If you are reading this article you probably already have an idea as to why you should be using Adobe Lightroom. If you are not using it already, you should definitely consider using it. It’s free, it’s easy to use, and you can even add a little artistic flare to your photos with an unlimited number of Photoshop filters!
To be honest, I am not an artist and I do not know all the different things that Adobe Lightroom does. So, what does Adobe do? Well, Adobe has a number of different programs for photographers to help them edit their photos. Some are full-blown photo editing programs, while others provide a basic type of editing that’s perfect for general photo manipulation.
The best way to learn about Lightroom is to look at its website. You will find a ton of information there, and the Adobe websites will all give you the same information so you can pick the one that’s best for you. Also, there are free tutorials available, so check them out.
What I am going to do in this article is to walk you through all the basics that you need to know to get started with your photo editing. This is going to show you exactly what to do and where to start so you can get started right away.
One of the first things you should do when you go to Lightroom is take a look at your list of edits. Is there anything on there that you really don’t like? If there is, remove it. Now, take a look at your profile. If there are some options that you don’t like, remove them as well.
After you’ve taken a look at the list of things you want to change, open up your digital camera and make sure that the file format is set correctly. Many people get a digital camera that requires you to change the file format for some reason, and if this is the case for you, either change the file format or purchase a new digital camera. There are two ways to make a change to the file format of your digital camera.
First, in Adobe Lightroom, you will need to click on the Insert tab at the top of the window. Click on the field named “Make this image file”. You will then be able to make a change to the file format of your digital camera.
If you don’t see the option under “Make this image file”, on your own computer, you will need to download and install a program called Xset! I am not going to get into the details of how to use it because there are tons of tutorials on the Internet for that. Simply get Xset, install it on your computer, and then follow the directions in your tutorial to make a change to your digital camera.
One of the best parts about the program that is Adobe Lightroom is that you can preview everything that you did before saving it. In the upper left corner of the main Lightroom window is a symbol called the Preview button.
When you preview your changes, it will tell you what changes you made, and when you click the Save As button it will save the changes to the original file. So, if you really hate a particular picture editing tool, just go ahead and remove it and save it as a default.
After you’ve finished with your photo editing, you will want to go back to your computer and save the edited version. Now, if you go to Lightroom, and then go to the File menu, and click on the New Image button, it will ask if you want to save your image. Choose Save As and then click OK.
