Organize, Manage, and Back Up Essential Lightroom Classic Files, with Rob Sylvan
Beyond your photos there are a number of key files you need to be aware of and, keep under control, and keep backed up.
Help! My Lightroom is a Mess, with Daniel Gregory
Have you gotten yourself a big mess of Lightroom goo? Wish you even knew where to start cleaning up so you could think about being organized. In this session, you will learn how to quickly and easily clean up your catalog and get set up for being organized moving forward. Unlike how to be organized, this is how to fix when you didn’t start organized.

Once you’ve used Lightroom for a while, it’s best to take measures to assure Lightroom remains agile and does not bloat your hard drive. A few simple steps along with a pinch of automation will make a world of difference.
Start-to-Finish Workflow, with Nicole Young
Watch as Nicole walks through the import, edit, and export process of two full photo shoots in Lightroom Classic. You’ll see the whole process, from importing the photos, culling (selecting) the images, processing them in the Develop module, and exporting them for print, web, and collage.
Ingest is Not a Joke, with Sean McCormack
Maximize your image management right from the start. Getting your photos into Lightroom is the start of your editing adventure, but you can make the journey much smoother with a good setup in the Import Module. Apply Metadata, Keywords or even Presets, as well using a good file naming system can make your masterpieces easy to find and share. For money or for pleasure.
Import isn’t the only way to get photos, so we’ll look at other methods that get files in or, trigger Import in a different way. Finally we’ll take a look at ways that can get your photos partially edited, so you end up with well named, keyworded files that are close to ready for Export.
