1. Class Introduction and Overview: Hello. My name is George. And in this photography class, I'm gonna teach you everything you need to know about light room, CC light room. It's such a powerful problem. He has to offer so many options to bring your images toe another level. And if you never use light room, don't be scared because this class is designed exactly, and only four total beginners. If you ever open light room once or twice or you'll never open it. This class is just for you because I go through every single process in light room, starting from importing your images to light room, creating your own libraries, selecting your images going through the cooling process and the selection of the images you want to keep or you wanna trash away. Then moved to the develop mold while its developer slider with all options and the engine off life from showing you each and one slider what they can do and what power they have to turn your image toe absolutely mustard face. Then we're gonna talk about presets, how to use presets, how to create your own presets, how to export presets. And finally, I'm gonna show you how to create your export setting and how to export your final edit image. So as you can see, it's a lot to take. It's a lot to learn, but don't be scared. We're gonna go through each and one section, explain nicely so you can stop at any time. Do it will be a practice. Take a break and just keep rolling with a class later on about the project. With this class, it's gonna be very simple. I'm going to keep it simple. We'll upload a part of my library, and I will share the link with you where you can download all these images in the row for month directly from the camera. So know anything done whatsoever on them? I wanted to take them or pick few images of them and just give your touch on them. Give your edit. Show me what you think could be improved in them. Show me the way How you think this limit should be looking as a final result. My name is George. I'm photographer, literature and graphic designer, and as you can see, we have lots to go through. So without feather with you, let's start with the first lesson and let me introduce you to the powerful software from Adobe. A light from C. C. 2. Introduction to Lightroom Classic CC: welcome to the actual class now, and let's start with a quick overview off light room. I want to give you just a quick overview, because if some move you opening light room for the first time, I wanted to get the lead to be familiar with the software. And what is the models and the sliders and everything around the interface of the software ? Okay, here it's my light room. And as you can see, I have lots of pictures. But if you never import any image to your light room is basically is gonna be the same. But you won't have the fumes trip on the bottom and all this time, nails. But don't worry, this is just to show you a very quick overview. And then we're gonna move to the next lesson when we're going to start importing images and building your couple books in your library. So the so on the top, you have your more useful models in a light room. The 1st 1 it's library second, develop and follow up book, slideshow, print and web. The most useful. It will be the library and develop. This is the two models which we're gonna concentrate during this class. I will touch on the rest of the models in the end of the class, but they won't be the priority of this class. The priority of this class is toe teach you how to import, helped organize your libraries, helped cooling your images and then teaching you how to edit your images and help us develop moat with all the options Have toe offer for you. So the library on the left side You have your navigator. When you can see your image and you can navigate through the mission, choose certain parts of the image to see it zoom in or zoom out then is the catalogues When you were gonna create later on a couple locks and show helped import your Let me just cut the locks. Your folders. This is where light room Have all the folders available on your computer, such as your local car drive, external hard drive, for example. If I open my Macintosh HD, you can see all the pictures which it's on this hard life, then the collections. This is something which we're gonna talk later on about how to create your own collections from each one of your photo shoot so you can easily find and organize your images and the publishing services. It's give you the option to publish your images directly to social network. Someone like galleries, Adobe stock If you decide to sell your images and some of the website, which it's photography website, to share your images directly on the right side, it's your hissed a gram your quick developed, which we want that you told to be honest, the quick developed I don't use it, but you may find a useful in the future. The key wording. This is very important because this is where you can put keywords for your images, and this will help you in the future. When you end up with thousands of images to find very quick, any of them, it's unique, and I will show you this. A swell. The key word least, it's what it's safe, the key word to use. So for a quick access metadata, this is probably the most useful here because it's giving you the whole setting from the camera, all the set up of your camera on each image, and you have options toe title captions or copyrights. Creative name and see everything about single image. On the bottom is the fumes. Strip the filmstrip. It's extremely useful because when you first import images to the library, they will come like this in the small time names, which you have no options to zoom in and out from the slider down here. But obviously, it's not the ideal situation when you want to see the image in a full screen and you want to decide if that image is good enough to keep it. Or it's the image which supposed to reject it and supposed to go in your bill. So this is when the fumes three becomes so. If I click twice on this image, for example, I can see it nicely big enough for me toe. Decide if I want to keep it or I wanna trash this image. But then on the filmstrip, I have everything in this couple lock and this folder so I can just grow with my arrows left and right, and just decide what I want to do with images. Have a quick overview and I start with cooling process. So this is your library interface. Let's move to the develop. The develop. It's pretty much the same, except a few of the things he's gonna change. Obviously, on the left side, you still have your navigator because you need it all the time. Then you have presets underneath. This is where you use your presets coming with a light room. Or you may purchase some presets or you even can create your own presets. So we're gonna touch on this and we're gonna go through everything, help to create safe import and use this presets, snapshots and history. This is two tops, which I'm gonna talk to you later on. And they're not very important in your workflow and collections again. You have collections in library and they still in the development. This is why I mentioned earlier collection. It's really good to be organized, all your shops and all your sets. This way, you can scroll through them very quick in the development or library moat and find the same image so you don't need to go, let's say from development, go to back to library and find the folder and then try toe edit. This image when it's in collection is the easiest way to get quick access on the right side under the hissed a gram. You have your main tools and these two seats for fine retouching and adjustments in light room, and it's very powerful. We'll talk about it and we'll go through each and one of the options and to seeing, citing the two but and under two straight away. It's your sliders thesis lighters. It's where everything happening. When comes toe. Anything images, your sharpness, your exposure tone, curves, colors everything. So this is it. Basically, we have so many small things and options here underneath in the two bars, which I want to show you when times come because they're really useful options here and you can see in the later stage when we start cooling, the magistrate ing color called them, and we want to compare images between before and after, and obviously find certain images select just certain images from certain writing. All this happening here in these two bars underneath, but we'll talk this in every lesson. When it's come to the point, I will go through and explain everything to you and this is it. You have a very quick overview. Like I say, it's just a quick overview it's nothing to worry about. You don't need to really try to push yourself to remember everything, because in all the lessons coming through the class, we're going to go through each model and each slider and every option. So you're gonna have a better understanding of which part of the interface of the light room this is just to give you a quick idea where you're walking through. That's it. Don't worry about it at all. So let's start whether you think let's start importing images, create catalogs and collections and go through the cooling process of your images. I'll see you in the next lesson. 3. Importing, Catalogs, Collections & Backup: So after the quick overview, it's time now to start with real things. And let's start with important your images. I've select few images from my library, which you're going to receive our put link, and you obviously can download these images and practice with them but important images. It's quite easy, obviously, but I won't touch on how to create your collection, how to create your cut the locks and back up your images and to show the different ways of importing images and the different options. Of course, coming quit important images. So it's quite a lot of information here. So I made break the lesson in two parts and to make it easier for you to follow. So let's start without losing any time and start importing the images. Okay, I'm in my life. Rumors. You can see all my images. It's here. This is my catalogue folders and collections. What's happened here now is because I have all my images in one place. I want to take them away, and we just make a brand new cut. A look for purpose of this class by the fault. Let me just show you by the fault light room. It's important everything in one catalogue, which it's in your pictures folder on your computer. And as far you don't say to light room to create new catalogue the light room always gonna import the pictures in your main light from catalog, which is located in your picture. Father. No, but as idea. But if you end up with thousands of pictures, your cut, the look is gonna get huge. Then you're gonna have the travel finding images, and it's gonna get really messy. So what? I suggest it's to create new catalogues for every one of your import. If it's a small shooting session or something, you can still keep it in the same light from capital over the 4th 1 but still try to create different catalogs for every new important you're doing. Because it's not only the catalog here, you can make your backups of light room. It's well in the same location, and all other information which light from collect was helpers, previews, metadata and everything of the images. It's coming in the same folder, remember, Light room doesn't import, doesn't hold any of the images toe in actual software. He's giving it option, too important to a certain destination which you choose, but it doesn't actually hold the images. Insight is just collect the data from the camera from the images and is giving you nice and quick preview of everything and old images. You can work home without actually keeping them. Inciting the software. There will be a location, which is the side, and this is when the catalogue can the capital look actually safe? All the information about the images, all the location, every edit you do every amendment of the images, every adjustment. The catalogue will save it insight for you. So let's create new capital look. And when creating the new cattle look, I want to talk about a swell about backups very quick, and then we move to collections and we wrapped up the whole process to create new catalog is very simple. You go in file, click on file, and there on the top, it says new cattle look. So where you press on your catalogue light room, we'll open as you can see by the fault. It's in the pictures and you ask you, do you want to create there? But we don't want that and this is when it's coming. The point. I want to talk to you about backups. A very quick If you're serious about your photography new using like room and you want to start more and more using and get to the business. I will suggest to make a little investment right away. Or soon you can. And by yourself. External hard drive for your light room on Lee. So dedicated hard drive for light room. Excuse me. And also by another hard drive, which is gonna be dedicated Onley toe backups. Every photographer knows back up the backup. Always as a rule, you need to back up your existing backup. Okay, That's why you need to external hard drives. One is gonna keep all your backups from what you do with light room. And one is going to keep the backups of all these backups and you touch this card life only in case of emergency. Okay, so let's create first new couple. Look, I'm gonna call it Light Room Classic CC Clough, Just for the purpose of this class in these tutorials and everything, just