Tubbirubi tubbirubi Adobe Lightroom 10 Lightroom Tips to Get Started learn to edit with ligthromm Hello everyone and welcome to a new video from RunbenGuo yess, today ten tips basics to start editing photos with ligthroom not only editing but also organization because one of the keys to ligthroom is that we allows in a very easy way to order filter photographs then into the world of to digital photography where we arrive home with hundreds of thousands of photographs of events weddings timelapses or whatever be we need a tool that with a couple of clicks we can have everything alright organized and then we can even process photos by synchronizing all all or synchronizing a very big because they are very similar and not we have to edit one by one so ligthroom a very tool powerful plus ligthroom has a flow non-destructive work what does this mean then what is it different from photoshop because in photoshop when we edit the photograph for example we apply a blur that blur remains recorded to the original file to no be that we turn the photograph into smart object then changes but If we apply things to the photography remain recorded and not we can go back however in lightroom all the steps we are following are they are recorded and we can go back is a non-destructive flow so it's a very very powerful tool and if you want delve into these topics and all the tools that lightroom offers then you can take a look at my course full adobe lightroom course supercomplete with almost five hours of material divided into 39 episodes in the that I treat everything that lightroom offers all things from import organize until process retouch sync spread web galleries presentations albums all but today we are going to see the ten basic things you need to start working with lightroom so let's do it and here we are lightroom let's see the basics what you need to know to edit in lightroom 10 basic things so there are a lot of things that don't I can go in detail because this video it would be endless so i will try do what succinct short summarized but that you can start editing with lightroom then very briefly this is what you you will find but it is none photography that is, we are in the library module and up here as we can see we have the modules major library reveal map etc.
Etc. etc. that this in the course as he went into detail in each one but well the main one is library is the place where we store all our things all our photographs in this case but a typical library because it is where we store all our books then is the first place where we have to pass and if we want import new photos as it is the place we have to be first and then have them stored then in the library down here we have the option to import so let's go to the first point which is to import then we have two options to import the photographs from a sd card because the we just made and we have them on camera or add them to lightroom from the computer first is from the sd card then look down here I have the card inserted sd into the sd card reader and here it I have DCIM is where all the photographs which seem to me in gray and it does not let me matter it is because I have already imported does not matter so no have duplicates but here look at these that I have done new session that I went out the other day to do some pictures around here very close because there were some very interesting clouds interesting because let me import them are then selected for select the photographs that we want very simple we can directly select all notice they have a tick here then all selected by default with the option here went down to select all or deselect and go selected here it is I want it I want it I want it we want if we want to see them big to see what exactly do we want the ones that have looked good on us then we can select the one we want the What do we want to see? We give the e then we are seeing here look at mode magnifying glass view of magnifying glass and if we give the g What is the mode down here? grid view then we go back to the grid view then for example It is here and maybe it is I want to know if i like it or not so I hit the e now I hit the g again then i'm selecting then this It is very simple but good more or less so that you give you an idea we are selecting the ones that we want So notice that we have started from left to right that is, we start here on the left selecting where they are the photographs we want to import and here we select specifically the photographs we want and here at right let's add some little things more when importing but before when we have the photographs we want selected we have to select here option of how we want the import copy them as dng copy them simply and here it does not let us move nor add so what is this copy as dng means that the raw format that let's have our camera for example if it is arw which is the sony then we can copy them to dng arw nef and all these are the owners of each brand that is each mark has its raw file but dng is open source then dng has many advantages do not lose anything quality occupies less then normally the one recommended but you already choose if you want to copy just or copy as dng then when I copy them to a new one location on our hard drive the convert to dng if we don't want to convert them We put how to copy and if we have not done raw photographs simply in jpg then then we can't directly copy as dng we will simply copy y then they will be copied to the hard drive and this now if we had those pictures already directly on the hard drive but not we got stuck in lightroom then we would have to select the option add that is, we have them on the disk hard but we want the add to lightroom catalog lightroom catalog to explain it so very very succinctly it is like directly a catalog a magazine for example from a store where we have all the products you have to stores in a catalog but not the products themselves they are just references then lightroom function thus creates a catalog in the that we have references of the photos originals that are on disk hard but not duplicated now but in this process we are in we want you to copy them as dng because we have them raw in the sony format So what are you going to copy them to computer because I don't have them still on the computer and then adds them to lightroom so that we have them in the lightroom catalog and we can work about her and others up here look we have in file management create smart previews this what This means that if we are going to save the photographs on an external hard drive but that this external hard drive will not always be plugged in because maybe we will be on a trip we're going to take the laptop and we will work with the etc.
