About This Class

In this class, you'll learn the most important tools and workflows to use Lightroom*, the photo library and retouching suite from Adobe. Organize your photos, label them, color tag them... everything you need to keep your library tidy and clean so you can find whatever you need when you need it, quick and easy. Not only that, Lightroom offers a series of tools for color correction, effects, red-eye and spot removal, cropping... One of the most useful things you can do with Lightroom is extending the corrections on one photo to all of the selected photos via Syncing: this is a game changer - color correct one photo, and with a couple of clicks, same changes will be applied to the whole set.

*The videos were recorded some time ago and LightRoom has been updated, so if you're using the current version, you may find some slight differences between what you see and the videos.

I was born in Galicia, Spain, in 1987. I've liked drawing since I can remember, and when 3D videogames started thriving I was very interested into that subject, it looked to me like the natural evolution for my drawings!! In 2005 I had my first contact with 3D software, more specifically with 3Ds Max. For years, while I studied traditional animation I played with visual effects, a field that I love, and eventually had to learn XSI and Maya for different projects. In 2007 I learned about Blender, but it wasn't until 2008 that I'd decide to use it seriously and fight against that pre-2.5 UI. After a week using it I couldn't go back to the software I previously used, Blender grew on me and I've used it as my 3D software of choice ever since.

1. Intro to LightRoom: Welcome to the slide room. Five course full course. And, ah, in this quick video, I'm gonna very quickly go through the very basics off light room. So in just a couple of minutes, you can have an idea on how to use that. It's how to use it to navigate through your library, import photos and be able to correct Ah, them. All right, So ah, just to get you on speed. And then if you were instant, you can just keep watching the videos to see specific features or get more in depth into into light room because it's, ah, kind of useful program. If you want to organize your stuff, your photos. Okay. So first, let's import things. We can click here in Own import. Of course. Wait for it. Okay, that we are going. All right. So let's ah, let's from here. The photos that I want to suggest Ah, load. So here we can check or uncheck the photos that we want to import. We can uncheck Oh, and check only the ones that I want to import. So these ones, for example, and this one, let's say and maybe this one go down this two for assemble. Import them. Okay, so now we can go through them here, check the videos. For if you want to see better how to navigate through this? I can double click on it to see that full screen and go here with the arrow keys to see them. So you can see these two photos. One of them is kind of more focused while the other one, this is ah, you know, bury the focus so I can just right click on it and remove photo. This will remove the photo on Lee from we can believe in front of discuss. Well, if we don't like it at all or we can just remove it from the library in, Ah, hearing the live room. Okay. Now, keep in mind that every change did you do to the photos here in light room will remain it lie room only. All right. The original photos will be kid kept in their original status until you export the new ones . All right. Until then, the changes, the color, corrections and everything will only happen and belong in Ah, light room. Okay, So now we could attack or a level rate and the flat This Ah, image. All right. We can create collections off of images, and, um, we can just ah, at praise presets if we have some presents Ah ah. Ready for applying to our photo. Okay. And let's see how to call the correct of photo. So we go here and ah, we can go here to the greed view again. And Jessica weakened envelope rice. And now we are in the devil up, and ah, we can just, for example. So let this we can crop our image to make it more understand for assemble. All right, we can adjust the or is in with this option. So they say, this is the artisan. So we put the photo recently. Any kind of doesn't look right. So let's change it again. Never go. Done. Okay. And now we can start correcting the color. Here. We can turn it to black and white. We can go to call her. We can make it warmer or cooler. So with the temperature, the crease, this poster because it's very bright, he's a little highlights or increase it. Just put the shadows darker. And the plaques, doctor, and increase the clarity. A little, And then we have our corrected photo. Now we could save Ah, snapshot here of the photo. There we go and call it Snapshot and this IHSAA status off the photo, right, Because in any at any point, we can go back. And as I said, the original photo keeps being in the disk. So if we reset it, we go back to the original one. But we can just quick here in the snapshots and go back to the status that we saved so we can keep tweaking if we want Okay, something like that. More cooler and save another snapshot. So now we can, you know, compare between this to a status. We can also go here and compare the before and after, or we can just compare it with a different snapshot. For example, copy snapshots, settings to before so we can compare these two versions off the photo. So pretty interesting. Now, um, we can ah, sly through several option for comparing or go back to the normal view. So I like this version. I can just go back to the library, okay? Or I can just from the devil. Look, man, you just select other photos. Right? For example, this one and I can just right click here. You're the devil up settings, copy settings. So let the settings I want a copy and go to this other house that is kind of similar. And just go to the devil of settings and based settings. And it has been corrected in the same manner as you can see, so you can reset it, go to the library, and we can do the same from the library. Basically, in the library, we navigate in select photos and talked them at keywords to them and stuff and to organize them. And in the devil up ah panel, we can tweak them because I I only showed you the very basic options. But we have here a lot of options for call the correction out of details and, you know, cleaning the noise. A lot of staff, even great infielders. All right, if we want to make it waiting there exposure. Okay, so, yeah, we have a lot of options here. Ah, spot removal, human. So let's go to the library again, okay? And we can't let all these photos, for example, uh, make sure this one is the active one and click on sync settings. So let the centers would do we want to synchronize, synchronize and all of the rest of photos will take the cropping and the color correction off this. Ah, the 1st 1 So as you can see all of them now half the great in here. If we want to go to double up here, all of them have this Grady int going on. So as you can see, it's very useful for, um, having a lot of photos and just apply filters to them very quickly. We can save press. It's for the filters so we can apply them very quickly. And ah is very interesting over when you're a photographer and you were with lots of photos and you want you need to call her correct. Ah, lot of photos of ones because let's face it, a lot of times, each photo doesn't need a specific color correction for it alone because, ah, usually you take a lot of photos from the same place with the same illumination at the same time. Mostly so, Ah, with the same color correction you can be, you can apply to a lot of images and they will only look similar, you know, because sometimes it happens that if you go one by one, they kind off want Luca with same correction. Exactly right. They will, like, feel with more, you know, from different collections or whatever. And you you will have to spend a lot of time just speaking little details. So they feet with the style. All right, But in this case, you can just go ahead and apply them. Right? You can see that. Ah, I copied trailers, go to let all off them or actually slept only only this one. Let's go to the right click, develop settings, and we can reset it to go back to the original status. So what we can do is go here, develop settings, or even go to the devil up. You already we can copy them from here. Copy. Go to these other photo. We can paste them, and you can see that this photo looks a lot doctor than this one, right? Because even if it's in the same place, the sun goes in a different direction. So we can just do, you know, just increase the exposure. And now they feed better. All right. So instead of having to retouch the photo from scratch, you just need to make little adjustments to the original color correction. And ah, so basically, this IHSAA the very basic about, um Ah, life room. And now, if you want to know more and learn more, you can keep watching the videos. This introduction video was just to show you, you know, to get you up on speed askew open light room. Because sometimes when you open lad room ihsaa kind off, you don't know what sadly what's going on and what the devil of option IHS or library, whatever you have to figure out how important it is. So with this video, hopefully you already got an idea of how a library works and what it allows you to do. And ah, So if you want to keep letting, just keep watching the videos enjoy 2. Importing Catalogs: All right. So right when we open life room, this is what we see. And as you can see, we have to import our photos to the library. But before doing that, I'm going to show you what a catalogue iss. Because in light room, you can take us. Ah, you know, the catalogues is like a project where you can load. Ah, a collection of photos. All right. So for its project, you can have a different catalogue and this way, have a better organization. All right. You don't have to have every photo in your computer load in the library in light room. You can load the photos you need for a specific project in its own catalogue. All right, so for creating a new catalogue, Uh, you can say that here we have already one, which is a default one. But I prefer to create a new one, and we just need to go to file, create a new catalogue. And here we have already a folder set out for catalogs. And let's create a tutorial tutorial. Alright, And save it. You can see that light room. Ah, restores completely. That's that's because ah, when we load another cattle catalogue. It has to load different folders. It has has a low different filters and whatever. So in each catalogue, we save, like all the photos we we loaded in it. And also weekend load. Um, you know, the correction we made to that photos and everything. So it's time we way switch between catalogues. Light room has to restart from scratch. Okay, so now we are here, and we need to import some photos. So of course, you can go here and click on import. All right. We can also go here to folders and add a new folder, because here, what we're gonna basically do is to tell lead room which folders and needs to low. The photos are into it. All right, But if we go to import, we have a more selective tools for importing photos. So let's check how how this works. Let's go to import. Let's give it a minute to to load everything. Okay, so here I have my computer and I can select ah folder in my computer. In this case, I'm gonna select this one, which is a session I did the other day just to show you how it works. All right, So you can see that here. We have agreed. We see all the photos included into this specific folder. All right. Ah, here. We have this option to include the soup folders. All right, in case we want to include this. Okay, So we would load every photo into our into this folders, right? The soup folders. But I only want to load this way. All right. So what we can do here is to select the ones that we want Lebanon to load or to import to this catalogue, so we can this elect them. All right. We can just uncheck all in case we just want to import some ah, few of them that we are interested in. All right. Otherwise, we can check all of them and check or uncheck the ones that we don't want. All right. Another thing we can do is to click this button and we can just with the arrows in the keyboard. Ah, slight between the different photos so we can see ah better view off them, right? If we see and if we see them in the in the great view, we can increase the size or degrees at the size off the thumbnails. Now, another thing that we have to keep in mind is that here. Ah, we have this four options here that are not very busy able, right? It's kind off. Very easy to go past it. Right. But it's a very important option. Um, these options basically do. I'm going explain to you what it's one of these options do. So this copy is the N. J and J. What we'll do is to take the photos you have in your regional folder and copy them in the folder. The do specify here in the destination, they will copy it, be copied as a DMG photo. So you don't touch the original. Ah, these one. Ah, well, copy them. But in the same format that the originals. All right. So this one's, for example, that I R j Peck um, there would be copied Aziz apec as well. Move will take them from the original folder, cut them and pays them into the destination folder. And our will basically work direly with the originals. Right? Keep in mind that even if you were with the originalist you want change the originals themselves because, ah, labrum says the changes into the catalogue and then you on Lee, um, overwrite or sport the images once. Ah, they are retouched when you want them to be sport. All right. So even if you have to, your photos in the catalogue with changes in everything ah, they won't be They won't replace the original ones. Right? So, um so yeah, so usually I use that because, you know, I already loaded these photos in the folder in which I want my computer to have these photos. All right, so I don't need to copy them to any other place or whatever, but it's, ah, very useful, though, that this move option Let's say that you have them endure as the cause from the camera. You can just let move and, ah, tell light room where you want this photos to go in your computer, right? So it's ah, it's pretty useful. It's pretty useful that I'm going to say at, so I don't have to specify a destination or whatever, because it's gonna use the origins and click import. Also keep in mind, I almost forgot that here you can apply press sets and stuff to all the photos that you import this time, right? Or metadata, keywords or whatever. We're going to see that through the tutorials. But, ah, just keep in mind. You can apply presses, you can create your own press, it's and we're going to see how to create your own press. It's later, so let's click on import, and we already have a lot of photos in our library. So in the next lessons, we're going to see how to navigate through the library and everything, and we touch our photos. 3. Navigation and Selections: So let's see how to navigate through our library and watch our photos. Ah, and see how to select them. So here we can just scroll down and up to see all of our photos. I'm gonna just make the family s a little smaller, so, uh, we can see more of them at once. Now, with right click, we can just open different options for its photo. Most off them. We're going to watch them see what they do in, ah, future tutorials. But ah, this one's we can select. With left click, we can select more of one than one with the control breast. OK, so if we press control, we can say that more than one. And if we want to just select for example Ah, several ones in a row, we can just quick shift and click on the first click on the 1st 1 and press shift and click on the last one. And it was let also the ones in the middle. All right, this is how we select. Ah, a row off photos. Okay, so why do we still let files? Because later, when we have ah setting supply, we can just go ahead and apply the same setting to several photos. All right, so we don't have to go one by one. Changing the settings. Now, you can say that if we select several photos, let's let some off them that are, uh, actually similar for someone. Let's say I want to compare these four photos, okay? So I can't go just here, because now we are in the grid view. I can just go to the loo beer, and this will allow us to see Ah, our photos in a full view. Okay. So I can go with the arrows in the keyboard and scroll through them to compare them. Now, as we have four photos selected, we are only going to look between them if we ah if we go with the arrow keys. Okay. Otherwise, now here we have this slide, we can select different Ah, once, Ok? And if we only select one, we can just go through all our library with the arrow keys, as you can see. Okay. So we can also click here. Ah, now we can't quick here on select and let one quicken candidate here in this window and let a different one And this way we can compare two different photos. Also, we can go to this Ah, to this view here so we can see all the photos I selected. Okay. So we can just take a look at different photos at once. For example, let's say I want to just ah, see several ones. So light room will arrange them so I can see all of them in the same screen. And if I keep on in a lot of them, they will be smaller and smaller and smaller, right? So login will raise them so I can see all the selected files at once. Kansas useful to previewing the the selected photos for our final catalogue. All right, let's say that we made ah, a lot of photos from a wedding or something. So here we can just see the better the best ones and organize them or whatever. Okay. And, ah, we can take them or not. And I've been to collections and everything, but ah, that's for a different Ah, different lesson. All right, so Ah, this is basically how we can navigate through Ah ah, through our library. Okay. We can just click. And here you can see it. Assume so if we left click assuming and with hand we can click and drag to pawn the view. Okay, also, here we have this navigator that is you can see Ihsaa allows us to go through our saying And here we have different options to see how we want our image to be displayed, For example, is one will feed the longest side. This one will feel the screen. You can see there is no borders anymore. This Ah, the rial, Uh, size. And this is 1/8. All right, here we have more different dimensions. This is the health. Okay, this is 1/4 isn't the eighth part. Okay, so as you can see Ah, it's ah, very basic. And the were probably don't see a lot off. Ah, useful things that to do with this kind of, you know, for selecting stuff and everything. But later you will see that this is very, very powerful because we can organized our photos. We cannot them to re collections with this button. We can talk them. We cannot keywords to them. We can Ah, there is a lot of things to do. All right, Also, you can see here that Ah, we can sing satins between different photos so we don't have to apply the parameters and the color corrections, everything to ah to all our photos one by one, we can just they want. And if there are all the similar photos, we can just synchronize the standings with that one. So Ah, yeah, Let's go to next chapter and see how to flag Laval and everything with the photos. 