so we know we're on the same page and I want to create this catalog in my external hard drive, not on my car drive from the computer, my external hard drive. I do back up everything on my external car life. And then I sent my back up to a drop box because I use Dropbox for other things and I have a big stories there. But as I can say, you can do that or you can have two hard drives. So if I go to my external hard drive, I will go in the skew share project in this project Light Room C. C. I will go to my external hard drive, and I'm going to create a new folder, which is gonna call roll files. We'll create that because I want to put the files which are going to send to you so you can practice with them. And this is where we go important, so I will create a and light room is going to say closing down. This is because it's needs to create a new catalogue and relaunch the light room again. And now you have clear interface with nothing inside. Brand new cut a lock for the new images, which we go on import. So again, I want to mention maybe mention a few more times during the class. Don't forget is very important to have backups of your backup. So at least start with 1/3 drive and keep all your images on external car drive, not on your computer. It's very good to be organized, and I will tell you why. Because when you create your capital, Okun external hard drive in a certain destination, then you can import the images in the same destination, and then you can do. The backup of this image is in the same destination. So let's say if you shoot a wedding John and you wedding to say you get your folder Jumanji Wedding, you create a couple look with the same name, back up collection and everything. It's nice and organized for you. So before we import the images, I will create a collection by the fault, like have the smart collection, which you can drop images of different places and just keep it a smart collection. But what we want here it's to create our old collection. Okay, so just click on the plus button here and create collections set. Why you creating collections said. Because let's say you shooting Whiting's Excuse me. You can create collection, which it's called Weddings 2018 or Weddings 2019 and then inciting this collection. You can put all the different weddings which you shoot, or let's say you should product photography, make collection a product photography and then inside make the different products as a soup collection. In this collection set everything. It's about being organized. So I will create collections sent just to show it for the purpose of this class. Not because we're gonna create so many super collection inside, but just so you know, so create quick collection. We're gonna call it Light Room Classic CC Plus, There you go. We have the collection and we're ready to import. Now you can import from different places. You can import from your memory card from your SD card from your camera directly with USB or from memory stick. Or maybe you have pictures already on your computer and you want to move them somewhere. There's lots of options here. If you press import, it will open the dialogue, and you give you the all available options and available destinations from where you can import images As you can see, I have my iPod. My ears digital is doing my computer because I did some shooting. Have a cocktails, so I need to import them. Then you have your internal hard drive and your external hard rife and obviously again memory card. Here is the card. Now I know my images for this class. It's on the desktop. I've selected father on the desktop, which I wanted to put few images for you. So I'm just gonna go to users. I'm gonna go my user, that stop and I'm gonna find a folder folder. It's cold or old files. Yeah. So this is the role files. What I want to do with this image is now it's to move them to the external hard drive where I create the father role files. I don't want to keep them on my desktop. Okay. Here on the top, you have the options. When you come to import, you have different options. Help import your images. The 1st 1 it's copy us DMG that the n G is a digital negative. It's ah open useless row image for months written by adobe. And if you want to use it It's fantastic. I'll say, I'll convert most of my images DMG and use them, but you don't have to do it. If you decide it will copy them, convert them important and everything for you. The 2nd 1 it's copy. Obviously, it's copy images from a location to another location, and after the catalogue, move again. It's more photos to a new location from the old location and just out to your couple and out. There's just anything photos to the catalogue without moving them. So, for example, you have a folder on your computer, you shoot some product photography, and then next day you decide you want toe, take a few more shots from different angles or with different sectors. You did. You put your the car to the computer. You just copy the role files to the same location and then you want toe. Obviously, add them to the light room or you copy them somewhere. All you do is just up to the same folder when it's your previous they shooting. So you keep everything together in the same place. However, most of the time, maybe 99% of the time you go news copy or move. So at this point, at the moment I have my images on the desktop, the images which you can use for practice. And I don't want them on the desktop. So I don't want to copy them. I want, actually move them from the desktop to the new location, which I create in my external hard drive. To do that is just go here on the top right corner and when you see or ah, hard drive and you just click on it and is going to give you a few options. What to do what we want. We want to go in the other destination. This is gonna open the window and the moment eating pictures. As you can see my role files. It's here on the desktop. I don't want them here. I want them to go on my external hard drive and they go in the Role files folder, which I create and where we saved our couple Look, so we don't go in actual capital looking site. We just import in the same folder. So we choose this and this is when they gonna be moved, then Butte preview. I use Bill's preview because light room is building preview. And if you have ah, massive amount of images, let's say you should 3 400 images every time. When you look through the images through the cooling process, the light room it's gonna take time to low the whole information of the image and to display it clear for you. This is when the preview slow down the program. If you make built preview in the beginning, it may take a little be longer to import images. But then, when it's come to the cooling process, then you want to go through the images. You won't waste time every time waiting for the image to build the preview, the virtual preview and show you the image in the best possible way. So I always keep my preview on. Want one, then here you have option. Make a second copy, too. This is where I talk about backups. Now you don't have to use that, but if you have already created a backup of the backup card rife, you can use it and you can send the images there. And on the later states, you can copy or cut a look and everything else I don't use it because I like to finish with my images. And when I'm done, I just go to my car drive, get this folder with everything inside, catalogues everything. And just copy my backup of the backup Hard drive and final step here on the top one asked to collection. So you remember, We create a collection light room, classic CC class. So this is where we're gonna put a new sub collection and is going to call it, but old files this why? I know I have the capital look, but all files, I have the images in the same place and I have them already put in collection so I can have quick access to them. Okay. Five remaining quantities that are applied during import never touch. You can just give to the light from certain metadata if you have already saved one, or you can give develop setting to apply some presets before you even start anything. I won't do that. All I want to do here, it's put keywords. The key words. It's very simple and is very powerful doing like room. If you do a lot of images, you're gonna end up struggling to find them in some point. And this is when the keywords helping. So what we did here, I wanna put, uh, parole files as a key word. And I want to put plus images de sway if I want to search for them later on on my cut, the locks and my collections, I'll find them very quick because they already gonna have the keywords which I assign toe all of the images. Okay. Or in the later states, you can come back and you can change the keywords for certain image. Like for example, I have this car here. I can change the key word just for this and put car or retro car. So this is giving even more specific search destination. This is the last things. What we want to do. So we have all our destinations here. We want to go to my external hard drive, and we want to go toe row files. Okay. And that's where we want to import all the images. And as you can see, I've select different images from different years. The reason why it's just to show you how smart it's light room. I kept images from 16 4000 72,018 Light room is gonna pull the information from each image , and it's going to create their own folders exact date when they're taken. How cool is that? Yeah, obviously, if you shoot everything in one day, you're gonna have just one folder from this year containing the exact date when you shoot. But I wanted to mix the images so I can show you how smart light roominess and what is doing when it's come to import images. How great. Organize everything to you. So there you go. Let's click. Oh, just before we go for any reason you want to import just certain images. What you can do is just go down here. I'm checked All And let's say you want to say like this this and this image to be important to this place, you just press keep bell, Commander control key on your windows, select images you want and just click one of them to select. Oh, and as you can see, like room on the side is gonna gray out the folders which create earlier because we don't import this images anymore and is going to keep on Lee the folders related this image, just which we still like. Anyway, we want to select the mole, so we keep them all and just hit import. And this is when light room is gonna move everything from the desktop important to your new catalogue. I know. So it's gonna add them to your collection. Just wait a few seconds. There you go. Now, as you can see on the top here, it's building Oneto One preview. Let me just show you what that means if you go quick and this is because it's not very big images they loved good. But if you're if you're with massive images, they will load slowly. And that's why building preview like I say, mention like I mentioned earlier. It's very good for you. Now we have our cut. The look contain all these photography's. Then we have our collection here, so if we click on it, all the images city inside in this collection and then we have our fumes strip everything ready. Remember, I told you can change keywords. So let's say I want to put more keywords for this specific image. If you click here on the small look, look, The images let me just make the time Now is bigger so you can see what I'm talking about. On the bottom, you have, like a small label off the image. That's the key words when you can. I did. If you click on it, the keyword is gonna go white. Otherwise, it's a great or you can just click different directly on the key word window when the image is selected. And then I want to put, for example, that I took up and put the right color and that see, he's going to save them there and this image if I want to search for a some image in the future like keyword, please. I want to search correct no, right through cup. But I sent and he's gonna give me just the right through Correa and is going to give me all the camera options and everything. What? Lance. I use what the common I use and all other options, like a wedding season, classic images, role files and everything. Okay, so that's what's happening. Guys, everything. It's important. As you can see, it's a little bit longer and actually be overwhelming, I presume for you, but it's very important to remember. I'm sorry about the noise. Stopped training, so I'm going to stop when it's finished. But I just wanted to say important images. It's the most important part in the life room because this is when you can organize your library, your catalogues, your smart collection. You get yourself organized. So when you move later on to the developed process to anything and anything else, you know you're organized. You all in one place, everything. It's nice and tidy and you're not gonna lose anything. You have your backups down. You have your catalogues, your smart collections. Everything gets picked up. So take a few times. Watch this lesson. If you need to go for away, get some of the images, which I send you and obviously important. Practice the different import settings, try different things and see how you feel about it. But I hope it's certainly helping you to understand the important process, and I'll see you in the next lesson. Have a good day 4. Library Settings Explained: Let's take a look. Few more adoptions in the library. I wanted to show you just a little bit more about the keywords and about the metadata. How you can amend these things on a bunch of images on single image and also just to show you a few off the other selective options in the library before we move toe. A quick explanation of the publishing services. So we're ing our library at the moment. We already create our couple look collection, import everything, and we're already pretty much for the cooling process. But I wanted to explain fume or things here about the library so you can kind of have more for understanding. What can you do in your library? For example, let's take the first image. If we still like the first image on the right side here, you're going to see, first of all, on the top, the key words Okay, this is when it's happening. Your editing process on a single image. When we import images to our catalogue and to our collection, we just put a quick keywords for all of them together. But if you want for any reason to change any of the images. Let's say if we go on the sunset, we can just put sunset. And this is gonna change this image with these keywords. If we go on different image, you see the sunset is disappeared. What? It's that it's helping you in future. If you want to find images with sunset light room, it's gonna browse all the keywords in your catalogs, and it's gonna pop out the images with sunset only. So it's quite easy and faster search instead of trying to think. Or when they I took this image. What dated waas when it waas light room is gonna do it for you. Okay, keywords suggestions at the moment we won't do that because this is building up with time, more keywords you using for different images light room is going to remember and is gonna give you start giving your suggestions for new image important for new images so you can just click on them and straight away at the keywords to the actual keyword Stop down here you have the key workplace, so let me just close the keywords. You have the keywords list and already, as you can see, you have 15 images with classic images. 