Organize, manage and back up essential Lightroom Classic files with Rob Sylvan

Beyond your photos, there are a number of key files you need to be aware of, keep under control, and back up.

To help! My Lightroom is a mess, with Daniel Gregory

Have you had a big mess of Lightroom goo? I wish you even knew where to start cleaning so you can think about being organized. In this session, you’ll learn how to quickly and easily clean up your catalog and prepare to be organized in the future. Unlike how to get organized, here’s how to fix when you haven’t started getting organized.

Long-term maintenance of the Lightroom catalog, with Ben Wilmore

After you’ve used Lightroom for a while, it’s best to take steps to make sure Lightroom stays nimble and doesn’t bloat your hard drive. A few simple steps with a dash of automation will make all the difference.

Start-to-finish workflow, with Nicole Young

Watch Nicole walk through the process of importing, editing, and exporting two complete photo shoots in Lightroom Classic. You’ll see the entire process, from importing the photos, culling (selection) of the images, processing them in the Develop module, and exporting them for print, web, and collage.

Ingesting is no joke, with Sean McCormack

Maximize your image management right from the start. Importing your photos into Lightroom is the start of your editing journey, but you can make the journey much smoother with the right setup in the import module. Apply metadata, keywords, or even presets, and using a good file naming system can make your masterpieces easier to find and share. For money or for fun.

Importing isn’t the only way to get photos, so we’ll look at other ways to get files or trigger the import in a different way. Finally, we’ll look at ways to partially edit your photos, so that you end up with well-named, keyword-ready files that are almost ready for export.

Find Any Photo, with Tim Gray

In this course, Tim Gray will share tips and tricks for finding a photo based on the details you remember about the image you are looking for. You’ll learn how to do a quick keyword search, filter photos only by your favorites, search by metadata, and more. In short, after this course, you will be able to find photos based on just about any information you can remember in a photo!