4. View Options: So now we know how to navigate through our view. Let's see how you can use Thomas the how the view works because there are, ah lot of parameters that you can change. So if you press on right click here we have here the BUE options and I'm sure they are also here. All right. And let's see view options. There you have it. Also, you can press control J Apparently so usually come view options And you see this window this window let us. Ah, just how you want the review and the little beauty to be working Alright for sample, we can make that the show clickable item some mouse over Onley. This means that now a so you can see the rating and all this stuff only appears when we are on top of the photo. We can just disable this option and it's always there. Okay, this is my preferred This way. Now this is the team amount when we apply a caller to an image or something later, we are going to see how to apply callers to images and stuff, not colors to the images cell, but just us a label. So we know that this photo has some meaning. Like, you know, green if we like this photo or whatever, So this is amount off tinting right by default is a 20%. We can't even disable that. All the thinking now. Ah, we can show image influence on tool tips. Right. So if we keep it here, we can see some details on the image on the tool dip. And, well, a lot of stuff like that for sample. We can Let's say activate this to see the name of the file on top of the off the photo, you can see how it appears there and the even we can select here the type of data that we want to show their Okay. Also the same with this. If we disabled rotation when we go here, the rotation batons here are not there. And while some more options here is, you can see the comp itself and responded cells. This is like a bigger sale and displace some information about the image. All right? And, ah, we can't even, you know, decide here which kind of information we got from that friend that part off the expanded cell, but at this point. I don't want this. I just going to show this and here you can't even Ah, you see the index number that appears here? Okay, we can show you. Don't hide it. And we can decided here as well. If we want that these numbers to appears, I find them useful. Useful? I mean, uh, for the most part, I find the defaults pretty useful. Okay? Because these numbers help us when we are looking for a photo or whatever. If we remind the number of the photo, it's, ah, kind of easier to not get lost in your library if you have a lot of photos. Okay, so it's ah, pretty regal. Now, if we go to loop you, he would can also So let some information like here for when we play HBO's HD videos. OK, we don't have ah, very powerful computer. We can switch this off. So the HD videos Ah, you know, I mean, we can keep it turned on, and we will have a powerful computer weekend. Turn it up because we're going to play the HDB Dios at full re solution so we can show more information here. Here we can decide the information that we that we want, So so, yeah, it's ah said the view options. So ah, you can see it's very good stomach trouble. But as I said, but the most part, for the most part, the defaults are pretty good. So ah, customize it as you like. 5. Multiselect: In the previous video, we saw how to select and view photos. But now I'm going to go a little farther in the selection tools in life room because there is something called the Multi Select and, ah, there's something pretty interesting. So, um, let's see what the multi select is and what it's for. So as you already know, we can't let several photos of once here in light room so we can just left lead on this one . Go here, press shift and left lead on this one, and it will select this range off photos. Okay, so now you can see that these ones are kind of light grey, while this one is a lighter grey, Um, by default light room, select a. So highlight that the 1st 1 that we select okay, in this case, is this number one. OK, the number one photo is the one highlighted. I think the technical name is the most selected one because it's, like, you know, more selective than the rest of the selection, eh? So what this means is that for some of the options in library, Lightman will take the settings from these photo from the highlight of one and apply to the rest off the selection. So let let me show you how to change the highlight of one. You can just left click on a different photo from the selection, and you can see that the highlight of one changes. Now, if you select another one outside off the selection, Lightem will just, you know, reload the selection from scratch. Also, keep in mind that there is a difference between clicking on the photo itself and in the cell. Okay, view, click on the cell. You can see that we change the selection even if it was selected already. Ah, we switch, you know, we delete the selection and so let this new one. All right, so for changing it to the highlighted, we need to quick inside the photo. Now let's see what Ah, the effect of this is So let's say, for example, I would let this photo and the let's increase a lot the exposure now press shift. So let this one. So now we have this one as a highlighted one and these other wounds as the selection. So if we go here and click on sync settings, we can see here that we can, um, turn on or off. Ah, types off statins from the photo to see what we want to synchronize, we click on synchronize as you can see the exposure off all the other selection. Ah, turned up a swell to fit the settings in this one in the highlight of one. So this is Ah, something a little more advanced for the for the selection so we can just reset. All that's right. Okay. And this is what it is called the multi selection. Ah, in life room. 6. Labels: So now let's see how labeled pork because they are very useful as later on. Once we have set up some labels and the the rating off our photos and everything, we can just use filters that we're going to learn in the future lesson to just so let the ones that we, uh, you know, for assembles let the ones that half five stores This will only display the ones that have have remarked with five stars, right? So these settings and the labels help us organize our library and reach faster the information that we need. So let's double click this to go to lube you because we have here down here, though these labels and options in a very quick way on the very visible. All right, then we go back, we will go back to the great view, and I will show you how to use all that labels in this view. So first we have the flak air and the rejected. All right, So when ah, we can flag photo, let's say that we liked it so we can flag it or we don't like it at all. We can market Market Market has rejected Sorry. So down here you can see that this photo have Ah, has a black flag very lethal down there. Okay, so this is not very basic allows. You can see. So if we go through our library, we're not going to be very effective. Bischel, who fight this? Ah, black flag. But what it will do is that with filters later on, we can just ah, hide or show only the ones that have been flecked. So that is why this will be useful in the future. So just left click to slept one and left. Click it again to remove it, right? The same with the rejected one. Now the rating is just too said like the quality of this photo. So let's say that we like this one a lot. We cannot five starts to it. And if we just like it Ah, somehow we cannot three stores. And if we don't like it, it'll just leave it with one or even cereal can We can just the left click and slide to just the increase or the quiz rating. And now we have the colors. The colors will help us. Very Bischel e Ah. When? Ah, going through our library. Because if this is red, let's let the different photo you can see that here is also marked a threat. And if we go to the great view, you can see very clearly that this photo has been marked as red. So which person can apply, like different meanings to which caller. So, for example, I usually use green color when I like a photo a lot, or when it will be useful for me. All right. And red one when it's not useful at all. All right, So when I scrapped through our through my library I know. Ah, the first site. Which photos? I've marked as useful or not. Okay, so this is up to you how you decide to use this caller's. And then finally, we have these two options here to rotate our image. Right. So let's say that we captured this photo with the camera in a radical way, and ah, it doesn't automatically detected it, so we can just go here and okay, team the other side and rotated. Okay, so this is very you see? Now let's see how to apply these labels in the grid view because we can us? Well, very, very fast. In a very fast way. So he would can rotate photos. You can see it. Let's make the thumbnails little bigger so you can see it more clearly. So here we can rotate our photos. There we go. Okay. Here we can by left clicking and dragging, we can increase or decrease the rating you can see here. We can just apply a different color like blue, for example, that we have a blue This option here. We're going to see you later because it's for adding it to the quick election. We're going to see what collections are later, and here we can flag it. Okay, Like this flag is usually used when, you know, for Gwen is because light with miss very used for for weddings and things like that. Okay, Because in a wedding, probably the the the the bride and the boyfriend. I don't know how they're calling English. Doesn't matter. They come in and they say, Okay, I like this one. Okay, so we flag it. I like this one. I like this one, but this one I don't like it that much, so we can flag it has rejected that. We saw Ah, in the in the loop you. But here we don't have ah rejected black. So how we do it, we can alter and left leak it. And this one is rejected and you can see how it has been obscured. So it doesn't take so much attention already. So then when we go through our library, we know sadly which photos Our client Ah, picked and one and the ones they rejected. So we want we know already in which ones we have to work. Okay, so then for removing this ah rejected flag, we can just left click it and the same with these ones. We can go here and blind non to have no color in it. Now let's see also how to remove photos because this is something that usually we want to do. Maybe we don't like them at all. Okay, so here, for example, take a look at these photos. Okay. There are this one, this one and this one. Okay, I made them on purpose so I could just go here and show you how to lead them. Right? Because they are completely the focused and ah, I don't think they're gonna be useful any time soon. So what I want to do is to lead them. I can just right click and down here. You probably don't see it is the remove photos option. Okay. Alternatively, we can just go ahead and press the lead in the keyboard and light. One will ask us for a conformation before removing them. Now, we have different options for removing these photos. We can remove them. Ah, here with the remove option, which will only take them out from our life room catalog. But they will be kept in the disk in case we want to keep them there. And this option will delete them from this as well. Because these photos, for example, are completely crappy. I don't want to use them now or in the future. So I know that I don't have any interested on keeping that this one's in the disk, so I can just go here and lead them from the disk so they will be taken out from our library. And that's well delivered from our catalogue. Now, Um ah. Some people is sometimes a little confused because how to save changes here, Right? I already delete several photos. I Let's say I already have added ratings to these ones and whatever. So how can I save this? Ah, changes. Uh, you didn't have to. You don't have to. That's Ah, that's why you're probably confused. Oh, I cannot. Okay, so here, if we go to file, you can see that we don't have an option to save. Our catalogue is because all of the changes are safe automatically as we do them. All right. So keep in mind if you remove a photo if you want to bring it back. Ah, in a future session or whatever, you have to just import again, right? So let's go to import. Ah, go again to the, you know, to the folder and selected again. So we would need to go here, and he did You see how all the photos these photos are already secured because they are already in my library. All right. And the ones hide leaders are not here because I deleted them from the disk. Okay, Now, let's say that probably you added more photos here because you took another session with your camera and added more photos into this folder. So you can go and just click here to display only the new photos that we don't have any new photo here because I didn't take them. All right, So we can just cancel this and Ah, yes. So in the nest. Ah, lesson. We're going to see how to attack. How do you stacks with the with the with life room? 7. Quick Develop: Let's see what this Ah, little pile here, the quick devil up. Ah, panel is four. Because we can go to the devil. Oh, panel. And this is where we are going to make the advanced correction of photos. We will have a lot of options there, and we're going to see it in the later videos. But this one is very brief. Develop options that well, let us make some quick and easy adjustments to our photos right away from here. All right, We don't need to go to the devil Haute and probably for just make him some correction off the, you know, the contrast, this poster and stuff, it's, ah, enough for now. So Ah, first of all this. Ah, this window here. I'm not using it because I'm not going to import photos or I'm not playing with collections or anything, So I'm just going to click this little arrow here, and we can hide that panel to gain more space in our screen. We can do the same with this one, but, um, you know, to navigate our photos. But right now, as I'm going to use it, we need it. Ah, Also review just over. The cars are over this area. It will show the menu, and if you go out of it, it will disappear. Right? So if you want to save Ah, some space in your in your screen, This is cool. But for now, I would like to have it completely showing up all the time. So we have the squeak develop options here. Ah, we have some. You know, we can apply some presents here, or we can just go to the white balance. And here, basically, we have several parameters. We can just click on this little arrows to display more or less options. All right. And as you can see, we have different parameters, like temperature, the teen exposure contrast. Very basic parameters to adjust the color correction off the image. And with this, what we can do is too quick on this arrows to increase or decrease a little with this single arrows or a lot with this, um, two arrows. Batons. So with this, we can just for assemble, uh, let's actually double click this image so we can see it. Ah, in a better way, what we're doing. So if we increase the temperature as you can see it's it's Ah warmer now or we can for sample just a teen. Okay. To what? Some agenda to it. We can increase the contrast. You can't decreased exposure, right? It weekly here with exquisite a lot. Okay, now the highlights. Let's bring down a little highlights and ah, bring now the shadows as well. Um, you know the wides in spring down the black sweet more contra statement and we can go now for the clarity to have some extra detail and stuff. So, as you can see, basically, with this, you can just do some quick adjustments right to the to the photo. Now, if you don't like it all the result or whatever, you can just go here and reset all and you go back to the original status off your photo. So this is something that you don't need to worry about when you were with light room. Because the changes you do in your photos until you export them are not harmful for the original photos in your disk. Because the changes are being applied on Lee Light room, OK, and at any point in time, you can just go back to the original status off the photo. So let's say, for example, that we make some adjustments here. All right, let's increase the shadows and whatever right just to show you. So if we go here to the grid view, you can see that down here. It's showing this little Aiken that tell us that this photo has been developed already. All right, it's not the original one, so we have deception to go here to rest it'll or we can just right click develop settings and reset the photo to its original status. 