15 with profiles, one with sunset. So it's giving you basically countdown on what kind off key words? I mean, how many images contain this keyword and that is the metadata. Now, here you can make amendments for your images to change the metadata of damage by the four. The light room is gonna pull the file name it's gonna create, obviously folded with the date. So it's gonna create this folder here with date. He's gonna put a copyright, as you can see at the moment because it's my image copyright. Don't worry about that. But this is what I put on my images, then copyright status. Then you can make it as a public domain. Unknown copyright it. Who is the creator? Supplication. If you want out some think rating of the image, you can label A and this is the camera setting. Eventually. If your camera have GPS, it will be here. Now. Some cameras have some cameras. Don't It's not a big deal. The GPS. It's more about if you want, for example, to use in future the map in light room. It's gonna place the images to the relevant coordinates of the GPS. But let's say we want to change this image so we can just put title sunset. We can write different capture than we can change the copyrights, too. OK, I'll just leave my name. We can change the copyrights and weaken. Let's say Put five stars these five stars. This is part of the cooling process, which it's another lesson, and we're gonna go through everything there. But I'm just showing you how to change it. And this is a pretty much that the images change. So if you go on different one, you'll see half of these things is gonna disappear. You hear force options. For example, if it's a single day of shooting on the same location, same product or same event, you can select all your images. So just electoral and hold down shift key and select the rest of it. And, as you can see on the top is gonna be file name mixed. So this is because each one of these images have different file names. If you click on the side on this small icon is gonna open this rename four photos dialogue when you can rename them or you can basically right one one name for these photo station, for example. You had a birthday and let's say, Steve Birthday so you can just write. Steve Berlin is gonna change all of them then his changes, titles captures copyright, everything. It's absolutely the same if I change the copyright toe unknown light room is going open. This warning? No, like a warning, but reminder dialogue. Some people press don't show again because they know what they're doing. But I always like to keep this as a reminder, just in case I messed up with something because it's giving you one more step before you actually applied these changes. So light Room is gonna ask you, Do you want to really apply the metadata changes toe of the selected photos. If you're fine with these, you just press select, and that's a is gonna change all four of them. So, basically, the metadata it's really important, especially if you're really first about copyright. So you want to have some protection of your images. Not like it's gonna percent protected, but at least it's giving us, um, evidence, the images taken by you and you're the owner of this image. Okay, comments. It's not supported here. So we're gonna lift this one, and pretty much. This is it. If you look on the top here, there's a small bar which is called library Future, so you can switch off the future. You can select permanent future to stay there. Or you can just go in this options here and future your images by text So any searchable takes or you can ask file, name or copy, name or keywords. Then you have attributes the attributes. It's more a part of the cooling process, which I'm going to show you later on. So it's giving adoptions toe future. Your images by pick images, neutral, rejected, different type of very its if its editor or no ratings and colors. Okay, this is all what it's happening here. Metadata Pretty much the same situation. But then you can find, for example, if you have sunset, you want to find images with sunset, you just click on the key work and find imagery the sunset and you're ready to go. Maybe you have few different cameras, so you wanna pull the images from one of your cameras. You can choose here, and also you can choose by lances or by levels. Yeah, By the fourth, the light room is going to stay on non filters off. It's up to you how we want to build up your working process and what it's. You know, I mean your desire workflow On the bottom bar here in your library you have the thumbnail slider, which is giving adoptions to make the smaller or bigger the term nails. You can choose what you want to see on this top name slider, for example. If I put rotate is gonna put the rotation of the images so I can took one image. I can just rotate it straight away here. So this is the small arrow here when you can decide what options you want to have on this bar, okay? Or you can just have, you know, I mean, the select, all of them, and it pretty much you won't have anything. But I like to keep some of the options here. For example, this is a quick option to show you the 1st 1 Let's go on the full screen. So first wanted to show you thumbnails than full screen. Then the 2nd 1 is to select candidates selected candidate it's you looking one image, and you want to compare with other images to see, for example, if it's in the same temperature exposure, etcetera, etcetera, so you can compare toe images sort of a view. I don't. You stop to be honest, so I don't think you gonna ever use it. Faces so faces. It's, for example, if you have images and you want to name the faces in the images if you work regularly with people or models or company. So whatever is the reason you can start finding faces in the entire cattle walk. Then you can add name. And then when it's up, everything light room is going to recognize this face is in the future or a police. If it's think is the same face, it's going to give your suggestion and you'll decide you obviously you know. So you say, Oh, no, that's not that face or it's not their name. Or if it's dark name, you just press okay and you're fine. I don't use that because obviously I work with more those. But as I say, I always create separate catalogues. Doesn't matter is the same model. It's a different shooting, so I like to keep them on a different date in in different folders, then the sorting. How you want to sort your images here alphabetically, or you want to go capture time at it or they're all these options. It's here for you is depends what it's worked for. You really the best. This is also here. The colors so you can color caught your images. But this is part of the cooling process. You don't really gonna do it at the moment, so I will show you when we do the cooling process. One last thing I'm if I forgot to mention earlier, when we create our cut the locks and collections when you're in your library, you can easily find I know it's not a big deal because you're gonna know these things. But light ramo so money to your external hard life when you're safe, your images and, as you can see it says here. 15 photos, 3 47.1 gigabyte Total space, 1000 gigabytes. So it's monitoring my car. Dr Finn. It's a it's a quite good. For example, if you keep everything images and just don't check your life, you can have a visual here and just money to your hard drive space. And this is it. Guys, this is all about the library. I know it's probably a lot to take, but as everything else, if you're new to the light room or you just have a if you attempt to work with light room don't be afraid, because all these is gonna come natural with the time and more use it more. You get used to your workflow and you build your own system importing images, creating catalogues, making the collections and all this adjustment to keywords, metadata and everything else. You will find it Solwezi in the future. And basically you won't even think about it. It's just gonna be like automatic part of your daily or weekly workflow. Depends how busy are as a photographer or a teacher and how often using flight from this is it all about the library? And it's left only one model, which I want to touch a quick on it and maybe show later on the class cow tow, use it fully, but just wanted to give a quick overview so you know what it is and just don't wander around. Think off. I don't know what to do with that. And this is the publishing. Okay? The publishing service, which I really want quickly show you before we moved to the development and we start with the actual riel engine off lightly. 5. Publish Services: Let's take a look. The publishing services. It's something which you may not use it all. I don't know many people using it. I've been using it very heavily some point. But with time might photography's change in the way How I do photography in the way how I work has changed, so pretty much Stop using it. But it's a good things to know, and it's helping because he let you stay in the light room. For example, if you want to share your images, state the Way toe social network, you can just do it from here without even leaving the software. So it's It's quite good, you know, for building Conlan galleries or if you publishing toe adobe stalk, then you want to sell your images, it will help you. But in this case, when you upload to Adobe, then you have to go to Adobe and do some extra work before the final publishing. Anyway, I just wanted to show it quick and maybe in some point later, after we moved to the develop molt and we moved with anything, can we go through all the editing process and everything? What the development fast, awful. I may come back to it and show you how to upload a few things. Maybe no, but a police. I want to show you now what the publishing services is doing for you. Okay, You're publish services. It's here, down on the bottom, just under the collection. So let's click and open A. I will close for the moment the rest of the fathers just so we can look it up. So or you can do You can publish your images directly to a hard drive. External hard life from here. Which, to be honest, I don't think anybody using it Maybe somebody's using it because we do import the images and export them. So I've never find any reason for me. Toe set up the hard life As I mentioned before, I have 500 pics of account. I have Adobe stock account when I sell my images. Obviously Facebook. I have the wrist account coming with a can on because I'm kind on user, but never use it. And obviously, Instagram. However, I had so many other services before. And as you can see this bottom here, which it says, find more services online. If you click on that it's gonna give you available services, which you can add to your light room. For example, his website. Whole past galleries. As far I remember abuses before they have their own plugging for light room, which you install, and instead of going through the whole process, uploading images to your past gallery, you can just send them from here directly to the gallery if you're using one of these online galleries to send images for proving to your clients, so let's let's just grab one of them. And let's just show you quick the set up dialogue. I won't set up anything because I stop using them, but just wanted to show you a quick So if you press on any of them, is the set up here on the side is going on. Opened the light from publishing manager, and this is where you set up. Oh, your services, which you want to use each one of them have obviously a different way, so you need to read