We’ve just released our second DAM Book Guide, Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom 5. This all-new multimedia eBook presents a straightforward but powerful strategy for organizing your Photo Library with Lightroom.
The book breaks the process of organization down into three layers, storing the photos, tagging the photos and making projects. It goes on to a show you how Lightroom is designed for you to work in exactly this manner.
You’ll be able to enhance the security of your images, simplify your workflow, and make more interesting creations once you understand this simple structure.
The video below shows the concept in action.
As with my previous book, Multi-Catalog Workflow with Lightroom 5, this book is a true multi-media creation. I’ve split the content between text and video. I outline the important concepts and list the workflow steps in text form, so that you can find them easily when you want to put the workflows into practice.
Animated flowcharts, like the one in the video above, help you understand workflow on a conceptual level. These are accompanied by 7 hours of workflow video that let you master the most important organizational tools in Lightroom.
This book is written for all Lightroom users, from the novice to the expert. In the last year and a half I’ve been explaining organization with these concepts, I’ve found that they benefit the entire gamut of photographer experience.
The book is available for digital download from our ContentShelf store. We’ll have a DVD version available soon, and we’re looking into a print version.
