1. Connect the camera or memory card reader to your computer.
In addition to cameras and memory card readers, Lightroom imports photos from any folder on the hard drive, CDs or DVDs, and other storage devices. You can also import photos from another Lightroom catalog or from Photoshop Elements. To have Lightroom start automatically when you plug in a camera or card reader, choose Lightroom > Preferences (Mac OS) or Edit > Preferences (Windows). In General, look under Import Options and select Show Import Dialog When A Memory Card Is Detected.
2. Select the location of the photos to import.
To bring photos into the catalog, do any of the following:
Click the Import button in the Library module. Choose File > Import Photos. Drag a folder that contains photos or drag a group of photos into the Grid view of the Library module.
Use the Source panel on the left side of the import window to navigate to the folder that contains the photos you want to import.
3. Choose how to add the photos to your catalog.
In the center of the import window, choose whether to import photos by referencing them, by copying or moving them to a specified directory, or by copying photos as Digital Negative (DNG) files. If you copy or move photos, specify where to put them using the Destination panel on the right side of the window. See Add, copy, or move photos into the catalog on page 32.
4. Preview and select photos.
Using the previews in the center of the window, select the photos that you want to import. See Preview and select photos to import on page 33.
5. (Optional) Back up your photos as theyre importing.
If youre copying or moving photos into the catalog, specify whether to make a one-time backup of the original photos as theyre imported. See Back up photos during import on page 33.
6. Select the type of previews to display.
Standard-size previews provide higher quality photos in the Grid view. Selecting Minimal uses the embedded previews in photos and initially displays photos faster. See Specify initial previews when importing on page 34.

7. (Optional) Give your files a custom name.
When copying or moving photos into the catalog, Lightroom by default imports photos using their current filenames. You can customize the name by choosing an option from the File Renaming panel. For example, you can add a sequence number. See Rename photos when importing on page 34.
8. (Optional) Set options for importing your photos.
In the Apply During Import panel, set options to apply Develop settings, metadata, or keywords to the photos as theyre imported. See Apply Develop settings to photos when importing on page 37 and Apply metadata to photos when importing on page 37.

9. Click Import.

Lightroom displays a progress bar in the upper-left corner of the window as it imports the photos. Then it renders thumbnails in the central area of the Library module. For more information on how to import photos into Lightroom, see these tutorials:

About Lightroom catalogs

Lightroom uses a catalog to track the location of files and remember information about them. A catalog is like a database that contains a record of your photos. This record is stored in the catalog and contains data such as preview information, links that indicate where the photos are located on your computer, metadata that describes the photos, and editing instructions applied in the Develop module. When you rate photos, add metadata and keyword tags, organize photos into collections, or remove photos from the catalogeven when the original photo files are offline the settings are stored in the catalog. All of this information enables Lightroom to give you flexibility in managing, identifying, and organizing photos. If youre photographing on location, for example, you can import photos into Lightroom on your laptop, and then move the original photos onto writable media or storage devices, and continue organizing and managing your photos without worrying about filling up the laptop hard drive. You can then transfer the catalog to your desktop computer, preserving the changes you make and keeping track of where the photos are stored. The catalog that you import with photos from the on-location shoot would be a separate catalog from any other catalog that may be stored on the desktop computer. Note: Although you can view photos in both Lightroom and Adobe Bridge, the two applications behave differently. To view photos in Adobe Bridge, your computer hard drive must contain the photos, or your computer must be connected to a storage media that contains the photos. This is because Adobe Bridge is a file browser that only displays readily accessible photos. The Lightroom catalog is a database that keeps track of the photos you import, so you can preview photos whether your hard drive contains the actual photos or not. To edit photos in Lightroom, however, the software does need to be able to access the stored photos. By default, Lightroom loads the most recent catalog. You can open a different catalog by choosing File > Open Catalog, or you can determine which catalog is opened in the General preferences.

6 Click Import.

Import photos automatically
The Auto Import feature automatically imports photos into a Lightroom catalog by monitoring a watched folder for photos and then importing them into a destination folder in the catalog. After you specify auto-import settings, you can simply drag photos into the watched folder, and Lightroom imports them automatically, allowing you to bypass the import window. Auto Import is useful if Lightroom doesnt support your camera for tethered import: You can use third-party software to download photos from your camera to a watched folder. For a tutorial, see Tethered shooting: auto import using EOS utility (PDF), an excerpt from The Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book, by Martin Evening. If Lightroom starts automatically when you attach a camera or card reader to your computer and you want to turn off this functionality, change your import preferences. See Set import and file-handling preferences on page 30.

