Lightroom Versions Module
versions are one of my favorite attributes of light room mobile. What it allows you to do is create multiple images of the same piece of art so you can export it or experiment whatnot. So here's where you'll find the versions tab. It's on the far right of the little editing modules. Seriously, you're gonna absolutely love these, and what they allow you to do is save multiple versions of the same photo. Keep in mind, this is always non destruct. So how do we do this? So let's say we go here to my friend Jack. You know, I love Jack. I shoot him all the time, and what you'll see here on my versions is I have an original. I have a number one where I blurred the background and made the background a little more blue. Original Version one, Version two. Now on version two, I did some sharpening, and I d saturated the background. And then on Version three, I blurred the background. And here's the thing. All of this is non destruct. You can go back and forth as much as you want. This is great fo...
r social. You could say about a square image for social one for Facebook, etcetera. So let's take a look at this. Let's go back to the images. So let's say I have this image here and I'm going to go to my versions and you'll see I have an original and then I have a crop version. Let's go to the original and I'm gonna hit Apply. That does not mean I lost any of the other versions. It just means I'm starting from scratch. So I'm on this image. I'm gonna hit auto. I'm gonna use the crop tool. And in fact, you know what? I'm not gonna manually crop it. I'm gonna auto crop it. So I'm gonna click on the crop and go toe one by one square because I think I'm gonna save this for Instagram hit. Okay, I'm going to hit auto for the Color Bell. I mean, for the contrast. I think I'm going to just do a quick effect and just for giggles, make it black and white. Okay, let's say for giggles, this is my next version. All you have to do is go to your versions tab and you'll see I still have the original, and then I click on the create version, and I call it black and white for insta. You call it whatever works for you and hit create, and then I can go back. I can keep editing this if I want by just hitting the back button. I could do the geometry. I could do optics. Whatever you want. It doesn't matter. And now, if I go back to versions, if I want these new changes to be applied to the version, I have to create a brand new version. Maybe I'll call this to create and the instant one. I could decide if I want to keep it, or if I want to click on the far right here and delete it now that I have a new one. So it's ever flexible. There's tons. You can dio you can set it on auto, see this auto button? But I'm going to tell you I don't like the auto button. It makes thes different versions, depending on what you've done in the editing, and I feel a little too out of control on this. So for my personal taste, I don't like this one so much, but look, you'll see ideo lots of versions. Look at the side, my original and my black and white. And then I have my current. And then again, I can go back to the editing. Maybe I go to color, do a color grading hit done. Go back to my versions, create a version and call it three and color or whatever whatever you want. Why don't I spell it right? That's a novel idea. And now I have three color. I have black and white, or I still have my original Seriously, this allows you to go in and oh my gosh, try all sorts of effects out and never losing one of them. So give it a try versions, they'll make you happy.