8. Keywords and Metadata: So let's see how to use keywords because they are very useful for organizing our library. So let's personal. Let's warm photo and see how we cannot keywords to it. So let's just close the it's grim and the great devil up because we need the ski warding stuff. Now there are several ways we can. We cannot keywords. One of them is just by going here and at him. Uh, house, for example. Okay, because this photo contains a house. So then later, when we go and select the house key word, we can only see the photos word where there is a house. Okay, so let's go here applied. And now it appears here. Now you can see that it has also, Bean added here in the recent keywords panel, this is very useful because when we go to another one a. So you can see the photo is similar. It was taken the same day. So it's probably is probably there is another house in this Ah, in this photo. So labrum is suggestiveness that we apply this keyword. All right, so we click it and it's being added. We can see here in this Ah, little liken down here that Ah, this photo has keywords that we can go this one as well. And here in the recent keywords, it's ah gonna show the keywords that we applied lately. All right, so for similar photos when we're working is very useful. Also, we can go ahead and add more. Key was here so we can apply, for example, on the key word. Let's say nature okay. And by default it as I had, how selected it, put it Ah, under it. Okay, we can just put it by clicking and dragging. We can put it into it or outside it. There we go. So now let's go and take, for example, these few ones were are you know, like leaves from trees and blunt. So I can just go ahead and click here to add this. Ah, this stack. Let's create another tack, for example, um plant plants And let's activate here, put inside nature Alright. If we disable it, it will be at the same level. If we enable it, it will be inside nature. So let's create it. And ah, now if we open it, we can see the ones the taxes are inside this category. This help us organize us. Well, you know, by subjects, for example, like nature or by buildings or whatever. And inside it, different types off nature, like plants, trees or whatever and the other stuff. So we can create another one which is called trees. Okay, put it inside. Nature. There we go. And for example, we cannot, um maybe asphalt let me go. Don't put it inside Nature and inside us felt let's create a new warm which is called textures and activate here putting side asphalt So there we have a lot of Ah, a lot of key was The reason why I am out in so many keywords is to show you how that they work because here now we can just filter them. So, for example, we can, uh, right asphalt. So we're only going to see the asphalt keyword. All right? Or maybe Dexter's Dexter's. So here we see the Texas inside off asphalt. So when we have, like, hundreds of keywords, probably because in big collections, this used to happen. We have a lot of key words, is very easy to just filter them to find what we wanted to do. OK, suggest disabled a filter to see everything. So we can now go ahead and we can apply more than one key word to the same would. Now what happens here for some. But I have this 31 selected. Ah, these two ones are from trees. Okay, let's make this a little smaller while these want looks like plans. Or this one, for example, is a plant. Okay, this is a plant. So we can do go ahead and ask, for example, nature. And we can't even go here. And now light will order complete because the, uh we have other keyboards there. So if we write, for example, plant Okay, you can see the ah light room is are completing the keyword because, uh, it already knows it. So we press enter answer again, and it's added. Okay. So we can keep adding more and more. Um, keyboards here. Okay, lets go outside this. We can press G to go to the greed view. Okay. Uh, all right. So let's go here. For example, this one ah needs a house or this one. Let's apply the same keywords to several photos. So when we click this house, for example, all these photos will get the key word. So now when we select the photo, you can see here I I press g before. Well, I was here instead off in the they're so I I'm gonna so let the g key word the G key word and ah, the living All right. We can also apply keywords by going here and letting here trees, for example. I want to add that tag and let's keep going, For example, this textures. Now, I decided that I don't want them to be inside asphalt, because here we have some asphalt textures, right? I called them textures because they're taking from the top, and they could be applied to a plane or whatever to create any perspective because they are , like, taken from the front of the object. So instead, I'm going to put it at the top level so I can apply this textures, um ah, keyword toe. Any other photos? So, for assemble, these three ones would be in textures and nature while, for example, these ones okay, these ones will be Dexter's and asphalt. There we go. So basically what it allows us to do now is that we can go here to the to the library filters. And here we have several things we can we can do. All right. So we can Tesco to attribute. Let me let me just look for this. No filter. - So now, once we added the key words, we can just go here and use the filters to just feel they're the ones that we wanted wanna see. So, for example, go here to the text. And here in any searchable field we can just go ahead and put the key words. So now I can start brining down, for example. Let's say I want to find in nature. Okay, So all the photos that I attacked with the nature keyword will will appear here the C I want texture for assemble. All right, so they are appearing. Even I didn't write the full, um the full keyword, for example, asphalt that we have them or house that we have been. So, as you can see is now very easy to find what we need. Okay, we can just click here in the sex and ah, we are not going to have anything already. So here as well if we go here we can't just if we ho over over one of the key words, um, light from will. Highlight. As you can see, in the 78 and nine photos, we can see how they are highlighted. Right? The ones that have this, um, this keyboard applied, and if we quick in this little arrow here, Okay, it will show. Ah, the photos inside that category. And up here we have already. You know, we can search by keyboard. He would. Okay, we can change here how we want them to appear. Okay, so here we have all the categories and hearing hierarchy go. We have them by higher, higher. Keep. So here, for example, if we search plants, only one trees house asphalt nature. Yep. So it's very easy these way is very easy. So this is in the matter data. So if we go to the manor data, as you can see, we have these meta data, by the way, is down here. Okay. Here we can have, like, different things. Ah, you know, information to the file. Some of this is the the file name. Okay, but here we cannot like another title, for example, lesson that one photo. This could be like, uh, tree leaps, Syria one or whatever. Okay, this is the caption. So Ah, the caption we want for the photo so we can see three leaves here. Here. The copyright. So I would put my name down and here, you know, copyrighted or whatever. The rating label. Okay. So you can see we cannot ah, lot off different the information to this. Ah, to this is stuff we can added the capture time or whatever. All right, the I. So if we want to correct all this information, it will help us later to just, you know, look for some Ah, you know, it is information about the photo about the image meta data. So you can see we cannot a lot of stuff. I don't usually use this, but sometimes issues will because, ah, if we have different cameras, for example, here, we could have the model off the camera right here. You can see that this ones were taken by a Panasonic BMC and stuff. Okay, the I So the millimeters off the length the exposure and stop dimensions are the photo says you can see it's ah, um, you know, can be pretty useful. The one that I find useful, though, is this one with the date? Okay, because the date sometimes help us know when we took a photo. I mean, not sometimes always, because here we have the date and the time when we created this photo so it can help us organize them. Because we can't know that some at some day we were at some point in the world and ah, you know, I just checking the date. We can see where we did it. Okay, so yep, that's right. That's it for the key words. I think that is everything. Okay? And ah, and yet we can Well, it's the last thing I think I didn't explain. This one is that we can just go right for hiding these. We can just click on that. We can just go here, press a comma and and therefore sample trees as against. He had also other completes. And this is the last way in which we cannot keywords. You can also delete some off the keywords for sample that see this one. Okay, this boot key. What? I can just delete it by Quicken, you know, selecting it and clicking here on minus and just a lead. And now it has been diluted. If we want to redo that, we can just press control, see, and and do the lead keyword there appears and here we have it again. So this is your spoof where for when you want to clean up your keywords. If you have some, you know, keep was that are not used or cables that are not, You know, you may be created them Ah, with a never or something so you can just clean up your worst space with that. 9. Painting Settings: Let's see now another cool tool from lied room, which is the paint the painter, which is some you know, on option that let us paint different settings. So, for example, we campaigned keywords. As you can see, we have been labels flax rating, less pain flags, for example. So he would cancel that if we want need flat on flat or rejected, right? So let's go aflac and paint some off the photos. For example, these one, he's one Ah, I know. And, uh, for example, this to ones so I can just left week and drug to paint that status them. For example. I can apply a label like, for example, of green label for a red label for a sample for you know, ah, just say that I don't want them. So, for example, something that is not very cool. Um, let's check. Okay, this one is not very cool, so I can paint it on red, all right? Or let's say I don't know. He's one here. I can paint it and remember that you campaign it to several ones because you can play as you can see metadata settings. Ah rating. For example, five stars so I can apply five stars to several ones with just one strokes With one stroke I can put keep keyboard's key words for example nature Alright And I cant apply nature to all these guys. Okay, and ah also these one These one these one days one and you know up here for a sample or here this one's are nater These ones says you can see it provides a very, very quickly way Ah, very quick way to add a you know, keyboard settings or different Ah stuff now, too, to deactivate the painting Okay to the activated painting, we just need to just click here or why we are painting. Just click on Don and we're done. So once you have set up like an amount off different keywords or whatever, it's very easy to go here and, you know, just click home paint keywords. Um that's a play for assemble a new keyword boot. So now I can just go here, I can paint it. They're here to this one. So as you can see now, these photos have that boot. Um keep with the plight and if we go ahead and click done, we can so that this photo you can see how this has deception, this keyboard, a plight. And we also have the boot applied down here. Here we have it. 10. Collections: Now let's see how collections work. Because there is several types of collections there are. There are the Manimal collections, the smart collections and the quick collection. Right? The quick election is very easy to use, and I'm going to show you right now how to use it. All right, The quick collection is these little symbol here. If you click it, you can see how it turns. Great. Great. Okay, we cancel that different photos, and you can see how Here the quick election has already four photos. So if we click on the quick election, only those, um, images are shown up. We can just let them go here and let's see removed from quick collection. And this way we have no Greek election already. Now the quick collection is very useful, and I let's go to all photographs. So the recollection is very useful because it allows us to, you know, select several limits is for ah, very quick purpose, a temporal purpose, right? Like we want to apply the same settings to those ones or we are interested on them right now for doing something and so we can just add them to the quick election and after we finish doing what we need to do, Yes, remove them from the quick collection. Okay, so the week election, just click here and you can click here again to remove it. Also, you can see here that this is in that collection. Now, let's see the smart collections. Small collections are right here, actually less clothes and navigators. So we have more space. So these are collections that are, you know, working automatically. So if the photos meet some kind off requirements, they will be added automatically to these smart collections. You can see how the color red images are here. These are the ones with five stars. Okay, this has Bean recently modified these ascent keywords. So let's create a new smart collection. So let's go here. And you can see how we can create a collection Ismar collection and a collection set. So let's create a smart killed collection. And let's call it, for example, um, I don't know if lacked, because we want this collection to take the photos that have been flagged. So let's go here, and we can't apply rules here. We cannot new rules. Okay. With this blast baton, it's against you cannot or, uh, elite. Um, options here. So here, instead of the rating. Let's see, for example, big flag. Okay, you can see I can pick the date of the photo. The camera info, you know, from the metadata you will be picked is picking this stuff, or it has been adjusted. Whatever. Ah, in this case, I'm gonna peak the flag, and if big flag is flagged, you can see how here you can say it's or it's not. And here is flat on flat or rejected. Okay, so let's big the flat ones and create. So now in this collection, you can just quickens rocket too. Save it into these. You know, these collections that and here we have a flat ones. So here, only the flat ones will appear. So if we click here, you can see how they disappear. Because we are unflagging them so they disappear from this collection. And if we go to allow our photos, right, old photographs. I'm gonna so let these ones and, um, just go here, set, flag, flag. And here we go. In fact, we have six photos already, and we only see the flat ones. So as you can see this is very useful to organized our stuff in different collections. Now let's go here. Where is it? So many options. Okay. Ah, Set flag. Here you are on flat. So they disappear from the collection from the smart collection. We can delete this a smart collection by their selecting it against Let it with a left click and minus. And there we go. Now let's create a model collection, so create a collection we can't even go to create a collection set create. And we can't create another collection set inside a collection set. Okay, this is just to show you that you can't create a hierarchy to just organize your library. A soup want inside this catalog in life room, right? You don't need to create all these folders in the in your hard drive for anything. Because they will be, um, already, you know, set up here. Right? So, in your hard drive, they may be all of them in the same single folder. But here you can just to organize them as you want. All right. So here, let's create a new collection. So create a collection. This will be called collection. Very original, and we can just quickens rack to just place it where we want, you know, at the top where we can go and put it inside another collection set. So in this collection, we have seen no photos, and, you know, we can go here and we can select several photos, click on them, dragged them and drop them in the collection. You can see now that we have three photos, we can do this as many times as we want. It's two guys on them to the collection. There's two guys, three guys. Okay, even, uh, maybe you can out here to a collection, maybe. Um nope. Looks like you can't. So you can't. You have to do it this way. There we go. Maybe there are options around here, too, to send them to, ah, specific collection or something. But well, I actually usually only do it this way. Okay, Just dragging and dropping because it's really fast, right? It is a lot faster than just have to, you know, go to ah, Manu and select from Elise. Because when you have different collection sets, selecting from a list would be, you know, like going through different sub levels off options and stuff. So you can see that right now that we have here different collections, you can now go here and rename it. Engage me. We wanna make something more original, like original collection. Mm. Sorry. He has very original. So if we click on this collection, we're only seeing the photos that we have inside. That collection can go here, too. Old photographs to see everything. But if we go to our collection, you only see that. So let's believe these collections that delete and we are as we started. 11. Filters: filters are very important to again. Find would you need very quickly. So once you have catalogued your photos like that in tax to them or, uh, you know, rating them, because that is also important. Um, adding labels like green, for example, or something. Yellow. Okay, once you have your photos already checked and added all these information to them, um, you can use filters to find very quickly, would you need? So let's see how to use filters. You can just quick here in text and untaxed as we did before in the in the, you know, the Detroit about the tax. You can just go here and look for something like Dexter's, for example, and only the this is looking for a keyword. Okay, you can look into the title and looks for look for something like, I know a number for a sample because these are, like, taking with a camera. And the names probably are like, uh, numbers mostly go. Okay, this has one. Okay. So you can see That's why I went and searched for keywords. Okay, Because searching into the keywords, I know it. Sadly, when I have here, if we have the photos correctly named we could also look for the title. But here in the keywords, let's search for nature, for example. So only the ones inside nature that has a keyboard nature will appear. Okay, if we click here, we lived this. If we click here again, we just open and close that filter. We can search for attributes, Okay. Like, ah, let's say that we want to check the flat ones. Okay? Like, let's flag a few photos. All right? Like this. And let's talk some off them. Us rejected. Okay, so this way we can just go here and lead the ones that have been flat. Okay, here is everything. And this one's are the that. See? Okay. We can quick and ah, to activate and deactivate. So this one's has been rejected. This is everything. And these are the flat ones. So we can just click again to not slept anything. Now we can sled it by the rating, so these will take everything from one to stop on one. Starting higher for these from three stores in higher. Okay. And this only form five stars, you know, said here is greater than or equal to. Okay, so if we take equal to equal to, we can go to three and it will only show the ones that are in three stars, not three and higher. And also we can just is less than three. So we would see everything has that has less than three stars or less than one start. Okay, So is greater or equal Now, With this, we can just speak the ones that have bean labeled. Okay, so now I have the shown the ones that are labeled with red and green. If we click on red again, only the green ones will show up. Maybe the Jell O's Okay, So by quicken you activated and by clicking it again, do the activated. If you click several ones, you can see that we can show the green Jell O and red ones. Okay. And this is for master forgers and stuff we're not going to enter into. That s so not thing is the metadata. Now the metadata uh, let us ah, search from some, you know, inside the metadata off the photos to search for the some off the stuff for stumble. Here we have the date we can search for dates that in this kind of look, I only have, Ah, the photos that I took this day. All right, so Ah, you know, it's if this doesn't make sure now here. If we had photos taken from more than one camera here, it would appear, right. So right now, we only have this camera, right? This is the unknown lens. And ah, you know, if they are marked is green, red, yellow or no label. This is the ones that have been labeled. Now we can just go here and select another where you're doing it, like the file type. So all of them are J pack. All right. But if you have more file types, they would appear here or you concerts by focal length, maybe rights of here. And see 4.3 millimeters. We have 64 images, right? 