Hello people, welcome to this video! Let’s see together how to useAdobePhotoshop Lightroom CCquickly and easily!Leave us comments to improve our future guides!This software is one of the very best ones to manage and edit photos and pictures. Just likePhotoshop CC, you can edit and manipulate photos, but the tools and the features in Lightroom are more suitable to adjust photos rather than editing them completely. Let’s see how to start. Theworkspaceis composed by different parts: on the extreme left, you have some panels used to select your photos or check any preview. On the centre, the mainphoto preview, where you do apply any tool to edit and adjust pictures. On the extreme right you have all tools and features to edit your photos. These do depend on the workspace selected above, fromLibrarytoWeb. If you don’t see those, make sure to click on the vacant space on top. At the very bottom, you have aquick navigator, used to pick the photo you need. Open it by hovering or clicking on the vacant space at the bottom. Close it clicking on thedown arrow. First of all, you need toimportyour photos. InLibrary section, go toImport…in the bottom left corner. Select the folder that collects your photos on the left, and its files will be shown on the centre.Lightroom can import justphotos and videos, so just those will be listed. Mind that you can’t edit videos, unless their first frame. To import, go to theImport buttonin the bottom right corner. Just all checked files will be added inside Lightroom. UseCheckandUncheck Allto select your files more easily. On top, you can choose how to handle the import operation.Addadds files in the Lightroom catalog, whileCopyandMovedo copy or move the checked files in your Lightroom catalog and in your computer folder set on the right. All photos imported are collected inside a Lightroom catalog calledAllPhotographs, included in theCatalog sectionon the left. If you need to import other photos, go again toImport…In case you want toremovephotos, right-click on one and go toRemove Photo…. You can choose to remove it from theLightroom catalogonly or from your computer. TheLibrary workspaceis used to manage and organize your catalog collections. On the left you find all yourcatalogsandcomputer foldersyou imported from; on the centre apreviewof all photos imported, ordered by number, and, on the right, some quick adjustment tools and any photo metadata. Lightroom has different previews for your photos.Grid Viewis the basic one, which shows a basic overview of your photos. ThroughThumbnailson the right, you can set the dimension of the photo thumbnails.Loupe Viewshows just one photo per time. Use your mouse wheel to scroll, or select from thequicknavigatorat the bottom. Hover the picture and use your mouse wheel tozoom, and click and drag topan.Compare Viewshows two photos next to each other. Select from the navigator to change comparison. TheLibrary sectionis also useful to apply quick simple adjustments. For example, while inGrid View, you can fastrotatephotos using thearrowsin the photo corners. On the right, inQuick Develop, you can adjust settings for lightness and clarity. Click on theblack arrowson the right to show all suboptions. Use theleftand theright arrowsto decrease or increase each value. Edited photos will show aplus and minus iconin a corner while inGrid View. Very important is theHistogramabove. Three primary colors are shown: Red, Green and Blue. If those overlap, the resulted secondary color is shown. And, where all colors do overlap, thewhite colorappears. Plus,the more a color isintense, the more it appears on the right of the histogram.For example, a picture with a deep red will show more red on the right.The height of a colorpeak is determined by the number of pixels that has such color.So a picture that is totally in red will have a high peak in red. If you need to edit photos into deep, switch to theDevelop workspace. Select from thequick navigatorthe picture you need to adjust. On the left you have some options:Presetshas some ready-made filters that change the appearance of your photo. Hover one and check the final appearance throughNavigatoron top. Click on the filter to apply it on the photo. UseCTRL+Zto undo.Snapshotssaves a snapshot taken while your photo is being edited. Just click on theplusto create one. The snapshot saved looks like exactly what you see on the preview. Choose a snapshot to open it on your workspace anytime.Historylists all your latest actions made. So that you can go backwards if you have mistaked. On top, you have the mainNavigator. This is used to check which part of the picture you are seeing, especially if you zoom in. On the right, below the colorHistogramseen, you have advanced tools to edit your photo into deep. Before doing so,save a snapshot of your originalphoto, so that, you can come back to it whenever you need. First of all, you may need to cut from the picture all parts you don’t like. You can do so by using theCrop Overlay tool. When you enable it, agridappears on the photo. All that is included inside such will be saved. Simply drag thenodeson the corners toscaleit.Hold Shift downto keep the aspect ratio while scaling. Drag from outside torotatethe grid. When you finish, simply click onDonebelow. UseEscapeto undo. In case you need toflipthe image, just go toPhotoand then toFlip HorizontalorVertical. Then, you may need to adjustLightness,ContrastandColors. All these are insideBasic. First of all choose to keep colors or make aBlack and Whiteeffectselecting underTreatment. UseTempandTintto adjust colors. You can drag on the bar, use your mouse wheel, drag from the numbers, or click inside to type the precise value you need.Color neutrality is reached when allthe three colors in the Histogram are well overlapped. Then setExposureandContrast. Moreover, if you want to correct just the lightest parts of the photo, useHighlights. To correct the darkest parts, useShadows. If you want to add or remove white, useWhitesandBlacks. Always observe the Histogram above. If you want to make the photo vivacious, useVibranceandSaturation. If the photo is too blurry, increaseClarity. If theBasic sectionis not enough, you can use more powerful tools more at the bottom. UseTone Curveto adjust whiter and darker parts of the photo carefully. InSplit Toning, you can change thecolor(Hue) and itsintensity(Saturation) for both highlights and shadows.Balancesets how these two have to interact.HSLis the same asSplit Toning, with the difference that here you can act on each single color, setting thecolor(Hue) theintensity(Saturation) and alsolightness(Luminance). To correctblurandnoise, use the tools insideDetail section, observing the small close view above. You can add basic effects through the tools insideEffects, addingVignetteandGrain. You can turn on and off each section effects clicking on the button in the top left corner.