Chapter 6: Managing catalogs and files
About Lightroom catalogs on page 7 Import photos from a different Lightroom catalog on page 40
Creating and managing catalogs
When you launch Lightroom and import photos, a catalog file (Lightroom Catalog.lrcat) is automatically created for you. The catalog tracks the photos and their information, but it doesnt contain the actual photo files themselves. Most people want to keep all their photos in one catalog, which can have thousands of photos, but you can create separate catalogs for different purposes. For more information on Lightroom catalogs, see the Help topic About Lightroom catalogs on page 7 or the support doc Catalog FAQ | Lightroom (333736).

Create a catalog

When you create a catalog, you create a name for the folder, such as Wedding Photos, that includes a catalog file (such as Wedding Photos.lrcat). This catalog file stores catalog settings. When you import photos, a new subfolder (such as Wedding Photos Previews.lrdata) is created to store the JPEG preview images.
1 Choose File > New Catalog. 2 Specify the name and location of the new catalog folder, and then click Save (Windows) or Create (Mac OS).

Combine or merge catalogs
You can create a catalog from existing photos in Lightroom by selecting the photos and exporting them as a new catalog. Then, if desired, you can merge the new catalog with another catalog. This is useful when, for example, you initially import photos into a catalog on a laptop computer and then you want to add the photos to a master catalog on a desktop computer.
1 Select the photos you want to add to the new catalog. 2 Choose File > Export As Catalog. 3 Specify the name and location of the catalog. 4 Indicate whether you want to export the negative files and previews, and then click Save (Windows) or Export
Catalog (Mac OS). Negative files refers to the original files that were imported into Lightroom. The new catalog contains the selected photos and their information. You must open the new catalog to view it.
5 (Optional) To combine catalogs, import the new catalog into another. See Import photos from a different
Lightroom catalog on page 40.

Delete a catalog folder

When you delete a catalog folder, you erase all the work youve done in Lightroom that isnt saved in the photo files. While the previews are deleted, the original photos being linked to are not deleted.
Using Windows Explorer or Mac OS Finder, locate the catalog folder you created and drag it to the Recycling Bin
(Windows) or Trash (Mac OS).
Change the default catalog
By default, Lightroom opens the most current catalog at startup. This behavior can be changed to opening a different catalog or to always prompt you to choose a catalog.
In the General preferences, choose one of the following from the When Starting Up Use This Catalog menu: The file path of a specific library Opens the catalog found at a specific file path location. Load Most Recent Catalog Opens the most recent catalog youve been working with. Prompt Me When Starting Lightroom Opens the Select Catalog dialog box at startup.
Note: You can also choose Other, navigate to a specific catalog file (.lrcat) and select it as the default library to open at startup.

Change catalog settings

1 Choose Edit > Catalog Settings (Windows) or Lightroom > Catalog Settings (Mac OS). 2 In the General tab, do any of the following:
Information Provides information such as the location, filename, and creation date of the catalog. Click Show to view
the file in Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac OS).

1 Select a user preset and modify settings as needed. 2 Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) a preset in the Presets panel and choose Update With Current


3 Specify the settings you want to include in the preset and click Update.

Delete a custom preset

You cannot delete built-in Lightroom presets. You can delete only custom presets.
In the Develop module, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) a preset in the Presets panel and choose
Delete. Note: Do not press the Delete key on your keyboard; this deletes the currently selected photo.
Determine where custom presets are stored
By default, custom (user) presets are stored in a folder in the Lightroom folder. For the specific locations on Mac OS and Windows, see the Adobe Support article Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 preferences and other file locations (cpsid_84313).
To store user presets in a folder with the catalog, in the Presets panel of the Preferences dialog box, select Store Presets With Catalog. To see where a user preset is located, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) it in the Presets panel of the Develop module and choose Show In Explorer (Windows) or Show In Finder (Mac OS).
Import and export a Develop preset
You can export presets youve created to share with colleagues or to use on a different computer. Preset templates are saved with an.lrtemplate extension.
To export a preset, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) a preset and choose Export. Type the name of the preset template file and click Save. To import a preset, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the area where you want the preset to appear and choose Import. Double-click the preset template file.

