Lightroom Library Module Advanced Operations-WRK122 (LR3)

Series Overview:

Amateur and professional photographers alike will tell you that Adobe's Photoshop Lightroom is their go-to application for image management, Adobe Camera Raw based editing, workflow logistics, and bulk exports. Any photographer that has a significant volume of images to cull through appreciates Lightroom's sorting and cataloging features. Working photographers with multiple client demands to be met, utilize Lightroom to smooth out their workflow and make sure that edited results get delivered correctly. While Lightroom offers many intuitive features and simplistic operation, to truly taps its full potential, you must bring your notion of organization and understand the subtle mechanics of its non-destructive editing philosophy.


In this class, the third (3rd) in our seven (7) course Lightroom series, Lightroom Library Module Advanced Operations, we explore some of the lesser known, yet more powerful features that the Lightroom Library Module has to offer. For those who have some Library Module experience or have taken our Lightroom Library Module class, this class go much deeper into features that can significantly improve your workflow, solve difficult catalog issues and add more tools to your Library Module arsenal.

Course Contents:

This class starts off looking at the Filter Bar and Toolbar. Even though we looked at these toolsets in the last class, we are going to continue our exploration here into the more advanced functions and features that are available. Additional tools and techniques remain, for us to explore, that will significantly improve your efficiency in searching and sorting images and folders.

The class continues by learning some more viewing options that are available in the Library Module. These options will allow you to inspect your images in different ways, build layouts that help in considering pictures for composite pieces, as well as see information overlays in both the Loupe and the Grid view modes. We explore options for working with images while they are offline or for when you wish to travel with a portion of your catalog. We will contrast and compare various methods for remote and subset editing of images. By the time you finish with this course, you should know the Lightroom Library Module inside and out and be able to use Lightroom for advanced catalog management with ease.

Throughout the course, we will use sample images and libraries to help underscore the topics and examples presented in class. A computer with the correct software installed, while not necessary, will provide helpful reinforcement of the topics presented.

Course Prerequisites:

Participants enrolling in this class should have the following knowledge / experiences prior to attending this class:

  • General operating system knowledge as outlined below

  • WRK110 (LR01) – Lightroom Getting Started

  • WRK120 (LR02) – Lightroom Library Module

General Prerequisites:

· Computer (with power supply)

· Lightroom (fully installed and ready)

· Familiar with computer basics (file management)

You will want to bring a laptop or computer to class if you wish to follow along using the exercise files that will be handed out. While most of the concepts and features demonstrated will be backward compatible with older versions of Lightroom, the instructor will be using the most recent version of the application (Lightroom Classic CC). If you have recently subscribed to Adobe's Creative Cloud service, you will want to make sure that you have correctly installed the software locally and confirm its successful startup and operation before coming to class.

Many software complications, such as slow performance and lagging screen refreshes, are due to computer systems that are under-resourced. Continued satisfactory use of the software title covered in this course will be dependent upon your computer's configuration; please refer to the vendor's documentation to ensure that your system is adequately provisioned.

Last, but not least, you should ensure that you are familiar with the operation of your computer, its filing system and the shortcut keys and functions that it offers. A large percentage of the support issues that come up during class is rooted in the user not having knowledge of or a base level understanding of the operating system they are using on their computer. Most of today's mainstream software applications, provide features and functions based on capabilities provided by that computer's operating system. Failure to understand operating system provided functionality can lead to difficulty in understanding capabilities within the software we are teaching in class. Base level knowledge of your computer's filing system, storage locations, and operational shortcuts will go a long way towards enhancing your experience in this course and with your computer system overall.