28 with five millimeters. So as pretty useful. The flash state. So only one of the photos fire. This was the first photo, and I had the the flash activated. After this one, I realized it was activated that and I deactivated it. So this ah, information is time information that guess is stored in the metadata once we fired the camera right when we shot to the camera. So Ah, so, yeah, what then? We can just search for days from here. If we have deep GPS data or the mop location or whatever, you know, the Creator, Aspens radio. If they have been treated or devil, haute or used some devil oppress its So yeah, it's ah, very interesting. We can just go here and look for keywords as a sui did before. We can drug to make this bigger. So here we have the textures, mood trees, plants against the all kinds of information. Now this ah way that you know, it's very I find it very useful sometimes because we can search, for example, for keyword. And let's say dexterous. Okay, so only text will show up. Now we can go here because here we have some defaults for the filters so we can just go here safe Keuren settings as the new president. Let's call it Texas, for example, create. And now we have this cast. Impressive. All right, so here for a sample weekend search, the ones there are flat. Right? This on some defaults presence by the exposure info uh, you know, the ones that have bean rated? Okay, Flat field yourself, and we don't want to use fielders at all. And we can now search print textures. And as you can see, this is the filter that we created. Okay, so this is now a default. Now, once we have it selected, we can just go here and we can rename it to put another name to this. Press it. We can delete this present if we don't need it anymore to jazz the lead. And now this is not oppressive anymore. As you can see, it doesn't appear here. Was it? Have being raided, so you can see is very useful. Okay, When you have ah added jury information, it takes time to add all the information to the photos. But once you have, you have added that information is very easy to search for things when you need them. You can also select your filters down here. Okay? So you can activate them, deactivate them same with stars and with colors. Or you can select presets for fielders down here. Also, you can enable and disable the filters here in this ah little slider. 12. Basic Develop: So let's go to the core off light room and see how we can develop our forwards to color. Correct them. So one of the first options, Either we can right click here and go here to develop settings, and we have some settings. So two quick develop, you know, our image. So we can If we made some development on it, we can reset it to the original status. Ah, we can just copy the sentence from one image and base it in another one. If we already developed ID, we can sink the settings. Ah, to you know, using the multi select to selecting a lot off images or several ones. And the highlight of one will sink its settings with the rest of them. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just go back to the multi select Medio and I will explain you there. We can auto white balance or the tone, convert to black and white and apply presets. So let's pick this photo. Let's click on devil up. All right. And here we are now. Ah, you can see this. Ah has changed. Okay, here we have our Easter graham and first of all. I'm gonna explain to you what the instagram is, right. So this will, um, show shadow clipping if we have. Ah, you know that there you have some highlights in the interview. So this will show where the blacks are too black or where the whites are really white. All right, so this is the highlight clipping. And this is the shadows cleaving that you can see now that as the images pretty exposed, the shadows clipping That's not show anything. So here in the Instagram already, we can just start. As you can see, by the cursor, we can start the sliding and changing some parts of the image. So here in the blacks, if we click and drag, we can just turn up and down the blacks. Here's the shadows. The exposure off the image. It is the highlights and the whites All right, So, as you can see, it is, um, you know, pretty instead to slide here and we changed. I really the Easter Graham. Right? But if we want to have more control over, it is better that we go down here into the basic Let's ah, just collapse the instagram. So these tools here. We're going to see them in later videos. So here, in the basic ah, color correction and stuff here we have. We can switch between color and black and white if you if you like to. And here we can change the temperature and the teen now the temperature. If we increase it, we'll turn more yellowish. If we decrease, it will turn bluish. And with the tent we will at magenta or green color to our image. So by mixing this Ah, this Ah different. Ah, sliders. We can achieve almost every move we want for our image, but we can't makes ah, blue and green or red and green Ah, I mean yellow and green, yellow and magenta over one, some kind of orangey, like right. So, as you can see, there is, ah wide range of options out there. And then the rest of the options this options here, as you can see, are kind of self explanatory. All right, With this one, we can just increase or decrease the exposure he began in Greece or degrees. The contrast, the highlights. Okay, let's take them down a little. You can obscured the shadows a little bit turn up the Weitz entering down the white, the blacks to give it more contrast. Also, the clarity is a very interesting option is an option like something like the sharp in the photo shop. Right. So we can sharpen our images, you can see, or we can blew it out. So keep in mind a dude on probably want to go too far, because you can see it looks some kind of painting, but it looks interesting as well. So depending on, would you want to get, you can go to the top or you can just keep it down. Now keep in mind that you can justice light. This is lighters by going this way, okay, is lighting in them or just by clicking and dragging the number. Or we can click and insert the number manually. For example, 50%. Okay, 13. Presets: we already have a color correction apply to this image. So let's see how to create a preset from this so we can apply later to other images. So we don't have to go one by wine, changing all these settings. So we have to just apply the preset and then just if needed, make some little adjustments. So here we have the many with the presets. So, as you can see, we can just create a new present. Put a name to it like reddish, for example, reddish color. Whatever named you feel, it's ah, interesting. And here we can select the folder in which we wanna ah, put it so we can create a new one or just put into the use of press. That's folder. Now you can see you can, you know, ah, activate or deactivate different options to be applied with this, um, this coloration, for example. Let's say that we don't born some parts of this to be applied to other images because we are not sure if they are gonna work. So probably we want to deactivate the clarity. So these clarity settings would be applied to the to the preset. But in this case I really wanted. So let's Greek on create. We have the reddish color. So this means that now you can go to the library, Okay? And we can ah, just select another photo and we can apply a preset. So devil ope settings, user presets, reddish color. And there we go. As you can see, it has been already applied. Now let's click here red quick, develop settings reset Because I wanted to go back to the previews status. If we go to double up, I can just go here and here You can see a preview. Ehrhoff. How is gonna look when we apply this preset? She can see. So if we click on it, it's done. And we can rest of the image as well by clicking here. Other things that you can do is to copy and paste this settings so we can go ahead, copied these settings. Okay, so let the centers that we want a copy press copy go to a different photo this one, for example, and click on paste and it will pay is the same settings to the other photo. Now, if we are not happy anymore with this Ah, with this preset, we can just live by selecting it, and it's always go here and click on the miners. Same symbol, quick it and we already don't have it. 14. Sync: So we have applied some settings to this image, so we have now color correction on it. We can see that we have a color correction down here in a little symbol over the ah image. If we press G, we can just go to the greed view and we can see this little symbol in every photo that has some adjustments on it. So we very quickly know if some photo has been corrected or not. So we can't let this photo and we pray we can press e to go to the ah, full view again. We can go to devil up to go to this, um, to devil abuse. So we can just So let the range of photos and make sure that this one is the highlighted one, right? Because when we quick in an image inside a selection, you can learn more about this in the multi select video before. So, um, we make sure this is the main one and we can click here on sink with the let the options that we want to sink present, synchronize And there we go. All this images have being now applied the same settings. Okay, so as you can see, is very interesting, because photos made in the same ah area with same lighting are now kind of very similar when, as you can see here, if we reset it, it's very different. All right, so we can just so let these two guys make this one. Ah, highlighted present, sink, synchronize. And there we go. Alternatively, we can reset it. We can just let this one settings copy settings, so let the ones we want a copy. So let the other one right click settings based settings and there we go. Something also very interesting with the synchronization is that we can turn on the auto Sync to sing to too great the settings for several images of one's. So, for example, let's say that I want this image. Okay, This few images were taken almost in the same place and everything, so I can just click sink, make sure that the active one is the this one, the one that we have selected. Click on Sync, Synchronized and all these fathers will take the same settings. But not only that, if we activate deception here, which is the artist sink, we can just keep tricking them and, ah, take a look at the expo shooting all these photos. All of the photos will get the same exposure values, All right. And so if we keep tweaking this photo, all of the rest will take the same settings. This is ah, very useful. As first I believe the client comes and, ah, after we already color corrected all the album. Ah, he wants us to to have different settings who can just let the whole album or the a range of photos that have ah, seems there settings turn on the auto sync and ah, you know, we can keep going The final option to copy and paste that's reset it again. It suggested. Let this one okay. We can't copy the settings. So let the ones we want a copy, go to the other image and quicken paste so you can see a lot of options to apply very quickly. Different settings to a lot of images. So you can see, for example, these three ones has the same Ah, you know, the same kind of lighting and stuff so we can just make a very quick ah adjustment here. Contrast. Squeeze a little the highlights. Cui's make the shadows, doctor a little right. So we have more. More interesting image. All right, so we have this image now, call it corrected, so we can just copy Go to these one. Okay. These one is kind off. Ah, you know, similar to the original one of the previous one. So we can quicken paste, and we can go ahead and make some little adjustments depending on this image. Right? But we don't have to start from scratch. We already have a base color correction. Same with this one. We can face it. They are done on the same place. So as you can see, it basically works out of the books because, you know, we have very different, very similar setting. Sorry. So we can just make very quick corrections here. And also, if we are, like trick in this Ah, different photos, they will look the same. Because if we go one by one making them cool sometimes we will find that later on. When we compare wants to the others. Um, you know, they may be a little off. Some may be warmer. Some maybe cooler or maybe some off them. Half more contrast or whatever. So with this option we can just copy the same color correction from one image to others. 15. Snapshots: Let's see now what a snapshot is because he's very, very useful. Let's say we want to test like different settings for this image. So right now we're kind of happy with this result. But we want to keep tweaking stuff, but we want to save thesis status off the image because maybe later we want to go back to it. So let's go here and create a new snapshot. And let's say fit, uh, with a name like, for example, cool settings. Syria one. So now if we go here, we can see that here we have a snapshot. All right, let's keep tweaking stuff. So we increase the exposure of the queen's the contrast Turn the highlights on, right? Not not trying to make it cool. Just make a different adjustment. So here we go. Cool settings. Syria to, for example. And now we can't give tweak and stuff to make you like, uh, I don't know, look a little during the night. Almost. Uh Okay, so let's save another one night. So now if we just over the mouse over this here in the little navigator, we can see the different settings. So if we go back here we will reset the settings to that specific status going back to this cool status. Here we have this 2nd 1 and here we have the night one. So this is very useful when you want to test different versions of the same image. Ah, and also, you know, if you find something that is cool but you want to keep tweaking a little more and the probably then you don't like the new tweaks. You can just click and go back to it for the leading snapshots. You can just click here and lead them so very useful feature. 16. History: Okay, so let's take a look at the history, because it's also another pretty interesting stuff. Ah, we can just go here and adjust a little this image so you can see it against you here in the history, some things that start to appear as I took the image because the contrast decrease the highlights and this pusher and increase the clarity. Okay, so we have this and here in the history, you can see how it appears every step I did on the settings off the image. So we can just if we over the mouse over dis options, you can see how, here in the little preview, it shows up the changes. So if we go back to this point, we can click it and go back to that step. All right, this is very useful when sometimes you are kind of happy with this and you keep tweaking, and then oh, you don't like it and you forgot to save a snapshot, so you can just go back in time and save a different step. Also, you can right click on this and create a snapshot from this point. If you if you like it, okay? And that's just ah, say viewed as, for example, cool history. Step, sir. One. So now we have a snapshot from that point in time, But we can't go here and keep tweaking because we already saved it. And also, if, ah, you know, sometimes we want to just Ah, you know, even if we rested the image, we quicken rested, we go back to the original status. And here the recent settings is another step in the history so we can go back and see the previous steps. Also, we can just click here and the lead the history all together. 