to straight in the image. So let me undo that. And this is excellent for trying to straighten the horizon, sort of the filmstrip. Let's click on the image of the moon rising over the water. And that's his, his image right here. And we'll activate the crop tool by tapping the C key on our keyboard and click on auto. We can see that Lightroom automatically tried to adjust the horizon to what it considered to be straight. And it can also manually straight in a photo by moving your cursor outside of the crop handles and then dragging left or right. And notice that as I drag we get a little grid. A little grid appears on your screen and that can help us a line the error was of the images. There'll be want to be straight with the lines. If you prefer. You can instead rid the straighten slider to the left or right until the images the way that you want. And again, notice that as I drag is pretty much has the same effect of clicking outside of the image and dragging the grid appears on the screen and then our image tilts to the left or the right. And again, we can line it up with the grid to help us straight in the image. But I think I'm gonna go on to the auto adjustment. So I'm gonna click on the word odd dome, and Lightroom does a pretty good job of string in the image. I think. Again, if you don't like the results, you could always research by going back into the crop panel and then clicking that reset icon. Then we'll reset the streaming effect to the image. But know that this will also recent ANY cropping that you've done as well. So the recent I kinda the crop power is an all or none proposition. So once you click Reset it recessive to the original crop and straighten state of the image. So once you're happy with the way the straightening affective looks, they just tap the Enter or Return key on a keyboard to confirm the crops. So I will do that. And our image has now been straightened. 53. Using the Healing Brush Tool: The Healing Brush Tool allows you to remove censored dots and other spots from your images. You can even remove a telephone wires from photos. So this tool automatically samples the pixels of the area near where you want to repair and then matches the target area to the surrounding area. So this tool is best in areas where there's consistent color and texture. And the tomb was located on the right panel bar as this third icon from the top, it resembles a little Band-Aid. So I'm gonna click on the icon to activate it. And this displays the Healing Brush panel. But let's work on this together a little bit softer falling along, you'll want to click on the window with the yellow reflection. So let's drag our scroll bar on the film strip to the right and assist image ridge here with the global reflection in that we can see we have a plethora of sponsor this image. And I will tap the H key. And the H key is the keyboard shortcut for the Healing Brush Tool. Soul. When you activate the Healing Brush Tool, R&B southern Hadoop panel displays on the right side of our screen. This paint has two modes, clone and heal. So you click the drop down list. I can switch between the two modes. Most of the time you'll use the heel brush and that seems to work the best, which is useful for fixing small errors or the image. What Claude will do is sample an area of an image that replaced a selected area with that area. What he'll does is it looks surround all the areas for like pixels of the image and then does a meld with the area that you want to fix. So in this way, it intelligently matches the texture, color, and shading of new by areas. So if I had clicked on an area of image here, you can see that it's good to sample this area and malware that we want to fix with the selected era, I can change the error just by dragging to a different location in the image. Server doesn't fix it the way though you want, you could adjust it until it looks the way that you like. And I'm going to cancel that. So again, you are synthesizing, airbrushed, just like we've done in previous videos. And you can either drink the size tighter or use the left or right bracket keys to increase or decrease the size of your brush. Then click on the area that you want to fix. Star, as we saw just a moment ago, Lightroom displays the tool overlays on the screen the original occasion and the sampled location and the sample location. The second location here is that which Lightroom is using to heal. If you don't see these overlays, you want to tap the old key on your keyboard to toggle the display of them. So again, if you're not happy with the results, just drag the tap malaria to the correct location by clicking on the circle and then just drag it. Can also tap the forward slash key on your keyboard to have legend. Try again using a different area. So notice if I tap the forward slash, it switches areas. And every time I tap T4 slash key if it attempts of different area. So the clone brush, what this does is makes a duplicate of a specific area of the image. So if I selected this array here, and that's going to do is you replace the source area by this sample area. So for instance, if I wanted a novel there could drag the overlay over though not we can see now and not just displayed in our source area. So again, I could just move this area around on the screen until I find a sampler that unlike, and then tap the return or enter key to confirm the clone. And I'm going to reset this soldier falling along. We want to ensure that the drop-down list reads heel. So we'll click the volt drop down list and choose heel. And I want to change the size of my brush, some atop the right bracket key to increase the size of my brush nothing. You'll want it to be about 75. I can see that the breast size displays in the little box over here at 75. You can also just drag the slider to the left to right until the sizes the way you want. And I wanted to ensure that both feather and opacity are set to 100. And I wanted to remove this knothole rate here, replace it with another area for image from a drink over the knothole. And that went another early image is selected and here's our overlay, and this is our sample area that will tap the return or enter key at a keyboard. Let's do the same thing with a nod, told them the next board down below. So we'll select that and then I'll return or enter on our keyboard. Now here see adjustments. It doesn't look natural, especially when you're working with portraits, tried regularly a passive the slider to the left of the tarantella target area looks the way that you want. So I had the feature with the Healing Brush Tool is visualized spots and this is option right down below here on the panel. And what this does is it displays all of the spots in your image, especially the ones that are hard to see. Now it doesn't work so well in this image because there are a ton of spots and his image, and I'll give this a try. And some of the images that I might help you find some of those hard to see areas. As we can see, it creates a black and white version of the image, making it easier to find those that wanted spots. So I'm going to uncheck the box to remove that. Now, often it's dirt or dust on our camera sensor that creates spots. This is the case that you might have this same spotters spots on every single image taken during or shoot. Now sure, this hybrid to you, you could fix them all using the synchronized feature. So first remove all the spots in one of the images, and this would be the same as spot that's on all of your images. Then you click the little three dots menu, right kind of the right panel bar and choose, choose Edit Settings to copy. Sorry, here you choose what settings you wanted to copy to another image or would I want to do is only copy the heel. So I want to deselect everything. Then I want to select the check box next to the tools. Click little disclosure triangle. And they weren't to uncheck everything except from the box next to heal. And then I choose copy. So then I would choose the image that contains the identical spot that I want to remove. Click the three.me again, then choose paste at its settings. And that would paste those same at its settings from the first image to the second. But I'm going to undo that because I don't have any spots on this image. So tough command-and-control z2 and do that. So as we can see, this is also a good way to copy author or edit settings that you've applied to an image, to other images. So for example, if all of your images we're taking the same light, you can set the white balance in one image and I'll click the Menu icon, click choose Edit settings to copy, and then de-select everything except for white balance. And you can copy that and then paste that to the image that suffers from the same light issue. So this is a very quick way of fixing the same issue and multiple images quickly without having to edit each photo individually. So that is using a Healing Brush Tool that Lightroom a quick way of removing unwanted dots from your photos. 54. Making Lens Corrections from the Optics panel: Sometimes the photos we take might have fringes of green or red along the edges. This is called chromatic aberration. And unfortunately, this fly off to it isn't easy to detect. And you might not notice it until you are ready to print the image at a 100% or zoom in really close on the photo. You can fix chromatic aberrations from the optics panel in the Editor pane. The optics paddle is this panel right here. So if you're following along and what a tug to make sure that the pain is active. But chapter the E key on your keyboard that we'll click on the word optics, and let's click on a different image service. Click on the image of the crooked building, that'll be this image right here. Now there are two types of chromatic aberration, lateral or axial. If you have two different color fringes of purple and green that appear on the opposite sides of your image that you have a lateral chromatic aberration. And this can be fixed by clicking the remove chromatic aberration checkbox, rage hair in the optics panel. So let's check that to activate it. Now if you have a halo of purple or green that you have axial chromatic aberration. To fix this, use the fringe slider and the eye dropper tool and as little doodle tool to the right here of the colored dots. So first you click on the dot for the car there to watch her remove, whether it's green or purple. You can also fine tune it by clicking Greg and the sliders here at the bottom of the panel. Click the eye dropper, and then click on the areas that you want to remove. And he can drink the amount slider up or down to adjust that further. So the amount allows you to modify the strength of the adjustment, whereas the hue allows you to change the range of colors that are to be modified. So just show what the trick with this is that just drag the sliders until the desired effect is attained when I want to receive this, because we don't really have that issue in this particular image. Now for images distorted or if there is any lens vignetting, which means if those dark areas are on the edge of your image created by the camera, you can fix this by using the distortion I'd been getting sliders and they're headed until you click the mil lens correction checkbox, then the sliders will display it. If they don't click the little left predict disclosure triangle to the right of the words enabled lens correction to display those sliders. And electron should automatically display the make, model and profile of her camera and lens. And if it doesn't just click on the camera make here on the panel, who's a drop-down list and then choose the correct camera model and profile from the drop-down lists. So as we can see, this image was taken with an Apple iPhone version five. And yes, this is an older image. So yes, if your image suffers from a lens vignetting or distortion and with a greater distortion correction slider to the left or right until the image looks the way you want. Said goes for Vedanta, the trigger to the left or right to move those dark areas of the image that replaced them with a camera. But I'm going to reset the optics panels are molto by ALT key on my keyboard. That click Reset optics. And the image is back to the way it was when we started. So that is using the optics paddle in Lightroom. 