Lesson Info

Lightroom: Importing and Albums

Well, let's get involved in importing those images right now. So we're gonna click on this plus button. That's your add photos button. Now, if you're going to add your photos directly from your camera card, you're gonna see that camera card is plugged in right here. That EOS_DIGITAL, that's my Canon digital card. But I've already put the images into a folder on my computer, so I know where those are. I'm gonna go to the Browse option, click on Browse, and I'm going to go look for those images at the museum, the portraits that we took there, and I'm gonna hit Review for Import. When I click on Review for Import, it's gonna show me the images that it wants to import. That's for me to confirm. And then right above the images, it says Add to Album. Now I'm going to add them to an album that I've already created called Train Museum. Click on Train Museum. That way they're already organized when they're imported rather than me having to find them and then put them into that album. So that's ...

a really important thing to do. And then we're gonna click on Add 94 Photos. And it's gonna go through the process of importing those images and putting them into that album, which is now down here, called Train Museum. It's at the very bottom. I'm gonna click on that, and now all of these images are being imported, and you can see that they're also being uploaded to the Adobe Cloud so that they're secured. So I will have a copy here and I'll have a copy up on the cloud.