17. Compare: sometimes is very interesting to just compare an image with the previous status or with its original status. So we can actually tell the difference between the with sentence we have made lately to the photo. So we have an option here. Light room with allows us to compare, which is this We can't click it. And there you see the before and the after off the image. So this, uh, tell us basically we can see the held image looks after the settings we applied and the original one here we can just the copy, the before settings to the after and the vice versa. Where we can copy the settings to there we can swap them. All right. Ah, also, we can cycle between different before and after. Actually, let's let's do this. I didn't want to do it because it actually changes the settings and stuff, but ah, what we can we can do that. So, as you can see these copy the sentence for on the before status to the to the previous one , and we can just press control c two. We do that and do the other Ah, the other way around where we can quick apply these settings to the before status this before status. We have to keep in mind that it's not The original one is the before his status. And we can set another time in the in the history to just ah, you know, be displayed here. And I will show you how to do that in a moment so we can swap them. So we have the before and after again. And here we can just keep clicking here to swap between different ways of comparing the image. So here's you can see, is the before and after. All right, so it's Ah, very instinct. We can ah Simien. And in one side of the image, we're seeing the original status. And then the other one, we're seeing the after status. This is the same as the 1st 1 but in vertical and this is again the same. Okay, so different ways off. Just comparing the image. Now this before status by default is the original status off the image. But we can go here to the history or to ah, previews. Um, previously snapshot. Okay. And so let this one as the copy, um snapped a snapshot settings to before. Okay, So as you can see now, we can compare that. Ah, status off these snapshot with the other settings we have done into two to the image, right. So we can try to, for example, make it look a little cooler or whatever, you know. So it's ah, very useful to have it here. Ah, also Ah, we can Let's say that we want to go back to the orginal status off the image so we can't go to the first point to the in the in the history. All right? And just copy histories. Step sat in, stood before, and there we go. And actually, this is not the the rial version. This is the version. After applying this temperature change to the original one, My mistake. So what I need to do, he suggests go here probably and select the reset. Okay. And, um, copy, history sentence to before and after that, we can just, you know, I made ah wrong of run turn. But after that, we can just click here and ah, keep, uh, keep tweaking stuff. Right. And you can see that the points after this Let's repeat that. If it didn't. Ah, if it wasn't clear. So if we re setted, let's say that we have this. Ah, the stones. Here, let's make it more evident that it has bean Ah, you know, adjusted so we can reset it. And now here we have the reset settings here in the history so we can click on shadows the previous status. And there we are here, in this time of the history before we apply the reset settings. So here and the reset satins we have in the before status, we have the reset settings. Okay, We can just go here and copy history. Step to before, Okay. To make sure we have here the original status off the image and that now, here we can keep tweaking stuff, and you can see that the reset was ah replaced by the exposure change. Because the history can only exist. Ah, in one direction. So if we go back in time and take something, the ones that were after that disappear. All right. So this ah, critical way of comparing stuff, and also if you ah, cat off. You know, if you know that you're going to need the original image at some point, you can just make a snapshot. All right? When you before you start tweaking it. So that's it. 18. Tone Curves: Let's see now in this video how to use the tone cures it. This is one of the waste of correcting color that I like the most. Ah, let's just collapse this and less collapse the basic. Now, keep in mind that apart from the basic car corrections, every every everything else is some, like some kind of modifier or filter that you can turn on and off. So you can just, let's say, if we made some adjustment to the tank, your we can just go to this little slider, click it and it will not have any effect, right? A weekend turning on to just go back. Okay, so, uh, lead this control point. All right, So let's see how these works. Okay, Let's Ah, here. If we click this, we can adjust callers by dragging in the photo. So let's say that we want to increase the highlights we want to weigh. Go to a highlight. We click and turn up or down. Ok? So as you can see, that ah, brighter part goes down and also modifies the cure. Now, here is a doctor part. Okay? This a wider part. This is a kind of the meat part. So as you can see, it's, ah, something pretty interesting. But I I don't actually use that a lot, right? It's ah easier. If we go here now, we can flatten the cure to just go back to the ah, to the default cure. So I prefer to trick it. Ah, right here. So right now we're tweaking the RGB colors, we can treat them separately and we're going to see them. See it now. So, basically, let's say that we want to give some contras to this image. So we click here, turn it up and click here Drug and turned this down. We have added a lot of congress. Now how this works Well. Ah, here in the left side, we have the doctor colors and in the right side, we have the brighter colors so we can turn the cure of defines where this area is. So the white is at the top and black is at the bottom. So if we turn the back up, you can see how we cannot go past the next point. Okay, so you can see how the blacks have bean increasing right now as some ah bright tone on them still here. So this is still some black areas, some dark areas. So if we turn them up, you can see how the doctor areas ah, go wider. And if we turned them down, they go darker. So if we turn this here is the bright part. Rights of bright parts are like very, very white, as you can see, if we go to left meat white are like race are also, um you know, going wider, we can turn them down to get some interesting effects. And we get down this option, you can see how the whites turned great. So this is basically how they work. So if we increase the brighter part and the crease, the darker parts we're getting some contrast is like a NASCAR. Not to say that we want to add some Ah, you know, red color to it. So I can just click here in the middle and turn apple little and this will make the holy image get some more red. We can mix it with blue, for example. Decrease the blue. So we get something even more Redditch. Or if we decrease a lot the blue we get something orange because we are taking all the blue colors down in the image. Or let's say that we want for assemble to get some ah, blue collar in the in the brighter parts. But in the doctor bars, we want to take it out. So, as you can see, we have in this right apart and up here where the highlights are, we have some blue. But in the rest of the photo, we're taking it out off the image. And with green, we can take between one and the other, right, because green is some kind of a transition between the red and white. Okay, of course, if we increase the green, we take, we get a lot of green, right? Basically, here is like some kind of autumn, and we increased the green. We can have more green in the leaves and grass and everything and go to the RGB and, ah, let's flatten the Q cure off again. So this would be the basic settings. So here, if we just increase this, we just make the image a little brighter. And if we do quiz it, you make it a little darker. But with this, we make it like with more conscious. So it's kind of difficult to explain how this works. Ah, but it's very technical. But as you can see, just by tweaking a little the cure, you're going to see the how it effects the image. And I really love it because it's one of the faster ways to just tweak the the color. So I like a lot this basic controls because they allow you to very quickly adjust the thing . But here in the cull curbs are very, very fast. And in photo shop, I always go for the cures for doing color correction. All right. For some other tweaks, I I used another options like the Hugh ah, saturation like we have here. We're going to see it in the next videos. But here the tankers are really, really useful. And we have another options here. We can just click here, and this will allow us to just change the cure with sliders. So this, for example, basically, we define here this this Ah, four sections, right in each one of this. Ah, slightest will turn up or down each one of those sections. Okay, so here we define okay, Like this. Now the highlights. As you can see, it's showing up here in the cure. It is showing Ah, the range. It will let us change something like this, right? This is the top. This is the bottom. All right, so let's make it to the top. And if we decrease this amount, you can see how it turns the the the cure of this world. So it's kind of less interactive than well, I mean, it's ah fully interactive, of course, but I like better to go daily in and treat the cure of itself. Right with this, we have to go. But my part and this is still cool because we have a more like a more selective tweaking. But at the same time, I prefer the other option. So this is how we tweak this? Ah, stuff. We can just reset the regions. We can reset all okay. And and we can just here at some presets, like a strong contrast linear. We can turn this off to go back to this point, but we can adjust the color in the contras right here can flatten the cure because we need the photo untouched for the next videos. 19. HSL, Color, and BW: okay. Before going into the hue, saturation and luminant scholar and black and wide and stuff, I'm going to just hide thesis Panelists Well, so we can see the image a little bigger. Okay, so under the tone cure, we have the h s l, which is the hue, saturation and luminous. Or we can display all off them at once. So we here we have ah, lot of sliders. I like a lot this option because they provide Ah, very selective way off tweaking the colors and let's see how this works. So with this, basically, we have some kind of color here, and what we do is to kind of tint those specific colors in the image. So, for example, here we have two very evident ones. The other ones are not s obese people. So I will explain to you with this two collars because we have this red here in the in this banks. And we have this, um, this green color on the grass and the leaves and stuff. So let's go here and in the red. She can't say we can tend it up or down, and it will only affect this color here and it always has. It also has some kind of magenta, so we can increase it or the quiz it there and purple, maybe, or orange because it has several tones down here. So you can see it allows us to trick on Lee that those collars. But this is not really, really, um, having a very big input in the image. Right? But in the green, as we have a lot of grass and leaves and stuff, it will, of course, have a lot of effect. And you can see we can increase it and turn it to, ah, some kind of aqua color. Or if we, the Chris it, we get it some kind of Gela wish. Right? So there is very ah, very interesting. Because here, for example, we have a spring image, and here we have a not, um, image. All right, so there we go with that. Now there's another option, which is right. Azzan the tongue cured. We can click on this and we can just quickened drug in the image. So, for example, we can we hear on this green and increases or the quiz it and you can see how those lighters turn up and down well here, as you can see, turns up now as well, and it changes the image. Or here. And we can take those banks and put them more orange or more magenta and bread. So basically the color we peak that's reset the image. So basically the color we pick. Let's pick this red, for example, and it will trick that specific color in the image or less. Turn, take this win. You can see how we are now tweaking all the winds in the image. Let's go here and take this. Okay, let's click here to the at the rate that option and let's go to the saturation. Now the saturation Ah, basically makes a call or go more great with less value in the color or with more caller. So, for example, have returned up the red. You can see that now this band's hearts half Ah, much more impact in the image. All right, they stand out from the rest of the colors. The same happens with the green. Let's increase it. You can see that now. Even the green was tweaked. Here in the hue, it's now a lot brighter. It has more color in it we can to saturated completely to turn it great. Okay, which is kind of useful sometimes to just, you know, if we want to Ah, have, ah, to end up with a you know, winter image or something. We don't want the green to be completely green or or brown or whatever. We wanted to be almost white, corporate by Ah, you know, eyes. So you can see we can treat it a lot. And also, let's just take the right a little down and probably take the blue in. Great. You can see that here in this highlights there was some blue from the sky We can just to get up more saturated with more blue or make it completely black and white total So pretty instant we can do the same as the other one. I just going here and clicking and dragging and name it. You can see how we had saturation to that red colors in the banks or began out saturation here that bluish color and then we can go to the luminous and this is basically made the colors brighter. So we go to the red color off the off the luminous. We can just make it a little darker or make it brighter so you can see pretty big in. But in the image also with the green get reminded it's not going to affect the green. Did you see in this image but the green in the original limits? Because we're actually tricking this green to ah, some kind off orange like color, brownish in the from the original one, already with the hue of the of the men. So this will affect the green in the base scene. So this is, you can see, makes the green brighter or darker as we want. And we have these magenta that will affect some parts off the banks and this kind of proof in the in the background. And with these, we can use all those options at once. Okay, that's quick on this, so we don't affect the image anymore. Now let's jump to the color. This is kind of very similar. Let's reset the image so you can see it better. This kind of similar, but you can instead of going into a lot of flight of sliders. The changes are exactly the same, but did Jesse let the color here and you can apply the hue, saturation and luminous for this specific color. So if we wanted tweak the banks, you can just So let this. Okay, we can quick shift and, ah, let more than one color like this or again quickly. No, and, ah, we see all the colors. So instead of going through, you know, several options like the hue for each one of the colors and the saturation and luminous we can just go Here's led the specific color and treat the hue, saturation and ruminants with the same option that's reset it. And here in black and white begins at the black and white image. We can tweak how black him wide. It's one of the color sales. For example, the red we can make it a little brighter. The orange as well, Okay. Or 10 The green Docker. All right, so this allows us to just tweak how we want the black and white to to be output in the in the from the original image concerned that magenta, as you can see how it effects the banks or the blue. All right, we can make it black or white So these will, um, give us a lot of options to make the black and white image look like how we wanted to look . So as you can see, a lot of options to correct the colors and ah, they're pretty cool again now. Ah, we can just tweak them happen down and whatever, do whatever kind of changes we want. And after that, we can just go here and quick on this little slider to turn these changes off or on. So that's Quicken reset. Because in the next media, we're going to see this. Ah, other options. 20. Split Toning: okay. He would have another two for called correction, which is the split toning. Ah, the split Toning is something that allows us to create a toning, a different turning for the highlights and another for the shadows. And we can violence between them. So first we need to just Ah, here we can select the hue, But first we need to increase a little the saturation. If we increasing a lot, you can see the result because ah, when in Ciro, it's just applying, like, you know. Ah, on existent color. All right, so we need a little least little saturation, and you can see how here. Ah, we are. We have, Ah, the color that we're going to apply. So here we can't let another color. All right, We can pick it from here. We can peek some colors from up here, or we can just hear slide to change the hue and the saturation, the same that we would do in the slithers back there. So I'm going to check, like, two different colors. All right? Not for making the photo very cool, but for showing you the effect so the saturation isn't 100% and Now let's go to the shadows and for the shadows less speak another a different color like a blue for assemble this blue , which is 100% saturation. Okay, so now we have these two different colors for the highlights and the shadows. Highlights are red and shadows are blue. You can see how the shadows are kind of bluish. While all the bright areas are kind of Fred ish. Now what we can do is to turn the balance with the balance of minus 100. We get almost everything is blue because it's thinking only the shadows toning but 100% off . Ah, off the balance is only the color of the highlights. So we can just tweak this a little to make it go from the shadows to the highlights color. So if we turn up, you can see how we get more red and less blue. Okay, so the key here is not going too far Now, I went too far because I wanted to show you the difference. All right, but here we would take some, you know, slide legal, or like these four samples and kind of orange like and if we go to the shadows. We pick something still blue, but with less saturation. All right, maybe something like this. So now, as you can see, if we deactivated and activated is it kind of gives the image a little more instant effect , okay? And we can increase it. And this makes the image warmer because we picked ah, warm color. So this is basically what split toning iss. 21. Detail: all right, under the color corrections we have here, um, under this plead toning, we have the detail dub. Okay, now this detail top shows us a little preview off how it will look like. And we have two different options here. We can sharpen the image, and we can reduce the noise. So I'm gonna use two different images for this one for showing you the sharpening effects. Another one for showing you the noise reduction. I'm not going to entering a lot of detail of this little options and what they do. Because, to be honest, I don't know technically what they do. What I know is that tricking them, you get different results. All right, so let's Ah, let's check what they do first. Probably the default miniter. The light from this place here is probably not the best, um, part of the image. So we can just quick here and go and decide another part of the image that you know that help us to find better, right? For example, in this area, we can Ah, there is a lot of detail there, so we can see better the results of the sharpen infielder. Okay, so we can increase the sharpening, and you can see how this miniature changes here. We can also draw here to go to another place of the image. It says you can see this is some cereal. This is on the top. 150. Okay, so as you can see the images a lot sharper. But also, we got a lot more noise, right, But in the full image here again, see if we disable it and enable it. It looks good. Okay, looks pretty good. Now, we can just keep going in through the radios because these four sharpening is like doing ah , some kind of interpolation. And it that's, ah, some more contrast in some areas. And so the radios helps. Ah, you know, makes the area that life moving tabulates bigger or smaller. All right, so if we make it bigger, we get probably a more smooth result. But we lose probably some detail, As you can see there here we have a lot of detail. Let's go into this here. We have a lot of detail, but also a lot of noise. All right. And if we increase the radios, it's actually kind of Ah, if there is more Contras but less noise because it's just moving the effect because it has to do an average more space. Okay, this is like three pixels off off radius. We can increase the details. You can see this. This is, like very worst out. Okay, if we look at this detail, it doesn't look good. But if we get the full picture, if we turn this Ah, filter on and off, you can see how it changed. It looks much more sharper, right? And here, as you can see, it also loose. Ah, not very good. Okay, so that's why we need to be very careful, because if the image is gonna be what's that? This