55. Fixing Perspective Problems: Perspective problems occur when an image comes out tilted or skewed, like we can see this image on the screen. This is especially common in architectural images or photographs containing vertical lines. The operate feature in the geometry panel and it says power right over here. And the edit pane on the bottom of the Adams Paine can help fix those images with horizontal or vertical perspective distortion. Server formula. You want to click on the image of the cricket building in your film strip. So you were to scroll along in the filmstrip, returnees Sea, the image. And then he went to top the key on a keyboard to ensure that the N_hits period is displayed, we wanna click the word geometry to display the geometry panel. So if you click the upgrade dropped DO list, we see that we have five options available. The first is guided and, but this, you draw tour more or lines or guides on your foetal along something that should be straight to customize the correction, Aalto will correct both horizontal and vertical distortion, and this setting price to preserve as much of the original image is possible and often provides the effect that you're looking for US level to fix Horizontal Distortion or vertical to fix Vertical Distortion. Though be aware that this can sometimes create a stretching effect, but this is usually good for trying to fix it off kilter horizon. So last here is full, which is a combination of level, vertical and auto. And this can sometimes create tuck some strange results because it's trying to correct everything. So yeah, just to keep that in mind. So let's use the auto option here, so we'll click that in the list. So our level knows the image, but notice that we have some white areas around the edges of the image. So if this happens after a perspective change, you can try clicking a constrained crop checkbox and the bottom of the panel here, what that does is crops ThingImage down to those white areas that will left over after prospective adjustment. But of course, keep in mind that God does crop out errors or the image. Let's play around with some of these other options to see what they do is just hold the ALT key for using Windows Option key fusing matter. Then click resets geometry. That's again, click the upper-right rhabdo list, and this time we're going to choose full. So you can see this filled the image up to our entire screen almost. And we end up cutting out some of the Left errors of our building. That's try level. And this level is LTE image and does a fairly good job. Recent this once again. So hello, the option chemo click, we said geometry. Let's go back to the outdoor adjustments. So which keeps a dropped holistic energies on her own, which does pretty good. So for more manual adjustments, you can always drag the sliders, the geometry sliders, until it perspective and the images the way that you walk around and check the constraint crept checkboxes. And I'm gonna drag the X offset slider a little bit to the right till there's an equal amount of space between the left and right edges of the image, maybe more to about four. So again, we ended up with a little white area in the bottom of contravariant much, let's click Theia constraint crap checkbox crops to image to remove that white area struggling in the horizontal slider again to the left to try and fix some of the distortion. That doesn't look too bad. Let's do before and after this image, before, after, before, after. And again, I would spend a little more time to ensure that the distance between the left and right edge of the image are more even. So that gives you a little idea of how to correct it off kilter or crooked image by using the geometry sliders or geometry options in Lightroom. 56. Rotating images: If you ever need to rotate an image, you can do so from the photo menu to turn an image 90 degrees to the right, choose photo, and then click rotate right from the menu. Notice that could also use the command right bracket keystroke combination of using our math or control rights bracket of using windows. So let me click rotate right here, and I rotate 90 degrees to the right. Rotate right. This time I'll use the keystroke combination command, right bracket, you engender whose control right bracket of using windows. And then again, and the same thing with turning a photo to the left, choose photo. Rotate left on the, rotate at 90 degrees to the left, or use the keystroke combination command-and-control left bracket. So what's happened is that you can rotate images both from detail view or from grid view. So if I selected this image of them taps that GQM, a keyboard. And if I choose photo, rotate right. You see that the image has rotated to the right. So let's not do that. So to do so we tap Command or Control Z and then returns to the image to the weird was. So let's work on this together. Server falling on us, double-click on the image of the upside down and sign. And I will choose photo. Rotate right from the menu. And this rotates the photo 90 degrees to the right. By the way, could also rotate images from the crop panel. So let's tap the Sikh piano keyboard to display the crop paddle. And we have these two icons down here under the rotate and flip area. Rotate left and rotate right. So if we click on rotate right, the image is now in the proper orientation. Note that you can also mirror a photo horizontally or vertically from the crop panel. And this comes in handy if you take a picture of something containing text and the text comes in backwards, such as when you try to read texts reflected in a mirror. So this is mirroring and image horizontally, then mirroring the image vertically. So just keep in mind that these icons are here. If these issues crop up for you. 57. Adjusting Contrast using the Tone Curve: If you enjoy using the curves feature in Photoshop thing, it'll be right at home with the curved panel, which is located on the bottom of the light panel here, this y there, we'd point curve or tone curve, depending on what type of curve you have active. So the tone curve is used as another way to control the contrast and brightness of your images, which you could also accomplished by using the sliders and the light pole up above the Contrast slider, the clarity of sight or the black side or the West Side, or we'll give you the same effect. They are primarily used for adjusting the brightness and contrast in specific tonal ranges. Because many people prefer to use the sliders and the light pedal to adjust her photos. Many folks rarely if ever used the tone curve. Others, however, swear by the Tone Curve and enjoy the extra careful control that the curve offers. And it's all a matter of personal preference, though the curve can be better for fine tuning your adjustments, unlike the sliders in the light and color panels, which provide global adjustments. So let's click on the words point curve or tone curve. And depending on, on which curve you have active, you're going to click on the little grey dots here. And this is the, the point curve dot and this activates the point curve. So the right hand side of the curve workshop or highlights. And notice as I drag up the highlights brighten the dark and as I drag down the left side workshops shadows, again, we drag up in those shadows, lighten or drag down in the shadows darken. The center area of the line here, adjust the mid tones of the image. So notice as I drag up and done, the mid tones are adjusting accordingly. So to make an adjustment and you click a point on a curve and then drag up or down to change it. And ideally, you want to strive for kind of an S curve. And that's often considered to be the optimal setting. So using the curve, the point curve can come in handy for quickly bumping up highlights and pulling down shadows and an image. So once you've made a curve, you can delete it by just double-clicking on it or right click. And then choose Delete control point. If you want to completely receptor curve, just choose Reset channel that will remove all the points from the curve. So let's work on this a little bit together. So in the film strip, let's scroll until we see the image of the water through the window, and that's just the image here. And, um, ice cream is to the left of the dragon fly image. Then you want to take either the words point curve or tone curve. Again, depending on the type of curve that you have active. And we wanted to click on the gray dots to ensure that the point curve is the active curve. And that's click baby, a 1 third away from the right edge on this trig up a bit. Maybe just like so. And again, that's not a point. Maybe about a third of the way down from the left edge and then drag down. We get a nice little S curve. The considered the ideal settings. Now another way of adjusting the curve is by using a parametric curve. And this allows you to adjust specific areas or regions of the curve, highlights, lights, darks, and shadows, rather than individual points like we have here. So to display the tone curve, Click on the leftmost icon here, this row of icon and this which is to Tang curve, knows that if I click on the curve, it does not out a point. So if we move our most Pareto over the line here from left to right, it lets us know which area of the curve we're adjusting. So starting from the lower left corner, we see we have shadows as I move up. This area is the darks. The lights are the highlights and thus and thus to spray on the lower right corner of the panel here. So if you wanted to just adjust the highlights, you want to ensure that your mouse pointer is overly ohio S area, then you would click and drag cleverly. And notice that you cannot have dreg too much. So this way it does protect your image for making extreme adjustments. So here I'm just adjusted the darks, wanted to adjust the lights, drag up and down in the lights area. You can also use the sliders on the bottom instead, dragging on the curve if you're like, many people prefer to use the point curve rather than the tone curve. By the way, this curve is also referred to as a parametric curve because this curve is somewhat restrictive divide again, it does protect us from making those extreme adjustments. So again, you'll want to use whatever you're comfortable with. Now you can also click on the red, green, or blue dot. And what this does is adjust only that particular color channel. So if I'm doing the greens here, I'm only adjusting notice of yachting, agreed. And it'll kinda of a green tinge to our image. Likewise, if I click the reds, adding a red tint on top of that, I'm going to reset the green I read from. I right-click on my dot reset channel. Right click on the dot read dot reset channel. Another handy way to modify the point curve is by using a targeted adjustment is 2l. So when this tool is activated and this is the little icon in the upper right corner of the paddle. When it's activated, it'll circle moves along the tone curve as you drag over the image. So notice the meogda rates this icon here. Notice as I drag over the image and lets us know what areas of the curve we're modifying. So I could click on this Braun Color and then drag to the right of the left. And that specific tonal range will be adjusted. If you are more precise control over most cursor over the color that you want to change. We can see it. We can see the point curve were our cursor is, then we can use the up and down arrows. And that gives us a little more precise controller Norris, the point of the curve. Slowly moving as I'm tapping my arrow keys to adjust a little larger increments, hold the Shift key and then tap the up or down arrow keys. And again we can see the adjustments being made. So yes, that is using the Curve tool in Lightroom, the point curve and let Tone Curve frame. I want to play around with this a little bit and see if this is something that you might want to work with him or detail what editing your photos. 