Undo image adjustments

Lightroom provides several ways to undo, or reset, adjustments you make to photos as youre working in the Develop module.

Solo Mode If you want just one panel at a time to be visible, right-click (Control-click in Mac OS) one of the panel headers, and choose Solo Mode from the menu. Opening one panel automatically closes the other panels in the same panel track. Panels can also be removed from the panel track. Right-click (Controlclick in Mac OS) the header of any panel in a panel track and choose the panel you want to hide or show from the menu. For a menu that lets you select Auto Hide & Show, Auto Hide, and Manual modes, right-click (Control-click in Mac OS) the outer margin of the window on the side of the panel. Your choices for each mode are retained on a per-panel basis. You can adjust the font size in the panels with the Interface tab in the Preferences window. Choose Lightroom > Preferences (Macintosh) or Edit > Preferences (Windows).
2 Hover your cursor over the triangle to show the Filmstrip. 3 Move your cursor off the Filmstrip to hide it. The Filmstrip remains hidden until you click the triangle to always display the Filmstrip.

View options

The first thing you will want to do is set up the Grid and Loupe viewing options. 1 From the menu bar, choose View > View Options. 2 From the Grid View tab, select Show Grid Extras: Compact Cells.
5 Select the Loupe View tab and Show Info Overlay: Info 1 from the menu. 6 Choose File Name and Capture Date Time from the Loupe Info 1 menu and select None for the third option.
Advantage: Your Loupe View image now has an information overlay specifying the filename, date shot, and image location for quick reference.
Now that you have set your viewing preferences and know how to use the various window views, its time to learn about the toolbar at the bottom of the main window. You can show or hide the toolbar using keyboard shortcut T.
3 Under Cell Icons, choose Include Pick Flags and Thumbnail Badges as the general information you want to view. 4 From Compact Cell Extras, choose Top Label: File Name and Bottom Label: Rating and Label.
Advantage: Each thumbnail will now contain a visual representation of the filename, as well as any starring or labeling attached to your images. The compact Grid View maximizes the available space on your computer screen.
At the left side of the toolbar are the Grid View and Loupe View buttons. The Grid View button lets you see your images in the thumbnail grid. Loupe View displays a single, fullscreen image. The Compare View and Survey View buttons enable you to see multiple images together.
1 View multiple images in Survey View by choosing three images from either the Grid View or the Filmstrip. Click the Survey View button. The images load side-by-side, making it easy to compare them. Starring and labeling options are available below each image.

Collections lets you group images from your Library in one place for easy viewing. An image can be part of more than one Collection. Think of Collections as a sorting tool. 1 To add an image to a Collection, select your image and click the plus sign in the upper-right of the Collections panel. 2 Name your new Collection, and select Include Selected Photos to add your images. Once a Collection is created, you can add additional images by dragging them onto the Collection name.
The Find panel lets you perform a text-based or date/time search of your catalog.
Left Panel OVERVIEW (cont.)


The physical location of the images in a Collection doesnt change. If you delete an image from a Collection, it remains in your catalog, and its folder is displayed in the Folders panel according to where the image is stored on your computer. 1 Select several images and click the plus sign in the Collections panel to bring up the Create Collection dialog box. 2 Name your collection Test Portfolio and make sure you have chosen Include Selected Photos.
Keyword Tags list the keywords of all the images in your catalog. Click a keyword to find corresponding images.
Quick Develop enables you to make basic changes to multiple images simultaneously. More refined adjustments should be made in the Develop module.
Advantage: After processing a single image in the Develop module, you can easily apply your processing instructions to multiple images in your catalog by clicking the Sync Settings button.
The Metadata Browser lists a subset of important metadata in your catalog. Click any highlighted metadata to find the corresponding images.
Keywording and Metadata options in the right panel also let you make quick adjustments manually, or by creating and using presets.
Advantage: This is a good place to quickly apply or correct settings from import.
3 Click the Create button to add the images to the Collection. 4 Select several more images from your Library Grid View, and drag them onto the Test Portfolio collection listed under Collections. You will find the Library module interface invaluable for managing your image selection and workflow.


Now that you know how to quickly change your viewing options, the following editing technique makes the selection process painless.
1 Choose an image and bring it into Loupe View

(keyboard shortcut E).

2 Hold down the shift key and use numeric keys 0-5
to assign ratings to your images. Once an image has been rated, the next image is selected automatically.

