Matt introduces the class and goes over what we'll cover.
The most important thing when you start using Lightroom is where to put your photos. You'll learn how to get started the right way, with a folder structure that can grow with you.
Once you come back from a photo shoot, you'll want to get moving quickly and get your photos in to Lightroom.
Chances are that you've got photos taken before you started using Lightroom and you want to get them in your photo library as well.
One of the main advantages of Lightroom over other programs is sorting and organizing your photos. In this lesson you'll find out the easiest ways to do that.
Once you've found your favorites, Matt shows you how to use Collections (kinda like Albums) to organize them so they're just one click away.
You'll love the power of the Basic panel for editing your photos. There's a ton of different things we can do, but the Basic panel still remains one of the most useful.
Once you've done some global edits, you can hone in and do selective edits with Lightroom's tools as well.
Matt finishes up the Develop module by going through some of the more advanced (but not that advanced) editing tools that you may come across.
Whether it\'s simply saving a JPEG or sharing your photos online via email, Facebook or Flickr, Lightroom has built-in ways to do this automatically for you.
It's all about the print. Between the photo books and the Print module, you'll learn how you can get great prints that look just like they do on your screen.