58. A Look at the Histogram: In this video, we're gonna take a look at the histogram. And the histogram is located right on top of the editor pane. And if you don't see it, hold down the command is 0. Keystroke combination if you're using a Mac, so toggle ij or control 0 if you're using Windows. So a histogram is a bar graph that provides a graphical representation of that data in your foetal. By showing the distribution of the tonal values. It shows us the darker tones on the left side of the histogram and the lighter tones on the right side of the histogram, we can see that there are more darker tones of this image than brighter. So if your drag our exposure slider to the right, we can see that the histogram then gets pushed towards the right side of the graph. It would drag to the left that the tones get pushed to the left side of the graph. The darker we get, the more the tones are pushed to the left. The histogram can also be helpful when showing us where the clipping occurs in an image. If you remember, Clippy occurs would be Lewis detail in the whites or blacks. The whites are sole bright or the darks are so dark, that detail is lost. Remember, we could turn on clipping by tapping the J key on a keyboard and then also activates the Shadows clipping on the highlights clipping on the histogram, and that's a snow at both of these are active. But if you don't want to show, let's say you only wanted to show Shadows clipping and you didn't want to show highlights. Clipping can click the little icon in the upper right corner and tells us hide Highlight, clipping. So I've done, I could bring it by some exposure all the way up and we don't see any highlights Clipping Indicators. But if I drag to the left to Shadows clipping displays once I start losing detail. But most of the time you want to keep both of these on. So I was just tap the J key to turn both both of them on. Oh, and I asked for clipping. If you'd look at my history, let me drag all the way to the right here. And then you'll use, you will end up with spikes or typical occur and you want to avoid that sort of a spike is pushed all the way to the left or right side. This lets us know that did maybe typic issues or their image and just something that they might want to take a look at. So yeah, the history and many people never even bother looking at the histogram, but it is there if you want to refer to it. 59. Synchronizing Adjustments across Multiple Images: Oftentimes you might have several photos to which you want to make the same edits. For instance, if only your four isn't a shoot were taken in this same poor lighting there. You might want to make the same exposure whites and darks adjustments to all of the images. Or maybe you discovered their job. You have a dust spot to one-year lenses on this same spot appears on olivary images. And this way you could use the Healing Brush to remove the spots from one image and then synchronize of that change to the other images that suffer from the same condition. You can easily copy the settings from one image and paste the settings toward another. So first we select the photo whose service you want to copy. So let me make it a little exposure adjustments to this image. So I drew recognizes as images being adjusted. And then we choose photo, copy edit settings. So this will copy all of the adjustments made to the image. Then you select the image that is to receive the adjustment and choose photo. Paste edit settings are the same. Adjustment is applied to this image. That is to say all of the adjustments that we've made to this yellow flower will then be applied. This purple flower phenomenon, do that. So let's work through this together. So let's select the image of this semi truck in the film strip. Then we're gonna choose Edit, Duplicate one photo and like two out of the new photo of the end of our film strip. So what I wanted to do is convert this image to black and white. So you want to display the Edit Page who was not displayed. You want to tap the E key on your keyboard to display it. Then we'll click the little b and w budget. And on top of the pane we can see there are images now, black and white. So it's just black and white version of the image still selected. I'm going to copy these settings and paste them to the other trucks image. So we'll choose photo, copy edit settings. And let's go back to that other semi truck photo, which is right here. So I will select to that and we'll choose photo, paste edit settings. Now this photo was black and white as well. Now if you want more control over the settings you want to copy and paste, you first make the adjustments to your image whose settings you wonder copied. Then we choose photo, choose Edit Settings to copy. And here we choose that which we want to copy tour and other image. So for example, I could click the left disclosure triangle here next to light. And if I wanted to wanted to copy the exposure adjustments and that's the other adjustments. I would uncheck the boxes next to those. If I made a healing a brush adjustment, for instance, maybe I removed a dust BAD uses the Healing Brush. If this was Chuck, I would uncheck Tools and select only the Healing Brush. That way if I cropped the original image at all, those changes would be copied. Just the adjustments that I've made using the Healing Brush. So again, you would uncheck everything that you didn't want to copy it only check those aspects that you did. And again, we take the disclosure triangle to display all of the available sliders in that panel. So here for the effects panel, texture, clarity, Hayes verdant, green, et cetera. So let's do some more sinking. So let's click the image of the fruit dish. So let's click on the word color to expel the color paddle. They want to ensure that there are common mixers, expanded HIV risk not click on the Color Mixer. I may want to choose a hue from the adjust dropped DO list. And let's drag the blue and the aqua slider all the way to the right to a 100%. And then we can see that that completely changes the color of all blues in the image. Now let's click the light pedal to expand that panel soils. Scroll up, click the light paddle and I'm going to drag the exposure to the left above minus 0.25. And I think I want to increase the blacks to the image. So I'm gonna drink the black slider to the left, maybe going above minus 15. So what I wanted to do here is paste a certain adjustments from the first image to the second. So what's this new image of the fruit bowl selected? I'm gonna choose photo, choose Edit Settings to copy. So I'm going to synchronize all adjustments in the light panel. So I'm gonna click the disclosure triangle. We wanna make sure that all of these adjustments are selected. Next, let's expand the colour area. And I don't want to copy already white fellows Vibrance and Saturation settings I made. I only want to copy the karmic settings, so I will uncheck those three boxes and ensure that color mix is selected. And then I'll click Copy, snob, gonna click on the image of the other food dish. And then it will choose photo, paste edit settings. And that pace all of the lights, paddle settings and the Color Mixer settings to that second image. So that is how to synchronize adjustments across multiple images. 60. Creating a Panorama: If you have several images that you want to combine to stitch together, it can use light from his panorama feature. So the first step involves selecting the images that you want to stitch together. Now whether you're shooting images that you want to later create into a panorama. You wanna try to overlap the content between them, maybe about 20 percenters. So this makes it easier for Lightroom to analyze the contents are then blend the images until one continuous image. So once you've selected your photos, you choose photo printer 4-node merge and then choose him panorama emerge from the menu. And right now that's grayed out because I don't have any image is selected. And Lightroom will display a preview of what the image looks like before actually stitch in the images together so much create a panorama. So let's tap the G key or a keyboard is switched to grid view. And we want to select the three images of the bridge here and there named bridge one, bridge two, and bridge three. Cytosolic, the first image, what are the Command key of using a Mac or Control key fusing windows and select the other two images. That's we want to choose photo, point of photo merge then Shoes panorama merged from the menu, sorry my ticket. And working. So Lightroom displays a preview of our image. So for the preview window here we have a couple of different alignment options. We can choose from spherical, cylindrical, and perspective. You might want to click on these to see which one works the best with your image. I friend them most of the time. Spherical is a one dot, dot, dot I want. As we can see, the perspective here adjusts the position of the corners of the image and a kind of created a bowtie distortion here, which often happens with this option. So let's click spherical and stick with that. So notice that we do have several white areas of the image and there are a couple of different ways we can fix that. So the first is using the auto crop feature to protect the other Krupp checkbox. We can see that the white areas of the image are removed. But note however, that it also cropped out areas of the image which might not be what we want. So let's uncheck that. Option number two is the boundary warp. What this does is it eliminates white areas of the image without cropping most attendant either drink is all the way to a 100% for it to work. So let's do that. That's filled in those white areas pretty nicely. Note harbor, that's the bone do orb spider can sometimes cause problems because what it does is warps the photo in order to get rid of those white areas, which can sometimes produce unexpected results, especially with objects such as trees. So let's undo that from a drag this back down to 0. And the last option is using the fill edges feature. This is kinda of a new option in Lightroom. What this does is uses content aware technology, which is a feature that's been available in Photoshop for quite some time. So what this means is our Lightroom will fill in those white areas without cropping or warping the photo. So you might want to play a role with all three of them until the image looks the way that you want. So let's click the fill edges, checkboxes, see what this'll do. And there we go. So Lightroom filled in those white edges using that content aware technology. So once or photos or whether we want to click the merge button on the upper right corner of the window. We can see in the upper left corner here tells us that my tool is performing our emerge. And here we see a new image and our filmstrip, they merged panorama that we just created. So that is how to create a panorama intellect room. 61. Merging Photos using HDR: Hdr, or high dynamic range, involves merging three or more different exposures until one single shot. Hdr is especially suited for landscape photos where you have a lot of contrast between the sky and the land, such as Saenz Take it in low light. So the