At the recent PSA conference, I showed some “Lightroom 3 Workflow” slides and mentioned that anyone who wanted to use the slides for education should contact me. Since the response has been overwhelming, I have linked to them below. Of course, anyone is welcome to use the slides, although they might not be as clear to those that did not attend the presentation…

    Thank-you. I have a presentation coming up, and your slide #8 is pretty much my workflow, and I am going to use it (and credit it). A big help!

    Julianne, I frequently recommend LR to my friends and often have to give them tutorials on using it. I also like to point them to your videos – and others – which clearly explain things and demonstrate concepts.

    I didn’t see your talk, however, … Slides 4-10 seem pretty straightforward to a moderately experienced LR user but I was wondering about the meaning behind slides 1-3. Perhaps you could do a video tutorial that that would tie all this together in one place.

      Thanks for the comment Les, Here is a condensed explanation – the first slide was to demonstrate that in the past most photographers were using Bridge and Lightroom (and it displays the many file formats that it supports). Slide 2 shows that since Bridge is in the center of all of the Creative Suite applications, it has many features that photographers may not need or use because it needs to meet the needs of so many creative people (such as web and print designers and motion and illustration). Because of this, (slide 3) represents that Adobe created LIghtroom which streamlines the workflow with the primary file formats that photographers use and focuses on taking care of the tasks that photographers use day in and day out – the organizational aspects such as rating, metadata and collections (in the Library module) and image refinement tools (in the Develop module) with the ability to jump quickly to Photoshop and output to several types of media.

    Heelllllpppp I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!!!! I am new to everything including lightroom. I know enough to get into trouble. On my lightroom 3 I used the “previous” button and now all my photo are going to a super overexposed preset setting. I tried to individually correct each one and they revert back. I have no idea how to stop this. I have had that happen to my cropping before too. How do I reset my system to not have it do that?
