Building A Lasting Library

Photographs © George A. Jardine

If you have already purchased the online version of the Lightroom 4 Library videos, do not purchase this series. This is a free update to anyone who has purchased the Library 4 videos, and free downloads are available for those who purchased the Library 4 DVD.

This set of 18 video tutorials gives you over 7 hours of the very best online education available. It covers all the essential Library module functions for your digital photo library management for Lightroom 4, 5, 6 and CC (Classic). What is not covered? Facial recognition, and the connection to LR mobile, and the new Creative Cloud photo storage.

We start from the ground up, and guide any serious photographer—professional or passionate amateur—through the process of building an easy-to-use, but incredibly effective digital photo library. Then we dive deeper, tutorial-by-tutorial, through nearly every Lightroom Library feature, gently leading you to a solid and complete understanding of the entire professional workflow. Watch this online series anytime, day or night, and you will find thousands of tips and techniques that help you master your photo library and the new Lightroom Library workflow. The complete series is only $24.95.

For those of you who previously purchased the online version of Library 4 videos, this update will be there waiting for you when you log in. If you prefer downloads, just send me an e-mail request, and I’ll gladly send you the links.

If you previously purchased the Library 4 DVD on Amazon, send me an e-mail with your Amazon transaction number, and I’ll gladly send you download links for the 2 new videos.

Smart Previews is the single most significant feature for the Lightroom 5 Library, as it can help you dramatically streamline your location workflow. Therefore, the entire 22 minute duration of Update Video #2 is devoted to describing the Smart Preview location workflow in great detail.