original photos are taken by different meter exposures, such as minus 20 or plus two or minus 10 and plus one. Some people take five different shots. So maybe minus two, minus 10 plus one and plus two. So taking metered shots for Xist is accomplished by setting your camera to auto Bragg attack mode. Now HTTR allows you to capture a wider variety of tones and inImage, thus balancing the shadows and the highlights. So for instance, you're taking a shot, let's say you expose for highlights within her shadows may end up being too darker, noisy. Likewise, if you expose for the shadows or even the mid tones, your highlights might end up being blown out. So taking bracketed exposures solves this problem. So using Lightroom's HDR future, you then put those individual images together and highlight the best parts of each image, preserving the detail in both the lightest and the darkest tones of the image. Now in the past, you used to have to go to Photoshop or use a third-party applications such as photo matrix pro, in order to merge multiple photos into a single HDR image. But now we could do that directly from Lightroom. So to get started, you first select the thought was that she wants him merge together though do choose photo, photo merge and then choose HTTR merge added. This will then display a preview of our merged image. So let's do that. So let's cut the G key on our keyboard is switched to grid view. We have these three images here of the Badlands. So we're gonna select the first image. Hold down the command key if you're using a Mac or Control key fusing windows and select the other two images though your makeup, our HDR, Saddam would choose photo, pointed photo merge and choose HDR merge. Now if you're did not use a tripod, when should do the images, you'll want to ensure that the auto align checkbox is checked. I forgot kinda funky results from this. Try clicking the auto line checkbox to see if that fixes the problem. You may also want to ensure that the apply auto settings checkboxes checked what this does is automatically applies tone settings to the image using those sliders on the light panel. So if I uncheck this, this displays the image without the adjustments and then checked with the adjustments. Now if there was any movement at all, whether the photos were taken, such as leaves blowing in the wind or boat's moving in water. So you'll want to choose an option from the D ghost amount slider here. This helps remedy any ghosting that occurred because of the movement. So right now we're set to none. Other options are low, medium, or high. And this helps fix study ghosting. Typically you'll want to use as lowest setting as possible. Because excessive goes correction can introduce i extra noise or ultra sharp edges, which we kind of see here. So let's go back to nine, and I'm going to drag that back because these are the edges of the grass here and the flowers are much softer. So once I'm happy with the way the images logs, I look click merge. You can see on the upper left corner of our winner here that Lightroom is performing our emerge. And here's our merged they mentioned we see a little tearing up at the upper right corner, HGRI, letting us know that this is an HDR image. We also see the number four, which means that Lightroom took an HDR image along with the original images. I'm placed them in this tag, like him did the same thing when we created a panorama In the last video, created our panel and also included the original images in a stack. So let's click on the HDR image here. This is our computed HDR. Let's think of the number of floor to view the other images in the stack. So you can see these were the original images. This is where Lightroom came up with, so not bad. Well, one thing I wanted to mention is a reason future Lightroom now allows you to create a panorama from HDR images. So you select all of the images that are part of the panorama of the bracket of images that you took for HDR. And then you merge them together by choosing photo phono merge and then HDR panorama merged from the menu. So you could end up with a Nyerere, more original images that you're gonna merge together into an HDR panorama. So yeah, that is how to merge photos using HDR in Lightroom. 62. Using Presets: The presets panel provides a way to save a group of image adjustments, all of your favorite sliders, and then apply them to other photos. So once you create a preset to the presets panel, the preset will remain ready to be used whenever you need it. So I'll do the spraying, the precise pattern, we click on the word presets and that's run at the bottom of the Edit paints. So you'll tap the IQ Ian your keyboard to display the image pane and then click presets. So a set of default presets is listed in the precess panel and they're grouped by categories where we have color, creative black and white defaults so that we have a curve, great optic sharpening and vignetting. And you can see what a preset does just by moving a most printer over the preset. And because see there's temporarily applied to the image so that you get a little preview of what the pisa does. If you decide you wanted to apply it to an image, click directly on the preset, and now it's applied to this image. But I'm going to undo that by tapping Command Z, or you would use Control Z if using windows. And you can expand or collapse any of these categories by clicking on the disclosure triangle or by clicking directly in the name of the category, so optics, et cetera. But let me collapse this. So once you've clicked on a preset to apply it to an image that's just, let's see, I did high-contrast here. You can still treat the settings using sliders or the various panels or by using the tools. Many people use presets as a starting point for editing their images and then further adjusts the sliders from there until the images to their liking. So I'm going to turn on the contrast of this evidence, and the contrast is a little bit too much. Let me click on the color paddle here and I can bring the temperature back to the right a little bit to warm it up a bit. So yes, you could use presence as a starting point and then further adjust from there. And again, if you don't, if you apply a present to an image of you don't like it, should always tap the Command or Control Z keystroke combination to undo that preset. Now what's nice about precesses that you could also create your own presets. To do so, select an image and make the desire to adjustments to that image. Then we click the little three dodge menu here and then choose creates preset. From here we provide a name for a preset and then select those adjustments that we wanted to include. Sorry, you can just uncheck everything that you don't want to include. And again, we saw this before. We have little disclosure triangle that expands a category which displays all of the sliders in that pain. And we can choose whether or not to include those as part of our preset. So you would just uncheck anything that you didn't want to include that only check those sliders that that you want. You can also manage your presets pane by clicking them three dodge menu again and choosing Manage presets. When this does, is allows you to hide any presets that you don't want to view. For example, if you never use Black and White Presets, it could uncheck the box next to black and white, the media. If you go back, you can see that the black and red category is no longer display what I actually wanted that backs from Nova back to manage presets. And I'm going to click the checkbox to redisplay it. And now when I go back evacuated categories once a good display, you can also import preset stuff you've purchased or had been given for mothers. And to do so again, we click the little three dodge menu and you choose Import presets. Then we navigate to the location where the preset is located, and that's cancel out of here. Likewise, if you've created a preset you want to share with others. And it could do so by exporting it. So how I do that is we right-click on the present that he went to x part, then choose export from the menu. And then again, we provided a name and then we choose a location to where we wanted to export that preset. And then you could email it to others if you so choose. This is an extra way of assuring your favorite presets with others. So yeah, presets again, if you have, I have a favorite son of sliders and you always use, you might want to consider save them as a preset with NDI can quickly apply that to other images and then make further adjustments from there. And that is how to use presets. 63. Enhancing Details of your RAW images: Lightroom now allows you to enhance the fine details of your raw images with a new feature powered by Adobe sensei called enhanced details. What this will do is better preserved the small colors of a photo, providing a higher resolution as well as giving you a more accurate rendition of the finer details in the image. Additionally, this can help reduce the false colors in your images. I've found that using enhanced details can bring out the crisp details and raw images better and improve colour rendering. It also can be especially helpful for bringing out the fine details when you're creating large prints where the details of the image are much more visible. So let's do this together. Server falling along, you want to select the image of the white lily in our film strip. And then we're going to choose photo, enhance details for the menu. And here we have a little preview window allowing us to see a before and the after version of the image. So this is after high enhanced details. So take a little preview window to display the image before the enhancement and then released the most budget for after the enhancement. So we're happy with the preview clicks the enhanced button. Oh, and by the way, given that this feature is computationally intensive, it will perform best on computers with faster CPUs. So let's click enhance that. It tells us it's gonna take about nine seconds. And we can see the upper-left corner of our screen that is now working. Once failures to the enhanced images saved as a new d, a gif file, the format with the original filename and enhanced out it onto the file name and it's displayed it in a stuck. So if we click on the number two here, this is our enhanced image and this is our original image. So in this case we don't see too much of a difference. But we might wonder was more of a difference if we zoom in a bit, it's a little bit of a difference on my screen for this where you're not modifying or touching your original image at all. What you're doing is creating a duplicate of the image and applying the enhancement to that. You can also enhance details from multiple images by selecting the images and then choosing photo, enhance details from the menu. And those I receive an error message. That's because one of the photos that I've selected is a JPEG. And it has details can only be applied to raw photos. So it's like, okay, note that it has details is not available for HDR and panel right? Images that were previously cratered instead of Lightroom or camera raw. So if I put my panel here and I choose photo enhanced details, it tells us that this is an unsupported photo and that's because it's a panorama. So just keep this in mind. So that is how to use the enhanced details feature in Lightroom. 