through the actual instructions and follow them to set up because each one have different, so I'll change. She's asked me to safe. I don't want to say if I just want to change to a different set of this show. So you see, Adobe stock was having a different options in ah, different requirements than 500 pixel have different requirements. For example, most of the plug ins created for light room. It's pretty much kind of a similar. You need to log in to your 500 pics of account in this case, then you can out description here, war Is this published surgery, So obviously output 500 take cells. Then when you're logging, this is gonna out arise the plug it and light Rhino starts obviously talking to 500 pigs so you can choose the fire setting. What kind of quality? What is the limit Size, the four month if you want to. This ice that show image for importing If you want to change the output, for example, sharpened for screen Or obviously, when you share online, you you're not gonna go for mate or glossy paper. So you're just gonna leave it screen because this is wanna come automatic from the actual plugging, and then you can decide what kind of a metadata you want share. And in the end, it's your watermark So this is when you set the If you have set up watermark, you can at the watermark here. If you don't have set up, that is option. Edit watermarks. When you go there, you will set up your watermark and then you can use it. So basically disses it about publishing services. I just wanted to mention to you it's a part of light room. It's an option. I don't know how often you're going to use it, To be honest with you, I stopped. He was in a bar. It's there, simple as that. So I just don't want to leave it in. You want the Rinko? Why doesn't talk about the publishing service? So this is it. Guys, if you want to play with and you want to try, it is very simple, as I say, Find extra publishing services or try to set up one of them and just see how I was going in . If it's okay for you. But remember Facebook, it stops supporting, so I don't know if it's any playing their instagram, I think still supporting, and I think that's making the most useful place when you're going to show your images So have a go on. Do let me know if it's OK for you. And you like the options which, like, room awful here. I'll see you in the next lesson. 6. Culling Process, Flagging and Staring: Let's take a look now, the next model of the license and of this class, and this is the cooling process. The cooling process is simple. The moment when you actually loathe your images import light room and you have to sit down in the site which one is good? Which one is back? A. Simple as that it's a very important part of your working process. It's a very important part before you actually sent the images to your client because you don't want to send them images, which it's not looking professional or half some bloody elements, or it's under exposed, overexposed and so on and so forth. Okay, it's a really important part, and it needs to take your full attention, and you need to sit down and decide really, what part of the session you have to keep and what part you just have toe thrush or never see a daylight's. I will say, Don't trash old images and tee off. Don't deliver 100% the session and everything stepped up with your clients, but take the time and decide which one of the images has to go and has to be shown to your clients Okay, I will tell you about my cooling process. Definitely. I'm not saying this is the best process, but is the one which worked for me and is the one which it's proved on the long term that it's saving time and it's keep me organized, and it's helping me with my work flow. In the next step, when you're going toe, develop molten where we go to the anything of the images because you can actually organize yourself really good light room is giving you, as they say, few options. So, first of all, you have the option to reject image. Second, you have function toe pick image. Then you have starting rating from 1 to 5 stars, and then you have also color labeling. So this is four different options to choose from and to play with them and to organize them in workflow, which is best suit your job. Okay, in my case, what I do it's pretty simple. I first go through the images and I just go through all of the images, and I just look for the bad one. Okay, so let's say if I have 300 images, I just go through them I don't look for a good images. I don't look for nothing, which is going press me. Obviously, something will pop out, but I just keep it because this is not my attention of the moment. This is not what I want to concentrate on the first step I do. It's to reject the images, which I think it's not good enough to show to my client. Then I'll take a little break. Welcome back, and then I'm going to start with Peaks the images, which I actually really, really like when I finish with rejection and picking the images that I'm gonna start starting the images and this is what it's come the cool part because the lighter is giving adoptions from 1 to 5 stars in my workflow everything under three stars. It's not good enough to go anywhere, however, I keep it until the end. But if it's one or two stars, I usually don't even put the stars. But I just ignore this image is everything from 34 and five stars. It's a images which and it say If it's a five star, it is good to go. If it's a four star, I need just a little touch now and then. If it's a three star, I see potential in the image, and I still want to show it to the client and assure them that if they like any of these images, I will spend extra time off anything, and I'll give them a totally different image in that. Okay, then it's living on Lee. One option. The color labels and I use this option after I actually added the images, because this is when finally, I have pick images, the stars. And if I finish with anything, I pick all the edit images, which its top of the list. I give them a certain color label, then the next one, which I still like it, and I still think they're really good images. But obviously I'm not 100% sure about them, and I don't know what client will say about them. So I'll give them different color and finally, images, which I really want to touch on them. They may be no picked from the client, but there's always a difference between how you look, your images and how the client loved images. So it's a good idea, and I'll give you this tape. This one which is, for example, three stars I knew. I think that is a potential in them. Big few of them, which is the best. And given the final touches and show them to your clients, they may say no, we don't want them there, fiber. We don't want them. However, you can touch them and you can give them as the bombs, like just a little gesture from you. This is my system. But explaining like this obviously it won't give you the visual. And I think now it's time for us to move to light room so I can show you. Actually, how I did my cooling process and how I organized my images before I show to the client. Okay, we're in light through. We still in library the cooling process. I want to be done in development. The reason why it's because development is giving with the full screen of the image. And obviously you can see it much and much better compressed. The on the keyboard is going to send you to development. No photo. Select it. Obviously, I start with the images and I start to roll through them just used arrows key on your keyboard and just go through the images. So when you look in each, it's first things to look. It's obviously easy. A sharp enough is enough. Lighting is enough information in actual image so you can edit this. So, for example, let's say this image if you have an image like that and that's the normal exposure, there's no I'm not saying it's impossible toe make the image look good, but there's no worth it because he's gonna have a lot of noise. It's gonna come really grainy and you don't want that. Okay, so go through the images, and when you go through the image, this is what's happened. If you press X on your keyboard, the X key, look down here on the filmstrip. When is the first image? If I pressed, X key is gonna set us rejected. So this is what I do. In my first step. I go through the images and I say, OK, I like these or I don't like that. And if I don't like a I just press X okay, set. It's rejected. Here on the bottom, you can see the small black flag that's what it's mean, the image it's rejected. So if I go back to the library just to show you a quick you can see the images switches rejected, have the black flag here on the top. And also they're kind of a deemed so you can straight away see the difference which images going away and which one is going to stay. Okay, if you click on it, Obviously it's still like the normal view. But when you get out of it, it's gonna be like this Dim down with a great overlay. Right? So this is the rejection process. Simple was that you just go through all images, keep your finger on the X button and just go through them and just reject whatever you certain and 100% sure you don't want picking process. If the opposite is gonna put a white flag conned image and this is again you can use here the white flag button or use the short cut a key on the keyboard Use P. Okay, let's say I like this image I pressed. Be Flaccus big. I like this image I placed Be flock that speak. Okay, I will leave this to for the moment just to show you the next step when I'm start doing the star writing. So when you go through the reject and through the picking process, you already have a clear view of what you want. Toe keeping where you want to reject. And it's time now from the picked images to select the best one and make our way down 23 stars to separate them in the quality in the work, in anything process. So you know, for the next step when you start anything, you know what it's gonna take you more time and what is going to be the quickest and which one you want to concentrate more on the bottom. Here you have futures. Okay, so why fight Peak, for example, I will pick for five images. The future's here. It's giving adoption to select images with based on the status of the image. Okay. As you can see, you have first the white flock. You have the neutral. You have the rejected one you have if it's edited stars and the colors. So at this point, at this moment we have only the flux because we picked and we reject. So I five, fueled by picked photos. You see it's gonna height all other photos, which don't have any information on them. And he's gonna leave me on Lee with a picked one. Simple as that and is good for you because you avoid any destruction in any waste of time to go through images which you already gone through and you don't want to look again. Okay, so how my star system work? I look for the image and I decide if it's good enough or if it's not good enough. For example, this image if I zoom here, as you can see, there's a lot of blurred going on. But that's fine, because in this image I made my focus on the camera. I focus on the first chocolate cake here and everything on the back. It's going nice and bloody, and that was the idea. I wanted to concentrate on this chocolate. Why? Because at the moment of time, when I took the shots and I took many different shots from different angles, I was thinking, maybe crop this image and just bring the cake more forward. So all these things on the back it's gonna be cropped so I didn't much care about how bloody is going to be because that was attentional. So I will say this image for me. It's four stars because I have to put a little working it to make It is the final result. How I want so Or you need to do its press number four on your keyboard, and it's gonna set the rating to four stars. Or you can go here in the bar on the bottom and just go slight to the four stars for five starts. Whatever you decide. Easiest way it's keyboard 1 to 5 on the keyboard. It's giving the stars 12345 So pressed for stars. Then I go to the next image. I love this image. It's totally what I wanted to be. It will be very Lito effort here of everything, just to touch some colors and Toby of lighting. So this one, it's five starts straight away, this one a good image, but it's not. Ah, even I took it. It's a little bit as you can see the perspective. It's going Lee Toby Funny, it's needed just man's. He needs to work on the colors of the gold of the green in its anything of the sky and some enhancement off colors. Maybe a little be making it more like a HDR image, so I have quite a little bit of work. But as I mentioned earlier, it's an image with lots of potential because still have a lot of information in the image. Don't forget, you work with the role fires, so you have such a lot of information in the image. However, I'll pick as a three star, so I know I have to put some work in it, and it's a potential good image, so I don't want to get rid of it. Okay, this one, I like it. There's a lot of feeling the image, and obviously there is some cleanup to be done and everything, but still fantastic image. So I'm gonna put four style, so I know I need to put a little effort in this image. This shop, it's more editorial short, so I took it on the street. Obviously, it was a really quick shop, so it is gonna have a lot of blurred. I didn't have external flash with me. Fijians moving things got putting a lot of lights reflection in the back of the building. So the lighting waas because the wintertime, the lighting cross changing very fast because of clouds and everything. However, I love the image for the purpose off the actual image content. So I'm gonna hit five starts on this, and I'm gonna work my way to make it a little bit better. Okay? And this is a Now, as you can see, we reject our images, which we think it's absolutely no worth it to keep. Then we pick the one which we want to keep, and then we start each one of them to give us the idea what we have to do. So now, if I go to the future and I press the five stars, I'm gonna live only with two images. So what I'm gonna do first, I'm gonna concentrate my myself on the images with the five starts when I go to anything, and I'm going to finish first with them. Then I'm going at the four stars, and then I'm gonna finish finally on the three starts, okay? And this is how it's work. Very simple, very easy. It will save a lot of time if you go this way. I don't say you have to follow exactly. But at least it's giving idea how to build and helped organize yourself when cooling the images. One filter left and this is the current. Let the I'm sorry this is the color labels, but I use them after I added the images. If you want, you can still use them here if you think it's helping you. In my case, I used them after I did it images so I can actually select which one. It's top of the least following following down to the three stars and we're done with the cooling process, so I'll see you in the next morning. 