Getting Your Photos Out of Lightroom (Exporting)

Ever since I started teaching people about Lightroom, there has been one question that I keep getting. It seems everyone understands how to get photos into Lightroom and there are lots of tutorials on processing and editing those photos once they’re in. However, the one thing that I keep getting questions on is how to get your photos out of Lightroom. There’s not really a “Save” button like there is in Photoshop. Instead, there’s an export dialog. It’s here that you can save your raw photos into any of the popular image formats such as JPEG, PSD, TIFF, or even DNG. It’s actually really easy and this week’s video covers just what you need to know.