64. Adding a Post Crop Vignette: I've been yet adds dark getting to the edges of your image, such creating a nice finishing effect. It also helps to draw the viewer's eyes to the center of the image. So if you've already cropped her image, use the postscript financing tool that's located under the effects panel in the end it's paid. So just click on the word effects, and that tool is the fourth tool from the top. By using this tool, you can brighten or darken the edges of your image within the constraints of their crop. Now notice that this is different than a lens vignette, which is something that you don't want. And this occurs when your camera is turned. Dark edges are grown in the image which you can fix from the, from the optics panel, which we saw in an earlier video. So you click on I enabled lens corrections and then clicks a little disclosure triangle. And the option to fix lens vignetting goes right down here. That's where nothing is figured would drag this slider until the vignetting is removed. But that's different than a postscript freedom yet there, which is an artistic effect to add a post crop vignette. You drink the vignettes farther to the left to increase darkening because he has that moved to the left, I'd edges get darker and darker or to the right to decrease darkening, which results a white video. Typically you should avoid white vignettes. However, these were quite popular back in the seventies. And then for deaths, slider also contains some hidden sliders, which you're gonna display by clicking the disclosure triangle to the right of the amount of box here. So we have the midpoints slider which sets how far the vignette reaches into the image. That is to say how close to the center of the photo the vignette affects the roundness slider largely to change the shape of the red. Get a sibling of minus 100 is almost rectangular and barely visible, whereas plus 100 is circular so that B out of vignettes nursery can, cuz there's a better idea of that. So here we have our Romanness holder to the left and then roundness all the way to the right to modify the hardness or softness of the edges of the vignette, you use the feathers slider. And again, this runs from 0 to 100. So we see all the way to the left, we could a hard edge of it yet, with 100 being so soft, that is barely visible is a blends nicely into the background. The default of 50 is a nice starting point, and then just drink from there until you attain the effect that you're looking for. The last slider here is the highlight slider, which runs from 0, which has no effect, or which is the default value to 100. There's brightens the highlights of a dark theme yet. So let me set the Virginia to the left here. And if I drink the highest funded to the right, you see that the edges lighten as I drag to the right. So let me reset these vignette sliders here. So a good way to get an idea of what the other vignettes writers do is to drag the vignette side or all the way to minus 100, then Griggs the midpoint roundness feather and highlights photos. You can see the effect that they provide. So here we see the point as I drag to the left and right roundedness against changes the shape or the vignette feather, the edges of the breast from our hard end due to super software blends nicely into the background and then the highlights, modifying the highlights of a dug for him yet. So all that being said, Forgetting should be added in minimal amounts. I does best to avoid extreme darkening or lightening of the edges of the image. So let me double click these sliders set to reset the boat to the default values. And then we set the vignette to this image. So if you're following along, you wanted to display the image of the monkey. So you would click the filmstrip below, and that's his image rate here, I'm ice cream sticks to the tiger. Then you wanna tell the key on your keyboard or display the Adams paid, and then click on the word effects to display the effects parallel. So let's drag the vignette slider to the left to about minus 15. This adds a slight dark Vignette around the edges. Next, we want to display those Hitchens slider. So we'll click the left printing disclosure triangle. And what we're gonna do is drink the midpoint slider to the left to about 35. This suggests how far the vignette reaches into the image. Lastly, I wanted to increase the softness of the vignette edges. Somebody to drink the friendless, slighter to the right, to maybe about 65 or so. Lets increase the forgets a little bit more, a little bit more to the left and iterate go though marks of a good rake there. So let's look at the before and after, before, after, before, after. So that is written the entering into Lightroom. 65. Working with Grain: Another Artistic Effect available from the effects panel is grain, which adds a granny locked her images. Notice that this is not the same thing as digital noise, which results from shooting in low light are at a high ISO. And we're actually going to discuss that in the next video. Rather Greg, as a creative adjustment that some people add to their images to create kind of a vintage lock or to add an interesting effect to black and white images. Grant can also be added to help diminish noise. And again, grain is located the effects panel and be collapsed. The vignette sliders here, the green sliders directly below vignette. And you drag the greatest sort of to the right until a green amount is where you want it. Now there are also a couple of hidden sliders here. So let's click that enough pointing disclosure triangle to display them with a size slider controls the size of the grain, bigger or smaller. With the roughness slider, you can create a blurry grain by dragging the slider to the left, or a sharp gradient by dragging the slider to the right. So let's add some grade tour image. So again, we're working with the image of the monkey. So you'll want to click the image of the monkey. And then he wanted to ensure that the effects parallel is expanded. And again that's in the editor claim. And that strengthen grin slider to the right to about six. And we can see as I drag the grain appear, begins appearing in the image. So baud rate here. So let's decrease the size of our grade. And again, you want to click on the disclosure triangle to the right of the amount of box for the grand slider. Let's drag the slider to the right. That's too, let's make a pretty big, so let's bring it all the way to maybe 0.75. So we can see that the grid size really increased as we gotta move the slider. And if you recall, if you wanted to create a blurry Greg, who drink the roughness slider to the left, we see that the grain gets blurrier as we drag. So I've changed my mind to decide has I don't like to look at his image with the grade. Somebody revert back to the way a wise. So that's receptive Graeme panel. So move above, pinch over the word grain and then click Reset on the word changes to reset, and now the grade is removed from the image. 66. Reducing Noise: Lightroom's noise reduction feature comes in handy to remove artefacts which can show up in your images if you're shooting at a higher ISO or in low light. But you don't tend to notice image noise of issue zoomed in really close on an image. So unless you're planning on printing an imager, including your just part of your portfolio. You really don't need to worry about noise too much with online images as most of the time, it isn't very noticeable. If you do want to reduce the noise into photo, however, it can do so by using a noise reduction slider in the Detail panel. And again, the detail parabolas located in the Edit pig. Now there are two types of noise that you can correct for it. Lightroom, luminance noise or color noise. If you see red, green, and blue dots in your image, then you have car noise and calendar is it's fairly easy to get rid of. Just drink the course slider to the right until those pledges of color disappear. But be careful not to rig this stator too far to the right of the lineage of print and up desaturating your images a little bit. Now if we see graininess in your image, on the other hand, this is luminance noise, which you can reduce by dragging the noise reduction slider to the right. Now as you drag the slider to the right of the image, that they will then begin to blur, losing some of its sharpness, which isn't always what you want. And as this begins to happen, you can counteract some of this by using the Detail slider, which is a hidden slider under noise reduction sort recollect the disclosure triangle next to the noise reduction slider, where you can see we have a couple of hands and sliders here, detail and contrast. If you've added some noise reduction to the image on your image begins to blur. It could drink this started to the right to try to bring back some of that detail. So with these two sludge amount, one w and why you need to play around a little bit of back and forth between the two of them until you find the right combination. And the same goes for color noise. So if you're, you're losing sharpness as you drink, they're colored. Noise reduction is fun or to the right. If you're try adjusting the hidden Detail slider. And again, we click the disclosure triangle to display those heads sliders. And then we would drink this again to the right to try to bring back some of that sharpness. So you can also play around with the smoothest sliders. So the smoothness and the Detail slider until a photo ends of looking at the way that you want. And I'm going to reset these sliders, Aram. As for the Contrast slider here and find the rift, that's really doesn't do too much. It may depend on the image I. You just tend to ignore this slider as it doesn't seem to affect the image of that much. So let's work together. Let's get rid of some noise. So I'm gonna reset all these sliders here. And again, if you're following along, you want to ensure that you have the image of a mud. You selected the film strip and displays in detail view. So why don't want to do now is displayed this image full size, which allows us to see the noise in the background. And the tool is probably here, the bottom over a Screen1, take one-to-one. This has the image full size, and I can see that there is some noise in this image, a little bit of noise. If we look closely, I'm not sure how well it shows up on your screen in the video. But if you zoom into yourself, you should be able to see the noise of this image. So let's expand the detail paddles or Hindi taken the word detail to expound it if it's not expanded. And let's try to get rid of some of this noise. Sewer Gertrude dregs of noise reduction slighter to the right and let's go maybe to about 55. And you can see the more you start to disappear as we drag. That looks pretty good though I did lose some of the detail in my image. So if I want to bring some of that back, so what we need to do is display the hidden sliders by clicking the disclosure triangle next to the noise reduction slider. And that's drink the details that are to the right. And we can see some of the detail isn't coming back. And that's trade this to about 65. So let's take a look at the before and after his image solo taps the backslash key on my keyboard before, after, before, after. So yeah, because he's definitely removes similar Norris from the forall. So let's finish off by taking the word fit on the bottom of our screen here to fit the image to our window. 