To give you a better understanding of how much Lightroom can help you with the work-flow, I'd like to take you quickly through an end-to-end demo of how I normally work with the program after we shoot. Now you probably going to see a few things you don't understand along the way, but that's okay. We are going to come back and walk through each and every step so you can see for yourselves how simple yet powerful Lightroom is. Sit back, relax, and let's get started.
Now as you can see I have got Lightroom set up to auto-detect when I put a card in the reader and open up the Import dialog box. The Import dialog box on Lightroom is great because it's sticky, it remembers the information I put in last time and allows me just to make a few minor changes and create some presets and I am good to go. If I come in here I can make a decision on whether I want to copy photos to a new location and import, which I do. Ask me where I want to copy my images to which is my standard library images folder. I do want them in one folder so I'll leave it there. I do want to put them in a sub-folder that reflects my naming convention. So I will call these by the year, month, date, the subject and a little more detail.
So let's put down 20070622, Digital Railroad initials and Alaska bears. Now I don't want to re-import any suspected duplicates, though I know I don't have these barriers anywhere else in mine, but I do want to check this next box, makes it kind of nice and it ejects the card after importing all the images. Here is one of the coolest features about Lightroom. As I am importing into my Image Library, it will automatically backup to another drive. So I am importing actually into two drives at once, safety and numbers.
Moving on down, I want my naming convention to reflect not only when I shot it, but who I shot it for and what I shot? So if you look back up at my folder naming I am just going to repeat the same thing down here. I have setup a preset which I will show you how to do in the later lesson, called 2007_DRR Alaska, that way all I have to do is come in and put in the same thing I put in my folder. So actually let me go back up here, click Copy and just paste this in here. My Start Number is 1, my Develop Settings, well, I am going to be doing my developing later on in the develop module, so I'll leave this alone.
I do want to come down here though and take advantage of the metadata templates. You will notice I have three setup. Well, this one is for digital railroad because anything I shoot while I am in one of their trips, I shared the copyright with.
So choose that one, any applicable keywords that will be global, that will apply to all of them, like Alaska, bears, Grizzly, Nature, things like that. I can put in a lot of those now, it will apply to all photos or I can wait until later on when I am processing them to add the individual emotional keywords.
Well, that's it, I am good to go. All I have to do is now is click Import and the images start showing up in my library. You will notice the thumbnail start showing up in the canvas in the middle, you have got a progress bar up in the upper left-hand corner that gives you a visual idea how the import is progressing, and a new folder shows up over here in the Folder Panel where there are 28 images in it.
