The Lightroom 3 Library Workflow Introduction and Catalog Import

By Pye Jirsa on May 16th 2011

(The Lightroom video tutorial in this post is just under the introductory text below. The working files for this article can be downloaded below.)

Welcome to the Library Workflow Chapter. All of our Lightroom Video Tutorials in this chapter are going to focus specifically on how to utilize the Lightroom Library functions and features in your actual workflow.

To do this, we have prepared a new set of working files from a single shoot. We will get back to the previous working files once we move on to the Develop Module. But, for now, it was necessary to have a set of images that we could actually cull, organize and manage within the Library Module. So before starting, be sure to download the exercise files below.

With each article, we will also be posting the completed catalog file which will have all of the changes included from that articles video tutorial.

In this first introduction video, we will walk over what we are going to do in the workflow chapter, as well as create our Lightroom catalog file and import our new exercise file images.

Enjoy!
