Beginners Guide to Adobe Lightroom Techniques, Tutorials and Tools

Posted on 13 January 2011 by Liza Mae V.

I’ve been working with Adobe Photoshop for over 10 years and it is an amazing tool for Photographers and Designers. I love it, cherish it, and would marry it if I could. Now another program has caught my interest because I am starting to see more photographers switch to Adobe Lightroom. I am really curious of its capabilities compared to PS. I have been putting it off for a couple of months for I am afraid of the long learning curve involved with learning something new. Finally putting my fears aside I have decided to tackle this one step at a time.

Q&A: What is Lightroom?  How does it contrast and compare to PS?  Is it worth my time to learn?

a) Lightroom Vs. Photoshop – This article compares and contrasts PS and LR by target audience, workflow, image editing, integration, and price.
b) 20 Advantages of Lightroom – Summarizes the usefulness of LR.

MY NOTES: Lightroom is used to streamline the processes involved in photography. It is a tool used to efficiently and effectively manage and edit photos. As a photographer with an Industrial Engineering background (always trying to improve processes), I can use this tool to save time and money.

This is a compilation of useful Adobe Lightroom videos I found to get started.

1. Importing Photos – Add and import photos from a folder

2. Intro and Basic Editing – Tutorial on you how to do basic editing in Lightroom and exporting (saving) a file.

These are the basic videos I used to get started with Lightroom and it was easier than I expected.  I want to get more in depth with it but it is a start.