So if we activate this option previews are created on the that we can work we can even export photos to networks social etc. because it will a tiny preview but enough of enough quality if not we activate it then we will have some previews that are the typical to see the thumbnails etc. but they don't have quality enough to export or to work on them and after and if we want to add to collection that this now we will see a a little later what are the collections and then make a second copy in a hard disk part for example then file name well this is a not very intuitive in case we want to change file name to put a man to all this group of photographs after apply during import I am very interesting for example metadata we can create a new metadata and here that we add all our information for example our web situation our name a lot of things a lot of metadata that can be included in photos automatically to that later when we export we don't have to manually add all the information so that it is known that the photograph of our then all this of metadata as I also explain in the course what are all this that I am going to explain explain here's how far above so you get an idea and then here the important thing in destination then where we want you to save all the photos so here we directly have the disks hard of our computers I right now have these are four hard drives and in sd card So what I usually do for example is importing them to the hard disk that have with space and fast for example this ssd of a tera and I tell him then in the pictures folder but for what are not imported into the root folder and mix photography with plenty I want a subfolder to be imported is say I select the folder where I want pictures to be recorded photographs but also here in this option up in subfolder so I want that create a folder called clouds cool at home for example not then notice that here now appears as gray name of the new folder to be create and that's it, directly we have to give it let's import let's give import and look that up here puts the process process bar is copying and importing photographs and now there are some bars because they are turning them is converting it to dng and then this is what will appear to you here we are in the library module now let's go to the second point that are folders and collect then look here at the left in this module let's put it like this little boy we have a folder here then The folder is as is the location real on the hard disk where the Photography then we go to the hard drive in the We have saved them, what is it? this and then look here in the folder pictures here we have cool clouds in House so if we want to go to the exact location on the hard drive of this photograph simply right button we see here show in finder at apple and here we have the hard drive folder where are these pictures then this is the actual location but can be created in lightroom a very powerful thing that they are the collections that is as if let's say playlists this good the explanation has to be a little longer but literally that's it playlist then in the folders we have the real photographs but then we can create here collections for example with these photography with the water there are only three water here then I'm going to go down here where it says collections I go to more I say create collection and put puddle at home I give him to create then down here an album has been created that called puddle at home and only one has been included photograph that is the one I had selected then I want to include more then nothing happens I go to the folder where I have all the cloud photographs cool at home so this and this are which I also want to include because are made of water so to select the two I just click now I press shift and I click on the other, both are selected And now I just spike and drag and I take them to this collection then look that now I have this collection with photographs of water and they are not duplicates the photographs that is, no, no there are two photographs of each but are the original photographs in the folder and now like this list of playback and then I can delete them for example I can click and delete it but it has not been deleted from the original folder but here are the three photographs of water very well because that is point 2 we go to point 3 which is to classify and score this that this this that is this is a very powerful tool in lightroom because look, let's go here Valmayor so the other day I was doing all these photographs here in Valmayor there were a few, what if there is a few that I don't want or there are a lot of photographs that do not I want this is where lightroom is very powerful because we usually come with hundreds of photographs a lot photography yes we have to erase by hand one by one is a mess so look for by example I'm here and I say can I want see them big to see them in big so i'll give the view what is vita lupa do you remember that this view here seen through a magnifying glass hey then save it for example I don't like this I don't like it very much so we have various ways of classifying photography j look