Adobe Lightroom Classic CC is not only a vital tool for editing photos but also for organizing them! It makes your entire organization and photo editing process so much easier and more efficient! If you’ve been stuck on trying to figure out ways to sort through your travel photos or, in general, all of your photos you’ve taken throughout the years, then this program is your holy grail! Did you know that you are eligible for a FREE trial too? We’ve even put together a video tutorial to help you out with that entire process.
Below you’ll find our top reasons why you should try using Lightroom! It is a really exceptional skill for every photographer to have!
You can use Lightroom as a database for cataloging all of your photos! Your photos can be organized into collections that can be tagged with keywords, starred, colour tagged and more, to help you find them again later. This is especially useful when you’re taking countless photos all the time. It is very important to keep track of your work, and Lightroom can help out so you don’t get overwhelmed! You can tag your photo collections with a year, a place, such as Toronto, or a technique like bokeh. There is nothing else quite like Lightroom when it comes to a multi-purpose photo organization and editing tool!
Workflow | Batch Editing & Creating Presets
Lightroom is a valuable tool for a photographer’s workflow. There’s no denying that editing can be much quicker when you are able to do it in batches. Lightroom allows you to make the same edit to an entire collection photos, so if you need to make the same edit to every photo from a single shoot, this is the going to save you a lot of time. For example: if an entire set of your photos need the same exposure adjustment, you can edit one photo from the set and apply that same edit to the rest in a click of a button (no need to sit and edit each one individually). You can also create and save presets so that you can apply a series of edits from a previous photo to a new photo over and over again. Presets are an amazing way to create consistency with the look of your photos. As I’m sure you can tell, this helps a lot with productivity!
A watermark can help you establish your brand and if you choose to add a watermark to you photos, Lightroom is a great way to do it! The program easily allows you to create your own watermarks whether it’s text or a photo like your logo. Watermarks can be really simple to add to your photos when exporting them and you can definitely do this in batches as well. This systematic process will save you time. If a watermark is something you’re interested in, there’s no better way to get it done than with Lightroom.
Exporting your photos is always simple with Lightroom. Export your files from RAW to PSD, JPEG or other formats that you require in a click of a button. You can save export settings so that you can have them as presets to apply to your photos over and over again! If you’re planning on printing, Lightroom exports are the way to go. However, there’s no shortage of exporting options! You can change many things right before export, from file format to size and sharpness. Exporting in batches makes it even quicker!
Please note: Lightroom Classic CC is a desktop version of the program. You can download Lightroom CC on your desktop and on your phone; however, this is a cutdown version that will not give you all of the features that Lightroom Classic CC does.
