Course Lessons:

Lesson 1: Introduction (Duration 01:10)

Join Matt for a quick introduction to the material that will be covered in this class.

Lesson 2: Slideshows - Creating a Quick Slideshow (Duration 02:15)

Starting with a collection of photos is a great way to get started with creating a slideshow. The pre-packaged templates in the Template Browser provide a really fast way to create a slideshow with a single click.

Lesson 3: Slideshows - Customizing your slideshow (Duration 06:17)

The templates also make for a convenient starting point for customizing your slideshow the way you want it to look.

Lesson 4: Slideshows - Adding opening and closing slides (Duration 04:33)

The Titles panel is where you'll find the tools to add a starting and ending slide to your slideshow. Learn how to add text or a graphic to your title slides.

Lesson 5: Slideshows - Adding Music (Duration 03:41)

Music can add real emotional impact to your slideshow. Matt shows you how to synchronize a song file to your slideshow and tweak the transition times of your slides to make it all flow together.

Lesson 6: Slideshows - Saving Your Slideshow as a Video (Duration 01:51)

While you can play a slideshow from within Lightroom that may not always be practical for your needs. Exporting your slideshow as a video saves the entire show, music, transitions and all, in a convenient MP4 file format.

Lesson 7: Slideshows - Emailing a Slideshow as a PDF (Duration 02:02)

Exporting a slideshow as a PDF is another option that can come in handy when you don't need to include music or transitions, but want to deliver your slideshow in a compact package.

Lesson 8: Slideshows - Showing Slideshows with Dual Monitors (Duration 01:29)

If you are using a computer with 2 monitors, you can configure Lightroom to run the slideshow on the second monitor.

Lesson 9: Web - Creating a Basic Web Gallery (Duration 03:17)

Similar to the slideshow, you can enter the Web module with a collection of photos, choose a template from the Template Browser, and have a web gallery ready to go to the Web.

Lesson 10: Web - Customizing your Web Galleries (Duration 05:14)

The templates also make for a convenient starting point for customizing your web gallery the way you want it to look.

Lesson 11: Web - Add some spice with Flash Galleries (Duration 02:05)

There are 2 basic types of web galleries in Lightroom, one is HTML and the other is Flash. Flash galleries are more fun and interactive, but require the Flash plugin to be viewed, and are not supported on all devices. HTML galleries are simple, but work in any web browser.

Lesson 12: Watermarking (Duration 02:34)

The Output Settings panel is where you can access the Watermark Editor, which will allow you to add a watermark to all the photos heading to your website.

Lesson 13: Web - Getting your Galleries Online (Duration 02:01)

Once you've finalized the layout of your gallery it is time to upload it to the web. You can upload directly from Lightroom if you know the username/password information for your web server, or you can export the gallery to a folder on your desktop and hand off all the files to the person in charge of your website.