down here we have a little flag that is to indicate it as selected, which is the letter p then look at it the flag appears or we can give it to u to remove remove the indicator or We can give you the x to say that it is a rejected then we tell her that they are not we like then maybe I I can go looking around here and I say look at this I do not like either x neither good a the best is like this then I give then I put the little flag of p or we can also use these little stars little stars down here by I like this example but not much then I'm going to give it three stars that is giving the 3 I press three then 3 stars appear here then maybe this is also I like that a 3 and I'm going to give it a selected p and this also three yp of selected that at the better then I go here and say go look I like this a lot how it turned out So I'll give it five to this 5, 5, 5, 5 so I give 5 stars to each one and also we have another way to classify which is by colors that if it appears to us It would have to be like around here we can go here to this little arrow down here look we click and put here color label then here they appear different colors that we can give as photographs I use this for example for panoramas or for timelapses then for example these photographs that are of a panoramic for have them quickly identified Well I can give the green label and it's green and it's green or can I do it with the fixed keys 1 2 3 4 5 are the stars the following numbers are the colors for example the 6 is red the 7 is yellow 8 is green so I can go giving eight to these then look now I already have these from here below in green and I have them very quickly identified as a panorama as a group of photographs that go together and also has a 5, 5 stars it means that it is a panoramic good now, we can continue on here and I say well, this is not like so I give it an x an x an x Look at the little flag appearing here and because it is comfortable to say no we want the x to be a rejected because that we can now give command and delete then it tells you want to delete all 8 master orthophotographs rejected from disk or just remove them from lightroom en say that we have given an x to us now lets with this shortcut which is control or command and delete that is to say this key here you have it this is allows us delete all that we have selected as x then we can remove them from lightroom is to say do not erase them from the disk hard drive or remove them from the disk which we want and I'm going to cancel now we go to the next point which is filter that once we have done these classifications we have given them scores little flags etc all this is very comfortable because now we can filter by example I want to see only the photographs that have the green label then I go down here where it says filter fix yourselves filter and yes no you It may appear that way to you filter not seen then you have to click in the word filter then you can see it I say I just want to see what they are green label then I give it here to green then down here I only see the that have a green label I think it is simple not simple or those that have a 5 then in this case they are the same or the that have green and 3 or more or I take the green for example then now only the filter of those that have stars and I also want three stars and also with flag so these are the only ones that have three stars and little flag this is super comfortable to filter and handle and order a lot of pictures and what with a few clicks of a session have hundreds of thousands of photographs we can select very quickly the better is very comfortable this really save a lot of time and to remove it Well, we remove here, we remove the filters or we give it here custom filter and we say unclassified then we remove all the vilters ok let's go for example to this photograph that I did that I liked a lot in Instagrám I will right click I will create a virtual copy, virtual copy that this good the course explained a little more but just a copy to be able work on it and now we move on to next point that are the basic adjustments that for this we no longer have to be in the library module but in the reveal module so we go here module reveal and now notice that the panels change left and right change a little how good this I can not explain all but a little above I will restore the photograph to be stay as at the beginning this is the original and with this we would begin to edit the basic tweaks we have them here in this panel here then the flow of work that I usually do because it is raise the shadows lower the highlights raise the exposure a little niggas under a little these is a a little fast but I can't extend myself It's not about touch-ups but so see a little how it works then look what with this we apply photography in general basic tweaks, that is, with these controls with these slider you apply that changes to the photograph whole so they are basic touch-ups we have it here in this touch-up panel basic and my workflow usually be that I do not give much to these controls but I make some general changes here then I add graduated filters radial filters brush etc.