67. Sharpening an Image: If the edges of your photo aren't as crisp as you would like, it can lose Lightroom's sharpening sliders tag contrast to those image edges. The sharpening future enhances the details I've written image by increasing the focus of the blurry areas, Lightroom sharper, it's only the edges of the image is thus preserving the overall smoothness of the photon. Now by default, electro adds a bitter sharpening to all of your raw files. It doesn't do this with JPEG photos, however, as sharpening is typically already applied in camera, you can further sharpening feature in the Detail panel and thus a hidden the edit page. So we click on the word detail to expand that a pat on the sharpening slider is the first slider in this panel to apply sharpening through a thorough district, the sharpest center to the right. And again, this will find the edges of your image and then I'd some contrast and texture to those edges. This fight, it also has a couple of hidden spiders to it. So it'll take the left printing disclosure triangle next to the amount of box we see we have radius detail and masking. Using the radius slider, you can specify how far outside of the edge Lightroom is to apply the sharpening. You typically don't want to go any higher than 1.3 or 1.4 as any higher than that can result in over sharpen images which kind of heads up as a fake looked to them. The Detail slider allows you to specify how many of the edges will be sharpened. When this is at a low setting, Lightroom only sharpens the extreme contrast the edges in a photo. If your drink or too far to the right, this can result in a lot of bad texture, especially on skin. The last letter here is masking. What this does is hides the sharpening from this smoother surfaces, such as the sky or skin. Now it's worth mentioning that you can selectively apply sharpening only to specific areas of his image by using the, by using the brush tool. So we tempt the BEQ to activate the brush tool. Ms. scroll down. We have the sharpness tighter right on her through a drag. Their sharpness started to the left or right, and then paint on only over those areas of the image to which we want to add sharpening. And we took the BQA good to hide their brush panel. And what tell me to display the edits pen, I don't know, brings us back to the Detail panel. So yeah, so usually the brush tool you can apply sharpening to selective areas or image. Whereas the sharper, the slider in the Detail panel applies global sharpening to the image and to say to every part of the image. So we're going to work with a different image for this video. So let's tap the G key on a keyboard to display grid view. And we went the image of this snowy bridge, and that's the first image of my screen here. So double-click that, um, that displays that image a detail view. Then we're tough the IQ here and a keyboard or display the edits pay. And then if the detailed pedal isn't expanded, you want to claim the word detail. So let's drink this sharpening slighter to the right to maybe let's go to about 30 years song. Okay, so now I went to increase hole far outside the edge Lightroom is to apply the sharpening. So I'm going to click the sharpening disclosure triangle to display those hidden sliders. And I don't drink the radius slighter to the right to maybe about 1.2. And again, as we mentioned, you don't want to go too far with this slider. So the toolbar here, let's think of the word fill to zoom in on the image. Let's take a look at the before and after this image will tough the backslash key before, after, before, after. You can see how blurry there before v with his images. After much sharper. So the details really pop. So let's was a good fit this image tourists, Greeves who will click on the word fit on the tool bar. And that is how to sharpen an image in Lightroom. 68. Using the Radial Gradient Tool: Using the radial gradients tool, you can create a circular gridded, thus creating kind of a spotlight affected your images. This is an excellent way to bring attention to specific areas of your photo. Once the filter is activated receptor sliders and then draw a circle or oval on the image around the area that you want to include. An adjustment as a Jew, Mick will occur to everything outside the circle. Then once you've drawn your circular or oval, you can move it to any area of your photo or resize it. Particular knob, what are the sizing handles? And then drinking inward or outward. And the radial Gradient tool is the last icon on the right panel bar here. And this is I kind of with a circle. So let's work with this a bit. So if you're following along, you want to click on the image of the monkey and the film strips. So you drink the films to parts of the monkey, thumbnails visible, and then click add to display it in detail view. And then you want to trump the E key on a keyboard to display the edits pain. And Well, what I wanted to do first is increase the exposure of the image. Our end goal is to brighten the face of the monkey darker than the rest of the image. So you want to click on the light panel on that string. The exposure maybe done maybe to about 1.25 or so. Next, we activate the radial tool by clicking on its icon. And again, that's this tool right here in the bottom of the right panel, Bosco, click it. You can see immediately the radial gradients sliders up here. Now we're ready to draw our, all those who will draw all the red rather than sorts, sort in the face of the monkey. And it doesn't matter if you don't get it perfect, you can just click the center dot here and drag until it's the way you want. And I'm going to bring that in. Cbc is it'll be sizing handles around the edges of your novel so we can make this bigger or smaller. Ammo, drag this up a little bit, and then we'll reposition it. So it's like so certainly adjustments WE make to the radio filter would be made to any area inside of the soko, sir, we can see that if I turn up the exposure, it's only effective this area within our oval. I don't want to do that. I'm gonna leave this as it was. I want it to be about one or so. So I'm going to do now is inverts the filter when inverted at the adjustments we make will occur to everything outside of the circle area. So to do so we click the inverse checkbox here. So now let's do decrease the exposures during the exposure slider to the left, we can see there is affecting everything outside the image. I'm gonna drag this way, way down this trigger to about minus three. I'm not justice a little lower down. So more of the face of a monkeys to spit in the circle. So nobody could see it focuses really on the monkey's face. And by the way, you can extend the reach of the radial filter by clicking the brush icon and then painting on the area of the image to which you want to apply the filter. But I don't really want to do that. So I'm gonna click See first icon here, which brings us back to the radial gradient filter. One more thing I want to mention is that like the Brush tool or the linear gradient, you can have multiple radial filters as well. To kinda new filter be again, click the first icon on the panel, such as sliders, and then greater than desired area of the image to create a new adjustment. So if I wanted a brighter than this area of the image here, the railing of a dreg just right down here, turned up the exposure. And again, we see that it's only affecting that area of the photo. I want it to be maybe try to brighten up the bar a little bit here. And notice, and if I click outside of the oval, I can rotate it. And then I can just drag it to change its position. So now we've gotten a little glow effective to the railing here. Recent future in Lightroom is the local Hugh adjustment feature, which is available in their linear gradient, radial gradients and the Brush Tools. What this will do is adjust the hue for every color that you've painted. Or the, Or in this case, thunder within our gradient boundary. Previously, adjusting the hue is only available as a global adjustment. And the colour panel to use a feature, just drink the sliders in the hue bar here until the colors of the with us run. And I don't want to use the Friend adjustment here. So if I click on this color here, we can see that I can chain. We can see the colors changing to everything outside of our gradient area, which die, which kind of creates some interesting effects here as we can see, when you click on the US front adjustments checkbox, the huge changes considerably slower as you drag a log u to get more of a finer tune adjustment. But I think I'm gonna leave that rates there a thing that looks kinda cool. So I think I'm done with the radial filter, so I'll click of the radial filter icon and that toggles off the tool. And that is using the radial gradients tool in Lightroom. 69. 1206 A Look At Lightroom Mobile: If you're a creative cloud for photographers subscriber or subscription of full Creative Cloud Suite by Adobe, you have access to Lightroom Mobile now has led to a mobile. You can enter your images from your mobile device, then seek your photos to their cloud where you can then easily access them from your computer or your other mobile devices. Sort's nice at all. Lightroom Mobile is that you can edit even raw images right from your phone and tablet. So in this video, I'm gonna be using an iPhone, but the Android app is fairly similar, so you should be able to follow along with that sort of opened the Lightroom app, we tap the Lightroom icon and I have that on my home screen here on my phone. So I will tap that. When you open the app Lightroom displays the last folder you are looking out when you close the app. So right now we can see that on top of our screen that I've made an album named for Instagram. Kids swipe to see all of the images in this album. To go to the main library view. You either top library on the bottom of this screen. And here we see Bria, four icons at the bottom here, Library shirt, learn and discover. Or we can tap the left pointing arrow or that top left corner or window. And this Bach's has one screen at a time. So let me do that from our tap, this little arrow, this brings us back to the main library area. So here we can see we have the same full risen albums that we see the desktop version and the album was OR follows w modifies there in Lightroom for desktop are sync for like true mobile. So you'll see exactly this same items including any photos actually edited. We also see the same filters as well. We see a recently added recent edits, people and deleted. And of course we have all photos as well, which displays all of the images in our Lightroom catalog. There be tough that left arrow to go back to our main library or area. So notice that I was, as we scroll down each album or folder has a little three dots menu to the right of it. And if we tap this little three dots, we see at many additional options. The first option is add photos, and this allows us to add photos, the album, to import photos into the active albums. So let me tap that. We see we have a couple of options. We can import photos from all photos. That's tough. Maine, Florida contains all of our Lightroom images. We can import from camera roll, that is to say the album that your device uses to store images when you take, when you take a photo with their default camera or from files which allows us to import images from a cloud drives such as iCloud Drive semi topped out to go back. The second option is to auto add from camera roll. And what this will do is automatically import any images that you take with your camera into the active album store locally allows you to download the photos in the album and store them locally on your phone. Next we see Sharad invite, so let's tap it here. I can choose to share the album with other people by entering in their email address. So to do so, we would tap invites people and then enter the email address of any people with whom you want to share the album. And I'm not gonna do that right now, so I'm gonna tap the back hero. He also got a sharable link that you can share in an email or social media. And notice nurses are top here. I already have a length that I generated. The entry of your phone may say sharable link. Then we'll tap that. Now Adobe Lightroom will generate a link. Then you can just tap the Clipboard icon or the link in your messages app by email or on social media. So I'd be many options here because we conceive. So let me, so I'll tap the executed close this out. Already worked with sharing I albums and images, but we are going over the desktop version of Lightroom checker. This screen we'll touch