Fresh Fuel for Getting Started in Lightroom

by Colleen Wheeler

Identity Plate

If you've just discovered Lightroom or you just haven't had a chance to get in there and start working with it, check out the Getting Started section of Inside Lightroom (over there on the right). We've put a bunch of handy articles and tutorials there to help you get going. When everybody around you (well, around me) is already drilling down to nuanced effects and features, it's nice to know there's a place to "start at the start."

New this week is an excerpt from Mikkel Aaland's Photoshop Lightroom Adventure that shows you how to set your Identity Plate. Nothing like seeing your name or logo at the top of the window to really make you feel like you're taking charge of the environment. It's great for identifying your work in slideshows and on web galleries too.
