Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 is a great tool for managing your photos AND videos. That’s right, you can import videos into Lightroom too! Starting with Lightroom 4 you can trim your videos and even adjust the color and contrast right inside of Lightroom. That’s just one of a number of good reasons to upgrade to Lightroom 4 if you’re using a previous version. You can import video in Lightroom 3, but you can’t edit it inside of Lightroom.
As a hybrid photographer I appreciate the ability to do basic video editing in the software that I’m already using for my still photographs (Lightroom 4). In this vlog post I’ll give you a few tips for editing video inside of Lightroom 4. I’ll also show you how I use Lightroom 4 to prepare my stills and videos for uploading to ProShow Web for my hybrid eScapes. These techniques apply equally well if you are preparing images for eTemplates and eProducts too!
Lightroom 4 has limited optons for exporting video, but it works great for a hybrid eScape or eProduct.