Than that we are going to see it then once we have the photography with the controls complicated generals well now I'm going here to this tool which is the cut that is the r look at that is this tool here and well this there is also much to see here without but very basically we can trim the image and as I said it is not a flow destructive work is to say we are not going to lose those pieces of image that we cut but that are saved so that later if we want to cut again then we can then well more or less out there what I would leave but hey here you can change you can change the proportions sixteen ninths to export for a video or one by one that is square by example for instagram etc. or slightly more vertical formats all these things we can also turn the image if we put the cursor on this little corner well we can turn it like this more or less like this so later here we have the tool to remove stains this is good there are also many things to see but well more or less look how I did this photograph with the camera and the very dirty ND filter as it has stains so about stains just we are clicking and they are cleaning and that's it, that's very simple, there's more little things to see but well more or less this is and here graduated filters then we go on to the next point that they are partial touch-ups partial touch-ups It means that the things that we go to be applied now do not apply to the photography in general but to specific areas that this is where I I think lightroom becomes interesting because I like you I said I don't really like to apply retouching in general to the photograph and say take look that everything is super intense but create contrasts that I think is a key concept in photography then for create contrasts we have to apply different touch-ups to different parts that's why partial touch-ups are very very important I believe in photography like this that we go here to the graduated filter that is the shortcut m / m here we have it then this is very easy with the graduated filter we just click and drag if we have dragged all the top will be affected with the values that we change here that we have appeared here so I eat I've clicked from top to bottom, look if I put the contestant here all the top all the red part is the one that will be affected with changes that I make here then for example to what I better want to raise the exposure but lower the highlights and and I want to give it saturation and maybe I want to change the balance of whites well more or less that's the way it is so we can do as many as we want but look what appears to me with the changes of the previous graduated filter then to reset we press alt and look that this word here that puts an effect change to restore then restore and it goes to zero and maybe here I just want to take away exposure and now right click it I duplicate and carry it around here and then I think like a vignette and then around here to better this I am going to restore it and I am going to give it a little bit of warm tones and to the best of raise the shadows and give it saturation well this is going little by little okay is the first challenge that partial then there is the radial filter that here is shift z the shortcut shift z and this is simply that we click drag and it is created as an oval and the same we put it wherever we want and here we change the controls for example go up ah but what happens that I am uploading and uploading the entire photograph that's because down here we have to invert mask look then click if we give invert mask here below all changes are applied within the radial filotro and it was not then to I will do the best yes I will raise the exposure a little or I'm going to give you more like this, well this I'm doing it so fast I would never do it so fast but good for you to do an idea more or less more or less and so this is the interesting thing that can be played because we can put it around here and give areas like another color with more intensity less intensity this it's a matter of playing so maybe this area around here we will reset I give it a little exposure and already the last would be the brush look here the brush that this the same basically is a brush with which we apply the changes we have selected here for example I want this that we are we go out as silhouettes that is not to see colors or anything so alt I restore and I am going to lower the exposure I am going to lower the blacks and I'm going to lower the shadows then I paint on me and I come out black and on me friend Carol and then it starts to come out black and I could even give you more and then refine if I see that I have passed and I have painted out I can give the or so see where I'm painting I can hit the z to zoom and now I press alt y so I am painting less that is when I'm pressing alt it looks less About the areas that I don't want you to be affect this brush like this yes good this is very fast I am explaining very fast but so you can see how the flow of lightroom job and what are the tools you have I give alt z to exit the zoom I give the or to remove the part that is being affected when we are done here we have done and so now let's go to corrections that this is very fast but hey here we have the noise look at it in detail panel we have noise so if we see that there is a lot of noise we can give here to this tool here we select a dark area you see that here in tiny it looks with zoom to see if it has noise or not then here we can go up we go up reduction of noise but how detail is lost then we raise focus and we are going to create a mask so that it does not affect the entire photography but only in some this is it takes time to explain how it works but so you can see that here in the detail panel reduces noise and after corrections very important lens chromatic aberration is like when a border comes out of a color that creates the lens mostly in conditions complicated light for example here you see how there is a little edge I'm going to give a little more to the zoom is as there is a yellow border that is like a little weird in some photographs see clearer, look at how around here then yes we remove chromatic aberration Look, that board disappears, it's like those distortions or those, it's called aberration chromatic aberration created by lenses with this option is removed then look that in lens corrections we can one click fix this and then we are going to zoom back activate profile fixes than this it is very important because the lenses all targets have distortions then lightroom is a very powerful way to correct this look if we click here and the objective was automatic that is, in the metadata of the photograph is saved that objective is then I would already be with this is corrected the photograph distortions the vignette that we do not want that is there etc.
