Tackling the 1st step in Lightroom-Importing with Jim Pennypacker

Session 4: 3:00pm – 3:45pm

Tackling the First Step in Lightroom: Importing

This session is aimed specifically at people who want to use Lightroom but are hesitant to start either because they do not know how or because they have heard how difficult Lightroom is to learn.  To use Lightroom, your images have to be imported into Lightroom, i.e. you have to tell Lightroom where you want your pictures to be stored.  In this session, Jim will show in detail every individual step in the Import process.  Jim assumes that participants collectively are working on a mix of Apple computers and PCs, that every participant probably has some images already stored in their computer, and that no two participants will have their images stored in exactly the same place or under the same file structure.  Regardless of this, Jim will show an Importing workflow that at the end will result in all participants being on essentially “the same page”.  Jim will also show the correct way to manage the files and folders containing images that have been imported.  At the conclusion of this session, every participant should have the very specific knowledge required to start using Lightroom without apprehension.