Image Adjustments

The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Develop module offers sophisticated image adjustment tools in a convenient set of panels.


Window Overview, Develop module File: Lightroom_597.dng Located on the Lightroom CD in the Sample folder


The toolbar in Develop contains additional tools specific to image editing. The Develop module has a Before/ After button (similar to the Compare View button) that lets you see your processing changes in relation to your original file settings. Click the down arrow for viewing choices.
1 Click the Crop tool and then select the Crop Frame tool. Draw your crop on the image. If you dont like the results, click the Reset button in the toolbar. 2 When youre pleased with the crop, place your cursor inside the cropped image. Drag the image within the crop guides until it is optimally positioned.
Use the Reset tool to reset the image crop.
The Remove Red Eye tool isolates the area of the eye that needs adjustment.
1 Enlarge the preview to 100% by clicking once on the image window. 2 Click the Before/After button repeatedly to cycle through the different before-and-after views. The Crop tool creates handles that let you drag the top and sides of the image to the desired crop. The Crop tool also provides access to the Crop Frame tool, Aspect Ratio menu, and Straighten tool. 3 Move the cursor outside the cropped area and then activate the Straighten tool. You can use the Straighten slider in the toolbar, or drag in the image to define a level position.
The Remove Spots button activates the Clone/Heal tool, which lets you remove spots and blemishes in metadata at the raw level and apply the same procedure to multiple images simultaneously. You can easily remove a blemish that is in the same spot on several frames by using the Copy and Paste settings.


Eyedropper If you dont have a gray card in the shot, you can use someones teeth or the whites of their eyes as a good starting point for white balance. Remember that you are not locked into this setting. A perfectly neutral image may be inappropriate for a portrait. Skin tones often look better with added warmth.
Setting the White Balance can be accomplished in several ways. For example you can choose a preset from the White Balance (WB) menu in the Basic panel of the Develop Module. You can also create your own custom presets. 1 It is best to start by choosing a preset that most closely resembles the original shooting conditions. The sample image Lightroom_597.dng (found on your Lightroom CD in the Sample folder) was shot in a studio using strobe lights, so we chose Flash as our initial White Balance setting.

2 Move the sliders to get a feel for how they work. Use the Clear button or the History panel (in the left panel) to return to your original settings.


The arrows at the bottom of the Tone Curve graph define the workable range of highlight, shadow, light and dark areas that will be reflected in the Tone Curve. If you move the Highlights arrow to the left and the Shadows arrow to the right, the Highlights and Shadows sliders affect a much larger section of the curve.
5 Another way to adjust specific tonal areas of your image is to use the small Target button in the upper-left corner of the Tone Curve window. Click the Target button and let your cursor hover over the portion of the image you wish to adjust. Use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the Point Curve that corresponds to the targeted image area. Click the Target button again to turn off this feature.
The Grayscale button in the Basic panel lets you convert the photo to black-and-white. The preview in the main window reflects the change.
Now that you have a feel for how the Tone Curve sliders work, you can fine-tune your image. If your files were shot under controlled lighting conditions, the images will look good at most Lightroom default settings. 3 To darken the highlights, adjust the Highlights slider to approximately -10. 4 Move the Shadows slider to -10 to darken the shadow areas, increasing the overall contrast. To see how your new settings have changed the image, click the on/off switch in the Tone Curve panel header to the off position. Alternately, you can use Before/After views to see your changes.
In addition to the Exposure and Tone Curve adjustments, eight color channels can be adjusted by using the sliders in the Grayscale panel. When you want to convert an image to black-and-white, the Auto-Adjust button is a good place to start.
The Point Curve determines how the S shape is applied to your Tone Curve.


Youve carefully made all your adjustments, proceeding step by step through each possible option. But you may be uncertain whether your changes actually enhance your image. You can judge your image adjustments by clicking the Before/After button in the Develop module toolbar. The Before/After button provides four viewing modes that let you see the images side-by-side and top-tobottom, with or without a split view. The Split options divide a singleimage window, using either a left/ right or top/bottom configuration.