But this photograph I did it with the samyang 14 millimeters as is a manual lens no transmits information to the camera so lightroom doesn't know that I did it with that objective so we have to give it activate profile options but now we go here to lens profile we select brand let's go to samyang and choose here the model the 14 millimeters and that's it So see what change with correction without correction with correction without correction look at the horizon it is much straighter because the samyang has a mustache distortion that is called so with them we corrected it and now let's go to the next point which is panoramic let's see how panoramas are created this is very easy look to create panoramas only we have to select the first one we press shift we select the last one and now right click and let's go here to combination of photos and panorama then a preview is created here this preview that may be a little deformed but we have here that this limit deformation control which is how it corrects that distortion that has been created we can give you even butt that usually works quite a bit in photos we can try different ways of join them but directly we can give to combine then the panoramic photography and here the we have look here we have it down here and we can also continue editing about it because all the information that we had all the controls Look, we can go up again shadows go down that is, we have everything in the raw file so it is super powerful and then to create photographs in hdr although I do not have here no example but it is just as simple hdr I mean we have three photographs with different exhibitions as I am teaching you here this is part of the course it is simply to select the photographs with different exposures right button combination of photographs and we give hdr then directly we choose the blending modes we give to create then the photograph is created in hdr with a high dynamic range high dynamic range it's super easy and then for example imagine we want to go to photoshop to do some retouching additional because we have to delete some part of the image or whatever then to edit in photoshop is very very simple we right-click here to edit and directly to adobe photoshop and here we have it then for example we want apply a blur for whatever no gaussian blur we apply it and then now yes we give directly to command w se close this picture we give save and directly appears here a copy with the adjustments we have made and we still have the original we have made and original so to edit in photoshop super simple is very simple and the last point last point already we have the edited photograph this is the final result and so now we want to export so being the library module notice that here we have a button that is export next to the import or if not, if we are in the module reveal the shortcut that I like much shortcuts is command shift e then the export window appears directly this is very simple although there are many things to see too but hey, there is no time in this tutorial then here directly choose one specific folder where we want save it if we want we want a custom name we put the name the format is to say if we want in dng in jpg in gif in all these things the quality and here we do resize for example I usually resize when uploading to internet to 2,500, 2,500 pixels and the long edge that is to say that the long edge the edge longer have 2,500 pixels and if it is going to be for the internet that you do not forget to put it to srgb that is jpc srgb 2,500 long-edge pixels and that to upload to the internet is more than enough no more resolution is needed unless we go to see it on a 4k monitor etc.
Etc. and we would give to export and we already have the photography exported so this has been very very fast the very basic things that are needed to know how to edit in lightroom but in all the things we've seen can go on much more detail to know all nooks and crannies and all the options that each tool gives because lightroom is very very powerful you can do many more things than we've seen here but with this this is not at the moment enough to start here you have it the 10 basic things that we need to know brown start working with lightroom so if you have been interested you think it is a powerful tool because a look at my full course like I already told you on my website and if you don't have this tool and you want to get it in me website you have a links to adobe programs where you can find photography programs that is for a monthly subscription you can get the Adobe photography programs that are photoshop and lightroom are very powerful photo editing tools any amateur photographer or professional needs also how is the pack only of photography is not expensive I think so nothing else thank you very much for watching the video really thank you very much to you subscribe to those who comment you like and all these things you can do if you want because that helps the channel if you are not subscribed and you do not want to miss the tutorials that I upload every week Wednesday or the extra videos that your I go up some Sundays then subscribe and down like always therefore the links to social networks Facebook, Instagram where I am uploading things interesting all my photos and others so just thank you very much and we see in the following videos ¡¡¡ Adobi dubbiddidub dubbiddubi dubbidubbi
