In the first post in this series I discussed importing your photos into Lightroom and explained how I have Lightroom configured to import into a nicely organized, folder structure based on the import date. So you'd think I'd use this all the time, right?
One of the first hurdles users new to Lightroom run into is how to get to the images they have edited. It's common to think I imported them to the My Pictures folder, so I'll just use Windows Explorer to grab a copy.
In the previous post I described how I use the Import window. As I mentioned, I don't exclude any photos at that stage. I bring everything in and then quickly make a pass where I figure out which need to be deleted.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is an excellent piece of software I've recommended to many of my friends who have been bitten by the photography bug. It catalogs and organizes all of my photos, allows me to quickly and efficiently edit them, and assists in pushing the end results for others to see. While on the surface it is targeted to professionals, I'm no professional and wouldn't enjoy photography nearly as much without it.
