Setting up Lightroom and Photoshop to work together ensures you’re passing the highest-quality photos back and forth between the two programs.
Preparing for this lesson
Before starting this lesson, be sure you do the following:
Follow the instructions in the “Getting Started” lesson at the beginning of this book for setting up an LPCIB folder on your computer, downloading the lesson files to that LPCIB folder, and creating an LPCIB catalog in Lightroom.
Download the Lesson 4 folder from your account page at www.peachpit.com to username/Documents/LPCIB/Lessons.
Launch Lightroom, and open the LPCIB catalog you created in “Getting Started” by choosing File > Open Catalog and navigating to the LPCIB Catalog. Alternatively, you can choose File > Open Recent > LPCIB Catalog.
Add the Lesson 4 files to the LPCIB catalog using the steps in the Lesson 1 section “Importing photos from a hard drive.”
In the Library module’s Folders panel, select Lesson 4.
Set the Sort menu beneath the image preview to File Name.
In the next section, you’ll learn how to set up various preferences and settings in both Lightroom and Photoshop so they work together as a team.