7. Develop Module Explained: Let's start with the development. This is the place when you actually gonna edit your images, Try to be as quick as possible, but noting the horrible way because I don't want other stinks. However, some of the addict process I wanted to see it proper and have full understanding. So we better take a little bit more time. But at least you have full understanding off the sliders of the developed moat and all the setting which has to offer. All right, so let's do it. Okay, we're in the development. First things first. We're gonna talk about presets later on, so I'm just gonna leave it away at the moment. I don't want the presets. Another thing, which I don't want to see on my screen, is the fumes strip. Why? Because just with arrows on your keyboard, you can move through the images between them, so you don't need to physically see this. So all you have to do is just close this pretty set top with all the history and everything because I don't really want to see it here. I don't use the History Channel anyway and then close the fumes Street. Fantastic. Look at us. So you have a bigger image, bigger working space, and you'll see much better. What's happening. Then you can increase this slider on the side, because this way you have more precise control on the sliders here. Okay, let's see now. First image. First of all, let's explain very quickly. Developed moat. Let's close everything and just give you a quick run down. I know I give you a quick run down in the beginning, but because now we're in the development. I want to go through the things here on the top. You have your history, Graham are very important because it's giving you information about the lighting of your images, colors and everything. And most important, it's going to give you the under exposed points and the overexposed When I go on the top here on the right hand side, this is your light. This is the highlight. So when you go over the triangle, you see all this red pop out This is me in the skies, over exposed. If I go on the blue, you can see fuel. Small blue dots come around only around the shadows. This is mean. It's too dark. Okay, the shadows, so they're like under exposed. But it's a good thing because if you click on them, they're froze your over and under exposure. So when you go next to the basic panel here and you wanna check all your exposure, contrast, skylights and everything, this is where you can actually remove all these overexposed places or the under exposed places. Okay, so the hissed a gram, it's been testing toe. Just so you know, let me say if I moved to library his to ground doesnt work in library this way is just showing a general information. OK, nothing else. Onley in development is gonna give it option to see or picking on the highlights and on the shadows. OK, the two bar. I will go on this on a separate lesson, so we'll leave it for the moment. Then you have your basics, adjustments and your dunkers. What these do dunkers. It's a very powerful toe, and it's absolutely fantastic if you work with and if you get used to work with that, because it's not only work on your lighting can exposure and shadows and meet tones of your image like for example, let me just change it first, So I want to show you this. So it's working, as you can see. Highlights, lights, darks and shadows. OK, but also there's a small button here on the bottom. If you press that, you're gonna send you to your RGB color. So, first of all, it's work on lights, meet tones and shadows, but then also have adoptions, toe work on your colors and the main colors. NRG beats right green and blue. So not only you can just liking here, but you can adjust colors and even you can color great your image to the certain point where it's nice and miles better than what you see at the moment. Okay, but as always, we gonna start first with basic the basic half all important sliders for your image toe. Put your basic setting, and then you start anything more and more on the top. You have your temperature and taint. Then you have your tone, which it's contained. Exposure contrast highlights shadow whites and blacks, and then you have the presence clarity, de Hayes, Vibrance situation, light room. It wasn't that good in the previous versions, but since the last few updates, the guys in Adobe did such a good job and they really did a magical job with the out of flight room. So let's go through this. I have picking on the highlights, so I fight gold down with the highlights. You see the pickings gonna disappear. Also the image. It's not over exposed, but it's beads. It's enough exposed. To be honest, you can bring verily, Toby explosion down. Then I want to bring the contrast up a little way. And I'm gonna go on white and go down a little bit on the white So my overexposed, it's totally gone. Okay, It's fantastic. Now, shadows If I bring down you see, the under exposure it started coming back more and more so I'm gonna put the shadows up and I'm gonna pop up the blocks. All right, then, because it's a lot of green in the image. You don't want to go think green or go too much magenta. I'll just put a just a little touch of magenta and maybe bring the temperature. Let me see if I go on the war. No, bring the temperature just to touch down. Okay, that's what we have before. That's what we have after, before and after. I think I mentioned, If no backslash on your keyboard, you just press and you see before and after. Or if you want to see a visual like this to compare, you can see before and after when you click down your options for before and after. Okay, right. A lot of trees, a lot of green, a lot of lives going on. So I will half a little be more off the clarity. It'll be more of the contrast now, as you can see anything processes going opened down all the time. So when you bring the clarity up, this is gonna bring back some of the under exposure, because that's how clarity, working contrast, they work on the dark side of damage. So let's have a look on. Bring a little bit more shadows and the block up. Okay, now Tom Curves does the cooper. Your top three angle of the tongue curves. It's your lighting highlights. Your bottom is the shadow. Let's put it this way. As you can see, it split in the middle with the line. So remember lightest bottom shadows top lights, so bottom underground top sky. There you go, where lights coming from where lights doesn't go and you have your middle, which is the meat tones. Well, you can do here. It's for example, if this if you have this small I condition like you can put points on your line, you can just kind of a workout your way. But it's not very Feitian and I pretty much never used the region here. Okay, I always have this click and working out to be because when I'm on hard to be, I can up points to my lying here. However, anything point could move the line because it doesn't matter how precise your with a mouse . It could move fully, Toby. So to freeze this when we are renting points, you just press old key on your keyboard. This is gonna freeze everything. And you can just put one point on the highlights one on the meat tones, one on the shadows, and then you can just manipulate different point off the lighting. So, for example, if you go on highlights, you can bring you see getting overexposed, you can bring it down. But remember, this is affect the whole image. No, just the sky. Okay, then mitt tones. You say it's changing the meat tones. I'm just showing off here. I'm not going to use the curve in this image, and this is what's happening. Here you go. Same situation. It's with the colors. Let's say we choose green. If I go up, it's gonna make more greener. And if I go down, is gonna go down to Magenta. But it is great because you can just go a little bit down. Let's say in the shadows, and you can just bring some magenta in the shadows if you want. Or you can go in the highlights and bring some magenta in the sky. I mean depends of damage, however, what I want to say you can control here with the basic and with the tone curves you control your lighting, contrast and colors to some point. Also, you have in the basic of vibrance of the image when you can bring more vibrance in the image or saturation. Okay, so lots happening. Guys, let's change different image. Let's go to this one. I want to show you the out option here in the basic. You can go from the manual, but let's see, Look at what's happened when you press out. I think light room is doing fantastic job. The clipping king. The stand is going to flipping in the skies gone. It's left early, Toby of the under exposed, But that's absolutely normal because this image general, it's really dark. So it's absolutely fight. I'm just going to bring the black a little be more up, and I'm going to give it a little more touch on the shadows. And then you go. You have your based image, everything by setting here so you can start working out. Let's find that Let's, for example, this one I want to see. No, here we go, sleeping on the son. Of course it will be clipping. Let's press out toe again and see what light room is going Fantastic. Just a little bit on the corner. I'm gonna bring the black up and not say I'm having a fantastic time here with this. Out of options is beautiful. So if I pressed back slash before after before after okay, so let's close them now for a moment. Then you have the H self color and split toning split tonic. It's Maura about futures and putting kind of a different feel to your images, and we'll show you it's not very help, so it's a cool to to use many people avoid it. I love I really like it, but it's not essential. Okay, so if you, if you decide to me, said it's absolutely fine, here is the most important part because this is where you're gonna play with your colors. Okay, you have the huge situation in the luminous so Hugh, it's obviously let's pick a color, which it's more prominent in this image. The orange, you say, is gonna bump the colors if you play with a few. The situation also is gonna make it going to the black and white or is going to give it more saturated color and luminess. It's obviously lighting and dark. You can play with the light and dark in the color. It's a fantastic to. You can choose color here, and you can just go through a different colors and what your way to the like a separate colors. I always keep it on hscei. I never go to color, so it's up to you. There's another small option here just by dragging. Okay, each one of them have the small circle here. If I click on and go on top of the image, you're going to see a small circle with arrows up and down. This is very precise and definitely more precise than you. Moving sliders, for example. I want to concentrate on the blue. I'm gonna click here and going to go up so a C is gonna change the few of these blue What I am and it's moving the slider. If I go here, is gonna work with the orange in with the yellows and the same in situation. I go there, I click again here, and I decide I want to have more such rate color. I want to have more saturated blues in the sky. I want to bring here some of these reflections, but this is going affect down a swell. So this is when a few extra tools is gonna come later on. Same with the luminous See. You can bring more lights to the sky. You can go dark on the sunshine or you can go. It's more precise because its content concentrate only on the color, which is actual peak. Detect there and it's moving on Lee this slider split, toning. Let's just split toning. Let's see where we can do split Tony so I can explain to you more war. It's about what I will do. Split toning here. First of all, we will open the basic, just going to give him a quick out to. There you go, beautiful and I want because it's a lot off, like chrome and blacks here. It's a good contrast. I want to give more clarity to this image to bring a little with contrast up together. So with a contrast and with clarity, I want to bring a little, be the shadow and bring down the highlights. Okay, then let's see if I picked the hue and go