Lesson Info

Adobe Lightroom Introduction for Real Estate Photographers

Welcome to this section of the real estate photography course. All about editing our photos in this section. We're going to cover the basics of editing in lightroom. If you already know how to use lightroom, the first couple lessons might be a little bit repetitive. You might want to skip them. If you are brand new to lightroom, I hope that this helps you out. I'll walk through importing organizing and all of the basic tools that you'll need to know to start editing your photos in lightroom. This is not an in depth A to Z beginner to advanced course on lightroom. We have another class on lightroom. If you're interested that I recommend you take, if you want to dive deeper and some of the things while I'll try to go over each step as clearly as possible, uh you might benefit from a little bit of background knowing how to edit in lightroom. But if you're coming from another editing app, this should be super helpful too. I am using Lightroom Classic. So Lightroom Classic is different than...

the Lightroom CC version, which is their cloud based editor, which is an amazing program, but I like using Lightroom Classic when I'm editing a lot of photos at one time and it also works really well. Going between Photoshop and Lightroom Classic. I'm using the 12.3 release which has a lot of the latest new A I BASED tools like masking some of that we'll be using. But you can use pretty much any version of Lightroom Classic to do a lot of what we're doing. So in this lesson, I just want to import our photos. The photos that I've given you as practice photos are in a zip file in one of the previous lessons. And when you open it up, you should see all of these files. These are DNG files which are f full resolution raw files that have all the information of that photo. So you'll be able to edit them just like I am for you. I've rename them to keep them organized bedroom, 1234. So that's four pictures of one bedroom and you'll see me combining these images in future lessons. I will be jumping over to the original photos sometimes when I want to show you some edits that are not in these, this set of photos. So I haven't given you every single photo that I've given, I've given you sort of a select few. I didn't want to overwhelm you. So unzip that file. Then here in lightroom, let me just give you a quick tour. So at the top, you have these tabs that basically take you to different rooms for different purposes. We're going to be staying in the library and develop tool. Develop tool is where you actually edit your photos. Library is where you organize them. On the left side of the library, you have your organization Navigator and down at the bottom, you have an import button, you might see this toolbar down here as well. This is our little photo tray where photos will pop up once we import them. So to import photos, there's a lot of ways to do it. Just like every tool you can use keyboard shortcuts. But there's a simple import button here in the bottom left from there, we're going to find the folder that you want to import. You can do that through the Navigator or you can actually simply go to your finder and you can click and select all your photos or if you're on a PC, you can use the documents and drag them into lightroom or what I would have done is gone into this external hard drive unto under this folder where I have them stored on my computer. I want you to import all of these photos. But if you were edit, taking photos yourself and you took a bunch of photos on a bunch of different shoots, you might want to just import certain photos. And from there when you open up a folder, you would just click on or off the photos that you want to import. There's also a handy uncheck all and check all button down at the bottom. Over on the right hand side, there are some things that you might want to do that are pretty cool for organization and one is add to a collection. And so I'm going to do that. You can do this later, but I think it's beneficial to do now. So add to the uh to collection is checked, then I'm gonna click the plus button and this is where you can create a collection or sort of like a folder for these photos. I'm going to just call this real estate photos. If you're doing a bunch of real estate jobs, you might want to name it as a specific job and then click create and now I'm going to click import. I'm not gonna do anything else over here. Just click import now, they will be imported into lightroom. You'll see them up here in the main window and then also in the little photo tray down at the bottom, which is nice. If you are viewing them one at a time with this button here, you can just go through and click on the photos down below all of these windows can also be moved around to give you more space and I'm sort of zoomed in on my screen. So it's easier for you to see in the playback. But if you're using a full resolution screen you'll have a lot more space uh real estate on your in your screen. You can always get back to these photos by going to the collections and clicking that folder. You can also go to catalog to see all the photos that you've created or imported into lightroom rather. And I started a new catalog for this course, which you can do by going up to file new catalog. But typically most people just use one catalog and import all of their photos into lightroom and organize them within collections, which is nice to do or you can find it under folders by going to. This is sort of like a view of your documents. You have your external hard drives and places that you've previously imported from. But I think it's easiest just to organize by collections. And within here, you can also create a collection if you need to move them around, create a new folder, separate them. Sometimes I have folders for all the photos and then I have another folder for the selects. I'm gonna talk more about organization in the next lesson. Coming up. I've already organized these photos. These are sort of the selects that I wanted to give you to practice with. But I'll talk through my process of organization if you were starting from scratch. All right. See you in that next lesson.

The course is a comprehensive learning experience and Philip's passion and expertise in photography and teaching are evident throughout the course. Key highlights for me included mastering lighting techniques, photo blending for high-quality interiors, and advanced strategies like the 'Flambient' process. This was straight forward, and easy to understand. I live in Australia an grateful that you kept the information relevant to any country.

Hey Philip, Just want to thank you for putting in the time and effort putting this course together. I’ve been shooting for 20 years but never really spent enough time on PS. This course really focuses on what you really need to know. Everything is really straight to the point. Philip provides images so you can follow along and really get a good work flow going. I personally enjoyed the

Overall, the completeness and depth of this course are excellent. The only thing that needs improvement is during the editing portion. Philip's voice was fading in and out even when the volume on my computer was set at 100%. His voice was excellent during the photo shoot portion of the course.
