Top Tips: Getting to grips with Abode Lightroom

In the first of our new series of top photography tips, professional photographer and host of our Travel Photography Masterclasses shares some insights in to getting the most from Abode Lightroom:

"Adobe Lightroom is not just the perfect software for storing and RAW processing your pictures. You can use it to distribute them to various online sites too. The comprehensive Publish Services section allows you to manage your images on a wealth of picture sharing sites. Out of the box, you can use if for Flickr, Facebook, Google and Adobe Behance. You can also download plug-ins that allow you to send pictures to professional sites such as Smugmug, Photoshelter and Zenfolio. The advantage is that these are not simple upload services: depending on the provider you can create galleries and collections, move images around and upload images.

You can choose the size, format and even whether the images will have watermarks on them. Crucially if you edit the image or the metadata then you are able to upload a new image, or simply a corrected caption. This means that you can streamline your workflow, never loose track of an image and always make sure that you are showing off the the latest version of your images; wherever you have published them!"

This and many other tips will be covered in Steve Davey's Getting to Grips with Adobe Lightroom workshop at the Destinations Show in London. Workshops cost from £30, including entrance to the show. Click here for more information on the different masterclasses available.