3 Click the Check All button to include all the settings in your presets. 4 Name the preset and click the Create button to save it. Your saved preset is now available in the Presets panel.
1 Select an image in the Filmstrip panel. The image will now have a white border. 2 Command-click (Mac OS) or right-click (Windows) several other images. Your selected images should all have a light gray background. Unselected images retain their dark gray background.
The image you selected in Step 1 is still the one previewed in the main window. 3 Click the Sync button to apply the settings from the previewed image to all the selected photos.
Adjusting MUltiple IMAGES USING Copy and paste
This brings up the Synchronize Settings dialog box, which lets you choose which settings to apply. If you want to change a setting, such White Balance, select the corresponding box. 4 For this exercise, select all the settings (the Synchronize Settings default).
1 Select your adjusted image, and click the Copy button to load the adjustment settings.
4 Choose an image, and use the Quick Develop settings to make adjustments. Make a radical change to the color balance so you can easily see your changes in Grid View.
As in the Synchronize Settings dialog box, the Copy Settings dialog box provides the option of copying all image settings or any sub-selection of settings. 2 Use the Paste button to add your settings to other images, either one at a time or by making multiple selections. You can also apply settings to multiple images in the Library module, using the Sync Settings and Sync Metadata buttons. Using the buttons in the Library module enables you to quickly make image corrections to large numbers of photos in Grid View.
Another way to adjust multiple images is to use the Copy and Paste buttons.
3 Return to Library module, using keyboard shortcut key G.
Adjusting MUltiple IMAGES USING Copy and paste (CONT.)
5 Change the White Balance menu to Tungsten. The file will turn blue.
The first image selected has a white background, while the others have a light gray background. The settings will be copied from the first image and synchronized to the others.

The following steps shows what happens when you save a major change in Photoshop. 2 In Photoshop, go to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation, and change the Saturation slider to +50. Click OK. This should make it easy to tell if Lightroom updates the preview image based on the changes you made in Photoshop. 3 Save the image in Photoshop and close it. 4 Return to Lightroom, and check the preview image to see if its changed. Lightroom loads the copy of the image to the right of the original thumbnailunless you chose Stack with Original, which loads the images to the left.
7 Before you click the Export button, save this export as a preset by using the Preset menu at the top of the dialog box. Choose Save Current Settings as New Preset and name it TIFF 1000 to reflect the settings.
8 Double-check your export by opening the photo in Photoshop and making sure that your color space, file type, and sizing are correct. Note that the image has retained its rectangular shape and is not 1000 pixels square.
Your image opens in Photoshop, using the settings chosen in Lightroom > Preferences > External Editors (Mac OS) or Edit > Preferences > External Editors (Windows). The default setting creates a 16-bit PSD copy to work on in Photoshop. Once you make adjustments in Photoshop and save your image, the changes are reflected in the Lightroom copy that is added to your catalog.
This workflow enables you to use the power of Photoshop when you need it, but still lets Lightroom manage your files.
Backup and archive catalogs

Export catalogs

A Photoshop Lightroom catalog contains information and preview images that describe a set of images. By exporting and importing catalogs and all of the information stored in Lightroom, your images can be moved from one computer to another, archived on storage media, or used for a number of backup and synchronizing tasks. When your hard drive is getting full, you can archive your photos by exporting them to a Lightroom catalog. Keep in mind that the original photo files are not automatically deleted from your hard drive during the export as a catalog. You need to manually delete the photos from the hard drive. You have the option of keeping the previews of the exported photos in your currently-open library or removing them.
1 Select a group of photos in Grid View (Library module only) or from the Filmstrip and then choose File > Export As Catalog.
3 For this exercise, make sure Export Selected Photos Only, Export Negative Files and Include Available Previews options are selected. The exported catalog is in a folder containing a sub-folder of image files, the rendered previews file, and the metadata file.
Not selecting photos before choosing Export As Catalog exports the entire currently-open catalog. 2 In the Export As Catalog dialog box, type a name for the new catalog and choose a destination.