on this. What's gonna happen? Because it's taking a reflection from the sky. There's a certain blue reflected in the brown, Okay, and you see how cool is that is changing proper the color. But what I want to go is to go more to the sky. Part of the reflection given this kind of a nice to work waas blue, Then I'm gonna pick the situation and let's see what's work better if we go darker or we go lighter. Yeah, we go. Alito be dark side and then luminous. Too much light. We'll get early, Told me moody, and put it down. Okay, so we did. They just say we did the basic. The tongue curves. I want touch here at all. But if you decide that's a put point and maybe want to bring down the blacks. Another tip here. If you want to bring the black slowly and have more control over this point, just hold down old key on your keyboard and it's gonna go really slowly. So they go out, bring early Toby Black down in this corner. So I have this nice cloud. The reflection. I think it's cool and then obviously gave some more lighting on the actual headlights of the car. Then let's go down to the split toning because that was the idea to show you. But again, I want to repeat few of the steps. So you know what I'm saying? And you kind of remember what it's walked in. What he's doing split during, for example, this is the highlights. This is the shovels. I'm just going to bring them up now with something colors here, then you can change the highlights colors we choose to have some blue reflection. So I want to get a little bit of the blue ish in the highlights. But I kind of don't like this blue. So if you click on this color, you can make manual pick. Yeah, just some different blows. That's gold. This way. Here. Okay. Gets a little bit down here and then the shadows. You cannot color to the shadows. OK, so in this case, I'm gonna go with some. Think like what we can do. Maybe it'll be a like a year. No, that's too yellow. What about if we got some green, a little big green, and then bring down the situation of the green and bring down the situation of the highlights? Let's see if you switch off here, the button you show you before and after. Not very big difference, But there is a difference. Then you can choose in the balance if you want to concentrate more on the highlights or you wanna concentrate more on the shadows. OK, that's was basically this plate toning do. And to close this, I will just wanna go through this very quick. This is a final kind of ah, how to say adjustments and more detailed adjustments. For example, the details you will use this time to time because this is where you can see certain part of the images If you click this square and let's say I want to see how sharp it's here, the lighting and the around the light if I click, that is gonna freeze there. So as you can see, we heavily Toby of noise. If we bring down the sharpening, it's gonna disappear. But then he's gonna get bloody. So I want to keep this shot. But I will art some luminous too soft in early two with the sharp. Then you have the Mask Inc of the sharpening. You have details how sharp you want to be. Have the radios how big sto be the grain playing without. You don't have to use it all the time, but it's a good option. And then under details, let me leave it open. Actually, lens correction, transform effects calibration. I don't even these very off then, and I don't think you will have to use it. But this is lance calibration. If you have some distortion or some fringes transform toe. This is quite good because let's I could take pictures, architecture or something, which it's have a good line on the horizon in your camera. It's not till proper you may have like, for example, with this car. As you can see, the Frog bumper is just coming here, there in the corner. If I want, I can press out to and see what the light room's gonna do. Horrible things so we won't press out two very good options here I use most of the time it's levels, so in this case it's not really working, but levels. It could do a really good job for you. For example, let's say I want to do who is on toe. You see, you can move horizontal damage and you can adjust vertical A swell. As I say, never use this. I mean, sometimes I use the levels, but end of the day it is a helpful, but it's very fine adjustments, and, uh, I don't think you're going to use it Effect. This is where you can put some Vigna. Think around image if you like. Vigna thinks which I do. But most of the time I make mine in photo shop Or if you want some more like a fume effect old fume effect, you can put some graining. Let me just stop this history around because it's start bother me Now you see, it's making the grain the Mitch more grainy. You can put bigs like a size bigger Roath nous, and you can just make it look like old image or likeness taken with very high. I s also in the low lights, so it's making it like a looking old and, you know, like old grain film. And I think this is it. Here, load any images of your slowed this images and just go through these things because it's a lot final teaching this class, it's not about to teach you the actually touching of the image. It's about to obviously show you how to use the slights, the models, and actually to. So in the next lesson, I'm gonna show you the small toolbar on top of the development. When you can do the crow pink, you can do the great and future radio filter that I die fixing and the custom brushes. Okay, I'll see you in the next lesson. 8. Develop Mode Toolbar: welcome back. And I hope you had a time to go through everything while I show you in the first lesson of the developed the first part. I mean, yeah, it's the first part because we like the toolbar talk very out of the picture. But now we're gonna go back to it because I wanted to keep this a separate model. So you see what kind of difference you're gonna make with the toolbar? Because all the slides and everything which I showed earlier it's too Editori mission. Make old adjustments about lighting colors in the levels on a calibration and everything. But here we going toe how I like to say it the precise adjustments of your photo because you have more control over the photo in a different way after you did everything else about you can add more extra story or photo and do your editing process. Actually bring your editing process to a next level. So let's jump in the white room and I'll show you what I mean. So here on the top, it's your crop toe or crop overlay or great overlay. Whatever you wanna call it, it's basically what is doing. If you click on it, it's gonna show you. Let me just remove down. That's something which I'm gonna show you later on. So this is your crop too. Okay, This is where you can crop your image, Whatever you want, parts of or whatever part of them that you wanna keep. You can crop and everything else disappear. Also in the crop to you have already set up presets for, let's say, one toe, one if you want for by 58 by 10 and different presets or also presets for a screen. Okay, let's say you want to save this for screen for a Web. You don't want to save it for print. You can just straight away do it from here. There's a little angle here, which it's also giving you options to retain the images. You can do it manually. If you want, or you can do it, you can level it, so this small level here, if you took a few, let's say Click on that and you wanna level the photo. Let me just reset everything back to normal and let's say you want level. This image. All you need to do is just click this level. Go on the image and follow a line which it's the horizontal line which you want. Level this image so you can just go keep your shift key to go straight. And if you release the light room is gonna do it for you, okay? Or you can just go and choose out to and light room is going to do it. Us the actual light room software Think is the best. Okay, we were set everything, and we're gonna move toe the next two. I'm sorry about that. Right. Next one. This is the healing and cloning to a very powerful, not as powerful as the photo shop, but for a basic adjustment for a basic healing and cloning. It's fantastic. So let's click on it and you see what's happening. You have no options here clone or he'll clone. Obviously, it's exactly what it's mean. It's gonna clone one certain area toe another one, 1 to 1 when hell is gonna try to find the best much impossible pixels, lighting and color and everything to heal the spot which you want to hear. So let's put the induction. The top here is the size of your cloning to, So let's bring it somewhere here on the black. As you can see, if your mouths have a scrolling on the mouse, you can just grow up and down and you can increase the size. If not, you can just increase it from here. The feather Obviously, it's giving you how much feather if you want really sharp brush and sharp killing. Two without feathering. Or you want to put feather because the small circle inside it's when everything happening and the big circle outside. It's when the father things happened. So as you can see, let me just put one here and see if I can. You see. He's if I go down and just move it somewhere more obvious, right? See this circle? This is where let's say I decide to heal some think, but because it's taking a little bit of the great of the car of the frog grill, you can see this here, so let's see if I'm going to a sharp, proper brush. You're gonna five, a nice good line around the circle. But if you go on, the feathering is gonna feather everything really nicely. And if you're feeling proper, you'll be almost impossible Toe spot on. Okay. And obviously the opacity this is again if you want to be 100% visible or you want just a little healing and you don't Toby damn much visible. We will remove that because it's not what we want, just like me. Show you what's happening. For example, healing, like just press is set on the keyboard. And then when you hold down the space bar, you can move around the image. Okay, I just want to show something. Look at this. More specs here. Obviously, it's not a big deal, but you make your size a smaller. It's possible just to go around the area which you want to heal. If you click on a light room is gonna find the closest possible matching place where it's much because a big sell its color and everything, and it's gonna heal if you click on this back the same on this one. The same. Now I want to go somewhat else to show you something. House. Let me because oh, I would go first mistake. I need to give him 100% capacity and a good feathering on all of them. because I can still see the specs. There you go. Just a quick one. All right. Good to go without now, for example. Let's say if I wanted you here, you see, like room is gonna go somewhere random, and it's gonna think that this is the best place to pick up. But as you can see, it's not the best place. So what you can do is just go on top of the circle and liked room. It's thinking the pics of its matching Perfect is gonna show you the small hand. Just click down to grab this pop and just move to the place where you think it's more suitable. And there you go that it's look miles better then being here. Okay. Just wanted to show you now when come to the club to it's pretty much the same. But what's gonna do it's not gonna heal. It is just basically gonna clone all these pixels from here to there. And because these pics of seats have different information, it won't much with what we want. Okay, The healing Kwan it's getting on Lee the much ink information. So it's trying to blend everything nicely and toe heel actual sport. When the cloning it's taking Oneto one if I bring it here, is gonna take from here. But if I go on the heel, you see is on Lee bringing the exact elements of the area, which is the best toe heel. This place here. Okay, so that's the difference between clone and healing. We will set everything again. The next one is the right eye. Never use it. Because if you're prepared and you're good with your camera and your setting, you won't have any red icing your pictures. However, what it's doing, it's exactly what it's saying. If you click on it, you have Fred I and Pet I it's quite different. But what is doing? It's giving you this nice ellipse with the center in the middle. Where is the right? Well, you have to do It's much the size of the eye and place this exactly in the middle of die and light room. It's gonna do the magic and red eye. It's gonna disappear right as Zoom out and go to another image so I can show you something else. No, we don't eat cars. We need something. Uh huh. Okay. Lets big this one. This is the Grady in future that it's a very powerful thing. The Grady in future. We just dissect that said they the effects if you can see the effect on the top if you hold down command or or control Windows double click is gonna reset if you have already some effect here, or you can just manually go and choose what you want to do. So in this, uh, particular example, I want to go and play with a saturation. Why? Because I want to bring the sky a little Be more. What is the great and future is basically, when you click here on the top and slide down, he's gonna make this lines which the middle it's where is the great in future? Working out and from the top is dark to the bottom is doing like Grady and nice overlay. If you click on the top here, you can see with the right. Actually, where is the affected area? Now we say we're gonna go with situation. So if I bring the temperature down you Brinkley, Toby