VIDEO #1

How to Set Up Adobe Lightroom’s Preferences for Maximum Efficiency. This is a series of YouTube videos designed to teach you how to use Adobe Lightroom Classic, and in this case Adobe Lightroom Classic Preferences. I will try and update the videos as the program changes over the years. If you are new to Adobe Lightroom Classic, follow the video order from 1-?. This is the same order I use to teach Adobe Lightroom Classic in a college class. However, if you are just interested in learning a specific technique, free free to jump around.

I will have two different types of videos in this series. Videos designed to teach you how to use the program, and videos designed to show you how to adjust an image. Some of how I look at or tone an image can be subjective. I try to be as straight forward as possible to let you know when some should be done a certain way, verses a subject adjustment.

Most people never take a look at Adobe Lightroom Classic Preferences, but there are some adjustments that need to be made to make the program more efficient. The two most important are external editing and performance. Performance settings will really depend on your computer specifications. All the Adobe programs require a large amount of RAM, a good processor and hard drive space.

Hi John. I’m an 80 year old newcomer to LR Classic though not to photo editing itself. I’ve subscribed to your channel and am finding your videos very helpful indeed. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

    I have a Facebook Group called, “Learn Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Bridge.” I created this group because I get a lot of questions on YouTube that are hard to answer unless I can see the issue. This will allow a place you can ask questions, and more importantly post images and videos.