size is pretty cool. But if we put it a full screen and full HD Ah, it probably will look a little worst up. Okay, so we need to be very careful. Now, let's see the effect off this mask into this mask in what it does is kind of take out a lot of the detail and take only the more high contrast parts. Okay, so with zero, you can see that we get a lot of noise in this area. But if we increase it, it kind of smooth. Sit out because it only takes the high contrast areas in the borders and stuff. So you can see we click. And if we turn it on and off, you can see that we get a lot more detail. But as I said, we need to be careful now with this result here. Maybe we can adjust the amount. So it's not Syria, because this doesn't look very well, very good either. So we can increase it a little. So it's not really bad. And we have Ah, little more noise. More, uh, sharper image. I mean, right there we go. Okay. So now let's select another image. Like, for example, this one which is Ah, pretty dark image. Or let's maybe look at this one. Okay. Now the other one is is better. Ihsaa, doctor. Right. And this is darker. We have a lot of noise going on in these areas. And also in this ah, in these dark areas. Okay, here there is a lot of noise. So the nice reduction toe help us solve that issue a little bit again. A swell as a sharpening. Almost every option in the color correction or in light room. You need to be very careful, because if you go too far, you will make it even worse than the original. All right, so we want to be very satel and not get very excited about this options. Because if we just turned it everything up, we will get something like this, which is not very cool. But if you look at it Ah, from this distance, it kind of lose. Cool. Okay. So again, it also depends on what you want the image for, because, as you can see here, this Ah, this is completely washed up. So you don't want that, but well, it depends on what you wanna achieve. So we got a lot of noise here. Let's pick that area in the image to just see this noise. Okay, Maybe in the capture, you see it slightly less. Um, you know, with less contrast. But ah, here. There is a lot of noise, so let's just increase. This says these in Greece is the luminous off ah noise. And it detects where there is more contrast and stuff. And so, in a very subtle, conscious it kind of smoothed out. It blurs out the stuff so we can if you increase the Contras, you can see that we have, like, patches there, which is actually normal because we have a lot off leaves and stuff. But it doesn't look cool with this. We can, like, keep more detail or if we turn it off, we can see in these borders here that everything else kind of blew us out. So we don't want to go too far with that contrast. And these one, we can't keep going with the color. You can see how the color also Smoothes out. So this basically reduces the noise in the luminous. This reduces the noise and details. This reduces the noise in the Contras parts. And this is the color tales again. So yeah, this is the more for the luminous and this more for the colors. I guess this is Ah, again, I didn't investigate a lot on this technical options. I just know that if you tweak this stuff, you get like, different results. So as you can see if this ah blew us out the color and take some take out some impact on it this morning this the amount of detail. And if we go out now around here, let's just turn it on. Enough says you can see it's something very subtle. I guess that you can see it in the capture as well. But here we got a lot of noise. And if we activate this, we have much less noise, OK? And if we reduce the the concerts and the details here and increase the smoothness and in the luminant, the luminous is basically the option that do the most. Aziz, you can see it kind of blew us out. Everything all right? So we need to be careful with that one. So something like this is kind of interesting. And if you look at that, we turned it on and off. Now you can see a big difference between the image with the noise and image. The noise. All right, so this option is something that you have to be very careful with, but, ah, if you have a lot of really a lot of noise in a photo, probably if you took it with Ah, not very good camera during the night or stuff. You will get a lot of noise So with this, you can kind of trick it. And even if you know to prevent blowing everything out, probably you don't. Ah, you cannot take all the noise out, but probably you can make the image a little better, all right? And reduce a little the noise with this options, and that's it. So resident and that's it. 22. Lens Correction: Okay, so if we keep going down in this menu, we reach the point. Sorry. Where is the point off the lands Corrections. Now, the less corrections we have. Thes basic panel that this is something that ihsaa mostly automatic, right? We just need to enable here with we want to do I want to show you. Now what constraint Crop iss. And now where the labrum will do is to detect the e major features in the image and try to level it and, ah, you know, arranged to distortion and all that stuff. So, um yeah, that's right. So we can go to automatic and you can see how the image was distorted in the perspective and everything to try to level it up, and it worked. Ah, pretty well, actually, these lines are now completely straight, right? This lines are vertical and the or isn't is completely or isn't all this police vertical? So Yeah, it's pretty cool, because if we said them off, you can see how they were, like, not completely straight. And there is some distortion in the image, so Yeah, it was pretty good. And it works. Ah, mostly good. When you have a lot of buildings and and the very co features that the lightning can detect . Because if you have something a little more in perspective, like this, like this, for example, if you get a full Okay, this is what happens. It tries to level it up and stuff, but kinds off, you know, distorted in a bad way. And this is what constant crop is sometimes what we when we try to correct the lens distortion and all this stuff, we end up with white areas around the image because there is no image. Ah, in that areas, you know, the image has been distorted, and it leaves blanks. Okay, so what we can do is to activate the constant crop option, and it will scale up the image to feel that white areas. All right, So the image will be we'll lose a lot of information around, All right, because if we deactivate this, you can see how we got a lot more details. More cars, All right. And if we activated okay, we kind of lose some cars, some cars. So if we go said full Okay, so we have other options, like automatic the vertical level So basically, this detects all the features Reason Tulum vertical, the vertical that that's only the bird ical features. And the level that that's the reason Total features right to align our image. And the automatic tries to make the best guess. Okay, we get it off. Okay. So, as I said, if you have some image like this and you go for the full or for the body call, it was pretty well, okay, but here, with the with the level, you can see that it doesn't do Ah, very great job, because we don't actually have a lot of reasons. All lines, right. And this one, for example, which is probably the only one. And it's with people on top of feed and stuff. It's not very clear, and it's not completely reasonable, all right. And this one's half perspective, so yeah, very co and full in this case, do a best job. Okay, we can turn it off, and ah, we can just, you know, as you can see with these images works kind of well, but with these other ones Ah, the cast. Some distortion or perspective from whatever. It doesn't do that. Ah, good job. you know. So what we can do in this situation is to use the manual options so we can go here to the manual and in the matter, we have here some options to adjust the image, which is critical. The distortion. Let us adjust distortion off the lens of the camera. Every camera. Ah, well, probably there is some kind of lens that has no distortion, but usually, ah, most of them have distortion. And ah, you can just corrected with this options, right? So this is to correct the lands distortion up and down. As you can see, we are left with some blanks right here. So we can just turn on here. The constant crop option to justice scale the image up as needed to adjust to our correction. Okay, so we will make sure. Let's turn that out. Let's resident Midge and let's ah, let's try to analyze it. You can see this image here Should Bieber tickle. It is not completely vertical, and it has some kind off cure. Right? Maybe you don't not, is it? But he has some kind of cure. Okay, so we can't just made the distortion. So it's kind of more straight Now this bow is not aligned vertically so we can just go here to rotate. And as you can see when I hover the mouse over these options ah, lighting displays agreed here so we can align stuff to it so I can just rotate the image toe a line that poll medically rights of this poll, which is the most closest to the camera vertical feature, is now aligned. And this way it doesn't feel like the photo is completely off so we can adjust the concert crop so we don't have these blank areas down there. And now we can also a does the vertical. All right, let's disable this that you can see better the effect. So this is the bird ical, and this is the Oriental perspective. It also allows us to correct photos in in cases where they are a little off in the perspective. All right, for assemble these when we can adjust it a little so that you can see if we go to cereal said This is not completely aligned with the floor and stuff. So we can go here and adjust it recently, So it kind of ah, it's more aligned with the floor, okay? And the vertical is the same. So we have it like a more aligned image. We go, we can scale it automatically instead of using constant crop. Okay, so this is what we would have at this point. And we can correct as well. The aspect radio, which is, uh, coolant zero. Another different option is that when sometimes there is a very bright ah source light or whatever or we have depending on the lands. Uh, also when we have, like, very angular lands is not difficult to get some kind of being adding. All right, so this option here help us took the bean yet. All right. So the vineyard is, like some kind of, um, degradation off the image in the in the borders so we can just turn it up to get ah brighter being yet. So if we have ah, darker part in the image on the surroundings, we can just turn it up to compensable compensate that Ah, brightness. And otherwise we can turn it off, and ah, I mean, turn it down and we get a darker result in case the being at his brighter. Also, it image is completely correct. We just can added to at some kind off, you know, more life to the image because I kind of fly these mini at effect here. And the meat point determines if we want, like, more Ah, soft or hard being yet, as you can see Okay, something like that is pretty cool. So as you can see, we have a lot of options to play with to correct the lens distortion. And here, as well we have, we can enable the profile corrections. And we can, you know, go here and select ah maker for you know, like if we made the picture wooden iPhone. Ah, Room already has some presets that allows us to go to Apple And here. So let the iPhone four, for example, or the Apple iPhone five. So light one will correct the with the correct settings for a knife on five right, which are already distorted. And we can even keep tweaking them down here. Right? Let's disabled that. And here in the color, let's go to another image at this one. Here is an image I just downloaded, which is it has a very, very wild color aberration. all right. Here is the removal chromatic aberration. And the chromatic aberration is, you know, uh, red, blue, and ah, and green colors. Usually a lot of times have a different wavelength, and depending on the camera and the depending on the medium, we are recording with, like, for example, in B h s. Um, in the old times, in the good old times, this happened a lot, all right. And today it it also happens when the lens the starts a lot the image in the borders, we get some color operation. This this is because the different wavelengths off the light doesn't reach at the same point in time. The you know, the sensor in the camera. So they are a little with a little offset. So you can see here like the blue, red and yellow channels are kind off, you know, little offset. So we can just increase here and trick play a little with this with this options here to kind of try to correct that offset right and play with this it's against He changes a lot. The result and the amount of this win so in this photo is very difficult because it's actually a pretty really wild chromatic aberration. All right, Anyway, we can play with it. And as you can see, it may look like we have a very bad thing going on. And we do. We do have, ah, very bad finger. We know, because this is meant to correct very little, uh, and saddle ah, color chromatic aberrations. But if now I turn this off, it's still worse. Okay, so lead room did a pretty good job of correcting the court chromatic aberration. You can see this is the original one. And this is with the chromatic aberration, a little corrected. So it's, um it's kind of ah, useful sometimes. And I don't have Ah, another image that can show better with a little chromatic aberration in the borders are stuff, but it kind of works pretty well. Okay, so So yeah, this is everything for the Lance Corrections. And as we're going into these effects, 23. Post Effects: Okay, We keep going down. And here we have the effects. That's Ah, close the east Grim. And here we have the effects. So the effects are basically have been yet And the grain. Okay, they are pretty simple, but they can be useful sometimes. I showed you before in the in the collar career in the lens correction how to create the Benet and stuff. But it's not the same kind of being yet because this one, you know, the other one applies to the image itself. So if you crop it distorted or whatever, it ah will distort as well they've been yet. All right. But if you created from here, this is like a post crop vignette in which will add it once after you crop the image. Okay, so we can start playing with it. He would cancel at different types off of being yet the effect is mostly similar, but well, this one is the by Default was pretty well, so if we increase the value, we create a white being yet, and if we decreases, we create a black bean. Yet now the meat point. Besides, where the middle off, the off the You know what? It starts where the radiant starts and ends. Okay, The roundness defines If we wanted to be like, Ah, something more round or kind off squared. You know, as you can see here, is, like kind of some kind of like the shape off the negatives. Okay, if we put it completely black is not that visible. But is there so it's mostly completely a squared. OK, And with these, we get it round and we can kind of change shape the feather. It's like the blue. Okay, we made it harder or softer. You can see better the effect of the roundness. So this is completely round. This is like elliptical. And this is like a square that is pretty cool. And now the highlights it Let's pass the highlights through the being yet. All right, so we can do something, ladies, and you can see that the highlights go past the bean yet, but we don't want that. Natalie, that's right. So as you can see this ihsaa pretty in steam way of doing a vignette. Now, let's just reset it because I'm going to show you how to add a green. This is very basic Hey, but let's focus the image here and increase the amount of grain. So if we put it at the top, let's put everything at the top. So basically, we increase the amount of grain, the size and the roughness often because you can see it's ah not looking very good. Okay, this is like more, you know, not that rough. This is very rough. This is kind of smooth noise. This is the size of it. We can increase it or decrease it to out more or less. As you can see from here, the image looks mostly the same. But from up close, it looks like with a lot of grain can increase the size a little bit. And ah, with this, we can now the crazy amount. Because this amount is, you know, we shouldn't be using the full amount of grain, Okay, But this kind of effects, it's usually for make something a little something very subtle. So we have some kind of grain. If we have a various mood image, it kind of doesn't look natural, right? It that's look like something like three d. All right, so if we had it just a little bit of grain. It kind of gives more life to the image. And, um and actually there is Ah, there is a story here. And is that in blue Ray? A lot of times, you can see that there is some kind of grain, actually, the blue ray. Ah, well, this is something I hurt, and I kind of believe it, but I don't know if this is completely true, but they had to add grain. Um, artificially, because they discovered that when they put the full quality off it without grain, it didn't look natural. Right? Because we are so used to see the images with a lot of grain and with bad quality, like from the DVDs and the BHS and stuff like this, that the blue ray looked so natural and that that it didn't look right. All right, so they had to add a little bit off grain to make it look more natural. So this is kind of the point of this. All right. Uh, you can see if we there's go here and the activated, It looks like, you know, a little very smooth and always all right. And if we activated it, kind of has a little more life, You know eso so, yeah. Also, it can help a lot when you, um when you are trying to emulate a retro effect in the photos, like a Super Eight film or something like that. So adding a little bit of grain can Ah, at a lot off effect to your photos. So, uh, this is basically the offensive you cannot with this. 24. Camera Calibration: camera calibration is the last option cure in the development. It and ah, Well, at least for now in the basic stop, because then we're going to see these tools. So camera calibration, basically, you know, it's different. Camera has different sensors and interprets caller in a very different way. Well, not very, but, you know, you know, there are subtle differences. All right, so here we have this. Ah, all right, here we have different options. So usually 2012 which is the latest one is is better. This is like some kind of database off colors or whatever. All right, standards. And here, basically, we have the adobe standard, and we have different types off corrections. All right, so so you can see, basically, depending on the ones you select the color correction. Ah, kind of changes a little bit. All right. The portrait, for example. You can see how it ah, you know, uses more red while the landscape tries to get more green. This what always kind of reddish anyway, because it was taken in the sunset. Okay. And in the standard, this is how you know basically the camera ihsaa taking the photo a double standard is already converted to some kind of a more standard way off interpreting the caller's so before going in and try to, you know, play with the basic corporation disposer and all that stuff. Ah, this is something that you could do. It's not mandatory, but this way you will see the image a city is taken from the camera or using a standard. All right, so you will make sure that you can correct it. Okay, You can just go ahead and start correcting it here from the camera itself, from the from the photo itself, not us. Ah, correction. After that, it's kind of I almost never used this because this actually, you know, I find that I have more control over the image in the normal options, but well, it is good to know that is there. And sometimes, depending on the camera, you use this only wars with broad format for by the way, all right, this is the raw photo. So if you're using a j peg or something that here you are going to see embedded, let's actually going to play to To to see it. Ah, let's go to old photographs And you have this one, for example. So here you can see that this is embedded because there's a J pack and there is no ah sensory information. All right, but here you actually have these two stuff, and this has been changed already. You can't reset it. And, ah, eso depending on the camera you use Probably. Your camera already has some presets that are here. All right, so maybe you can see some kind of stuff or ah, neek and stuff so you can use them and you will make sure that you're seeing the photo as the sensor of your camera captured it. All right, so this is basically, you know, the if you have ah, very specific camera and you want to make sure that you see the photo says that they were taken from the camera. You can just said the calibration. So lead your ah, your preset. And also, you can just, you know, probably go here and 10 them if you find that your camera probably captures more blue than other callers or whatever. And you don't like that you can just go and I don't know, tended in the image reduced the blue or whatever. And so when you apply that to all your photos, they will have these base to start from. All right, So later, when you will go here and sweets a temperature or whatever option you want to switch, it will start over the base that you set up in the camera calibration. So it's ah can be useful. I don't use it a lot of Asai said, but for some situations it can be indeed very useful. So yes, so you know it. There it is the option. 