How to edit lightroom In this post, I’m going to show you how to edit Lightroom CC.The first step is to import the raw files that we will use in this training video.To import the files.You can click on this Plus icon then click on Browse. I’m going to load these files into Lightroom.you can hold Shift and click on the first and last photo to select them all, then click on the review for the import button.In the review import window, make sure that all files are selected.The photos should have this blue circle with a white checkmark.Also, the “Add to album” option, should be set to “None.”We will discuss Albums in a moment.Then, press the blue button.The photos will be imported into Lightroom, and you will see them in the Filmstrip on the bottom part of the application frame.Also, these files are currently being uploaded to the cloud.So, you could also edit them on your LightroomMobile App, and in Lightroom Web.Before we go any further, I would like to explain to you, how these files are organized inside by Lightroom.Click on the “My Photos” icon.This panel added a tab.Lightroom organizes photos using albums and folders.Currently, I have four albums.Including one that has all my photos shot with the Lightroom Mobile app.I don&t have any folders yet, butI&m going to explain what they are ina moment.First, let’s create a new album where we will keep the photos for this training video.Click on this plus icon.Then select “Create Album.”Name this album “Lightroom CC Training.”Check this box to include any selected photos.In this case, I only have one photo selected.Click on “Create,” and Lightroom will create the new album and include the selected photo.Then you can simply select and drag the other photos into the Lightroom CC Trainingalbum.When you see a blue highlight, you can release and those photos will be added into that album.An Album is a collection of Photos, and it cannot contain other albums.Lightroom CC also has folders.I don’t have any yet, so I will make one now.Click on the plus icon, and select “Create Folder.”I’m going to name this folder, “Vacation.”Tap on the “Create” button.You can now use this folder to organize your albums by simply dragging albums into it.For example, you can drag the England, Mexico City, and Sydney albums into it.Now I have a folder called “Vacation,” which contains three albums inside of it.You cannot add an album inside of another album, and you cannot add a photo into folders without an album.However, you can add a folder inside of a folder.If I create a new folder and name it 2017, representing the year where I took those vacations, Then click on create you can drag the 2017 folder into the vacation folder.Then I can drag the England album into it.Because I took that vacation in 2017.As you can see you can have multiple nested folders inside of a single folder.You can drag a folder out, and it will no longer be a nested folder.And you can drag albums out of folders.You can delete a folder, by right-clicking on it and selecting “Delete that we have images to work with let’s look at the Lightroom CC interface.You’ve seen the import button and the “My Photo” panel that contains all the photos, albums, and folders.You’ve seen the Filmstrip.Below the Filmstrip, you have different options for viewing the photos in it.To select a view, you can click on its corresponding icon, or use a keyboard shortcut.When you hover over a button, Lightroom CC gives you a tooltip displaying its name and the keyboard shortcut if it has one.The first view is the Photo Grid, then you have Square Grid, and the Detail Grid which is the default.You can sort the images, by capture date, import date, modified date, and star rating.You can reverse the order of the sort by selecting this option.You can also flag your photos.This Let’s Lightroom knows which photos you like and which photos you want to reject.The Z key flags a photo as picked, and the X key flags a photo as rejected.You can also give your images a star rating from 0 to 5.You can use a keyboard shortcut to assign a star rating.Simply press a number key between 0 and 5.So, if I press one on the keyboard – that gives this photo a one-star rating and doing so displays overlay on the screen.I can press 5 on the keyboard to give this photo 5 stars.On the bottom right-hand side of the application frame, we have different zoom levels.Fit fits the image on the screen.So Lightroom will zoom out to reveal the entire image.No matter how large it is.Fill, fills the image on the screen by its width.If your photo is too tall, you will have to pan up and down to see those areas.One to one shows us a 100% view of the image.The actual size.This is the view that you want to work in when you make adjustments in the Detail panel.And I’ll explain why, when we discuss the Detail panel.Then we have the “Hide Filmstrip” button; you can click on it to hide it or you could press the / key to enable or disable the filmstrip.That is the same key as the question mark.The show's original icon is the last on the list.If you tap on this icon, you will disable all adjustments, and you will see the original version of the photo.The Info icon reveals information about your photo.