or I may want to be a more warmer, then I'll bring the exposure down being the contrast up and saturation. This is what light room think is the best. I may want to bring more up clarity and you see how it's changing the sky, because if I switch it off before and after, you already have much better sky and clouds on the top, the same you can do with the water. Or, for example, you can go this way here so we can bring. The whites can bring the shadows. The blocks can bring the clarity. We can give more exposure, and you cannot more like a light. Let's say if we make it lead to be more warmer, it's gonna act like a lighting, like a light leak on top of it. Okay, so they go before and after. So this is basically what the Grady in future do in different photography in different pictures is gonna do a different adjustment, but it's a very powerful, so it's it's a lot of things can happen. Let me just show you one last option. We may want to change color here, so we may want to put more green. In this case. I want to put more like orange to give it warm toe the image. And if you go with the haze back, it's gonna be like a proper lighting leak on the site of the photography. There you go before and after. Okay, gonna set this a swell after the Grady in future, you have the radio future. I love this really a filter, because it's giving you pretty much the same option like the Grady and Filter. But it's all in a circle, and it's very good if you want, for example, to bring attention to certain place of the image. Okay, So let's say I want to concentrate on the actual face here of the lady. What I'm gonna do, I'm gonna click here and go on exposure. So light room is gonna concentrate on exposure. Okay, so I'm gonna drunk you. Just drop and drug he already future, and then you can move it here on the site. You can decide how big you want to be if you want to make it bigger or smaller. Also, you can rotate the ellipse or the circle, and then when you go in your exposure, it's a bring the temperature down early. Toby. You see, you can expose more or you can go down and make it darker. In this case, I want to keep it hazardous, but I want to make darker daily around. So I'm just gonna go on the bottom and de select this invert. And this is what's gonna happen if I go down. He's gonna keep the lady nice exposed. But then it's gonna dark in the area around, so look at the difference before and after. So when you look the image, your attention, it straight away in the lady, in the pigeon in the middle, the surrounding carrier, it's Mawr. Kind of a background know that important? So you're I. It's concentrate directly on the lady, and this is to grab the attention of this image. So this is the radio future. You can do so much with that. You have all these settings again. You have colors if you want to do some colors on the side or do some extra adjustments. But this is all available here for you and finally, very powerful toe. This is the brush, uh, radio brush adjustment brush. Call it whatever you want. It's adjustment brush, but it's giving a soul much options. Let's click on new one. Here and again, Commander Control, Double click on effect to reset. And, for example, we want to give clarity. Let's say, on the face of the lady, this is your brush. It's pretty much the same, like the cloning and healing to you have the size of the brush, feather and the floor here, and also you have density, so it's a little bit more extras. If you want to see when you actually affecting things with the brush here on the bottom, you can see show selected mosque over like so click this and let's click on the face just to show you and let's make it smaller and just paint on the face. You see, this is what is gonna affect these brush. All right, we fight a mover over light. You won't see it, but it's giving you the clarity. So if I d select, let me just zoom so you can see what's happening here. See without with So is giving more clarity. Obviously, this image it's not the perfect example, but just to show you what what is doing. If I bring more the clarity, it's gonna make more obviously contrast in the lines. Then you can pray with Contras. You can play with exposure. Let me zoom out. You can change template to it again. You can give some more saturation to the face if you want the haze making me Toby lighter. In this case, that's putting the shadow. We'll bring him back. We bring the black a little bit down and there you go. You have before and after. So as you can see the two bar, it's have a very fantastic to see inside for a final and a fine retouching. And this is it. This is a two bar. It's huge. I mean, I know it's looked like just 56 tools there, but all of them it's so powerful and they have so much toe off. Aereo is just amazing. It's honestly light room as much. It's look like a simple software with not so much happening like, for example, in four to shop so much options. It's a very powerful and more we work on, and more to experiment and more. You try things more new, a new stuff you're going to discover. So this is when we finish with the developed both in the next model. I'm going to speak with you about the presets. How toe import export, How to create your own presets. And we nearly going to the end of this class. So this is it for now. Have arrest. I'll see you in the next lesson. 9. Presets Explained. Create and Import: we nearly there, guys, and I hope so far you had some fun with and you don't feel really wow, what's happening? So much to learn. Yes, it's a lot to learn, but as much I want to show you everything they'll take like forever. If we go slowly through everything, can I hope the tapes, which I show you already, and the overview of each model and everything is gonna help you to get faster familiar with light room and start using it and start exploring and find your way with application. This few more things left. One of them is the presets, so police sets in light room. It's a really good future. Many presets out there, which you can buy or you can download in a use. You can also create your own presets, and this is what I want to show you, what the presents do and how to create your own or how toe export presets import and start using them because it's nothing wrong. Some people say it's no really cool to use presets because, you know you need to trust your creativity and probably there right. But in my case, I like to use presets sometime because the preset it's already something created in its saving time. So if you know your presets and you know which one work for which type of photography diets giving you a good kick star and it's saving lots of time to go through all these adjustments of your images and then you confined to each one of the image after you used this preset. Because doesn't matter. How good is the presets? They not always work 100% with each image, but at least they giving you a good starting point when you can find tuned images after. So let's jump and have a look. The presets stop and I'll show you a few tricks out there. So I need to open now. The stop and I'm going open the fumes. Triplets open everything. This is your preset stop. As you can see, there's already tons of presets in mind, but light room. It's coming with already built presets inside, so you can start using them or you can browse around. Just. There's so many good presets on marketplaces and there's a certain websites dedicate toe light room presets. So if you want some information, you can leave me common down below in the comments section in the discussions and I will share some links with you. However, let's go back to the presets. So I will take something. Let's see this adjustment to kid. Very cool presets. I don't remember who was the creator of this preset. I have it somewhere. But what they did basically, is they put oh, basic adjustment in presets so you can go quick and see which one. It's work best for you. Let me reset this image. And you see now how to balance out to fix. Look at that is the same. Like to use the out from life room. But then you have the brightness. You have the clarity. You have this color balance the situation low, clarity everything instead of you doing all this on your own and go through all the slides . What the presets do Let me find something which I want to use here, for example. Well, let's see. Color balance field lights. Okay. I want to feel light in this. If I click, he just go here on the let's just reset on the side. You see, everything is reset to normal If I go on the field lights and I pressed, let's a few lights for That's what's happening instead of you going here and I may like that I may like that. Oh, maybe like that. You just press a few lights here and is gone. Then you want to go, Let's say to the low vibrance or let's say you want to put more black, you just press and he's gonna make it. As you can see, it's everything like a very quick snap, vibrance, Whatever you want up, then you go to different preset. Let's say I have a rental preset. There you go. If I press here is gonna change all the slights for you already, and then you can go and make slight adjustments. You may want to go a different temperature here. You may want to put more contrast. You may want to put more clarity or follow and go down with the clarity, however, until you goto this view off the image you spent time when with a preset, you ready to go in a few seconds. I have some of mine, which is pretty much made for product photography. But let's say if I want to use some of them. There you go. I have my melon preset, which I really love. Look at the image. So let's just compare. Let's just go to compare of you before and after. Or if I press the slush button is going to show you see, duh, it's Take what? The reset. OK, look at the tone curve, which I talked to you before. Just look at the tone curve. And when I pressed melon Look what's happening. Okay, that may take you, for example. Let's say what the minutes, 15 minutes to any minutes cuff in our with this one. Click and you change the image straight away. I want to do it like, say, vintage moods. That's too bright for this 10 I have a whiskey sour presets. What will do with this image? Not really good. But then I fight. Go on the cinematic. There you go. I think I'll stick with a melon. Here. Do basically It could be done just in few seconds because some of the images, like we mentioned before in the cooling process. If you have image, which it's five for four stars and they need just a small touch. You may already have presets, So how to create the present? Let this said said the image first and to show you important presets. First of all, let's do important presets create import manage presets. Okay, you can go straight away from here from this plus and press import preset. And this one is gonna open. Obviously your dialogue here And if you know what it's your preset like for example, I keep my presets on external hard drive for 20 thing. So I have light room. I have different presets here, which I can import from here directly to light room. Other option. It's if you go on light room on the top. I think on the window sits on a busy on editor interruption. I'm not really sure, but on Mark, if you go on top in light room and you go to preference, is going to open this dialog and there's a option here. Show all other light room presets. If you click that it will open a new books and we'll show you what it's all the presets. So if you go on develop presets, then it's all your presets in light room then from your hard drive. If you go, let's say here in my life room I can go and just grab one of these and just copy and paste it to the process. However, every time when import presets you need to restart the application toe take effect. Otherwise they don't show straight away. So you just need to restart everything to show the present. So simple is that one option from here. One option from preference. Show other life from presets and you just copy and paste. The pre says there to create your own preset, for example. Okay, let's say I choose the melon. Oh, you do here in this slides in the developed moat everything or you do like through my savings. So when you go in your place button here on the top, create preset is going open this dialog box. Here you can put your name of the presets, so let's put it now. Life through colossi. Sisi, like we did with the cattle, looks in the collections where you want to go, so you may have. Let's say this is if it's a street photography, you may have a street preset, and you may have a folder already, which contains all of your street presets. So in this case is going to go in gp portrait for me that I don't know how I call this one before Like that I have portrait presets. But then I changed in any way different. Different story. And then here you can choose everything quarry want Toby included in this presets. So this is all the developed tools on the site which we use everything. You can check them all. You made the site so I don't want to include the split toning just dis elect anyone include and then just press create. And there you go, the preset. It's here classic cc. So if I go on different one and I go on classic CC or melon, you see nothing changed because they're basically the same pre set. Simple is not know much to say that, but he says it's simple, but it's very powerful toe any save you a lot of time in your work for absolutely fantastic . So the only somewhat people say going use presets obviously don't get addicted