The Power of Lightroom 4 Metadata, Presets, and Collections.

Photographer/filmmaker/instructor Eduardo Angel will show you how to take control of your photographs with metadata settings to optimize images more efficiently with Adobe Lightroom 4

Skill Level: Intermediate to advanced levels

The more photos we take and produce the more tools we need to manage, organize, and find them. In this advanced session, Eduardo Angel will teach you to take advantage of camera EXIF metadata and how to apply, sync, save and harness the power of XMP and IPTC data to add value to your files. This session will address the following:

• Building, harvesting and applying keywords to make your images easily find able in Lightroom and searchable on the Internet to increase sales
• Using metadata to understand your own photography more and make informed purchasing decisions
• Customizing the Lightroom filters for quick and meaningful searches
• Working with the Map module for Location Scouting and Client Services
• Customizing the Selective Adjustment tools with presets to speed up image retouching and productivity
• Using the IPTC data fields to record image usage agreements
• Working with Export presets to prepare images for the U.S. Copyright Office

“I have taken many sem­i­nars given by Eduardo. I can­not rec­om­mend him highly enough. He has taught me every­thing I know about Light­room 2 and 3. I look for­ward to hir­ing him to teach me more on a one to one basis. Besides being extremely knowl­edge­able, Eduardo is per­son­able and funny, which makes his sem­i­nars even that much bet­ter.”