25. Crop Straighten: Let's see now how to use the crop tool because is one of the probably the most used tool apart from the color correction stuff in life room. Because a lot of times you have to, you know, crop your photo to pick the the area Did you like the most? And, um, you know, in other times, align the photo because we saw before how to do that from the lens distortion on the lens correction. Find that we can rotate the image, but here in the crop options, we have a lot Ah, whole new way of doing it very, very fast. And it works really nicely. So first we need to go here and just click here on crop overlay or we can just press are and we start the cropping process. So basically, when we start, we see that kind of courser, or we can just click here to do it. So we just quickens rack too. Speak the the area of the photo that we want to take. Okay. After that, we can just click in this corners to just drag around and read them. Read dimension. My crop area. Here we cancel. Let our Ah, you know our radio. For example, If we want to do a full HD image, we can pick this one, and it will just, ah automatically constrained to that aspect radio. So we don't don't want toe Ah, be worrying about you know that the aspirated one. The one feet later Ah, also from the middle. We can just rocket around the photo and from outside we can rotate the image again. See it already automatic we ah, just to the image so we don't have left with ah, you know, spaces around the photos and stuff. So that's pretty cool. And the other option. Let's say that we rotate the common like this all right, or the regional photo is kind of rotated. You know, the images rotated because we didn't use a tripod or whatever, and it's a little off, so we can just go ahead, click here on the angle, and these basically we have to draw a line, and this will be in a recent online. So this is like the or isn't we drag and drop to create this line, and when we release the button, light room will create. We'll make that line that we just ah traced. It will be make ah, reasonable in the image. So now we have it completely a reasonable All right. You can do it with control as well. If you press control, you can do that. It's again. See the line Did you do goes completely or reasonable. So if it's very small, it can still work. But it works better if it's if it's, ah, a big line because, you know, lebron has more information to to to just realign the photo. Um, another option is that, you know, if we don't have this like Kasten, right, the aspect radio. If we move it like that, we can just se custom what's happening here? Um, custom. Okay, I have to release it here. Okay. So here you can see let's drug again. Drug again. So we can just a just a sigh I set aside. Want now for applying this? We can just press here and don, we can press enter, but we can just click again here on the crop. Overly right. It is not the area that I want. Now let's say that I have this correct, um aspect radio and I want to keep it without going. Ah, here in this point also, keep in mind that you can rotate it from here. Okay? The image. So we can just quick here impress shift while dragon, and it will automatically keep the aspect radio. Alternatively, you can press all and it will scale from the center. Right. So let's say that you want to have in the center of this tower here. All right, so you center it and now you can make it bigger or whatever. The tower will always be in the center. So let's do this again. There it is. Now let's adjust our crop. And here we have some more options. This automatic means that when we are on top of these, when we are adjusting, we're going to see the the thirst, right? The rules here in the in the cropping This will show them Ah, always. And this you shoot, which will show them never. Of course. Usually I like to have them All right, then let's say that I don't like what I cropped, so I can just go here and reset crop again. Click here and we're done 26. Spot Removal: Let's see now how to use the spot removal tool So we click here or we can press cute to go in and out off the spot removal to. And we have these options, which may seem very, very simple, but it's kind of, you know, of course, in photo shop it's more advanced and more kiss Thomas. But here it's Ah, just for, you know, removing very little details. For example, Um, this is spot here or this part here. We're going to remove them. Um, we can navigate through the image here by pressing space and dragon. Okay, so let's remove this one, and I will explain to you several things during the way. So let's click here and you can see how it creates, like the source off the ah where it's going to take the area that is gonna copy here. So this is like the clone to in the in Photoshopped, actually, the hell too, because here you can see that we can change between clone and he'll. I will explain that later. So that is kind of right, and I can just go here and increase the size, okay? Or the quiz it until it covers the spot that I need. The feather will make it harder or suffer. And the A passage e will make it completely transparent and completely a pack. Let's just turn this s o It's ah only shown automatically when I'm into this window. So when I'm here, it doesn't show up. So as you as you as you can see, if I turn this off, this spot is here. But if I turn it on, it's gone because you're just here. You can see how if I turn the size down, we see the spot. But if I start turning it up, we cover it. Now with the feather, we make it harder and suffer. And with this you can see that if I put it that the minimum we can see the spot. And the more I increase it, the less we see that sport. Now let's see another way we can Instead of making just one spot, we can make a stroke. So left, click and drag to make a stroke. Rif It's like ah, no scar or something like that and it's somehow figures out. Um, some point in the image where it can take information from which is similar to that point. All right for covering that stroke. I'm gonna just put it very close to it, so you can see you can see how it changes. All right? The target and here is pretty cool. I think so. We can just increase the size or the creases size to make it work. And actually actually the size here. I think that's nothing. Because we have a stroke, or it should. It should actually do something. We select this, Okay? The capacity is doing something, as you can see, the feathering us well, but the size is somehow not very visible. The result? Well, maybe it's because it's ah, stroke. Okay, so once we are here, we already corrected this. Ah, little spots there. And now we have two different corrections, right? We could have even more. All right. For example, to correct this little spot here. And there we go. So now, if we don't want to go back and change something from this one, I can just click on it and we can go back and change the settings from it. The same with this one's right. We can quick and we can even set again. The sores go here, said the sores and stuff. So as you can see, it's pretty flexible. Now let's see the difference between cloning and healing cloning basically just copies from the source to the target. While healing ah, part from cloning is like an advanced cloning, it tries to make the source feet to the to the target. All right, so we made some kind of color correction because let's go here for a sample, all right? And let's put the source in the sky. So if I increase the size, Okay, now, this is completely blew. But if we put it here, it tries to make it fit. Ah, with surroundings off the of the image. So if we put it on clone, you can see how it's completely cloning this guy in blue. But he'll tries to make it fit. So this is basically the ah, you know, the difference between ah, cloning and healing. All right, now, if we press here, we can let this Ah, right. We have here a stroke or a point. We can select it right quick and the lead. We can reset all these spot removal like Quicken here on rested. All right, We can enable and disable it right here. You can see how in these three little dots we can see the difference. So this is the spot removal toe. Now for applying these changes, we can quicken Don, but we can desk click here when we are into the tool. So we click it or place Q, and we go back to image itself, and now it's gleaned. 27. Red Eye Correction: boom. This is very scary, right? All right. This used to happens a lot when we use the flashing our photos because the light enters into the routine and and reflects the red light inside the eye. And it creates this kind of them and like, eyes. OK, so there is a tool in light room that allows us to very quickly correct this stuff. Now, give me mind this example here is very extreme, right, Because we have red eyes in a very, very close shot. Right? So they are very very, um, you know, big. But if we have a normal photo and the person this ah, you know, not very close to the camera and stuff, it will work perfectly. Right? So in this case, it can have some little problems, but, um, anyway, it will do a good job. So for using this, I just go here. So let the red eye correction and I have to drug from the center of the eye here it says from central D, I or click to use the core insides. All right, so now if we just click here is not enough. We need Teoh. Tell library information about the whole I so it can compare the difference between colors . So we click from the center and let the whole I with drug right to let the whole I and now light room is just ah, correcting it. Now let's go to the other I. And now we have the size already set. We can just click it and as you can see it already, correct it. Now we have some ah, you know, deliciously there we can even correct them more so we can just click on the on each eye. We can increase the pupil side size and we can darken or writing it so we can document and increase or decrease the size of the pupil. Do something like that unless, with same with this one, then we dio increase little. Desai's not a little more and we are done. We can quicken rested if we don't like it. So here you can see the difference again. See very dramatic difference. A rise of it's done. And now if we go to the original photo, you can see how it looks like it's ah much better than the original, right? So this is why ah, red eye correction is here 28. Graduated Radial Filters: we have these two options here. Okay, This heart for making, like, Grady int the filters. Let's see, the 1st 1 which is like a, you know, a normal radiant. And the 2nd 1 is a radio radiant. So let's ah, quicken here. And if we click and drag on the image as you can see, we create some kind off, uh, radiant. All right, Right now we're not seeing any effect because we have this. Ah, zero completely. But we can go ahead and start increasing the temperature or the teen thing. And as you can see, this part of the image starts to change, and we Onley change with this. No more contras. We only change one part of the images. You can see there is like, some Grady int. Okay, so we can move the Grady int by ah, clicking and dragging on this little dot By clicking and dragging here, we can rotate it right to make sure it for some believe we only wanted to to apply it to the sky, for example. And by clicking and dragging here, we can make it bigger and smaller. All right, we can if we create outside it and Glicken drag again, we can create a new one, a new one, that by default we'll keep the standings from the previous one. Now, here we can exchange them. And if we click here on new, we can create a new one with the default settings, not the settings off the previews fielder. Okay, And as you can see by clicking and dragging on them, alright allows us to so let them. But if we have ah, some of them, like over post like this is not simple. Just lead them OK? Because when we have the selected here, instead of letting the other one, we will have this option to rotate. So we have to be very careful to see how we organize them so we can select all of them Now . The other option. Ihsaa Well, let's see how did lead this once? So if we selected, we can right click it, we can duplicate it or we can delete it. The elite or, if we selected, became, for example, reset. The graduated fielder's okay, and the when we said we turn the scene to Syria is like if we press this bottom here because it kind of rue acid. Everything. It deletes all the radiance that we added. Now I see the radio one because the rate of one is exactly the same. Many of these radio, of course, So we can increase the temperature for a sample. And the thing with the radio is that by default, it effects the ah, like, inverted. All right. Not inside the shape, but outside it so we can invert it by. Oh, sorry. Going down here, we can't Imbert it here, and you can see that now. Ah, the affected part is inside the circle. Okay, We can't change the circle at this. And like this. Yes, Well, something like that. And with this option weekend, invert the mosque, as you can see, and we can't tweak stuff inside this circle. Now with this other option, with the feathering we can select if we wanted to be, you know, like, very blurred or very hard, Completely heart, as you can see. Let's put it something that Dad and Lourdes a lot. So as you can see, we have ah, kind off very D simulated. Ah, filter here. But it kind of gives more life to demons. So these two options are great because they allow us to color correct specific parts of the image. All right, so we can play. Ah, lot farther than just ah, selecting in. I mean, just changing the color and and stuff from the full image and once. Okay, so this ah, is a pretty nice option. 