Understanding Lightroom Classic Architecture and Organizing Images

May 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+5.5

YPS Saturday Meet | May 18, Sat | 5:30 PM IST | Technical Talk | Google Meet

Lightroom was developed as a photographer-friendly software to complement Photoshop but became more popular than the latter with photographers due to its intuitive user interface and ease of use. It is a versatile multi-role software that covers several aspects of digital photography and is not limited to just post-processing. Plus it has a very powerful batch processing capability thus saving enormous time and effort for volume users. 

 However, to use Lightroom one has to overcome a “catch” as it is based on a different type of architecture compared to most other image processing and even any general purpose software. This can make the use of Lightroom a bit tricky to start but once the concept is understood, it will be smooth sailing thereafter with many benefits.

One more important point and the reason why Lightroom is not popular with some. Proper organization of the images is a must and without this, usage of Lightroom will get messy very soon leading to frustration. In other words, certain discipline has to be adhered to in the organization of your image storage, to reap the benefits of Lightroom.

 The purpose of the talk is to deal with these issues and to bring clarity to the topics mentioned.
