September 11, 2015
In our previous articles, we already tackled and covered several topics as to understanding what Adobe Lightroom is and how it help photographers. We also had a quick overview about Lightroom’s smooth interface. After talking about the program’s basic features and services, now is the right time to understand some of the hidden features of Lightroom.
Before we can start using the tools in Lightroom, we need to import images to work with. That is the reason why we came up with this article, we want to give you some ideas on how to import images in Adobe Lightroom’s interface.
I am currently using the latest version of Lightroom to guide you over the process of importing pictures to the program. Some say that this process is very easy, but actually, it’s very tricky if you have no idea what Lightroom is all about.
Importing Images To Lightroom
Adobe Lightroom is a photo editing tool which helps photographers save time and effort in editing images. It is also a post-processing tool, which means, in order for you to start using the program, you will need to import images from your PC to Lightroom’s image library. Again, importing images is easy since it can be done using the program’s import option.
Step By Step Tutorial on how to import images:
- Open Adobe Lightroom
- Click import located at the bottom left corner in the library module.
- Select import photos and video of the selection panel
- Choose desired images to be edited and you’re done.
Essentially, the program should automatically launch the import service as soon as you’re done connecting the program to the external storage device on your PC. If it does not show, you have to go to the preferences option in edit menu and check the import dialog when memory is detected box.