a little check mark in the upper right corner of the window. Let's tap that little three.me again, you also have the option to move to. This allows us to move our album to another folder. We see we also have the option to rename an album so I could tap on Rename and then type in the new name for the album. And the last option is delete, which will remove the album from light room. So I'm going to tap anywhere in the top area my screen to exit this menu. On the bottom of the device, we also have a shared alert and discover sort of your top unshared. We see all of the album was an images that we're currently sharing online. And again, tapping of the little menu icon here provides those same options that we saw a moment ago. You can send anybody a LinkedIn. You have these alphas by tapping of the little link icon and then choosing us social media messages app or whatever you wish to share. And the butter here we also have learn and discover, which we've seen in a previous video and provide examples and tutorials on using Lightroom. So let's tap library to about terminated library area. Then I'll tap for Instagram to go back into that album to edit an image, just tap the image thumbnail, and then we'll open it into details view. So right now I am in the rate and review screen and I can tell because the drop-down list on the top left corner of my screen reads review. If we top of this menu, we can see our other options, edit, activity, keywords, an info. So if we wanted to make adjustments to the image, we tap Edit. Sir, I will do that. And we see a strip of tools up here on the bottom of our screen. From within the Lightroom Mobile Abby can make adjustments to photo by using any of the tools of the strip. We see many of the same tools every Southern desktop version of Lightroom, you see this selective tool healing tool and crop tool. So the selective tool works a little bit differently here than it does of a desktop. What this does is allow us to make selective adjustments using the brush tool to linear gradient or the radial gradients tool. These are all combined into one icon and I liked through mobile. So I will tap selector. We see a plus symbol of the upper-left corner or image. It tapped out to begin creating an adjustment. And we'll see a little icon bar containing three icons. The leftmost icon is the brush icon. The center-right icon is the radial gradient of the rightmost icon is the linear gradient. So let's tap the radio gradient. Now we drag on the images to create our grievance. And notice as I drag, Lightroom creates that circle or oval. And then I can just click on the center dot to reposition it anywhere I like. Now we make our adjustments to the Oval. So I'm gonna tap light on the bottom of my screen here. I'm going to drag the exposure up a bit and notice that it's only affecting that area within the circle. I'll have some contrast to that area. I don't want to see if these changes, so I'm going to back out of here by tapping the X on the lower left corner of my screen. If I wanted to save my changes, I were tapped to checkmark on the lower right corner of the screen, but I don't want to do that, sir. But a tab X, you also said we have the crop tool here from a tab that notice or images surrounded by crop panel. So I wanted to do is click and drag the handles to crop the image. You can see right now that I'm cropping to an aspect ratio. So what I'm gonna do a free form crop or would tap the aspect ratio, which is the leftmost icon of the strip. And then choose Custom from the list. Or if we wanted a crop at a specific aspect ratio such as 16 by nine, select that from the list. And you can see now the aspect ratio has changed to 16 by nine. But I want to do a free form, so I'm going to choose Custom from the list. And notice now that I can crap anyway, I like, let me see the other options that we also saw the desktop version straighten the rotate left, rotate right, as well as flipped horizontally and vertically. So let me back out of here without saving my crop. We also see icons representing all of our edit panels. So if I scroll a little bit to the right here we see the light, color effects, detail, optics and geometry. So let me turn the light here and notice that we see all of the same sliders that we'd have in the desktop version of our Lightroom. And to make adjustments, simply drag the sliders that you want to do is to the left or rice. Notice as I'm dragging the exposure strategy of the left neighbor which darkens and to the right at brightens. See we have contrast, highlights, shadows, ex cetera. Reselling a slider works the same way that it doesn't the desktop double-tap directly on the slider that recessive to his default position. If you made several adjustments that you wanted to undo, swipe to the left on the toolbar up until the last icon is displayed. The last icon is there, reset icon. So we tap it, then we tap adjustments that resets all of the adjustments we made to this image. Once your images or on your mobile device and you've edited them the way you like, you can then share them with others by choppy the shirt who icon on top of the screen, and then choosing which service to share, such as e-mail, text, Misha's DropBox, Facebook or Twitter. And the share icon is a second icon from the left on the top of our screen. So we will tap that. The first option is sure to. So when we tap that their displays a list of applications and services to where we can share our images. So we can set a directed to Instagram. It has save it to a Cloud Drive or it insured via text message, email, or social media. Now I'll tap the x tobacco out of here and I'll click the Share icon again. Could also share with others by inviting people or giving a sharable link. And we work with these two options of Open a god. The open-end feature allows you to open and edit the image. And another application, such as Photoshop fixed our camera plus and b tab open in. So again, we see a list of applications. We can open our image1 and if we scroll all the way to the right, there is a more icons at the top that Lightroom displays a list of all applications on my device. And your screen will look different than mine depending on which applications you have a metallic done tobacco out of here and will tell the x again. And let's talk the Shura code one more time and we see a couple of other options here. There's export to camera roll, which allows us to send her image to our camera roll, which is our phones default photo album. This is where images that you take with your phone are stored and then export to files which allows us to export to our cloud location or cloud drives such as iCloud Drive. So let's tap the AI. Sure, I can again, tobacco out of here. So let's go back to our for Instagram albums. Some attempt that left arrow on the top of our screen now to filter them, display a photos when you're in an album, taps the Filter icon at top of the screen, and that's the second icon from the left. And a resembles a little funnel. So we top that. We can filter by stars, by flags or by metadata. So right now if we wanted to display any images greater or equal to three stars, I would tap the third start from the left. You can see there a comparison operator, which is the icon to the left of the stars, is set to greater equal to. I can change this by tapping on it. So if I tap it less than or equal to temperate, again, equal to, if I wanted to see any images that contain five stars, I would type in the fifth star. Now, only images that contain 5-stars will be displayed to remover filter, tap the X on the upper right corner of our screen, and that's directly below the three dots menu. So if I click the XOR will remove all filters to this album. Let's talk the Filter icon again. And likewise, you can filter by flags. The leftmost flag, beloved stars is flagged. So this owner displays flagged images and tap it again to remove that filter. Centre icon is unflagging. So this will display only images that do not contain a flag template again, and the rightmost flag is rejected. This will only display images that have the rejected flake applied to them. And again, you can combine these filters so I can filter by any images that contain far more stars and are on flayed. Let's remove this filter so I'll tap the X and the upper right corner of your screen and let's go back to Filter again. Can also filter by metadata. So if I tap camera here, this displays all of the cameras which were used to take the images in this album. So if only wanted to display images taken with my Canon camera or tap the Checkbox Text, a cannon. And now only images taken with that camera are displayed, go back into filter, tap camera again. So why did to display images taken with my Canon or my Nikon? I were attempts a nighttime checkbox as well. And now images taken with either of those cameras will display. But let me uncheck that to go back to all images. I'll tap the left printing arrow here to move back his screen. Another options here or type, photo panorama raw, your HDR is would show here as well. If you choose people location, keyword, or whether or not the photo has been edited. And I got to be worked with all of these when we were looking at the desktop version of Lightroom. So let's exit the filter screen. So you can also search for images by clicking the magnifying glass icon, thus the leftmost icon, the top of our screen, and then typing in your search term. So let me tap the icon. So if I type in Lyon and then tap Search, only images matching that search term will display. And this could be the name of the file are key word, description or caption, or the contents Azure remove a search to see where you remove a filter by tapping the little X in the upper right corner of our screen that removes the search term of from our elbow. So let's tap Done to exit search. And if you want to import images into Lightroom, it can do so from either your camera roll or by taking a new image using Lightroom's camera feature. So all right corner of our album view here we see a blue group of two icons. The leftmost icon allows us to import images from all photos. That is that all 4-0 of Lightroom that contains all of our images from camera roll or from iCloud Drive. So let me tap that icon and then a for top camera. Oh, it will display all images that I've taken with my camera. So let's say I wanted to bring this image over a topic of then tab ad. We see a says skipped importing duplicate. And it didn't imported because that image already exists in my Lightroom library. That is to say I've already imported it. But if that was not the case, that image would have been imported into the active album, which in this case is that for Instagram album. And again, the other options were from all photos or from files, which is which I could import images from my iCloud Drive. So let me back up here by tapping the left arrow and then on the top cancel. So if we want to take a new photo using your device's camera, tap the camera icon. This allows you to take a photo using Lightroom's camera app to take a photo, tap the shutter button, and that's in the lower center of your screen. It's a big white budget. So if a topic that we've now taken a photo and has been stored in Lightroom. So what's nice about Lightroom's camera app is that it allows you to shoot it Raph for much if you want. Unlike the built-in camera app, or at least at the time of this recording, does not support shooting. And Rob, if we take a look at the top center of our window where your reads D and G, which is Adobe's raw format. Now if you decide that you'd rather shoot JPEG instead of rock, tap the DNG entry, and then, then tap that little switch to switch to JPEG. And you can see that the entry of the top center of our screen now changes to JPEG rather