to them. Because if you just use the preset in your oh yeah, it's cool when you just leave it, but don't put your touch on the images. It may be a little sloppy, to be honest, so the preset is there to help you, to give it the the base to give you the just foundation of your starting kating process. Let's say this way, because let's put it in the scenario. You have a shooting Kuwaiti, okay? And you did, Let's say, family and friends. So family and friends, it's usually made in a certain area, everything it set up. So you know you're lighting. You know what's happening. Pretty much the images from all the family and friends is gonna be the same exposure. Lighting. Same focus may be just a slight different, but basically 90% 95% gonna be the same. So if you have a preset, which it's fix your exposure in your lighting and you like it when you try on one images on one of the images and you may say you can 50 images of family, friends all you have to do it when you get this image and you like it or you have to do is just select this image. Bruce, the rest 49 images and just press how toe sink and is gonna apply this preset and add it on all these 50 images because they're from same party matters. Okay, let me just show you a quick anyway. So, for example, here we used on the lady this precept which we just create light from classic CC. If I want to apply this preset on all my images, I would just say like them all. And here on the site, you can see the sync button when you press, think light room is gonna ask you where you want to sink. Usually, I never click spot removal or crop in straitened or aspect ratio because you may need tojust images different but everything else it's include. So if I place synchronized light, room is going to start applying the same effect on each another image. Okay, so let's say if I move here, you see, that's how it is before and after applying the presets, then here and what I said before, Not every preset work for every image, for example, for this one doesn't really work. It's look wrong. Here we go. It's applied toe each and one of the images you see before after the car, it was good, like with you before. I don't like with these presets, but then when it's come here and you have the foundation, you can start changing things. On this preset, you can decide different. You say you can go more light, more war. Or you may decide to go one of the different presets and you may decide. Oh, I like this one or I like that one. And I want to go with this one. So this is what I try to tear it preset. It's good starting point if you have many magistrate ID. And if you have already set up your presets, this can save you a lot of time to give you the foundation. And then you just keep going and just the image it's later on. And this is it from this lesson, guys, I'll see you in the next one 10. Export Settings: the last, most important things. It's after you create the catalogues, import your images. Did the cooling process. You finished with your everything your clients say Yep, I'm fine with these images. Can I have a print copy on Can I have online version copy, which it's obviously compressed more smaller so they can share on social media? And this is what we're gonna talk about here. It's exporting and how to export your images, how to set up exporting settings and how to save a different setting so you can use them in future without wasting time, setting up every single time you need to export image. So let's jump to light room and let's look at it. Okay, we stealing the develop moat doesn't matter. Let's go back to the library. Therefore, this images. I didn't set anything. So what's happening now? This is, Let's say, your images client like them, he wants to be exported. It's pretty simple. You can export them one by one, or you can export them all together. But here before I start with exporting, I want to mention about the color calling. Do you remember when I said in the cooling process in this lesson that I have one more step to do when I added my images and this is toe. Give them a colored label, so I know which one. It's for what and what is the priority and very simple. Here, for example, on the bottom of the Jimmy Choo half a small square when you can click and choose the color , or if you select this image, you can give it color directly from here. Okay, that's the second option, and the third option is to use the keys on your keyboard. So starting from six, which is a threat if you press seven, it's yellow. If you press eight, it's green. And if you press nine, it's blue. So what I do in my case, you don't have to follow this exactly, but what I do for me, purple for me, it's all picked images with five stars ready to go for print. Okay, that I walk my way down. If I have four stars, I pressed number nine on the keyboard and I said, Toe blue. Okay, so, for example, this one is four stars. I pressed nine and it's going to blow. This one is three stars. I press eight and it's go to Green and this is how I select them. Then some of the images. If it's a bonus to my client, which it's from me, let's say I like that. But they didn't really say anything about it. I'll just put a seven and is going to go yellow. I will do some retouching on a and I will send it to them. And six, for example. It's the red one. You can choose this for anything. For example, let's say you want this to be only for online version for a screen, not for print. You can mark them with that. I mean, make your way. Make your system. It doesn't matter. In my case, that's what I use with colors. Okay, so this is where I this is where is the final cooling process? Let's put it this way, Okay? Exporting the images. So I want to export all of them. In this case, I'll just select the more click on wall and then shift. Click on the last one and then press here, Export. It will open these dialogues, so let's make it bigger. So you see what's happening you have flight from presets already You have Google. You have perfectly clear. Here you have automatics. This is my plugging so you won't have these things with you. You are You're gonna have the light from presets. I have also my presets, which I created. Let's go to light room presets. For example. Burn full size. JP is going to give you all these option here when you can rename the video the fire setting How you want quality color space? What kind of four months? Image sizing if you want to resize it etcetera, etcetera. I will go in my father and I'm gonna have here. You see, I have three stars. I have four stars, five stars. I stop using them. But before I was exporting by, start sending toe my clients. Now I stopped doing that. Oh, I have. It's a preset, which it's basically 1200 like for a weapon or 1000 pics of model preview. That's what I sent models to clients. And so it's a small resolution easy to load and they can review it very easily. So let's click on that here. Export to specific folder, same folder as original or chose for later use for four presets. I always keep that, because this way light room it's asking me every time where I want to export the images and not just send them somewhere. And I don't see where they go. And I have to search after this while I explore them. So it's a very useful choose folder later. It's very cool things because it's asking you all the time existing files ask what to do Then I have a friend named Custom Setting. As you can see Irene name the image, and when I the name it on the bottom here, you can see it's keeping the image data, but it's hardly think after the writing, which I put model preview row. Okay, you can write anything here, and it will send it. You can change the lower or upper case video. Nothing to talk about. Video here. Then I have J pack format. I keep it. It's in us. LGB quality. 80%. I don't push tow 100 when it's for preview, and then I have a very important here option. Precise toe feet I like to use with and high, but you can use dimensions long edge shortage megapixel. Whatever you decide. OK, if you say go on a long edge, it's going to give you option. When you can put 1000 picks on the long edge and it's gonna resize them exactly them. Or if you want certain with and height, it's up to you. Resolution to 40. Don't enlarge sharpened forced cream. I am poor them for scream because I expect my clients to look them on the laptop computer so they don't need to go on other two options, which it's made paper or glossy paper, then amount standard. All made it out of these things I don't touch. And if you want to include your watermark, you can do that. Then I have already set up water months. But let's say if you click edit watermark, it will open the actual edit window when you can choose to put just the name or you can choose image, and then you can out your watermark, and then you can adjust How big toe be toe feed to feel proportional. Then you can choose who result toe which side Toby, and obviously you can choose the opacity. A swell. Okay, save it and then you can carry it. I do like to have after exporting show infighter or show where it's on your computer. It's fantastic because it straight I open the window and it's showing you what is the images after your down with this Everything said that when you want a safe all these, you just place up here and you can put name. You can choose folder where you want to go, save it and you're done. Let's say I have for my website That's 300 pixel on the long side as you can see the long edge. And it's also for scream full size model coffee. Now you can choose, for example, go to the paper and choose made paper and then choose amount high and then change other things. Quality 200%. Anything you want to change here. All you need to do is just up and create your preset. This way, every time when you have anything to do is just choose the preset and you export. So let's do it really quick. 1000 picks so more they'll preview everything set up export. So you see it's gonna open and ask me what I want to explore them. So I will explore them toe the same folder where I import the images. And when I save my catalogue will create new folder, and I'm gonna put final images preview because this is gonna be for Previ. Okay, 1000 pixel. This is what I want. I'm gonna press export and light room, as you can see here on the top is going to start exporting the files. I know I've put 15 of Denver because it's 1000 pixel. It will export them pretty quick because it's not like the high full resolution 5000 picks or 3000 pick, So there's no much information. So when exported images, in my case, I always give them to show me after exporting and finder. But if you don't wanna wait, you can just go and let's say I go to roll files final images And there you go. This is where they come. And as you can see the name of actual image, it says the image model preview for all this is because that is the text which I put. Let me just stop on the and this is it import with your edits with everything. So I'm going to stop this importing exporting now because we don't need it. I don't need it anyway. But this is how this is called export work guys. So it's pretty easy. Make sure you go through the setting on the side, set up your presets for different exporting. You can do the just choose one image of yours and just go and save different settings. So from now on, every time when you go to export the images, you you won't go through everything again. You just click your preset export new ready to send to a client with a cento print or do whatever you want with images. 11. Final Thoughts and Project: okay, You made it. Everything done. Understood. I hope you enjoy the class and I hope you were a lot of it. Or build your foundation and get you excited. Toe Learn more about light room and more. Experiment with the settings that old options, which the application has to offer. I will post in some 0.1 or two bones videos so we'll let you know in actual comments Below are sent to everyone are a message working. It will be probably two bonus videos, but at the moment of time one. Certainly it's happening. So if you already see the Borders video in the list with videos that minutes published. But if you don't see it, I mean I am working on it. It will be published soon. It's done. I will let you know about the projects. Just want to say quick, download images, guys and just give your best. Do whatever you think is best for this images and just share them Share with everyone. It's that does the whole point of the best things. It's when you share images and when other people see him because you made me something you know to paradise three para vice 6 10 Paradise is better than just your eyes looking this image. So it's always good to share toe a good feedback, even if it's ah, in some point, don't get upset that somebody say something which you didn't expect. Like I'm not saying group. But don't let yourself down. And few people say you need to improve something. That's how it's the learning process. Trust me, I'm still learning every day. So thank you for taking the class one more time. Follow me because I have a few more classes. We're gonna have a Portrait Research Inc. We're gonna have more deep inside light room. Anything in there touching combined with for the shop. There's a few classes coming, which it's really exciting. So, yeah, follow me and stay in touch. Any questions? Just ask. There's never stupid question. I will answer pretty much straight away. Thank you very much and enjoy your light from experience.