Auto Import

The Auto Import feature automatically imports photos into the Lightroom catalog by monitoring a watched folder for photos and then moving the photos into your catalog and a folder designated by the photographer. The feature has many uses. For example, if your camera manufacturer software provides a tethered connection feature and can download the photos to a watched folder, Lightroom can monitor the folder and automatically import the photos as theyre being taken.
1 Choose File > Auto Import > Auto Import Settings. 2 Click the Choose button to choose a folder to watch. Note: You cannot choose an existing folder containing photos as a watched folder. 3 Choose a destination folder. It is a good policy to create a sub folder for each shoot so that the incoming images are grouped together. 4 Choose a file naming scheme to rename the imported images as they are copied to your catalog. See page 11. 5 Choose your Develop and Metadata presets from the menus. See page 12. 6 Type keywords you wish to add as you import. See page 13. 7 Select Render Standard-Sized Previews to render previews of the imported photos rather than only using the embedded previews in the image files. Your thumbnails and Loupe previews will now reflect the chosen Develop preset settings instead of the camera generated settings.
8 Choose File > Auto Import > Enable Auto Import. 9 Next follow your camera manufacturers instructions for setting up tethered shooting. 10 Choose the folder you picked for Lightroom to watch. 11 Take a photo and it quickly loads into your catalog. To view only the images from the watched folder, select the watched folder from the Folders panel. Now you can work in Lightroom while shooting tethered. Your camera manufacturer software loads the images from the camera and into your watched folder. The photos are then automatically imported into your Lightroom catalog.


Slideshows are a great way to share your images. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom provides you with easy-to-use tools that will give you impressive results.

Slideshow Controls

Window Overview, Slideshow Module


1 For this lesson, choose several images from your Lightroom catalog. 2 Select the Slideshow module. Your first image appears in the main window.
Slideshow options are available in two locations. The left panel contains the Template Browser. The right panel lets you customize the current slideshow and then update an existing template or create new templates.

3 To set up a text-based Identity Plate, select the Use a Stylized Text Identity Plate option.
7 To save your settings, choose Save As from the menu to the right of Enable Identity Plate. Type your name, and click Save. 8 Select OK to exit the Identity Plate Editor, and your Identity Plate appears in the upper-left corner of the Lightroom window. Now that you created your Identity Plate, it will be available in all the Lightroom modules.
4 Type your name in the text box. 5 Highlight your text, and use the font menus directly below to change the font size and color as needed.
6 For this exercise, assign the Module Picker buttons the same font as your Identity Text buttons, using the menus.


1 In the Overlays panel, select the Identity Plate option. This panel lets you adjust the opacity and scale of the Identity Plate.
Use the mouse or your arrow keys to move the Identity Plate.
6 For this exercise, drag the filename under the Identity Plate. Use the bounding box handles around the filename to scale it larger. 7 Move your cursor over the center of the filename. Then drag it to a different location on your slide. 8 To add a custom text element to the slide, activate the Custom Text box by clicking the ABC button in the toolbar.
4 To see any rating stars that youve applied to your images, select the Rating Stars option.
2 Move the Scale slider until your Identity Plate is the size you want. 3 To reposition the Identity Plate, place your cursor over it until the hand tool appears, then click to select the Identity Plate.
5 Text Overlays controls visibility of all text on your slide except your Identity Plate. Select the Text Overlays option to see available text. The images filename is visible in the Default template.
9 Type the desired text into the Custom Text box. Press Return (Mac OS) or Enter (Windows). Your custom text appears on every slide. 10 To change any text element on the page, double-click the text in the main window, and type in the Custom Text box to make your edits.


Backdrop lets you change the appearance of your Slideshow background. 1 Select Color Wash. Choose a color, using the color box. The background changes to reflect your choice. The Background Color setting mixes with the Color Wash setting. Depending on the Background Color, you may need to readjust the Color Wash overlay.
4 The other option in the Backdrop panel is Background Image. Drag a thumbnail from the Filmstrip into the Background Image area. 5 Experiment with different combinations of the Backdrop features to see the resulting effects.
Playback determines how long each slide will be visible, as well as the length of transitions between slides. It also lets you select a soundtrack from your iTunes library (Mac OS) or folder of mp3 files (Windows). 1 Click the Soundtrack box and choose a playlist from your iTunes library (Mac OS) or browse to a folder of mp3 files (Windows).

5 The Overlays panel lets you choose the text elements and metadata information that will appear on each photo. For this exercise, well include the Identity Plate on your prints. 6 Select the Identity Plate option. (See page 55 for more information on how to set up an Identity Plate.) 7 Click the Identity Plate preview in the Overlays panel to display the options menu. Choose Edit from the menu to open the Identity Plate Editor dialog box. It lets you customize the color and font to suit your needs. You should now be able to see your Identity Plate. 9 Use the Scale slider to adjust the Identity Plate to the size you want. 10 Select the Identity Plate by clicking it in the main window. Drag the Identity Plate to the lower-left side of the contact sheet. (This is why the lower margin was increased.)
12 Select the Photo Info option. Click the triangle next to Custom Settings and choose Filename from the menu. This option prints the filename under each image. If you select Edit, you open the Text Template Editor described on page 11, which lets you customize the Photo Info thats displayed and printed. Any change you make in the right panel displays in the main window. This makes it easy to see how your choices affect your final printed images. 13 Click the Add button at the lower-left of the left panel to save this contact sheet as a new template, and name it 4x5 Custom. This custom template retains all your settings.