than D and G. But I want to go back to Ross orbit a tablet JPEG, then tap the slider, just switch back to DNG. They'll tap anywhere in my screen to exit this menu. So we can see it's all of our available options on the bottom of this screen. So the first one is exposure compensation. So for a topic. Good change. I could drink the little slider to the left to darken or to the right to brighten. The next option is shutter speed. So you can drag to the right to change the shutter speed, or drag all the way to the left to set us to auto shutter speed. The third option is ISO. Again, we see the same thing. Could drink this slider to the right to change our ISO. And notice that the value is below the ISO option change as I drag. So right now we can still have em at 320 ISO garbage drink it all the way to the left for oratorio Saul, next is white balance. Right now it's set to auto white balance, which is AWB, the leftmost option. But we do see the same options that we saw in Lightroom Mobile. So here we have Tungsten, Fluorescent, daylight, cloudy. We even have an eyedropper tool that we can sample a tablet, a neutral surface. But I want to go back to auto white balance and metabolize WB again and tab AWB. The next is auto, which will automatically apply them to default adjustments to the image and then reset, to reset any options that we made. And then when you're ready to take the image, just tap see shutter button. They can also change which lens to use by clicking on the little icon to the right of the shutter button on my phone, I have three options, wide, which is designated by the letter w per tap. The icon, switch to telephoto, which is represented by the letter T, I'd lastly, ultra-wide, which is represented by the letters UW. North of the ultra-wide LEDS does not support shooter going to rock. If you look at the top center of our image, we see that the option has changed to JPEG rather than D and G. And that is because the ultra wide lens does not support shooting and rough. So we're tapped this LEDS. I kinda again, let's switch to wide angle. We see the option at the top of our screen changed back to d, a g. If we're looking at the top right corner of your screen, you see a 3.The icon. And if you tap it, like tuple, display a row of icons from the left to right. These are remove this. We can see that better aspect ratio right now we see that we're shooting at a four to three aspect ratio. I can tap that to change it soon. Every tap it, we see the other options available to us. I'll tap the icon again to hide the menu. The next icon, the second icon is timer. This allows us to set a tool five or 10 second timer. Next option is the grid. So second option on the left is the, is the ruler affords grid like to turn to elect to use out1, but we do have a couple of additional options. There's also the level feature which allows you to line up the straight lines of your image before taking it. So that can come in handy. The fourth argument for the left IS highlights clip. And so you can choose whether to show or hide highlights clipping, the fierce I kinda from the leftist settings allows you to apply a couple of additional settings to the image store to exit the camera area of Lightroom Mobile. We tapped the little x on the upper left corner of our screen, And that brings us back to our main Lightroom Mobile Area. One more thing I wanted to show you, I'm going to chop the image of the heart here to Georgia that image. So right now we're in edit mode and this is where we see all of our other tools in the bottom of our screen. But if we wanted to rate and rank this image, you would tap the drop-down list on the upper left corner and TBA raisin review. This is where you apply stars and flags for your image, for your tap into the stars here and the bottom Romer screen to apply a star rated or the image or other these flags flagged or unpaid. So again, we top it to toggle it on or off. The rightmost flake is Zi Rejected flag. So right now the image is rejected, but see that a darkened in our film strip here. But let me remove the rejected flag. Could also apply keywords Tory image by tapping the drop-down list again and tapping keywords. So right now I have two keywords, applied, bird and hawk, and wanted to apply as additional keyword or a tap in the add keywords box. And let's type in animal. And then tap Done. And now we can see that keyword has been applied as well as types of menu again, and that's tough info. And what this does is it displays the info screen. So here we can add metadata such as title, captions are copyright information that can also modify the star rating and add or remove flags from this area. And on the bottom of our screen and can view the metadata that the camera applied to this image. So let's go back to our main library. Earths are my top of the left arrow key here. Then tub Library of the bottom of our screen. So now let's take a quick look at the Lightroom Mobile on the iPad. Ok, so here we are over on the iPad and we can see that or a screen looks more similar to the desktop version of Lightroom to be solved with the iPhone, we have the photos area, which consists of our filters on top or albums and folders on the bottom with a grid of images on the right. All right. Corner we have the same options that were hired on the iPhone, the little blue icons, which allows us to input images from a camera roll from all photos or from iCloud Drive, or the camera icon which allows us to take an image with our iPad, which I don't want to do some of the top the x tobacco out of here. We also have a little three dots menu. You're going to be can choose show an invite. We also can segment her view and this was also available on the iPhone. You can segment by years, months, days. So if I chose by years here, you can see that our images are now grouped by year segmentation. I can group it by flags, by star ratings or for tough star ratings can see 5-stars or the top four stars, three stars and zeros stars. It's come back to segmentation and that's choose none of the sets us back to the way it was. So let me tap the left arrow key to move back one screen. We can also sort by capture date and then set a does show analog view options and set the thumbnail size our display EXIF information. Choose where to display the flags and ratings in the lower left corner of the image. We can see that that is the case right now. So now we can see the stars directly on the image from this view. And display the file type. Let's go back a screen, but could also add, add photos from this menu as well. So we see there are many different ways to perform the same task, such as adding flourish gathered from here, or by using the icon on the lower left corner of the screen. And the top right corner of the image we see the save icon says on the phone with live search filter activity. And then cloud of this lets us know whether we're sink or whether we're in the process of sinking. So let's tap an image. So here are our screen more closely resembles the desktop version of Lightroom. So the image now is displayed in detail view. The topmost icon here is the Edit page. And here we see the same powers though we saw the desktop version of Lightroom. So via color panel, the effects panel, lights parallel again. It just drag the VS fighters to the left to right. One thing I wanted to show you is in the color paddle. Notice that we don't see the color mix panel on the bottom here times because you need to first click the little icon that it'll scarred circle that will display the color mixed panel on the bottom. So you tap the icon to toggle the display of that panel. So my palate bar, we sees many of the same tools that we see the desktop version of Lightroom. So here we have the editor to paint on top of the panel. Next is presets. So here we can apply a preset Tory image. So we want to apply a black and white prisoner to the image or maybe a score to creative integer the student softer missed. So many of the same options that we see the desktop version, simply tap cancel. Again, we have cropping if the Healing Brush, and again, rather than having separate tools for the linear gradient radial within the brush are combined into one icon here. So we're going to be would click the plus symbols and shoes, brush regular gradient or linear gradient, and then drag on our image. To apply the adjustment. Again, we can trigger only adjustment, apply settings from the panels, various panels here. Again, that only affects sea area within the circle. And if I want to delete an adjustment of just tapped the trash Canada deletes that adjustment from the image. We can also apply adjustments to this image from the previous photo there readjusted. And lastly we have versions. And we worked with this little bit in an earlier video. We wish we could create several different versions of an image with different adjustments. So you would first make your adjustments to your bot using the sliders and then create a virgin provided a name. And then it can switch back and forth between the different versions. But I don't wanna do that. Summed up top the x tobacco out of here. On the upper right corner of our screen, we have the 3.What menu icon. And here we have a couple of different options organized. Those is to add images to an album or move images to a different album, can remove the current album or delete it, can also set it as album cover, which is the key photo that displays when you're in the main library area of Lightroom. Can also copy settings from one image and then paste them to another. So you would use this maybe if you took a group of images with the same desk boutons can lens. So you could use the Healing Brush to remove the dust spot from the image and then copy those settings to all of the other images that suffered from this same issue. It create a preset using the current settings of the image or even view your images in the album in a slideshow. We tap the little right poured the arrow hippo, right core diverse green to begin our slideshow. So it's a quick way of displaying your images to others if you want. And that's counsel, our slideshow cap the Stop button. I'm a Top X to back out of here. So on the lower right corner we see a group of four icons here. If we tap the star icon, this allows us to apply stars and flags Tory image. And again, we've worked with this several types of the past. Second I cut for the top of this group of icons is activity. So it has keywords. So here I can type in a keyword, lion and tap done. That's the key word to that image. And the last icon is the info icon. And again, we saw this before. This displays a metadata of our image. It allows us to intrude a Title Caption copyright. We can also modify the star rating and apply or remove a flake from here as well. And we can see some of the metadata of the camera applied Tory image. So yes, as we can see, Lightroom Mobile is quite powerful and its own right and is a great way to integer images. While on the Gulf. 70. Conclusion: So all rights. You did it in military ended by Dolby Lightroom up TSP. Congratulations, well done. So you've learned a lot in this class and I hope that the course met your expectations will also hold thing. Got him out a little bit of fun going skewedness. Well, you now have an impressive set of light skills. So don't be afraid to experiment with your photos. Remember earlier, Lightroom is non-destructive. So you could always go back to the original state of your photo if you mess up. And we all mess up. Now, there's another thing that I missed on a topic you are hoping I'd cover, but didn't. Please let me know. I want this to be the best courses possible out there on Adobe Lightroom. Again, thank you so much for taking this course and perhaps we'll be seeing each other again in future courses.