29. Brush Filters: the last two we have in this menu is this one which is the address mint brush this Ah, tool that I like a lot because it allows us to paint specific corrections. Let's see how it works. We click on it and we can just go ahead. And as you can see, we have some kind of brush, so I can just click and drug and we created a stroke. Now we don't see anything, But if we activate this option here, we can see the mosque it created. All right, So this area here that we painted ah, we can make this color correction for it and it will affect only that area. Let's try it so it can increase the temperature or the crease it or the crease. The exposure, for example, or, ah, the crease It contrast, You know, everything we want to do with the color correction there in that area. Ihsaa. It's possible. So let's make it really exaggerated so you can see what I'm gonna do now. So basically, I can go here and he regains lead the brush we want to use. So here we have the size. As you can see, So if we keep painting again, see that? Now the brush size is different. The feather off the brush, which is to make it softer or harder. And the flow off it, Which is the density, right? Like the opacity? Uh huh. If weekly caught a mosque while autumn ask, I'm gonna show you do to you later, because that's a pretty cool feature. And ah, the density is so also effects something like the opacity. Okay. All right. So with this options now we can go to the B and M B. We can have a different brush, OK, in case we didn't wanna have to different brushes for different cases we can save up to, Ah, two different the brad sizes in whatever. And then we have the rays option, which is another brush with this brush. If we click and drag, as you can see, we can the lead part off off a stroke if we feel that we went too far with it. Okay, But this is just for adjusting, because if we want to lead the full stroke, we just need to want to go to the point in which we started, right click on it and deleted. That's right. Okay, Now let's see how to create different strokes. Actually, let's make it smaller. All right, so we create this. Ah, If we keep the amounts over this, it shows us the overlay. Right there. You see it in red. So here we have our exposure and the contrast. It's just Ah, exaggerate a little this area. All right, So we have this one, and ah, we can do. I didn't want to open that. If we want to create a new one, you can see that. Eat. It's ah from the same strokes. All right. So what we can do to create a new one is to go here and instead of fat it desk week on new . And here we can start suggesting it. So when we at the stroke, it already has some correction on it. And you can see how it already added a new one. And it's already working. Now let's Ah, that's made this more than Stephen Moore flow. It was completely black. That's it. So now, as you can see, we have two different Ah, two different strokes and pretending one or the other we can just click on it. And the adjustments we do effect on Lee. Those strokes in the image stroke, right? Let's call them stroke. So it's pretty pretty nice. Now I'm gonna show you what the auto mask option is because let's say I for something want Teoh kind of dark in this Ah, this road here so I can just go ahead and here in the in the brush options just enable autumn ask what demise will do? Is that where we paint? It will kind of the debt the area where we are painting and, ah, where there is ah high difference with the colors around surrounding it, it won't paint. All right, so if you can see here, let's make it more exaggerated so you can see it better, right? Can you see how it ah tries to respect the the road and not paint over the leaves and grass ? So that is the point of this of this option auto mask. And now we can, as you can see, darken or brighten our Ah, make it brighter. Alright, Sadler. The road only and conscious. Maybe crazy highlights. So there we go. We can raise it this or we can just see how it looks like without this option, you can see how the road itself has bean darkened. So as you can see, a pretty nice tool for correcting colors selectively. So if we have ah, faced off someone that we want to brighten up or something like that, or let's say, for example, this is over its post. Okay, So let's go with this brush and we can just create a new one because the settings will be different than for the for the road. We go through this area with the auto mask options, you can see how it tries to you. Um, it tries to, you know, mask the trees. Only that we, ah, painted on that we have it. So now we can change the exposure for that area like that. And now here we have something weird. Okay, so we can just go with the eraser, make it more, make it smoother. There we go. And he campaigned to arrange that area and make this here not so dark. Maybe here. Yes. And this way we have Ah, nice color correction and selective color correction. And we can just, you know, if we don't like it or whatever. Just the go ahead and right click the lead. And if we reset Russian the same as well with the radiance and ah ah, the radio filters and stuff. It will just reset everything. And when we're done, just quicken done, and that's right. 30. Export: Okay, so now we have our photos corrected and everything. So remember that, um, the corrections are only leave in two life room. All right, if you go to the original photos, they keep being original, and even from lad room, you can still reset them to go to the original status. So the changes in the photos are only taking an account here in light room. So if you want to support them ah, we're going to learn how to do it in this video. So you so let the few photos, all right. Like this once and, uh, this to ones, for example. Maybe this one here and okay, that's Ah, that's enough. That's enough. We're showing you. So we go here to file and human file. You can export all right, or export with the present because you can save press. It's for sporting. All right. But you can just also click here in export, and you will also 3% with the, um with the window for it's morning with the options for a sport. So let's see how the sport first we need to tell light from board to, um, send This image is I'm gonna use the desktop, all right? And I'm gonna create here another folder which will be called photos. OK, so I have it. Ah, my hand when I just ah want to show you the result. All right, So if the there are the assistant files already are there, all right? Because sometimes we may probably want to change some more things in life room and then export again, and they will have the same name. So here. Ah, we will. Selective. We want 11 to us. What to do if the there is already a file with same name there or if we just, ah, changed the new name for the file or override or skip? Okay, so that's that's right. Now we have here rename, all right. And this ihsaa Pretty interesting because we can create our own renaming options. Okay, I'm gonna go through it right now. So here we have the Jay Pek, the type of father we want to export. I'm gonna use the Jay Peak, right? The color space here is something really interesting as well. If we have a very big photos because this will make the G p j bad quality and everything adjust so every day pack doesn't go farther than Ah, 500 kilobytes. All right, I've got a deactivated because I want to have the control here and have, ah, pretty nice images. Okay, Here we can resize it. So all of them feed some kind of resolution or, you know, dimensions. Whatever. Okay, so, megapixels, I don't want to resize them. You can sharpen them for spleen, whatever. Include the metadata and ah, everything including the camera data and everything. Or only the copyright. And here we can create watermarks. Now, let's see how to create watermarks. So I already have this one. But let's actually put another one for a sample. Um, skill fit. So if we put here skill fit, um, or we can't even load a day. Paige or PMD file here. We can't let the type of photo You can see a preview of how it lives. Like we can make it a bigger or we can make it. Ah, you know, smaller. Whatever. We can move it around. I guess. No again. This is the shadow can activate a dark dft raid the shadow. And, um, I'm missing some options here. OK? Do you opacity off the stuff. This feat, Phil Proportional. Okay, here is the they offset. And the younger if we want to put it in another place off the off them. And so let's put it something late there and let's actually turn it down a little. Make it smaller. There we go. Soon I can save it. All right. And this preset will be, for example, skillful So I can save several ones. And Ah, here you have this one for a client I already saved before. And here you can save the saw, The one with skill fit. Okay, So, ah, if I'm gonna export another day, I can just go here. So let the skill fit and the skill food water mark that I already set up will be applied to the image. Here's the post processing If we want to. Ah, process the images before Ah, saving them with Photoshopped, for example. Or other application, Like gimp. Um, right now it's only going to show them in the explorer. And let's see now the option for renaming because this ihsaa something that I like. So we can we have this little options here? We can just edit it, and we have gasam way off, you know, exporting the stuff. But so I'm going to show you how the how this worst have this customs. Okay, Kasten name, whatever. When I got to do is to out names, for example. Skill feed. Pissed. And now I want to add, for example Ah, the file name. Let's make that insert the file name. Underscore, for example, let's let here the sequence in Syria one is the form it off sequence. Okay, so each one of the images will be called with skill fit. Test the original file name, and here it will have the sequence. Okay. Also, we can insert the date with, um, for example, the They, uh uh They okay off. Oh, sorry. The month month here and now the gear. So you can see we cannot the information that we want And once we have it, it has been already added, or we can just click insert two at it again. And finally, I want to add, let's say the that the term we have all this information, so let's ah, the dimensions only so on their score. And we cannot the name mentions and we can't have a cast. Um, test. Ah, after all this Whatever. Ah, well, this is a really, really big name, but let's say that we we have it. So here we have an example of how it we look like it will look like, um skill feed. Ah, stupid deaths underscore the final name. Um, which is actually not very useful. So I'm gonna delete it. So it's going to take only the date right off the photo. And it's now I mentioned and ah, this Ah, cereal one is the sequence. So I prefer this sequence number to be at the end, so congest underscore and seek witness. Insert the sequence. There we go. So now we will have the serial one at the end. So let's ah, just go ahead and quick. Done. And the folder has been done. Whatever. And turn. I think it's everything Ihsaa is there. We can save presses here, right? They say that this press it tight. I'm gonna call it skill feed sport inside the folder, create. So now the next time I want to a sport with this specific format, this specific watermark and everything I set up here in the same folder and everything. I can just quickened here on this, um, on this. Ah, you know this Press it and it will set up everything for me so I can click Sport. Let's see what happens. Here's this morning. You can see the Progress bar and I can open the folder already. It already has been done. So here's you can see, we have already the photos corrected. And the names much what I told the lead room to create. Okay, so here I have my photos. And so yet, uh, here it iss, for example. And you can see how it has my watermark, Asai set it up. So this is basically is basically had to sport with light room. And now we already have our corrected photos in the hard drive, because otherwise it's not there, not there. Okay. So ah, you know, they are Onley in light room, so you need to explore them before you can show them or upload them to the internet or whatever. So Ah, this is, uh, this is it 31. Adding GPS Coordinates and Others: Okay, so we have gone around a lot of things on the library and Debelo panels because they are the most used in library. But we have several more options here that for some people may be really useful. I'm going to only be very briefly go through them. All right. Map is very interesting because it allows us to catalogue photos depending on their GPS locations. Right. So if we have GPS locations into our photos is stored in the metadata or some direction, it's gonna ah, put it here in, Ah, Google maps. Now, here we have this leg and that Ah, shows us. You know what? It's Ah, what is symbol is about, So I'm gonna close it and let's see how to out photos to places. So this Ah, these photos here, this one, for example. I took it around around this area. Okay, we can navigate by left clicking and stuff. So I I was in the in this area, so I can just Ah, right, click. All right, so let the photo directly here at GPS coordinates to selected photos. As you can see now, I have here the coordinates anymore. If I hover the mouse over it. I can see the photos that are that were taken in this location, which is pretty nice. Now, this other one, if we want to add it here because it was very close to it, I can just drag it and drop it on top of the other. And now I have two photos there, and you can see that if I hope for it, I can just navigate through them here. Now, let's say that this one's, um, other photos, for example, this Ah, these three ones here were taken very far from here. Another CD. Let's Ah, look for it. It may take some time for Google maps to that because they were in a completely different city. But yeah, this uses Google mop blue mops and, um okay, so they were taking here in Toledo, so I can just drag them. And there we go. Now we have three photos there. This one was also down into leather And these three ones, for example, where don in Melinte So that we can have them. Okay, so now if we go to the map, you can see how very quickly Ah, we can see which photos we took in its place. So if we want to go to the photos we took in a very particular place in the world, you can just go here. If we have added this information and so let them. So it's Ah, very useful overall for people who travels a lot. Okay, Because, ah, you will end up with a lot of, uh, different messages around here that you have photos there, as you can see when you are Ah, these GPS information to a photo Here you have this little ah symbol that represents that This photo has GPS coordinates. So, as you can see, pretty interesting. And this one was done into leather as well. So I cannot it right here now I have five photos there. This one was done there as well. Okay. And ah, yes. So it's ah, pretty nice. Also, another thing is that resemble I can go here and ah, this other one was took in a little different prey place. It was gone around here. And this is just to show you how this works, because now, um, I can just go back as you can see now they are going to be pretty close. So now, instead of having to and more here now, I have three in that close area because it's very close. And if I go farther, you see that I have 12 photos in Spain instead off different cities into Spain. All right, because from here, I don't see the city's right. And there would be a lot off little messages around here, so I can just ask them. And if I want to go into them just, ah, again, just assuming to see them separately. All right, so this Ah, pretty pretty nice to organize your photos by places. Now, other options is the book. Let's go to the book. And this is you can see allows you to create some kind of ah, off a book from the, um from the photos you have. Okay, you can rearrange them. Okay, Just in there. And this is for ah, you know, the sumi in as well. We can just let here how we want these photos to be. And ah, this is useful overall for people who want who works in weddings and stuff like this. Because this is for printing the book, right? preening all the photos, like in an abu manner. And ah, this Ah, this has this, um, you know this exclamation mark Because this photo has not enough resolution for being printed at this size. And now here it tells us the amount of pages and how it would coast to send it through the default, Um, to default. Ah, company that Prince days when you exported from light room. All right, you can print it on your own, of course, but this is it can quiz the thumbnails and we can rearrange photos it again. Steve, week leak in the number can have pages. We can remove pages. Well, you can have an idea. All right. I will. Ah. Let you investigate about it. Because I don't want to go very far in this. Ah, in this options. Because to be honest, I don't use them a lot. I mostly used the library and the develop tools, right, Because I'm not working with albums and stuff like this, so I kind off don't know a lot of this options, right? Ah, I know that you can't create like, ah, you know, um, contact books. Okay. Like for having all the photos into a couple of pages, so Ah, the client can choose photos and stuff. I can go to the sly, showed this light show, and we can create Ah, slideshow a Z. The name heaven says Okay, here we have different the options to to just use the photos and stuff we can played. And this will save a power point off our photos. Okay? And we can changed a lot of stuff, actually, but, um, to be honest again, I don't use to create slide shows like this. I create videos sometimes, but I use some editing software for it. But for some people, this may be useful. So Ah, you know, if you now know, this option is here, so you may need to investigate a little more onto it. Now, the print option. This is for preparing photos for printing, right? And you can see this is my default printer and the type of the paper and stuff, so Ah, we can just ah, so let the flat photos, All right. I think the same can be done for the for the book. Somehow. Like, you know, we can Ah, we can't let somehow if we want to use once in and save book. Yes, We can select which kind off photos we want to pick. Because for sure, we may be able to just created book from Onley. Flat photos for assemble. All right, anyway, eso the prion team. Yep, he is flat photos. You can see it now. We are in the flat photos of what is that? We flagged here and ah, here. We can just have some options, all right, To adjust it for the print. And here we can go through our photos. Right. So these has been the flat ones. There we go. And then we have the web. Now this ihsaa While I didn't, he used it before. Ah, look, something kind of interesting because it allows you to create an html five gallery of your photos, which would be interesting for a sample if you want to upload them to a website. Okay. You want to would love into a website for your client or something, and you can just create the html five gold here and exported and ah, uploaded to your to your website. Okay? Because here you can see a preview off how it would look like So you can go to the next photo. That's photo the index. And this would be an H teammate to a team. I'll gallery. Now. The thing here is that Ah, there are different. Um, them lates did you can use. Okay, so if you click him one, you can see different options for it. And, um, you know, we can change settings here. Like the site. It'll, for example, you can, Ah, but your name or your website named there. Right. A collection. Toodle. So you can put the name off your client, okay. And, ah, contact. Name, whatever your phone. And here you can go through your photos. As you can see is like a preview in your website. It would look something like this, and you can probably even change some settings. Yeah, you have colors here. Okay. So you can change the colors off stuff to adjust it to your likings. And, um let's see what does this. Okay, so I guess here you can change that to the sites of the images. It's way too small. The fam nails, if you want to see more families in the same place, so as you can see something. Ah, that kept me interesting. As I said for ah, for some people. Ah, but mainly aside said, before we would do the we would use the library and the Debelo tools, maybe the mop tool, because the map to is actually pretty cool. Overall, if you travel a lot and take photos in different places and want to just have them situating them up, it's pretty cool. But ah, mainly the library for navigating stuff and the devil of four color correction. It, uh so this substance are cool as well, but ah, for some more specific people. But light room overall, I think, is used by people who work in the wedding industry and stuff like that. So the slide show and the book Ah, and the print, of course, would be probably useful for them as well. So I'm sorry to not go more in depth into it, but to be honest, I don't use it a lot, so I'm not sure how to use it. And I I want to give you more information about them because, uh, I I actually don't know it. All right, So I hope you learned ah, love from the library and develop options. And ah, you can now organize and double of your photos