For example, this photo was shot with a mobile device using the Lightroom Mobile camera, and GPS was enabled.So, you can see exactly where this photo was taken.You can also add keywords or tags to your photo.Keywords help you organize your images.In the top center, you have the search bar, and this is a smart search bar that looks through the visual contents of your photo.I have not tagged or added any keywords to the photos that I have uploaded to Lightroom cc.But if I type a keyword search, such as “cat.”Lightroom CC will return photos that it thinks are of cats.Lightroom CC does an excellent job finding photos that match my query, but it is not100% accurate.It also brought in a photo of a squirrel.But as you can see Lightroom analyzes the contents of the image, so even if you don&tadd any keywords to your photos you can use the search to find the images that you&relooking for.Also, keep in mind that Lightroom searches through the album or folder that you have selected.Notice that as I click on the different albums, the label in the search bar changes.You can refine your search by taping on this icon.You can refine it by, star ratings, flags, photos or video, keywords, cameras used, these are the different types of cameras that I&ve used to shoot the photos that have been uploadedLightroom.And the locations of where my photos were shot.On the top right-hand side, you have a share button.This is how you would save your image as a jpg after you adjust it.We will discuss exporting photos later in this training video.The cloud icon shows you your cloud storage.And the different ways that you can connect into Lightroom CC.You can click on these links to download the mobile apps or to login to Lightroom Web.By clicking on this link, the browser opens my Lightroom CC web account.You can see the folders we created and the photos we imported.If we had made an adjustment, we would also see them applied to the photos here.Any adjustments that we applied from the web app will also be reflected in the desktopapp.I’m going to close the browser and go back into the Lightroom CC desktop app.Notice that the changes I made in the Lightroom CC web app are reflected in the LightroomCC desktop app.Finally, on the far right-hand side, you have the editing tools.This is where you will spend most of the time in this training video.Edit PhotosLet’s now look at how to develop photos in Lightroom CCOpen the Venice Image, by going into “My Photos” and open the Lightroom CC Trainingalbum.Inside of this album, you will see the photos that we imported.Select the Venice photo.To have more room to work with, I’m going to disable the refine search options.And collapse the folders and albums panel by tapping on the “My Photos” button.We’re going to start by making tonal and color adjustments.You can make these changes through the Edit panel.You can access the Edit panel by tapping on the first icon on the list.And it will reveal the options available to you to develop your photo.Editing in Lightroom CC is straightforward.You can just go down this list and make the changes that your image needs.It is not required for you to go down the list in order.You can start from the bottom and work your way up if you wish, or you can start anywhere you like.However, in my opinion, it makes a lot more sense to start on top and work your way down.And that is what we will do in this training video.Open the Light panel, by tapping on it.The “Light” panel will give you control over how much light there is in your photo.In other words, it gives you control of the luminance values.How dark or how bright the tones appear in this image.The six sliders in this panel control different aspects of luminance.The best thing about Lightroom CC is that you do not have to memorize what each of these sliders does.You can simply hover over any of the labels of each slider, and Lightroom CC will display animation and a description of what the slider does.In this case, the Exposure controls the brightness of your photo.To change the brightness, you can simply drag the slider left or right.All the sliders in Lightroom CC work the same.Dragging to the left reduces.And Dragging to the right increases.In the case of the Exposure slider, dragging to the left decreases the light in the photo.Making it darker.Dragging to the right increases the light in the photo.Making it brighter.You could also adjust your photo by ending a numerical value in the input box, or by activating the input box and using the up and down arrows in the keyboard to increase or decrease the value.Holding Shift allows you to change the values in increments of 10.You could also hover over a slider and use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to adjust it.by default, when you hover over a slider and tap on the arrow keys, you move in increments of 5.To move in increments of one, hold the Alt key.That’s an option on the Mac.To move in increments of 10, hold the shift key.This technique is great for when you are on a plane or train, and you are editing photos, and you can’t use your Wacom tablet or mouse to be precise.With the exception of Contrast, by holding Alt/Option on the Mac, all the sliders in this panel show you an overlay indicating when you clip the image.That means that the overlays show you when areas become pure white or pure black and lose all detail.To reset the slider to default, you can double click on the circle or hover over the adjustment label and double click on it.If you adjust multiple sliders, and you would like to reset the entire panel, then hold at the option on the mac.And notice how all the panel labels have now become reset buttons.You can just click on “reset lighting,” and all sliders in this panel are set to default.You may be used to working with the Histogram to edit your photos; you can enable it in Lightroom CC by going into the three dots icon, and selecting “ShowHistogram.You can open a preset panel category.And hover over the different presets to see how they affect the photo on the right-hand side, you can see how the sliders on the refine the preset by adjusting the sliders in the Light and Color panels.You can click on the three dots in the preset panel.And select “create preset” to make a preset out of the current look of the image.In other words, Lightroom will remember the position of the sliders.You can give your preset a name, and once you click save, it will be placed under “UserPresets.”Now that we’ve completed editing our image, I’m going to show you how to export it as a JPG or take it into Photoshop.You can click on this Export icon here.And then select Save To.This brings up the Save window, and you can select the file type.You have the options of JPG and Original plus settings.A Location.And select the size.By default, it’s set to Small.You can set it to Full Size, which is the actual size of the image.Or you can do a custom size.You can enter a pixel dimension for the longest size, and click on save and a JPG file will be saved into your computer.You could also take this photo into Photoshop by going into File, Edit in Photoshop.And this is going to edit the image inside of Photoshop.Now Lightroom needs to stay open while you make your edits in Photoshop to allow your edits to transfer back into Lightroom CC.And for that to happen you have to close your photo in Photoshop.Now I don’t want to take my image into Photoshop, so I’m just going to OK.It will open the photo in Photoshop, but I’m going to come back into Lightroom.And I want to show you one other thing.That you can share to Facebook.The first time that you try to do this, you will have to enter your Facebook credentials, but you can enter a description in this box, and select an Album where you want the photo to be shared.And then click on the Share button to share this photo onto Facebook.So those are the exporting options that you have in Lightroom CC.And that’s it for this beginner's training course of LightroomCC.
