How to Organize Pictures – Importing into Lightroom

For the second part of this series I thought it would be fun to do a video so that you can see my screen as I import my photos into Lightroom.  I know a lot of people get confused at this stage of Lightroom. This video shows where I’m importing from and where I’m importing to.

If you are considering making the move to Lightroom I can highly recommend taking Lesa Snider’s Course on Creative Live : Lightroom Essentials.  Lesa has really great way of explaining complicated concepts in an easy to understand manner and I love her relaxed, easy going style of teaching. Like all Creative Live courses, this one is broken down into easily manageable chunks and clearly takes your through the program covering all the bases in a fun, practical way.

And if you don’t gel well with Lesa’s style there are lots of other awesome Lightroom courses available on Creative Live to suit every skill level.  You’ll find yourself, as I do, referring back to them often.

Some of the Resources Mentioned:

Abobe Lightroom 6

Adobe Creative Cloud

Lesa Snider’s : Lightroom Essentials [Creative Live]

Western Digital My Book External Hard drive