Acrobat PDF Options (Mac Only) Save PDF contact sheets by clicking the Print button to open the dialog box and then clicking the PDF button to open the PDF menu. Save As PDF creates a full-resolution PDF file. Mail PDF attaches a web-sized PDF to an e-mail message in your default mail application. This is a great way to send proofs to clients.
You can use Draft Mode Printing to print contact sheets and quick drafts of a photo. In this mode, Lightroom uses cached photo previews when printing. This means that you dont have to wait for each image to be processed before it can be printed. Be aware that if you select photos that havent been fully cached and print them using Draft Mode Printing, Lightroom sends their thumbnail data to the printer, and the print quality of those photos might not be what you expect.

Color Palette lets you customize your gallery with your preferred color scheme. To open the color picker for choosing a color, click the color box for each aspect of the gallery that you want to change. It is often helpful to start with larger areas of color, such as the background, and then determine the other colors you want to use when displaying your photos on the web.
Dont be afraid to experiment. You can always click the HTML Gallery default template to return to the original color scheme. The preview area in the main window displays your changes.


Once you are satisfied with the colors, you can determine the layout. 1 In the Appearance panel, deselect Show Cell Numbers to remove the cell index numbers on each thumbnail. Lightroom uses a visual grid to determine the number of thumbnail images displayed per page. The lowest count is three down and three across. 2 Click the fifth cell down and across in the cell grid to create five thumbnails across and five down in the main panel preview.
3 Click the Cell Grid again to choose the number of columns and rows you prefer. The Appearance panel also lets you specify drop shadows, borders, and pixel dimension of your full-size images. 4 If you would like to add the Identity Plate as an additional header on your web page, select the Identity Plate option in the Site Info panel. (See page 55 to find out how to set up the Identity Plate.)
The Image Info panel determines the information displayed on each web page. To place the filename at the top of every large preview image in your web gallery, choose Filename from the triangle at the right of the Title option. Choosing Edit opens the Text Template Editor (see page 11).
You can turn your Identity Plate into a link by typing a URL in the Web or Mail Link text box directly under the Identity Plate. The default is the home page of the Web Gallery, which is index.html.


Upload Settings
Output Settings specifies the JPEG quality. Moving the Quality slider to the right increases both the image quality and the image file size. You can also determine whether the JPEGs contain copyright information only or all metadata. Theres also an option to adding a copyright watermark.

The Upload Settings panel provides a way upload your web gallery to your web server. 1 Click the triangle to the right of the FTP Server to open the menu and then choose Edit. 5 Click the OK button to apply your changes. The next choice you need to make in the Upload Settings panel is whether to load your web gallery into a subfolder. You should consider using subfolders if you plan to upload multiple web galleries. The home page of every web gallery you create is index.html. If you try loading multiple galleries into the same folder on your server, you could end up overwriting your other galleries. 1 Select the Put in Subfolder option. 2 Name the subfolder by typing in the text box. The Lightroom default is the name of the folder containing the images in your catalog. Before you click the Upload button, it is a good idea to click the Preview in Browser button to test your gallery in your preferred browser.
2 In the Configure FTP File Transfer dialog box, enter your FTP server address, username, and password. 3 If you have FTP access to your website, use the Browse button to check the server path. This lets you determine the exact location where your website will be loaded. Clicking this button tells Lightroom to connect to your FTP server using the address, username, and password you supplied earlier. This is a good way to check if your settings are correct and if your connection is working. 4 Name your preset (for example, My Website), and save it using the Preset menu at the top of the dialog box.
The Web module offers a powerful way to create sophisticated web sites without any HTML or Flash knowledge. Be sure to experiment with the various settings, including the Flash template.


Its easy to get up to speed quickly with Lightroom, but the more you work with it, the more functionality you discover. The goal of this guide is to get you up and running. For detailed explanations, including information about all the options available for each module, consult these resources:
